1.5/4
The cinematic equivalent of being poked in the ribs with a fork for two hours, this relentlessly irritating comedy redefines the term 'over the top' -- and we don't mean that as a compliment.

Blade II (2002)
A pleasurably jacked-up piece of action moviemaking.

Revives a genre that's been listing badly, infusing it with wit and intelligence and a welcome shot of indie energy.

Showtime (2002)
[N]o matter how much good will the actors generate, Showtime eventually folds under its own thinness.

Ice Age (2002)
If all of Ice Age had been about the tenacious rodent's misadventures, the movie might have been a minor classic. But Scrat is a minor supporting character, and Ice Age is just passable entertainment.

Scotland, PA is Macbeth done with bell-bottoms, fast food and absolutely no pretension. It's that last bit that makes this amiable, shaggy Shakespeare satire so engaging -- and so disposable, too.

3/4
Moretti is interested in simple behavior, captured at a polite but insightful distance, and this quiet, subtly moving drama says more about the qualities that make us human with a whisper than most other movies can say with a shout.

The Time Machine isn't so much an adaptation of H.G. Wells' seminal novel as it is an appropriation. The film borrows liberally from the book, but doesn't treat it with much respect or affection or even understanding.

If the dramatics of the movie fail to engage as fully as they should, Kandahar remains fascinating as a piece of lyrical journalism.

.5/4
Wallace has fashioned a gung-ho piece of conventional entertainment that would have been a natural fit for John Wayne but today feels a bit too naive for its own good.

Romantic comedy and Dogme 95 filmmaking may seem odd bedfellows, but they turn out to be delightfully compatible here.

Dragonfly (2002)
Dragonfly has no atmosphere, no tension -- nothing but Costner, flailing away. It's a buggy drag.

Hart's War (2002)
Unlike A Soldier's Story, which tackled the same theme within the confines of an engrossing, unpredictable story, too much of Hart's War feels like finger-wagging.

3.5/4
The film would have been a stunner under any circumstances, but with the situation in Afghanistan and the Middle East worsening on a daily basis, No Man's Land feels even more relevant.

This is the kind of European film you rarely see anymore, with characters and circumstances that are easily debatable. Two viewers may never reach the same conclusion about the film.

3.5/4
A profoundly hopeful and optimistic film about people's ability to bounce back from just about anything.

Storytelling (2002)
The work of someone who has read too much of his own press, and in his rush to make a film to address critics, forgot to come up with a movie worth seeing.

Although this may be no one's idea of a pretty story, Corben manages to make it utterly absorbing.

La ville est tranquille is not depressing, but a sense of sadness permeates the film. As dramatic as it is, Guediguian's point is well taken: this town will remain quiet.

Crush (2002)
What Crush lacks in substance and originality, it makes up for with sheer likability.

Chop Suey (2001)
Weber's eclectic, grandly engaging documentary, is as personal as movies get, a generous and candid first-person exploration of the wide-ranging influences that inform the photographer's work.

Birthday Girl won't make you forget Kidman's better work, but it's not a film you long to excise from your memory.

A creepy, entertaining psychological thriller that pays off handsomely with a bone-chilling conclusion.

What could have been a neat little story about believing in yourself is swamped by heavy-handed melodrama.

Perhaps it will prompt some researchers not only to learn of the symptoms but to look further at the cause.

Lantana (2002)
Even in its quiet moments, the movie is possessed by a moody, tenebrous aura that reflects the characters' state of mind.

Not a great work but wields powerful weapons in its director and its star.

Piñero (2002)
