Rating Title/Year Author
Three Kings (1999) Randall King It's gutsy stuff, disturbing but funny and strangely captivating. EDIT
Posted Jan 1, 2000
The Talented Mr. Ripley (1999) Darryl Sterdan Many critics have called Ripley one of the year's best movies, and with good reason. EDIT
Posted Jan 1, 2000
Down to You (2000) Randall King Down to You is bad. Real bad. EDIT
Posted Jan 1, 2000
Jakob the Liar (1999) Randall King Even though director Peter Kassovitz tries hard to reproduce the soul-chilling despair of the ghetto, truth eludes Jakob The Liar. EDIT
Posted Jan 1, 2000
Eye of the Beholder (1999) Randall King McGregor's character is so devoid of interest, it makes one long for the redeeming charm of Jar Jar Binks. EDIT
Posted Jan 1, 2000
Where the Money Is (2000) Randall King The heist sequence is an almost mellow affair, and the sexual content is likewise unlikely to induce any heart attacks among Newman's age demographic. EDIT
Posted Jan 1, 2000
Drowning Mona (2000) Randall King The richest comedy is in the details and in throwaway bits of dialogue. EDIT
Posted Jan 1, 2000
The Way of the Gun (2000) Randall King A smarter-than -usual action movie. EDIT
Posted Jan 1, 2000
The Replacements (2000) Randall King Utilizing state-of-the-art methods in the science of statistics, I have determined there will be virtually no audience for The Replacements. EDIT
Posted Jan 1, 2000
Frequency (2000) Randall King Its own fancifully melodramatic way, Frequency's appeal as a unique little thriller doesn't get lost in the static. EDIT
Posted Jan 1, 2000
Anna and the King (1999) Randall King This version of Anna and the King plays it entirely too safe. EDIT
Posted Jan 1, 2000
Boys and Girls (2000) Randall King [The stars] are navel-gazing bores. EDIT
Posted Jan 1, 2000
The Bachelor (1999) Darryl Sterdan The Bachelor is just as dismal a failure -- the anti-date movie of the year. EDIT
Posted Jan 1, 2000
28 Days (2000) Randall King Bullock also covers herself with gratuitous comedy and predictable drama to prevent audiences from seeing the naked truth of addiction. EDIT
Posted Jan 1, 2000
Any Given Sunday (1999) Darryl Sterdan At its core Any Given Sunday is just another trite, win - one - for - the - Gipper paean to the gridiron. EDIT
Posted Jan 1, 2000
Man on the Moon (1999) Randall King Forman ends it all with a hint that Kaufman may still be with us, a narrative cop-out akin to the it-was- all- a-dream denouement. If he is alive, Andy Kaufman may be the only one in the theatre laughing. EDIT
Posted Jan 1, 2000
Final Destination (2000) Randall King For all the film's 95-minute length, the content is less substantial than 44 minutes of X-Files. EDIT
Posted Jan 1, 2000
Beautiful (2000) Randall King The movie's heroine is so tiresome, you can feel her projected image draining your life away. EDIT
Posted Jan 1, 2000
What Planet Are You From? (2000) Randall King Nichols' film is distinctive from his other sex comedies in that it aims lower than the brain. EDIT
Posted Jan 1, 2000
Supernova (2000) Randall King Supernova meekly goes where other sci-fi flicks, such as Alien, have gone before. EDIT
Posted Jan 1, 2000
The Flintstones in Viva Rock Vegas (2000) Randall King Ultimately, The Flintstones leaves one as cold as marble. EDIT
Posted Jan 1, 2000
Pitch Black (2000) Randall King If Pitch Black is a likable sci-fi thriller, it's because it has the heart of a cheeseball '70s disaster movie beneath the horror trappings of computer-generated mutant bats and winged demon aliens. EDIT
Posted Jan 1, 2000
The Whole Nine Yards (2000) Randall King Peet emerges as one of the most delightful female characters in the film. EDIT
Posted Jan 1, 2000
Pokémon the Movie 2000: The Power of One (2000) Randall King Hang on to your wallets, mom and dad. EDIT
Posted Jan 1, 2000
Erin Brockovich (2000) Randall King Director Steve Soderbergh wisely emphasizes Erin's personal growth over the crusade. EDIT
Posted Jan 1, 2000
Rules of Engagement (2000) Randall King A disservice to those soldiers it would celebrate. EDIT
Posted Jan 1, 2000
The Big Kahuna (1999) Randall King [Danny DeVito] has never been better than he is here. EDIT
Posted Jan 1, 2000
Keeping the Faith (2000) Randall King The film fleshes out the jokey premise with rather elaborate character development. EDIT
Posted Jan 1, 2000
The Road to El Dorado (2000) Randall King Very entertaining. EDIT
Posted Jan 1, 2000
Hanging Up (2000) Randall King It's particularly disappointing that Keaton demonstrates little of the quirky sensibility of her previous works, either as a director or an actress. EDIT
Posted Jan 1, 2000
The Original Kings of Comedy (2000) Randall King Though boasting four of the best black comics in the biz, this film by Spike Lee is not going to dethrone Richard Pryor Live as the funniest comedy concert film ever. EDIT
Posted Jan 1, 2000
Nurse Betty (2000) Randall King It's Zellweger's movie, and her charm proves to be just the right prescription to balance LaBute's astringent style. EDIT
Posted Jan 1, 2000
The Adventures of Rocky and Bullwinkle (2000) Randall King Bringing the cartoon characters into the real world requires a wild imagination. Credit scriptwriter Kenneth Lonergan for having it. EDIT
Posted Jan 1, 2000
Gossip (2000) Bruce Kirkland Gossip is just unbelievable. EDIT
Posted Jan 1, 2000
Where the Heart Is (2000) Randall King Lowell Ganz and Babaloo Mandel apparently couldn't resist dressing the movie up like a Baskin-Robbins ice cream cake with lots of precious, cutesy comic touches. EDIT
Posted Jan 1, 2000
Angela's Ashes (1999) Randall King Admirably performed. EDIT
