8/10 Shaft (2000) Mac Verstandig Excellent a film as it may be, don't expect Shaft to be a deep, intellectual picture. The movie truly is a Hollywood popcorn flick. EDIT

The Hurricane (1999) Mac Verstandig Denzel Washington gives yet another kick-ass performance. EDIT
Posted Jan 1, 2000
Toy Story 2 (1999) Mac Verstandig Toy Story 2 is the perfect film to carry the Disney torch into the next century. EDIT

2/10 Ready to Rumble (2000) Mac Verstandig The film has no real intent whatsoever other than to spew juvenile sight gags and jokes derived in the 4th grade boy's bathroom. EDIT
Posted Jan 1, 2000
6/10 Mission: Impossible 2 (2000) Mac Verstandig Kimball's work is always appealing to the eye yet never too noticeable so as to draw attention away from the movie's plot. EDIT
Posted Jan 1, 2000
Scream 3 (2000) Mac Verstandig The movie also has some more minor faults that hardly help its case. A fine example is when star Courtney Cox's hair grows about 16 inches in three minutes. EDIT
Posted Jan 1, 2000
8/10 Erin Brockovich (2000) Mac Verstandig It is the compelling story that demands the audience's respect with its early claim of truth. EDIT
Posted Jan 1, 2000

Posted Jan 1, 2000

Posted Jan 1, 2000
The Whole Nine Yards (2000) Mac Verstandig The Whole Nine Yards proves to be a hysterical blend of Airplane and Goodfellas. EDIT
Posted Jan 1, 2000

Posted Jan 1, 2000

Posted Jan 1, 2000
6/10 Snow Falling on Cedars (1999) Mac Verstandig Universal is marketing this film for Best Picture is an insult to the Academy's intellect. EDIT
Posted Jan 1, 2000
7/10 Rules of Engagement (2000) Mac Verstandig The acting is good, plot holes many and concession stand just down the hall. EDIT
Posted Jan 1, 2000
The Tigger Movie (2000) Mac Verstandig Unlike the recent family hit, Toy Story 2, The Tigger Movie has little to offer on any level other than that appealing to its five-year-old audience. EDIT

Posted Jan 1, 2000
5/10 Love & Basketball (2000) Mac Verstandig A mawkish, overly-poignant and clichéd movie that mindlessly bounces along without ever making a clear statement. EDIT
Posted Jan 1, 2000
Hanging Up (2000) Mac Verstandig The movie proves to be no more enjoyable than the resultant enormous phone bill. EDIT
Posted Jan 1, 2000
Angela's Ashes (1999) Mac Verstandig The two and a half hour duration goes at the rate of a Leslie Nielson death scene. EDIT
