Quills (2000)
While it may not have delivered a knock out, Quills certainly does pack a solid punch.

X-Men (2000)
This is what a summer blockbuster should look like -- smart, sexy, tight in all the right places.

Road Trip (2000)
The actors manage to lift Road Trip's humor over the top.

Rod Lurie, with the help of some great performances, has pieced together a smart political thriller that can hold its head high among the rest of its beltway brethren.

Girlfight (2000)
Kusama and her cast make the stale fresh with solid, gutwrenching performances and a firm commitment to instilling an edgy, perhaps feminine, spirit and energy to the classic sports story.

They say that the best comedy stems from truth, and this is the most painfully hilarious film in years.

Whipped (1999)
This isn't clever. This isn't smart. It's just bad.

Men of Honor (2000)
The story is inspiring. But Men of Honor just isn't inspired.

The thing to keep in mind is that when Altman isn't great, he still doesn't suck.

What makes for another intriguing plot is blown apart by unnecessarily long gun battles and a roster of distant, unsavory characters.

The story is compelling enough on its own to make a good (albeit overdone) action flick.

The Cell (2000)
A fascinating dreamscape of mythic imagery and Biblical undertones.

Best in Show (2000)
There's trendy funny and there's enduring funny. Christopher Guest has always steered away from the easy laughs and obvious parodies and delivered comedies that last.

4/10
The only thing this film pays forward is the trend of celebrating the bland, ballyhooing empty sentiments and honoring filmmaking by-the-numbers.

Cecil B. Demented is John Waters' best film and certainly the funniest movie this year.

The 6th Day (2000)
It's tough not to think that, despite the cutting edge subject matter, it's Arnold himself that's a little out of date.

With the new director's cut ... William Friedkin has found a way to make even more of your hair stand on end with some seriously creepy new scenes, improved special effects and a restored score.

Rarely are biopics funny and rarer still are they scary. Shadow of the Vampire manages to be both.

Hey, 'ja ever hear the one about the guy who was forced to watch yet another teen ensemble slasher flick? You know, the one where the guy can't take it any more, so he runs from the theater screaming?

Red Planet (2000)
There are only so many life or death deadlines we can be expected to stomach in one trip to Mars as the impossible repeatedly becomes the inevitable in these all or nothing scenarios.

A testament to the love and respect and diligence of director Ron Howard and his crew, screenwriters Jeffrey Price & Peter S. Seaman and committed, wonderful performances by the cast.

Instead of being the next great John Woo masterpiece, it is yet another in the growing roster of action flicks that merely seem to reek of his influence.

Frequency (2000)
Sure it's a little hokey and it may get a little tidy there near the end, but overall, it's a well-done movie.

[Crowe] has crafted a cast of fresh characters in a realm where cliches often fester, and he is blessed with actors who fulfill their promise.

No matter how bizarre or off-putting the film may be at times, it is infinitely more engrossing.

Bait (2000)
Bait is a relentless assault on the senses, heart-pounding and manifest.

Little Nicky (2000)
Nobody expects any character development or a real story from anything in the Sandler catalogue, but at least make the stupid jokes original.
