B+ The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie (2004) Larry Carroll We're all goofy goobers deep down inside, and it's great news that there's finally a movie that invites us to embrace it. EDIT
Posted Nov 19, 2004
B- Raise Your Voice (2004) Larry Carroll As refreshing as it may be to see Duff shed tears, drop the 'like' and wear shirts that don't show off her midriff, this is more of a baby step than a giant leap forward. EDIT
Posted Oct 7, 2004
4/5 Set It Off (1996) Larry Carroll A tense, original caper film full of excellent performances, particularly by Queen Latifah EDIT
Posted Sep 17, 2004
C- Cellular (2004) Larry Carroll ...leaves the audience wondering whether it should laugh along or simply wince. EDIT
Posted Sep 17, 2004
A- Super Size Me (2004) Larry Carroll Feeds us the message quite literally that we are all poisoning ourselves to death in such a charming, hilarious, self-deprecating manner that you actually enjoy hearing it. EDIT
Posted May 11, 2004
B- Sleepers (1996) Max Colston The film's extremely good first half makes up for the extremely bad second half. EDIT
Posted Mar 28, 2004
A 28 Days Later (2002) Max Colston The best zombie film ever made. EDIT
Posted Mar 28, 2004
C Hidalgo (2004) Larry Carroll Capitulates to weak dialogue, poor pacing, and a half-hearted performance from mumbler Viggo Mortensen, leaving it to be remembered more for a few scenes than as a total film EDIT
Posted Mar 6, 2004
B- Starsky & Hutch (2004) Larry Carroll Director Phillips may have set out to update the classic TV show, but what he ended up with is a 21st-Century remake of 'Dragnet', the Tom Hanks-Dan Aykroyd two-star flick. EDIT
Posted Mar 6, 2004
B- Broken Lizard's Club Dread (2004) Max Colston I think I would have enjoyed it even more if the guys hadn't taken the horror part of the movie so seriously. EDIT
Posted Mar 1, 2004
D- Twisted (2004) Larry Carroll A complete jumble of a movie that could have a talking albino gnu wander into the last frame and not make any less sense EDIT
Posted Feb 27, 2004
B+ 50 First Dates (2004) Larry Carroll A delightful, breezy, eager-to-please tale of romance that will go down as a career highlight for both lead actors. EDIT
Posted Feb 14, 2004
B Barbershop 2: Back in Business (2004) Larry Carroll Some jokes hit and others miss, but the laughter, camaraderie and warmth will keep you smiling as much as it did the first time around. EDIT
Posted Feb 7, 2004
4/5 Pinocchio in Outer Space (1965) Larry Carroll One of the more bizarre movies I've ever seen, but a real blast to watch. If you can find this one, give it a shot. EDIT
Posted Feb 4, 2004
5/5 National Lampoon's Animal House (1978) Larry Carroll One of the all-time classic movies, and a career-defining performance by Belushi make this mandatory viewing for any movie lover. EDIT
Posted Feb 4, 2004
4/5 Real Life (1979) Larry Carroll A great, underrated, lost gem of a film that accurately predicted and lampooned reality television long before it ever came to be. EDIT
Posted Feb 4, 2004
4/5 Harlem Nights (1989) Max Colston Hilarious! EDIT
Posted Dec 23, 2003
4/5 Amos & Andrew (1993) Max Colston Cage and Jackson shine together. EDIT
Posted Dec 23, 2003
B+ Godzilla (1998) Max Colston A fun romp that actually contains quite a few messages inside. EDIT
Posted Dec 23, 2003
B+ Tommy Boy (1995) Max Colston An underrated piece of work that showcases off one of Farely's best performances. EDIT
Posted Dec 23, 2003
C- Wes Craven's New Nightmare (1994) Max Colston You'd think if Wes Craven came back he'd actually make it scary. But no. It's more of a drama than anything. EDIT
Posted Dec 22, 2003
F Freddy's Dead: The Final Nightmare (1991) Max Colston Not only the worst Nightmare, but one of the worst films ever made. EDIT
Posted Dec 22, 2003
B+ Dumb & Dumber (1994) Max Colston Even though the film runs out of steam with fifteen minutes left to go, it's still one of my favorite comedies. EDIT
Posted Dec 22, 2003
A+ Back to the Future Part II (1989) Max Colston By far the best of the trilogy. EDIT
Posted Dec 22, 2003
C Brainscan (1994) Max Colston An interesting idea, but never expands on it. EDIT
Posted Dec 22, 2003
A+ Dogma (1999) Max Colston Even though it deals with some heavy subject matter, Smith keeps it far from being a dark film. EDIT
Posted Dec 22, 2003
B+ Runaway Jury (2003) Max Colston ...after seeing this film, I realized jury duty does suck. EDIT
Posted Dec 22, 2003
B Calendar Girls (2003) Max Colston It truly saddens me that films like this are rewarded limited releases to leave room for the onslaught of regurgitated trash. EDIT
Posted Dec 20, 2003
A Alien (1979) Max Colston You won't even notice the grindings of your teeth falling into your lap. EDIT
Posted Dec 10, 2003
D Veronica Guerin (2003) Max Colston Schumacher repeatedly shoots himself in the foot..... EDIT
Posted Dec 10, 2003
3/4 Kill Bill: Vol. 1 (2003) Katherine Brodsky It's difficult for me to say whether this film is a masterpiece or a failed attempt at one. EDIT
Posted Oct 6, 2003
3.5/4 Lost in Translation (2003) Katherine Brodsky Occasionally come along tales told through the format of film that capture us completely within the narrative. This is one such film. EDIT
Posted Oct 5, 2003
C+ Jeepers Creepers 2 (2003) Larry Carroll Salva seems to suffer from 'premature direculation'. He shows his monster far too early, and far too often. EDIT
Posted Sep 12, 2003
3.5/4 American Splendor (2003) Katherine Brodsky In the end, American Splendor proves that 'ordinary Life is pretty interesting.' EDIT
Posted Aug 29, 2003
C American Wedding (2003) Larry Carroll When a film series starts ripping off Jerry Van Dyke sitcoms, that's a good sign it's time to throw in the towel. EDIT
Posted Aug 1, 2003
B+ Seabiscuit (2003) Larry Carroll I doubt it will seriously be remembered at Oscar time, but it sure beats Tomb Raider 2. EDIT
Posted Jul 25, 2003
B- Legally Blonde 2: Red, White & Blonde (2003) Larry Carroll A decent, but completely forgettable sequel. EDIT
Posted Jul 1, 2003
A- Down With Love (2003) Larry Carroll A buoyant, witty, and thoroughly charming film that brings you back to a 1963 that we can only wish existed EDIT
Posted May 22, 2003
F It Runs in the Family (2003) Larry Carroll Five years from now this will be remembered as the most expensive home movie ever made by a family. The DVD will look great on the Douglas family shelf - but God knows it won't be on anybody else's. EDIT
Posted Apr 28, 2003
B- The Real Cancun (2003) Larry Carroll If you're a fan of reality shows you'll probably enjoy this movie. But do you really want to pay $10 to see something that you can watch on TV for free? EDIT
Posted Apr 28, 2003
A- Identity (2003) Larry Carroll When you're leaving the theatre, you'll want to turn right around, throw down another ten bucks, and go see it again. It's that good. EDIT
Posted Apr 28, 2003
C Holes (2003) Larry Carroll Chances are, as you sit in that movie theatre and fidget alongside your kids, you won't find yourself digging Holes. EDIT
Posted Apr 18, 2003
C Bulletproof Monk (2003) Larry Carroll The script seems to have been developed with a desire for the bare minimum, and that work ethic has been passed on to the editing, special effects and fight choreography departments as well. EDIT
Posted Apr 18, 2003
B+ Lilya 4-Ever (2002) Larry Carroll A bleak, blistering, beautiful treasure of a film that presents wasted life in all its horrific vividness. EDIT
Posted Apr 15, 2003
A- Stevie (2002) Larry Carroll The director allows both lead characters to be seen as failures, remarkable for the fact that he himself is one of them. EDIT
Posted Apr 15, 2003
B Anger Management (2003) Larry Carroll Nicholson and Sandler play exceptionally well off each other EDIT
Posted Apr 11, 2003
D Under the City's Skin (2001) Larry Carroll A series of melodramatic moments that will have the audience rolling their eyes in disbelief - if they can keep them open, that is. EDIT
Posted Apr 9, 2003
C+ Cowboy Bebop: The Movie (2002) Larry Carroll The parts are better than the sum EDIT
Posted Apr 9, 2003
A- Phone Booth (2002) Larry Carroll A tight, suspenseful, compelling movie that may very well revolutionize the action film genre. EDIT
Posted Apr 4, 2003
C A Man Apart (2003) Larry Carroll This is a movie that should have starred one of the forgotten Baldwins and premiered at the bottom of a discount bin. EDIT
