Posted Dec 21, 2001

Posted Dec 21, 2001

Posted Dec 21, 2001

Posted Dec 21, 2001
2.5/5 Kill Me Later (2001) Ted Murphy Dana Lustig has taken a fairly heavy-handed approach, treating the material as if it were the basis of a longform music video ... EDIT
Posted Dec 21, 2001
4/5 L.I.E. (2001) Ted Murphy ... the characters are so well-drawn and well-acted and the ideas raised are provocative without being overly exploitive. EDIT
Posted Dec 21, 2001

Posted Dec 21, 2001
1.5/5 Planet of the Apes (2001) Ted Murphy ... not a "remake" so much as a "revisal," a new take on old material. The problem is, no one connected with the film seems to have any idea just what that "take" is. EDIT
Posted Dec 21, 2001
2.5/5 The Princess Diaries (2001) Ted Murphy "The Princess Diaries" requires a lot of suspension of disbelief, and if an audience isn't willing to go there, then the film simply doesn't work. EDIT
Posted Dec 21, 2001
4/5 Russian Doll (2001) Ted Murphy Weaving is wonderful as always but the real surprise is Novikova who displays a quirky charm and movie star charisma in her first lead role. EDIT
Posted Dec 21, 2001
2.5/5 Two Can Play That Game (2001) Ted Murphy "Two Can Play That Game" has some amusing moments, showcases a terrific cast, but falters in real matters of the heart. EDIT
Posted Dec 21, 2001
4/5 Tortilla Soup (2001) Ted Murphy Although there are some rather broad strokes to the comedy (and a couple of characters that verge on caricature), "Tortilla Soup" ultimately serves up a tasty dish. EDIT
Posted Dec 21, 2001
2.5/5 Thomas in Love (2000) Ted Murphy "Thomas in Love" can be chalked up as a noble failure. EDIT
Posted Dec 21, 2001

Posted Dec 21, 2001
3.5/5 Songcatcher (2001) Ted Murphy ... like its prickly heroine, the film doesn't always achieve its goals ... EDIT
Posted Dec 21, 2001
2/5 Pearl Harbor (2001) Ted Murphy Ultimately, what can be said about the film is that it is a disappointment ... It also confirms what most industry people suspected: Michael Bay is no James Cameron. EDIT
Posted Dec 21, 2001
4/5 Pandaemonium (2000) Ted Murphy if one is to judge "Pandaemonium" on its own merits as a work of fiction, for the most part it succeeds. EDIT
Posted Dec 21, 2001
4/5 Our Song (2000) Ted Murphy While there are some minor flaws in "Our Song," it is a rich work that introduces three extraordinary young talents and marks a maturation in filmmaker [Jim] McKay. EDIT
Posted Dec 21, 2001
2.5/5 Original Sin (2001) Ted Murphy Cristofer takes liberties with the novel's downbeat ending and tacks on a happily ever after coda that seems more in keeping with something made under the studio system ... EDIT
Posted Dec 21, 2001
2.5/5 The Musketeer (2001) Ted Murphy "The Musketeer" is an unfortunate attempt to graft the lyrical artistry of a "Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon" onto an old-fashioned swashbuckler with disappointing results. EDIT
Posted Dec 21, 2001
3.5/5 Me, You, Them (2000) Ted Murphy One might argue that "Me You Them" could perhaps use a small infusion of MTV-style editing but this director trusts the material to unfold at the pace it requires. EDIT
Posted Dec 21, 2001
4/5 Lost and Delirious (2001) Ted Murphy Rarely has a filmmaker captured the essence of those moments between adolescence and adulthood with the skill and sensitivity Pool does. EDIT
Posted Dec 21, 2001
4/5 Last Resort (2000) Ted Murphy "Last Resort" does not have the feel of a fictional piece, but instead appears to be unfolding as the events occur. EDIT
Posted Dec 21, 2001
3/5 Lara Croft: Tomb Raider (2001) Ted Murphy A series of spectacular set pieces filled with eye-popping special effects, although [director Simon]West does fall back on his trademarked overuse of sound. EDIT
Posted Dec 21, 2001
1.5/5 The King Is Alive (2000) Ted Murphy ... sitting through "The King Is Alive" was a tedious exercise that tried my patience and bored me. EDIT
Posted Dec 21, 2001

Posted Dec 21, 2001

Posted Dec 21, 2001
4/5 Jackpot (2001) Ted Murphy "Jackpot" is a downbeat but effective character study ... EDIT
Posted Dec 21, 2001

Posted Dec 21, 2001
4.5/5 The Golden Bowl (2000) Ted Murphy This roundelay of relationships makes up the heart of the film and allows each of the four principals to offer sterling performances. EDIT
Posted Dec 21, 2001
3/5 Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within (2001) Ted Murphy Where "Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within" falters is not in the stunning visuals, but in its pedestrian script EDIT
Posted Dec 21, 2001
1.5/5 The Fast and the Furious (2001) Ted Murphy a jumbled blur, overlaid with a pulsating hip-hop score. EDIT
Posted Dec 21, 2001
1.5/5 Down to Earth (2001) Ted Murphy "Down to Earth" crashes instead of alighting on angels' wings. EDIT
Posted Dec 4, 2001
4/5 Divided We Fall (2000) Ted Murphy The comic elements are handled with a delicacy so that they do not overwhelm the dramatic underpinnings. EDIT
