There's really not much of anything to recommend about this movie except the opening. After that, Goldmember turns to pyrite.

3.5/4
In a summer overrun with movies dominated by CGI aliens and super heroes, it revigorates the mind to see a feature that concentrates on people, a project in which the script and characters hold sway.

Definitely in the guilty pleasure B-movie category, Reign of Fire is so incredibly inane that it is laughingly enjoyable.

This long-awaited screen adaptation of the Marvel super hero does not disappoint.

Dragonfly (2002)
Dragonfly would have made a suspenseful half-hour Twilight Zone episode or even an interesting one-hour Outer Limits presentation. But as a full-length feature film, Dragonfly rarely takes wing.

Queen of the Damned's target audiences are those younger moviegoers who attend raves and an appreciate the heavy metal and goth sensibilities. All others will probably find it alien terrain.

John Q (2002)
Washington overcomes the script's flaws and envelops the audience in his character's anguish, anger and frustration.

Holds limited appeal to those who like explosions, sadism and seeing people beat each other to a pulp.

A rather unexpected and satisfying finale may leave some viewers in disbelief, but I found it charming and emotionally correct.

Gosford Park (2001)
Gosford Park is steeped in grace and style, yet an undercurrent of tension buzzes throughout the proceedings.

Roger Deakins' artful black-and-white photography beautifully recreate the shadows and starkness of the noir film world, while Carter Burwell's score adds to the atmosphere.

A brilliant performance by Russell Crowe, who takes his audience on a terrifying journey inside a man tormented by self-created mental demons, propels A Beautiful Mind.

Hardball (2001)
Hardball may sound like an inner-city remake of The Bad News Bears, but the sunny, light touch of that film is nowhere to be found in this somber feature.
