Rex Harrison is sexy, Irene Dunne is prim, but the racism is evident.

XXX (2002)
XXX is James Bond for the grunge crowd, an unapologetically silly adrenaline rush that is pure escapism.

Blood Work (2002)
This is a murder mystery in which fitting together the pieces of the puzzle takes precedence over the solution.

Signs (2002)
From the opening credits, dominated by an intriguing score by James Newton Howard, Signs draws you in, holding you in expectation as Shyamalan peels his story as leisurely as if he were paring an apple.

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.

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.

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

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.
