Tomb Raider is the cinematic equivalent of opening Al Capone's vault...

Even the dancing ducks from Village of the Giants can't compare to the sheer stupidity on display in this film.

Olivier is Archie Rice, and he's the reason to see the movie, above all else.

Evolution (2001)
As a comedy, it's not funny. As a science fiction film, it's not compelling. And as simple, no-brainer entertainment, it falls far short of being worthwhile.

Dark Days (2000)
Dark Days attacks our wastefulness and insensitivity to the underprivileged, and is enhanced by the use of humour and understatement.

4.5/5
Becomes breathless in a way that even Tolkien couldn't manage; the second half feels like the kind of grand action picture we'd been missing all year.

3.5/5
Though flawed, this is a mature discussion of loss, denial and sanity that engages both the audience's heart and its head.

Just say no to Recess Christmas, my friends. The Disney Rat has had enough to eat. Let him fast a little for penance.

Burns has a way with actors and a way with dialogue, but he hasn't matured to the point where he can offer up a slice of life that doesn't feel pre-programmed.

And yet, all things considered, the team behind this film seems to have done the best job possible.

Gandhi (1982)
Attenborough's heavy-handed direction nearly derails the film, but Kingsley's performance saves the day -- a rare thing of beauty, a joy that will be with us forever.

4.5/5
The work of a photographer who has gone to the summery coast of Maine and brought back snapshots of heartache and loss, of an idyll irrevocably disturbed.

I'm usually not overly fond of direct-to-video thrillers, as they oftentimes tend to be overwrought, so imagine my surprise when I stumbled upon If I Die Before I Wake.

The Dish (2001)
A gentle, heartwarming Aussie comedy

the film comes off as an academic exercise instead of a living, breathing testament to the ideas it presents.

Cape Fear (1991)
Scorsese boldly takes hold of this b-movie thriller and throttles every inch of dread and paranoia that the genre's conventions allow

Total Recall (1990)

This is one of the rare special edition packages where I wanted to watch and listen to everything on the disc because it's GOOD, and not because I had to as a reviewer.

The film easily juggles the brutally harrowing murders with jokey scenes involving everything from circumcision to bendy Mickey Mouse dolls...

Abbott & Costello's final film for Universal sadly shows the wear that the two great comedians were starting to feel after 15 years of being on top of the comedy charts.

13 Ghosts (1960)
...the other [ghosts] just seem to be there only to make excuses to use the ghost viewer on enough occasions to keep the audience from getting restless.

Plenty is played for laughs, but not even Fargo was as sincere, as cogent, as...serious.

Cats & Dogs (2001)
Unfortunately, Cats & Dogs doesn't know whether it wants to be extremely clever about its jokes or annoyingly juvenile about them.

Not a strike against Yang's similarly themed Yi Yi, but I found What Time? to be more engaging on an emotional level, funnier, and on the whole less detached.

The Well (1998)
Despite a deliberate paced and occasional pretentions, this is an effective psychological thriller that studies sexual repression.

Querelle (1982)
. . . as much an attack on Fassbinder's own body of work as it is an attack on the conventions of sexual identity in film.

Anderson does wonderful things with creating moods and mixtures of moods - he blurs the edges and we celebrate his freedom.

Zahn has one bit where he simply says the phrase "Come on" 25 different ways that has me on the floor every time I see it.

Blow (2001)
While Blow isn't a bad film by any means, it's just difficult to sympathize with a drug smuggler.

Re-Animator (1985)
Through all the gore and darkly comic situations offered up by the script, a sense of reality has been deeply infused.
