Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
11% A Man Apart (2003) Yes, Vin Diesel still rocks. But you wouldn't know it from this dreary, predictable sub-Traffic action flick.‐

37% Spun (2003) This tale of Southern California speed freaks works too hard for its high.‐

83% Amandla! A Revolution in Four-Part Harmony (2003) A beautiful movie about the power of music, about the power of being right.‐

23% Biker Boyz (2003) Biker Boyz is about fast motorcycles and the tough dudes -- and even tougher chicks -- who soup them up in illegal street races. Unfortunately, it's about more than that.‐

84% Narc (2002) About the best thing you could say about Narc is that it's a rock-solid little genre picture. Whether you like it or not is basically a matter of taste.‐

78% 25th Hour (2003) A clumsy, oh-well story about the moral quandary of a drug-dealing recidivist who more or less deserves to go to jail.‐

69% Personal Velocity: Three Portraits (2002) In a way, it plays like a dated feminist tract, one of those works that wants to show women making tough decisions and being emotionally resilient, but is at root about them being screwed over by men.‐

88% Roger Dodger (2002) There's a lot of tooth in Roger Dodger. But what's nice is that there's a casual intelligence that permeates the script.‐

26% Formula 51 (2002) Director Yu seems far more interested in gross-out humor than in showing us well-thought stunts or a car chase that we haven't seen 10,000 times.‐

86% 24 Hour Party People (2002) The bad thing about 24 Hour Party People is that it's blindly ambitious, garishly self-indulgent and reckless with the truth. The good thing is it knows all these things. And the best thing is that it might be a great movie.‐

39% Men in Black II (2002) Instead of inhabiting the same world of his original, the delightful 1997 Men in Black, or inventing a new world, this update kitschifies it, rendering it into a silly joke.‐

92% Dogtown and Z-Boys (2001) The problem is that Peralta wants it all, and that it doesn't all add up.‐

92% Nine Queens (Nueve reinas) (2002) A people pleaser that makes use of dozens of great movie tricks and manages to sprinkle great lines throughout.‐

73% The Piano Teacher (La Pianiste) (2001) This is a smart movie that knows its classical music, knows its Freud and knows its Sade.‐
Read More | Posted Apr 19, 2002
86% Son of the Bride (2002) While it's not as fantastical as Amelie or as brutish as No Man's Land, it has something that neither of those movies have: a sort of measured everyday realism.‐

3% Rollerball (2002) John McTiernan's botched remake may be subtler than Norman Jewison's 1975 ultraviolent futuristic corporate-sports saga. It's also stupider.‐
Read More | Posted Feb 13, 2002
73% The Count of Monte Cristo (2002) The classic book had a lot of complex, smart things to say about revenge. The movie doesn't.‐

93% (2001) An engrossing documentary follows two friends as they soar and crash with the dot-com wave.‐
Read More | Posted May 10, 2001
54% The Legend of 1900 (La leggenda del pianista sull'oceano) (1999) Giuseppe Tornatore's tale of a ship-bound piano virtuoso drowns in its own treacle.‐
