American Pie (1999)
American Pie is both funny and foul, alternately frank and full of it.
Posted Jan 1, 2000
4
A glorified TV movie.
Posted Jan 1, 2000
5
Written with such murderous gravity, certainty and gloomy solemnity ... that it tends to kill our interest.
Posted Jan 1, 2000
6
Instinct (1999)
Heavy on formula and lean on revelation.
Posted Jan 1, 2000
7
A fiery masterpiece!

Bedazzled (2000)
Watchable as she may be, Hurley is not the Devil for this movie.
Posted Jan 1, 2000
9
Spins the most interesting modern re-interpretation of the Austen canon.

10
One of the year's best.

11
A labor of love.

12
Arlington Road is a movie trying so hard for intelligence, quality and deeper meanings, you can almost sense the strain under the celluloid.
Posted Jan 1, 2000
13
Timecode (2000)
Figgis has devised a genuinely novel way to shoot and experience a feature-length film.
Posted Jan 1, 2000
14
I found much of it as dispiriting as a museum tour conducted in soporific tones by an overexposed TV pundit.

15
Watching this movie is like being wired to a TV set on permanent channel-surf mode!
Posted Jan 1, 2000
16
Bowfinger (1999)
A wonderfully sharp-witted, goofily exuberant movie!
Posted Jan 1, 2000
17
If the creation of paranoia is entertainment, Enemy of the State works.
Posted Jan 1, 2000
18
At its center, it has Carrey, whose nasty, catty Grinch is a hoot and a half.
Posted Jan 1, 2000
19
The film is a too-loud, poorly directed and seriously overedited addition to the tired genre of double-crossing international conspiracy movies.
Posted Jan 1, 2000
20
Missing from the mix are any characters with whom you'd want to spend one minute around a campfire.
Posted Jan 1, 2000
21
Sparkling with moonbeams and wit!
Posted Jan 1, 2000
22
A film that wants to be both simultaneously slick and tender and misses both by a country mile.
Posted Jan 1, 2000
23
A soggy comedy.
Posted Jan 1, 2000
24
One moment it is clever and fresh, and the next it becomes stupid.
Posted Jan 1, 2000
25
Keeping the Faith is too long and uneven.
Posted Jan 1, 2000
26
The Skulls (2000)
To call this movie simply absurd is almost to pay it a complement.
Posted Jan 1, 2000

4/4
28
The football scenes are involving, the acting is up to snuff, and there is something about those last days of high school that remains a solid background for even the most familiar of stories.
Posted Jan 1, 2000
29
Delightful songs and good cheer.
Posted Jan 1, 2000
30
The Haunting (1999)
In The Haunting, the moviemakers succeed in something very difficult: creating a haunted house with real personality and terror.
Posted Jan 1, 2000
31
It rocks hard and sweetly, making that past live and sing for us. I loved this movie madly, and so will many of you.
Posted Jan 1, 2000
32
Another borderline-absurd scenario.
Posted Jan 1, 2000

3.5/4
34
The movie taps into a vein of Dickensian sentiment, nightmare and idealism, ribaldry and tragedy that give it that part-dark, part-shining fairytale quality that imbues most King tales and all three of Darabont's features.
Posted Jan 1, 2000
35
Running Free (2000)
Until we really know what animals are thinking, it's probably best to leave talking animal stories in the care of comedic filmmakers.
Posted Jan 1, 2000
36
Tarzan (1999)
Entertaining and spectacular!
Posted Jan 1, 2000
37
Mickey is a limply derivative, disappointingly trivial and hokey fish-out-of-water crime comedy!
Posted Jan 1, 2000

39
The Yards (2000)
A rare and often quite good try at making a thriller with real people and believable contemporary backgrounds.
Posted Jan 1, 2000
40
A dark comedy in the muckraking mode that starts out murderously well but then begins to unravel -- just like Russ' misbegotten schemes.
Posted Jan 1, 2000
41
An odd little ghoul too cleaned up to survive, a bloodless vampire movie that's mostly lifeless as well.
Posted Jan 1, 2000
42
Contains more laugh-out-loud moments than The Replacements and Nutty Professor II: The Klumps combined.
Posted Jan 1, 2000
43
Director Risa Bramon Garcia and writer Shana Larsen obviously know their history and geography, and they've nailed the feel of the early '80s in the East Village.

X-Men (2000)
45
3.5/4
46
3.5/4
A stirring, emotionally true testament to foolish bravery as well as shameful evidence of the severity with which it is so often punished.
Posted Jan 1, 2000

3.5/4
The Limey (1999)
Intoxicatingly well-crafted!
Posted Jan 1, 2000

4/4
The Graduate (1967)

2.5/4
Dogma (1999)
The result is a mish-mash of tones in which such absurdities as singer Alanis Morissette's appearance as God undercut any emotional responses you might have to the climaxes involving Bartleby and Bethany.
