The Apostle

The Apostle

Veteran actor Robert Duvall writes, directs, and stars in the story of an evangelist seeking redemption. For his performance in The Apostle, Duvall reaches a high point in his stellar career. It has earned him many well-deserved kudos on the awards circuits. What really makes The Apostle work is... [More]

Major League 3: Back To The Minors

Major League 3: Back To The Minors

The Major League franchise actually died with the second entry, but they've seen fit to make a third. Big mistake! Although, this installment is slightly better than the last, Major League 3 is short on laughs and even shorter on energy. T.V. actor Scott Bakula is hired to coach a minor league t... [More]

Art of War

Art of War

When a film is not screened for critics, it's usually a pretty bad sign. Thus I wasn't expecting a great deal from the new Wesley Snipes action opus Art of War. Wesley Snipes plays a man who does undercover work for the United Nations and finds his life turned upside down when he is accused of a... [More]

The Watcher

The Watcher

After a relatively engaging turn in the football folly The Replacements, Keanu Reeves has found something else to do before shooting back to back Matrix sequels. Someone convinced him to play a psycho in the uninvolving The Watcher, yet another serial killer flick that tries to add a new twist on a... [More]

The Tao of Steve

The Tao of Steve

This small independent film from newcomer Jenniphr Goodman tells the story of a most unexpected womanizer (the terrific Donal Logue), who meets his match in the form of a forgotten woman (co-writer Greer Goodman) from his past. The title refers to a philosophy that is constantly spouted by the film'... [More]

The Crew

The Crew

Yes, you are reading the star rating correctly. I think this is one of those cases when I went into the film with really low expectations, and actually came out moderately entertained. I haven't ever been very impressed by the mobster-comedy genre. I thought that Analyze This was an unfunny bore and... [More]

Highlander: Endgame

Highlander: Endgame

There have been a few sequels to Highlander now, and the peculiar thing is that the original wasn't even that big of a hit. Through the years, however, it's become quite a cult classic and even inspired a much more successful television series. Here's the deal. Highlanders are mythic beings also kno... [More]

Get Carter

Get Carter

When you think of screen icons, Sylvester Stallone's name often pops up. Back in the 70's, he virtually came out of nowhere with the classic underdog story Rocky. Sadly, the last decade hasn't been that kind to the Italian Stallion. It seems every film he appears in, he's sort of playing a caricatur... [More]

Meet The Parents

Meet The Parents

Ben Stiller and Robert DeNiro square off in this new comedy from Jay Roach (Austin Powers), a film that certainly has it's moments but isn't nearly as funny as I'd hoped. Stiller is Greg Focker (yes you read the last name right), a nurse who wishes for nothing more than to marry the woman of his dre... [More]

Cecil B. Demented

Cecil B. Demented

First of all I must confess. I've always been a big fan of John Waters. As disgusting as Pink Flamingos was, it's an infectious film that I've seen quite a few times. My personal favorite of the Waters catalog has to be the rambunctious and over the top Desperate Living. The the last decade or so ha... [More]

The Original Kings of Comedy

The Original Kings of Comedy

First of all, it should be noted that although this film is directed by Spike Lee, he hasn't done anything special in terms of technical style. This is, after all, a stand up comedy concert film, and the action pretty much speaks for itself. The Original Kings of Comedy are comprised of comics C... [More]

Boiler Room

Boiler Room

Perhaps the biggest surprise at the festival was this stock broker thriller from first time director Ben Younger. I guess you could call this film Wall Street meets Glengarry Glen Ross. Thanks to endless energy, however, and some terrific performances, Boiler Room never feels like a cheap rip off of... [More]

The Big Kahuna

The Big Kahuna

High on the heels of his incredible turn in American Beauty, Kevin Spacey returns as a lubricant salesman in the fabulous The Big Kahuna, a film written by Roger Rueff based on his play Hospitality Suite. Even more incredible, this was the first thing Rueff ever wrote and he was a chemical engineer... [More]

Erin Brockovich

Erin Brockovich

Leave it to independent film guru Steven Soderbergh (Sex Lies and Videotape, Kafka, and Out of Sight) to showcase what may be the best performance of Julia Roberts' career. In this true story, Roberts plays the title role, a single mother struggling to find work to support her three children. She ge... [More]

The Contender

The Contender

It seems that now is the perfect time for a political drama, given the fact that election day is just around the corner. Give The Contender kudos for perfect timing. In The Contender, Joan Allen plays a politician next in line for the Vice Presidency. Gary Oldman plays a nasty Republican Congr... [More]
