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]

Little Secrets

Little Secrets

Few movies in recent memory have been as positively gentle as Little Secrets. As sappy as this film gets, it's pretty hard to ignore it's big heart. The delightful Evan Rachel Wood is extremely likable as a sweet natured fourteen year old with aspirations of becoming a professional violinist. W... [More]

The Ring

The Ring

Wow, this was a switch. A scary movie that's actually scary! And in even a bigger switch, this creepy flick is PG-13, pushing the very limits of the screwed up MPAA system. Based on the Japanese film of the same name, The Ring involves one hell of an urban legend. This scare-fest revolves around... [More]

Blue Crush

Blue Crush

There's almost nothing better than seeing a trailer for a film that looks like absolute garbage, then actually watching the movie and being pleasantly surprised. Such is the case with the breezy Blue Crush. Is this a piece of classic cinema? No, but it is extremely likable, and far superior to some... [More]

Signs

Signs

Director M. Night Shyamalan has emerged as one hell of a storyteller. Much of his style is reminiscent of an early Spielberg. With the beautifully crafted Sixth Sense, this skilled showman re-created the ghost story. Two years later he followed that picture up with the brilliant and vastly underrat... [More]

Sweet Home Alabama

Sweet Home Alabama

Reese Witherspoon has come a long way since her debut in the wonderful and little seen Man in the Moon. She's given us pure, comic electricity (see Election), bold and risky (see Twilight), and proof that her charm can carry a movie (see Legally Blonde). With Sweet Home Alabama, Witherspoon's likabi... [More]

From Hell

From Hell

The new gothic thriller From Hell is an absolute milestone for the Hughes Brothers. They struggled mighty hard to bring this tale of Jack the Ripper to the big screen. And while their latest effort is major departure from Menace II Society, and Dead Presidents, it does have a little in common with t... [More]

Riding in Cars With Boys

Riding in Cars With Boys

Those expecting Riding in Cars With Boys to be the light, cheery entertainment the trailer suggests, are going to be sorely disappointed. Although this picture does have it's funny moments, it is a surprisingly joyless movie. Based on the book, this film spans several years in the life of Beverl... [More]
