Week of January 12th thru January 16th, 2004



If there's any film this year, as early as it is, that can knock the reigning box office champs, The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King, from its position, it has to be TORQUE. From the producers of S.W.A.T , 2 Fast 2 Furious, and Out of Time, TORQUE stars Ice Cube, Faison Love, Christina Milian, Jay Hernandez, Freddo Star, and Martin Henderson.

Latest Review Additions:
My Baby's Daddy (in Film)
My Baby's Daddy is a very disappointing film. It had some genuinely funny moments, but is really not that funny or entertaining as a whole. 
The film is a haunting, thought-provoking, dramatic film. It not only features the challenging issues of right and wrong, but the acting is top notch, especially the work given by Ben Kingsley.
Cold Mountain is a good film, not a great film.  It's not the Oscar behemoth that they're hoping it will be, but I think audiences will generally be satisfied.
PAYCHECK (in Film)
John Woo is back in top form with his futuristic sci-fi thriller Paycheck.
Girl with a Pearl Earring (in Film)
Girl with a Pearl Earring is a masterpiece of production and subtlety.
The Last Samurai (in Film)
It's gripping, emotional, and laced with a splendid production design. Definitely one of the year's best films!
The Lord Of The Rings: The Return Of The King (in Film)
They did save the best for last. Return of the King does an excellent job of delivering the journey part of the story, probably more than any film ever made.
