Latest Review Additions:
Hero (in Film )
Empty of saturation of fists of fury, Hero is bound for glory with its beauty and wonder in colorful scenery, brilliant film effects and spectacular imagery, yet still seemingly simple and plain.
Alien Vs. Predator (in Film )
Believe it or not, "Alien Vs. Predator" is not as bad as you would like to think. As the first African American female to lead to a sci-fi genre film, Sanaa Lathan is very courageous and prominent in this battle of the species.
The Manchurian Candidate (in Film )
On the surface there are a lot of things that work. It's well acted and the story is relatable to current events. The problem is that the film is poorly paced and ridiculously contrived.
She Hate Me (in Film )
While there are many issues within the film, Lee never connects the dots to make them coherent. They seem contrived and unbalanced, and when it ends, you may have to roll the dice again to figure this film out.
The Bourne Supremacy (in Film )
It's a fast action thriller that can live on its own without having to see the first one. With less dialogue and more physical skills needed, Matt Damon has elevated the spy genre to new heights as he move into a category that only James Bond currently resides in.

The Village (in Film )
M. Night Shyamalan's latest thriller is a tepid effort when compared to his previous films. Turn down your expectations, because The Village is more of a drama than anything else
Garden State (in Film )
It's a pretty solid effort for a first film. Braff delivers a quirky comedy that tries a little too hard to be dramatic. The ensemble cast is first rate and saves the film from being too obscure.
Catwoman (in Film )
Of all of the comic books that were made into feature films, "Catwoman" stands out as one of the worst of them.Berry may look good enough to fit the costume, but she doesnít possess the feline bones that made Julie Newmar and Eartha Kitt stand out.
I, Robot (in Film )
I, Robot is more of a popcorn film than hardcore science fiction. The result is a slick action film with a decent story. I, Robot could have probably been better, but is enjoyable enough to warrant another viewing.
The Door in the Floor (in Film )
The Door in the Floor is a deep, personal character drama laced with sex and nudity. It's not exactly titillating, but definitely worth seeing.
Anchorman (in Film )
The problem with Anchorman is that it's totally brainless. It has a wire thin plot that loosely holds together the film's zany gags.
Spider-Man 2 (in Film )
If there was ever a sequel that captured the hearts and imaginations of its fans as well as lived up to its massive expectations, it's Spider-Man 2. It ranks right up there with Superman 2 and X-Men 2 as one of the best sequels to a comic book franchise.

The Clearing (in Film )
Besides the fact the film is well acted, there's not enough compelling moments for it to be suspenseful or satisfying.
