What I Like About You

Perhaps What I Like About You will be a little cultural barometer, mirroring X and Y tastes and giving both generations one more home in primetime.


John Doe

In John Doe, suspense takes a backseat to certainty.


Hidden Hills

Even more problematic is the moment when it's time for the episode's moral message, delivered with the subtlety of a bumper sticker.


American Dreams

American Dreams recognizes an important point: rock and roll was deeply dependent on television in its early days. And that hasn't really changed.

Steve Earle: Jerusalem

Steve Earle has always been a guy who is never afraid to shoot his mouth off, and with 'Jerusalem', his timing is perfect, as his own razor-sharp words slice through the shallow slop of almost all 9-11-inspired music that has come out to date.

Vanya on 42nd Street (1994)

Elastic yet precise, Malle's film has the vitality and vividness of a Renoir -- it breathes.


Son of the Bride (Hijo de la Novia) (2001)

It affirms the institution of marriage -- and of a loving marriage.


The Scorpion King (2002)

The Rock, director Russell says, has a 'deep commitment' to acting, bringing as much passion to the role as he does to his athletic endeavors -- good to know.


Spirited Away (2001/2002)

America is better off with Miyazaki playing in the malls and the multiplexes than Monsters, Inc.


Red Dragon (2002)

What is most politically problematic about Red Dragon is how it furthers the relationship between physical disability and psychopathology.


Moonlight Mile (2002)

Fits a little too neatly with the recent popularity of media considering grief and death rituals.


KISS Exposed (1987)

When you work all day / You gotta Uh! All Night / Uh! -- Uh! -- Uh! -- Uh! -- Uh! -- Whooo!.
