Clockstoppers (2002)

For a movie about messing with time, it is quite linear and conservative.


Journeys With George (2002)

Bush is many things to many people: a tyrant, a savior, a great guy, a shyster, a man of the people, and a moneyed elitist.

Sorority Boys (2002)

If there is a movie that might make me agree with conservative pundits assailing the 'vulgarity' and gross-out humor of contemporary U.S. culture and much recent Hollywood teen fare, 'Sorority Boys' would be it.


Blade II (2002)

The Daywalker has his own agenda, still fever-dreaming and raging, but changed too.

Showtime (2002)

The trouble with 'Showtime' is that it never lets up on its self-congratulatory wink-winking.


Resident Evil (2002)

Alice's amnesia is Resident Evil's best trick.


Harrison’s Flowers (2002)

Goes at both war and romance from a decidedly oblique angle.

The Time Machine (2002)

[In 'The Time Machine',] Alexander decides to go look for an answer, but going into the future (why, we'll never know).


All About the Benjamins (2002)

'All About the Benjamins'... relies heavily on the considerable chemistry between Epps and Cube: sometimes it's just fun to watch them entertain one another, which they clearly do.

We Were Soldiers (2002)

'We Were Soldiers' is, above all, an earnest film, working overtime not to be a standard U.S. war movie where the good (white) boys fight against diabolical 'others'.


Trouble Every Day (2001)

PULL.


40 Days and 40 Nights (2002)

'40 Days and 40 Nights' is a love story, yes, about a boy and his penis.

Queen of the Damned (2002)

Queen of the Damned (2002)

In 'Queen of the Damned', there's something more than a little obvious about the vampire Lestat as goth rock superstar.


Dragonfly (2002)

Belief is a big deal in 'Dragonfly', the latest entry in 2002's February Film Dump Sweepstakes.


Thursday, February 14 2002

Super Troopers (2002)

PULL.


Return to Never Land (2002)

Peter Pan is queer. We're all clear on that, right?"


John Q (2002)

After 'Collateral Damage', you might imagine that most every aggrieved father cliché has been unturned. But no. Here comes 'John Q'.


Hart’s War (2002)

Predictably, Hart's war ends up being his education, his route to noble manhood.


Crossroads (2002)

Unlike the audiences at most movie previews, these folks at 'Crossroads' were amped.
