Trixie (2000)

This Is Spinal Tap (1984/2000)

Sixteen years ago, a young filmmaker named Marti DiBergi set out to capture, in his words, 'the sights, the sounds, and the smells' of a workhorse British rock band named Spinal Tap.


Toy Story 2 (1999)

Near the end of the film The Matrix, Neo (Keanu Reeves) begins to understand his own power. When he realizes that everything he is seeing is a computer program, the payoff shot for this knowledge shows the screen filled with the 1s and 0s which make up the objects and people previously seen. The shot is stunning, and lays bare not only the program within the film's narrative universe, but also the computer work necessary to create the effects in The Matrix.


Scream 3 (2000)

The Scream series has always been about movies. But unlike most movies, the Scream movies have always been smarter than commentaries about it, and in particular, smarter than the commentaries about its commentaries on movies.


Surf School (2006)

It's as though Silverman asked a group of 13-year-olds to describe a 'hippie' and then created the aging flower children based on their answers.


Space Cowboys (2000)

M50o93H7pQ09L8X1t49cHY01Z5j4TT91fGfr


The 6th Day (2000)

M60o93H7pQ09L8X1t49cHY01Z5j4TT91fGfr


The Score (2001)

...it's boy-movie-making 101, a very traditional plot point indeed.


Scary Movie (2000)

M80o93H7pQ09L8X1t49cHY01Z5j4TT91fGfr


Sunshine (1999)

M90o93H7pQ09L8X1t49cHY01Z5j4TT91fGfr


Star Trek: The Motion Picture (1979/2001)

Ambitious, strange, and grand. Nice to have you back, Captain (or rather, Admiral) Kirk.


The Stunt Man (1980/2001)

No matter how many times one watches ['The Stunt Man', it maintains] a kind of kamikaze bravado.


Series 7: The Contenders (2001)

M120o93H7pQ09L8X1t49cHY01Z5j4TT91fGfr


Swordfish (2001)

What is most distressing about 'Swordfish' is John Travolta. More and more, Travolta is becoming a caricature of himself as action anti/hero.


Supernova (2000)

M140o93H7pQ09L8X1t49cHY01Z5j4TT91fGfr


Stuart Little (1999)

Save the Last Dance (2001)

M160o93H7pQ09L8X1t49cHY01Z5j4TT91fGfr


Shanghai Noon (2000)

M170o93H7pQ09L8X1t49cHY01Z5j4TT91fGfr


Shaft (2000)

M180o93H7pQ09L8X1t49cHY01Z5j4TT91fGfr


Songcatcher (2001)

PULL.
