IN THEATERS! Stiller is able to shine a little more as the guy everyone loves to hate – the more he acts like a jerk, the more we all want to see him get nailed upside the head with a Dodgeball as soon as possible…

THE NOTEBOOK

3.5 Stars

IN THEATERS! “The Notebook” is a surprisingly good film that manages to succeed where many other “chick flick” like romances fail…

GARFIELD: THE MOVIE

3.5 Stars

IN THEATERS! Garfield’s first movie might not be as amusing as the cartoon but it was still a lot of fun to watch…

2.5 Stars
Year Released: 2004
MPAA Rating: PG

While there were a lot of corny, laugh out loud scenes, overall it wasn’t a horrible movie…

KILL BILL VOL. 2

5 Stars
Year Released: 2004

What Volume 2 lacked in carnage and mayhem, it made up for with enough character and development for both volumes…

THE WHOLE TEN YARDS

2.5 Stars
Year Released: 2004
MPAA Rating: PG-13
Running Time: 99 minutes

It’s a shame that the writers couldn’t come up with something better than this, especially since many of the jokes were flat and basically recycled from the first film…

DAWN OF THE DEAD

2.5 Stars
Year Released: 2004
MPAA Rating: R

If you actually take a very close look at this film, the average moviegoer might have missed a few other scenes that borrow a page from the books of many other great horror films…

ETERNAL SUNSHINE OF THE SPOTLESS MIND

5 Stars
Year Released: 2004
MPAA Rating: R
Running Time: 108 minutes

From the same accomplished bloke that gave us creative gems like ‘Being John Malkovich’ and ‘Adaptation’ comes another deep, thought provoking script that proves beyond a shadow of a doubt that Charlie Kaufman is one of today’s most gifted screenwriters…

IN THEATERS! I haven’t seen a film this poorly made since last year’s mother of all bombs… “Charlie’s Angels 2”…

LOST IN TRANSLATION

4 Stars
Year Released: 2003

OSCAR WINNER? If you walk into this movie expecting to see a gut splitting comedy, or Bill Murray being his usual over the top self, chances are you will walk out of this film very disappointed…

ALONG CAME POLLY

1.5 Stars
Year Released: 2004
MPAA Rating: PG-13
Running Time: 90 minutes

IN THEATERS! It’s not funny, and there’s no way any kind of bathroom humor can make up for it… no matter how hard they tried…

BIG FISH

4 Stars
Year Released: 2003
MPAA Rating: PG-13
Running Time: 125 minutes

The Alabama accents got more annoying as the film went on. The film might have benefited from moving the setting to another state, where this could have been avoided all together…

THE STATEMENT

3 Stars
Year Released: 2003
MPAA Rating: R
Running Time: 100 minutes

There are a lot of issues that are only hinted at but never followed through on, and while I’m sure this is how things work in real life… it would be nice if we actually got a few loose ends tied up rather than having a lot of things left unresolved…
