100. View from the Top (2003)
A corny, paint-by-number script with wooden acting. Not even Mike Myers could make this good.

99. Dark Blue (2002)
Russell gives a decent effort, too bad the screenwriters didn't

After this I need S.ome W.hiskey A.nd T.ea

97. Malibu's Most Wanted (2003)
A film no one needs to see; but one you'll hate to laugh at, because you probably will, at least once.

96. 2 Fast 2 Furious (2003)
2 bad 2 ridiculous.

95. The Weather Underground (2002)
I only got angry at the angries; but at least I learned some new things.
Stehako's rating:

People who added this item 1113  Average listal rating (719 ratings) 5.5  IMDB Rating 5.8 
94. Duplex (2003)
Mean-spirited and frustrating all the way to the end with very little pay-off
Stehako's rating:

People who added this item 2621  Average listal rating (1599 ratings) 5.4  IMDB Rating 6.1 
93. Freaky Friday (2003)
It's possibly the best version of the story, but that's not saying much. There is enough to this to make it watchable
Stehako's rating:

People who added this item 339  Average listal rating (213 ratings) 7.4  IMDB Rating 7.7 
92. The Barbarian Invasions (2003)
I did not see the appeal in this foreign flick. I tried to watch it a couple of times and could barely get through it. Kind of like "Cache"

91. Underworld (2003)
Kate looks so damn good in leather. Maybe I was distracted; but I couldn't get into the story at all. I'm also not a fan of the whole vampire genre.

Stehako's rating:

People who added this item 1448  Average listal rating (788 ratings) 6.7  IMDB Rating
90. Girl with a Pearl Earring (2003)
Yes, that weird looking woman on the poster is Scarlett Johansson, and no we don't see any more skin than that. The cinematography was the only thing that saved it
Stehako's rating:

People who added this item 78  Average listal rating (49 ratings) 6.1  IMDB Rating 6.6 
89. The Good Thief (2002)
Good grief, it took a lot of effort to really get into this droll story full of characters you never really care about. Still, there are some well-constructed scenes and the music helped.
Stehako's rating:

People who added this item 593  Average listal rating (366 ratings) 6.3  IMDB Rating 6.7 
88. Under the Tuscan Sun (2003)
I'm forever under the Diane Lane influence

87. Dreamcatcher (2003)
The first time I saw this, I actually really liked it, it played with your mind and surprised me a few times. The second time, I was amazed at this poor excuse for filmmaking.
Stehako's rating:

People who added this item 2562  Average listal rating (1606 ratings) 5.1  IMDB Rating 4.8 
86. Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle (2003)
Demi Moore looks damn good in a bikini, still.
Stehako's rating:

People who added this item 333  Average listal rating (183 ratings) 5.4  IMDB Rating 5.5 
85. Alex & Emma (2003)
Nothing bad about this romantic film; but... nothing really that good either.
Stehako's rating:

People who added this item 170  Average listal rating (113 ratings) 5.1  IMDB Rating 5.6 
84. Dickie Roberts: Former Child Star (2003)
One good thing about this movie - it actually was about as mediocre as it looked. The ending song was pretty great though.
Stehako's rating:

People who added this item 257  Average listal rating (164 ratings) 6.7  IMDB Rating 7.2 
83. Narc (2002)
As they say in 'Entourage' Jason Patric is intense. He is paired up with another intense actor, Ray Liotta. These guys aren't bad but the story seems stale and the color grading is pale, making this also a drab film to watch, but at least it fits with the story being told.
Stehako's rating:

People who added this item 256  Average listal rating (126 ratings) 6.5  IMDB Rating 6.2 
82. Gerry (2002)


Beautiful imagery and interesting experimenting with rhythms and compositions but wow, what a boring fucking movie.

81. Windy City Heat
A really funny concept but it gets a little too mean spirited.
Stehako's rating:

People who added this item 77  Average listal rating (33 ratings) 6.2  IMDB Rating 6.9 
80. Ghosts of the Abyss (2003)
On par with Cameron's "Aliens in the Deep" It was basically a show on Discovery, and an average one at that.
Stehako's rating:

People who added this item 521  Average listal rating (344 ratings) 6.9  IMDB Rating 7.2 
79. Bubba Ho-Tep (2002)
Like in "Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat" there is an Elvis/Pharaoh connection.
Stehako's rating:

People who added this item 2447  Average listal rating (1602 ratings) 5.1  IMDB Rating 5.7 
78. Hulk (2003)
I think it was okay. Not your typical comic book movie, and I think that's the main reason it didn't get a great reception. Ang Lee is a damn fine director, he just apparently shouldn't be making comic book movies.
Stehako's rating:

People who added this item 506  Average listal rating (270 ratings) 6.9  IMDB Rating 7.4 
77. Dirty Pretty Things (2002)
Toutou wasn't nearly as dirty or pretty as I had hoped in this.
Stehako's rating:

People who added this item 133  Average listal rating (86 ratings) 7.4  IMDB Rating
76. Winged Migration (The Travelling Birds) (2001)
Very cool visuals; but it really is basically a bunch of birds flying. I could watch that on National Geographic Channel.

Stehako's rating:

People who added this item 1256  Average listal rating (733 ratings) 6.5  IMDB Rating 6.7 
75. Brother Bear (2003)
Nice try, Disney, nice try. You should probably just rely on Pixar and your sports movies. Enough of these, please.
Stehako's rating:

74. National Security (2003)
Zahn and Lawrence probably won't be doing any more films together.

73. Secondhand Lions (2003)
I'm not really sure what this film was trying to be. The acting was good and story was good; that's as much as I can put down without going into a series of questions. And I don't think that was the director's intent.
Stehako's rating:

People who added this item 1077  Average listal rating (652 ratings) 6.4  IMDB Rating 6.9 
72. Peter Pan (2003)
The trailer made it look surreal and possibly... special? Boy did they fool us.
Still, not a bad film though.
Stehako's rating:

People who added this item 2654  Average listal rating (1774 ratings) 6.3  IMDB Rating 7.1 
71. Phone Booth (2002)
Dammit, Whitaker.

I think Willis needs to get Whitaker's agent, because clearly this guy can't act yet he gets gigs.

Ahhhh, refreshing... Jessica Biel. Nothing else was refreshing about this remake

Ok, now the confidence is getting out of hand.

Mindless fun action-kind-of-comedy.

67. Radio (2003)
This film was trying too hard and didn't have resounding success. However, I still watched the entire thing and enjoyed what it was about. Gooding Jr does a fine job; but the supporting cast could have been a little more supportive.
Stehako's rating:

People who added this item 57  Average listal rating (33 ratings) 6.1  IMDB Rating
66. Poolhall Junkies (2002)
The highlight of this movie, of course, is Walken. If I didn't find pool and billiards so interesting I probably wouldn't have cared much for this movie.
Stehako's rating:

65. The Triplets of Belleville (2003)
I'm not sure where the full entertainment I was expecting went...

64. Aileen: Life and Death of a Serial Killer (2003)
Is she guilty or not? Not sure?
Is she crazy, absolutely!

63. Bend It Like Beckham (2002)
I felt wrong watching this, Knightley is tantalizing, even as a jock.
Stehako's rating:

People who added this item 1299  Average listal rating (839 ratings) 6.7  IMDB Rating 7.3 
62. Matchstick Men (2003)
Rockwell and Lohman do a good job of making Cage not look bad.
Stehako's rating:

People who added this item 2347  Average listal rating (1441 ratings) 5.8  IMDB Rating 6.3 
61. How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days (2003)
I usually put one or two romantic comedies on here and this one certainly deserves a spot. Kate Hudson is adorable and and Matty McC is at least tolerable. Could have used a little more Goldberg though, that guy IS gold.
Stehako's rating:

People who added this item 476  Average listal rating (292 ratings) 6.3  IMDB Rating 6.8 
60. Swimming Pool (2003)
Not a whole lot happens in this film; but at least the title accurate.
Stehako's rating:

59. The Dancer Upstairs (2002)
John Malcovich actually directs this impressive first feature for an actor/now director. While he isn't starring in it, the very talented Bardem is, and he is the highlight of this strange detective/revolution story.
Stehako's rating:

People who added this item 861  Average listal rating (595 ratings) 5.7  IMDB Rating 6.1 
58. Wrong Turn (2003)
Two amazing beauties, Dushku and Chriqui, endure such disgusting horrific situations.

Stehako's rating:

57. Spellbound (2002)
Just a little more interesting than the actual National Spelling Bee.

56. Tears of the Sun (2003)
Cool title, not-as-cool film. Willis needs a new agent. Monica Bellucci is gorgeous but her some of her important assets are too constrained in this film
Stehako's rating:

People who added this item 100  Average listal rating (51 ratings) 6.2  IMDB Rating 6.2 
55. The Company (2003)
Quite a different film for Altman. It was nicely done though.
Stehako's rating:

People who added this item 318  Average listal rating (223 ratings) 6.1  IMDB Rating 6.5 
54. Out of Time (2003)
Denzel is the lead in a Spanish-Prisoner style action movie that would be half as good if he were not the star.
Stehako's rating:

People who added this item 2638  Average listal rating (1744 ratings) 5.7  IMDB Rating 6.4 
53. Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines (2003)
Easily the least-likable of the trilogy. It's hard to top T2. The new baddie was cool and hot in that outfit. The kids brought it down a little and some of action seemed a little cheap.
Stehako's rating:

People who added this item 1755  Average listal rating (1017 ratings) 6.2  IMDB Rating 6.9 
52. Thirteen (2003)


Oh to be thirteen, what a responsible age...
Stehako's rating:

People who added this item 306  Average listal rating (202 ratings) 7.3  IMDB Rating 7.8 
51. In America (2002)
Hell's Kitchen never looked so good, I mean bad. I don't know, but this film of an Irish immigrant family tugs at the heart and soul with such ease. Hounsou is someone to look for, too.
