Cats & Dogs (2001)

Nice performances but just a slow, dull movie and story

The first was a fun family adventure; the second worked off that had crapped out a tiresome film.

Scary Movie 2 (2001)

What a drastic negative change from the first
The opening scene with the old people rapping to Mystical was a good start; but was to be followed by mostly crap.

I found little reasoning behind Barry winning an Oscar for this role.

Rat Race (2001)

What a mild mild mild mild remake of the classic; can you guess what the classic's name was?

This French comedy about relationships is dialogue heavy and interesting enough half of the time.

Hannibal (2001)

The first was smart, creepy and horrifying; the second was gross and still creepy.

The drama is a little soapy but the actresses do give ernest performances at times.

Ghost World (2002)



Director: Terry Zwigoff
His 3rd Movie
My 4th movie watched from the director.


A rightfully odd look at two friends trying to tackle life immediately after graduation and trying to figure out who they are what they want to be. The main character's development is effectively shown in strange and lovely scenes. Actually released the year I graduated yet it took me 20 years to actually watch it.

Added to Lists:

The Child Actors of my Adolescence - Thora Birch, Scar Jo
Top Ten Performances - Scarlet Johansson
Steve Buscemi the best supporting actor of all time?

Why did they make a third one. Did they really think adding Pteradactyles (sp?) would bring people back after a disappointing second film. They did one thing right, no Julianne Moore.
Stehako's rating:

Amazing art, story left me wanting more. A lot more.

O (2001)

Owen Wilson actually pulls off the serious role but comedy is where he excels

Spy Kids (2001)
A decent kids action flick

Antitrust (2001)
This movie wants to be so much better than it is. It has all of the elements but execution is pedestrian. The most entertaining part about it is I am watching it in 2019 and it's about 'hot new' ideas from 2000/2001.
Stehako's rating:

The shipping news isn't great news; but we do get to experience a soft spoken Spacey selling it's easy to buy Blanchett being a bad bitch, too.

Probably my least favorite Cate Blanchett film; but she's got one heeeeeell of a record, so it's ok.
Stehako's rating:
Judy playing Judy. This has to be Davis' best role in what is a surprisingly decent biopic, with exceptional performances from Hugh Laurie (playing Minnelli) and Victor Garber, as well.

Down to Earth (2001)
Rock is funny but not real believable if he wants us to think he's a down to earth guy.

Stehako's rating:
People who added this item 3524 Average listal rating (2314 ratings) 5.7 IMDB Rating 5.8
An iconic role for Jolie. A lot of flash but little substance in this action flick

Joe Dirt (2001)

Pretty funny; but got old by the end. Kid Rock should not be in movies.
Stehako's rating:
People who added this item 273 Average listal rating (182 ratings) 6.3 IMDB Rating 6.5
Mean Machine (2001)
A British remake where they play football instead of American Football. Not as good as the original, better than the Sandler remake.
Stehako's rating:
People who added this item 484 Average listal rating (324 ratings) 5.9 IMDB Rating 6.3
Rock Star (2001)

Here's one actor who should not play a Mexican, or anyone for that matter. A pretty good movie with a pretty piss-poor actor (Mark Wahlberg) He, like Julianne Moore, ruins potentially great movies. Wait, they were both in 'Boogie Nights', how the hell did they not ruin that brilliant movie for me? Probably because it was one of the first films I had seen either one of them in.

Inconsistent animated styles kind of threw me off in this lesser-seen Disney movie that actually has a good story and the indelible voice of James Garner.

Sexy Beast (2001)
Sir Kingsley is a bad ass. I thought there would be a lot more sex in it, though... I made it all the way through, but my friends left after 20 minutes.
Stehako's rating:
People who added this item 533 Average listal rating (367 ratings) 5.5 IMDB Rating 6.3
Osmosis Jones (2001)



Director: Peter & Bobby Farrelly
Their 5th movie
My 10th movie watched from the directors


High anticipation lead to low amusement. Still good enough for three stars, which is not good enough for the Farrelly Brothers

Iris (2002)

Winslett and Dench, two British high-art actors; of course this will be good. Eh, they've done better.
