Far from good. The colors in this remake were interesting, but it's tough to take Julianne Moore seriously. I didn't care about any of the relationships. I'm not sure how this is a lauded film.

Resident Evil (2002)
Cool idea and decent adaptation from the game, but executed poorly in writing and direction.

If you've seen Manhunter, then you probably don't like this film.

Showtime (2002)
What the hell went wrong here?
Stehako's rating:
Actually probably more entertaining than the original Martin and Lewis. Wasn't a big fan.

The Good Girl (2002)
Aniston is such a likable and beautiful actress, she can't go wrong. This one needed a little work overall, though.

Barbershop (2002)
Cube does his best to make a respectable movie here. It's a bit amateur but the characters make it worthy.
Stehako's rating:
A messy and low-grade but Heartbreaking story that serves as an interesting microcosm of how mixed kids were taken care of after the Vietnam War.

Mr. Deeds (2002)
Half stupid childish humor and half real comedy, and zero amounts of talent coming from Winona Ryder

Do another Bond like this and the series will die. Entertaining; but one of the weakest I've seen.
Everyone one in the cast seemed tired and the production is "neat-looking" but lazy.

Elizabeth Hurley keeps any interest easily lost in this film that seems to have little point. However, Bigelow does direct this well, and some scenes are interesting with tension.

A more fun, zany, fast-pace, sporty version of 'Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon'

I Spy (2002)
Two funny actors with a less-than-hilarious script. A lot of potential but with only a few solid moments to take home with you.

Comedian (2002)
It's good to see this neurotic genius behind the scenes. He still gets nervous about going on stage after all he's done. I liked the smaller acts; but felt they spent too much time on some.

Fisher is so into himself he wrote a movie that is simply his name.

Harrison Ford with a Russian accent... I've seen better

About as good as I had hoped. Fun characters and a nice story. I thought there would be more rain though.

This Culkin is talented and I'd like to see more of him. A quirky movie all the way through.

Windtalkers (2002)
Great visuals and interesting untold story of WWII, but the acting is too far from believable and the movie draaags.

Depressing, haunting and... kind of cool

xXx (2002)
The perfect movie for Vin Diesel, and actually watchable. It's James Bond for the lower class.

Ice Age (2002)
A Pixar wannabee that is rarely funny. In fact the only thing that mad me laugh out loud was Scrat appearing randomly and for a split second during a falling scene.

CQ (2002)


A stylish ode to seventies sci-fi and low-budget filmmaking.

John Q (2002)
Frustrating but kept my interest all the way through. It reminded me of a more tame 'Falling Down'

The Hours (2003)
Will Julianne Moore please stop acting. Everyone else: Bravo. Well, Kidman was good, but half of the credit should be given to make-up. Just because she looks different doesn't mean her performance was great.
And what was with the music, why did it so much praise? I found it distracting and manipulative on top emotional inept.
Otherwise, well-made film.
Okay, well-made, but not sure how it was nominated for a Best Picture Oscar. This has to be one of the weakest nominations yet.

Spirited Away (2001)
I've never been into Anime but Miyazaki can at least make a watchable film and this is perhaps his best. I'm not sure how this has 8+ ratings, but I did enjoy it and loved the visuals and strange world with strange creatures.

Panic Room (2002)
Fincher's weakest film yet; but still good. Can you people stop hiring Whitaker, please? He's terrible! This is also Jared Leto's worst role; but, sadly for her, Kristen Stewart's best role.

Naqoyqatsi (2003)
The third and final film in Godfrey Reggio's trio of cinematic concerts.

Irreversible (2002)


I love the filmmaking in this and I'm awed with the way the story is told and the characters are developed.
BUT
I hate the excess violence and disgusting sex (not the beautiful ending sex scene - pictured -), especially the ridiculously long and horrible rape scene.
