    Unfortunately, no awards committee is hip enough to praise this strange masterpiece.

    One of those rare sequels that's even better than the original.

    It's essentially a play-by-play of events that's so cheaply made it reeks of made-for-TV status.

    A dark comical masterpiece that single-handedly announces the collapse of the American family infrastructure as it exists on the brink of Y2K.

    It's full of energy and drops an emotional bomb with its unexpected tale of reluctant heroes.

    The what-you-don't-see element makes this an excellent film for people with overactive imaginations, and if that's you, it will scare the living crap out of you.

    Like a lot of anime, it's overlong and gets way too metaphysical at the end, but ultimately, this is a Princess worth worshipping.

    The talented Mr. Minghella is aping Alfred Hitchcock as effectively as Tom Ripley is doing Dickie Greenleaf.

    This is a warm, accessible story with delightful characters and a nice metaphor about following your own rules.

    Soderbergh, like Tarantino, has a knack for making every shady character onscreen fascinating.

    The Wachowski Brothers have created some of the most unrivaled and imaginative sci-fi in years.

    Manages to present rave youth's on-the-go attitude as well as "Swingers" exposed its hipster culture.

    It seems as if it was made by people who have never actually watched an episode of Star Trek. So all the old poke-fun-at-Trekkies cliches are here.

    It's a mind-blowing game, and all that nonsense about this being an erotic thriller was merely part of Kubrick's game.

    All that suspense falls dead at its climax, which proves to be a bore. The absence of a surprise ending and the lackluster spooks make this one worth skipping. I'm going back to see "The Sixth Sense."

    Moore and Fiennes both give impassioned, sexy performances.

    In between all this head-scratching nonsense, Sleepy Hollow can be fun, usually whenever the Headless Horseman shows up for swordplay that's better than anything in "The Phantom Menace."

    The definitive representation of young American men at the start of the 21st century.

    Frequently hilarious, often profound, and occasionally stupid.

    What makes this film so powerful is that its unanswered questions force the audience to examine hate and its consequences making American History X one lesson you can't miss.

    So moving, so memorable, so magically produced, it's going to delight millions of movie fans and sweep the Oscars.

    Sarandon and Portman have sizzling electricity that makes every funny, touching or sad moment between them seem even more fascinating than the last.

    James Bond hasn't been this boring since Timothy Dalton carried the license to kill.

    First rule of a film trilogy: Part 3 sucks. See "The Godfather 3,"" Alien 3,"" Jaws 3." Even "Return of the Jedi" was just a rehash of "Star Wars" with muppets. Add Scream 3 to that trend.

    Really a big fat zero. Hampton Fancher has done the unthinkable -- he's made a boring serial killer movie.
