    Toy Story had a simpler, stronger story and the advantage of being the first of its kind. But it's quickly apparent that TS2 represents a major step forward in computer-animation artistry.

    The most effective moments in Taymor's gorgeous, surprisingly romantic Frida are those that evoke the visual world from which Kahlo's work was formed or the paintings themselves, often using clever animation and other special effects.

    May be the creepiest and most original horror film since John Carpenter's classic "Halloween."

    Vulgar and lewd and raunchy like you wouldn't believe, and absolutely hilarious from beginning to end.

    An exhilarating, sweeping epic that begs to be seen on the largest possible screen.

    Atriumph on almost every level. It is breathtakingly stylish, wonderfully acted and its three interrelated tales of the "war" on drugs are brilliantly structured to form a cohesive, powerful whole.

    Isn't just scary, charming and delightfully unpredictable - it's also smarter and subtler than any new movie out there.

    • 88 Jonathan Foreman
    A powerful fable about love and addiction that manages to be darkly humorous when it isn't graphic or harrowing in the extreme.

    Gripping, smart and moving, without falling prey to sentimentality, it shows what can be achieved when mainstream filmmakers like Howard and Goldsman are genuinely inspired and determined to be honest.

    A visually stunning film.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 88 Jonathan Foreman
    An affectionate, often clever and unflaggingly funny satire.

    The final result, shaped by the brilliantly nimble, pitch-perfect direction of Spike Jonze, and blessed by superb acting, is an extraordinarily clever comedy that falters only in the last 20 minutes.

    A stunning achievement, every bit the equal of the classic moun taineering book which inspired it.

    • 88 Jonathan Foreman
    Magnificent if overlong and oddly structured surfing documentary.
    • 74 Metascore

    East Is East is "The Full Monty" of 2000, a fresh, funny and poignant film filled with sparkling performances.

    You can tell this is a smart take on Hamlet from the first wordless opening shots.

    At first, it seems stagy and slow and even to verge on the pretentious, but the film steadily accumulates dramatic power as its carefully sketched characters reveal their internal lives. By its end, After Life has developed into one of those haunting movies whose scenes can pop back into your consciousness hours or days after you have seen it. [12 May 1999, p.56]

    Comes closer to what a Bond movie should be and once was.

    A unique, priceless portrait of the now legendary leader, and of his beautiful country when it was in the grip of a disastrous civil war.

    Generally delightful, and reminiscent of two vanished ages: when men were men, and when movies were movies.

    Shaft is what summer action flicks should be... thanks to superior writing, acting and direction.

    Far more interesting and intelligent than anything coming out of the studios. It fairly brims with superb performances by a terrific cast - you simply can't take your eyes off the female leads, Edie Falco and Angela Bassett.

    The film is almost worth seeing just for the extraordinary scene in which a stark naked Mortimer has her movie star lover (Dermot Mulroney) deliver an exhaustive critique of her body's flaws.

    The most enjoyable western comedy since "Blazing Saddles."
    • 66 Metascore
    • 75 Jonathan Foreman
    Warm and charming and often witty, it's as good a romantic comedy as has come out for some time, with an endearing, perfectly pitched central performance that's a four-square triumph for Zellweger.

    A deeply pleasurable, old-fashioned blood-'n'-guts adventure film.

    Fascinating, beautifully photographed portrait of a vanished community.

    Beautifully shot and often moving.

    • 79 Metascore
    • 75 Jonathan Foreman
    A charming, (mostly) briskly unsentimental love story, written, directed and acted with remarkable assurance.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 75 Jonathan Foreman
    Bowfinger's terrific set-pieces... more than make up for the odd weak moment or thin performance.
