Film Reviews (2002)

Orange County
Review Date: January 3, 2002
Rating: 1
A wretched miscalculation despite the inspired Jack Black. Come for a visit.
Attack Of The Clones Trailer
Review Date: January 13 , 2002
Sadly Lucas won’t stick to doing trailers only. If only.
Black Hawk Down
Review Date: January 15, 2002
Technically stunning film verging on dangerous propaganda. Take a ride.
Super Troopers
Review Date: February 1, 2002
Doomed for life on Comedy Central’s midnight movie schedule. Police brutality.
Blade 2
Review Date: February 16 , 2002
The Decline of Western Civilization with fangs. Clever and crunchy. Bite down.
Human Nature
Review Date: February 18 , 2002
Rating: 5
Least alluring of Kaufman’s screenplays but still undeniably a one-of-a-kind film. Visit while you can.
Changing Lanes

Rating: 7
A gripping drama joined with an unflinching study of morality. Cross over!

Creepy realism makes for a small treasure of a film. The angel said do it.
Death To Smoochy
Review Date: May 2 , 2002
You would have to drug me and prop my eyes open with toothpicks for me to watch this garbage again. Not dead enough.
Hollywood Ending
Review Date: May 3, 2002
Rating: 4
Quick in places but depressingly flawed; Allen is always worth a look. Go West, old man.
About A Boy
Review Date: May 17, 2002
Rating: 0
Soulless, offensive, and full of bad haircuts. See for yourself
Star Wars II: Attack of The Clones
Review Date: May 18, 2002
Short on risks, the movie’s too-familiar feel is a source of both great pleasure and deep consternation. Jump to hyperspace.
Review Date: May 24 , 2002

Odd curio: a good film sleepwalking. You won't catch any Zs

Panic Room
Review Date: June 2, 2002
Consistently inventive thriller that needed more realism to strike home. Enter at your own risk.
Road To Perdition
Review Date: July 6, 2002
Beautiful looking. One of the best of the gangster genre. Read more
Confessions Of A Dangerous Mind
Review Date: December 22, 2002
