reviewed Zhou Yu's Train (2004). November 12, 2004
ZHOU YU'S TRAIN is the type of film that may -- just may -- require repeat viewing in order to take in all the thia story has to offer: if you blink -- much like the effect of the quickly passing scenery …
reviewed The Punisher (2004). November 07, 2004
It's hard to know what to make of THE PUNISHER, Marvel's counterpoint to DC Comics' THE BATMAN. Both characters are vigilantes; both characters have been turned into who they are due to the criminal deaths …
reviewed The Duel (2000). August 09, 2004
THE DUEL is the kind of film that gains a solid reputation by the talent involved (the ever-reliable Andy Lau, Ekin Cheng, Patrick Tam, Nick Cheung, etc.), despite the fact that the story -- a "duel to …
reviewed Temptress Moon (1997). August 02, 2004
Chen Kaige creates another period masterpiece with TEMPTRESS MOON, the story of a wealthy family struggling to maintain their history on the outskirts of Shanghai.    Due to her brother's …
reviewed To Live (1994). August 02, 2004
Director Zhang Yimou creates an incredibly vivid portrait of life -- its triumphs, its ironies, its tragedies -- in TO LIVE, arguably one of his best films to date.    TO LIVE weaves …
reviewed Hit Team (2000). June 20, 2004
You won't believe your ears as HIT TEAM (Dante Lam's CHUNG CHONG GING CHAAT from 2001) unleashes a virtual film budget full of lead in this relatively formulaic cop thriller that still manages to pull …
reviewed On Guard (1998). June 20, 2004
Alexandre Dumas made a reputation for himself writing stories chiefly about the uncommon man who had to rise to the occasion in extraordinary circumstances. Arguably, THE THREE MUSKETEERS and THE COUNT …
reviewed Joint Security Area (2002). June 13, 2004
One incredible tightly-woven story drives this political thriller of friends and enemies along the Joint Security Area (JSA) between North and South Korea.An apparent exchange of hostilities leaves two …
reviewed A Man Called Hero: Special Cut (1999). May 30, 2004
While I've been a longtime fan of the Woo-influenced Hong Kong action pics and I've been any even longertime (is there such a word?) fan samurai films, I've had a dubious love/hate affair with the more …
reviewed Wild Things (Unrated Edition) (1998). May 15, 2004
WILD THINGS is the epitome of the good looking contemporary thriller: all of the actors are in top form; the men are handsome; the ladies are ravenous; the story has more twists and turns than a Grisham …
reviewed The Tube (2004). May 15, 2004
Let's get something straight right from the get-go: TUBE isn't SHIRI ... nor does it try to be. While Woon-Hak Baek is the genius behind both of these films, he's created two entirely different vehicles …
reviewed The Sea (2003). May 07, 2004
Believe it or not, the kind folks at Sundance finally got it right in giving high marks to THE SEA!A great family drama told against the backdrop of the small town psyche, THE SEA tells the story of how …
reviewed Chappelle's Show - Season 1 Uncensore.... May 01, 2004
... this was the first DVD television series I purchased COMPLETELY on word-of-mouth and critical reviews. The response to THE DAVE CHAPPELLE SHOW was so incredible, so phenomenal that I knew I must be …
reviewed May (2002). April 23, 2004
Make what you will of this contemporary 'descent into madness' by the film's principle character of May (played with reserved conviction by Angela Bettis), but, once over, some of the movie's more gruesome …
reviewed Don't Tempt Me. April 05, 2004
In one clever twist of fate, two beautiful angels -- one from Heaven and one from Hell -- collide on the road of fate to save the soul for their respective kingdoms in the whimsical DON'T TEMPT ME.The …
reviewed Pieces of April (2003). March 01, 2004
Wow. How this incredibly satisfying little independent film didn't garner more attention during its brief theatrical release is an absolute mystery to me. I heard of it via the Golden Globe and Academy …
reviewed Chump Change (2000). March 01, 2004
I don't know that this film -- the story of Milwaukee Steve and his quest to have a billion dollar screenplay that'll light up Tinseltown like never before -- will ever amass a large following, but I …
reviewed The Hard Word (2003). February 15, 2004
What I found increasingly frustrating about THE HARD WORD is the fact that, as the story progressed, I wanted to like the film. I've always thought the Guy Pearce was an actor just waiting for the right …
reviewed Returner. February 14, 2004
RETURNER is like the little engine that could.Despite all best attempts to fly apart at its illogical seams, the film manages to muster a warm smile along thanks to some terrific special effects, some …
reviewed Underworld (Widescreen Special Editio.... February 08, 2004
UNDERWORLD is the kind of film that studios -- during the late 70s and 80s -- considered 'throwaways': horror films given a certain degree of mythology meant to attract little more than the teen audience …
reviewed Cure (2001). February 06, 2004
CURE is an entirely engrossing cop procedural drama coupled with more than just a healthy hint of THE X FILES that scores kudos for its relentlessly plotted creepiness tied to the intensity of the murders.Inspector …
reviewed Pyrokinesis (2003). January 04, 2004
PYROKINESIS -- despite a slow middle third -- plays out like a memorable episode of Fox Television's popular THE X FILES ... but with a unique afterlife twist.Born with the ability to telepathically ignite …
reviewed So Close (2003). January 03, 2004
I've seen enough Hong Kong actioners to know that they fall into two principal categories: (1) those that are terrific and ignore the possible logic problems of the story or (2) those that are terrific …
reviewed I, Madman (1989). January 02, 2004
I, MADMAN is, at best, a guilty pleasure ... with forced camp-ridden dialogue in a forced camp-ridden situation (a stunningly beautiful bookworm shucking her life away at some used book stores stumbles …
reviewed Running Out of Time (1999). December 30, 2003
There's something to said for this tightly-woven Hong Kong action thriller because RUNNING OUT OF TIME tries very hard to combine the traditional buddy picture with one pinch of "The Sting" and a hint …
