The Life of David Gale 2003,  R)
The Life of David Gale
two of my favorite actors - and a great plot twist
6
The Recruit 2003,  PG-13)
The Recruit
The plot was tight and the action was taut. Al Pacino and Colin Farrell actually turn in strong acting performances as well. The twist was expected, but still effective nonetheless.
7
Dogville 2003,  R)
Dogville
could be the strangest movie you'll ever see - it's set like a staged play
8
Something's Gotta Give 2003,  PG-13)

Anger Management 2003,  PG-13)

Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World 2003,  PG-13)

15
Radio 2003,  PG)
16
School of Rock 2003,  PG-13)
17
Shade 2003,  R)
Shade
For pure poker, watch Rounders. For pure gangster, watch Goodfellas. But if you want to see a good mixing of the two, this is it.
18
Bruce Almighty 2003,  PG-13)
19
Love Object 2003,  R)
Love Object
a disturbing descent from the realm of reality
20
Calendar Girls 2003,  PG-13)
21
Elf 2003,  PG)
22
The Shape Of Things 2002,  R)
The Shape Of Things
While I suspected something would happen at the end to completely spin things around, I did not expect what actually did happen; turned a better-than-average movie into a good movie.
23
Finding Nemo 2003,  G)
24
Swimming Pool 2003,  R)
25
Old School 2003,  R)
Old School
Not quite the classic I once thought, but still funny.
26
American Wedding 2003,  R)
27
Under the Tuscan Sun 2003,  PG-13)
28
Identity 2003,  R)
Identity
I think if I saw this again I might like it even better. I spent too much time focusing on the absurdity of the situation and only at the end did I truly comprehend what really did happen. Tight directing.
29
Just Married 2003,  PG-13)
Just Married
Awww...I thought this was cute, and quite funny at times. I miss you, Brittany.
30
The Station Agent 2003,  R)
The Station Agent
A quirky, charming, character-driven piece.
31
The Roman Spring of Mrs. Stone 2003,  R)
32
Japanese Story 2003,  R)
33
Carmen 2003,  Unrated)
Carmen
Well-done presentation of the classic story. Costuming, writing, and performing were excellent. And Paz Vega was stunning as always.
34
Monsieur N. 2004,  Unrated)
Monsieur N.
Very well-done historical tale surrounding the potential mystery regarding Napoleon's death. Though it turned a bit too "whodunit" in the middle, the ending brought the movie back to what it did best - atmosphere - with it's beautiful music and directing.
35
The Missing 2003,  R)
36
Monster 2004,  R)
Monster
Great performance for which Charlize won an Oscar.
37
The Human Stain 2003,  R)
The Human Stain
we're supposed to believe Anthony Hopkins has black blood? - please; ruins an otherwise good movie
38
My Boss's Daughter 2003,  PG-13)
39
Octane (Pulse) 2004,  R)
Octane (Pulse)
What an underrated little gem. Great acting, score, suspense, and one of the best directing jobs I have seen in a long time.
40
Underworld 2003,  R)
Underworld
Not as good as I remembered - but still enjoyable.
41
The Italian Job 2003,  PG-13)
42
Open Water 2004,  R)
Open Water
A very well-directed and shot indie film. This is real subtle/steady horror. Blair Witch can eat it.
43
Sylvia 2003,  R)
44
Stuck On You 2003,  PG-13)
Stuck On You
For the first half or so I thought this was just hokey, but then it grew on me and stuck. Eva Mendes is hot as hell here.
45
The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen 2003,  PG-13)
46
Big Fish 2003,  PG-13)
Big Fish
I expected much more from this movie
47
X2: X-Men United 2003,  PG-13)
48
The Order (The Sin Eater) 2003,  R)
The Order (The Sin Eater)
It seems my initial impression of this movie being crap is shared by many on this site. However, upon reviewing, I found it to be much better than I remembered. The story was interesting, but it just wasn't properly delivered. Perhaps Mr. Helgeland should stick to adapting novels (which he does very well) rather thanwriting/directing on his own.
49
The Boys and Girl From County Clare 2004,  R)
The Boys and Girl From County Clare
Nothing too special, but sort of cute and entertaining.
50
La Petite Lili 2004,  R)
La Petite Lili
Unlike one review I read, I thought the film started out quite slowly and got more interesting as it went along. The characters were covered with some depth, but overall I didn't find quite enough to make watching too worthwhile.
51
Perfect Strangers 2003,  PG-13)
Perfect Strangers
This was a strange one. A bit of Atame meets Repulsion. Rachael Blake reminds me of Julie Christie.
52
Cheaper by the Dozen 2003,  PG)
53
A Man Apart 2003,  R)
54
Wrong Turn 2003,  R)
Wrong Turn
All right as far as horrors go. Funny how the movie got better as less and less of the twenty-somethings were on-screen.
55
Lost In Translation 2003,  R)
Lost In Translation
Watching two boring people be boring together...gripping. The fact that anyone was nominated for any award for this movie, let alone winning, is a crime.
56
The Matrix Reloaded 2003,  R)
57
Bulletproof Monk 2003,  PG-13)
58
Bad Boys II 2003,  R)
Bad Boys II
If all we had were the action sequences this wouldn't be too bad. Amazingly enough, Bay does a great job of directing when he doesn't rely so heavily on crappy CGI. There are two or three really funny scenes as well. But overall Smith and Lawrence are just too annoying to have to deal with together.
59
The Lizzie McGuire Movie 2003,  PG)
60
Te doy mis ojos (Take My Eyes) 2006,  Unrated)
Te doy mis ojos (Take My Eyes)
A decent movie about spousal abuse, but it's just not my cup of tea.
61
King Of The Ants 2003,  R)
King Of The Ants
What started out as a promising movie just turned lame. If it wasn't for the fact this replaced Irreversible as having the most disturbing 20 minutes of footage I've seen in a movie it really wouldn't be noteworthy
62
Qui a tué Bambi? (Who Killed Bambi?) 2004,  Unrated)
Qui a tué Bambi? (Who Killed Bambi?)
It starts out somewhat interesting, and remains so from a psychological standpoint, but degenerates into a nonsensical mess plot-wise.
63
Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl 2003,  PG-13)
64
Lara Croft Tomb Raider - The Cradle of Life 2003,  PG-13)
65
Kill Bill: Volume 1 2003,  R)
66
Girls Will Be Girls 2003,  R)
Girls Will Be Girls
This was ok; definitely quirky; some decent one-liners and wit. I'm surprised it doesn't have more of a cult following.
67
House of 1000 Corpses 2003,  R)
House of 1000 Corpses
I expected a lot more than I got; rather silly.
68
Alex & Emma 2003,  PG-13)
Alex & Emma
Moderately cute, but mostly hokey - and the characters were rather flakey.
69
Down with Love 2003,  PG-13)
Down with Love
A bit too silly and campy for my tastes.
70
Kontroll 2005,  R)
Kontroll
Some good music and symbolism, but I just didn't really get that into it.
71
Devil's Pond 2003,  R)
Devil's Pond
This started out harmless enough but degenerated into two dysfunctional people beating each other up. Don't the writers/director know that the unknown/unseen is scary? Some of the "suspense" scenes were just laughable.
72
Imagining Argentina 2004,  R)
Imagining Argentina
Despite a good cast and a serious subject matter, this movie was pretty silly.
73
The Lion in Winter 2003,  Unrated)
The Lion in Winter
Horribly long and boring.
74
Mummy's Kiss 2003,  R)
75
Dallas 362 2005,  R)
Dallas 362
Didn't like it; utterly pretentious. Goldblum was the only good thing, but he's always good. Val Lauren and his awful Ratso Rizzo impersonation was the nadir.
76
Shredder 2003,  R)
77
Le Divorce 2003,  PG-13)
78
Hollywood Homicide 2003,  PG-13)
Hollywood Homicide
Stupid. This movie is all across the board and ends up going nowhere.
79
Highwaymen 2004,  R)
Highwaymen
This was pretty silly.
80
National Lampoon's Gold Diggers 2004,  PG-13)
81
Charlie's Angels - Full Throttle 2003,  PG-13)
Charlie's Angels - Full Throttle
Having suffered through this at the theater, I knew this was one of the worst movies I had ever seen, Now I can safely say it is THE worst.
82
Womb Raider 2003,  R)
83
Bad Bizness 2004,  R)
