Paul’s Oscar Predictions 2003

| February 1, 2004

The List If any year can be viewed as being predictable in terms of Oscars, this is it. Of course I can be wrong, but it has never been a less competitive year than the 2003 season that was Hollywood. So here goes. Best Picture: The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King […]

Mike’s Film List 2003

| February 1, 2004

The year’s best movies came from some unconventional places in 2003. No musicals (unless you count the crap that is From Justin to Kelly or the hypnotic fantasia that is The Triplets of Belleville), no stories about lovable mongoloids (unless you count Ashton Kutcher), and no Miramax–at least not on my list. Instead, the past […]

Joe’s Best and Worst Films of 2003 And The World They Reflected

2003. I’m warning you now, I’m a grumpy reviewer this year. Maybe I’m starting to lose hope that the new century is going to bring a better world. Maybe it’s because Britney Spears promised us at least a year’s break, but it sure as hell didn’t seem like it; I can’t remember a single month […]

Here’s my list, but first a rant: This year Sharyn (beloved wife who puts up with my going to all of these flicks) and I rang up a near record amount of hours spent in the dark at the multi-plex. We saw 68 movies. This brings me to a couple of points: Attention: The following […]

There were a lot of big movies that came out in 2003. It was the year of the action sequel for sure. 2003 did however seem to be an overall better year for American cinema than in recent years past. Year End reviews are the most difficult reviews to write. Trying to summarize a years […]

Del’s Best and Worst of 2003

| February 1, 2004

What a year. Some of the worst films I’ve ever seen, and most of them had impossibly huge budgets. And to punctuate that premise just look at a bunch of Oscar nominations. I love some of these people, but they did NOT turn in Oscar worthy performances, at least not in the films they have […]

I like a bad movie for precisely the same reason that I like bad porn — it gets the job done. Actually, they really are just like bad porn, because it’s not so much that I like them as it is that I just don’t care. I’m just like the average American moviegoer who goes […]
