November 2004
Week of November 29th through December 3rd
Get Ready for Mr. December
The Many Faces of Don Cheadle
If there's any actor that can rival Jude Law with the number of films on screen at the same time, it would have to be Don Cheadle. In addition to "After The Sunset", which is currently in theaters, the month of December will have Mr. Cheadle in some big and small films. In "Ocean's Twelve" (Dec.10) and "The Assassination of Richard Nixon" (Dec.29), he's a supporting player, but with "Hotel Rwanda" (Dec.25), Don gives the best performance of his career; one that is generating Oscar buzz for Best Actor.

Latest Review Additions:
Closer (in Film )
"Closer" is a raw, stimulating film filled with excellent performances and an exotic script!
The House of Flying Daggers (in Film )
Flying Daggers is an enormously entertaining film.  It moves at a quick pace and throttles you with slickly choreographed fights.

After the Sunset (in Film )
What you get with this film is an unoriginal concept using the backdrop of a resort to lure us to see a heist film where our time is only thing that was stolen. Together, Salma and Pierce present a good chemistry, but separately Pierce has no funny bones when trying to make a comedic scene with Woody Harrelson work.

A Very Long Engagement (in Film )
The film is a sweeping cinematic odyssey of young lovers separated by the savagery of war. It is a stunning achievement, brilliantly shot, designed, and executed on a grand scale.

Alexander (in Film )
Stone made an epic that rivals the best in Hollywood history and a damned entertaining movie that is sure to sweep multiplex audiences along in its beguiling thrall.

Finding Neverland (in Film )
"Finding Neverland" is full of wit, emotion, adventure, and mystery that will inspire all ages to come see why and how Peter Pan was born. Inspired by true events, "Finding Neverland" is one the year’s best films.

Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban DVD (in Film )
"Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban" is the best of three Harry Potter films presented on the big screen thus far. Fans will embrace the maturity of the characters, ponder the mystery that is set for them and enjoy the adventure that will bring them back for more.

Bad Education (in Film )
La Mala Educacion (The Bad Education) is an unfortunate step back from the excellence of Almodovar's recen t work.  He goes sexually overboard and loses sight of the narrative.  The result is an incredibly poor third act that will leave you unsatisfied and disappointed.

Ray (in Film )
This film and Foxx’s performance has been talked about for most of the year and after seeing it, I concur, that Foxx has definitely reached the peak where Denzel, Will Smith, and Morgan Freeman are now as  "Ray" is truly one of the best films this year.
Vera Drake (in Film )
Vera Drake, the latest film from British auteur Mike Leigh, is quite possibly the best abortion drama ever made.  It is an emotional powerhouse, deeply moving and complex with an astonishing, bravura performance from lead actress Imelda Staunton.
Shall We Dance? (in Film )
The new version which stars Richard Gere, Susan Sarandon, and Jennifer Lopez, brings in the same format, but it doesn’t really transcend well with an American audience, and Lopez’s role is so wooden that it leaves the film with mixed results.

Hair Show (in Film )
Another low budget, low expectational; classified "Black Exploitation" film filled with brand name actors that make the film go nowhere...again.
Friday Night Lights (in Film )
It is far from perfect and not in the league of the great sports films, but is an accomplished effort and well worth seeing
Taxi (in Film )
Taxi is  film that has plenty of action, laughs, and sex appeal. While the film has the look of a cliché buddy movie, Latifah and Fallon bring in their own flair of comedic skills to make a difference and take you on a New York joyride.

Stage Beauty (in Film )
Billy Crudup, who has been so underrated an actor, shows just how good he is in playing the role of a female and male. It's his performance that takes the film from being dull and stage-like to exhilarating and entertaining.
I Heart Huckabees (in Film )
Huckabees is a tremendously clever satire of modern culture. It is a wacky, peculiar film that'll have you bored with pretentiousness or extolling its genius.
