THE GRUDGE (2004)

Come clean — aren’t you regretting a return to the Shithouse right about now?

GOTHIKA

These stupid moments were amusing, so I probably would have derived less enjoyment from this film if it was a more skillful hack job.

GOSFORD PARK

The best thing about Gosford Park is how bloody British it is

THE GOOD GIRL

The Good Girl is a good movie. Not great, and not particularly memorable.

GOOD NIGHT AND GOOD LUCK

Good Night, And Good Luck is by no means the last word on either Edward R. Murrow or Joseph McCarthy…

GONE

A fundamentalist fun park of fanaticism, holy devotion, and scare tactics so obscene and overwrought that I couldn’t help but rock back and forth with delight.

GOING UPRIVER: THE LONG WAR OF JOHN KERRY

Whatever you might think of 2004’s version of John Kerry, there is no denying that in 1971, his heroic stand against the Vietnam War deserves accolades well into the next century.

GODZILLA 2000

We’re pretty sure it wasn’t Kubrick

THE AVIATOR

While a large part of me mourns the loss of the more “personal” Scorsese from decades past, the transition has done nothing to diminish his storytelling ability…

AUSTIN POWERS IN GOLDMEMBER

There are diamond mines in South Africa. There are coalmines in Pennsylvania. Salt mines in Utah. Apparently, there are crap-mines in Hollywood.
