Cinema Review Archive: October 2001

Others, The

Raphael Pour-Hashemi has reviewed the theatrical release of The Others. A fantastic horror story with spine-tingling tension and a refreshing lack of CGI effects. Go see it now and be scared!

Jeepers Creepers

Mike Sutton has reviewed the theatrical release of Jeepers Creepers. Not all that bad, but not all that good either, this horror film might satisfy particularly undemanding horror film addicts

America's Sweethearts

Raphael Pour-Hashemi has reviewed the theatrical release of America's Sweethearts. A lightweight Hollywood romcom with a heavy cast and low on laughs. Opens tomorrow.

Man Who Wasn't There, The

Alexander Larman has reviewed the theatrical release of The Man who wasn't there. A surprisingly good film from the Coen bros, which combines their usual eccentricities with a genuinely gripping plot

Legally Blonde

Raphael Pour-Hashemi has reviewed the theatrical release of Legally Blonde. A dreadful attempt at being a 21st Century version of Clueless that has nothing to offer at all.

Ghost World

Lucy Cardigan has reviewed the theatrical release of Ghost World, due for theatrical release on the 13th November, starring Thora Birch and Steve Buscemi.

Before Night Falls

Raphael Pour-Hashemi has reviewed the theatrical release of Before Night Falls. A flawed yet engrossing look at tortured and persucuted Cuban poet Reinaldo Arenas, featuring an Oscar nominated performance from Javier Bardem.

Kiss of the Dragon

Raphael Pour-Hashemi has reviewed the theatrical release of Kiss Of The Dragon. A highly entertaining action film that delivers a healthy dose of out-and-out action, martial arts, violence, gore and humour. Taken on that level, Kiss of The Dragon is tremendously entertaining.

Original Sin

Raphael Pour-Hashemi has reviewed the theatrical release of Original Sin. An erotic period thriller that would be nothing more than a bad TV movie if it weren't for the heat conjured up by the two leads - Antonio Banderas and Angelina Jolie.

Amelie

Alexander Larman has reviewed the theatrical release of Amelie. A very enjoyable and stylish film, albeit one not quite worthy of the vast amount of hype that has been lavished upon it.

Amores Perros

Raphael Pour-Hashemi has reviewed the theatrical release of Amores Perros. Although the film is now out on R2, you can still see this at some cinemas if you are lucky enough. Amores Perros is a three-story-in-one drama from Mexico that garnered many rave reviews.

Driven

Gary Couzens has reviewed the theatrical release of Driven, a poor Sylvester Stallone "vehicle". For diehard racing fans only.Driven is released in the UK and Ireland today.
