Signs

Raphael Pour-Hashemi has reviewed the theatrical release of Signs. Another excellent mystical thriller from director M. Night Shyamalan starring Mel Gibson and Joaquin Phoenix.

Lilo & Stitch

Raphael Pour-Hashemi has reviewed the theatrical release of Lilo & Stitch. A pleasant alien-befriends-young-girl Disney movie that lacks the spark of Shrek and Monsters, Inc. but will still please the youngsters.

Bourne Identity, The

Daniel Stephens has reviewed the theatrical release of The Bourne Identity. Matt Damon headlines in this solid thriller that starts off superbly with its 'what the hell's going on' opening act, but sadly runs out of steam with a formulaic last half hour.

Frailty

Gary Couzens has reviewed the theatrical release of Frailty, a largely impressive horror/thriller directed by and starring Bill Paxton.

Eight Legged Freaks

Raphael Pour-Hashemi has reviewed the theatrical release of Eight Legged Freaks. The CGI B-movie spider spectacular is an uninspired and tired retread of many a fifties' cheap budget horror. Starring David Arquette and Kari Wuhrer.
