Here’s a dozen reviews from Your Humble Reviewer’s work for All Movie Guide during 2003. Subjects include the least interesting example of all the successful big-budget disaster flicks, an early John Woo movie that shows off his skill for action as well as his pet themes and Mad Magazine’s misbegotten attempt to make a Hollywood comedy with the help of Robert Downey Sr.(!). It’s a pretty wily bunch and has something to offer cult movie fans of several kinds. Top Recommendation – if you’ve never seen American Me, put it at the top of your list: it’s a brilliant, oft-heartbreaking crime epic that never turns away from the ugliest qualities of criminal life to communicate its message.
