Chan has had a few popular films, but only when paired with an American star. Jet Li's "Romeo Must Die" did reasonably well, but "The One" tanked. Now he's paired with DMX, a hip-hop/rapper who should not be mistaken for an actor. And the result is trash.

Hall release year: 2004 film rating: Three Stars sound/picture: Four Stars reviewed by: Paul Lingas Philip K. Dick was one of the finest science fiction writers of the 20th century. Unfortunately, he died at a relatively early age and we are left to wonder what he would think of all of the films that have been made based on his short stories. “Blade Runner” is the only film he ever got to see any part of, but others, such as “Minority Report” and “Total Recall,” have been made since then. The latest Dick work to be transferred to the big screen is “Paycheck,” a brilliant story that transfers onto the screen under the steady eye and frenetic hand of acclaimed action director John Woo with mixed results.

title: Master And Commander: The Far Side of the World function popUp(URL,NAME) { amznwin=window.open(URL,NAME,'location=yes,scrollbars=yes,status=yes,toolbar=yes,resizable=yes,width=380,height=450,screenX=10,screenY=10,top=10,left=10'); amznwin.focus();} document.open(); document.write(""); document.close();  studio: 20th Century-Fox Home Video MPAA rating: Rated PG-13 starring: Russell Crowe, Paul Bettany, Edward Woodall, Chris Larkin, Max Pirkis, Jack Randall, Max Benitz, Lee Ingleby, Robert Pugh, Richard McCabe release year: 2003 film rating: Five stars sound/picture rating: Five stars reviewed by: Bill Warren A movie that seemed somewhat ponderous and a little slow in theaters comes to vivid, exciting life on home video. Even though the giant wide screen was the best place to see the handsome photography, somehow viewing the film at home enhances the claustrophobic feel of the movie, and enables the viewer to get closer to the characters. This now seems like the best movie of 2003, a high water mark in Peter Weir’s notable career.

title: Kill Bill Volume 1 function popUp(URL,NAME) { amznwin=window.open(URL,NAME,'location=yes,scrollbars=yes,status=yes,toolbar=yes,resizable=yes,width=380,height=450,screenX=10,screenY=10,top=10,left=10'); amznwin.focus();} document.open(); document.write(""); document.close( studio: Miramax Home Entertainment MPAA rating: R starring: Uma Thurman, Lucy Liu, Vivica A. Fox, Michael Madsen, Daryl Hannah, David Carradine, Sonny Chiba, Julie Drewfus, Chiaki Kuriyama release year: 2003 film rating: Four Stars sound/picture: Four Stars reviewed by: Abbie Bernstein Director/writer Quentin Tarantino is sort of like a human refinery, distilling old movies rather than crude oil. Elements of low-budget exploitation movies from the ‘60s and ‘70s – American, Japanese, Hong Kong, Spanish, you name it – come together in his films in ways that are both previously undreamt-of and perfectly natural.

title: Secondhand Lions function popUp(URL,NAME) { amznwin=window.open(URL,NAME,'location=yes,scrollbars=yes,status=yes,toolbar=yes,resizable=yes,width=380,height=450,screenX=10,screenY=10,top=10,left=10'); amznwin.focus();} document.open(); document.write(""); document.close();  studio: New Line Home Entertainment MPAA rating: PG starring: Michael Caine, Robert Duvall, Haley Joel Osment, Kyra Sedgwick, Nicky Katt, Josh Lucas, Deirdre O’Connell, Kevin Haberer, Christian Kane, Emmanuelle Vaugnier, Michael O’Neill, Adam Ozturk. release year: 2003 film rating: Two and a half stars sound/picture rating: Four stars reviewed by: Bill Warren As can be seen by the long list of extras, New Line Home Entertainment has given “Secondhand Lions” the deluxe “Platinum Series” treatment. The trouble is that the movie itself doesn’t warrant this approach. It’s not without some value—a movie with this cast would have to be worth watching at least once—but overall, it’s a disappointment. A warm human comedy should center on believable characters, but those in “Secondhand Lions” are all too clearly carefully manufacturered to be loveable. The three leads have few real flaws and only a handful of artificial-feeling traits. Even actors as good as Caine and Duvall have to have material to develop, but writer-director Tim ...
