Youth of the Beast
Another wildly inventive crime thriller from a criminally underappreciated director.

Jan. 19, 2001 Screens Review by Jerry Renshaw

X-Men

Jan. 19, 2001 Screens Review by Mike Emery

Crazy Joe

The St. Valentine's Day Massacre
Roger Corman took a break from cheapo horror and sci-fi flicks to make this cheapo gangster work (starring the late Jason Robards as Al Capone), but it's still a Corman quickie from beginning to end.

A Christmas Story strikes a balance between being sentimental and irreverent, with Peter Billingsley putting in one of the better performances ever from a child actor and the rest of the cast clearly having a good time.

Santa Claus
This Santa might actually frighten a small child, chortling uncontrollably through the whole movie and leering at the camera. More than likely, however, a kid above the age of four would probably find it unbearably hokey and dumb.

Santa Claus Conquers the Martians
If Ed Wood had ever made a Christmas movie, it would probably have turned out a lot like this.

Dec. 22, 2000 Screens Review by Jerry Renshaw

Sid and Nancy
Although it was described as "pure fantasy" by the Sex Pistols' Johnny Rotten, Sid and Nancy gives the impression that it's not that far off the mark.

Dec. 8, 2000 Screens Review by Stephen MacMillan Moser

Snow Day
From winter fun to first love, Snow Day is a modest but entertaining effort.

Dec. 8, 2000 Screens Review by Mike Emery

Gladiator
Gladiator: the most overhyped epic of the year.

A Scandal in Paris
A Scandal in Paris is Douglas Sirk before Douglas Sirk became good.

Erin Brockovich
Julia Roberts rises above her oppressive hype to turn in a winsome performance in this Steven Soderbergh film.

Tokyo Drifter & Branded to Kill
Japanese filmmaker Seijun Suzuki was fired from his film company for his off-the-wall cinematics; these two Sixties gangster movies explain why.

Dec. 1, 2000 Screens Review by Jerry Renshaw

Plunkett & Macleane
Plunkett & Macleane, the first film from Jake Scott (son of Ridley), is a lush but troubled debut.

Nov. 24, 2000 Screens Review by Stephen MacMillan Moser

The Grissom Gang
