Atlantis: The Lost Empire

The movie, Atlantis: The Lost Empire – formerly just called Atlantis until Disney figured that people were too stupid to know what Atlantis is – is the movie I’ve been waiting years for. I thought I was going to see it with Titan A.E., but I didn’t. I thought I was going to get it with Heavy Metal 2000, and I was sorely disappointed. In fact, I’ve been waiting for a movie like this since I first saw the heavily edited version of the original Heavy Metal on TBS many many years back.

Any Given Sunday

Any Given Sunday is chock full of excellent stars, but the story is paper-thin, full of every cliché in the football movie manual, very predictable, and probably an hour too long. In fact, by my estimate, if you cut out all of the football highlights, you’d be left with half an hour of movie.
