Lowest Recommended Age:Mature High Schooler
Movie Release Date:2004

The Hours author Michael Cunningham has adapted his earlier novel for the screen and the result is admirable, respectable, but not completely successful. The book is the internal musings of the four main characters. What made it work was the […]

Movie Release Date:2004

There are two kinds of people in the world, the people who know the 1960′s British television show “Thunderbirds” well enough to hum the theme song and those who say “who?” The show was enormously popular with children and something […]

Lowest Recommended Age:Mature High Schooler
Movie Release Date:2004

“Catwoman” is kitty litter. Awkward and clumsy as a cat in high heels, this version of the comic book character Catwoman does not have enough to sustain one life, much less nine. Written in the comic books as Batman’s female […]

Lowest Recommended Age:Middle School
Movie Release Date:2004

The Maze Runner
Yes, it's another dystopic YA trilogy (actually, there's a fourth volume, a prequel), and yes, only a teenager with fabulous cheekbones can save the day. But "The Maze Runner" is not a lesser repeat. It is a worthy addition to the genre, an absorbing drama with surprising turns and even more surpris
