2004-03-07 Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen Just okay Just okay  
2004-03-10 The Passion of the Christ n/a n/a Mel's version of a very small section of the New Testament. A Christian's movie, it is impossible to tell why the action is taking place unless you already know the story. Cinematography was great. Ratings intentionally omitted.

2004-04-19 Kill Bill, vol. 2 Really liked it Liked it

2004-06-27 The Notebook Really liked it Really liked it Break out the hankies....

2004-07-04 Van Helsing Just okay Just okay Vampires and werewolves and Frankenstein's monster, oh my. I can't even remember all the snarky comments we made about this afterwards. Good thing we saw it at the cheap theater.
2004-07-05 The Clearing Really liked it Really liked it An acting master class from Redford, Mirren and Dafoe.
