AMELIE (2001)

AmelieEntertaining? INCREDIBLY ENTERTAINING!
Technically any good? WONDERFUL story that never gets bogged down. You KNOW it's not a Hollywood film!
How did I feel as the credits rolled? Truly MAGICAL. GO SEE THIS MOVIE!!
Final Rating? GSN

HARRY POTTER AND THE SORCEROR'S STONE (2001)

Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone (Widescreen Edition)Entertaining? Definitely!
Technically any good? Not great - there was no sign of an actual plot until about halfway through (or even a mention of the title!) but there's PLENTY to look at while waiting.
How did I feel as the credits rolled? Happy, but confused - I think I'd have benefited from reading the book first.
Final Rating? SIYL

MONSTERS, INC. (2001)

Monsters, Inc. (Collector's Edition)Entertaining? AMAZINGLY so.
Technically any good? Overall, everything was SOLID. However, there were a few places where subtle things were heavy-handed and heavy-handed things were all too subtle. But it's all minor.
How did I feel as the credits rolled? GREAT - Pixar is 4 for 4 - will they ever make a bad movie?
Final Rating? GSN
