LETTER FROM THE EDITOR:

M an of the Century" is a splendidly original and engaging film... What? Haven't heard of it? Director Adam Abraham wouldn't be surprised.

A trio of Memphis film school graduates has created a movie with a sort of whacked-out charm that's like finding the meaning of life by reading Dr. Seuss backwards.

Woody and the toybox gang are back in Disney/Pixar's "Toy Story 2" and a couple more reviews check in this week.

Plus, reviews of End of Days, Flawless, Princess Mononoke, memorable holiday TV specials, and more.
