Rating T-Meter Title | Year Add Date
B 43% Race to Witch Mountain (2009) " Smarter than it trusts itself to be." — Seattle Post-Intelligencer
Posted Mar 12, 2009
C 12% Pink Panther 2 (2009) " They are joined by other typically good actors such as Jean Reno, Jeremy Irons, Lily Tomlin and Alfred Molina. Unfortunately, they're underused." — Seattle Post-Intelligencer
Posted Feb 6, 2009
B- 88% Bolt (2008) " Whenever a new kids' film comes out, there's always the hope that it'll work for adults, too. Alas, not this time. But the kids will probably like it." — Seattle Post-Intelligencer
Posted Nov 21, 2008
B 41% The Rocker (2008) " The plot is ultrapredictable, but under the gentle direction of Peter Cattaneo the movie somehow works." — Seattle Post-Intelligencer
Posted Aug 20, 2008
B- 72% And When Did You Last See Your Father? (When Did You Last See Your Father?) (2008) " When it comes down to it, the story of a son who needs validation and his dying father is utterly predictable." — Seattle Post-Intelligencer
Posted Jun 26, 2008
B+ 51% Get Smart (2008) " Ultimately, Get Smart succeeds as a tribute to the original series and as a funny movie in its own right." — Seattle Post-Intelligencer
Posted Jun 19, 2008
B 88% Young@Heart (2007) " Despite the flaws of the filmmaking, the characters who populate the Young@Heart chorus shine through, inspiring young and old alike." — Seattle Post-Intelligencer
Posted Apr 18, 2008
C- 21% Semi-Pro (2008) " Semi-Pro is the perfect name for this movie, because it feels like a half-baked comedy made by semi-professionals." — Seattle Post-Intelligencer
Posted Feb 28, 2008
b 77% Cloverfield (2008) " The movie eventually falls into monster movie clich├ęs...If you're into the movie, you won't care. If you're fed up, you'll just laugh." — Seattle Post-Intelligencer
Posted Jan 17, 2008
B+ 86% Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street (2007) " Sometimes jaunty, often dark, and very stylized. In other words, it's a perfect fit for director Tim Burton." — Seattle Post-Intelligencer
Posted Dec 21, 2007
B 16% The Perfect Holiday (2007) " Either you're in the mood for a sweet and simple Christmas movie or you're not. If you are, then Perfect Holiday should fit the bill nicely." — Seattle Post-Intelligencer
Posted Dec 11, 2007
B- 73% The Mist (2007) " The scenes that really work are the ones that take place outside the supermarket, in the beginning and at the end of the film." — Seattle Post-Intelligencer
Posted Nov 20, 2007
C+ 55% This Christmas (2007) " It's just harmless and bland and dull and predictable, and sometimes that's worse than a bad movie." — Seattle Post-Intelligencer
Posted Nov 20, 2007
C+ 36% Southland Tales (2007) " A few scenes work, but many more don't. Southland Tales may be one feature film that will play better in bits and pieces on the Internet." — Seattle Post-Intelligencer
Posted Nov 15, 2007
B 21% Fred Claus (2007) " It may not be a new holiday classic, but at least it's funny." — Seattle Post-Intelligencer
Posted Nov 9, 2007
B- 51% Bee Movie (2007) " The riskiest move Seinfeld made was to create an unlikable protagonist who is wrong every step of the way, but treat him like a hero." — Seattle Post-Intelligencer
Posted Nov 1, 2007
C+ 51% 30 Days of Night (2007) " With such a good concept for a vampire movie, it's hard to believe it turned out to be this boring." — Seattle Post-Intelligencer
Posted Oct 18, 2007
C- 14% The Ten Commandments (2007) " This new version of the story of Moses is a huge step backward for theatrical CG animation, or any animation for that matter." — Seattle Post-Intelligencer
Posted Oct 18, 2007
C 41% December Boys (2007) " Sometimes the hardest movies to review are the ones that are middle-of-the-road, bland and completely uninspiring, movies like December Boys." — Seattle Post-Intelligencer
Posted Sep 27, 2007
B 59% Hannah Takes the Stairs (2007) " Performances help raise Hannah Takes the Stairs above the realm of self-indulgent cinema to something worth seeing." — Seattle Post-Intelligencer
Posted Sep 27, 2007
B+ 98% The Devil Came on Horseback (2007) " Directors Ricki Stern and Anne Sundberg have found an impressive protagonist in Steidle, but they would have done better to expand the scope of the documentary beyond his personal recollections." — Seattle Post-Intelligencer
Posted Sep 20, 2007
C+ 36% Sydney White (2007) " Although Bynes exudes a devil-may-care attitude that is fun to watch, the formulaic movie ultimately falls apart around her." — Seattle Post-Intelligencer
Posted Sep 20, 2007
B- 43% The Brave One (2007) " Jodie Foster and director Neil Jordan shift the genre to the murky left, where right and wrong are not so black and white." — Seattle Post-Intelligencer
Posted Sep 14, 2007
C 67% Shoot 'Em Up (2007) " In the end, you care about the characters on screen as much as you do for those in video games, which is not at all." — Seattle Post-Intelligencer
Posted Sep 6, 2007
B 23% Balls of Fury (2007) " The reason Balls of Fury works as well as it does, aside from its low aspirations, is because of the charm of Fogler in the lead." — Seattle Post-Intelligencer
Posted Aug 29, 2007
65% Sabrina (1995) " Has a level of complexity rare in contemporary Hollywood." — Film.com
Posted Jan 1, 2000
44% Multiplicity (1996) " I recommend this to anyone who wants to see a solipsistic comedy about the darker side of marriage." — Film.com
Posted Jan 1, 2000
80% The White Balloon (Badkonake sefid) (1995) " Raziah takes everything at face value, forcing us to look again at people and situations we would immediately judge as good or bad -- reason enough to see this film." — Film.com
Posted Jan 1, 2000
79% Seven (Se7en) (1995) " Well worth a look." — Film.com
Posted Jan 1, 2000
88% The Usual Suspects (1995) " After I first saw the film, I recommended it to people as an entertaining and commercial crime thriller; a standard story done very well. And then I saw it again. The movie is so much better the second time." — Film.com
Posted Jan 1, 2000
86% Heat (1995) " The cop/ crime stuff that makes up the bulk of the movie is well thought out and well directed." — Film.com
