Rating T-Meter Title | Year Add Date
2.5/4 39% Kingdom of Heaven (2005) " Demands implausible leaps of its hero, the young Balian (Orlando Bloom)." — Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
Posted May 5, 2005
2/4 44% National Treasure (2004) " Despite an interesting premise and a decent cast, the movie swings randomly between too much explanation and not enough, between simplistic cliche and inscrutable babble." — Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
Posted Nov 18, 2004
2/4 11% Exorcist - The Beginning (2004) " Trips over itself in a rush to get gross and then lingers too long on pustules, gaping wounds and maggots." — Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
Posted Aug 23, 2004
3.5/4 94% Gojira (1956) " Instead of a disjointed monster movie, this original Godzilla is a masterful statement about humankind's monstrous abilities to inflict harm on itself and the world." — Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
Posted Jul 15, 2004
2.5/4 29% The Chronicles of Riddick (2004) " An entertaining but shameless mash-up of other escapist fare." — Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
Posted Jun 11, 2004
2.5/4 47% Hidalgo (2004) " An entertaining but far-short- of-epic popcorn romp that's equal parts Indiana Jones and The Last Samurai." — Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
Posted Mar 5, 2004
2.5/4 50% Godzilla, Mothra and King Ghidorah - Giant Monsters All-Out Attack (2001) " The sight of a clumsy, bipedal lizard knocking into what's clearly a cardboard and Styrofoam model has a quaint charm all its own." — Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
Posted Dec 26, 2003
3/4 78% Tupac - Resurrection (2003) " A sympathetic but honest look at a man whose formidable talent was equaled only by his penchant for making bad choices." — Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
Posted Nov 13, 2003
3.5/4 84% Margaret Cho - Notorious C.H.O. (2002) " As hilarious as it is raunchy." — Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
Posted Sep 12, 2002
2.5/4 65% Possession (2002) " For a movie about the power of poetry and passion, there is precious little of either." — Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
Posted Aug 30, 2002
3/4 30% Scooby-Doo (2002) " Worth its weight in Scooby snacks." — Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
Posted Jun 14, 2002
2/4 41% The Scorpion King (2002) " Nothing but an episode of Smackdown! in period costume and with a bigger budget." — Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
Posted Apr 19, 2002
2.5/4 59% Blade II (2002) " Halfway through, however, having sucked dry the undead action flick formula, Blade II mutates into a gross-out monster movie with effects that are more silly than scary." — Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
Posted Mar 21, 2002
1/4 29% The Time Machine (2002) " The question hanging over The Time Machine is not, as the main character suggests, 'what if?' but rather, 'How can you charge money for this?'" — Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
Posted Mar 8, 2002
2.5/4 38% 40 Days and 40 Nights (2002) " Highly flawed but crudely funny." — Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
Posted Mar 1, 2002
1.5/4 14% Crossroads (2002) " Lacking substance and soul, Crossroads comes up shorter than Britney's cutoffs." — Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
Posted Feb 15, 2002
72% Le Pacte des loups (Brotherhood of the Wolf) (2001) " The movie's final third is a sloppy cobble-together of B-grade special effects and laughable plot twists that strain credulity." — Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
Posted Jan 18, 2002
50% Kate & Leopold (2001) " As a spun-sugar, slightly screwball romantic comedy, it's a delicious 'portal' to an hour and change of escapism." — Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
Posted Dec 25, 2001
19% On the Line (2001) " A flawed and formulaic but watchable little fable about the pursuit of true love." — Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
Posted Oct 25, 2001
7% Glitter (2001) " While it seems cruel to kick a person when she's down, it would be inaccurate to call Carey's performance anything other than groan-inducing." — Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
Posted Sep 26, 2001
52% Rock Star (2001) " You don't have to be a metalhead ... to give the funny, ultimately feel-good flick the headbanger's 'devil horns' gesture of approval." — Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
Posted Sep 7, 2001
53% Josie and the Pussycats (2001) " As calculating as the consumer marketing machine it villainizes." — Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
Posted Apr 11, 2001
82% Beyond the Mat (1999) " The film is sometimes riveting -- and sometimes hard to watch." — Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
Posted Jan 1, 2000
62% The Tigger Movie (2000) " Most of the Sherman brothers' songs feel like material tacked on to sell a 'Sing-A-Long' album and are quickly forgotten." — Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
