Rating T-Meter Title | Year Add Date
1.5/5 14% Blended (2014) " A mess of nearly epic proportions, the film sees Barrymore trying to wrest control away from a bored, listless Sandler, who, at this point in his career, seems other either unwilling or unable to turn off/turn down his inner moron." — Cinephiled
Posted May 22, 2014
4.5/5 91% X-Men: Days of Future Past (2014) " Thrilling, heady and not just a little funny, it's easily as good as Singer's other X-films, and rivals the best of the Marvel-based movies to date." — Cinephiled
Posted May 21, 2014
3/5 62% Million Dollar Arm (2014) " (In)the subsequent hour or so, it gradually reveals just enough charm to overcome its many deficiencies, mostly in the storytelling department." — Cinephiled
Posted May 15, 2014
3.5/5 73% Godzilla (2014) " "(The)antithesis of recent, 'action-porn' hits like last year's 'Man of Steel,' which had less emotion and depth of character than your average video game."" — Cinephiled
Posted May 13, 2014
2/5 47% Last Vegas (2013) " "(It) could have been and probably should have been more accurately titled 'Jokes about Elderly Aches, Pains and Complaints: The Movie.'"" — Cinephiled
Posted May 12, 2014
3/5 65% Thor: The Dark World (2013) " "A decided improvement in the balance department. Not only do we get more in the way of humor, we get more convincing, exciting action, as well as a few welcome surprises."" — Cinephiled
Posted May 12, 2014
3/5 69% About Time (2013) " "It's just so overflowing with ideas and characters that the main point it's trying to make nearly eludes it."" — Cinephiled
Posted May 12, 2014
4/5 93% Dallas Buyers Club (2013) " "Surprisingly balanced, in terms of the way it treats its characters and concepts."" — Cinephiled
Posted May 12, 2014
4/5 74% The Hobbit: The Desolation Of Smaug (2013) " "(There) seems to be more action this time around. It's much more thrilling and is, again, pertinent, necessary action. And the character moments just work better in this installment."" — Cinephiled
Posted May 12, 2014
2/5 24% Walking With Dinosaurs (2013) " "(A)beautifully animated but plot-thin kids film that borrows heavily in the story department from both the Land Before Time and Ice Age movies, as well as various Disney animated classics."" — Cinephiled
Posted May 12, 2014
2/5 29% Grudge Match (2013) " "(Not only) is this sports comedy poorly timed, it has more than just a whiff of desperation, both on the part of its remaining cast and the filmmaker."" — Cinephiled
Posted May 12, 2014
4/5 89% The Wind Rises (2014) " "(The) good news is that the film is a flawed but still very enjoyable flight of fancy."" — Cinephiled
Posted May 12, 2014
1.5/5 42% 300: Rise of an Empire (2014) " "(An) action-fantasy that's far more fun to parody and poke fun at than it is to go back and watch."" — Cinephiled
Posted May 12, 2014
2.5/5 22% Need For Speed (2014) " "However, the auto racing action-thriller meanders so much and takes so long to get its character and situations where they're going you'll be tempted to call it 'Need for Judicious Editing' instead."" — Cinephiled
Posted May 12, 2014
4/5 79% The Raid 2 (2014) " "If you're able to withstand its extreme assault on your senses (at least visually), the thrilling, action-packed film is definitely worth a look."" — Cinephiled
Posted May 12, 2014
1.5/5 74% Oculus (2014) " "This allegedly supernatural horror movie takes so much time getting to the actual "horror" elements - all in the name of supposed character and story "progression" - that it may bore even the most easily frightened of audiences to tears."" — Cinephiled
Posted May 12, 2014
3/5 51% Cuban Fury (2014) " "Luckily, (Nick Frost has) still got enough charm to make most of us overlook the more far-fetched and dumber story elements. And surprisingly, he's fleet of foot enough to be able to pull off some pretty tricky moves and sequences."" — Cinephiled
Posted May 9, 2014
3/5 89% Bears (2014) " "And luckily, the movie does gets out of its own way (eventually) and tells a somewhat engaging, 'true-life' nature tale."" — Cinephiled
Posted May 9, 2014
3/5 54% Fading Gigolo (2014) " "But given that so few movies these days give any substantial screen time to talented, but supposedly "aging" character actors like (John) Turturro and Liev Schreiber, you can't help but appreciate it a little more."" — Cinephiled
Posted May 9, 2014
2/5 19% Transcendence (2014) " "'Transcendence' winds up being in the position of being the first - but certainly not the last - big disappointment of the 2014 Summer Movie Season."" — Cinephiled
Posted May 9, 2014
26% Brick Mansions (2014) " "Frankly, there are a lot of actors who have a lot of worse 'last films' on their credits."" — Cinephiled
Posted May 9, 2014
1.5/5 48% Rio 2 (2014) " The plot ... borrows very heavily from some of Ben Stiller's live-action hits, in particular a trio of comedies that, like this would-be 'series,' also worse and more crass as the follow-up films were churned out in assembly line fashion."" — Cinephiled
Posted May 9, 2014
4.5/5 89% Captain America: The Winter Soldier (2014) " "'The Winter Soldier' not only satisfies with its plentiful action scenes, it also offers some intriguing commentary on the current political and world climate, and turns out to be a sterling character piece."" — Cinephiled
Posted May 9, 2014
1.5/5 24% The Other Woman (2014) " "This film, on the other hand, seems so desperate for laughs that you can practically see the flop sweat appear on its performers as they flail from one obnoxiously, uncomfortable scene to the next."" — Cinephiled
Posted May 9, 2014
2/5 53% The Amazing Spider-Man 2 (2014) " "It's as if the lessons that were learned by the widely loathed, 2007 'three-quel' Spider-Man 3 were lost on the filmmakers and studio, who are condemned to repeat those mistakes of the past."" — Cinephiled
Posted May 9, 2014
1/5 16% Legends of Oz: Dorothy's Return (2014) " "Aside from giving some very talented people so little to work with, perhaps the film's biggest crimes are its crimes against cinema and literature."" — Cinephiled
Posted May 9, 2014
3.5/5 73% Neighbors (2014) " "When the film does work, which it does with the more comic aspects, it's uproariously funny."" — Cinephiled
Posted May 9, 2014
2.5/4 81% Cairo Time (2010) " The at-times slow and indulgent pacing of Cairo Time will frustrate a few viewers, even if the Egyptian landmarks and scenery is stunning." — Deseret News, Salt Lake City
Posted Sep 2, 2010
2/4 53% Going the Distance (2010) " In the end, the movie feels confused, conflicted and muddled. It winds up pleasing almost no one." — Deseret News, Salt Lake City
Posted Sep 2, 2010
3.5/4 96% Restrepo (2010) " To say that the experience is powerful is putting it mildly." — Deseret News, Salt Lake City
Posted Sep 2, 2010
1.5/4 73% Piranha 3-D (2010) " Its only saving grace, if the film can really be said to have one, is that the filmmakers were fully aware that they weren't making anything that could be taken seriously." — Deseret News, Salt Lake City
Posted Sep 1, 2010
3/4 66% The American (2010) " The beautiful Italian scenery is almost worth the price of admission by itself." — Deseret News, Salt Lake City
Posted Sep 1, 2010
1/4 72% The Last Exorcism (2010) " An ill-considered, laughably dumb coda sequence only compounds Exorcism's numerous problems." — Deseret News, Salt Lake City
Posted Aug 26, 2010
4/4 71% Waking Sleeping Beauty (2010) " [It] may not be thrilling, riveting viewing for some, but for animation fans, and for aficionados of Disney, the movie is must-see." — Deseret News, Salt Lake City
Posted Aug 26, 2010
3/4 84% Get Low (2010) " The story is as much a mystery as it is a drama. And there's quite a bit of low-key humor, mostly provided by Duvall and Murray, who's a hoot." — Deseret News, Salt Lake City
Posted Aug 26, 2010
2/4 59% Centurion (2010) " It's certainly not art, and it is not for the squeamish, but at least it does what it sets out to do." — Deseret News, Salt Lake City
Posted Aug 26, 2010
1.5/4 28% Takers (2010) " Takers is a pretty fitting name for a movie that swipes its only good moves from earlier, better heist thrillers and other classic films." — Deseret News, Salt Lake City
Posted Aug 26, 2010
66% Wild Grass (Les Herbes Folles) (2010) " Wild Grass is nearly the same movie as Amelie, only minus the charm and the appeal." — Deseret News, Salt Lake City
Posted Aug 19, 2010
69% Life During Wartime (2010) " This follow-up is not nearly as shocking and provocative as the earlier film. And it's not nearly as effective." — Deseret News, Salt Lake City
Posted Aug 19, 2010
76% Nanny McPhee Returns (2010) " It's a not-completely unwelcome and not-completely terrible sequel, one that actually betters its predecessor." — Deseret News, Salt Lake City
Posted Aug 19, 2010
51% The Switch (2010) " Bateman is good at playing this sort of man-child. Aniston is on cruise control, though she's not awful." — Deseret News, Salt Lake City
Posted Aug 19, 2010
2.5/4 41% The Expendables (2010) " You certainly can't say this over-the-top thriller skimps on action. The final third or so is wall-to-wall brawling, shootings and explosions." — Deseret News, Salt Lake City
Posted Aug 12, 2010
2/4 51% Holy Rollers (2010) " It feels more like a character novelty than anything else, and this potentially unique material is not really explored to its fullest." — Deseret News, Salt Lake City
Posted Aug 12, 2010
2/4 36% Eat Pray Love (2010) " Most of its supposed observations sound more like touchy-feely mumbo-jumbo than honest, useful information and advice." — Deseret News, Salt Lake City
Posted Aug 12, 2010
3/4 82% Scott Pilgrim vs. the World (2010) " Scott Pilgrim vs. the World is perhaps the closest any filmmaker has come yet to translating comic book material directly to the movie screen." — Deseret News, Salt Lake City
Posted Aug 12, 2010
2/4 46% Step Up 3 (2010) " Using 3-D to tell this trite story is, as they say, like putting lipstick on a pig." — Deseret News, Salt Lake City
Posted Aug 5, 2010
2/4 52% Coco Chanel & Igor Stravinsky (2010) " The film quickly turns into a dull slog." — Deseret News, Salt Lake City
Posted Aug 5, 2010
3/4 79% The Other Guys (2010) " [The] matching-up of Ferrell and Wahlberg is inspired." — Deseret News, Salt Lake City
Posted Aug 5, 2010
3/4 81% Countdown to Zero (2010) " If even a quarter of this seemingly unbelievable material can be trusted, that makes this one of the scariest movies seen this year." — Deseret News, Salt Lake City
Posted Aug 5, 2010
1.5/4 14% Cats & Dogs: The Revenge of Kitty Galore (2010) " Acompletely unnecessary, nearly laughless sequel to the surprising 2001 hit, which stretched the one-joke, talking-animals concept as far as it could." — Deseret News, Salt Lake City
