Rating T-Meter Title | Year Add Date
1.5/4 45% Until the Light Takes Us (2009) " Their dedication to giving the players their moment on the podium prevented Aites and Ewell from asking provocative questions, or, it would seem, any questions at all." — Boston Globe
Posted Feb 11, 2010
1.5/4 50% Christmas on Mars (2008) " Warmth and humor, Flaming Lips calling cards, are nowhere to be found." — Boston Globe
Posted Oct 31, 2008
3/4 74% Kurt Cobain About a Son (2007) " Kurt Cobain About a Son is a lovely piece of filmmaking, a gripping, minimalist marriage of sound and image." — Boston Globe
Posted Nov 2, 2007
3.5/4 100% Fearless Freaks (2005) " Cobbles together an appropriately whacked-out portrait of the band's surreal and haphazard career trajectory." — Boston Globe
Posted Apr 29, 2005
3.5/4 88% MC5*: A True Testimonial (2002) " Thompson has lassoed the short, wild, luminous life of a rock band that crystallized a mirror-image cultural moment." — Boston Globe
Posted Mar 12, 2004
3/4 54% Just an American Boy (2003) " Earle's song introductions, like those of his mentors Townes Van Zandt and Guy Clark, are as meaty, pointed, and touching as the tunes themselves, and his spoken words -- full of humor and humanity -- are the heart of the film." — Boston Globe
Posted Nov 28, 2003
3/4 82% Gigantic (A Tale of Two Johns) (2002) " Generous helpings of performance footage and band interviews will gratify the group's die-hard cult of fans. But there's stuff of interest here for general audiences, too." — Boston Globe
Posted Aug 2, 2002
1.5/4 27% How High (2001) " The biggest problem, ironically, is that even though the plot and the action center on smoking pot, it's not enough of a stoner flick." — Boston Globe
Posted Dec 21, 2001
7% Glitter (2001) " Fueled by formula, riddled with cliches, mindless from beginning to end." — Boston Globe
Posted Sep 21, 2001
72% Happy Accidents (2001) " A quirky little film that delves deeply into our preconceived notions of reality and closely held myths of love." — Boston Globe
Posted Aug 24, 2001
47% The Princess Diaries (2001) " The most surprising thing about this movie is just how little humor or heart it has." — Boston Globe
Posted Aug 3, 2001
23% Deuce Bigalow: Male Gigolo (1999) " Just saying the name of this movie makes you feel stupid." — Boston Globe
Posted Jan 1, 2000
2/4 62% The Tigger Movie (2000) " The Tigger Movie falls short of recent children's animated features." — Boston Globe
