Rating T-Meter Title | Year Add Date
3/4 51% Notorious (2009) " A vivid biopic of the larger-than-life rap star that doesn't require you be a big fan of the genre." — Houston Chronicle
Posted Jan 16, 2009
2.5/4 67% Cadillac Records (2008) " Martin could have made a much more compelling film by focusing on just a few characters instead of trying to deconstruct an entire record label." — Houston Chronicle
Posted Dec 5, 2008
2.5/4 25% El Cantante (2007) " The film's first half is an uneven string of scenes that offer little setup and sometimes confuse." — Houston Chronicle
Posted Aug 3, 2007
2/4 —— Guadalupe (2006) " The real problem is that none of the character arcs are taken any further than a basic outline." — Houston Chronicle
Posted Dec 8, 2006
2/4 47% Coffee Date (2006) " Coffee Date has lots going on, and its message -- there are all kinds of love - is an earnest one. But the script relies too heavily on stock characters and overused plot devices to make any real impact." — Houston Chronicle
Posted Nov 17, 2006
3/4 70% Wrestling With Angels: Playwright Tony Kushner (2006) " A sentimental valentine to a man who, underneath it all, simply wants to move people with his message." — Houston Chronicle
Posted Nov 10, 2006
2.5/4 —— Meet Me in Miami (2006) " What sets this fluffy, ultimately enjoyable trifle apart is that it doesn't make a big deal about its cross-cultural cast. The characters are presented as individuals, rather than sweeping representations of a group or race." — Houston Chronicle
Posted Jun 9, 2006
1/4 37% Scary Movie 4 (2006) " Four installments later, the horror-movie jokes have gotten broader, grosser and just plain dumber." — Houston Chronicle
Posted Apr 14, 2006
2.5/4 82% Screen Door Jesus (2005) " Despite the conflicting statements on faith and religion, revenge and forgiveness, and sex and love, the divergent arguments are ultimately part of the ramshackle grace and peculiar charm of this modest, frequently-satisfying film." — Houston Chronicle
Posted Sep 30, 2005
3/4 52% Garçon Stupide (2005) " Tender moments of grace and a mutual respect between the filmmaker and his subject shine through." — Houston Chronicle
Posted Sep 16, 2005
2.5/4 51% Cote d'Azur (Crustaces & Coquillages) (2005) " It's all lots of fun while it lasts, but you'll likely forget about it as soon as the credits roll." — Houston Chronicle
Posted Sep 9, 2005
2/4 32% Pretty Persuasion (2005) " The screenplay by Skander Halim falters. It's too convoluted and cloudy to have the intended effect." — Houston Chronicle
Posted Sep 2, 2005
3/4 —— Beyond the Gates of Splendor (2004) " Hanon doesn't sensationalize his potentially fantastic subject matter; instead, he lets the real words and pictures tell the story." — Houston Chronicle
