Rating T-Meter Title | Year Add Date
C 33% Labor Day (2014) " In compressing Maynard's deeply internal book into the necessarily visual film format, Reitman strips the story of nearly all of the book's barely repressed sexual heat, and hence most of its impact." — Dallas Morning News
Posted Jan 30, 2014
A 70% Les Misérables (2012) " One of the most emotionally devastating and gratifying movies I've ever seen." — Dallas Morning News
Posted Dec 25, 2012
C- 21% Taken 2 (2012) " It's the same movie, second verse, but unfortunately with far less suspense this time around." — Dallas Morning News
Posted Oct 4, 2012
A- 55% People Like Us (2012) " It's a movie that's in a league with films from the golden age of family drama, stories like Ordinary People and Kramer vs. Kramer, although People's dashes of comedy render it far less grim than those examples." — Dallas Morning News
Posted Jun 28, 2012
C- 38% Dark Shadows (2012) " The film's biggest disappointment is the utter lack of chemistry between Depp and either Green or Heathcote." — Dallas Morning News
Posted May 10, 2012
D+ 66% The Woman in Black (2012) " If there is a single haunted house or ghost story cliché that goes unexploited in The Woman in Black, I'd be surprised." — Dallas Morning News
Posted Feb 2, 2012
B+ 79% The Grey (2012) " This gritty, relentlessly intense survival tale easily gets dibs on "feel-cold" movie of the year." — Dallas Morning News
Posted Jan 26, 2012
B 60% Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows (2011) " This new outing matches the original Sherlock in wit, action and the bromance between Robert Downey Jr. and Jude Law." — Dallas Morning News
Posted Dec 15, 2011
C+ 24% Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1 (2011) " If you insist on seeing the entire, seemingly never-ending 117 minutes, though, you're going to spend at least 87 of those minutes bored out of your mind." — Dallas Morning News
Posted Nov 17, 2011
C- 60% Glee: The 3D Concert Movie (2011) " Even the totally Gleeked-out, most ardent fans of Fox's hit television show Glee may find that the franchise's latest endeavor leaves little to sing about." — Dallas Morning News
Posted Aug 11, 2011
B- 73% Sarah's Key (2011) " Fans of the book will be glad to hear that it's a faithful adaptation, if markedly less compelling than de Rosnay's prose." — Dallas Morning News
Posted Jul 28, 2011
A 84% A Better Life (2011) " Director Chris Weitz neatly avoids sanctimony by centering the engrossing story on a father-son relationship, letting the audience make up its own mind about the overarching matter of illegal immigration." — Dallas Morning News
Posted Jul 1, 2011
A- 48% Mr. Popper's Penguins (2011) " Be prepared for the oh-so-real possibility that your kid -- or your wife -- is going to want a penguin for Christmas after seeing this movie." — Dallas Morning News
Posted Jun 16, 2011
B+ 60% Water for Elephants (2011) " Can the film live up to Sara Gruen's best-selling novel, an adored word-of-mouth phenomenon? [Yes.]" — Dallas Morning News
Posted Apr 21, 2011
A- 74% The Big Uneasy (2010) " Previous documentaries about Hurricane Katrina and New Orleans have gone for the heart. For The Big Uneasy, though, writer-director-producer-narrator Harry Shearer takes aim at the brain." — Dallas Morning News
Posted Mar 10, 2011
4.5/5 73% Megamind (2010) " Ferrell, Fey and Hill acquit themselves hilariously, and Cross steals the movie as Minion." — Dallas Morning News
Posted Nov 4, 2010
4.5/5 58% Paranormal Activity 2 (2010) " The filmmakers up the ante here with the addition of a smart teenage girl, an adorable toddler and a protective (but freaked-out) German shepherd named Abby." — Dallas Morning News
Posted Oct 23, 2010
3.5/5 46% Hereafter (2010) " The last 30 minutes of the film hint at what it might have been if someone had whipped that script into shape; the idea of exploring experiences of the afterlife was a great one, and Eastwood certainly has the vision to pull it off." — Dallas Morning News
Posted Oct 22, 2010
4.5/5 49% The Twilight Saga: Eclipse (2010) " Slade skips the stultifying slow-motion fantasy sequences that so weighed down New Moon in favor of a well-paced blend of action and introspection." — Dallas Morning News
Posted Jun 29, 2010
4.5/5 40% Letters to Juliet (2010) " Cinematographer Marco Pontecorvo's sun-drenched palette would be a perfectly sound reason to see this film, but happily it's not the only one." — Dallas Morning News
Posted May 14, 2010
4.5/5 58% She's Out of My League (2010) " The movie's terrific -- it's easily my favorite film released so far this year." — Dallas Morning News
Posted Mar 12, 2010
5/5 70% Sherlock Holmes (2009) " This is rip-roaring action-adventure of high order, a sometimes dizzying but ultimately thrilling display of showmanship on the part of the actors, director and screenwriters." — Dallas Morning News
Posted Dec 25, 2009
2/5 28% The Twilight Saga: New Moon (2009) " Inept cinematography? Oh, yes. Dark and moody is one thing, but this is so murky you have to squint to figure out what's going on." — Dallas Morning News
Posted Nov 19, 2009
5/5 84% The September Issue (2009) " It's got everything one could hope for in a movie experience: drama, wit, stifled rage, unbridled glee, pouty adolescents wearing far too much makeup, massive egos and a heroine who is absolutely irresistible." — Dallas Morning News
Posted Sep 11, 2009
3/5 19% I Hate Valentine's Day (2009) " It's like eating a plain Hershey's bar on that supposedly most romantic day of the year. It may soothe your sweet tooth for a brief bit, but you'll still be longing for Godiva." — Dallas Morning News
Posted Jul 10, 2009
B+ 64% Marley & Me (2008) " Marley, of course, steals every scene he's in, which is most of them." — Dallas Morning News
