Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
D 16% Legends of Oz: Dorothy's Return (2014) "Problems abound from the rushed beginning all the way through the impossibly resolved ending. " ‐ AV Club
Posted May 14, 2014
C 48% Rio 2 (2014) "Despite the attempts at broadening the secondary ideological themes, this is another familiar father-in-crisis tale, dotted with musical interludes for Chenoweth and Clement, and dressed in brighter plumage. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Apr 10, 2014
C 80% Island Of Lemurs: Madagascar (2014) "Part sumptuous IMAX documentary, part fervent but dull conservationist pitch, Island Of Lemurs seems destined instead for an obscurity all too familiar to nature films not released by Disneynature. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Apr 3, 2014
B- 40% Divergent (2014) "The significance of certain deaths hangs entirely on Woodley's performance. She's mostly up to the task ... " ‐ AV Club
Posted Mar 20, 2014
C+ 79% Mr. Peabody & Sherman (2014) "Unlike the whimsical, slapstick-driven shorts on which it's based, this feature-length adaptation adds an obligatory emotional arc that feels at odds with the zany spirit of historical time-travel tales. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Mar 6, 2014
B+ 96% The LEGO Movie (2014) "Miller and Lord have gone far beyond the call of duty. Their Lego Movie is effervescent in style, conveying a substantive message without ever devolving into saccharine preachiness. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Feb 6, 2014
C+ 23% That Awkward Moment (2014) "Tom Gormican's debut yearns to stand out as a benchmark for what dating is like at this moment in time, all the while working with the same basic toolkit as every other film in the genre. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Jan 30, 2014
F 10% The Nut Job (2014) "Every beat of the story is a watered-down, jokeless version of previous children's films ... The Nut Job seems designed to trick misinformed parents into plopping down money to occupy their children for just over an hour. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Jan 16, 2014
C No Score Yet Lost Girl: Season 4 (TV, 2013-2014) "Lost Girl looks like a mistaken heir to the Xena and Hercules throne, a schlocky, low-budget genre show with its own interpretation of established mythological characters. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Jan 13, 2014
D+ 57% Justin Bieber's Believe (2013) "When it strays from the glitzy pyrotechnics of a Miami concert, it descends into another manipulative PR stunt. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Dec 27, 2013
B 89% Frozen (2013) "Most importantly, this is a long-needed step in the right direction to a more varied depiction of female characters in Disney's canon. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Nov 27, 2013
C No Score Yet Family Guy: Season 10 (TV, 2011-2012) "I would have less of a problem with the typically shallow excuse for a plot if there was more funny material. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Nov 26, 2013
A- 100% Southland: Season 5 (TV, 2013) "Southland is a formidable television show, one that doesn't get enough credit for the work it does, but now that it has finally found some stability, maybe it will get more attention. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Nov 19, 2013
C- 18% Free Birds (2013) "A film that was probably close to completion before anyone involved realized they were portraying a fight between turkeys and English settlers as the largest conflict in the European colonization of North America. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Oct 31, 2013
B- 100% Grimm: Season 3 (TV, 2013-2014) "Grimm has built some disparate, necessary pieces while staying alive over the past two years, to the point where the show has a surprisingly fervent niche fan base and actual anticipation heading into this season. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Oct 28, 2013
A 100% The Hollow Crown: Season 1 (TV, 2012) "This is a definitive visual portrait of Richard II, the single best widely available instance of a severely underrated history play with dramatic thematic ramifications for English identity. " ‐ AV Club

A No Score Yet The Hollow Crown: Richard II "This is a definitive visual portrait of Richard II, the single best widely available instance of a severely underrated history play with dramatic thematic ramifications for English identity. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Sep 23, 2013
B- No Score Yet Psych: Season 7 (TV, 2013) "On the level of entertainment that can accompany a workout or an hour of relaxation, Psych still fits solidly into that category. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Aug 20, 2013
C- 56% Treasure Island (2012) "Settles into boredom quickly, meandering at a glacial pace through mutinous developments and character shifts that could have used a punch-up at the script level. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Aug 14, 2013
D+ 14% The Smurfs 2 (2013) "Smurfs 2 is at least slightly superior to the absolutely dire first film, but it remains a series for kids whose parents can't just pop in a DVD of something better. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Jul 31, 2013
C- No Score Yet Franklin & Bash: Season 3 (TV, 2013) "I can't honestly say that I would recommend Franklin & Bash to anyone, but I also can't deny that still, against my better judgment, I can ignore the obvious glaring problems to watch breezy, entertaining trial scenes. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Jun 19, 2013
C+ No Score Yet Brooklyn DA: Season 1 (TV, 2013) "It's a mildly intriguing but mostly boring docudrama. " ‐ AV Club
Posted May 29, 2013
A- 100% Southland: Season 10 "Southland is a formidable television show, one that doesn't get enough credit for the work it does, but now that it has finally found some stability, maybe it will get more attention. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Feb 13, 2013
C No Score Yet Lost Girl: Season 3 (TV, 2013) "It's every misogynistic, male-gaze hyper-sexualized cliche, supposedly made okay by making the Fae prison guards Amazons. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Jan 14, 2013
B No Score Yet American Dad!: Season 8 (TV, 2012-2013) "There is enough material in the first two acts to laugh at to tip the scales to success. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Sep 30, 2012
C+ 100% Grimm: Season 2 (TV, 2012-2013) "Here Grimm stands: a success despite all prognostication otherwise, more convoluted and mythology-based than ever before. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Aug 13, 2012
B+ No Score Yet Lost Girl: Season 2 (TV, 2011-2012) "The visual effects are low budget, but the storytelling is enthralling. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Apr 16, 2012
C+ 59% Grimm: Season 1 (TV, 2011-2012) "The pieces are there, and if you jumbled things around I'm sure there's a way to get a show like this made right, but this just isn't it. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Oct 28, 2011
B- No Score Yet Black Dynamite: Season 1 (TV, 2012) "It's certainly silly and clever, which will be enough for some. " ‐ AV Club
