Rating T-Meter Title | Year Add Date
B 85% Ivory Tower (2014) " A sobering look at the cost of higher education." — The Playlist
Posted Jun 16, 2014
B+ 75% Chinese Puzzle (2014) " Between this and Richard Linklater's 'Before' trilogy, we're supporters of indie films joining blockbusters in serialization. " — The Playlist
Posted May 16, 2014
B+ 83% Belle (2014) " It has all the hallmarks of the genre style-wise, but it never feels stuffy. Fans of the genre have spent a lot of time in this world, but we're seeing it through new eyes." — The Playlist
Posted May 11, 2014
C 15% Endless Love (2014) " It's a movie-length cliché about the type of love that explains why drugstores are stocked with cheap, forgettable Valentine's Day gifts bought by teenagers and the immature at heart." — The Playlist
Posted Feb 14, 2014
B 91% 12 O'clock Boys (2014) " An exciting, beautifully shot look at a subculture through the eyes of one of its most devoted admirers." — The Playlist
Posted Jan 31, 2014
C 29% Grudge Match (2013) " ...while it's an occasionally funny film with good performances from its stars, it's poorly and cheaply made." — The Playlist
Posted Dec 27, 2013
A- 96% The Crash Reel (2013) " Amidst all the trauma that had me crying more than once throughout the film...I was amazed by the incredible feats performed by the athletes. " — The Playlist
Posted Dec 13, 2013
D 20% Expecting (2013) " Give us farts, but please make them funny ones. " — The Playlist
Posted Dec 7, 2013
B 50% A.C.O.D. (2013) " First-time director Stu Zicherman deserves the most praise just for assembling this cast, and particularly for giving Scott such a big role. These are astonishingly talented people who do most of the heavy lifting." — The Playlist
Posted Oct 3, 2013
B- 68% Haute Cuisine (2013) " Unlike Hortense's flavorful cooking, Haute Cuisine is aggressively bland. It's the type of French film that you'd recommend to people who think they don't like French films for being arty." — The Playlist
Posted Sep 27, 2013
B 60% GMO OMG (2013) " With the cinematography and its family-centric approach, it takes what could have been a dry subject and broadens its appeal." — The Playlist
Posted Sep 13, 2013
C- 10% Little Fockers (2010) " Families will flock to the holiday release with gusto, but it's up for debate whether 100 minutes with the Focker and Byrnes families is worse than quality time with your own dysfunctional clan. " — The Playlist
Posted Aug 15, 2013
C 67% The Company Men (2011) " The Company Men, aka "The Supposed Problems of Unsympathetic Rich People" or "Good Actors Stuck in a Mediocre Movie," tries to be timely, but it's as out of touch as Pat Buchanan. " — The Playlist
Posted Aug 15, 2013
B- 83% Potiche (2011) " Even though we don't really care about the dialogue or script at times, it's easy--and fun!--to be distracted by the pretty pictures. " — The Playlist
Posted Aug 15, 2013
B 77% In A Better World (2011) " There's little flash or surprise in Bier's latest well-shot film, but plenty of substance. " — The Playlist
Posted Aug 15, 2013
D+ 26% Arthur (2011) " Though it has fleeting funny moments, this Russell Brand vehicle is a sputtering Pinto that surprises more when it runs well than when it lurches to a stop." — The Playlist
Posted Aug 15, 2013
D- 15% Something Borrowed (2011) " From its empty soul to its poorly framed shots ready for pan-and-scan conversion, Something Borrowed seems primed to play on Saturday afternoons on E!, sandwiched between reruns of Keeping Up with the Kardashians..." — The Playlist
Posted Aug 15, 2013
C+ 28% Elektra Luxx (2011) " Elektra Luxx has its moments, but the overriding reaction is "Why?" Not only did its predecessor not merit a sequel by anyone's standards, but this is a forgettable film briefly buoyed by lines and energetic performances." — The Playlist
Posted Aug 15, 2013
C+ 70% Limitless (2011) " Paradoxically absorbing, yet cliched and empty, this power-based New York story is a bit of an entertaining thrill ride, probably far more popcorn-engrossing than it deserves to be..." — The Playlist
Posted Aug 15, 2013
C- 46% Wrecked (2011) " ...Wrecked makes its audience suffer along with its amnesiac protagonist. It's often boring and more than occasionally repetitive, dragging like the character's lame leg through the woods..." — The Playlist
Posted Aug 15, 2013
B 74% Norwegian Wood (2012) " Like its source material from Haruki Murakami, this is a beautiful film that exquisitely captures grief and sadness, and unsurprisingly, it probably won't help you if you're suffering from seasonal affective disorder." — The Playlist
Posted Aug 15, 2013
C 29% The Vow (2012) " The film isn't as bad as what it looks like--the Chinatown knockoff equivalent of a Nicholas Sparks movie--but that doesn't mean that those outside the target audience won't find it a painful experience." — The Playlist
Posted Aug 15, 2013
C+ 67% Salmon Fishing in the Yemen (2012) " It's an affable, inoffensive British comedy that just wants you to like it so much that you can't help but snicker behind its back." — The Playlist
Posted Aug 15, 2013
C+ 55% For a Good Time, Call... (2012) " It's a comedy that isn't always funny as it struggles to find the right tone between raunchy and sweet. It celebrates female friendship in a way few movies do, but good intentions don't always make for a good film. " — The Playlist
Posted Aug 15, 2013
B+ 81% Pitch Perfect (2012) " Luckily, Pitch Perfect has just enough flaws to (almost) keep us from making terrible puns around its title, but this fun comedy is good enough to leave an a cappella version of "No Diggity" stuck in your head. For a week." — The Playlist
Posted Aug 15, 2013
D- 41% Rock of Ages (2012) " Rock of Ages will make you want to raise your arms...and then immediately plunge your fingers into your eyeballs for salvation (you can go back for seconds to rescue your ears)." — The Playlist
Posted Aug 15, 2013
C- 5% Paranoia (2013) " At times, there's a lack of understanding about how 20-somethings talk in reality, while many of the film's other lines feel like they could be said by real people, albeit real people who aren't very smart. Or interesting. Or worth listening to. " — The Playlist
Posted Aug 15, 2013
B 68% Wrong (2013) " The whole film feels a bit like a dream after a late-night burrito, leaving you wondering if moments in the film actually happened, particularly when mulling over it the next day. " — The Playlist
Posted Aug 13, 2013
B 77% Venus And Serena (2013) " They've made the sport more interesting, both as black athletes and as women...we left Venus and Serena inspired us to get out in the sun and get moving. And call our siblings." — The Playlist
Posted Aug 13, 2013
C+ 42% Red 2 (2013) " While we applaud the minds behind Red 2 for making a film for adults in a sea of movies for kids and teenage boys, they didn't actually make a good film for adults. " — The Playlist
Posted Aug 13, 2013
B+ 98% Blackfish (2013) " There are few movies that can change the way you see the world in 83 minutes. If Blackfish is seen by enough people, it has the power to affect attendance at SeaWorld." — The Playlist
Posted Aug 13, 2013
C+ 73% Lee Daniels' The Butler (2013) " Lee Daniels' The Butler is the type of film that will likely please viewers who feel that they're doing their civic duty by learning about history and experiencing the trauma of the civil rights movement." — The Playlist
