Rating T-Meter Title | Year Add Date
14% Let's Be Cops (2014) " Johnson and Wayans have a potential buddy future, but "Let's Be Cops" is not the strongest vehicle to get them there." — Philadelphia Daily News
Posted Aug 13, 2014
C+ 67% Matador: Season 1 (TV, 2014) " The show is weighed down by clunky dialogue and a lead who was not particularly dazzling in the initial episode sent out to critics. Luna's Bravo lacks that James Bond je ne sais quoi, even if he's a reluctant participant in his own plot. " — AV Club
Posted Jul 17, 2014
B 77% You're the Worst: Season 1 (TV, 2014) " You're The Worst has a strong central team in Cash and Geere. " — AV Club
Posted Jul 17, 2014
B+ 56% Married: Season 1 (TV, 2014) " Faxon's on-screen presence has largely been confined to playing slacker-idiots with enough ego that they don't see anything wrong with their behavior, and he's quite good at it. Married gives the actor the opportunity to branch out. " — AV Club
Posted Jul 17, 2014
B 76% Playing House: Season 1 (TV, 2014) " The premise of Playing House -- female friendship as a constructed family writ large -- allows for a depth not often seen on a USA. " — AV Club
Posted Apr 28, 2014
C- 71% Faking It: Season 1 (TV, 2014) " A bland high school comedy, it's as empty a gesture as two drunk, straight girls grasping for attention by making out in front of a group of hollering guys. " — AV Club
Posted Apr 21, 2014
C 42% Bitten: Season 1 (TV, 2014) " The presentation of mythology and backstory, such an important aspect of a show like Bitten, is handled in a laughably inelegant way. " — AV Club
Posted Jan 13, 2014
B 52% Hello Ladies: Season 1 (TV, 2013-2014) " This is funny and awkward in a way that has served Merchant throughout his career, but it's not much more than that. " — AV Club
Posted Sep 30, 2013
2/4 14% Baggage Claim (2013) " "Baggage Claim" isn't so much a movie as it is a pastiche of rom-com cliches." — Philadelphia Daily News
Posted Sep 27, 2013
B- 56% The Goldbergs: Season 1 (TV, 2013-2014) " The Goldbergs is far from terrible -- it just needs to learn how to mix the quirky dysfunction with the heartwarming moments in the style of shows like Malcolm In The Middle or Raising Hope. " — AV Club
Posted Sep 23, 2013
B+ 88% Brooklyn Nine-Nine: Season 1 (TV, 2013-2014) " Creators Michael Schur and Dan Goor are able to balance a slap-sticky light-heartedness with workplace fodder that feels of a piece with some of The Office's stronger seasons and the loving homage inherent in Hot Fuzz. " — AV Club
Posted Sep 18, 2013
B 67% Devious Maids: Season 1 (TV, 2013) " Strip away the racial implications inherent in the show's premise, and Devious Maids is a fun little sudser fill with talented women. " — AV Club
Posted Jun 23, 2013
2/4 —— Skatopia: 88 Acres of Anarchy (2011) " There are only so many scenes I want to watch of other people partying and destroying stuff." — Philadelphia Daily News
Posted Nov 16, 2012
28% Backwards (2012) " Backwards" is obvious at times, but what makes it stand out are the details that Thomas imbues in her character." — Philadelphia Daily News
Posted Oct 11, 2012
2.5/4 81% Pitch Perfect (2012) " "Pitch Perfect" has some legitimately funny moments." — Philadelphia Daily News
Posted Sep 27, 2012
B+ 74% Ben and Kate: Season 1 (TV, 2012-2013) " For a show like Ben And Kate, it's less important to me that I'm hit with laugh line upon laugh line because I want to continue to be with these characters and see them progress. " — AV Club
Posted Sep 25, 2012
2.5/4 55% For a Good Time, Call... (2012) " A shallow movie with nothing new besides than the exalatation of the bonds of female friendship." — Philadelphia Daily News
Posted Sep 6, 2012
3.5/4 89% Compliance (2012) " Zobel makes his setting feel immediate and real, from the gum-smacking employees to the dowdy manager who just wants to do the right thing." — Philadelphia Daily News
Posted Aug 23, 2012
1/4 8% The Babymakers (2012) " "The Babymakers" has a stronger narrative arc than Broken Lizard's previous films, but that doesn't better serve the gross-out sight gags or the flat one-liners." — Philadelphia Daily News
Posted Aug 2, 2012
2/4 42% Step Up Revolution (2012) " "Step Up Revolution" is the series' "Live Free or Die Hard": There are more explosions and the stakes are laughably higher." — Philadelphia Daily News
Posted Jul 26, 2012
2.5/4 75% Mozart's Sister (2011) " Nannerl is clearly a woman repressed, but Feret gives this potentially great woman no life, no spark." — Philadelphia Daily News
Posted Nov 3, 2011
C+ 46% The Mighty Macs (2011) " Instead of breaking new ground, "The Mighty Macs" revels in clich├ęs, made apparent by the musical score of swelling strings, forcing unearned emotional resonance that the movie can't organically create." — Philadelphia Daily News
Posted Oct 20, 2011
B- 71% Footloose (2011) " Some things never change: The best part of "Footloose" is the dancing." — Philadelphia Daily News
Posted Oct 13, 2011
B 62% Gun Hill Road (2011) " It's most powerful in its quiet moments that deal with the familial dynamics of a family torn apart by incarceration." — Philadelphia Daily News
Posted Sep 15, 2011
B+ 80% Life in a Day (2011) " What makes "Life in a Day" so compelling is how completely ordinary it is. There are no YouTube antics, no one is putting on a show. It's simply a collection of how people decided to spend one July day." — Philadelphia Daily News
Posted Aug 5, 2011
A- 98% Project Nim (2011) " As Nim's story turns from scientifically compelling to tragic, Marsh is able to craft a drama that appeals even to those who aren't exactly card-carrying members of PETA." — Philadelphia Daily News
Posted Jul 21, 2011
B- 78% Page One: Inside the New York Times (2011) " In times of stormy prognostications all around the news industry, "Page One" is a reminder of what a newspaper can do, and hopefully will continue doing in the future." — Philadelphia Daily News
Posted Jun 30, 2011
B+ 89% Buck (2011) " Brannaman has firsthand experience with the cycle of abuse and his backstory elevates "Buck" from simple profile to something deeper and more heartfelt." — Philadelphia Daily News
Posted Jun 23, 2011
C+ 60% Yves Saint Laurent - L'amour fou (2011) " "L'Amour Fou" sometimes trudges along with little insight into the genius of Saint Laurent." — Philadelphia Daily News
Posted May 27, 2011
B 43% Cracks (2011) " Temple shines as Di. Her round face and large eyes convey almost as much as her dialogue." — Philadelphia Daily News
Posted May 12, 2011
B 54% Hesher (2011) " As director Spencer Susser's movie unfolds, the heart reveals itself to be less and less sentimental." — Philadelphia Daily News
Posted May 12, 2011
B 83% The Double Hour (2011) " Holding "The Double Hour" together are the performances of Rappoport and Timi. They ground the movie's central romance in realism." — Philadelphia Daily News
Posted Apr 29, 2011
C- 17% Miral (2011) " "Miral" gives no real evidence to support why this particular story deserves screen time." — Philadelphia Daily News
Posted Apr 1, 2011
C+ 64% Justin Bieber: Never Say Never (2011) " No one is looking for a hard-hitting expose on Bieber's life, but it would be nice to at least hear the guy speak." — Philadelphia Daily News
Posted Feb 10, 2011
B+ 82% Night Catches Us (2010) " It's either a testament to David Tumblety's cinematography or a knock to Philly that the city looks gray and gritty, perfect for the '70s milieu of locally-based writer-director Tanya Hamilton's film." — Philadelphia Daily News
