Rating T-Meter Title | Year Add Date
2/4 96% Life Itself (2014) " To be certain, some of the footage interpolated here is entertaining, but this has to count as a missed opportunity." — TV Guide's Movie Guide
Posted Jul 6, 2014
2/4 54% Jersey Boys (2014) " The Four Seasons' tunes, many of them bubblegummy, up-tempo, and carefree, are at odds with the pseudo-Cassavetes emotional brutality of the characters' interactions." — TV Guide's Movie Guide
Posted Jun 20, 2014
3.5/4 87% Under the Skin (2014) " Writer/director Jonathan Glazer's art-house sci-fi allegory Under the Skin slips up on the viewer so surreptitiously that the pull of its final 30 minutes comes as a bit of a shock." — TV Guide's Movie Guide
Posted May 15, 2014
4/4 87% Like Father, Like Son (2014) " This is a profound and remarkable work, and like Still Walking, it reasserts Koreeda's place among the ranks of the world's greatest living directors." — TV Guide's Movie Guide
Posted Apr 16, 2014
3/4 35% Salinger (2013) " An emotionally stirring and affecting work, albeit a flawed one." — TV Guide's Movie Guide
Posted Jan 29, 2014
3.5/4 95% War Witch (2013) " The picture is far and away most effective in its sequences of quiet lyricism." — TV Guide's Movie Guide
Posted Dec 17, 2013
4/4 93% All Is Lost (2013) " The movie has the feel of a beautifully conceived and elegantly composed short story with a remarkable and consistently surprising degree of emotional resonance." — TV Guide's Movie Guide
Posted Dec 16, 2013
4/4 56% Inch'Allah (2013) " This beautifully and cunningly crafted motion picture is long overdue." — TV Guide's Movie Guide
Posted Aug 26, 2013
2.5/4 54% Lovelace (2013) " Enough of this film works to merit a moderate recommendation, though the next time that Friedman and Epstein take on such a challenging character... they should consider gauging the structure of their script more carefully." — TV Guide's Movie Guide
Posted Aug 9, 2013
2/4 93% The Spectacular Now (2013) " The film eventually begins to work against itself and erodes the goodwill that it had earned." — TV Guide's Movie Guide
Posted Aug 2, 2013
4/4 93% We Steal Secrets: The Story Of Wikileaks (2013) " The movie is so beautifully crafted and realized that it might well be called flawless." — TV Guide's Movie Guide
Posted May 24, 2013
1.5/4 73% Augustine (2013) " It would be fascinating to know what the writer/director intended here, because the material is so hopelessly muddled." — TV Guide's Movie Guide
Posted May 17, 2013
3.5/4 60% Kiss Of The Damned (2013) " A rare treat, especially for those who like to see grindhouse-oriented subject matter done with intelligence and substance." — TV Guide's Movie Guide
Posted May 3, 2013
2.5/4 72% Chicken with Plums (2012) " On a scene-by-scene basis, much of Chicken With Plums delivers satisfactorily, but it adds up to much less than the sum of its many parts." — TV Guide's Movie Guide
Posted Apr 14, 2013
3/4 81% Like Someone in Love (2013) " It would be difficult to overstate the success of the bulk of this picture. Throughout, we get the bravura technique that we look forward to in a Kiarostami film." — TV Guide's Movie Guide
Posted Mar 15, 2013
3.5/4 98% The Island President (2012) " One only hopes that the documentary will help advance Nasheed's mission and inspire others to join arms out of shared ecological concern." — TV Guide's Movie Guide
Posted Jan 7, 2013
4/4 98% The Invisible War (2012) " The film delivers a sledgehammer blow to the audience, with an experience every bit as shattering and overwhelming as one might infer from the subject matter." — TV Guide's Movie Guide
Posted Jan 7, 2013
2/4 68% Wuthering Heights (2012) " One can admire the sublimity of Arnold's aesthetic compositions and framing, as well as the generally solid acting from a nonprofessional cast, but that's to no avail when the movie misses its emotional targets." — TV Guide's Movie Guide
Posted Oct 5, 2012
3.5/4 90% Portrait of Wally (2012) " As Shea's film approaches its conclusion, a wonderful and unexpected sense of empathy suddenly materializes." — TV Guide's Movie Guide
Posted May 29, 2012
3/4 90% Winnie the Pooh (2011) " It's refreshing and invigorating to watch a new animated picture where we can still see the penciled-in sketches of the characters' eyebrows and wind-ruffled clothing." — TV Guide's Movie Guide
Posted Jan 3, 2012
12% In My Sleep (2010) " The ludicrousness of the erotic scenes, such as the masseuse client sequence, points to the film's complete disconnectedness from any sort of recognizable reality." — All Movie Guide
