Rating T-Meter Title | Year Add Date
1.5/4 17% Bongwater (1998) " It's hard to concur with the screenplay's insistence that there's both pathos and humor to be found in the bong-inhaling, bed-hopping lives of these indolent characters." — TV Guide's Movie Guide

3.5/4 88% Piccadilly (1929) " Dupont's stunning evocation of London's roaring twenties would be of cinematic interest even without Wong; but her sultry presence makes this backstage melodrama a must-see." — TV Guide's Movie Guide
Posted Feb 2, 2011
3/4 74% Things You Can Tell Just By Looking At Her (2000) " An imaginatively constructed soap-opera with a high-powered cast, this film follows several narrative threads, all involving unfulfilled Los Angeles women who find inner peace after learning there are worse things than loneliness." — TV Guide's Movie Guide
Posted Jun 13, 2010
4/4 94% Porco Rosso (Kurenai no buta) (2003) " Animator/fabulist Hayao Miyazaki pays homage to Hollywood's wartime adventure films in this masterwork built around the adventures of a high-flying pig." — TV Guide's Movie Guide
Posted Aug 10, 2009
2/4 0% Killing Me Softly (2003) " Why, you might ask, is master director Chen Kaige wasting his time on such trashy material?" — TV Guide's Movie Guide
Posted Aug 3, 2009
4/4 97% Hotaru no haka (Grave of the Fireflies) (1988) " Takahata's alternately sweeping and intimate animated feature is a moving depiction of the fates of cast-off children who become casualties of war." — TV Guide's Movie Guide
Posted Sep 3, 2008
3.5/4 95% Castle in the Sky (1989) " Unusually detailed animation glides hand in hand with the film's aura of wonderment." — TV Guide's Movie Guide
Posted Sep 3, 2008
3.5/4 89% Neko no Ongaeshi (The Cat Returns) (2002) " Director Morita does an exemplary job of bringing a Japanese graphic novel to the screen." — TV Guide's Movie Guide
Posted Sep 1, 2008
2.5/4 71% Zhong Nan Hai bao biao (The Defender) (The Bodyguard from Beijing) (1994) " Li exudes enough magnetism to make the sexual banter with his fair damsel credible, and enough athletic prowess to simultaneously power this and several other vehicles." — TV Guide's Movie Guide
Posted Jul 28, 2008
2.5/4 —— The Sleeping Dictionary (2003) " If your taste runs to palm fronds and moonlit rendezvous, you might enjoy this impeccably produced bit of kitsch." — TV Guide's Movie Guide
Posted Apr 23, 2008
1.5/4 —— Paranoid (2000) " A film that lacks any real meaning whatsoever." — TV Guide's Movie Guide
Posted Apr 23, 2008
3/4 80% Gods of the Plague (Gotter der Pest) (1977) " This wallow in fatalism is a minor but memorable crime flick." — TV Guide's Movie Guide
Posted Sep 18, 2006
3/4 60% Die Niklashauser Fart (The Niklashausen Journey) (1970) " Twisting a German tradition to his own ends, Fassbinder restyles Bohm's martyrdom as a provocateur's call to arms." — TV Guide's Movie Guide
Posted Sep 18, 2006
2/4 63% Liebe ist Kälter als der Tod (Love Is Colder Than Death) (1969) " This film is too stylized and protracted to interest the average crime-movie fan. It's recommended only for Fassbinder completists." — TV Guide's Movie Guide
