Rating T-Meter Title | Year Add Date
79% Seven (Se7en) (1995) " The two actors misfire here: Freeman is so low-key he's almost drowsy, and Pitt jumps around like a chihuahua to no effect. It doesn't help that the sound mix is so murky that much of their dialogue sinks into the murk." — South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Posted Mar 25, 2014
88% Titanic (2012) " Titanic is an awesome achievement, a traditional Hollywood epic that dazzles your eyes, breaks your heart and shivers your soul." — South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Posted Feb 25, 2014
75% Ransom (1996) " Ransom benefits handsomely from a story that remains compellingly believable, even as the plot twists become more baroque. Be warned, though, that Ransom is a violent film, with bloody shootouts that will not be easy to watch." — South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Posted Jan 22, 2014
83% The English Patient (1996) " The English Patient's considerable pleasures are chiefly aesthetic, not emotional." — South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Posted Jan 6, 2014
89% Trainspotting (1996) " A grimy bolt of celluloid lightning unspooling at 24 crackling frames a second, this episodic tale of smart-aleck Scottish lads on heroin is the year's most exciting film -- and surely its most controversial." — South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Posted Jun 26, 2013
6% Kazaam (1996) " Good ol' Shaq, the big happy galoot, makes you smile just by showing up. Because of him, Kazaam is a minimal kid-pleaser, but because the trailers made us dream of genie, we can't help being disappointed when we get a turbaned social worker." — South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Posted May 29, 2013
3% Speed 2 - Cruise Control (1997) " The wind goes out of this tub's sails long before it reaches port." — South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Posted May 28, 2013
6% Solo (1996) " Solo contains the usual shoot-'em-ups, an undistinguished performance from Van Peebles, plus lots of crummy dialogue." — South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Posted May 28, 2013
50% Life (1999) " This prison dramedy's muddled, episodic script seems to have gone on a hunger strike for humor!" — New York Post
Posted Jan 1, 2000
4/4 88% American Beauty (1999) " American Beauty is a flat-out masterpiece, surely the best movie of the year; indeed, an all-time classic." — New York Post
Posted Jan 1, 2000
40% Big Daddy (1999) " Big Daddy is easily the laziest, most slapdash and altogether crummy picture Sandler's done to date." — New York Post
Posted Jan 1, 2000
19% Love Stinks (1999) " Jeff Franklin's idea of cutting-edge comedy writing runs to the kind of vulgar, unfunny shtick that puts the gag in 'gag.'" — New York Post
Posted Jan 1, 2000
33% The Love Letter (1999) " Capshaw is cold and charmless!" — New York Post
Posted Jan 1, 2000
3/4 67% Stir of Echoes (1999) " Stir of Echoes is studded with potent fright scenes and built on a rock-solid performance by the ever - dependable Kevin Bacon." — New York Post
Posted Jan 1, 2000
83% Notting Hill (1999) " Notting Hill is about as enchanting as movies get these days!" — New York Post
Posted Jan 1, 2000
2.5/4 77% Eyes Wide Shut (1999) " Quite good in parts and always dazzling to the eye but a letdown all the same." — New York Post
Posted Jan 1, 2000
51% Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me (1999) " Amusing but ultimately disappointing." — New York Post
Posted Jan 1, 2000
22% The General's Daughter (1999) " So nonsensical and asinine that it would take all 14,000 miles of cable holding up the Brooklyn Bridge to suspend your disbelief." — New York Post
Posted Jan 1, 2000
3/4 67% The Thomas Crown Affair (1999) " Renee Russo is an absolute knockout!" — New York Post
Posted Jan 1, 2000
2/4 57% Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace (1999) " Everything about this film is so mechanical you wonder if it was written, directed and acted by 'droids.'" — New York Post
Posted Jan 1, 2000
1.5/4 22% Stigmata (1999) " The story makes increasingly little sense as it unspools!" — New York Post
Posted Jan 1, 2000
87% The Matrix (1999) " A more technically dazzling synthesis of action choreography and cutting-edge computer graphics has not been seen since James Cameron's T2." — New York Post
Posted Jan 1, 2000
2/4 46% Runaway Bride (1999) " A runaway bore!" — New York Post
Posted Jan 1, 2000
56% The Hi-Lo Country (1998) " Woody Harrelson's surprisingly credible, yippie-ki-yay performance as the last of the old-time cowboys is the only reason - but just reason enough - to see THE HI-LO COUNTRY." — New York Post
Posted Jan 1, 2000
3.5/4 85% The Sixth Sense (1999) " Masterfully plotted, a superb film!" — New York Post
Posted Jan 1, 2000
50% Summer of Sam (1999) " A ragged mess that only rarely connects with its audience or with a point." — New York Post
Posted Jan 1, 2000
1/4 5% Universal Soldier - The Return (1999) " The Muscles from Brussels mouths dialogue that wouldn't challenge a bivalve - and in an accent that makes Stallone sound like a master of elocution." — New York Post
Posted Jan 1, 2000
2/4 11% Chill Factor (1999) " A waste of time and talent!" — New York Post
Posted Jan 1, 2000
92% Go (1999) " Flat-out the best thing I've seen all year!" — New York Post
Posted Jan 1, 2000
20% Wild Wild West (1999) " WILD Wild West is the movie that stole Will Smith's mojo!" — New York Post
Posted Jan 1, 2000
63% Muppets From Space (1999) " Draggy and awfully thin!" — New York Post
Posted Jan 1, 2000
60% Mystery Men (1999) " This year's The Avengers." — New York Post
Posted Jan 1, 2000
81% South Park: Bigger, Longer and Uncut (1999) " The quite clever satirical moments in this crudely animated filth fest, though, are not remotely worth being dragged through the cinematic sewer." — New York Post
Posted Jan 1, 2000
2.5/4 97% The Iron Giant (1999) " The writing is vivid and bright, the voicing accomplished, and the storytelling emotionally satisfying." — New York Post
Posted Jan 1, 2000
3/4 45% Mickey Blue Eyes (1999) " Grant is always a pleasure to watch, and Caan looks like he's having the time of his life!" — New York Post
Posted Jan 1, 2000
17% The Haunting (1999) " Clumsy, bloated and wretchedly overdone!" — New York Post
Posted Jan 1, 2000
88% Tarzan (1999) " Disney's Tarzan is not only the summer's most thrilling mainstream movie so far, it's also the best animated feature the studio has put out since The Lion King." — New York Post
Posted Jan 1, 2000
9% Virus (1999) " Completely predictable and largely fright-free!" — New York Post
Posted Jan 1, 2000
2.5/4 52% The Muse (1999) " It's good for some sterling one-liners and a generous handful of sparkling scenes, but after a strong, peppery start, the movie collapses into bland mush for want of anything interesting to say." — New York Post
