Rating T-Meter Title | Year Add Date
B 78% Burn After Reading (2008) " As a chance to watch a gaggle of Serious Actors ham it up in an intricately plotted (though easy to follow) yarn, it's a well-executed diversion." — Dallas Morning News
Posted Sep 12, 2008
B 92% U2 3D (2007) " A glasses-required experiment that pushes the boundaries of the concert doc yet keeps one foot planted in the conventional concrete. Rarely has a film attained such moments of exhilaration while also leaving the viewer with some level of disappointment." — Dallas Morning News
Posted Jan 22, 2008
B+ 96% Ratatouille (2007) " Pixar, the undisputed heavyweight champion of the animation world, retains the title with this winning tale." — Dallas Morning News

A- 70% Cowboy Del Amor (2006) " This charming documentary follows Ivan Thompson, the self-proclaimed 'Cowboy Cupid,' as he finds Mexican brides for American men who feel they've exhausted their options on their side of the border." — Dallas Morning News
Posted Mar 2, 2006
C- 40% The Second Chance (2006) " Sure, there are lots of positive messages about following your calling and seeing how others live, but that message would better resonate with the audience if the story wasn't so bland." — Dallas Morning News
Posted Feb 16, 2006
C 19% Firewall (2006) " Do Clear and Present Danger or Air Force One ring a bell? If not, get thee to Blockbuster, as those films follow a similar outline to greater effect than does Firewall." — Dallas Morning News
Posted Feb 9, 2006
B 40% End of the Spear (2006) " Under Jim Hanon's direction, the film manages to get its point across without coming off as heavy-handed or overtly religious." — Dallas Morning News
Posted Jan 19, 2006
D+ 38% Margaret Cho: Assassin (2005) " Ms. Cho's commentaries come across as mere rants, lacking the fresh comedic spin necessary to carry a concert film." — Dallas Morning News
