Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
3/5 60% Hercules (2014) About as good as it can get for this type of picture. It's utter tosh, but impossible not to enjoy. ‐ Radio Times

3/5 18% Transformers: Age of Extinction (2014) The cinematic equivalent of being repeatedly hit over the head with a food mixer. ‐ Radio Times

1.5/4 60% The Grand Seduction (2014) Like many films that contrast the simplicity of a rural community against the confusion of city life, The Grand Seduction exhibits a patriarchal, xenophobic attitude. ‐ Slant Magazine

.5/4 29% Bad Johnson (2014) Huck Botko's film asks us to laugh at, even revel in, the misadventures of womanizing men, even as it condemns them for their behavior. ‐ Slant Magazine

3/4 100% Youth (2015) Tom Shoval, who eschews stylistic flourishes in order to focus on character, leaves the film's heavy lifting to the actors and his own screenplay. ‐ Slant Magazine

3.5/4 100% Big Men (2014) Rachel Boynton remarkably reveals just how much influence corporate interests have on public wellbeing, and how rarely Ghanaians are part of any debate. ‐ Slant Magazine

2.5/4 28% 3 Days To Kill (2014) McG may strip down his approach and serve up a variety of slick, well-paced shoot-outs and car chases, but his technical skill can't quite overcome the story's lazy sense of humor and incomprehensible account of international espionage. ‐ Slant Magazine

3.5/4 100% Manila In The Claws Of Light (1975) For Brocka and his characters, Manila is a libertarian dystopia, where poverty breeds its own predators and victims as the city's poor grasp for the little wealth that hasn't yet been distributed. ‐ Slant Magazine

3/4 100% When I Saw You (2012) Like Antoine Doinel in The 400 Blows, Tarek has a way of using defiance and sarcasm to make himself seem smarter than any ostensible authority figure. ‐ Slant Magazine
Posted Jan 17, 2014
2/4 59% Detour (2013) In comparison to its superior predecessors, Detour's redemption plot feels banal and slight. ‐ Slant Magazine
