Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
A 100% O.J.: Made in America (2016) Though Simpson himself only speaks through archival news footage and occasional audio recordings, Edelman paints a rich, three-dimensional, tragic portrait of the man.‐ HitFix

B+ 80% 7 Days in Hell (2015) Quick, easy, filthy, stupid, funny. You don't need to know anything more. ‐ HitFix

0% The Leisure Class (2015) It's insubstantial, clumsy, and ineffective as either comedy or drama.‐ HitFix

A- 93% Skyfall (2012) Skyfall easily moves into the top 5 of Bond movies ever, maybe even the top 3 with From Russia With Love and Casino Royale.‐ HitFix

B 100% Toy Story That Time Forgot (2014) It's still fun, still sweet, and still a pleasure to hear Tom Hanks, Tim Allen, Wallace Shawn and the gang voice these characters, but I checked my watch several times and would have probably preferred it at something closer to Toy Story Toons length. ‐ HitFix

C+ 30% Grumpy Cat's Worst Christmas Ever (2014) [It] has some funny lines from Plaza while occasionally inserting Grumpy Cat into ridiculous situations, but is mostly trying to do what it can within the limitations of its budget, its network and its leading feline. ‐ HitFix

B 94% The Normal Heart (2014) The good in Normal Heart outweighs the bad, which isn't always the case with Murphy's work. It's an important story packed with vivid individual moments, but with this material and these actors, it feels like it could be so much more than what it is.‐ HitFix

A- 80% Veronica Mars (2014) The film doesn't just feel like a double-length episode of the series. The scope feels bigger, the look is richer, and the focus on who Veronica is and why she's so good at this job goes much deeper than the show usually did.‐ HitFix

C 29% Ghost Shark (2013) There is a peak to the insanity and it arrives too soon (and probably doesn't rise high enough). ‐ HitFix

C- 90% Scott Turow's Innocent (2011) Simultaneously too familiar (by rehashing the plot of the first film) and not familiar enough (by depending on the audience to remember and care about material from two decades ago).‐ HitFix

B- 60% Mockingbird Lane (2012) I'd put the Mockingbird Lane pilot more in line with the others I found interesting but didn't want to watch every week.‐ HitFix

B 55% Clear History (2013) The movie also feels at time like an extended all-star jam episode of Curb. Those are, perhaps not coincidentally, the best, and funniest parts of Clear History. ‐ HitFix

82% Sharknado (2013) The title and premise of this one was so ludicrous that it became a draw for me and other looky-lous, and it gave us exactly what we wanted: something unapologetically dumb and cheap and outrageous to laugh at (and, occasionally, with).‐ HitFix

A 95% Behind the Candelabra (2013) It's rare that I hate an HBO movie, but it's been a long time since I loved one. Until now. ‐ HitFix

A- No Score Yet This is an absolute: Top of the Lake is great.‐ HitFix

100% 24: Redemption (2008) Redemption didn't so much whet my appetite for the show's full-time return in January as it did remind me of the many problems I had with it the last time it was on the air.‐ Newark Star-Ledger

F 91% Joan Rivers: A Piece Of Work (2010) Quote not available.‐ HitFix

B+ 88% Crossfire Hurricane (2012) If Crossfire Hurricane doesn't offer much that's new, or tell a spellbinding story along the way, it still vividly captures how they became legends in the first place.‐ HitFix

B+ 86% George Harrison: Living In The Material World (2011) Scorsese makes it into something more than a three-plus hour rehash of an oft-told tale.‐ HitFix

66% Game Change (2012) Game Change is a big disappointment, a broadside at a very big target, and a waste of some impressive talent in front of and behind the camera.‐ HitFix
