Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
3.5/5 69% The Hundred-Foot Journey (2014) "The 100 Foot Journey" is worth more than a deceptively uncomplicated a first glance; it contains flavorful and complex layers upon further examination.‐ Skewed and Reviewed

3.5/5 85% 22 Jump Street (2014) From the opening scene to the ending credits, "22 Jump Street" is as ridiculous as expected but still a bro lotta fun.‐ Skewed and Reviewed

4.5/5 78% The Wolf of Wall Street (2013) Not the tale of a good guy gone bad, "The Wolf of Wall Street" is the story of a bad guy gone even worse. ‐ Skewed and Reviewed

3.5/5 67% Lawless (2012) While not as impressive as expected, the slow but steady story and complex visceral nature of "Lawless", make it a film that is worth the price of a ticket, for anyone who can make it through the squeamish bits.‐ Skewed and Reviewed

4.5/5 45% To Rome with Love (2012) While I will avoid the pretentious research and amplified hyper analysis that follows Woody Allen, I do want to make one point clear; this is a film that anyone, regardless of interest in film study, is apt to enjoy.‐ Skewed and Reviewed

4/5 41% Tonight You're Mine (2012) "Tonight You're Mine" provides audiences with characters who are more engaging, slightly darker, and quickly established as too cool to care what their critics think.‐ Skewed and Reviewed

3.5/5 78% Jeff Who Lives at Home (2012) The characters are nervous, inexperienced, and closed off but the tale that defines "Jeff, Who Lives at Home" is entirely relatable. The film is not exactly enchanting but it was significantly better than I had originally anticipated.‐ Skewed and Reviewed

4/5 69% Footloose (2011) The new "Footloose" still has less dancing then you want from a film entirely about dance, but when it does occur the style is much more diverse, ranging from hip hop to that famous "Footloose" country.‐ Skewed and Reviewed

2/5 41% Straw Dogs (2011) Unbalanced, vapid, and pointless as a thriller "Straw Dogs" falls prey to the unnecessary remake trap. ‐ Skewed and Reviewed

2/5 44% 30 Minutes or Less (2011) Despite some laughs, 30 Minutes Fails to Deliver.‐ Skewed and Reviewed

3/5 44% Bad Teacher (2011) Brimming with vulgar language and shockingly bold comedic scene choices "Bad Teacher" will surely offend bashful audiences. Still, the film is funnier than "There's Something About Mary" and the recently disappointing "The Hangover: Part II".‐ Skewed and Reviewed

2.5/5 11% Red Riding Hood (2011) The film is not missing any major components but the lack of originality is a fatal flaw that impacts the entire tale. The scary moments are not scary. The intrigue lacks potency. And the romantic triangle fails to generate the intended drama. ‐ Skewed and Reviewed

2/5 20% Beastly (2011) Not unlike a B-movie in quality and dialogue yet with an impressive budget, an Olsen sister, and some serious face tattoos, "Beastly" is simply cheesy. ‐ Skewed and Reviewed

3.5/5 90% The Fighter (2010) Unlike the majority of sports stories turned into film The Fighter tackles a much more realistic portrayal of both the sport and the human complexities of the characters involved. ‐ Skewed and Reviewed

2/5 13% Yogi Bear (2010) For those looking for the Yogi Bear of their youth, the film remake will prove to be a less than an acceptable substitute for the original television show‐ Skewed and Reviewed

3.5/5 56% Morning Glory (2010) Mashed firmly between an decent episode of the Mary Tyler Moore show and the Dolly Parton classic "9 to 5", Morning Glory is a one-of-a-kind take on a story that is increasingly all too familiar.‐ Skewed and Reviewed

4/5 51% The Switch (2010) The Switch" is a very layered film; both human and well written while at the same time sharply funny.‐ Skewed and Reviewed

4.5/5 71% Machete (2010) Moreover, it is not a stretch to say that this film abruptly addresses some significant stereotypes. In fact Machete doesn't just confront these issues, it wields a large blade of sarcasm in their direction.‐ Skewed and Reviewed
