Movie Reviews Only

T-Meter Title | Year
No Score Yet Britney: For the Record (2008) While it's well-edited and well-produced-and totally unlike anything you'd generally see on MTV-the documentary falls short of the mark because Britney's interview segments don't offer much beyond cringe-worthy moments. - Reality Blurred EDIT

No Score Yet Thrilla in Manila (2008) It fails to answer the intriguing question posed at the beginning about why Ali has been so elevated by history and Frazier mostly forgotten. - Reality Blurred EDIT

A- 87% Grey Gardens (2009) The new film stumbles the most when it recreates moments from the documentary, because even two great actresses just can't compete with people who were not acting, but were instead showing us a part of their incredibly complex selves. - Reality Blurred EDIT

B No Score Yet Pedro (2008) Pedro's life and legacy deserve a tribute, but one that's more consistently strong. - Reality Blurred EDIT

A No Score Yet Expedition Africa (2009) The first episode, at least, gave us just enough context and history balanced with that human drama to make the series a must-watch. - Reality Blurred EDIT

A No Score Yet Out of the Wild: The Alaska Experiment (2009) More importantly, though, there's no doubt the people are struggling to survive, forced to kill game and frequently field dress it, and that makes for watchable TV. - Reality Blurred EDIT

B+ 100% Zombie Girl: The Movie (2009) It's worth watching for the hysterical interstitials alone. - Reality Blurred EDIT

No Score Yet Brick City (2009) The series pulls you in more after it sets up its characters and progresses, and there are a lot of shocking and surprising moments, from fights to a chance meeting that carries a lot of emotional weight. - Reality Blurred EDIT

B No Score Yet By the People: The Election of Barack Obama (2009) That's the bulk of the film and, frankly, it's boring and seems repetitive. - Reality Blurred EDIT

A 92% Joan Rivers: A Piece Of Work (2010) In the documentary (watch the trailer), we see a fascinatingly complex person who's sometimes funny, sometimes awful, always entertaining even when she's unlikeable. - Reality Blurred EDIT

95% The Queen of Versailles (2012) The Queen of Versailles is an exceptional, must-watch film that's better reality TV than most reality television. We need more documentaries-and more reality television-like this. - Reality Blurred EDIT

61% Sharknado 2: The Second One (2014) The smartest part is its cameos. The sequel is packed full of them, and they're clever and witty. - Reality Blurred EDIT

98% Won't You Be My Neighbor? (2018) It's devastating and wonderful. - Reality Blurred EDIT
