Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
B 43% Race to Witch Mountain (2009) Smarter than it trusts itself to be. ‐ Seattle Post-Intelligencer
Posted Mar 12, 2009
C 12% Pink Panther 2 (2009) They are joined by other typically good actors such as Jean Reno, Jeremy Irons, Lily Tomlin and Alfred Molina. Unfortunately, they're underused. ‐ Seattle Post-Intelligencer

B- 89% Bolt (2008) Whenever a new kids' film comes out, there's always the hope that it'll work for adults, too. Alas, not this time. But the kids will probably like it. ‐ Seattle Post-Intelligencer
Posted Nov 21, 2008
B 40% The Rocker (2008) The plot is ultrapredictable, but under the gentle direction of Peter Cattaneo the movie somehow works. ‐ Seattle Post-Intelligencer
Posted Aug 20, 2008
B- 73% When Did You Last See Your Father? (2008) When it comes down to it, the story of a son who needs validation and his dying father is utterly predictable. ‐ Seattle Post-Intelligencer
Posted Jun 26, 2008
B+ 51% Get Smart (2008) Ultimately, Get Smart succeeds as a tribute to the original series and as a funny movie in its own right. ‐ Seattle Post-Intelligencer
Posted Jun 19, 2008
B 88% Young@Heart (2007) Despite the flaws of the filmmaking, the characters who populate the Young@Heart chorus shine through, inspiring young and old alike. ‐ Seattle Post-Intelligencer
Posted Apr 18, 2008
C- 21% Semi-Pro (2008) Semi-Pro is the perfect name for this movie, because it feels like a half-baked comedy made by semi-professionals. ‐ Seattle Post-Intelligencer
Posted Feb 28, 2008
b 77% Cloverfield (2008) The movie eventually falls into monster movie clichés...If you're into the movie, you won't care. If you're fed up, you'll just laugh. ‐ Seattle Post-Intelligencer
Posted Jan 17, 2008
B+ 86% Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street (2007) Sometimes jaunty, often dark, and very stylized. In other words, it's a perfect fit for director Tim Burton. ‐ Seattle Post-Intelligencer
Posted Dec 21, 2007
B 16% The Perfect Holiday (2007) Either you're in the mood for a sweet and simple Christmas movie or you're not. If you are, then Perfect Holiday should fit the bill nicely. ‐ Seattle Post-Intelligencer
Posted Dec 11, 2007
B- 73% The Mist (2007) The scenes that really work are the ones that take place outside the supermarket, in the beginning and at the end of the film. ‐ Seattle Post-Intelligencer
Posted Nov 20, 2007
C+ 56% This Christmas (2007) It's just harmless and bland and dull and predictable, and sometimes that's worse than a bad movie. ‐ Seattle Post-Intelligencer
Posted Nov 20, 2007
C+ 36% Southland Tales (2007) A few scenes work, but many more don't. Southland Tales may be one feature film that will play better in bits and pieces on the Internet. ‐ Seattle Post-Intelligencer
Posted Nov 15, 2007
B 21% Fred Claus (2007) It may not be a new holiday classic, but at least it's funny. ‐ Seattle Post-Intelligencer
Posted Nov 9, 2007
B- 51% Bee Movie (2007) The riskiest move Seinfeld made was to create an unlikable protagonist who is wrong every step of the way, but treat him like a hero. ‐ Seattle Post-Intelligencer
Posted Nov 1, 2007
C+ 51% 30 Days of Night (2007) With such a good concept for a vampire movie, it's hard to believe it turned out to be this boring. ‐ Seattle Post-Intelligencer
Posted Oct 18, 2007
C- 14% The Ten Commandments (2007) This new version of the story of Moses is a huge step backward for theatrical CG animation, or any animation for that matter. ‐ Seattle Post-Intelligencer
Posted Oct 18, 2007
C 41% December Boys (2007) Sometimes the hardest movies to review are the ones that are middle-of-the-road, bland and completely uninspiring, movies like December Boys. ‐ Seattle Post-Intelligencer
Posted Sep 27, 2007
B 59% Hannah Takes the Stairs (2007) Performances help raise Hannah Takes the Stairs above the realm of self-indulgent cinema to something worth seeing. ‐ Seattle Post-Intelligencer
Posted Sep 27, 2007
B+ 98% The Devil Came on Horseback (2007) Directors Ricki Stern and Anne Sundberg have found an impressive protagonist in Steidle, but they would have done better to expand the scope of the documentary beyond his personal recollections. ‐ Seattle Post-Intelligencer
Posted Sep 20, 2007
C+ 37% Sydney White (2007) Although Bynes exudes a devil-may-care attitude that is fun to watch, the formulaic movie ultimately falls apart around her. ‐ Seattle Post-Intelligencer
Posted Sep 20, 2007
B- 43% The Brave One (2007) Jodie Foster and director Neil Jordan shift the genre to the murky left, where right and wrong are not so black and white. ‐ Seattle Post-Intelligencer
Posted Sep 14, 2007
C 67% Shoot 'Em Up (2007) In the end, you care about the characters on screen as much as you do for those in video games, which is not at all. ‐ Seattle Post-Intelligencer
Posted Sep 6, 2007
B 23% Balls of Fury (2007) The reason Balls of Fury works as well as it does, aside from its low aspirations, is because of the charm of Fogler in the lead. ‐ Seattle Post-Intelligencer
Posted Aug 29, 2007
65% Sabrina (1995) Has a level of complexity rare in contemporary Hollywood.‐
Posted Jan 1, 2000
44% Multiplicity (1996) I recommend this to anyone who wants to see a solipsistic comedy about the darker side of marriage.‐
Posted Jan 1, 2000
80% The White Balloon (Badkonake sefid) (1995) Raziah takes everything at face value, forcing us to look again at people and situations we would immediately judge as good or bad -- reason enough to see this film.‐
Posted Jan 1, 2000
80% Seven (Se7en) (1995) Well worth a look.‐
Posted Jan 1, 2000
88% The Usual Suspects (1995) After I first saw the film, I recommended it to people as an entertaining and commercial crime thriller; a standard story done very well. And then I saw it again. The movie is so much better the second time.‐
Posted Jan 1, 2000
86% Heat (1995) The cop/ crime stuff that makes up the bulk of the movie is well thought out and well directed.‐
