T-Meter Title | Year
83% Tonite Let's All Make Love in London (1967) Whitehead's focus-pulling, dolly-bird-at-Biba documentary on Swinging London scores low on technique but fields fascinating interviews with the trend-setters of the era. - Time Out EDIT

74% Jack & Sarah (1996) As English as it gets, this romantic comedy about a one-parent family is not without a modest charm. - Time Out EDIT
Read More | Posted Sep 23, 2006
89% The Last Emperor (1987) John Lone is superb as the sad mediocrity; and if spectacle finally triumphs over sympathy, it is not without a decent struggle. - Time Out EDIT

98% 8 1/2 (1963) Amiably spiking all criticism through a gloomy scriptwriter mouthpiece, Fellini pulls a multitude of rabbits out of the showman's hat. - Time Out EDIT

91% Parenthood (1989) Steve Martin's manically over-conscientious dad steals the film, whether chewing the pitch as his small son fumbles at baseball, or entertaining a kids' party as an unconvincing cowboy. - Time Out EDIT

97% Lawrence of Arabia (1962) The passage of time has only proved how difficult it is to run ideas, history, characterisation and landscape in harness on this sort of scale. - Time Out EDIT
Read More | Posted Jun 24, 2006
73% The Living Daylights (1987) Confused plot and digressive globe trotting notwithstanding, the best Bond in years. - Time Out EDIT
Read More | Posted Jun 24, 2006
76% The Cotton Club (1984) The narrative is a mess despite the simplistic twinning of tales, and -- worse yet -- keeps interrupting the heart-stopping hoofing. - Time Out EDIT

83% Casualties of War (1989) Casualties of War is dull. - Time Out EDIT

34% Home Alone 2: Lost in New York (1992) [Kevin's] battle with the burglars -- surely the point of these flicks -- mistakes the pain threshold for hilarity. - Time Out EDIT

93% You Can't Take It With You (1938) The cast is appealing, particularly Stewart and Arthur, but it's not enough. - Time Out EDIT
Read More | Posted Feb 9, 2006
89% Rain Man (1988) There is no story, no motor, and given the nature of the premise, nothing much can happen. - Time Out EDIT
Read More | Posted Feb 9, 2006
29% Hook (1991) The story is largely becalmed so that we can wallow in the production values. The sets are variable but often unpleasant on the eye. - Time Out EDIT
Read More | Posted Feb 9, 2006
87% Pee-wee's Big Adventure (1985) Fed by comic tributaries perhaps, but Pee-Wee Herman comes over as a delightful original. - Time Out EDIT
Read More | Posted Feb 9, 2006
94% Midnight Run (1988) That old formula, handcuffed captor and captive who become buddies on the run, gets an injection of new life from the playing of the cast. - Time Out EDIT
Read More | Posted Feb 9, 2006
72% 3 Hommes et un Couffin (Three Men and a Cradle) (1985) Noisy, and not short of unison waddling walks. - Time Out EDIT
Read More | Posted Feb 9, 2006
83% The Untouchables (1987) The narrative thunders to its conclusion like a locomotive. - Time Out EDIT
Read More | Posted Feb 9, 2006
19% Blame It on the Bellboy (1992) [A] leaden farce. - Time Out EDIT
Read More | Posted Feb 9, 2006
76% Three Men and a Baby (3 Men and a Baby) (1987) It is shamelessly sentimental, and could well send the hardboiled home to kick the cat. - Time Out EDIT
Read More | Posted Feb 9, 2006
66% Frankie & Johnny (1991) Marshall directs as if Marty had never happened. - Time Out EDIT
Read More | Posted Jan 26, 2006
97% Babe (1995) Charming, eccentric and very amusing. - Time Out EDIT
Read More | Posted Jan 26, 2006
8% Only the Strong (1993) A paean to the Brazilian martial art of capoeira harks back to those break-dancing quickies. - Time Out EDIT
Read More | Posted Jan 26, 2006
91% No Way Out (1987) A very convincing nightmare, and if Hackman gives too rounded a performance to approach the omniscient evil of Laughton's original, Patton assumes the mantle as Brice's henchman, while Costner confirms his arrival as a star. - Time Out EDIT

4% Wired (1989) Perhaps the worst thing about Wired is that it is totally unfunny. - Time Out EDIT
