Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
79% Rudyard Kipling's The Jungle Book (1994) "Anyone familiar with Rudyard Kipling's stories will be forgiven for spending the first half of Rudyard Kipling's Jungle Book squirming with outrage and confusion. " ‐ South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Posted Apr 15, 2016
80% While You Were Sleeping (1995) "This setup is ludicrous, but actually it's the most credible thing in this whole sorry, dishonest film. " ‐ South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Posted Dec 4, 2013
89% Misery (1990) "Misery should be a big hit. It deserves to be. " ‐ South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Posted Aug 12, 2013
95% The Silence of the Lambs (1991) "As Lecter, Anthony Hopkins gives an astounding performance -- eery, menacing, creepy, believable. " ‐ South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Posted Aug 12, 2013
89% The Bridges of Madison County (1995) "The emotions evoked by this Bridges are in a minor key compared to the book, but they are honestly earned. " ‐ South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Posted Jul 31, 2013
95% Apollo 13 (1995) "The special effects are as spectacular as anything in Star Trek, but Howard shows wise restraint in not inflating the drama and tension inherent in the true story. " ‐ South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Posted Jul 30, 2013
2.5/4 78% Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix (2007) "It would be impossible for any director to jam that much story into a 2 hour and 18 minute picture, but the elisions favored by Yates and screenwriter Michael Goldenberg are particularly unfortunate. " ‐ South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Posted Jul 10, 2007
1/4 16% Eragon (2006) "For those who love the fantasy genre known as sword and sorcery -- and I count myself in their number -- sitting through the movie version of Eragon will suck the will to live right out of you." ‐ South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Posted Dec 14, 2006
2/4 58% Night Watch (2006) "An impossible-to-follow story crammed full of cursed women, wily bloodsuckers, Highlander-style warriors, vortexes of crows, incoherent fight scenes, and more music-video-inspired action than any one movie can comfortably contain." ‐ South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Posted Feb 23, 2006
3.5/4 88% Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire (2005) "As Harry, Ron and Hermione enter the awkward stage, the young people portraying them -- Daniel Radcliffe, Rupert Grint, Emma Watson -- grow ever more confident as professional actors. " ‐ South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Posted Nov 17, 2005
1/4 66% Everything is Illuminated (2005) "The heart and soul of Foer's novel are sacrificed in the process. By trucking in broad Holocaust clich├ęs, Schreiber repudiates his more nuanced source material." ‐ South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Posted Sep 29, 2005
1/4 60% The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy (2005) "The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy does prove there's nothing more painful than antic comedy that isn't really funny." ‐ South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Posted Apr 28, 2005
4/4 78% Sin City (2005) "Really, there will be no reason for anyone to make a comic-book movie ever again. Miller and Rodriguez have pushed the form as far as it can possibly go." ‐ South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Posted Mar 31, 2005
2.5/4 25% Blade: Trinity (2004) "The brow may be low, but it's perfectly manicured: Grade A production values abound, as does superior kung fu choreography." ‐ South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Posted Dec 8, 2004
3/4 65% Bright Young Things (2003) "Lovers of Waugh should be generally satisfied by the clever wordplay, inventive madcap situations, and, most of all, by the profoundly conservative message that the frivolous society elites sober up only when confronted with a disaster." ‐ South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Posted Sep 16, 2004
3.5/4 51% Vanity Fair (2004) "[Nair] has achieved a near-miracle of literary transmutation, taking a supremely rich, complicated and clear-eyed 19th century novel and turning it into a coherent and highly entertaining movie." ‐ South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Posted Sep 1, 2004
2/4 31% King Arthur (2004) "King Arthur is another big, expensive opportunity inexplicably wasted by an army of extremely talented movie people." ‐ South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Posted Jul 6, 2004
2.5/4 29% The Chronicles of Riddick (2004) "A crackerjack B-movie sci-fi adventure." ‐ South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Posted Jun 10, 2004
3.5/4 91% Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban (2004) "Almost everything about this movie looks and feels right. " ‐ South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Posted Jun 3, 2004
1/4 16% The Big Bounce (2004) "A travelogue pretending to be a movie. " ‐ South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Posted Jan 29, 2004
4/4 95% The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King (2003) "A grand, richly achieved fantasy epic that exalts such previously uncool virtues as honor, loyalty, self-sacrifice and chivalry. " ‐ South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Posted Dec 15, 2003
3/4 72% Runaway Jury (2003) "Runaway Jury may curdle into sentimental message-mongering in the closing minutes, but up to then it's a pungent potboiler cooked just so by skilled professionals. " ‐ South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Posted Oct 17, 2003
3.5/4 96% The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers (2002) "The grandest spectacle since David Lean hung up his light meter. " ‐ South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Posted Dec 17, 2002
3/4 69% Red Dragon (2002) "Red Dragon restores to Hannibal the dignity of pitiless evil that so terrified and enthralled us in Silence of the Lambs. " ‐ South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Posted Oct 4, 2002
3.5/4 81% One Hour Photo (2002) "Together, Williams and Romanek have made a stalker thriller that's as much in sympathy with the loneliness and alienation of the putative villain as it is with the jeopardy of his potential victims." ‐ South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Posted Aug 30, 2002
3/4 48% XXX (2002) "That avalanche, which Diesel's character causes on purpose, is one of the most impressive action sequences I've ever seen." ‐ South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Posted Aug 8, 2002
2/4 40% Reign of Fire (2002) "The movie makes absolutely no sense. Its underlying mythology is a hodgepodge of inconsistencies that pose the question: Since when did dumb entertainment have to be this dumb?" ‐ South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Posted Jul 12, 2002
2/4 48% Big Trouble (2002) "Too much worn-out shtick, too little detail and way too little Dave Barry." ‐ South Florida Sun-Sentinel
