Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
3/4 83% Potiche (2011) A breezy, smart and sometimes surprising commentary on capitalism, gender roles and idealism disguised as a romantic comedy.‐ Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

2.5/4 11% There Be Dragons (2011) As played by Cox, Escriva is earnest, heartfelt and full of tolerance, driven by his message of love and forgiveness for all, regardless of where their politics lie.‐ Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

2.5/4 80% Barney's Version (2011) In Giamatti's hands - and especially his mouth - Barney is a font of invective, with a sharp wit and withering glance designed to reduce others to dust. It's an impressive performance, but it makes him, and his version of events, hard to embrace.‐ Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

2.5/4 79% The Agony and the Ecstasy of Phil Spector (2010) Even with Spector's dark obsessions and current prison address, you can't dismiss his music's power, or its influence.‐ Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

3/4 65% Tamara Drewe (2010) Always engaging, if disjointed, and dotted with pleasant surprises.‐ Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

2.5/4 51% Cool It (2010) Unfortunately, "Cool It," even with its better ideas, too often feels like just more talking.‐ Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

2/4 No Score Yet Feed the Fish (2009) Writer-director Michael Matzdorff, a Green Bay native, clearly has an affection for Door County ... But that makes the weather and other up-nort clichés all the more disappointing.‐ Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

2/4 81% Like Dandelion Dust (2010) An earnest and well-acted, if occasionally flat, drama about what it means to be a parent.‐ Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

3/4 81% Cairo Time (2010) Clarkson, as always, is genuine and terrific.‐ Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

2.5/4 53% Agora (2010) A landscape where heart and head can collide in a great fury, and when the world felt like it could go one way or the other.‐ Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

2.5/4 64% Harry Brown (2010) In the hands of a lesser actor, this would feel just as clichéd as it sounds. But Caine brings his smarts as well as his baggage to the character, making him more than another mad-as-hell guy with a gun.‐ Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

2/4 80% Solitary Man (2010) You want to like this Solitary Man. But finally, you're better off without him.‐ Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

2.5/4 62% When You're Strange (2010) The Doors weren't the embodiment of their time; they weren't even the most important rock act of their time. But When You're Strange shows why their music and iconography has lasted beyond their time.‐ Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

2.5/4 92% Vincere (2010) Vincere is big on visual gestures, and many of them are stunning. But the most powerful moments come when the main characters get to speak plainly and passionately.‐ Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

3/4 81% City Island (2010) Just when City Island makes you want to say "Enough with the yelling already!" it does, and the characters' stories get softer, less wacky, more nuanced -- and more interesting.‐ Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

2.5/4 87% Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call New Orleans (2009) Sometimes director Werner Herzog - a master, for nearly four decades, at blending the bizarre and the mundane - does let you in on Cage's motives. But just as often, he delivers a life, and a world, of random mayhem.‐ Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

2.5/4 67% Paris (2008) When these Parisians actually do connect, the city's magic finally begins to shine. Binoche, in particular, positively glows when things finally go right for her. Still, such moments seem a long time coming, and often feel, well, a bit rushed.‐ Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

3/4 36% New York, I Love You (2009) Even if you're a post-World Series Yankees-hater, it's hard not to love the New York in New York, I Love You.‐ Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

2.5/4 59% Walt & El Grupo (2008) You get a taste of what the Disney group went through and saw, and you see how that work translated into rough sketches and designs.‐ Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
