T-Meter Title | Year
3/4 52% Die Hard: With a Vengeance (1995) Die Hard With a Vengeance is an explosive thrill ride. That is its sole purpose, and it succeeds, loudly and breathlessly. - Baltimore Sun EDIT

2/4 42% Space Jam (1996) "Jam" gets two stars for amiability and sporadic humor, with the proviso that it's worth at least three stars for 5-year-olds, who will love it. - Baltimore Sun EDIT

3/4 54% Cruel Intentions (1999) Despite the last 10 minutes, there's much to like in Cruel Intentions. - Baltimore Sun EDIT

1.5/4 27% Event Horizon (1997) With high production values and low aspirations, Event Horizon begins as a mildly intriguing science-fiction movie and degenerates into yet another slasher flick about evil from another dimension. - Baltimore Sun EDIT

2/4 3% The Mod Squad (1999) Fans of the TV show say it was cool. The movie is kind of cool, too, but it tastes like cold leftovers after an hour and a half of stupidity. - Baltimore Sun EDIT

3.5/4 66% The Pillow Book (1997) The Pillow Book is erotica for bookworms. Its poetic story is told brush stroke by brush stroke, in calligraphy painted on naked bodies and in the "pillow book" or diary of Nagiko (Vivian Wu). - Baltimore Sun EDIT

2.5/4 12% Striptease (1996) Although the movie is a bit too long, oddball humor and a likable cast keep it entertaining. - Baltimore Sun EDIT

2.5/4 66% The Rock (1996) Connery and Cage are a compelling team and redeem the film from ruin despite the mechanical plot, an excessive body count and a miraculous recovery (you'll know it when you see it). - Baltimore Sun EDIT

2.5/4 77% Braveheart (1995) Braveheart is a stouthearted, old-fashioned hero movie in which honorable Scottish underdogs fight nasty British nobles. It lacks refinement, but it's a satisfying war story (and mediocre love story) in the grand Hollywood tradition. - Baltimore Sun EDIT

2.5/4 74% The Santa Clause (1994) Allen's foray into the real world after his transformation begins is the funniest part of the movie. - Baltimore Sun EDIT

91% James and the Giant Peach (1996) Ultimately, though, it isn't nearly as flavorful as Roald Dahl's deliciously perverse children's book, upon which the movie is based. - Baltimore Sun EDIT

3.5/4 88% The Matrix (1999) The Matrix is a movie experience like no other, and experience is what it's all about. It explodes with dazzling visuals and a transcendent sense of excitement. - Baltimore Sun EDIT

2.5/4 90% The Bridges of Madison County (1995) The Bridges of Madison County is as good as it is because of its performances. It's as bad as it is because of its source. - Baltimore Sun EDIT
