T-Meter Title | Year
98% All About My Mother (Todo sobre mi madre) (1999) I don't care who you are, where you're from or what your cinematic tastes may have been up to this point, you've never seen anything like it. - Movieline EDIT

87% American Beauty (1999) Cinematographer Conrad L. Hall uses shadows and the color red to startling effect, and director Sam Mendes moves around his characters so assuredly, I realized you don't even need dialogue to follow the plot. - Movieline EDIT

45% The Way of the Gun (2000) McQuarrie's entire roster strains the limits of character likability to the breaking point, and no amount of plot twists, double-crosses, or hidden alliances can help us relate to or even tolerate anyone on screen. - Movieline EDIT

2% The In Crowd (2000) Almost a documentary of how to make an awful movie. - Movieline EDIT

79% Shanghai Noon (2000) This plot has made the rounds in umpteen action flicks, but director Tom Dey seems to have more on his mind as he gleefully sends up the Hollywood western. - Movieline EDIT

68% American Psycho (2000) Harron, thankfully, chooses to leave most of the carnage to our imaginations, but without any psychological backing for Patrick's bloody acts, they ring pretty hollow. - Movieline EDIT

54% The Lost World - Jurassic Park (1997) If Jurassic Park reminds us of the magic Hollywood is capable of, The Lost World shows us how quickly we get bored. - Movieline EDIT

52% Save the Last Dance (2001) It ain't deep, but that's okay. If we can't all just get along in the real world, it's nice to pretend for a few hours that we can. - Movieline EDIT

52% Bounce (2000) [Gives] us two smart, likable characters to follow. - Movieline EDIT
