Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
C+ 14% Winnie Mandela (2013) 'Winnie' is no masterpiece, but not nearly as bad as the early reviews.‐

B+ 71% Lee Daniels' The Butler (2013) A phenomenal continuation of the director's visionary eye for storytelling, imagery and reality.‐

B- 44% The Call (2013) 'The Call' won't be a film we'll remember five years or even a year from now, but the popcorn flick isn't meant to rock the souls of viewers, it's meant to entertain.‐

D 86% The Conjuring (2013) A character declares, 'God brought us together for a reason!' Too bad it was for this movie, another over-hyped horror flick rehashing a four-decade old storyline.‐

B 94% Fruitvale Station (2013) Raw, real and memorable.‐
Read More | Posted Jul 11, 2013
A 67% World War Z (2013) Zombies in Philly, zombies in Jerusalem - even zombies in the projects of Newark! Innovative and terrifying - 'World War Z' is arguably the best zombie film since 1968's 'Night of the Living Dead.'‐

C+ 55% Man of Steel (2013) Mr. Kent somberly wanders the Midwest, pondering the struggles of being an incredibly handsome alien with perfect hair, steel pecs and a natural six pack. The film struggles, never finding the balance of action and the 'deep' storyline.‐

A 98% Call Me Kuchu (2013) Simultaneously difficult to watch and a must-see.‐
Read More | Posted Jun 13, 2013
C+ 37% The Purge (2013) 'The Purge' purges every trite home invasion scenario. That said, audiences will enjoy 'The Purge' more than critics. We're suckers for screeching villains, big explosions and victims getting their gory revenge. ‐

B 86% Star Trek Into Darkness (2013) 'Star Trek' safely does its job and is easily the first must-see action flick of the year.‐
Read More | Posted May 28, 2013
B- 53% Oblivion (2013) The movie will earn solid numbers at the box office and probably disappear into celluloid oblivion in less than a month - but that doesn't mean Cruise's latest action effort isn't a fun ride.‐
Read More | Posted Apr 19, 2013
D 61% Evil Dead (2013) In one bloody scene, the leading lady cried, 'It was so horrible! It was so horrible!' Girl, I know how you feel - that's exactly what I said when the credits rolled.‐

A 93% Free Angela & All Political Prisoners (2013) After watching 'Free Angela and All Political Prisoners,' audiences will walk away rejuvenated, thankful and, surprisingly, even more proud to be an American.‐
Read More | Posted Mar 8, 2013
D 46% Beautiful Creatures (2013) Far from spellbinding.‐
Read More | Posted Feb 14, 2013
D 19% Identity Thief (2013) An unfunny jumble of absurdities.‐
Read More | Posted Feb 7, 2013
D- 65% Mama (2013) Unimaginative and far from scary, don't believe anyone who tells you 'Mama' is worth your money or time.‐
Read More | Posted Jan 20, 2013
D 19% Texas Chainsaw (2013) Pointless, atrocious on every level and gives horror films a bad name.‐
Read More | Posted Jan 4, 2013
B+ 96% Argo (2012) 'Argo' only clocks in at a two-hour running time and tells a much better story than the films that over-stuff audiences with nearly three-hours.‐
Read More | Posted Dec 28, 2012
B- 69% Les Misérables (2012) 'Les Misérables' delivers stunning moments, but there is more pomp and circumstance than needed heart and soul.‐
Read More | Posted Dec 17, 2012
B 84% Bully (2012) An intense look at bullying from the perspective of the victims.‐
Read More | Posted Dec 14, 2012
A 88% Django Unchained (2012) 'Django Unchained' thunders across the big screen as a fireball of celluloid flawlessness. Quentin Tarantino's greatest work since 'Pulp Fiction' and, undoubtedly, the best film of 2012.‐
Read More | Posted Dec 11, 2012
B 86% Beasts of the Southern Wild (2012) The film with the biggest heart of 2012. ‐
Read More | Posted Dec 10, 2012
A 99% How to Survive a Plague (2012) A brilliant blueprint on how to spark a revolution. The activists who were highlighted in this film are American heroes to us all - gay, straight, black, white, male or female.‐
Read More | Posted Dec 7, 2012
D- 29% The Wicker Tree (2012) A gumbo of foolishness.‐
Read More | Posted Dec 7, 2012
B- 90% Lincoln (2012) Good film, but 'Lincoln' is not a movie about Abraham Lincoln - it's about a man in an Abe costume posing as someone who had overwhelming love for African-Americans, when in reality that was far from the Lincoln documented in history.‐

A 43% The Paperboy (2012) 'The Paperboy' is a film that will get the respect it deserves years later. One day, film schools will dissect the movie and marvel at the flick's wondrous deconstruction of race, gender and class.‐
Read More | Posted Dec 7, 2012
A 93% The Central Park Five (2012) Not only gripping and heartbreaking, but terrifying.‐
Read More | Posted Dec 7, 2012
B 49% The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2 (2012) Leave your intelligence at the door and you might enjoy 'Breaking Dawn, Part 2.' Side note: Why were the two Black vampires Amazon savages with not even one line of dialogue?‐
Read More | Posted Nov 15, 2012
B 78% Flight (2012) Cinematically, the best moment is a terrifying plane crash scene that is sure to haunt frequent travelers - what 'Psycho' did for motel showers is what 'Flight' will do for the 'friendly' skies.‐
Read More | Posted Nov 2, 2012
B 77% The Bay (2012) The flick smoothly does its job, narrowly avoiding B-movie lane.‐
Read More | Posted Nov 2, 2012
B 66% Cloud Atlas (2012) A complex mishmash of 'The Matrix' meets 'Apocalypto' meets 'Amistad' - with a touch of 'Inception' and 'Oprah's Lifeclass.' ‐
Read More | Posted Oct 25, 2012
B+ 87% Middle of Nowhere (2012) A heartbreaking but teachable story about love and the morbid sacrifices we make to find it.‐
Read More | Posted Oct 18, 2012
B 96% Brooklyn Castle (2012) Heartwarming and educational.‐
Read More | Posted Oct 18, 2012
C 57% The Dictator (2012) The publicity stunts for promoting The Dictator were funnier than the actual movie.‐
Read More | Posted Oct 16, 2012
B 33% Won't Back Down (2012) Viola Davis could play Donald Trump in a movie and make it believable. She is clearly touched by a higher power. Right when the film was about to crash and burn in bad Lifetime movie territory, Viola popped up on-screen and saved the cinematic day.‐
Read More | Posted Sep 28, 2012
B 67% Otelo Burning (2012) A memorable story about kids who hold bigger dreams than what they are told and taught they could accomplish.‐
Read More | Posted Sep 24, 2012
B- 87% The Dark Knight Rises (2012) Could've been titled 'Inception: Gotham City Edition.' About 90 minutes is near genius, the rest is useless. An endurable two hours and forty-five minutes, but I would never sit through it again - unless I could fast-forward to Catwoman's scenes.‐
Read More | Posted Jul 20, 2012
C+ 35% Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter (2012) It's just as good as 'Twilight' (yeah, I said it) and there isn't a trite teen love story. In the genre of vampire films, 'Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter' is a solid movie. Outside of the genre, it's below average.‐

B 92% Chely Wright: Wish Me Away (2012) 'Wish Me Away' is not just another doc on coming out; it's a unique story from a brave woman whose truth was more important than fame and glamour.‐

C+ 34% Battleship (2012) Side note: Rihanna's hat deserves recognition! That cap was sealed on her head - weathering ocean waters and alien attacks! Who needs a lace front with a hat like Rih's?‐
Read More | Posted May 19, 2012
C+ 92% Marvel's The Avengers (2012) There are also the fans who rage in the comments, as if men in spandex are as serious as war and the economy. Is there a defensive euphoria in seeing your childhood heroes come to life? Is 'The Avengers' a great film? No. Will people love it? Yes! ‐

A 95% Marley (2012) 'Marley' will go down in cinematic history as one of the greatest music documentaries of all time. The first must-see movie of 2012.‐
Read More | Posted Apr 20, 2012
B- 84% The Hunger Games (2012) Surprisingly tolerable.‐
Read More | Posted Mar 22, 2012
C+ 85% Chronicle (2012) A disappointingly mediocre film that needed some serious creative superpowers versus relying on docu-style gimmicks and trite morality tales. One plus: It wasn't in 3D!‐
Read More | Posted Feb 3, 2012
B- 51% The Iron Lady (2012) The most troublesome element is the iron-clad praise of Thatcher being the only female Prime Minister. Despite the history, she was a rigid conservative known for disregarding the poor in a way that would make the current Republican candidates blush.‐

A 93% Pariah (2011) Any movie that opens with Khia's 'My Neck, My Back' is my kind of flick!‐
Read More | Posted Dec 27, 2011
B 83% My Week with Marilyn (2011) Who knows how many more Marilyn Monroe films Hollywood will make. 'My Week' is one of the best, but outside of the 'Marilyn genre,' this is not one that will be nearly as timeless as the icon herself.‐
Read More | Posted Dec 21, 2011
B 94% Mission: Impossible Ghost Protocol (2011) Take off your thinking cap and munch on extra buttery popcorn. The fourth installment is candy for the brain, a straightforward action flick that doesn't disappoint.‐
Read More | Posted Dec 16, 2011
A 100% Kinyarwanda (2011) All respect to Alrick Brown for giving audiences a fresh take on the Rwandan genocide. In a movie that was shot in 16 days, viewers will be educated and moved. ‐
Read More | Posted Dec 13, 2011
D 90% Martha Marcy May Marlene (2011) 'Indie' is a marketing label that gives lazy films credibility. 'Martha Marcy May Marlene' is the perfect example. Every flaw can be summed up with: 'Well, it's an indie!'‐
