Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
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. " ‐
Posted Jun 9, 2013
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. " ‐
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. " ‐
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. " ‐
Posted Apr 5, 2013
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. " ‐
Posted Mar 8, 2013
D 46% Beautiful Creatures (2013) "Far from spellbinding. " ‐
Posted Feb 14, 2013
D 19% Identity Thief (2013) "An unfunny jumble of absurdities. " ‐
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. " ‐
Posted Jan 20, 2013
D 19% Texas Chainsaw (2013) "Pointless, atrocious on every level and gives horror films a bad name. " ‐
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. " ‐
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. " ‐
Posted Dec 17, 2012
B 84% Bully (2012) "An intense look at bullying from the perspective of the victims. " ‐
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. " ‐
Posted Dec 11, 2012
B 86% Beasts of the Southern Wild (2012) "The film with the biggest heart of 2012. " ‐
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. " ‐
Posted Dec 7, 2012
D- 29% The Wicker Tree (2012) "A gumbo of foolishness. " ‐
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. " ‐
Posted Dec 7, 2012
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. " ‐
Posted Dec 7, 2012
A 93% The Central Park Five (2012) "Not only gripping and heartbreaking, but terrifying. " ‐
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? " ‐
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. " ‐
Posted Nov 2, 2012
B 77% The Bay (2012) "The flick smoothly does its job, narrowly avoiding B-movie lane. " ‐
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.' " ‐
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. " ‐
Posted Oct 18, 2012
B 96% Brooklyn Castle (2012) "Heartwarming and educational. " ‐
Posted Oct 18, 2012
C 57% The Dictator (2012) "The publicity stunts for promoting The Dictator were funnier than the actual movie. " ‐
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. " ‐
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. " ‐
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. " ‐
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. " ‐
Posted Jun 24, 2012
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. " ‐
Posted Jun 1, 2012
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? " ‐
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! " ‐
Posted May 4, 2012
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. " ‐
Posted Apr 20, 2012
B- 84% The Hunger Games (2012) "Surprisingly tolerable. " ‐
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! " ‐
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. " ‐
Posted Dec 29, 2011
A 93% Pariah (2011) "Any movie that opens with Khia's 'My Neck, My Back' is my kind of flick! " ‐
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. " ‐
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. " ‐
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. " ‐
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!' " ‐
Posted Dec 9, 2011
D 7% New Year's Eve (2011) "The worst sin of 'New Year's Eve' is the insulating presentation of New Year's Eve in the Big Apple. Hopefully, no one thinks New Year's Eve in New York City is this boring, clichéd and common. " ‐
Posted Dec 9, 2011
B+ 90% London River (2011) "Bouchareb's greatest accomplishment is successfully tackling class, grief and Islamophobia. " ‐
Posted Dec 7, 2011
B- 76% The Debt (2011) "There is enough tension to stay engaged for the full running time. That said, I'd skip through 'The Debt' if I ever caught it channel surfing. " ‐
Posted Dec 6, 2011
B 79% Shame (2011) "'Shame' deserves accolades for wonderful direction from Steve McQueen. He clearly made the film he wanted to make. " ‐
Posted Dec 2, 2011
B 67% Limelight (2011) "An engaging story which includes corruption, murder, drugs, violence and the right to party. " ‐
Posted Dec 1, 2011
C+ 71% Hanna (2011) "'Hanna,' 'Salt' and 'Colombiana' should all merge together for a sequel. " ‐
Posted Nov 23, 2011
B+ 90% Attack the Block (2011) "Deserves the praise it's received. " ‐
Posted Nov 22, 2011
C+ 24% Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1 (2011) "A half-human and half-vampire fetus is no easy pregnancy. Will Bella die? Will the baby die? Where's Dakota Fanning? Where's Lautner's shirt? Who cares? It's 'Twilight'! The cast could speak an alien language for two hours and fans would be happy. " ‐
Posted Nov 17, 2011
C 3% Jack and Jill (2011) "If there was a drag queen pageant and Mrs. Doubtfire, Noxeema Jackson, Madea and Jill had to compete (even the name, Jill, is bland), Miss Jill would get the axe before she graced the runway. " ‐
