Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
51% The World Is Not Enough (1999) What happens this time around? You know exactly what happens: Bond shoots people, has sex and saves the world. The beauty is, as with most Bond movies, it doesn't matter.‐ Cleveland Plain Dealer
Posted Nov 2, 2015
A 94% Sicario (2015) Sicario grabs you in the opening frame, then refuses to let go. Director Denis Villeneuve and his sterling cast have created an unrelentingly intense crime thriller. ‐ Cleveland Plain Dealer
Posted Sep 30, 2015
B 62% The Intern (2015) Robert De Niro is adorable. Really. ‐ Cleveland Plain Dealer
Posted Sep 30, 2015
C+ 10% Stonewall (2015) Despite the volatile subject matter, Stonewall is a rather bland rendering. ‐ Cleveland Plain Dealer
Posted Sep 30, 2015
B+ 73% Everest (2015) It serves in part as a memorial, a testament to the survivors, to those who tried desperately to rescue their teammates at enormous personal risk, and to the lives lost. ‐ Cleveland Plain Dealer
Posted Sep 21, 2015
B 48% Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials (2015) The second Maze Runner is an entertaining action-adventure that not only stands on its own, but surpasses the more limited rewards of the first film. ‐ Cleveland Plain Dealer
Posted Sep 21, 2015
B 92% Grandma (2015) It does not have the most deeply drawn characters or invigorating plot. But what it does have is pretty special: Lily Tomlin. ‐ Cleveland Plain Dealer
Posted Sep 21, 2015
B+ 64% The Visit (2015) Shyamalan creates good scares, and laughs, in this comedy-horror hybrid. ‐ Cleveland Plain Dealer
Posted Sep 10, 2015
B- 73% Slow Learners (2015) Adam Pally (The Mindy Project) and Sarah Burns (Enlightened) are good company and well-versed in dual deadpan delivery. ‐ Cleveland Plain Dealer
Posted Sep 10, 2015
B+ No Score Yet Eadweard (2015) First-time director Kyle Rideout, who co-wrote the screenplay with Josh Epstein, has a marvelous touch when it comes to embracing Muybridge's photographic passions. ‐ Cleveland Plain Dealer
Posted Sep 4, 2015
B- 76% Steve Jobs: Man in the Machine (2015) Much of the film is devoted to debunking Apple's image. ‐ Cleveland Plain Dealer
Posted Sep 4, 2015
C+ 83% Mistress America (2015) A game effort, but the script is just not sharp and witty enough, and the characters are not compelling enough, to drive it home. ‐ Cleveland Plain Dealer
Posted Sep 4, 2015
C 67% The Man From U.N.C.L.E. (2015) Like its slick trailer, The Man from U.N.C.L.E. is handsome and inviting, but its rewards are brief and unsatisfying. ‐ Cleveland Plain Dealer
Posted Aug 14, 2015
A- 91% The End Of The Tour (2015) Jason Segel delivers a wonderfully moving, memorable performance as David Foster Wallace. ‐ Cleveland Plain Dealer
Posted Aug 14, 2015

Posted Aug 14, 2015
B 64% Ricki And The Flash (2015) While the first half is a compelling, satisfying ride, the characters kind of meander through the second half. ‐ Cleveland Plain Dealer
Posted Aug 6, 2015
C- 44% Irrational Man (2015) Emma Stone and Joaquin Phoenix cannot save Woody Allen's clunky and contrived Irrational Man. ‐ Cleveland Plain Dealer
Posted Aug 6, 2015
A- 93% Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation (2015) As spy franchises go, this one has been pretty electric. ‐ Cleveland Plain Dealer
Posted Jul 30, 2015
B+ 52% A LEGO Brickumentary (2015) Jason Bateman explains Lego-mania in this fun, breezy little documentary. ‐ Cleveland Plain Dealer
Posted Jul 30, 2015
A- 26% Vacation (2015) Unlike its summer brothers-in-raunch, Ted 2 and Trainwreck, which feel the need to dip into sentiment and speechifying, Vacation is a straight up comedy. ‐ Cleveland Plain Dealer
Posted Jul 28, 2015
C 88% The Tribe (2015) The lack-of-language barrier is the least of its problems. ‐ Cleveland Plain Dealer
Posted Jul 17, 2015

Posted Jul 17, 2015
B+ 83% Testament Of Youth (2015) Alicia Vikander is sublime. ‐ Cleveland Plain Dealer
Posted Jul 15, 2015

Posted Jul 9, 2015

Posted Jul 7, 2015
A 89% Inglourious Basterds (2009) It's a lot to take in. But in the end, Tarantino leaves you wanting more. ‐ Cleveland Plain Dealer
Posted Jun 30, 2015
B+ 92% Drag Me to Hell (2009) It provides enough scare-jolts to have you squirming in your seat, plus enough laughs to leave you doubled over.‐ Cleveland Plain Dealer
Posted Jun 30, 2015
A 93% The Bourne Ultimatum (2007) This double-venti thriller is the best movie I've seen this summer.‐ Cleveland Plain Dealer
Posted Jun 23, 2015
B+ 76% A Murder In The Park (2015) A Murder in the Park provides insights into the inherent flaws of journalism, the justice system and police work, and raises a multitude of questions. ‐ Cleveland Plain Dealer
Posted Jun 23, 2015

Posted Jun 19, 2015
A 98% Inside Out (2015) "Inside Out" is a fun-filled ride with plenty of jokes for kids and adults. ‐ Cleveland Plain Dealer
Posted Jun 19, 2015
A 94% Iron Man (2008) Injecting the brilliantly bright, quick, and clever life force that is Robert Downey Jr. into the comic-book superhero realm is a masterstroke, a kick in the head to the tired franchises of the genre. ‐ Cleveland Plain Dealer
Posted Jun 15, 2015
C+ 94% Spy (2015) There's actually a pretty fun 90-minute comedy buried somewhere inside Spy's lumbering two hours. ‐ Cleveland Plain Dealer
Posted Jun 4, 2015
B- 93% I'll See You in My Dreams (2015) Bylthe Danner plays Carol with endearing grace, and a lot of chardonnay. ‐ Cleveland Plain Dealer
Posted Jun 4, 2015

Posted Jun 4, 2015
A 97% Mad Max: Fury Road (2015) Rocks the screen with a fluid intensity of masterful visual storytelling. ‐ Cleveland Plain Dealer
Posted May 14, 2015

Posted May 14, 2015

Posted May 7, 2015
B- 73% Welcome to Me (2015) Kristen Wiig out-weirds herself as a self-obsessed talk show host. ‐ Cleveland Plain Dealer
Posted May 7, 2015
C 48% The D Train (2015) Jack Black and James Marsden make a game effort, but The D Train does not arrive anywhere especially satisfying. ‐ Cleveland Plain Dealer
Posted May 7, 2015
B- 75% Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015) Enough fight scenes and action sequences for three Marvel movies, but they are rather nondescript. ‐ Cleveland Plain Dealer
Posted Apr 29, 2015
A 93% Ex Machina (2015) A smart, entertaining sci-fi thriller with dazzling performances and clever psychological sparring, human and otherwise. ‐ Cleveland Plain Dealer
Posted Apr 23, 2015
B+ 63% The Water Diviner (2015) Russell Crowe delivers -- as actor and director -- in sweeping WWI-era drama. ‐ Cleveland Plain Dealer
Posted Apr 23, 2015
B 62% Unfriended (2015) This isn't great cinema, folks. It's more of a novelty. But it's a cleverly constructed novelty. ‐ Cleveland Plain Dealer
Posted Apr 16, 2015
C 44% True Story (2015) A dry, flat production. Neither convincing nor dramatic. ‐ Cleveland Plain Dealer
Posted Apr 16, 2015
B 88% Backcountry (2015) Is that a black bear outside our tent, or just some creepy dude? ‐ Cleveland Plain Dealer
Posted Apr 11, 2015
