Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
A- 82% Loving Vincent (2017) Might I suggest a nice glass of wine (or three) while you soak it in. I think you'll find that that will accompany the film like it would with a fine meal.‐ Houston Community Newspapers

A- 87% Blade Runner 2049 (2017) I found this new project to be vastly superior in story, acting, score and overall production.‐ Houston Community Newspapers

A- 87% American Made (2017) I'm sure in 20 years' time we will be watching another hot actor (or maybe actress) show us a story of the nutty crap that is probably going on as we speak in the current administration.‐ Houston Community Newspapers

B- 51% Kingsman: The Golden Circle (2017) For guilty pleasure purposes, the film provides a fun couple of hours, but ultimately fails to match its superior freshman outing.‐ Houston Community Newspapers

B- 68% mother! (2017) It's like a long, confusing parable where Jesus doesn't stop to explain its meaning afterward.‐ Houston Community Newspapers

B+ 85% It (2017) It works phenomenally well, leaving you thoroughly engaged rather than shaking in your boots.‐ Houston Community Newspapers

C- 77% Bridget Jones's Baby (2016) What was once a clever take on Pride and Prejudice has been reduced to an unsuccessful franchise tryst. ‐ Houston Community Newspapers

B- No Score Yet If There's a Hell Below (2016) It is an exercise in tension that is worth checking out when you need an excuse to bite your nails.‐ Houston Community Newspapers

55% Jason Bourne (2016) My guess is that the camera work is much the same here, but this time I had a nice Pinot Noir during the movie (thank you AMC theaters) and my nerves were much more able to handle it.‐ Houston Community Newspapers

B 94% Finding Dory (2016) Finding Dory will be a popular summer movie but just don't expect one of their better performances.‐ Houston Community Newspapers

C- 27% Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (2016) Production alone isn't enough to carry a film.‐ Houston Community Newspapers

A- 93% Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens (2015) Kids and adults alike are going to eat this thing up and come back for seconds and thirds, probably in the same weekend, if they can score tickets.‐ Houston Community Newspapers

A- 73% Everest (2015) I have no desire to climb any of the seven peaks, but being able to watch a movie like this gives me all the thrill I need, wrapped up in a two hour package.‐ Houston Community Newspapers

F 19% Aloha (2015) Sadly, San Andreas is not the only disaster movie hitting theaters this weekend.‐ Fort Bend Sun
Read More | Posted May 28, 2015
A- 71% Interstellar (2014) Interstellar is one of the most ambitious films in this genre that I've ever experienced. ‐ Fort Bend Sun

F 49% Heaven Is for Real (2014) While watching, I couldn't help but think of the studio execs in the background whispering in the filmmakers ears "does it have to be so religious? Can you make it any less... Christian?" ‐ Fort Bend Sun

A 79% Saving Mr. Banks (2013) I can't think of a better holiday film that you'll be able to enjoy with your families.‐ Fort Bend Sun

A- 82% This Is the End (2013) I love a movie where it feels as if you just worked out your abs because you laughed so hard.‐ Fort Bend Sun
Read More | Posted Jun 17, 2013
C 21% The Hangover Part III (2013) Overall, the movie suffers from a lack of inspiration. The desire to produce a sequel overrode the need to create another legendary film.‐ Fort Bend Sun

A- 38% Admission (2013) ...the ending result is much better than I thought it was capable of being.‐ Fort Bend Sun
Read More | Posted Mar 19, 2013
A 92% Zero Dark Thirty (2013) ...even if this is a completely fictional account, it seems true and our need to fill in the gaps will cause what I think will be a massive audience to see this much anticipated film. ‐ Fort Bend Sun

A- 64% The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey (2012) I found myself concentrating more on the strange look of the film and less on the film itself.‐ Fort Bend Sun
Read More | Posted Dec 10, 2012
A 90% Lincoln (2012) The events of the tale might be 150 years old, but they couldn't be more relevant to today's political climate. ‐ Fort Bend Sun
Read More | Posted Nov 15, 2012
C 67% Lawless (2012) Gary Oldman is the only actor who really knocks it out. Unfortunately he's only in the film for a few minutes.‐ Fort Bend Sun
Read More | Posted Aug 27, 2012
A- 73% The Amazing Spider-Man (2012) As long as the film is well-written, well-acted and well-executed, then bring it on. After all, I've read hundreds of his stories in comics growing up. If the films are at least this good - I'll watch hundreds also.‐ Fort Bend Sun

B 35% Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter (2012) The 3D in this film is spectacular. It adds such an incredible element to the movie that I will go as far as to say the film shouldn't be seen in 2D. ‐ Fort Bend Sun

C+ 78% Brave (2012) While the visual artists here should be commended for a job well done, the story artists need to get a better understanding of what made Pixar so special to begin with.‐ Fort Bend Sun

A- 73% Prometheus (2012) I think the thing I like most about this film is that it will spark many, many interesting conversations. So many people will have so many takes on the film and I am really looking forward to joining the debates. ‐ Fort Bend Sun

A- 57% The Dictator (2012) He very lovingly pokes fun at us like a favorite uncle who wants you to pull his finger. ‐ Fort Bend Sun

B- 56% Albert Nobbs (2012) Glenn Close does her best Clay Aiken impression as she pretends to be a male butler in 19th century Ireland.‐ Fort Bend Sun

A- 81% Get the Gringo (2012) Made me want to take a shower after watching.‐ Fort Bend Sun
Read More | Posted May 8, 2012
B+ 92% The Cabin in the Woods (2012) This movie might look like a scream-fest from the outside, but what you get on the inside is a very clever and extremely funny pseudo-scarer.‐ Fort Bend Sun
Read More | Posted Apr 13, 2012
A 46% Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close (2012) Through the boy's eyes we see a world that can be cruel, but that can also be filled with love, laughter and adventure. ‐ Fort Bend Sun

C+ 43% J. Edgar (2011) Clint is a talented composer, but this film needed a much better score than it received. I would bet that hiring Alexandre Desplat, a composer who is much more adept at expressing emotion in softer films, could have improved the experience immensely. ‐ Fort Bend Sun

A- 83% The Elephant In The Living Room (2011) Incredibly informational, interesting and profoundly moving. ‐ Fort Bend Sun
Read More | Posted Sep 19, 2011
B 93% Drive (2011) The most impressive performance here though comes from Albert Brooks who plays the deceptively friendly gangster and I will predict that he will get his first Oscar nomination (and possible win) in over twenty years.‐ Fort Bend Sun
Read More | Posted Sep 14, 2011
B 95% The Guard (2011) There aren't a whole lot of leading roles out there for guys that look like a 56-year-old version of me. So there should be no wonder why I like the guy and want to see him do well.‐ Fort Bend Sun

C+ 35% Transformers: Dark of the Moon (2011) When my bladder and I began analyzing it, we found many, many places where [running] time could have been effectively cut down.‐ Fort Bend Sun
Read More | Posted Jul 5, 2011
A+ 84% The Tree of Life (2011) If you actually ask "honey, should we go see Pirates, Hangover or Tree of Life?," by all means - go see one of the other two. Your frame of mind is everything when it comes to your potential enjoyment and connection with this movie.‐ Fort Bend Sun

B+ 60% Water for Elephants (2011) Stealing the show here was the Tai, the elephant actress. Not only was she beautiful and talented, but she brought more to the table than I'm sure was expected. She had me mesmerized every minute she was the in the film.‐ Fort Bend Sun

C- 39% The Eagle (2011) PG-13 is not the arena this film should be fighting in.‐ Fort Bend Sun
Read More | Posted Feb 9, 2011
F 9% Season of the Witch (2011) The only time I was even modestly entertained was when the 10-year-old boy sitting behind me (obviously taken out of school to see the film by his model parents) started belching unrelentingly at the screen.‐ Fort Bend Sun

A+ 95% True Grit (2010) Using the themes of protestant hymns such as "What a Friend We Have in Jesus" and "Leaning on the Everlasting Arms," Carter provides a score that soars above the film and resonates in your head long after you've left the theater.‐ Fort Bend Sun

C+ 49% Love and Other Drugs (2010) Having worked as a Pfizer rep for the exact same period that our hero did, I can tell you that they got almost everything wrong. ‐ Fort Bend Sun
Read More | Posted Nov 29, 2010
A+ 89% Tangled (2010) Through use of ingenious story crafting, the fairy tale proves to be what I consider Disney's best film (not including Pixar pics) since Beauty and the Beast, and overall one of their greatest creations.‐ Fort Bend Sun

C 55% Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps (2010) Somebody obviously likes David Byrne and Brian Eno, but to have every song of the movie sung by them felt like a bad 80’s comedy starring Dudley Moore, not a contemporary movie about the financial crash that had such a great impact on all of our lives.‐ Fort Bend Sun
Read More | Posted Oct 11, 2010
A 89% Waiting for Superman (2010) A catalyst for revolution.‐ Fort Bend Sun
Read More | Posted Oct 11, 2010
C- 53% Going the Distance (2010) And thus the romantic comedy slump continues.‐ Fort Bend Sun
Read More | Posted Aug 30, 2010
A- 36% To Save a Life (2010) I can see this being a positive influence for many who watch it and for some it could possibly even make a huge difference, and you don't get that from many movies these days. ‐ Fort Bend Sun

C+ 48% The A-Team (2010) Everything in this film runs on perfect timing built on insane assumptions‐ Fort Bend Sun
