Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
B- 41% Gold (2017) Gold ain't the McConaissance 2.0. But at least the actor is having fun again.‐ Entertainment Weekly

D 18% Assassin's Creed (2016) Assassin's Creed mistakenly assumes that the plot is the most important element of its source material. Actually, it's the least.‐ Entertainment Weekly

B+ 79% Hairspray Live! (2016) Credit the show for its timeliness -- and for getting more clever, or maybe just less abashedly decadent, as it went along.‐ Entertainment Weekly

A 91% Grease: Live! (2016) Grease: Live reconfirms all the possibilities of the live musical event as a genuine transcendent pop experience: Clever, funny, rapturously huge in a way showbiz used to only want to be.‐ Entertainment Weekly

B 65% Krampus (2015) If you love Gremlins but don't feel like rewatching Gremlins, consider Krampus a worthwhile diet caffeine-free alternative.‐ Entertainment Weekly

95% An Adventure in Space and Time (2013) Gatiss has written several Doctor Who scripts, and it's striking to see how he adapts the story behind the story into a vintage Who tale: A tale of misfits triumphing over long odds.‐ Entertainment Weekly

D 4% Scary Movie 5 (2013) A film composed almost entirely of jokes that were much funnier when you read them on Twitter years ago.‐ Entertainment Weekly

C- 3% Playing for Keeps (2012) Playing for Keeps takes place in a tonally incoherent universe, constantly shifting between rom-com farce and mawkish family drama.‐ Entertainment Weekly

B+ 78% Dredd (2012) Urban manages to give a credibly wry performance using little more than his gravelly, imitation-Eastwood voice - and his chin.‐ Entertainment Weekly
