T-Meter Title | Year Review
91% Scandal (1989) Michael Caton-Jones' Scandal tries to recreate those muddied times for the British in a sex-laden but leaden film that's held together only by John Hurt's strong performance as Stephen Ward. - Associated Press EDIT

73% Miss Firecracker (1989) Ultimately, Miss Firecracker is a sweet celebration of humanity, of just plain folks trying to get by. - Associated Press EDIT

59% White Palace (1990) White Palace is more than a romance or a bedroom romp or human comedy. It is a lesson in judgments and values, and a glimpse at emotional roulette. - Associated Press EDIT

79% Peter Pan (1953) In the 36 years of its existence, the movie has aged as little as Peter himself. It is still a lush, bright feature that happily clicks along with rollicking songs by Sammy Cahn, Sammy Fain and others. - Associated Press EDIT

100% The Trip to Bountiful (1985) The cast is marvelously filled out with John Heard as Ludie and Carlin Glynn as Jessie Mae As an ensemble it is as fine a cast as one could want. - Associated Press EDIT

20% Santa Claus: The Movie (1985) A holiday honey of a film for the entire family. - Associated Press EDIT

75% The Cotton Club (1984) The Cotton Club is an expensive fiasco that meanders through the '20s and '30s with flimsy characters and a pointless plot. - Associated Press EDIT

98% The Right Stuff (1983) The Right Stuff is a spectacular celebration of those heroes of the skies -- those fly jocks who fought the demons of space to launch a new era in American air technology. - Associated Press EDIT

91% Hannah and Her Sisters (1986) Is Hannah and Her Sisters, the 14th movie written and directed by Allen, worth the wait? No. - Associated Press EDIT

53% Return to Oz (1985) The new characters may not have the human qualities the others had the souls and personalities. However, they are interesting enough and true to the tales spun by Baum in The Land of Oz (1904) and Ozma of Oz (1907). - Associated Press EDIT

64% Cross Creek (1983) Cross Creek is a lyrical but vivid portrait of life in the untamed backwoods of Central Florida in the late 1920s. - Associated Press EDIT

93% Mask (1985) Directed with great sensitivity by Peter Bogdanovich, Cher portrays Rusty with an almost sweet vulnerability. - Associated Press EDIT

8% Milk Money (1994) A silly, offensive movie. - Associated Press EDIT

No Score Yet A Time to Live (1985) Miss Minnelli, recipient of an Academy award and a multiple Tony winner, makes her dramatic debut on television in her role as Mary-Lou. She displays humor and a high level of energy. - Associated Press EDIT

25% Harlem Nights (1989) Murphy's writing is about as snappy as a Sunday school lesson. The constant obscenities become a distraction and an eventual turnoff, and seem to be used when the writer and director can't invent something more creative. - Associated Press EDIT

55% All Dogs Go To Heaven (1989) ''All Dogs Go to Heaven'' will never be an animated classic, such as ''Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs'' or ''Bambi,'' but it is enjoyable entertainment for the entire family. - Associated Press EDIT

No Score Yet Foreign Student (1994) Givens and Hofschneider are wonderful together. There's a sweet gentleness in their interaction, and their love scenes are electric. - Associated Press EDIT

87% Presumed Innocent (1990) The movie is plump with twists, turns and blind alleys. Who can be trusted? Who is innocent? Who is guilty? - Associated Press EDIT

29% Posse (1993) ''Posse,'' which could have been a moving and gripping tribute to black Western heroes - and a testament against bigotry and injustice - ends up with laughs in all the wrong places. - Associated Press EDIT

44% Waterworld (1995) Costner... is totally humorless and as dreary as the landscape he travels. And the uninspired and often inane dialogue in Peter Rader and David Twohy's script doesn't help. - Associated Press EDIT

18% Boxing Helena (1993) 'Boxing Helena'' is a bad film - with terrible acting, cliched dialogue, a silly script, pedestrian camera work and inferior direction. - Associated Press EDIT

88% Malcolm X (1992) Lee's movie, despite good intentions, does not inspire any visceral realities. It simply is too superficial, too theatrically poised without the hard-edge that could have made it a masterpiece. - Associated Press EDIT
