T-Meter Title | Year
8.9/10 90% The Lego Batman Movie (2017) (A) delightful send-up ... amidst the well-known mythos of the Dark Knight ... if you don't take it too seriously (the film sure didn't), you'll have a great time. - Geeks Under Grace EDIT

9.25/10 97% Mission: Impossible - Fallout (2018) With the series being this good this far into itself, long live Ethan Hunt! - Colbybryant.com EDIT

8.0/10 72% Christopher Robin (2018) It isn't perfect, especially as it comes near the end, but I'd say that this is a film that does everything it needed to do with a touch of beauty. - Colbybryant.com EDIT

4.75/10 29% Venom (2018) ...Come to enjoy Tom Hardy acting crazy and some slick visuals. Other than that, it's likely you'll be disappointed on some level. - Colbybryant.com EDIT

6.75/10 58% The Grinch (2018) (Nowhere) near perfect, but ... an undeniably fun film to take the family to as Christmas approaches and to remind all that love and kindness can change things for the better. - Colbybryant.com EDIT

5.75/10 37% Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald (2018) The film didn't work as well as I hoped it would going in ... While the film offers some intriguing scenarios ... there is a lot left lacking as a film to itself. - Colbybryant.com EDIT

B+ 59% Face (2002) Bertha Bay-Sa Pan gets good performances -- notably from Ling, who convincingly evolves from mixed-up coed to successful businesswoman. - E! Online EDIT

B- 69% Brothers in Arms (2003) Serviceable, not high ranking. - E! Online EDIT

C 45% Redacted (2007) De Palma's indignation is palpable, but he shoots himself in the filmmaking foot with a showy, self-conscious style that's more about the medium than the message. - E! Online EDIT

C+ 74% Conversations With Other Women (2006) It's hard to imagine a Gallic film would make such an issue of Carter's character being over the hill at 40 or straight-facedly claiming that Eckhart is fat by any reasonable definition. - E! Online EDIT

C+ 90% Half Nelson (2006) Here's a good rule of thumb: When you have 30 minutes worth of material, don't try to stretch it out to an hour and a half. Please. - E! Online EDIT
Read More | Posted Aug 25, 2006
B- 45% Miami Vice (2006) Throwing in several snarly baddies and lots of speeding boats and planes and cars -- plus, a cool climactic shootout -- Mann's the man for creating foreboding environments and intense action sequences. - E! Online EDIT
Read More | Posted Jul 28, 2006
A- 91% Little Miss Sunshine (2006) Consistently fresh and gut-bustingly funny. - E! Online EDIT
Read More | Posted Jul 27, 2006
C+ 74% Monster House (2006) Monster House tries to straddle the line between childhood and puberty to little effect; it's adult enough to hint at consequence, but not enough to follow through. - E! Online EDIT
Read More | Posted Jul 21, 2006
C+ 19% Shadowboxer (2005) The artificially staged and lush visuals are at such odds with the reserved, subtle performances that you'll wish director Lee Daniels had done away with the pretense and just pointed the camera at the actors and yelled 'Action!' - E! Online EDIT
Read More | Posted Jul 20, 2006
B- 40% My Super Ex-Girlfriend (2006) There's no real insight into relationships, or superheroes for that matter, just a pleasant enough date movie for geeks -- and the guys who love them. - E! Online EDIT
Read More | Posted Jul 20, 2006
B+ 63% Clerks II (2006) Clerks II is much better than most might expect, a sign that the slacker flag may be slightly older and slightly wiser, but is still flying high. - E! Online EDIT
Read More | Posted Jul 20, 2006
B- 25% Lady in the Water (2006) There's something exhilarating yet corny about watching all the pieces snap into place, even if you saw the pattern a mile away. It feels like you had to figure out some great mystery, even if M. Night did all the work for you. - E! Online EDIT

C+ 12% Little Man (2006) We went to this movie to laugh. Instead, we left yearning for a baby to cuddle. Ew. - E! Online EDIT
Read More | Posted Jul 15, 2006
B+ 81% Once in a Lifetime: The Extraordinary Story of the New York Cosmos (2006) A spot-on goal. - E! Online EDIT
Read More | Posted Jul 14, 2006
C 22% The Oh in Ohio (2006) The OH In Ohio deserves credit for bringing up some sexual-experimentation taboos, but since the film never does more than nimbly skirt them rather than challenge them head-on, the proceedings are ho-hum. - E! Online EDIT

B 20% You, Me and Dupree (2006) Third wheel's a charm when the person happens to be Owen Wilson, indulging us yet again with his lovable-slacker persona. - E! Online EDIT
Read More | Posted Jul 13, 2006
C 67% A Scanner Darkly (2006) Very ambitious and only mildly engaging. - E! Online EDIT
Read More | Posted Jul 7, 2006
A- 53% Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest (2006) The filmmakers stuck that mushy stuff on the back burner in favor of more cool things to keep your inner eight-year-old jumping up and down in your seat. Yo ho ho! - E! Online EDIT
Read More | Posted Jul 6, 2006
B- 52% Strangers with Candy (2005) This prequel doesn't take it much further than the expected offbeat grossness, strident political incorrectness and moments of pleasing -- if uncomfortable -- weirdness. - E! Online EDIT
Read More | Posted Jul 1, 2006
C 38% Wassup Rockers (2006) The movie looks great, but there's not much to it. - E! Online EDIT
Read More | Posted Jun 30, 2006
B 75% The Devil Wears Prada (2006) [Streep] chows down on this meaty role with relish and smartly dimensionalizes her demonic diva (some sympathy for the Devil?), so she's both satisfyingly ruthless and scarifyingly real. - E! Online EDIT

A 89% Who Killed the Electric Car? (2006) ... entertains and educates at the same time. - E! Online EDIT
Read More | Posted Jun 27, 2006
B+ 75% Superman Returns (2006) When the film lets Superman do his thing, it really flies, with thrilling action sequences and a fanboy's sense of what the Man Of Steel can really do. - E! Online EDIT

A- 95% Wordplay (2006) Word nerds get their props in this gleefully geeked-out doc. - E! Online EDIT
Read More | Posted Jun 24, 2006
B 69% Leonard Cohen: I'm Your Man (2006) Leonard Cohen, the darkly rumbling hipster-Buddhist-poet-troubadour gets his own loving tribute in this concert film/testimonial. - E! Online EDIT
Read More | Posted Jun 23, 2006
B 85% The Road To Guantanamo (2006) It's an important story to tell, but the execution isn't all it could be. We'd like to give the Gitmo parts an A and the rest a C-, but that averages out to an overall B. - E! Online EDIT

C+ 33% Click (2006) Believe it or not, the gross out jokes won't leave a bad taste in the mouth; the gushy life lessons will. - E! Online EDIT

C- 28% Waist Deep (2006) Waist Deep turns out to be a shallow waste. - E! Online EDIT
Read More | Posted Jun 22, 2006
C 36% The Lake House (2006) Bullock and Reeves have appealing chemistry and some nice tearjerker moments, but audiences should speed by this House on their way elsewhere. - E! Online EDIT
Read More | Posted Jun 15, 2006
C- 18% Loverboy (2006) Sedgwick does her best with the material, but the script is enamored with cloying dialogue and irritating voiceover, and Bacon's direction relies on shtick and gimmicks. We got no love for Loverboy. - E! Online EDIT
Read More | Posted Jun 15, 2006
B- 38% The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift (2006) Depending on your appetite for great stunts and bad drama, you'll either find this full-bore entertainment or just fully boring. - E! Online EDIT
Read More | Posted Jun 15, 2006
C 40% Nacho Libre (2006) We love pratfalls and physical humor, but Libre isn't a comedy vehicle. It just sits there, making you wish Pedro or Uncle Rico would blast into the scene and make something happen. Tragically, they don't. - E! Online EDIT
Read More | Posted Jun 15, 2006
D 11% Garfield: A Tail of Two Kitties (2006) Cat fanciers and five-year-olds will have a great time, but everyone else will likely find themselves wishing they'd buried this one in the litter box. - E! Online EDIT
Read More | Posted Jun 15, 2006
B+ 87% The Heart of the Game (2005) the real star of the show is Resler himself -- a sports fanatic whose commitment to the game he loves changes the lives of the girls who play for him. - E! Online EDIT
Read More | Posted Jun 9, 2006
B+ 82% A Prairie Home Companion (2006) In the end, the movie's wistful, warm-hearted ways win its audience over to the light side, just like Keillor wants it. - E! Online EDIT
Read More | Posted Jun 8, 2006
C 74% Cars (2006) Thank God for the technical glory of Pixar, because if we had to rely on script and performances, Cars would crash and burn. - E! Online EDIT
Read More | Posted Jun 8, 2006
C- 27% The Omen (2006) You'd think they could have delivered the end of the world with a bang instead of a yawn. - E! Online EDIT
Read More | Posted Jun 6, 2006
B+ 34% The Break-Up (2006) An eye for the devil in the details gives the story its heart -- a broken heart, but that's better than none at all. - E! Online EDIT
Read More | Posted Jun 1, 2006
A- 80% District B13 (Banlieue 13) (2006) A die-hard, kinetically charged action film with the kind of shocks and starts that feel truly earned: for once, here's something you might not have seen before, and with no strings attached. - E! Online EDIT
Read More | Posted Jun 1, 2006
C 25% Peaceful Warrior (2006) If you're looking for earnest wisdoms delivered with all the subtlety of a sledgehammer to the skull, look no further than the screen adaptation of Dan Millman's self-help bestseller, The Way of the Peaceful Warrior. - E! Online EDIT
Read More | Posted Jun 1, 2006
A- 93% An Inconvenient Truth (2006) A stern warning and a call to arms, a must-see for anyone who hopes to save the world from ignorance and inaction. - E! Online EDIT
