Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
C- 74% Unknown White Male (2006) "The whole movie feels sorta like a snow job." ‐ Atlanta Journal-Constitution
Posted Apr 6, 2006
C+ 90% Duck Season (Temporada de patos) (2006) "Often dull dialogue and marginally interesting characters." ‐ Atlanta Journal-Constitution
Posted Apr 6, 2006
B- 74% Joyeux Noël (Merry Christmas) (2006) "Lovely and moving." ‐ Atlanta Journal-Constitution
Posted Mar 30, 2006
B 86% Thank You for Smoking (2006) "A smart-aleck satire with something on its mind is always welcome." ‐ Atlanta Journal-Constitution
Posted Mar 30, 2006
C- 7% Basic Instinct 2 (2006) "When Catherine finally picks up her beloved ice pick, it's more like she's showing you a photo of an old friend than an old potential murder weapon." ‐ Atlanta Journal-Constitution
Posted Mar 30, 2006
B- 33% Imagine Me & You (2006) "If you're in the mood for a moonstruck trifle with a drizzly London setting, this might not be such a bad choice. All that's required is that you be as open-minded as the movie is open-hearted." ‐ Atlanta Journal-Constitution
Posted Mar 25, 2006
A- 92% Fateless (2006) "Many of the images in Fateless are familiar, but they're presented so unsparingly, so uncloaked by emotion, they become freshly potent." ‐ Atlanta Journal-Constitution
Posted Mar 25, 2006
C+ 71% Mrs. Palfrey at the Claremont (2005) "A small film, done in a minor key. At times, it can be so slow it's like watching paint peel." ‐ Atlanta Journal-Constitution
Posted Mar 25, 2006
B+ 82% Tsotsi (Thug) (2006) "The picture can be squishy and obvious. Yet it works, thanks to Gavin Hood's straightforward, sensitive direction and his star's emotionally charged performance." ‐ Atlanta Journal-Constitution
Posted Mar 23, 2006
B+ 86% Following Sean (2006) "Character-driven and full of tender contradictions, the film is reminiscent of a Chekhov short story. And as such, it touches on a universality that transcends VW buses and Bush-era politics." ‐ Atlanta Journal-Constitution
Posted Mar 23, 2006
B 87% Inside Man (2006) "Nobody's on automatic here, least of all the director, who's probably delivered the most impersonal -- but smoothly Hollywood-style professional -- movie of his career." ‐ Atlanta Journal-Constitution
Posted Mar 23, 2006
B 91% After Innocence (2005) "Eye-opening." ‐ Atlanta Journal-Constitution
Posted Mar 16, 2006
B 35% Ask the Dust (2006) "Towne and cinematographer Caleb Deschanel beautifully capture Fante's city of the dispossessed, where the seasons never change." ‐ Atlanta Journal-Constitution
Posted Mar 16, 2006
C 73% V for Vendetta (2006) "The movie undercuts itself with its garishly adolescent tone." ‐ Atlanta Journal-Constitution
Posted Mar 16, 2006
D+ 33% The Libertine (2006) "The scenes between Depp and Morton throw off sparks, but the movie as a whole needs focus, oomph." ‐ Atlanta Journal-Constitution
Posted Mar 9, 2006
C+ 24% Failure to Launch (2006) "Failure to Launch isn't about story. It's about star power. Adjust your expectations accordingly." ‐ Atlanta Journal-Constitution
Posted Mar 9, 2006
F 0% At Last (2005) "You might buy it if the film convinced you this was a love story for the ages, that Sara and Mark are so made for each other it would be a crime against heaven if they weren't together. But it doesn't." ‐ Atlanta Journal-Constitution
Posted Mar 9, 2006
B+ 90% Tristram Shandy: A Cock & Bull Story (2005) "Probably the best-known but-I-digress novel in English literature, The Life and Opinions of Tristram Shandy, Gentleman, has inspired Tristram Shandy: A Cock and Bull Story, surely the best but-I-digress movie this side of Adaptation." ‐ Atlanta Journal-Constitution
Posted Mar 2, 2006
B 88% The Syrian Bride (2005) "The ensemble cast is generally strong, but [Hiam] Abbass, who played the mother of one of the suicide bombers in Paradise Now, is a standout." ‐ Atlanta Journal-Constitution
Posted Feb 23, 2006
B 25% Madea's Family Reunion (2006) "No question, Tyler Perry knows what he's doing, and he's doing it better with each movie." ‐ Atlanta Journal-Constitution
Posted Feb 23, 2006
B- 79% Why We Fight (2006) "Why We Fight has passion and ambition and research to spare. Too bad Jarecki didn't take a somewhat fresher, more balanced approach in making his case." ‐ Atlanta Journal-Constitution
Posted Feb 16, 2006
B 72% Eight Below (2006) "As magnificent as the setting is, the dogs are more so." ‐ Atlanta Journal-Constitution
Posted Feb 16, 2006
C+ 22% The Pink Panther (2006) "The prospect of reviving Peter Sellers' Pink Panther character, Inspector Jacques Clouseau, may not tickle anyone pink, but Steve Martin's version isn't nearly as bad as you'd think." ‐ Atlanta Journal-Constitution
Posted Feb 9, 2006
B- 72% Bubble (2006) "Soderbergh holds up a mirror to these lives of quiet desperation and shows us how unquiet they can be." ‐ Atlanta Journal-Constitution
Posted Feb 4, 2006
B+ 89% Caché (2005) "Politicized as it is, the movie never becomes didactic, thanks to the excellent acting and the firm, confident direction." ‐ Atlanta Journal-Constitution
Posted Feb 4, 2006
B+ 37% A Good Woman (2006) "A stunning setting, clever dialogue, gorgeous period costumes by John Bloomfield (he did last year's Being Julia) and a honey of a performance by Wilkinson as a practical man of great means who sees nothing wrong in being wanted for his money." ‐ Atlanta Journal-Constitution
Posted Feb 2, 2006
B- 61% Something New (2006) "In a racially skittish nation where the most recent studio movie about interracial relations was the abysmal Guess Who, this film has the kind of guts we rarely see in mainstream movies. And it's romantic, too." ‐ Atlanta Journal-Constitution
Posted Feb 2, 2006
C+ 42% Looking for Comedy in the Muslim World (2006) "You have to give the man credit. Brooks is willing to try anything. A lengthy routine about a botched audience-participation improvisation is as conceptually stunning as any of Andy Kaufman's flights of weirdness. But narratively it stops the movie dead." ‐ Atlanta Journal-Constitution
Posted Jan 19, 2006
B+ 76% Transamerica (2006) "In Transamerica, Felicity Huffman out-Victor/Victorias Julie Andrews in Victor/Victoria." ‐ Atlanta Journal-Constitution
Posted Jan 19, 2006
A- 77% Match Point (2005) "Match Point is Woody Allen's best picture in more than a decade -- an excellent character piece/social study that evolves into a suspense thriller with an O. Henry twist." ‐ Atlanta Journal-Constitution
Posted Jan 19, 2006
B+ 68% Before the Fall (Napola) (2004) "A fascinating look at a little-known aspect of the Nazi regime." ‐ Atlanta Journal-Constitution
Posted Jan 12, 2006
B 68% Mrs. Henderson Presents (2006) "It's an amusing and well-meaning celebration of the stiff-upper-lips that got Britain through the Blitz. And the lead acting couldn't be more nimble." ‐ Atlanta Journal-Constitution
Posted Jan 12, 2006
B+ 55% Last Holiday (2006) "She's (Queen Latifa) the unexpected and hugely effective star of Last Holiday, a pleasant trifle made far better than it should be by her effortless charm and expansive spirit." ‐ Atlanta Journal-Constitution
Posted Jan 12, 2006
C 46% Hoodwinked (2005) "The Shrek-style nudge-nudge jokes aimed at adults are tiresome." ‐ Atlanta Journal-Constitution
Posted Jan 12, 2006
C 74% The Matador (2006) "A colorful, freewheeling tale that never gets beneath its darkly comic surface." ‐ Atlanta Journal-Constitution
Posted Jan 5, 2006
C+ 51% Ellie Parker (2005) "The picture looks cheap and feels stretched." ‐ Atlanta Journal-Constitution
Posted Jan 5, 2006
B 44% Casanova (2005) "This is easily the liveliest Hallstrom has been in almost a decade." ‐ Atlanta Journal-Constitution
Posted Jan 5, 2006
B+ 57% Breakfast on Pluto (2005) "Perhaps too audacious for some and too coy for others, Breakfast on Pluto is one of those mercurial movies where you really have no idea where it'll take you next. Like its star, it's smart, mischievous and fearless." ‐ Atlanta Journal-Constitution
Posted Jan 1, 2006
B+ 75% Nine Lives (2005) "Some parts are stronger than others, but as a fleshed-out artistic vision, Nine Lives works remarkably well." ‐ Atlanta Journal-Constitution
Posted Dec 31, 2005
D 20% Rumor Has It (2005) "Aniston hasn't had a great 2005." ‐ Atlanta Journal-Constitution
Posted Dec 22, 2005
B 78% Munich (2005) "Spielberg asks the questions with great skill and greater sorrow. But he doesn't have the answers. Perhaps no one does." ‐ Atlanta Journal-Constitution
Posted Dec 22, 2005
B- 29% Fun With Dick and Jane (2005) "Finally, some escapist fun to get us through the holidays." ‐ Atlanta Journal-Constitution
Posted Dec 21, 2005
C 50% The Producers (2005) "It's not all it was on stage and it's not all it could be on film. The result is a often jolly, highly-polished compromise, which can't be what anyone intended. Or wanted." ‐ Atlanta Journal-Constitution
Posted Dec 18, 2005
B 87% Brokeback Mountain (2005) "Brokeback Mountain is a love story, but that's not all it is. In some ways, the movie is as much about the way we were as the way they are." ‐ Atlanta Journal-Constitution
Posted Dec 15, 2005
C 35% Memoirs of a Geisha (2005) "You've always got something to look at -- whether its Sayuri's exquisitely painted face or the perfect twirl of a gorgeously flowered umbrella. But the storytelling is soap-opera banal." ‐ Atlanta Journal-Constitution
Posted Dec 15, 2005
C+ 52% The Family Stone (2005) "The plot is motored more by convenience than credible character behavior and for much of the time, the cockles of our hearts remain unwarmed." ‐ Atlanta Journal-Constitution
Posted Dec 15, 2005
A- 72% Syriana (2005) "A gripping and daringly complex movie about How Things Get Done these days in the blood-drenched world of oil, politics and religion." ‐ Atlanta Journal-Constitution
Posted Dec 8, 2005
B 94% Ushpizin (2005) "An unexpected delight from an unlikely source, Ushpizin is the first feature film set inside the closed community of Jerusalem's ultra-Orthodox Jews." ‐ Atlanta Journal-Constitution
Posted Dec 1, 2005
C+ 68% Protocols of Zion (2005) "The new documentary Protocols of Zion would be almost funny if it weren't so downright disgusting. And depressing." ‐ Atlanta Journal-Constitution
Posted Dec 1, 2005
B- 77% Balzac and the Little Chinese Seamstress (2005) "[A] tribute to the transforming power of books." ‐ Atlanta Journal-Constitution
Posted Nov 23, 2005
D- 46% The Ice Harvest (2005) "Neither funny enough nor black enough, The Ice Harvest is a lazy, haphazard picture that spins its wheels like a Kia on an icy road." ‐ Atlanta Journal-Constitution
