Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
2/4 36% Larry Crowne (2011) Tasty around the edges but disappointing in the center, Larry Crowne will meet the summer rom-com needs of many, but will not serve as a memorable addition to Hanks' legacy. ‐ Christianity Today

3/4 81% Higher Ground (2011) Some reviewers have compared Higher Ground to Robert Duvall's The Apostle (1997), and it is a similarly positive portrayal of Southern evangelical faith. ‐ Christianity Today

2.5/4 11% There Be Dragons (2011) A movie doesn't need CGI dragons to be exciting. But it does need real characters and conflict -- it needs to be a real story. Here, that story always is just beyond our grasp. ‐ Christianity Today

2/4 28% Life as We Know It (2010) Life As We Know It could be one of Holly's bakery confections; a festival of quirk around the edges and a hole in the middle. ‐ Christianity Today

2/4 55% Flipped (2010) Rob Reiner seems to be aiming for a boomer audience, but it's a relentless exercise in nostalgia -- clothes, hair styles, cars, and doo-wop soundtrack -- that feels manipulative. ‐ Christianity Today

2/4 No Score Yet Expecting Mary (2010) Despite the calculated setup and quirky characters, the film, like Juno and Bella, brings another pro-birth story to the big screen. May there be many more. ‐ Christianity Today

4/4 99% Toy Story 3 (2010) Toy Story 3 is as good as any movie Pixar Studios has made, and better than a few of them. I'd be tempted to say it's Pixar's best film, but it's a close call. ‐ Christianity Today

2/4 52% Alice in Wonderland (2010) This Alice is a dud. If you want to experience a strange, unworldly story%u2014something like Tim Burton films used to provide%u2014stay home and read the book. ‐ Christianity Today
Posted Mar 5, 2010
2/4 58% The Invention of Lying (2009) It feels, in spirit, like a fable, in the mold of films like It's a Wonderful Life or Miracle on 34th Street. I just wish it were better. ‐ Christianity Today

2/4 75% $9.99 (2008) I was intrigued to learn what the filmmakers think the meaning of life is, but the movie merely dances and alludes without coming right down to anything. ‐ Christianity Today

4/4 87% Earth (Disneynature's Earth) (Planet Earth) (2009) Earth is 85 minutes of graceful animals, scary animals, funny animals, and excruciatingly cute baby animals. A better family-friendly nature film can't be found. ‐ Christianity Today

2.5/4 39% Henry Poole Is Here (2008) A film that Christians will embrace, if only from sheer gratitude; here, at last, is a depiction of Christian faith as something other than the domain of cranks and loonies. ‐ Christianity Today
Posted Aug 15, 2008
2/4 35% Diminished Capacity (2008) I wonder if all this worked better as a book. It begins modestly interesting, but becomes merely agitated. ‐ Christianity Today
Posted Jul 10, 2008
2/4 64% Baby Mama (2008) I've sat through enough laugh-less comedies to be grateful when a movie entertains me, even temporarily%u2014but no one's going to call this film a classic. ‐ Christianity Today

2/4 77% Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day (2008) Adams can be a better actress than this, and the result is something like Who Framed Roger Rabbit?--Miss Pettigrew is a real person, and Delysia is a toon. ‐ Christianity Today

1/4 40% Bonneville (2006) The '66 Bonneville was a great car, but these talented ladies deserved a better vehicle. ‐ Christianity Today
Posted Feb 29, 2008
3/4 74% Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story (2007) If only for the music numbers, this movie deserves a standing ovation. Much of the credit goes to John C. Reilly, an actor with a rubbery face and the voice of an angel. ‐ Christianity Today

1.5/4 62% Grace Is Gone (2007) Cusack deserves high praise for his terrific work as an emotionally cold man suddenly devastated by grief, but this effort is expended on a vehicle that has little going for it in the first place. ‐ Christianity Today
