Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
95% A Short Film About Love (1988) Overall, Kieslowski has crafted a compelling portrait of love, that weed that forces its strange way through life's hardest cement.‐ San Francisco Examiner

90% A Short Film About Killing (1988) One of the most horrific films you're likely to see -- and one of the most oddly didactic.‐ San Francisco Examiner

42% Bad Boys (1995) A pretty amusing shoot'em-up.‐ San Francisco Examiner

16% Godzilla (1998) Forget the plot, though: All these guys know how to do is high-tech bang-bang, and at times they do it pretty well.‐ Salon.com

98% Lawrence of Arabia (1962) This is that rare film whose weaknesses are not only swallowed up by its vast, disturbing ambition, but somehow become part of its strengths.‐ Salon.com

4/5 60% The Edge (1997) ...a solid man-against-nature tale...‐ Salon.com

3/4 87% Crimson Tide (1995) It's too slick to be truly disturbing, but it's that slickness that keeps you on the edge of your chair.‐ San Francisco Examiner

29% Village of the Damned (1995) Needless and undeveloped subplots dissipate the clean suspense of the original, and the exponential increase in violence and gore cannot conceal this.‐ San Francisco Examiner

1/4 41% Mighty Morphin Power Rangers: The Movie (1995) As a TV show, Power Rangers is merely lame. Blown up into a movie, with $40 million worth of special effects draped over the same 29-cent plot and three-for-a-nickel characters, it is positively grotesque.‐ San Francisco Examiner

46% Volcano (1997) A flatulent blast of superheated air from the seething bowels of Hollywood...‐ Salon.com

80% He Got Game (1998) He Got Game is a little too sappy to be a great movie, but it puts the ball in the hole.‐ Salon.com

90% Chungking Express (1996) A frenetic one-way ride through The Land of Vaporous Plot, with stops along the way at Irritatingly Cute Extended Metaphor City.‐ Salon.com

23% A Thousand Acres (1997) Ploddingly literal, A Thousand Acres is basically a star vehicle that relies on superior acting to redeem it. It does have superior acting, but that's not nearly enough.‐ Salon.com

2.5/4 11% Bushwhacked (1995) It ain't Shakespeare, but it's a decent pre-pube flick about a New Yawk bozo and a bunch of cute kids flopping around in the ponderosa.‐ San Francisco Examiner

92% Saving Private Ryan (1998) Using the overpowering techniques of modern film, Steven Spielberg has cut through the glory-tinged gauze that shrouds World War II to reveal its brutal reality, creating a phenomenology of violence unsurpassed in the history of cinema.‐ Salon.com

1/4 46% The Basketball Diaries (1995) The film's complete refusal to explore anything beyond Jim's collapse and redemption is both sentimental and finally uninteresting.‐ San Francisco Examiner

84% The English Patient (1996) The English Patient, the superb new film by Anthony Minghella, is that rarest of things: a film based on a great contemporary novel.‐ Salon.com

72% Beavis and Butt-head Do America (1996) Mostly, we get dumb formula, not quite ironic and self-mocking enough to be hip.‐ Salon.com

3/4 97% A Little Princess (1995) A Little Princess is a delightful film. Bring your children, or just bring yourself.‐ San Francisco Examiner

59% Prefontaine (1997) Even through Prefontaine's obviousness, we feel its force.‐ Salon.com
