T-Meter Title | Year
81% Star Wars: Episode VI - Return of the Jedi (1983) Though slow to pick up the pace and saddled with an anticlimatic sequence at the finish, Jedi is nonetheless reasonably fast paced for its 133-minute length, a visual treat throughout. - Variety EDIT

95% Star Wars: Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back (1980) The Empire Strikes Back is a worthy sequel to Star Wars, equal in both technical mastery and characterization, suffering only from the familiarity with the effects generated in the original and imitated too much by others. - Variety EDIT

88% Terms of Endearment (1983) Brooks' dialog is wonderful throughout and all the characters carry off their assignments beautifully, even down to Danny De Vito and Norman Bennett as MacLaine's other suffering suitors. - Variety EDIT

60% Out of Africa (1985) Maybe the problem of the pacing is simply the nature of the beast these days with expensive period pieces. Once the difficult details are all in place, it may be too much to expect a director to resist milking every scene for more than it's worth. - Variety EDIT
