Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
94% Spielberg (2017) For all its sweep, Spielberg the documentary succeeds most distinctively where Mr. Spielberg the director has: accessing the child in its subject.‐ New York Times

91% You Don't Know Jack (2010) You Don't Know Jack may be a film about the case for making dying patients comfortable. But admirably, it recognizes that thinking about this, or watching, should be discomfiting.‐ TIME Magazine

36% Sharknado 3: Oh Hell No! (2015) In the end, Sharknado 3-like the CGI monsters that are its true stars-is the beast that it is: single-minded, greedy and ravenous. But for all that, it can still be a lovely creature.‐ TIME Magazine

59% Peter Pan Live! (2014) Technically and visually, Peter Pan Live! delivered. The smartest thing the production did was to be unashamedly stagey.‐ TIME Magazine

94% The Normal Heart (2014) Some 30 years later, this movie-strident, passionate, frenetic, and aching-is a reminder, as Memorial Day weekend begins the summer, of all those empty spots the plague left on the beach.‐ TIME Magazine

82% Mitt (2014) Anyone who followed the '08 and '12 elections will not be surprised by how Mitt's story plays out. But it's an interesting footnote, a spin-free picture of the personal cost of campaigning; I found it humanly sympathetic regardless of political sympathies.‐ TIME Magazine

100% The Loving Story (2012) A low-key but moving documentary about two low-key people and their moving struggle.‐ TIME Magazine

88% Crossfire Hurricane (2012) It's not a revelation, but it's an intimate story of the band, with performance sequences that show how five guys-in different lineups -- came together and made an entity of pure fire and sex.‐ TIME Magazine

86% George Harrison: Living In The Material World (2011) Perhaps all things must pass, but I would not pass this one up.‐ TIME Magazine

66% Game Change (2012) It all feels like piling on - the campaign movie as blooper reel.‐ TIME Magazine
