Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
3/4 67% Brick Lane (2008) Though some of the journeys lead to unhappy endings, Nazneen's story offers us a resolution as satisfying as any contemporary drama has given us this year.‐ Tulsa World

3.5/4 86% Mongol (2008) For its two-hour running time, Mongol makes you believe that you're in the company of the future Khan and his companions as they struggle to endure the callousness of the times and the savage environment.‐ Tulsa World

4/5 96% Unforgiven (1992) It's not a movie for kids, but it's a fine movie for any adult who doesn't mind thinking a little after the hot lead has flown.‐ Tulsa World

3/4 92% Frost/Nixon (2008) The film's success ultimately depends on the byplay between Sheen and Langella, and they're more than up to the task. Langella, in fact, may have just delivered a performance for the ages -- and how often do those come along?‐ Tulsa World

2.5/4 80% Un Secret (A Secret) (2008) It's such a handsomely mounted and well-acted piece that few serious cinema-goers are likely to mind the circuitous path it takes in getting there.‐ Tulsa World

2.5/4 87% Meduzot (Jellyfish) (2008) Lacking the minimal jellyfish connective tissue required by even a quasi-anthology like this, the movie as a whole just lies there like the limp wet invertebrate for which it's named.‐ Tulsa World

2.5/4 22% Scooby-Doo 2: Monsters Unleashed (2004) Those paying attention will note that Linda Cardellini comes close to stealing the whole movie out from under her costars.‐ Tulsa World

2.5/4 79% Baghead (2008) It's the movie's seeming lack of structure that keeps us off-guard, and that's what makes the whole messy enterprise so genially compelling.‐ Tulsa World

3/4 85% Ghost Town (2008) Based on the ad campaign, it would be easy to pigeonhole "Ghost Town" as another romantic comedy with a twist, but it's much more and much better than that.‐ Tulsa World

2/4 42% Death Race (2008) For those looking for mindless violent entertainment, it's just about good enough to fill the bill. But they did miss a bet by leaving out Sgt. Fury.‐ Tulsa World

2/4 34% TMNT (2007) Kids will undoubtedly want to check out these new improved Turtles . . . and a lot of parents will probably be glad to have, uh, shelled out the extra bucks to relive their own childhoods alongside them.‐ Tulsa World

2/4 27% Fantastic Four (2005) Aided by largely credible special effects, the four stars of Fantastic Four manage to make their movie worth seeing and give us reason to be optimistic for a more cohesive sequel.‐ Tulsa World

2.5/4 60% 300 (2007) If you're in the mood for dumb, rousing, visceral excitement, you're not going to find anything on the big screen right now to rival it.‐ Tulsa World

2/4 48% Aqua Teen Hunger Force Colon Movie Film for Theaters (2007) The Aqua Teen Hunger Force movie isn't going to be for most people, but those who were already converts will probably find it tasty enough to go back for seconds.‐ Tulsa World

82% X-Men (2000) X-Men is a terrific piece of summer entertainment that's going to heat up the box office like a mutant's eye beams.‐ Tulsa World

3/4 85% X2: X-Men United (2003) This satisfying new installment looks like just the thing to get the summer blockbuster season off to a supercharged start.‐ Tulsa World

3/4 90% Spider-Man (2002) Even with its flaws it's a satisfying adventure that manages to appeal to the head and the heart even when it's taking your breath away.‐ Tulsa World

93% Spider-Man 2 (2004) Emotionally deeper, better looking and twice as exciting as the blockbuster that kicked off the franchise two years ago, Spider-Man 2 just became the new gold standard for the current crop of super-hero movies.‐ Tulsa World

9% Catwoman (2004) Halle Berry is a lovely woman with charisma to burn and definite acting ability -- but even the best actors sometimes need to be told when they're making fools of themselves.‐ Tulsa World
