Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
3.5/4 94% Best Worst Thing That Ever Could Have Happened... (2016) Funnily enough, there may be more poignancy in this heart-piercing anatomy of a flop than the original musical was able to muster. ‐ Washington Post

1.5/4 48% Almost Christmas (2016) Is it a good movie? Not particularly. ‐ Washington Post
Posted Nov 10, 2016
2/4 82% Ouija: Origin of Evil (2016) Conjures shivers worthy of Halloween. ‐ Washington Post

12% Delgo (2008) Although the film may be too violent for kids younger than 10 and too storybook for teens, it is a tale of mythic pretensions and can be quite stunning. ‐ Washington Post
Posted Dec 12, 2008
12% The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor (2008) Tiresome and messy, The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor borrows mightily from the Indiana Jones franchise and various martial-arts films, but it doesn't do what those films did nearly as well. ‐ Washington Post
Posted Jul 31, 2008
0% Superbabies: Baby Geniuses 2 (2004) Apart from Jon Voight, slumming and turning in a rather droll, if lonely, performance as the German-accented villain, the movie amounts to cynical, cutesy claptrap. ‐ Seattle Post-Intelligencer
Posted Mar 8, 2007
22% Barnyard (2006) Kids 8 and older may laugh now and again at this ill-conceived animated comic fable about barnyard animals who party like frat boys when the farmer isn't looking, but it surely doesn't earn the laughs through good storytelling or beautiful animation. ‐ Washington Post

73% Sky High (2005) Director Mike Mitchell deftly blends two genres -- the high school romance and the special-effects-laden superhero comic book adaptation -- and manages to spoof yet salute both with a refreshing lack of pretension. ‐ Washington Post
Posted Jul 28, 2005
40% The Lizzie McGuire Movie (2003) A smug, cutesy music video/ fashion show for [Hilary] Duff.‐ Washington Post
Posted May 2, 2003
19% The Jungle Book 2 (2003) Likely to provide 72 minutes of enjoyment and a few scary thrills to tykes, as well as a pleasant diversion for parents.‐ Washington Post
Posted Feb 14, 2003
97% Spirited Away (2002) Like old myths and wonder tales spun afresh. ‐ Washington Post
Posted Sep 20, 2002
63% The Powerpuff Girls - The Movie (2002) For the first two-thirds of this sparklingly inventive and artful, always fast and furious tale, kids will go happily along for the ride.‐ Washington Post
Posted Jul 3, 2002
4/5 86% Lilo & Stitch (2002) Fresh and rainbowy as a midday Hawaiian sun shower.‐ Washington Post
Posted Jun 21, 2002
69% Spirit - Stallion of the Cimarron (2002) A ripping yarn with memorable characters.‐ Washington Post
Posted May 24, 2002
17% Turbo: A Power Rangers Movie (1997) A purgatory of low-budget interplanetary adventure. ‐ Washington Post
Posted Jan 22, 2002
4/5 54% Cats & Dogs (2001) A surprisingly witty and sophisticated spy movie spoof that will tickle adult pet lovers and still capture kids 6 and older with its boy-and- his-dog love story and pet slapstick.‐ Washington Post
Posted Jan 6, 2002
3.5/5 29% Max Keeble's Big Move (2001) A welcome slice of pie in the face.‐ Washington Post
Posted Oct 6, 2001
7% Mr. Nanny (1993) In its cynical blending of children, superstar, guns and comedy, Kindergarten Cop was execrable, but it was slick. Mr. Nanny isn't slick, it's sticky. ‐ Washington Post
Posted Jan 1, 2000
20% Jack Frost (1998) Formulaic and charmless! ‐ Washington Post
Posted Jan 1, 2000
77% The Adventures of Elmo in Grouchland (1999) The direction of Gary Halvorson and screenplay by Mitchell Kriegman and Joseph Mazzarino keep Elmo's adventures sparkling. ‐ Washington Post
Posted Jan 1, 2000
35% Undercover Blues (1993) The script by Ian Abrams brims with overwritten cleverness. ‐ Washington Post
Posted Jan 1, 2000
38% We're Back! A Dinosaur's Story (1993) [A] highly entertaining, relatively gentle animated feature ... ‐ Washington Post
