Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
69% The Runaways (2010) The audience is meant to relate to Jett's indignation-the band's success should hinge on their sound, not their looks-but it feels like a bogus position, since we, in watching the scene on the lawn, have been made complicit in Cherie's objectification.‐ Newsweek

68% Life During Wartime (2010) Helen may not be for everyone, but to at least some of us, she's irresistible.‐ Newsweek

72% I Love You Phillip Morris (2010) The movie wants us to overlook its implausibility by insisting that it's all true. We believe it, we just don't care.‐ Newsweek

92% Another Year (2010) There is something radical in the way Leigh creates such an intimate, closely observed portrait of a marriage and then essentially takes it for granted, looking elsewhere for the drama to propel the narrative.‐ Newsweek

74% The Way Back (2011) ... a placid, almost pleasant film, so reluctant to offend that it fails to engage.‐ Newsweek

81% Handsome Harry (2010) ... it's nice to see men even acknowledging the fact that they are no more impervious to the effects of time than women, and far preferable to watching actors seeming not to notice that their female costars are now young enough to be their granddaughters.‐ Newsweek

57% The Freebie (2010) Low concept, maybe, but still something to talk about at your next dinner party.‐ Newsweek

62% Howl (2010) Great art transcends its creator. In this case, it also lays the foundation for a great film.‐ Newsweek

92% Hype! (1996) Hype wants you to think that a few interviews with some less popular bands and some poorly shot concert footage lend the film an insider legitimacy and credibility that excuse it from the same accountability it demands from other media.‐

41% Dinner for Schmucks (2010) Though the premise of Dinner for Schmucks is deeply cruel, we are supposed to laugh, because we trust that by the closing credits the characters will have matured into upstanding men.‐ Newsweek

80% Cyrus (2010) Cyrus successfully walks the line between dark comedy and scary movie, thanks to the performances by Hill, Reilly, and Tomei, which are uniformly great.‐ Newsweek

80% Daddy Longlegs (2010) Daddy Longlegs may shock you, but it will also make you reexamine your ideas about parenthood, and what it means to be a father.‐ Newsweek

95% The Class (2008) The Class isn't a documentary, but the scenes have the loose, slow-cooked feel of a director turning on a camera and waiting to see what happens -- think Mike Leigh meets Frederick Wiseman.‐ Newsweek

77% Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull (2008) Spielberg is an efficient, consummately competent director, and the action sequences deliver exactly what's promised, if nothing more.‐ Newsweek

67% The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian (2008) Under all the gimmickry and effects, there's a nice story to tell -- as anyone who has read the books knows.‐ Newsweek

88% Gridlock'd (1997) A surprisingly light-hearted comedy about what happens when two self-imposed exiles from society decide to go straight and look to the system for a little help.‐
