T-Meter Title | Year
24% Bewitched (2005) Ephron's latest begins as a promising soufflé of a movie and becomes a muddled mess. - Eclipse Magazine EDIT

71% William Shakespeare's The Merchant of Venice (2004) Radford's engaging "Merchant" challenges modernized, experimental Shakespeare. His characters are outfitted in corsets and tunics; they speak in flawless verse. - Eclipse Magazine EDIT

80% The Manchurian Candidate (2004) Jonathan Demme's "The Manchurian Candidate" explodes on the screen in red, white, and blue- the kind of mock patriotism that can only add to "Farenheit 911"'s stir. - Eclipse Magazine EDIT

B+ 43% The Clearing (2004) Despite moments of thriller-esque intensity, "The Clearing" is far more of a realistic character study/romance than a hollywoodized action pic. - Eclipse Magazine EDIT

B 26% The Stepford Wives (2004) If the 1975 adaptation "The Stepford Wives" is the film equivalent of black coffee, director Frank Oz's version seems chock full of cream and sugar. - Eclipse Magazine EDIT

D+ 44% The Day After Tomorrow (2004) "The Core." "Armageddon." These are disastrously bad disaster films "The Day After Tomorrow" has the under-whelming task of topping- and it doesn't raise the bar one bit. - Eclipse Magazine EDIT

B 55% The Ladykillers (2004) More amusing than laugh-out loud funny, "The Ladykillers" may be entertaining, but it's definitely flawed. - Eclipse Magazine EDIT

D 22% Taking Lives (2004) A good thriller ought to make you leave the theater frightened and exhilarated. I left the theater hoping Jolie would someday make another decent movie. - Eclipse Magazine EDIT

B+ 65% Spartan (2004) Mamet creates a slew of characters that sometimes play like animated Walmart dolls. Despite this, the plot is just terrific- taut, tense, and constantly exciting. - Eclipse Magazine EDIT

C+ 1% Twisted (2004) In essence, "Twisted" is yet another installment in the Ashley Judd " I know how to kick some ***" series. - Eclipse Magazine EDIT

B- 23% Dirty Dancing: Havana Nights (2004) Expecting a total debacle, I'll admit to being pleasantly surprised by how enjoyable the movie was- up until its lackluster finale. - Eclipse Magazine EDIT

13% Welcome to Mooseport (2004) "Mooseport" isn't nearly as good as it could have been, and I couldn't help blaming that on Ray Romano's dreadfully unfunny presence. - Eclipse Magazine EDIT

B+ 72% Girl With a Pearl Earring (2004) Has done a meticulous job, creating a repressed Dutch world in which unveiled hair is more erotic than the standard nude scene. - Eclipse Magazine EDIT

A- 75% Big Fish (2003) Burton's "Big Fish" Is An Exciting Fantasy for the Entire Family. - Eclipse Magazine EDIT

C+ 72% Something's Gotta Give (2003) If life was like a Nancy Meyers' movie, it would be glossy, gift rapped, and always have a happy ending. It would also offer no surprises. - Eclipse Magazine EDIT
