Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
1.5/4 48% Until the Light Takes Us (2009) Their dedication to giving the players their moment on the podium prevented Aites and Ewell from asking provocative questions, or, it would seem, any questions at all.‐ Boston Globe

1.5/4 50% Christmas on Mars (2008) Warmth and humor, Flaming Lips calling cards, are nowhere to be found.‐ Boston Globe

3/4 74% Kurt Cobain: About a Son (2007) Kurt Cobain About a Son is a lovely piece of filmmaking, a gripping, minimalist marriage of sound and image.‐ Boston Globe

3.5/4 100% Fearless Freaks (2005) Cobbles together an appropriately whacked-out portrait of the band's surreal and haphazard career trajectory.‐ Boston Globe

3.5/4 88% MC5: A True Testimonial (2002) Thompson has lassoed the short, wild, luminous life of a rock band that crystallized a mirror-image cultural moment.‐ Boston Globe

3/4 54% Steve Earle: Just an American Boy (2003) Earle's song introductions, like those of his mentors Townes Van Zandt and Guy Clark, are as meaty, pointed, and touching as the tunes themselves, and his spoken words -- full of humor and humanity -- are the heart of the film.‐ Boston Globe

3/4 83% Gigantic (2002) Generous helpings of performance footage and band interviews will gratify the group's die-hard cult of fans. But there's stuff of interest here for general audiences, too.‐ Boston Globe

1.5/4 26% How High (2001) The biggest problem, ironically, is that even though the plot and the action center on smoking pot, it's not enough of a stoner flick.‐ Boston Globe
Posted Dec 21, 2001
7% Glitter (2001) Fueled by formula, riddled with cliches, mindless from beginning to end.‐ Boston Globe
Posted Sep 21, 2001
72% Happy Accidents (2001) A quirky little film that delves deeply into our preconceived notions of reality and closely held myths of love.‐ Boston Globe
Posted Aug 24, 2001
47% The Princess Diaries (2001) The most surprising thing about this movie is just how little humor or heart it has.‐ Boston Globe
Posted Aug 3, 2001
23% Deuce Bigalow: Male Gigolo (1999) Just saying the name of this movie makes you feel stupid.‐ Boston Globe
Posted Jan 1, 2000
2/4 62% The Tigger Movie (2000) The Tigger Movie falls short of recent children's animated features.‐ Boston Globe
