Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
100% Hearts of Darkness: A Filmmaker's Apocalypse (1991) Harrowing and funny, a fine film on its own, Hearts leaves us with a new appreciation for the Vietnam War epic it documents.‐ Washington Post

63% Bitter Moon (1992) During 2 1/2 hours of choppy waters, soured love affairs and seasickly moods, the controversial director's Lust Boat becomes the Loathe Boat. By then, it's way too late for Dramamine.‐ Washington Post

46% The Basketball Diaries (1995) A movie for masochists, an unrelentingly ugly 'Just Say No' propaganda movie, it might have been bankrolled by Nancy Reagan.‐ Washington Post

43% Timecop (1994) In spite of its glitches, Timecop is lots of fun, a blast from the past.‐ Washington Post

68% Scrooged (1988) This is not a 'good movie' -- in fact, it's a sprawling mess -- but I like it.‐ Washington Post

75% The Firm (1993) Cruise was born to play company man, and the role is an opportunity to sum up his old roles and transcend them with his most potently emotional work.‐ Washington Post

66% Maverick (1994) Affectionate, amiable, eager-to-please, in a TV-movieish sort of way.‐ Washington Post

22% Romeo Is Bleeding (1993) Romeo is most notable for being the first film of the year to cash in on post-Bobbitt fears of castrating (and worse) females.‐ Washington Post

78% A League of Their Own (1992) Marshall gums it all up in hokey sentiment.‐ Washington Post

0% Only the Strong (1993) The film is clumsily assembled and edited, heavy on the slow-mo, and its simplistic story plays like The Kids From Fame armed with very sharp knives.‐ Washington Post

10% Beverly Hills Cop III (1994) The most lackluster entry in the franchise.‐ Washington Post

96% The Wedding Banquet (Xi yan) (1993) Ang's elegantly orchestrated farce is generous with hilarious moments.‐ Washington Post

77% Sea of Love (1989) Price and director Harold Becker build in enough jumps and scares and good red herrings to be satisfying ...‐ Washington Post

7% Sister Act 2: Back in the Habit (1993) This shoddiest of sequels should be the last act for these sorry Sisters.‐ Washington Post

67% Another Woman (1988) The storytelling is fluid and dramatic -- almost theatrical -- the film glows with light and the design is economically artful.‐ Washington Post

56% The Hudsucker Proxy (1994) Clever but cold, a heartless mechanical gizmo.‐ Washington Post

68% Kiss of Death (1995) Caruso's acting is vivid, but amazingly quiet and internal, and it's fascinating to watch the kaleidoscopically conflicted emotions battle beneath his controlled surface.‐ Washington Post

75% Unlawful Entry (1992) Entry is acted more intelligently than is usual in this type of cookie-cutter shocker.‐ Washington Post

23% Dying Young (1991) Scott has Given Up On Life. You can tell from his apartment, which is nearly devoid of pop-culture clutter and kept in sepulchral shade.‐ Washington Post

85% Carnival of Souls (1962) Carnival of Souls works well enough as chill-up-the-spine cinema.‐ Washington Post
