Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
1/4 12% The Darkest Hour (2011) "Darkest Hour'' doesn't have even as much character as those Discover commercials.‐ Boston Globe

1/4 11% Alvin and the Chipmunks: Chipwrecked (2011) You know there is something wrong with a movie when even David Cross in a giant pelican suit isn't funny.‐ Boston Globe

1/4 0% Echelon Conspiracy (2009) Combines a righteous message about out-of-control government surveillance with the old computer-gone-haywire plot to make - well, not very much, actually.‐ Boston Globe

2.5/4 67% Norman (2011) Byrd and Jenkins earn the film its critical points, but the screenplay has too many moments that feel network-TV-bland.‐ Boston Globe

1.5/4 24% Apollo 18 (2011) For most horror fans it will be kind of a snooze.‐ Boston Globe

2/4 60% Second Skin (2008) Most of the movie's revelations will be old hat to anyone who's paid modest attention to pop culture for the last 10 or 15 years.‐ Boston Globe

2/4 81% Under Our Skin (2008) Heartbreaking stories of patients suffering life-shattering illness make "Under Our Skin'' compelling. It would have been an even better movie if the filmmakers had been more diligent in following the money.‐ Boston Globe

2/4 No Score Yet A Man Among Giants (2009) Tunstall is a raw character, a troubled unit. It's not quite clear what Webber and Lewis are.‐ Boston Globe

2/4 47% La Fille de Monaco (The Girl from Monaco) (2009) The Girl From Monaco doesn't seem to know whether it wants to be a sprightly sex comedy or an enigmatic little thriller. Unfortunately, it's neither very funny nor very thrilling.‐ Boston Globe

2/4 15% Dragonball Evolution (2009) The giddy, anything-goes spirit of Japanese manga comics and Hong Kong martial arts flicks animates Dragonball Evolution. Not enough to make it a good movie, mind you, but enough so you won't hate yourself if you sit through it with the kids.‐ Boston Globe

1/4 29% Underworld: The Rise of the Lycans (2009) Director Patrick Tatopoulos was responsible for the creature effects in the two earlier installments, but he's not great at staging fights or directing actors.‐ Boston Globe

2.5/4 50% We are Wizards (2008) The documentary sweetly focuses our attention on the way human creativity transforms everything around it. Often in the nuttiest of ways, true. But still, it's a good thing.‐ Boston Globe

2/4 50% Traces of the Trade: A Story From the Deep North (2008) It would be as funny as a Christopher Guest mockumentary if it weren't also so sad.‐ Boston Globe

3/4 88% It Always Rains on Sunday (1947) This is a mostly forgotten gem.‐ Boston Globe
