T-Meter Title | Year
2/5 56% The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou (2004) All the stylized performances in stylized sets work to kill the film's emotional content. It's not that we don't like the characters; it's that Anderson won't let us get involved with them, a fatal flaw in something this strenuously whimsical. - NOW Toronto EDIT

3/5 88% The Simpsons Movie (2007) The execution is reasonably funny in the hit-and-miss manner of latter-day episodes, but translating The Simpsons to the big screen is a pointless exercise. - NOW Toronto EDIT

4/5 92% The Bourne Ultimatum (2007) Director Paul Greengrass returns to guide the cast as they run furiously around the streets of London, Madrid, Tangiers and New York, and the genre material benefits greatly from his paranoid documentary style. - NOW Toronto EDIT
