Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
B 81% Priceless (2006) the film can't match Breakfast at Tiffany's desperation for true love once it's actually found and can't match the stakes that make that classic's conclusion one of the great romantic endings in film history.‐ Trades

B 77% Cloverfield (2008) the choice you guys made to basically mimic, shot-for-shot, footage from 9-11 of a falling building with the following cloud of smoke and dust and shots of people fleeing for their lives, is utterly insensitive and incredibly offensive to this born and br‐ Trades

b- 60% 300 (2007) "300" is a visual masterpiece. Style as far as the widescreen canvas could reach. So much style that it drowns the heart of the story no matter how loud Leonidas (Gerard Butler) screams passionately‐ Trades

A- 84% Paprika (2006) a smart, tense, thrill-ride of a movie. This dream noir was fascinating!‐ Trades

A- 77% Rocky Balboa (2006) This is a good, solid, moral film. Stallone may not be the greatest writer in the world, but this screenplay is sincere in a way the previous four sequels have missed. It's interesting that this film doesn't have a number attached to it, because it might‐ Trades

C+ 25% The Da Vinci Code (2006) For years I've been saying that Ron Howard is a good director and not a great one. He's not equal to those that some might consider his peers.‐ Trades

C- 73% Flags of Our Fathers (2006) It tries to paint the moment as more human than heroic. And I get this. But the fact remains, that even though that particular second moment wasn't necessarily heroic, everything that led up to it was. Clint, these guys ARE heroes. They bled for this coun‐ Trades

B+ 54% Marie Antoinette (2006) As to the naysayers? Let them eat popcorn.‐ Trades

C 91% Little Miss Sunshine (2006) Don't believe the hype, folks. "Little Miss Sunshine" is a farcical update of "National Lampoon's Vacation" and not much more.‐ Trades

A- 75% Superman Returns (2006) "Superman Returns" might have just outdone the original.‐ Trades

A- 82% Sketches of Frank Gehry (2006) Pollack understands and relates to Gehry as an accomplished artist, and that is so important for truly trying to understand this man for more than just his work alone. These are not two guys who are struggling to get their art created and accepted. They a‐ Trades

A 73% V for Vendetta (2006) First-time director James McTeigue does a great job of pacing the film and making the climax feel completely satisfying visually and emotionally.‐ Trades

C+ 85% The 40 Year Old Virgin (2005) If you're looking for a laugh, there's a chuckle or two to be had, but I don't foresee classic status for this one.‐ Trades

A- 92% Grizzly Man (2005) Treadwell and Herzog are kindred spirits in a way. Capturing unique images is important to Herzog. Like Treadwell wants to be the guardian of bears, Herzog wants to be the guardian of film.‐ Trades
