Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
2/4 47% 96 Minutes (2012) The director seems to be at odds with her own film, like a well-meaning but controlling parent hell-bent on choosing a child's college, major, and fraternity for them. ‐ Slant Magazine
Posted Apr 24, 2012
8% The Babymakers (2012) Spends painfully long minutes on one poorly written and ill-conceived gag after another. ‐ House Next Door
Posted Mar 18, 2012
93% Indie Game: The Movie (2012) An extremely polished and absorbing documentary profiling a handful of ambitious independent game developers. ‐ House Next Door
Posted Mar 18, 2012
55% V/H/S (2012) The uniqueness of each segment's topic, while feeling slightly like filmmakers making sure not to step on each other's toes, adds to the suspense and fun of V/H/S. ‐ House Next Door

42% 3, 2, 1... Frankie Go Boom (2012) Any effort by Roberts to cultivate the romance into something more engaging could have elevated a nonetheless strong comedy. ‐ House Next Door
Posted Mar 13, 2012
74% The Do-Deca-Pentathlon (2012) An entertaining look back at what kind of filmmakers the Duplass brothers were four years ago, though I'd much rather be seeing what kind they are now. ‐ House Next Door
Posted Mar 13, 2012
85% 21 Jump Street (2012) A self-aware buddy-cop action-comedy seeking not to spoof, satirize, or deconstruct its genre, but to embrace its stereotypes. ‐ House Next Door
Posted Mar 13, 2012
88% The Turin Horse (2012) Béla Tarr effectively reassigns Nietzsche's crushing pity and despair from the equine to the driver, his daughter, and the countless others like them who exist more out of habit than with purpose. ‐ House Next Door
Posted Oct 12, 2011
79% Shame (2011) Fassbender's performance singlehandedly saves Shame from complete flaccidity. ‐ House Next Door
Posted Oct 9, 2011
96% The Kid with a Bike (2012) The Dardennes' decision not to develop Samantha beyond a blank slate is, I'm afraid, a misstep that occasionally becomes distracting, and prevents the film from achieving greatness as a truly rich, sweet, and engagingly tale of social realism. ‐ House Next Door
Posted Oct 7, 2011
66% Insidious (2011) Even from its first scenes it's clear that Insidious desperately needs to hit the editing treadmill. ‐ House Next Door
