T-Meter Title | Year
44% Cowboys & Aliens (2011) It's fun to think about what Cowboys & Aliens might have been if any creativity had crept past the title page. - Slate EDIT

60% Scream 4 (2011) Craven guides us expertly down a series of blind, bloody alleys, a journey that's more pleasurable than frustrating. On account of his steady hand, the last act is as good as could be expected: skillfully conceived and entertaining in its preposterousness - Slate EDIT

31% The Warrior's Way (2010) The Warrior's Way never achieves awesomeness, mostly because it never fully embraces its elementary-school playground aesthetic. - Slate EDIT

72% Megamind (2010) Mostly, the jokes and the recurrent attempts to tweak the superhero genre serve as a reminder that somebody else has already done it better. - Slate EDIT

78% The Other Guys (2010) There's just a bit too much formula and not quite enough insane-asylum lunacy. - Slate EDIT

66% The Blind Side (2009) The problem with a story that's almost too good to be true is that someone in Hollywood will try to make it better. - Slate EDIT

71% More Than a Game (2009) While More Than a Game succeeds in depicting the friends' deep mutual affection, the edges of the LeBron James story are too often smoothed to a dull, inspirational point. - Slate EDIT

89% Zombieland (2009) Zombieland, with its belching, goo-spewing undead, looks at the scenery of a video game through a fanboy's eyes. - Slate EDIT

40% Beverly Hills Chihuahua (2008) Beverly Hills Chihuahua isn't terrible. OK, it's kind of terrible, but it's a talking-dog movie, and anyone who goes to a talking-dog movie without being prepared to step in poop deserves to ruin his shoes. - Slate EDIT

26% Eagle Eye (2008) Eagle Eye feels less like a vehicle for an action hero than the latest in a series of national focus groups to determine LaBeouf's commercial viability. - Slate EDIT

2% Meet the Spartans (2008) This was the worst movie I've ever seen, so bad that I hesitate to label it a 'movie' and thus reflect shame upon the entire medium of film. - Slate EDIT

36% Art School Confidential (2006) The movie accomplishes the simple-enough task of demonstrating that art school types are pretentious and self-centered. What it fails to reveal is why anyone should care. - Slate EDIT

87% Slither (2006) There's something winning about this grab bag of orally fixated invertebrates and mucus-covered Noids. - Slate EDIT
