Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
88% Norma Rae (1979) It's a dear and corny story, played with lovable grubbiness by Sally Field and Ron Leibman, but it's not about what you think.‐ Washington Post

9% The Blue Lagoon (1980) There have come to be certain conventions of the genre, and it's an annoyance that The Blue Lagoon keeps violating them.‐ Washington Post

71% Urban Cowboy (1980) It's too diluted.‐ Washington Post

74% Pretty Baby (1978) It takes a robust and humorous approach to life in a brothel, where the work done is less important than the community spirit; and "naughty" would be a far better word to describe the sex scenes, while the rest is decidedly nice.‐ Washington Post

44% Star Trek: The Motion Picture (1979) There are only so many ways to photograph black starry space and the under-bellies of spaceships, and the films that got there first used them all up.‐ Washington Post

95% Reds (1981) It is occasionally rambling and repetitious, but nearly always intelligent and engrossing.‐ Washington Post

75% The Great Muppet Caper (1981) Like its predecessor, this film is its own best fan.‐ Washington Post

90% Martin (1977) "Martin" is pretentious in a way that pornography is when it is dressed up for people who don't want to admit to their taste.‐ Washington Post

93% Napoléon (1929) Inspires that wonderfully satisfying theatrical experience of whole-heartedly cheering a hero and hissing villains, while also providing the uplift that comes from a real work of art.‐ Washington Post

69% A Little Romance (1979) The intentional comedy in the film always seems on the verge of working, but then is quickly bludgeoned to death.‐ Washington Post

78% The Revenge of the Pink Panther (1978) What fun it would be to see all those involved - including perhaps the durable Clouseau character - try something from scratch.‐ Washington Post

67% Czlowiek z Marmuru (Man of Marble) (1981) Audiences less anxious to help the film say things they want said will find this point obscured by the clumsy celebrity-fan approach employed as a dramatic device.‐ Washington Post

No Score Yet Rich Kids (1979) Heart warming is not really the term ... "Insufferable" would be more like it.‐ Washington Post

No Score Yet Don Giovanni (1979) If you had a choice between hearing the opera live and seeing the film, you should insist on doing both.‐ Washington Post

75% Grease (1978) Couldn't the makers of "Grease" have unearthed one person who was alive in that time, perhaps even one who attended an American high school then, and checked their information?‐ Washington Post

89% Heaven Can Wait (1978) This is a very sweet movie to watch, the pleasant cinematic equivalent of light summer reading.‐ Washington Post

94% Superman (1978) It's the simple, earth-bound quality of the film that makes this comic-book fantasy soar.‐ Washington Post

95% Star Wars: Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back (1980) The total effect is fast and attractive and occasionally amusing. Like a good hot dog, that's something of an achievement in a field where unpalatable junk is the rule.‐ Washington Post
