Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
3/5 82% Life, Above All (2011) "Manyaka's performance is jaw dropping, entirely earning the neat little bow that the movie seems determined to put on top of her mission. " ‐ Orlando Weekly
Posted Aug 17, 2011
4/5 56% The Devil's Double (2011) "As its helmer's credits suggest, The Devil's Double isn't exactly Syriana, but it is relentlessly entertaining. " ‐ Orlando Weekly
Posted Aug 10, 2011
2/5 90% Beats Rhymes & Life: The Travels of a Tribe Called Quest (2011) "It's difficult to get a grasp on just what audience this documentary is made for. " ‐ Orlando Weekly
Posted Aug 10, 2011
3/5 89% The Trip (2011) "Somehow the two keep from killing each other - or even griping all that much - long enough to make it through a hefty chunk of pleasing celluloid. " ‐ Orlando Weekly
Posted Aug 3, 2011
4/5 78% Crazy, Stupid, Love. (2011) "A boldly old-fashioned romantic comedy with the rare quality of being both romantic and comedic. " ‐ Orlando Weekly
Posted Jul 27, 2011
2/5 79% Page One: Inside the New York Times (2011) "Everything about Page One feels dated for a doc and downright ancient in the New Media age Rossi focuses on. " ‐ Orlando Weekly
Posted Jul 6, 2011
2/5 35% Transformers: Dark of the Moon (2011) "I think I'm done with robots. " ‐ Orlando Weekly
Posted Jun 30, 2011
3/5 84% Beginners (2011) "This is obviously deeply personal material, which makes one wonder why [Mills] felt the need to cloud it with indie confetti. " ‐ Orlando Weekly
Posted Jun 22, 2011
5/5 84% The Tree of Life (2011) "Tree of Life is boundlessly poetic, the work of a master who has tapped into the nature of beauty so deeply that I wonder if there's any coming back for him. " ‐ Orlando Weekly
Posted Jun 16, 2011
3/5 82% The Double Hour (2011) "The movie boasts a deep, rich color palette, sensual movement and a psychological thriller angle that frightens and captivates. The only factor it's missing is a destination. " ‐ Orlando Weekly
Posted Jun 8, 2011
4/5 93% Midnight in Paris (2011) "Midnight in Paris is light, quick and pleasant, the kind of movie that boomers, their parents and their kids will eat up like cheese fondue. " ‐ Orlando Weekly
Posted Jun 1, 2011
4/5 92% Incendies (2011) "There is great beauty and great sorrow in Nawal's story and Villeneuve and his actors do it great justice. " ‐ Orlando Weekly
Posted May 19, 2011
4/5 61% The Beaver (2011) "This could be a great swan song or the rebirth of a troubled yet talented actor. Either way, it's quite special. " ‐ Orlando Weekly
Posted May 19, 2011
3/5 75% Everything Must Go (2011) "I adored these characters, thanks in part to Director Dan Rush's deliberately labored pacing. He gives them room to find themselves within the story, and Ferrell and Wallace in particular develop chemistry before our eyes. " ‐ Orlando Weekly
Posted May 11, 2011
3/5 77% In A Better World (2011) "Bier marches out plot developments not as organic reactions but as deliberately contrary philosophies forced to go head-to-head in a cage match. " ‐ Orlando Weekly
Posted May 4, 2011
1/5 73% POM Wonderful Presents: The Greatest Movie Ever Sold (2011) ""Hey, marketing is all around us, man! Like, everywhere you look there are logos and somebody trying to sell us something. Weird." " ‐ Orlando Weekly
Posted May 4, 2011
2/5 72% Winter in Wartime (2011) "Here's the film's biggest obstacle: It's patently ridiculous. " ‐ Orlando Weekly
Posted Apr 28, 2011
1/5 49% Super (2011) "Emboldened by its indie-film trappings and the easily manipulated cheers of its festival-circuit audience, it luxuriates in and celebrates pointless violence and aimless vengeance. It's Taxi Driver as feel-good movie. " ‐ Orlando Weekly
Posted Apr 20, 2011
2/5 67% Snowmen (2011) "Snowmen gets more tolerable as it reaches its life-and-death conclusion, but getting there is like watching a school play when none of your kids are in it. " ‐ Orlando Weekly
Posted Apr 7, 2011
98% Project Nim (2011) "A story both infuriating and complex as revealed by director James Marsh, who won an Oscar for his last film, the brilliant Man On Wire... " ‐ Orlando Weekly
Posted Apr 7, 2011
4/5 71% Hanna (2011) "Wright knows enough to fix his camera straight ahead on Ronan's otherworldly face. Despite having already been nominated for an Oscar, Ronan's presence feels like a revelation. " ‐ Orlando Weekly
Posted Apr 7, 2011
3/5 82% The Elephant In The Living Room (2011) "The Elephant in the Living Room is structurally scattershot but its evidence is sound and fair, its characters sympathetic and its message, if muddled, is still important and effectively delivered. " ‐ Orlando Weekly
Posted Mar 31, 2011
4/5 87% The Last Lions (2011) "It's uplifting, but also raw and brutal. " ‐ Orlando Weekly
Posted Mar 31, 2011
4/5 92% Source Code (2011) "Source Code sticks to its relatively basic (in sci-fi terms) setup and plays with it gleefully but with maturity, never ignoring its mass-appeal cinematic duties. " ‐ Orlando Weekly
Posted Mar 31, 2011
3/5 40% HappyThankYouMorePlease (2011) "These three vaguely intersecting plots have plenty of nice moments among them and performances that shine, especially Mara and Hale's. " ‐ Orlando Weekly
Posted Mar 23, 2011
3/5 79% Tiny Furniture (2010) "There is much to adore here, especially Dunham's direction... " ‐ Orlando Weekly
Posted Mar 17, 2011
4/5 83% The Lincoln Lawyer (2011) "I imagined the worst. What I saw was a completely different Matthew McConaughey - gaunt, mature, compelling - in an enthralling, gritty crime drama from an utterly fresh new talent: young director Brad Furman. " ‐ Orlando Weekly
Posted Mar 17, 2011
4/5 88% Even the Rain (Meme La Pluie) (2011) "Making a film about making a film is a landmine, one that's both tripped up and rewarded directors for decades. BollaĆ­n manages it wonderfully, almost too well. " ‐ Orlando Weekly
Posted Mar 10, 2011
4/5 10% Red Riding Hood (2011) "While Red Riding Hood never pretends to be anything other than red meat for its ravenous teen base, it's more sturdily constructed than it was required to be, and thus, more engrossing. " ‐ Orlando Weekly
Posted Mar 10, 2011
3/5 86% Cedar Rapids (2011) "It's just so endearingly dorky. " ‐ Orlando Weekly
Posted Mar 2, 2011
4/5 98% Marwencol (2010) "A heartwrenching tale of wish fulfillment on a nearly molecular level... " ‐ Orlando Weekly
Posted Mar 2, 2011
3/5 80% Barney's Version (2011) "Giamatti and Hoffman may be the two most unlikely movie stars ever to grace the big screen and to see them together is a treat... " ‐ Orlando Weekly
Posted Feb 17, 2011
3/5 33% I Am Number Four (2011) "Caruso continues to elevate any material he touches... " ‐ Orlando Weekly
Posted Feb 17, 2011
4/5 89% Inspector Bellamy (2010) "Bellamy is a perfect film for Chabrol to go out on. " ‐ Orlando Weekly
Posted Jan 6, 2011
3/5 90% My Dog Tulip (2010) "It's beautiful, affectionate and elegant. " ‐ Orlando Weekly
Posted Dec 30, 2010
3/5 89% Rare Exports: A Christmas Tale (2010) "A half-baked, but at times utterly enthralling, dark fairy tale that eventually abandons its hushed tones and sweeping scope in favor of a grandly silly climax out of left field. " ‐ Orlando Weekly
Posted Dec 23, 2010
4/5 95% The King's Speech (2010) "Although far from a traditional end-of-year monarchical film, The King's Speech is an entertaining sidebar to history and, unlike the King's actual speech, is a joy to sit through. " ‐ Orlando Weekly
Posted Dec 23, 2010
4/5 72% I Love You Phillip Morris (2010) "A satisfying and often very funny film. " ‐ Orlando Weekly
Posted Dec 23, 2010
3/5 54% Welcome to the Rileys (2010) "He may not have hit a homerun on his first Sundance at-bat, but debut feature director Jake Scott is savvy enough to get on base. " ‐ Orlando Weekly
Posted Dec 3, 2010
5/5 89% Tangled (2010) "How the filmmakers paint the scene with grand emotion, technical wizardry and solemn wonderment is something of a cinematic miracle. The entire production is miraculous, in fact. " ‐ Orlando Weekly
Posted Nov 26, 2010
2/5 50% Stone (2010) "It's a frustrating, stunted film, dishonest in its intentions and clumsy with its narrative. " ‐ Orlando Weekly
Posted Oct 21, 2010
3/5 45% You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger (2010) "Like a visit to a beloved senior at a resting home, Woody Allen's new comedy amounts to a mostly pleasant, sometimes trying afternoon. " ‐ Orlando Weekly
Posted Oct 14, 2010
3/5 58% It's Kind of a Funny Story (2010) "The lightest Cuckoo's Nest imaginable. " ‐ Orlando Weekly
Posted Oct 7, 2010
4/5 96% Exit Through The Gift Shop (2010) "Regardless of its motives, Gift Shop is a superb work, one that demands the audience ask questions that don't always go down easily... " ‐ Orlando Weekly
Posted Sep 30, 2010
5/5 68% Jack Goes Boating (2010) "There's a massive heart within Jack Goes Boating to be dealt with before the eyes cynically roll, and it's confounding. Ultimately, the film is uplifting in a way that I haven't experienced at a movie this year. " ‐ Orlando Weekly
Posted Sep 30, 2010
4/5 96% The Social Network (2010) "Densely written and expertly directed with performances that rank among the year's best... " ‐ Orlando Weekly
Posted Sep 30, 2010
4/5 88% Let Me In (2010) "Let Me In is gorgeously shot, with bravura onscreen performances and a gripping narrative. So why does it seem so secondary? " ‐ Orlando Weekly
Posted Sep 30, 2010
1/5 57% Bran Nue Dae (2010) "Reportedly a popular musical in Australia, though it's difficult to imagine why, Bran Nue Dae is a film adaptation that barely qualifies as either a film or a musical. " ‐ Orlando Weekly
Posted Sep 23, 2010
2/5 55% Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps (2010) "It's nothing more than a series of extended HuffPo rants strung together by alternately sappy and preachy plot points that could have been as foretelling as the original film if it had come two years earlier... " ‐ Orlando Weekly
Posted Sep 23, 2010
4/5 94% The Town (2010) "Affleck, also the film's co-writer, delivers a sturdy actioner with several set pieces that call to mind classics like Rififi, Bullitt and Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid. " ‐ Orlando Weekly
Posted Sep 17, 2010
1/5 17% Legendary (2010) "The kind of fake movie that you sometimes see in the background of real movies as a joke. " ‐ Orlando Weekly
