T-Meter Title | Year
1.5/4 5% The Avengers (1998) To answer the question at hand, yes, The Avengers is pretty bad. Not slip-a-disk-running-from-the-theater kind of bad, but a shift-in-your-seat, "oh-for-goodness'-sake-get-on-with-it!" kind of bad. - Seattle Times EDIT

3.5/4 88% The Matrix (1999) Extremely violent, extremely preposterous, extremely entertaining, The Matrix succeeds at two extremely difficult tasks: as a vast, exciting virtual-reality movie and as a defibrillator for Keanu Reeves' big screen career. - Seattle Times EDIT

65% Bitter Moon (1992) You laugh, but you watch, and sometimes you watch without laughing at all. It's a cruise on the wild side with no Dramamine required. - Movieline EDIT

12% The Crow: City of Angels (1996) It verges on the misanthropic and necrophiliac; more in love with the absence of characters, their demise, than with flesh and blood. - Film.com EDIT

77% The Adventures of Elmo in Grouchland (1999) Silly, sweet movie. - Seattle Times EDIT

43% Multiplicity (1996) Keaton does a dandy job by his four Dougs, but the problem is a script that assumes a physical comedian can do it all, including twisting characters to make them fit the plot line. It doesn't work. - Film.com EDIT

95% Dead Man Walking (1995) Sarandon, who won the Oscar for Best Actress for this role, is superb, but Penn is extraordinary. - Film.com EDIT

96% Supercop (1996) Jackie Chan makes his second leap at the American movie audience, following up Rumble in the Bronx with a far sharper mix of stunts, martial arts and Chan's own brand of breathtaking slapstick comedy. - Film.com EDIT

36% Blue Streak (1999) Since the characters are pretty simple, and the plot wafer-thin, there's not a lot for Martin to do but fall back on wild histrionics and facial explosions. - Seattle Times EDIT

62% Return to Me (2000) It's a genuine attempt at a genuine movie. - Seattle Times EDIT

80% Rumble in the Bronx (1995) Chan, doing everything at once including all his own stunts, has an infectious energy that will help to remind you why you love movies. - Film.com EDIT

41% The Substitute (1995) An angry, white, mercenary movie out to spill blood and beat its manly chest. - Film.com EDIT

28% Three to Tango (1999) Three to Tango isn't a waste of time, it's just a middling affair, which would have been better as NBC's 'Romantic Comedy Movie of the Week'. - Seattle Times EDIT

8% Bulletproof (1996) The movie has a smirking homophobic bent and never makes you care or believe in the characters as much as in the first fifteen minutes. - Film.com EDIT

15% The Astronaut's Wife (1999) All the leads need to be in a better production. - Seattle Times EDIT

97% Anne Frank Remembered (1995) If this is not the best film about the Holocaust, it does strongly chronicle the sad fate of one of its most famous victims. - Film.com EDIT

1.5/4 3% Battlefield Earth (2000) The only people this film could recruit are members of the rock band Kiss, who, with their high-heeled boots and face paint, might figure they've got a spot if this alien thing ever really came down. - Seattle Times EDIT

28% House on Haunted Hill (1999) Instead of thrill and chills, it's kills and spills. - Seattle Times EDIT

48% Harriet the Spy (1996) There's dancing, and bubble blowing and bed bouncing that's entirely aimless and Harriet's neighborhood sleuthing becomes particularly pointless. - Film.com EDIT

89% Twelve Monkeys (12 Monkeys) (1995) At one point Cole says that viewing the past is like watching a good movie, 'Every time you see it it's different, because you're different.' 12 Monkeys is a film that will do that, change as you change. - Film.com EDIT

73% My Dog Skip (2000) My Dog Skip probes the concaves of memory to tell an honest tale and produce what is easily one of the best films for the entire family. - Seattle Times EDIT

21% Inspector Gadget (1999) If 700 monkeys typed for 700 years, one of them would come up with Hamlet. Give them a week, and six would come up with Inspector Gadget. - Seattle Times EDIT
