Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
67% The Wedding Singer (1998) Called on to replace some of his Happy Gilmore shtick with the emoting of a romantic lead, he does just that but in an unpersuasive on/off fashion. ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Oct 18, 2008
3/5 75% Happy Feet (2006) Happy Feet proves, at least for the first three-fourths of its 108-minute running time, to be just what aficionados of the digital art form have been hoping for: something new and grown-up. ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Nov 17, 2006
3.5/5 72% Flushed Away (2006) Flushed Away is a very fine addition to the animation art form. ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Nov 3, 2006
3/5 34% Alex Rider: Operation Stormbreaker (2006) Stormbreaker plays with, well, not complete authenticity, but more-than-expected authenticity. ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Oct 15, 2006
3/5 48% Open Season (2006) Within its limitations, Open Season could hardly be better, generating real interest and audience sympathy. And the storyline carries built-in intrigue. ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Sep 29, 2006
2.5/5 71% Paper Dolls (2006) Paper Dolls seems something of a cardboard cutout, perhaps because in covering so many of the Dolls one never sees clearly into their various inner lives. ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Sep 13, 2006
3/5 93% Lassie (2006) This 11th Lassie big-screen adaptation is a dramatic and at times heartbreaking look inside the uncaring social classifications of that long-ago English era, with the storm clouds of coming world war swirling about. ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Sep 1, 2006
2/5 79% Been Rich All My Life (2006) What's onscreen comes across as little more than home-movie footage of old acquaintances getting together now and again. ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Jul 21, 2006
3/5 11% Garfield: A Tail of Two Kitties (2006) the result is a meowvie with less ow to it than its predecessor. ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Jul 1, 2006
2.5/5 17% Say Uncle (2006) A film that has a lot going for it, including supporting roles by the likes of Kathy Najimy and Melanie Lynskey, Say Uncle -- which lead actor/filmmaker Peter Paige mischaracterizes as a comedy -- nonetheless founders. ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Jun 23, 2006
3.5/5 92% The Devil's Miner (2006) At times it feels as if not cameras but the audience has been transported to the high mountains of Potosi, Bolivia -- and not so much physically but somehow spiritually. ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Mar 25, 2006
2.5/5 43% She's the Man (2006) One of those rare movies that aren't so good, yet you wouldn't mind seeing it again. ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Mar 23, 2006
1.5/5 8% Doogal (2006) Perhaps the key mistake in this telling is the move of a little boy-ized Doogal (voiced by child actor Daniel Tay, providing far different line readings than those of the grumpy, world-weary Dougal) to a sort of solo forefront. ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Feb 27, 2006
2/5 7% Date Movie (2006) The comedy seems to have been more typed than written, in that the point of such parody, which is to (1) borrow characters from other works and then (2) do something funny with them , has pretty much been ignored, at least as far as (2) goes. ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Feb 21, 2006
3/4 69% Curious George (2006) The end result, however comparatively thin in theme and execution, is a sort of tot treat...and thus exactly what those parents are looking for. ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Feb 10, 2006
2.5/5 6% Cheaper by the Dozen 2 (2005) All in all, the emphasis in this title is less on the '2' and more on the 'Cheaper.' ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Dec 31, 2005
1.5/5 4% Dirty Love (2005) You can't really like a movie that features a beautiful young woman who sometimes is naked and you end up leaving the theatre wishing you could see less of her. ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Sep 26, 2005
3/5 83% One Bright Shining Moment: The Forgotten Summer of George McGovern (2005) In terms of recapturing the time that was, One Bright Shining Moment is rather effective -- although it feels to be revealing that time from certain distance. ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Sep 16, 2005
3/5 86% Junebug (2005) If there were an Oscar for ensemble acting, Junebug would be a candidate this February. ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Aug 5, 2005
3/5 55% Madagascar (2005) A good time in the jungles below Maromokotro will be had by all. ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Jun 2, 2005
3/5 83% Genesis (2004) The images in their visual way match the poetry of the griot's language, and it's obvious much deep contemplation has gone into the film's narrative development.‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Jun 2, 2005
3/5 63% The Grand Role (Le Grand Rôle) (2004) A good one that could please most specialized audiences, especially couples. ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted May 5, 2005
1.5/5 0% Sex, Politics & Cocktails (2002) Hernandez seems not to realize that a movie is supposed to sum to something. ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Apr 23, 2005
3/5 60% After Midnight (2004) After Midnight is captivating in its renegade freedom, but doesn't provide far-reaching vision. ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Apr 21, 2005
3/5 22% Down and Derby (2005) A simple pleasure from start to finish. ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Apr 18, 2005
3/5 70% Torremolinos 73 (2005) Art-house fare that, though light-hearted, should please most specialized fans. ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Apr 8, 2005
2.5/5 54% Because of Winn-Dixie (2005) [The script] can never decide whether this is supposed to be an over-the-top comedy or a deeply moving drama -- and doesn't do that well at either. ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Feb 18, 2005
2/5 6% Son of the Mask (2005) It, like the Mask-powered baby in it that has the ability literally to bounce off walls, is all over the place. ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Feb 18, 2005
3/5 5% Yu-Gi-Oh!: The Movie (2004) Various other minuses for the uninitiated -- the changing powers of the cards, the intricate strategies of the participants, the almost-lethal nature of gameplay -- are great pluses for aficionados. ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Feb 13, 2005
2/5 11% Are We There Yet? (2005) Marred with long stretches of the pothole most anathemic to comedy: dead air. ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Jan 24, 2005
2.5/5 35% Racing Stripes (2005) Quite enjoyable. ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Jan 16, 2005
3.5/5 80% Beautiful Boxer (2005) Compelling, ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Jan 15, 2005
2.5/5 39% Meet the Fockers (2004) Simply too much unpleasantness afoot. ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Dec 21, 2004
3/5 36% Conspiracy of Silence (2004) An often-riveting film. ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Dec 5, 2004
3/5 40% Fabled (2002) Relatively riveting. ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Nov 16, 2004
3/5 68% La Petite Lili (2004) A warm and engaging experience. ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Nov 11, 2004
2.5/5 86% Bright Leaves (2004) Soft and unhurried as the life in a small Carolina town, the film is likely to find some admirers because of that, if only among the most dedicated art-house set. ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Nov 11, 2004
3/5 55% The Polar Express (2004) Once one looks away from the people to gaze at the gorgeous landscapes and fabulous objects, one feels transported by the film. ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Nov 11, 2004
3/5 71% Incantato (Il Cuore Altrove) (The Heart Is Elsewhere) (2003) There are few outright laughs, but the telling is gentle. ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Oct 29, 2004
2.5/5 64% Stage Beauty (2004) Given how well the players play, and given the exotic nature of the proceedings, Stage Beauty makes for a passable evening at the art-house. ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Oct 8, 2004
3.5/5 80% Le papillon (2004) The unyielding lens catches even the smallest moments of yielding as the two humans, one so young and one so old, one so eager and one so broken, come to appreciate each other. ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Sep 22, 2004
2.5/5 72% Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow (2004) This is the fall film to see -- but just once. ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Sep 19, 2004
1.5/5 0% Merci Docteur Rey (2002) In this comedy of murder, there is exactly one laugh, involving a dress and wallpaper, which is one more than there is of a real human moment or emotion. ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Sep 17, 2004
3.5/5 25% Wicker Park (2004) A powerfully compelling film that gains most of its intrigue via the artifice of purposefully withholding information from the moviegoer. ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Sep 5, 2004
2/5 47% Ja zuster, nee zuster (Yes Nurse! No Nurse!) (2004) The characters are all directed to play their goofy expressions for the back row, which might have befitted the boards but is offputting in the close-ups of camera. Moreover, the story is slight. ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Sep 5, 2004
1/5 0% Superbabies: Baby Geniuses 2 (2004) WAAAHHHHHHH!!! ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Aug 27, 2004
2/5 33% Benji: Off the Leash! (2004) In the end the movie fails because of the way-too-intense nasty dad. ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Aug 20, 2004
2/5 13% L.A. Twister (2004) Both Daly and Ward turn in fine performances ... Undercutting their efforts and the movie's believability are the on-set hijinks strangely included at the end of certain scenes. ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Aug 15, 2004
3/5 97% Howard Zinn: You Can't Be Neutral on a Moving Train (2004) The sparkle of Zinn, who as a liberal toiling for decades for the common man yet seeing so many of them continue to vote instead for the side that wishes them such ill might be expected to have become embittered, remains as bright and infectious as ever. ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Aug 15, 2004
2.5/5 89% Oasis (2003) A markedly different kind of movie.‐ Boxoffice Magazine
