T-Meter Title | Year Review
5/10 60% Farscape: The Peacekeeper Wars (2004) A generic, non-descript bit of punctuation at the end of a series that deserved something more and just couldn't leave well enough alone. - IGN Movies EDIT

7/10 90% Spider-Man (2002) This is about as good as a comic-to-film adaptation gets. - IGN Movies EDIT

82% Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets (2002) It appears that the production has learned from its mistakes and managed to put together the kind of film that deserves to be a part of young adult film folklore for generations to come. - IGN Movies EDIT

2/5 60% The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy (2005) The BBC did a better job with 1/10th of the budget in 1982. - IGN Movies EDIT

1/5 11% Exorcist: The Beginning (2004) The film's pace is slow and deliberate, probably in an attempt to try to build mood and suspense, but all it manages to build is excruciating boredom. - IGN Movies EDIT

4.5/5 90% Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban (2004) In Azkaban, Cuarón has made a character-driven film almost completely devoid of a big, senses-shattering, Hollywood climax. Even more amazing, you never miss it. - IGN Movies EDIT

1/5 8% Envy (2004) A barely amusing collection of standard comic devices. - IGN Movies EDIT

2/5 56% Looney Tunes: Back in Action (2003) Joe Dante & Warner Brothers destroy more of our childhood memories. - IGN Movies EDIT

2.5/5 78% Bad Santa (2003) A wildly uneven but occasionally funny blast of holiday ill-will. - IGN Movies EDIT

91% Minority Report (2002) Minority Report is proof that a real science fiction can still be made in Hollywood. - IGN Movies EDIT

4/5 48% XXX (2002) Get ready, gang - this ain't the '60s and xXx ain't your Daddy's spy movie. This is the spy movie for the PS2 generation. - IGN Movies EDIT

4/5 39% Full Frontal (2002) It's definitely not a film for everyone but a breath of fresh air for those looking for something other than big studio films. - IGN Movies EDIT
