T-Meter Title | Year
7% Captain America (1990) Salinger has some good moments dealing with the cultural shock of his Rip Van Winkle reawakening, but film never takes flight under Albert Pyun's leaden direction. - Variety EDIT

17% Dr. Giggles (1992) Boasting a strong central performance in the title role by Larry Drake, picture is aimed at the low end of the shock audience. More care in scripting and fewer cheap yucks could have resulted in a viable new paranoid horror myth. - Variety EDIT

7% Man Trouble (1992) Jack Nicholson fans should feel cheated by Man Trouble, an insultingly trivial star vehicle. - Variety EDIT

18% National Lampoon's Loaded Weapon 1 (1993) More an imitation than a parody, this would-be comedy is very short on laughs and gives away virtually all of them in its coming-attractions trailer. - Variety EDIT

23% Super Mario Bros. (1993) Wildly overproduced and derivative. - Variety EDIT

57% Raising Cain (1992) That's the stuff of scary melodrama, especially with children in jeopardy. Unfortunately, DePalma fails to deliver real fright or titillation to his target audience, instead opting for satire. - Variety EDIT

No Score Yet Folks! (1992) Marking severe career setbacks for Ameche and Selleck, Folks! represents an obvious miscalculation as to the low intelligence of the mass audience. - Variety EDIT

20% Amos & Andrew (1993) A one-joke sketch that doesn't work as a feature. - Variety EDIT

15% Encino Man (1992) Low-budget quickie is insulting even within its own no-effort parameters. - Variety EDIT
Read More | Posted Apr 30, 2008
77% Bad Lieutenant (1992) Abel Ferrara's uncompromising Bad Lieutenant is a harrowing journey with a corrupt N.Y. cop sinking into the lower depths. - Variety EDIT

44% Boomerang (1992) In Boomerang Eddie Murphy straitjackets himself in an ill-fitting comedy vehicle that's desperately in need of a reality check. - Variety EDIT
