Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
66% The Pillow Book (1997) Greenaway provides a visual feast, then he kills your appetite. ‐ People Magazine
Posted May 2, 2016
55% Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace (1999) None of the human actors here make much of an impression. ‐ People Magazine
Posted Nov 16, 2015
3.5/4 95% Casino Royale (2006) While Craig owns the movie, he gets much capable support. Green's Bond babe believably has more on the ball than many of her predecessors, while Dench, returning as M, Bond's boss, has perfected her sighs of exasperation. ‐ People Magazine
Posted Nov 2, 2015
2/4 65% Quantum of Solace (2008) Director Marc Forster gets the action scenes right but never shapes the film as a whole. And if Craig, a talented actor, wants to be a Bond for the ages, he needs to lighten up. James Bond shouldn't be all work and no play. ‐ People Magazine
Posted Nov 2, 2015
78% GoldenEye (1995) Its story [is] an unwieldy patchwork even by this series' standards. ‐ People Magazine
Posted Oct 28, 2015
32% Good Burger (1997) Young fans will be amused by the duo's dopey antics, but most adults will simply be perplexed. ‐ People Magazine
Posted Sep 8, 2015
86% X2: X-Men United (2003) X2's excessively complicated and character-crammed plot, which only a teen boy could care about enough to follow closely, has a nasty human bigwig (Brian Cox) fomenting a war against the mutants. ‐ People Magazine
Posted Jul 14, 2015
57% Blade II (2002) In the inventive fight scenes, [Blade's] sword clangs, and there are sluicing sounds when it finds its target, all in keeping with the unapologetic bang! blam! pop! comic-book spin director Guillermo Del Toro brings to the film. ‐ People Magazine
Posted Jul 14, 2015
1.5/4 10% Elektra (2005) Garner, who showed a promising comic touch last year in 13 Going On 30, does her movie career no favors here. ‐ People Magazine
Posted Jul 14, 2015
3.5/4 89% Inglourious Basterds (2009) Basterds has multiple plot strands that eventually converge in a spectacular finale, which takes place, fittingly, in a movie theater in Paris. ‐ People Magazine
Posted Jun 30, 2015
3/4 92% Drag Me to Hell (2009) Hell is scary, but also wonderfully wacky. ‐ People Magazine
Posted Jun 30, 2015
0% Inchon (1981) Inchon is vapid and disjointed.‐ People Magazine
Posted Jun 24, 2015
98% Iris (2015) An admiring and amusing documentary. ‐ Purple Clover
Posted Apr 24, 2015
89% Fresh (1994) A gripping story of survival on the streets and survival of the soul. ‐ People Magazine
Posted Apr 21, 2015
3.5/4 92% Children of Men (2006) Children of Men presents a chillingly believable version of the future. It will stay with you long after the end credits fade. ‐ People Magazine
Posted Apr 1, 2015
4/4 95% Star Trek (2009) There's much wit here, bang-up action scenes and a twisting plot that will make sense to those who truly care to follow it. May this latest incarnation of the series live long and prosper. ‐ People Magazine
Posted Mar 17, 2015
94% Pulp Fiction (1994) It's hard to imagine any viewer leaving this extravagantly demented, 2 1/2 hour low-life lalapalooza without carrying away at least a few indelible moments. ‐ People Magazine
Posted Mar 11, 2015
86% Chicago (2002) While neither Zellweger nor Gere have superior singing voices or terpsichorean skills, they try their best and give likable, effective performances. As for the slinky Zeta-Jones, who can sing and dance, she's pure hubba-hubba. ‐ People Magazine
Posted Feb 25, 2015
4/4 75% Crash (2004) Movies don't come better acted, as lucidly written or, most importantly, more capable of grabbing a viewer emotionally and intellectually than this exceptional ensemble drama about racial and ethnic relations in urban America today. ‐ People Magazine
Posted Feb 23, 2015
96% Argo (2012) Let's just say that the movie's final section is so nail-bitingly tense, thanks to a skillful combination of acting, writing and crosscutting, that it puts Affleck in the big leagues as a director. ‐ TheWrap
Posted Jan 13, 2015
3/4 84% In Bruges (2008) Gleeson reminds us that the best acting always looks like no acting at all. ‐ People Magazine
Posted Dec 14, 2014
74% Eyes Wide Shut (1999) It's a movie you should see a second time to appreciate fully its themes of love and lust and trust and truth, but the idea of sitting through it again anytime soon may be about as alluring as eating a hairball. ‐ People Magazine
Posted Dec 13, 2014
3/4 90% Coraline (2009) Here's a splendid cautionary tale for any child who has ever, mid-tantrum, wailed, "I'll just go find my real parents!" ‐ People Magazine
Posted Nov 17, 2014
3.5/4 92% Frost/Nixon (2008) Frost/Nixon crackles with excitement, humor and the thrill of the hunt -- and Langella and Sheen couldn't be better. ‐ People Magazine
Posted Oct 28, 2014
3/4 89% Zombieland (2009) A smart, snarky take on battling the undead, this comic horror-thriller pokes fun at pop culture and piles on the gore. ‐ People Magazine
Posted Sep 22, 2014
27% Lost in Space (1998) These Robinsons should have gone into therapy, not space. ‐ People Magazine
Posted Sep 17, 2014
0% Ballistic: Ecks vs. Sever (2002) It's like watching a movie version of Mad magazine's Spy vs. Spy, but minus the humor. ‐ People Magazine
Posted Sep 15, 2014
3.5/4 96% Ratatouille (2007) Ratatouille is a delicious delight, brimming with colorful characters, lush animation and, as Remy rises at a chic Parisian restaurant, useful culinary advice. ‐ People Magazine
Posted Aug 24, 2014
4/4 98% Up (2009) I challenge you not to tear up. ‐ People Magazine
Posted Aug 11, 2014
8% Summer Catch (2001) This is the WB version of a baseball movie. Everyone is young, toned, sexually active and agonizes over their future. ‐ People Magazine
Posted Aug 8, 2014
9% Marci X (2003) This is a messy disaster at which you can only scratch your head and mutter, "What were they thinking?" ‐ People Magazine
Posted Jul 29, 2014
10% Woo (1998) A romantic comedy, it's such a sloppy mess that polishing it with all the Pledge in the world couldn't help brighten it up.‐ People Magazine
Posted Jul 26, 2014
4% Serving Sara (2002) Perry smirks and mugs throughout while Hurley just seems massively bored, practically yawning even while hoisting her shirt for the hotel clerk. ‐ People Magazine
Posted Jul 26, 2014
3% Deuces Wild (2002) This clichéd tale of combative Brooklyn street gangs in the late 1950s gets it so wrong in so many ways, it's almost cruel to count them. ‐ People Magazine
Posted Jul 24, 2014
6% A Smile like Yours (1997) The brief Lucy scene was funnier than anything else in the movie. If only the clip had lasted longer. ‐ People Magazine
Posted Jul 22, 2014
0.5/4 0% Superbabies: Baby Geniuses 2 (2004) This is one of those what-could-they-have-been-thinking movies. ‐ People Magazine
Posted Jul 15, 2014
15% Dead Man on Campus (1998) As premises go, this one is unusually thin, boorish and insensitive. No amount of reworking with a No. 2 pencil will do any good. ‐ People Magazine
Posted Jul 15, 2014
25% Fathers' Day (1997) Fathers' Day scoots along pleasantly but never rises above its My Two Dads sitcom premise.‐ People Magazine
Posted Jul 14, 2014
5% The Avengers (1998) The only thing this Avengers shares with its swinging, earlier incarnation is a London setting. ‐ People Magazine
Posted Jul 8, 2014
11% Batman & Robin (1997) Thurman aside, B&R is about what you've come to expect: loud, frenzied, brawling and fixated on sleek, shiny, high-tech vehicles and gadgetry.‐ People Magazine
Posted Jun 18, 2014
12% Striptease (1996) Striptease is an amiable comedy with ambitions to be a satire, but its thriller plot keeps getting in the way of the yucks.‐ People Magazine
Posted Jun 18, 2014
6% Gigli (2003) This misguided romantic comedy goes wrong so often and in such profoundly lunkheaded ways that to say it stinks would be bordering on polite understatement.‐ People Magazine
Posted Jun 17, 2014
20% I Love Trouble (1994) Straight out of the His Girl Friday school of newspaper romances, Trouble is anemically formulaic and completely uninspired.‐ People Magazine
Posted Jun 17, 2014
17% Wild Wild West (1999) The Curse of the Recycled TV Series strikes again as director Barry Sonnenfeld manages to transform a mildly amusing mid-'60s TV show into a bloated big-screen bore.‐ People Magazine
Posted Jun 17, 2014
23% Bad Boys II (2003) Despite the energetic efforts of Smith and Lawrence, Boys is yet another hyperventilating sequel with an inflated plot and running time.‐ People Magazine
Posted Jun 6, 2014
39% Armageddon (1998) Producer Jerry Bruckheimer and director Michael Bay are slick Hollywood operators who know exactly what they're doing: Armageddon's heart beats strongly, but it's pumping adrenaline rather than blood.‐ People Magazine
Posted Jun 6, 2014
99% L.A. Confidential (1997) Like Chinatown before it, this twisted and twisting tale of cops, crime, corruption and hangers-on in 1950s Los Angeles artfully evokes the flip side of the City of Dreams.‐ People Magazine
Posted Jun 4, 2014
90% Chungking Express (1996) Neither of the movie's two stories makes complete sense, but that hardly matters. This is like being inside a pinball machine with a toddler at the controls.‐ People Magazine
Posted May 28, 2014
25% Pearl Harbor (2001) Bloated and boring, Pearl Harbor is a collection of war-movie clichés.‐ People Magazine
Posted May 27, 2014
83% The Rookie (2002) As Morris, the reliable Quaid throws heat, delivering smoothly in dramatic scenes and convincingly from the mound. ‐ People Magazine
