Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
A- 78% Brave (2012) This Pixar film may not boast the pitch-perfect storytelling of Ratatouille or Incredibles, but it has belly laughs aplenty and a story that'll resonate like a choir of bagpipes for generations to come.‐ E! Online

A 86% The Pirates! Band of Misfits (2012) If you crave an animated adventure that isn't dumbed down, this is for you -- a pirate adventure in the spirit of Wallace and Gromit.‐ E! Online

B- 51% The Three Stooges (2012) The guys anchoring the latest iteration of The Three Stooges make every bark and eye-poke look like second nature.‐ E! Online

A- 84% The Hunger Games (2012) Ross delivers the dystopian excitement in high style, mixing naturalistic action with retro-futuristic production design that is sure to draw Oscar honors.‐ E! Online

C 51% The Switch (2010) The story is boosted by some decent acting and a few genuine laughs, but not enough to justify the cost of a theater ticket.‐ E! Online

A- 82% Scott Pilgrim vs. the World (2010) Much like the graphic novels that inspired it, the movie is as much a love letter to video games as it is a smart romantic comedy.‐ E! Online

B 68% Babies (2010) It isn't for everybody, but this documentary about four newborns from far corners of the Earth does a terrific job of illustrating just how diverse an infant's first year can be.‐ E! Online

C- 18% The Back-up Plan (2010) A weak leading man, an overly manipulative script and a tired retread of the motherhood genre reduce the movie to a late-night Lifetime TV rerun waiting to happen.‐ E! Online

C- 20% The Last Song (2010) Sparks has said he wrote this whole shebang for Cyrus, so it's maybe unfair to ask more from a film that's clearly a vehicle. No need to make a star push the boundaries when you can set up another shot of her pouting into the sun, wind whipping her hair.‐ E! Online

A- 98% How to Train Your Dragon (2010) Swift action, a smart script, stunning animation and capable set of voice actors come together for a movie that soars.‐ E! Online

C 53% Diary of a Wimpy Kid (2010) Much of the book's cartoony charm gets lost in the conversion to live action, and we're left with a coming-of-age comedy that just feels aged.‐ E! Online

D 27% Remember Me (2010) If you thought New Moon was genius, this movie will be your Casablanca.‐ E! Online

B- 18% Valentine's Day (2010) With few exceptions, Marshall presents each star at the maximum of his or her talents; in the few precious moments when Roberts owns the screen, she also owns the whole movie.‐ E! Online

C+ 22% Leap Year (2010) [Adams] walks a tightrope between vulnerable and prickly, with very little aid from a script that seems hell-bent on making the world want to kill her.‐ E! Online

A- 66% Youth in Revolt (2010) Finally reveals a new side of Cera that has been years and years in coming. It's nice to see that the kid has range, and range he has got.‐ E! Online

C- 57% It's Complicated (2009) Even Streep doesn't seem to know what to do with her character except laugh -- the only person, living or celluloid, in the theater doing so.‐ E! Online

C 12% Did You Hear About the Morgans? (2009) As much as these two characters talk, there's little worth sharing with the wider world beyond hey-you-slept-with-somebody.‐ E! Online
Read More | Posted Dec 18, 2009
B+ 64% Brothers (2009) Deft acting -- hello Tobey Maguire, Jake Gyllenhaal, Natalie Portman --saves the flick from wallowing too deeply into melodrama.‐ E! Online
Read More | Posted Dec 4, 2009
C+ 28% The Twilight Saga: New Moon (2009) If you fixate on funny things like plot and character -- in movies, anyway -- too bad.‐ E! Online

B 81% Bandslam (2009) Whenever the music is playing, it's tough to fight the urge to rock out right in your theater seat.‐ E! Online

C 75% Julie & Julia (2009) If Ephron finds any parity in the tilting that Powell does at this edible windmill, she doesn't share it with the audience.‐ E! Online

C 43% Hannah Montana: The Movie (2009) Parents will find their suspension of disbelief stretched thinner than a beanpole at the movie's climax, though the kiddie target audience will likely walk away enchanted by the overall message of hometown goodwill.‐ E! Online

B- 12% Pink Panther 2 (2009) The second take featuring Steve Martin as the bumbling Inspector Clouseau occasionally -- only occasionally -- gets a clue, thanks to The Pink Panther 2's strong cast and the intermittent cute line.‐ E! Online

C+ 52% Harold & Kumar Escape from Guantanamo Bay (2008) It was fresh the first time.‐ E! Online
