Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
36% Eat Pray Love (2010) The unexamined privilege, the idealization/exotification of all places east, the canned spirituality, the sensual goddamn spaghetti-it's all so focus-group-tested and Oprah approved and self-perpetuating and embarrassing. ‐ The Stranger (Seattle, WA)

55% Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps (2010) Often, the film feels more like a lecture than a narrative-minus the one thing that makes a lecture useful: actual information.‐ The Stranger (Seattle, WA)

49% Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga'Hoole (2010) First of all, the animation is nuts. The owls look like actual owls, only with emotions and jokes and magical warrior helmets. Secondly, all the cutest types of owl are included. ‐ The Stranger (Seattle, WA)

90% The Fighter (2010) The Fighter feels like it's barreling toward full-on Greek tragedy, and it has its painful patches, but ultimately-forgive me-the film pulls a lot of punches.‐ The Stranger (Seattle, WA)

79% Tiny Furniture (2010) Tiny Furniture is an observant portrait of those frustrating, entitled, complicated, unflattering moments when you suspect you could be everything but feel like nothing.‐ The Stranger (Seattle, WA)

70% Somewhere (2010) Somewhere, regrettably but unsurprisingly, is that same old yarn all over again-artfully crafted, intermittently amusing, relentlessly self-indulgent, and structurally identical to Lost in Translation.‐ The Stranger (Seattle, WA)

82% The Elephant In The Living Room (2011) A documentary about America's thriving exotic-pet subculture, The Elephant in the Living Room keeps its feet firmly and patiently planted in the OH-MY-GOD-PEOPLE-GET-A-GRIP camp, without losing sight of its subjects' humanity.‐ The Stranger (Seattle, WA)

33% The Hangover Part II (2011) I don't believe that these characters would ever be friends, I don't like spending time with them, and I do not care what happens to them or their weddings or their adoptive babies or their relationship with Mike Tyson.‐ The Stranger (Seattle, WA)
