T-Meter Title | Year
C No Score Yet Mark Twain and Me (1991) As a coming-of-age drama, Mark Twain and Me is sensitive and handsomely made, but any movie that reduces Mark Twain to a plot device has some growing up of its own to do. - Entertainment Weekly EDIT

52% The Fountain (2006) Told in nonlinear fashion, the story keeps us waiting for revelations about what's really going on -- but these are few and far between. This problem is exacerbated by the artificiality of just about everything that we see. - Georgia Straight EDIT

89% The Usual Suspects (1995) The Usual Suspects expertly combines the complicated narrative structure of D.O.A. with the quirky, hard-boiled characters of Pickup on South Street. - Georgia Straight EDIT

60% Rhapsody in August (1991) Rhapsody in August is an old man's film in the best possible sense. Though it stares death straight in the face, it is primarily interested in life. - Georgia Straight EDIT

86% Un Conte de Noël (A Christmas Tale) (2008) There isn't a convincing note in the entire film, but there's no denying that each bit of dramatic fakery glitters and hums. A bit like Christmas itself, actually, which might just be the point. - Georgia Straight EDIT

74% Joyeux Noël (Merry Christmas) (2006) Although such a scenario opens the door to massive amounts of cliché and sentimentality, the writer-director of this piece skillfully avoids every possible pitfall, stoutly resisting the temptation to fall mushily in. - Georgia Straight EDIT

B- 43% The Village (2004) What really lurks within those woods is (fear not: no spoilers here) a very mixed bag. - Entertainment Weekly EDIT
