Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
30% Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales (2017) After this fifth episode, you'll wish Disney would just declare the franchise dead and tell no more tales.‐ Associated Press

79% Wakefield (2017) Cranston is simply remarkable in the role, a tricky one since his character has precious little dialogue with anyone else. Yet the actor shows everything here -- arrogance, sorrow, anger, love, fear.‐ Associated Press

68% The Wall (2017) This small and lazy film -- featuring two actors, one evil voice and a crumbling stone wall -- attempts to be deep and even existential but it can't hide its deep flaws in the constant swirling desert sands.‐ Associated Press

52% The Boss Baby (2017) The animation and sound effects are so superbly rendered -- the fantasy sequences have an entirely different and nifty flavor -- that a drop of drool or a puff of baby powder seems to have real texture and feeling.‐ Associated Press

53% Mascots (2016) There's a deep hollowness under the funny suit.‐ Associated Press

79% Hairspray Live! (2016) There may have been enough aerosol spray to burn off the rest of our ozone layer, but Wednesday's ambitious live version of the musical Hairspray on NBC was worth the environmental damage. It was light and fun and soon had you stuck.‐ Associated Press

86% Lion (2016) Lion is really two beautifully shot films -- the tenacious story of young Saroo Brierley, lost far from home, and the less dramatic, slightly forced, story of him all grown up and looking for his past.‐ Associated Press

93% Arrival (2016) [Adams] delivers a heart-wrenchingly beautiful performance using her ability to communicate a half-dozen emotions just standing still... But director Denis Villeneuve sometimes gets lost in repetition and blind alleys.‐ Associated Press

90% Into the Inferno (2016) A lazy, meandering mess that gives off no heat.‐ Associated Press
Read More | Posted Oct 27, 2016
64% Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children (2016) Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children has all the making of a super franchise -- the call of destiny, the making of heroes and the embrace of kinship. Plus, of course, coming to terms with your inner freak.‐ Associated Press

87% Florence Foster Jenkins (2016) Streep, of course, fills her character with emotion, humanity and need, but director Stephen Frears and writer Nicholas Martin haven't decided whether their movie is slapstick or tragedy.‐ Associated Press

35% Blair Witch (2016) This sequel gets progressively messy while The Blair Witch Project grew progressively taut.‐ Associated Press

71% Café Society (2016) You'll end up feeling about the film like Bobby about Los Angeles -- "half-bored, half-fascinated." And that's a pretty poor average, even for two poorly stitched-together films.‐ Associated Press

87% Don't Breathe (2016) Robbery crews are strongly advised to avoid 1837 Buena Vista, but moviegoers hoping for a thrill might like to visit. But don't linger.‐ Associated Press

91% Grease: Live! (2016) With this hectic, ambitious and hormonal Grease, Fox proved it could up the ante in the new mini-industry of musicals on TV.‐ Kansas City Star

91% The Wiz Live! (2015) An exuberant, inventive The Wiz Live! on Thursday night breathed new life into the notion of full-scale musicals on live TV with a happy serving of 70s soul and R&B, updated with a 2015 vibe.‐ Philadelphia Daily News

59% Peter Pan Live! (2014) The character of Peter Pan will clearly survive this live event, but it remains to be seen if NBC's lacklustre Peter Pan Live! killed off the network's brave experiment in live theatre.‐ Associated Press

44% The Sound Of Music Live! (2013) How do you solve a problem like Maria, indeed.‐ Associated Press
Read More | Posted Dec 6, 2013
3.5/4 71% Carnage (2011) A nasty spat between two couples over the course of an evening may not sound like a fun flick, but like any act of carnage, it's hard to turn away.‐ Associated Press
