Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
B- 75% The BFG (2016) Luckily, the movie's second half redeems the early languors with a slapstick comedy of farting dogs and queenly manners.‐ Willamette Week

B+ 97% Life Itself (2014) Life Itself is, more than anything, a very loving document of a man who was loved.‐ Willamette Week

A- 99% Starred Up (2014) While not at all sympathetic, O'Connell makes his bulldog of a character something much more compelling.‐ Willamette Week

97% Boyhood (2014) At its heart, though, Boyhood is less about boyhood than parenthood. Much of the viewer's empathy lies with Patricia Arquette, who plays a mother struggling to raise two kids mostly on her own, with the occasional incursions of men.‐ Willamette Week

B+ 84% Listen Up Philip (2014) The humor of the film comes not quite from wit -- the character isn't witty so much as preciously clever -- but from the sheer audacity of his blindered awfulness and entitled victimhood.‐ Willamette Week

C 51% Trouble with the Curve (2012) It is a funny world in which everyone always witlessly says what they mean, every life episode is dubiously calculated for your favorite character's benefit, and every incompetent person is also morally repellent and physically grotesque.‐ Willamette Week

B 80% Quartet (2013) While Hoffman seems very aware he's gently closing the book on an entire generation of entertainers, he nonetheless allows them to do what they've always done best: be entertaining.‐ Willamette Week

B 91% Blue Jasmine (2013) Blanchett's performance is fascinating. She's an Ingmar Bergman figure yanked straight out of Tennessee Williams.‐ Willamette Week

A- 82% The Broken Circle Breakdown (2013) The Broken Circle Breakdown is a very American romance. It is also a very European tragedy.‐ Willamette Week
