Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
B+ 81% Only The Young (2012) "Only the Young is an original and handsome work that belies the age of the two young filmmakers behind it. " ‐ Austin American-Statesman
Posted Feb 21, 2013
B 56% Snitch (2013) "Snitch makes entertaining work of entwining elements of family drama, raw action and a message movie without feeling trite or heavy-handed. " ‐ Austin American-Statesman
Posted Feb 21, 2013
A- 95% The King's Speech (2010) "It's refreshing to see a historical drama avoid grand gestures and sweeping melodrama in favor of smaller more intimate stories. " ‐ Austin American-Statesman
Posted Feb 16, 2013
4.5/5 No Score Yet Fourplay ""Fourplay" is crass, unapologetic, imaginative, challenging and, ultimately, comforting. " ‐ Austin American-Statesman
Posted Feb 7, 2013
C+ 37% Stand Up Guys (2013) "The movie from director Fisher Stevens echoes much of the visual stylings of the pulpy noir of the 1990s set in Los Angeles, but the story, which lacks any adrenaline, ambles about, never quite hooking the audience. " ‐ Austin American-Statesman
Posted Jan 31, 2013
A 93% Amour (2012) "It is hard to recommend Amour. Austrian director Michael Haneke's film cannot justly be described as entertaining, and it will likely leave you sad and weary. But it is a film you must see. " ‐ Austin American-Statesman
Posted Jan 24, 2013
A 92% Zero Dark Thirty (2013) "Despite knowing how the attack ends, the tight confines of the mission and the danger lurking behind every closed door make for a breathless cinematic experience. " ‐ Austin American-Statesman
Posted Jan 10, 2013
B+ 88% Django Unchained (2012) "Quentin Tarantino jumps back in his cinematic time-traveling machine and retreats to the past to rewrite history and exact some bloody revenge. " ‐ Austin American-Statesman
Posted Jan 8, 2013
3.5/5 86% Arbitrage (2012) "With his burrowed eyes, perfect hair and flawless wardrobe, Gere brims with a regal air and unsettling chilliness in his best role in more than a decade. " ‐ Austin American-Statesman
Posted Jan 8, 2013
A 85% The Master (2012) "The at-times-impenetrable film will require multiple viewings to fully appreciate the multitude of themes and subtext. " ‐ Austin American-Statesman
Posted Jan 8, 2013
B+ 89% Bernie (2012) "Bernie delivers an abundance of belly laughs, but at its center is a confounding act committed by a man too beloved to be hated and a community too passionate to think clearly. " ‐ Austin American-Statesman
Posted Jan 8, 2013
B+ 87% Frankenweenie (2012) "Tim Burton's Frankenweenie embodies the excitement, innocence, awkwardness and imagination of childhood. " ‐ Austin American-Statesman
Posted Jan 7, 2013
4.5/5 93% The Sessions (2012) "The Sessions belongs completely to Hawkes, who disappears into the role of Mark O'Brien, delivering a stunning performance that illuminates what it means to be a whole person. " ‐ Austin American-Statesman
Posted Jan 4, 2013
4.5/5 93% Skyfall (2012) "The film serves as a trip back to the beginning of the 50-year-old cinematic legend and the promise of a golden future with Craig in the role of 007. " ‐ Austin American-Statesman
Posted Jan 4, 2013
3.5/5 93% Looper (2012) "Despite its confusing logic and ornate storyline, Looper still grabs the audience with the raw emotional storyline on the farm and the constant popping back and forth in time. It's a head-scratching ride, but a fun one nonetheless. " ‐ Austin American-Statesman
Posted Jan 4, 2013
B- 37% Hyde Park on Hudson (2012) "Murray disappears into his role as FDR, blending Lothario charm with professorial cool. " ‐ Austin American-Statesman
Posted Dec 21, 2012
B- 51% This is 40 (2012) "Those tensions and the way the couple talk about them -- both comically and seriously -- give the movie its heart, but Apatow is easily distracted by the desire to cram in more jokes. " ‐ Austin American-Statesman
Posted Dec 20, 2012
C+ 50% In Our Nature (2012) "The characters in this family drama are not given enough backstory or nuance to make their problems feel real, and none of the characters warrants much interest or compassion. " ‐ Austin American-Statesman
Posted Dec 13, 2012
4/5 91% Holy Motors (2012) "It may be the weirdest and most challenging movie to open in Austin this year. It's also oddly moving. " ‐ Austin American-Statesman
Posted Dec 7, 2012
1.5/5 37% The Collection (2012) "The Collection never hits audiences in the stomach with any immediate sense of danger, and the dialogue and most of the performances feel entirely too campy for the movie to actually be taken seriously. Maybe that is the point, but I don't think so. " ‐ Austin American-Statesman
Posted Nov 30, 2012
3.5/5 74% Killing Them Softly (2012) "The movie calls to mind ominous Scorsese heavies menacing with their fearless gravitas and quick-mouthed Tarantino featherweights exchanging verbal barbs in a slowly enclosing ring. " ‐ Austin American-Statesman
Posted Nov 30, 2012
A 92% Silver Linings Playbook (2012) "Speaking of Oscars, the great DeNiro is great once again here. " ‐ Austin American-Statesman
Posted Nov 21, 2012
B- 90% Lincoln (2012) "[Day-Lewis] brings humanity and warmth to a man too often made static by history. " ‐ Austin American-Statesman
Posted Nov 21, 2012
B- 87% Life of Pi (2012) "An engaging and exciting tale and a magnificent achievement of visual storytelling that will likely be held up as a model for what can be achieved through the marriage of imagination and technology. " ‐ Austin American-Statesman
