Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
B- 33% My All American (2015) Is the film inspirational? Absolutely. Are its performances worthy? You bet. ‐ Dallas Morning News
Posted Nov 12, 2015
B 45% No Escape (2015) A nearly two-hour thrill ride that, tired cliché that it is, really does keep you on the edge of your seat. ‐ Dallas Morning News
Posted Aug 27, 2015
C+ 67% The Man From U.N.C.L.E. (2015) It's got all the ingredients - improbable romances, partial nudity, ridiculous escapes - that make it little more than big-sound and big-picture fodder for the Imax screens it will appear on throughout the country. ‐ Dallas Morning News
Posted Aug 13, 2015
C 54% Woman in Gold (2015) While the story is truly one of a kind, the film often feels like a TV movie of the week, even one of those treacly Hallmark productions. ‐ Dallas Morning News
Posted Apr 2, 2015
A- 85% The Way Way Back (2013) The Way, Way Back features seasoned actors Steve Carell, Toni Collette, Allison Janney and Amanda Peet, but they offer only support to a story that 16-year-old Canadian Liam James carries to the point of stealing. ‐ Dallas Morning News
Posted Jul 4, 2013
C+ 12% Safe Haven (2013) It's as though the filmmakers lacked the confidence to stick with the basic story, which served every element needed in a Sparks-infused guilty pleasure. ‐ Dallas Morning News
Posted Feb 14, 2013
A 91% Nuremberg (2010) Enter Sandra Schulberg, who has, with loving care and rare diligence, fully restored her father's film. ‐ Dallas Morning News
Posted Oct 27, 2011
C- 76% The Debt (2011) Rather than focus on the evil of the Nazi villain, it wallows in the collective regret of three Israeli Mossad agents who in 1966 let the bad guy slip away when they had him in their clutches. ‐ Dallas Morning News
Posted Sep 1, 2011
B+ 65% Just Like Us (2011) [A] funny, deeply affecting documentary. ‐ Dallas Morning News
Posted Jun 23, 2011
A- 55% The Conspirator (2011) Robert Redford's riveting Conspirator examines the assassination of Abraham Lincoln by pursuing an unconventional path. ‐ Dallas Morning News
Posted Apr 14, 2011
4.5/5 66% The Blind Side (2009) Upon seeing [Bullock's] Oscar-worthy performance is "finally!" followed quickly by, "Why the heck did it take so long?" ‐ Dallas Morning News
Posted Nov 20, 2009
4.5/5 75% Capitalism: A Love Story (2009) In a movie long on symbols, dead peasants are the most egregious, but a close second would be the rah-rah "confidential" Citibank memo about the United States having become a "plutonomy."‐ Dallas Morning News
Posted Oct 2, 2009
4.5/5 89% World's Greatest Dad (2009) Who could have guessed that a cat named Bobcat could write a screenplay or direct a film as refreshingly sensitive as this one?‐ Dallas Morning News
Posted Sep 4, 2009
C- 29% New In Town (2009) It's meant to be a winsome romantic comedy, which might have been able to reach its destiny if it didn't have to chop its way through a thicket of stereotypes and bad jokes.‐ Dallas Morning News
Posted Jan 30, 2009
A 61% The Reader (2008) The Reader is a bold and provocative film and one of the most exquisite of 2008. ‐ Dallas Morning News
Posted Dec 30, 2008
A- 61% The Express (2008) Davis is played winningly, without a single false note, by Rob Brown. His coach, the irascible but decent Ben Schwartzwalder, is brought home beautifully by Dennis Quaid, who has quietly become one of America's finest actors. ‐ Dallas Morning News
Posted Oct 10, 2008
C- 26% The Zodiac (2006) Have the screenwriters ever studied the concept of arc, how characters evolve from opening to closing credits? ‐ Dallas Morning News
