T-Meter Title | Year
8.3/10 87% Inception (2010) Mercifully, Inception is short on "is-this-a-dream-or-is-this-reality" pseudo-philosophizing, allowing the near-Kubrickian visual stimuli to drive the exposition and action. And it works. - Paste Magazine EDIT

8/10 90% Zombieland (2009) Zombieland succeeds because it doesn't aspire to be anything more than a smart, well-produced action flick with snappy dialogue and memorable characters. - Paste Magazine EDIT
