Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
B+ 78% An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth To Power (2017) The film is focused on Gore, but Gore is focused on the issues. He makes a convincing case (again).‐ Movie Chambers

C- 16% The Dark Tower (2017) High expectations are not being met. ‐ Movie Chambers

C 44% Ghost in the Shell (2017) I'm not sure "Ghost in the Shell" ever had a ghost of a chance. The Hollywood version is too much like a blending of "Blade Runner" and "Robocop." ‐ Movie Chambers

C 73% Pulse (Kairo) (2005) "Pulse" is the kind of horror movie that genre fans should see at least once. Allow yourself plenty of time and patience. You'll need it. ‐ Movie Chambers

C- 70% Alien: Covenant (2017) The great ideas being kicked around in "Prometheus" are nowhere to be found in Ridley Scott's disappointing follow-up. ‐ Movie Chambers

D 8% Shut In (2016) It's the audience that gets locked into a "deep vegetative state."‐ Movie Chambers

C- 60% Allied (2016) The film seem(s) top-heavy, action wise, and a bit awkward.‐ Movie Chambers

A 98% Moonlight (2016) In this hateful political climate our nation is experiencing, we need more personal stories like the one told by filmmaker Barry Jenkins.‐ Movie Chambers

D 47% The Take (Bastille Day) (2016) "The Take" is just your run-of-the-mill Euro-thriller that putt-putts along like a weary TV cop show. ‐ Movie Chambers
Read More | Posted Feb 5, 2017
A- 83% Deepwater Horizon (2016) More action and thrills than most summer movies. ‐ Movie Chambers
Read More | Posted Jan 10, 2017
C 0% Satanic (2016) It's a horror thriller with some interesting elements and a nice twist halfway through. But, it's where the film goes after the twist that makes it just another direct-to-video "B" horror flick.‐ Movie Chambers

B 78% The Shallows (2016) Keeping in mind that you "may" have seen it all before, try "The Shallows" on for size. And, don't surf alone. ‐ Movie Chambers

B+ 55% The Purge: Election Year (2016) While I may question the logic from time to time in writer-director James DeMonaco's latest film, I found the overall story surprisingly clear, balanced and even symmetrical. ‐ Movie Chambers
Read More | Posted Oct 26, 2016
C 37% Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows (2016) At least one more TMNJ is on the way. Let's hope for better next time. ‐ Movie Chambers
Read More | Posted Oct 23, 2016
D No Score Yet Crazed (Fury: The Tales of Ronan Pierce) (2014) "Crazed" is one bloody mess, and I'm not just referring to story. ‐ Movie Chambers
Read More | Posted Oct 17, 2016
A- 98% Long Way North (Tout en haut du monde) (2016) Worthwhile animated entertainment is always in short supply, so it's great to see something meaningful like "Long Way North" come along. ‐ Movie Chambers
Read More | Posted Oct 15, 2016
B 79% The Conjuring 2 (2016) It's a high-quality horror film, not as good as the original, but exceedingly entertaining. ‐ Movie Chambers
Read More | Posted Oct 13, 2016
D- No Score Yet Hard Target 2 (2016) Hollywood must have thought it was worth a shot. "Hard Target 2" attempts to capitalize on the name recognition from the 1993 action film directed by John Woo. But, this direct-to-video sequel is a woeful effort. ‐ Movie Chambers
Read More | Posted Oct 12, 2016
B 64% Therapy for a Vampire (Der Vampir auf der Couch) (2016) Moretti personates one of the most sympathetic and likable vampires I've seen in this overworked genre for quite some time.‐ Movie Chambers

C 71% Tenebre (Unsane) (1982) Poorly executed with awkward line readings and badly sequenced scenes.‐ Movie Chambers
Read More | Posted Oct 9, 2016
C- 78% Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping (2016) Halfway through "Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping," I kinda wished it would stop.‐ Movie Chambers
Read More | Posted Oct 9, 2016
A 92% Snoopy, Come Home (1983) Most of the reasons we all loved the TV specials are well-served by the second film in the series‐ Movie Chambers

D 4% The Darkness (2016) We need, you Carol Anne. Stay away from the light, dear. ‐ Movie Chambers
Read More | Posted Sep 12, 2016
A 95% A Boy Named Charlie Brown (1969) "A Boy Named Charlie Brown" is a fun learning experience. It was for me and millions of other kids in the early 1970's. It has a great message and an uncompromising way of making its point at the end. Kids need this movie. ‐ Movie Chambers

C- 27% Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (2016) The superhero world needed better storytelling, a comic touch and more than a few rays of sunshine. The story is crippled by special effects from start to finish. ‐ Movie Chambers
Read More | Posted Jul 23, 2016
B+ 73% Ghostbusters (2016) I like these women for completely different reasons than I liked Bill Murray and his gang. A perfect excuse to escape the heat.‐ Movie Chambers
Read More | Posted Jul 15, 2016
B- No Score Yet Perry Mason: The Case of the Jealous Jokester (1995) Really missing Raymond Burr at this point. But, it's still good to see Hal Holbrook giving it a go.‐ Movie Chambers
Read More | Posted Mar 29, 2016
B No Score Yet Perry Mason: The Case of the Grimacing Governor (1994) Hal Holbrook's character kind of grows on you. He's not Perry Mason, but then he's not trying to be.‐ Movie Chambers
Read More | Posted Mar 29, 2016
B No Score Yet Perry Mason: The Case of the Lethal Lifestyle (1994) Hal Holbrook playing a countrified version of Perry Mason. Sort of McCloud meets Matlock. ‐ Movie Chambers
Read More | Posted Mar 29, 2016
B- No Score Yet Perry Mason: The Case of the Wicked Wives (1993) Paul Sorvino stepping in for the late Raymond Burr. It's the same format that made the Mason movies so much fun to watch.‐ Movie Chambers
Read More | Posted Mar 29, 2016
B+ No Score Yet Perry Mason: The Case of the Killer Kiss (1993) These rather routine stories were seasoned with guest stars and familiar character actors. It's nostalgia unleashed. And, I like it.‐ Movie Chambers
Read More | Posted Mar 29, 2016
B+ No Score Yet Perry Mason: The Case of the Telltale Talk Show Host (1993) A wonderful dose of sentimentality, spiced with Perry's sass, Della's sass and Ken Malansky's bravado and sass, of course.‐ Movie Chambers

B+ 92% 99 Homes (2015) By the way, Shannon ("Boardwalk Empire") is brilliant in the role. I truly admire this actor. He is going to win the Oscar some day. His performance in "99 Homes" should have him a nomination.‐ Movie Chambers

B- 91% Beasts of No Nation (2015) "Beasts of No Nation" is a worthy film because it humanizes a real-world nightmare. ‐ Movie Chambers
Read More | Posted Feb 23, 2016
C 95% Amy (2015) Watching this documentary was like listening to an orchestra tune itself. After awhile, you want the conductor to appear.‐ Movie Chambers
Read More | Posted Feb 15, 2016
C 81% The Revenant (2015) "The Revenant" is beautifully photographed, but its greatest impact is hampered by an incredibly long runtime (two hours, 36 minutes) and the high improbability of the narrative. ‐ Movie Chambers
Read More | Posted Feb 9, 2016
D+ 13% Sinister 2 (2015) "Sinister 2" depends greatly on cheap scares. ‐ Movie Chambers
Read More | Posted Feb 7, 2016
C- 91% The Martian (2015) The ending is so farfetched that the suspension of disbelief dies long before anyone in the film ever does.‐ Movie Chambers
Read More | Posted Feb 4, 2016
C+ 87% Drunk Stoned Brilliant Dead: The Story of the National Lampoon (2015) The film understandably assumes that everyone who had anything to do with National Lampoon was a comic genius, but that's simply not the case. ‐ Movie Chambers
Read More | Posted Jan 21, 2016
C 33% The Green Inferno (2015) Too much time is spent preaching against social activism and not enough time is spent on the actual consumption of humans. It's a cannibal movie, for crying out loud.‐ Movie Chambers
Read More | Posted Jan 12, 2016
B 65% The Visit (2015) Though it may not be all that scary, it gets brownie points for being strange.‐ Movie Chambers
Read More | Posted Jan 11, 2016
A 79% Where to Invade Next (2016) "Where to Invade Next" is one of the year's best documentaries. I just hope Moore isn't going soft on us. I miss those fast jabs to the face. ‐ Movie Chambers

A 97% 45 Years (2015) The smartest thing writer/director/producer Andrew Haigh could do would be to pick the two actors he did for the leads in this sensitive, intriguing British drama.‐ Movie Chambers
Read More | Posted Dec 24, 2015
D 16% Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Road Chip (2015) Jason Lee looks dumpy and disinterested throughout. That almost describes my feelings.‐ Movie Chambers
Read More | Posted Dec 18, 2015
B+ 92% Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens (2015) Episode 7 of "Stars Wars" is an enjoyable retread, full of great new young actors and returning favorites.‐ Movie Chambers
Read More | Posted Dec 17, 2015
C 26% Terminator Genisys (2015) "Terminator: Genisys" might have seen less contrived, if Mr. S had settled for a back seat. Instead, the writers strenuously wrote the story for him. And, instead of fresh, we get overly complicated and hard-to-buy-into plot points. ‐ Movie Chambers
Read More | Posted Dec 14, 2015
A 92% The Gift (2015) "The Gift" is 2015's best low-octane thriller. Just settle down, sit back and let the events unfold. Things are not what they seem. We know.‐ Movie Chambers
Read More | Posted Dec 10, 2015
C+ 66% The Man From U.N.C.L.E. (2015) The re-invention might have been better as straight-up thriller. More story and less comedy fails would have helped.‐ Movie Chambers
Read More | Posted Nov 29, 2015
C 19% Self/less (2015) "Self/less" takes an intriguing idea and turns it into a silly thriller. ‐ Movie Chambers
Read More | Posted Nov 17, 2015
C- 85% Trainwreck (2015) There's something familiar about every scene in "Trainwreck." A pottymouth comedy that fails to deliver. ‐ Movie Chambers
