Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
2.5/4 41% In Secret (2014) Give Stratton and his cast points for effort, but sadly, In Secret lacks the passion to haunt us as much as the main character remains haunted by her own fears and desires. ‐ TV Guide
Posted Feb 21, 2014
2/4 28% 3 Days To Kill (2014) The result is an action comedy that delivers a couple of satisfying gunfights, lands a few funny moments, and fumbles the dramatic beats. ‐ TV Guide
Posted Feb 21, 2014
2/4 69% About Last Night (2014) Complaining that a remake of a movie that was itself an adaptation of a play lacks originality may seem redundant, but Steve Pink's version of About Last Night doesn't really bring anything fresh or new to the material aside from an appealing cast. ‐ TV Guide
Posted Feb 14, 2014
2/4 13% Winter's Tale (2014) It's a credit to Goldsman's abilities as a director and producer that he surrounded himself with so much talent, but his movie never sweeps us away like a story about love transcending time and mortality should. ‐ TV Guide
Posted Feb 14, 2014
1.5/4 96% The LEGO Movie (2014) The LEGO Movie amounts to little more than an exercise in overstimulation that exists primarily so children will get their parents to buy them more of the titular toy. ‐ TV Guide
Posted Feb 7, 2014
1.5/4 3% I, Frankenstein (2014) I, Frankenstein doesn't have much of a brain and is completely missing a funny bone. ‐ TV Guide
Posted Feb 6, 2014
2/4 23% That Awkward Moment (2014) The movie's predictability doesn't derail its light charms, at least not until the plot makes a fatal tonal error. ‐ TV Guide
Posted Feb 6, 2014
2.5/4 66% The Blind Side (2009) The movie is very familiar -- you've seen it all before -- but it succeeds at achieving its modest goals. ‐ TV Guide
Posted Jan 24, 2014
4/4 94% Stories We Tell (2013) With Away From Her and Take This Waltz, actress Sarah Polley became one of the freshest directorial voices of her generation. Stories We Tell doesn't just solidify this assertion, it makes you reappraise how personal those first two films are for her. ‐ TV Guide
Posted Dec 31, 2013
3.5/4 94% Dallas Buyers Club (2013) Sometimes the right part comes along at the right time for the right actor, and the film that results from it forever changes his or her career. ‐ TV Guide
Posted Dec 31, 2013
3.5/4 77% The Wolf of Wall Street (2013) The Wolf of Wall Street is a hilarious, angry, and scathing indictment of greed. It's so funny you might not notice how deep it cuts. ‐ TV Guide
Posted Dec 26, 2013
3/4 51% The Secret Life Of Walter Mitty (2013) Earnestness is often the death of comedy, but this movie has something to say, and it says it with humor, style, and heart. ‐ TV Guide
Posted Dec 26, 2013
3.5/4 91% Blue Is The Warmest Color (2013) As pure an example of humanistic empathy as you're likely to find. ‐ TV Guide
Posted Dec 16, 2013
4/4 93% American Hustle (2013) American Hustle may be full of people faking, but Russell is the real deal. ‐ TV Guide
Posted Dec 13, 2013
3/4 94% Inside Llewyn Davis (2013) With its disquieting finale and clear-eyed appraisal of human failing and weakness, Inside Llewyn Davis feels much more like their genuine follow-up to A Serious Man. ‐ TV Guide
Posted Dec 6, 2013
4/4 92% Philomena (2013) [it's] a ceaselessly entertaining film because Dench and Coogan are playing fully realized characters and share a unique comedic chemistry. ‐ TV Guide
Posted Dec 5, 2013
3/4 84% The Princess and the Frog (2009) Working in tandem with the images, the music helps make the movie a triumph of atmosphere -- you get a sense of place that's missing from lots of other Disney films. ‐ TV Guide
Posted Nov 26, 2013
4/4 81% Kung Fu Panda 2 (2011) Kung Fu Panda 2 achieves something few sequels to blockbusters ever do -- it stays true to a successful formula without seeming tired, cynical, or lazy. ‐ TV Guide
Posted Nov 22, 2013
3/4 98% How to Train Your Dragon (2010) On sheer visual terms, though, How to Train Your Dragon more than delivers; it's the kind of movie that will stick in the memory of kids who might want to make movies when they grow up. ‐ TV Guide
Posted Nov 19, 2013
2/4 69% About Time (2013) For all its little pleasures, About Time just adds a level of magical realism to his typical themes that doesn't make love feel any more magical or any more real. ‐ TV Guide
Posted Nov 7, 2013
4/4 96% 12 Years a Slave (2013) 12 Years a Slave is admirable, important, and serious filmmaking that is antithetical to what most people think of as entertainment. While it might not be perfect, it demands and deserves your attention. ‐ TV Guide
Posted Oct 31, 2013
2/4 35% The Counselor (2013) While The Counselor certainly has passages that are memorable, it's also readily apparent that its style doesn't mesh with its content. ‐ TV Guide
Posted Oct 24, 2013
3/4 71% The Institute (2013) You leave the film not knowing what to believe, and while that can be frustrating, you're also left with an undeniable urge -- even if it's a tiny one -- to find out more. ‐ TV Guide
Posted Oct 17, 2013
2/4 8% Runner Runner (2013) You've seen all of this before. There's nothing new in the story beats or in the movie's construction. ‐ TV Guide
Posted Oct 3, 2013
4/4 96% Gravity (2013) An unforgettable experience. ‐ TV Guide
Posted Oct 3, 2013
3.5/4 96% Enough Said (2013) Throughout her career, Holofcener has demonstrated a peerless skill at capturing the rhythms of conversation, as well as an insightful grasp of how people's inner lives drive their interactions. ‐ TV Guide
Posted Sep 27, 2013
2/4 14% Baggage Claim (2013) The performers all wring what they can from this lackluster script, but the final result is a dumb if pleasant film. ‐ TV Guide
Posted Sep 27, 2013
3/4 63% One Direction: This Is Us (2013) This Is Us is an entertaining and effective feature-length commercial. ‐ TV Guide
Posted Aug 29, 2013
3/4 71% Lee Daniels' The Butler (2013) Unlike some cynical attempts to court favor with the Hollywood elite, it's solidly crafted, strongly acted, and -- most excitingly -- it shows that Daniels has evolved as a director. It's the finest work of his career so far. ‐ TV Guide
Posted Aug 16, 2013
3/4 42% Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters (2013) That rare sequel that is far superior to the underwhelming start of the franchise, Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters has a snappy pace, appealing performers, and a refreshing lack of exposition that help make it a solid family-friendly fantasy adventure. ‐ TV Guide
Posted Aug 7, 2013
3.5/4 47% We're The Millers (2013) This is the most consistently funny Hollywood comedy of the 2013 summer season. ‐ TV Guide
Posted Aug 7, 2013
4/4 99% Toy Story 3 (2010) The whole project is so masterfully conceived and executed that you either go along for the ride or sit in stunned appreciation for how singularly Pixar has maintained control over the creative quality of its output. ‐ TV Guide
Posted Aug 4, 2013
4/4 89% Inglourious Basterds (2009) Although the actors are flawless, it is Tarantino whose name will go hand in hand with the film -- he is by the modern definition of the word an "auteur." ‐ TV Guide
Posted Aug 4, 2013
4/4 98% Up (2009) There might not be a more dependable name in all of Hollywood than Pixar, and their tenth animated feature, Up, continues the studio's remarkable hot streak. ‐ TV Guide
Posted Aug 3, 2013
2/4 91% Blue Jasmine (2013) Woody Allen's Blue Jasmine finds the almost-80-year-old filmmaker in fine form as a director of actors, but he undermines that skill with a terribly structured and under-thought screenplay. ‐ TV Guide
Posted Jul 25, 2013
3/4 43% Red 2 (2013) There's a charming chemistry between the various cast members. ‐ TV Guide
Posted Jul 19, 2013
2/4 41% Only God Forgives (2013) The title may be prophetic, because it seems unlikely most filmgoers will forgive Refn for such a soulless, heartless, and mindless act of attempted envelope pushing. ‐ TV Guide
Posted Jul 18, 2013
3.5/4 94% Fruitvale Station (2013) Writer/director Ryan Coogler's debut feature, Fruitvale Station, is one of those first films that announces that a major talent has hit the scene. ‐ TV Guide
Posted Jul 18, 2013
3/4 67% Turbo (2013) Turbo accomplishes what it sets out to do -- it will entertain kids, and it won't make parents feel ripped off. ‐ TV Guide
Posted Jul 18, 2013
3/4 85% The Way Way Back (2013) It's an endearingly modest small-scale film that lets its actors shine, portends a promising career for Nat Faxon and Jim Rash as directors, and will hopefully get Sam Rockwell the awards buzz he's richly deserved for years. ‐ TV Guide
Posted Jul 12, 2013
2/4 7% Grown Ups 2 (2013) Sure there is a chuckle or two along the way, but this is a deeply lazy movie, so much so that it's set over the course of a single day for no reason other than the whole production saves money on costuming that way. ‐ TV Guide
Posted Jul 11, 2013
2/4 31% The Lone Ranger (2013) It takes forever to get everybody's backstory, and a pointless framing device set 60 years after the main action weighs down an already bloated screenplay. ‐ TV Guide
Posted Jul 2, 2013
3/4 49% Redemption (2013) Jason Statham is arguably the leading action star of his generation, but with Redemption, the feature directorial debut from talented screenwriter Steven Knight, he attempts to expand his range for the first time since The Bank Job. ‐ TV Guide
Posted Jun 28, 2013
3/4 65% The Heat (2013) An action comedy starring Sandra Bullock and Melissa McCarthy as odd-couple cops that rivals Goodfellas for its use of F-bombs and Lethal Weapon for its appealing chemistry. ‐ TV Guide
Posted Jun 27, 2013
3/4 78% Monsters University (2013) Partly because it's a prequel, Monsters University is one of the few films from the gigantically successful studio that fails to deliver an emotional payoff. ‐ TV Guide
Posted Jun 21, 2013
1/4 6% The Last Airbender (2010) There's no third-act twist because we never get out of the first act. ‐ TV Guide
Posted Jun 14, 2013
3.5/4 60% The Bling Ring (2013) The Bling Ring is something new from the Lost in Translation director. It continues her ongoing portraits of teen alienation, but it's also full of big laughs. ‐ TV Guide
Posted Jun 14, 2013
1/4 37% The Purge (2013) Sadly, thanks to a ridiculous premise, ugly cinematography, one-dimensional characters, and indecipherable editing, it fails on both counts. ‐ TV Guide
Posted Jun 6, 2013
2.5/4 49% Now You See Me (2013) Now You See Me never comes up with an ending that justifies the incessant misdirections that make up the bulk of the film. ‐ TV Guide
Posted May 30, 2013
2.5/4 69% Fast & Furious 6 (2013) [Lin] relies on a hyper-edited style that gives you the feeling of frantic action, but he does have the good sense to slow things down ever so slightly when something really insane is going to happen so that you can gawk, laugh, and marvel. ‐ TV Guide
