Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
B 61% Find Me Guilty (2006) "Although Find Me Guilty presents Mr. Lumet and company in top form, the film does not belong in the top tier of the director's work. But in important moments, it touches that tier, and for that audiences will be grateful. " ‐ Dallas Morning News
Posted Mar 17, 2006
B- 24% Failure to Launch (2006) "Under Tom Dey's direction, a perverse form of symmetry is at work here, and the stereotypes seem like old acquaintances you can enjoy for a couple of hours. " ‐ Dallas Morning News
Posted Mar 10, 2006
C+ 33% The Libertine (2006) "One of the few films to maintain an air of stuffiness even while sharing intimate details of debauchery. " ‐ Dallas Morning News
Posted Mar 9, 2006
A 77% Match Point (2005) "Match Point is his best film since 1992's Husbands and Wives. " ‐ Dallas Morning News

C- 20% Rumor Has It (2005) "Jen, poor Jen! Her unfriendly role requires her to act irritable and irritating for most of the footage. " ‐ Dallas Morning News
Posted Dec 27, 2005
C+ 50% The Producers (2005) "Ms. Stroman's efforts to open up the play lack imagination, and all the musical numbers probably worked better on stage. " ‐ Dallas Morning News
Posted Dec 24, 2005
B+ 44% Casanova (2005) "Casanova relies heavily on charm, and it's not a case of misplaced confidence. The legendary rogue's saga, at least in this fresh incarnation, is indeed a charmer. " ‐ Dallas Morning News
Posted Dec 24, 2005
A 87% Brokeback Mountain (2005) "A story of forbidden love on the range, Brokeback Mountain is acted, directed, written and photographed with heart-pounding beauty. " ‐ Dallas Morning News

Posted Dec 8, 2005

Posted Nov 23, 2005
A- 82% Walk the Line (2005) "In summary, it sounds like Ray revisited. But Walk the Line has its own provocative style and a group of outstanding performances. " ‐ Dallas Morning News
Posted Nov 17, 2005

Posted Nov 3, 2005
B 26% The Legend of Zorro (2005) "A dandy-looking adventure flick that embraces all demographics with only a few missteps could lure the public back to the 'plexes. " ‐ Dallas Morning News
Posted Oct 28, 2005

Posted Oct 27, 2005

Posted Oct 27, 2005
B- 58% The Weather Man (2005) "The film has the insistent persona of an ambitious college student who desperately expects an A but must settle for a lesser letter. Nevertheless, a fine cast guarantees good moments. " ‐ Dallas Morning News

Posted Oct 20, 2005
D- 19% Domino (2005) "The movie plays like the work of a self-impressed film student. It's ripe with strident stylistic flourishes, harsh atmospheric cinematography and superficial roles that allow cast members to scream their heads off. Either that, or get them blown off. " ‐ Dallas Morning News
Posted Oct 13, 2005

C 22% Two for the Money (2005) "Even in the film's early, relatively enjoyable moments, you'll hear a small voice reminding you that there's a difference between a genuinely good movie and a merely watchable one. That pesky voice grows louder and louder with each scene. " ‐ Dallas Morning News
