Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
No Score Yet American Harmony (2009) if you can get past the cutesy mugging and preening onstage, you may find the true creative talent refreshing. ‐ Chicago Reader

7% Van Wilder: The Rise of Taj (Van Wilder 2) (2006) This is shocking only for its tepidness; except for some raunchy language, it's ready-made for basic cable. ‐ Chicago Reader
Posted Jul 28, 2009
14% My Best Friend's Girl (2008) There's something genuinely transgressive beneath the movie's rom-com surface, though director Howard Deutch keeps retreating to the safety of frat-boy humor. ‐ Chicago Reader
Posted Dec 8, 2008
59% Flash of Genius (2008) Seriously undermined by the skeletal script, which barely develops the characters and unintentionally raises more questions about Kearns's quixotic battle than it answers. ‐ Chicago Reader
Posted Oct 10, 2008
70% America the Beautiful (2008) Unexpectedly witty and affecting. ‐ Chicago Reader
Posted Aug 22, 2008
81% The Muppets Take Manhattan (1984) The movie is breezily fun and every bit as entertaining as its predecessors. ‐ Chicago Reader
Posted May 20, 2008
11% Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed (2008) Embracing evolutionary theory will turn you into a close-minded, God-denying Nazi -- that's the upshot of this ludicrous propaganda piece. ‐ Chicago Reader
Posted Apr 25, 2008
53% The Fast and the Furious (2001) While few of the paper-thin characters register long enough to make much of an impression, Diesel carries the movie with his unsettling mix of Zen-like tranquillity and barely controlled rage. ‐ Chicago Reader
Posted Mar 12, 2008
95% In the Shadow of the Moon (2007) The astronaut interviews are fun and occasionally moving... ‐ Chicago Reader
Posted Sep 28, 2007
9% Say It Isn't So (2001) A cringe-inducing flop. ‐ Chicago Reader
Posted Feb 26, 2007
73% Family Law (2006) Admirably low-key, yet [director Daniel] Burman's relaxed approach becomes a liability -- everything goes down smoothly but leaves one hungry for something more substantial. ‐ Chicago Reader
Posted Dec 29, 2006
54% The Protector (Tom yum goong) (Warrior King) (2005) Pretty tough to sit through. ‐ Chicago Reader
Posted Dec 15, 2006
3% The Covenant (2006) No one has bothered to develop a coherent story or remotely likable characters to sustain the CGI effects, ear-splitting music, and hyperactive editing. ‐ Chicago Reader
Posted Sep 13, 2006
77% The Puffy Chair (2005) The movie may not amount to much, but the genial tone and exceptionally good performances from the three leads make for a winning debut by the Duplass brothers. ‐ Chicago Reader
Posted Jul 7, 2006
No Score Yet Subsidiaries (1975) Though the film lacks the elegance of Kieslowski's later and better known work, its irony and playfulness presage things to come. Definitely worth checking out if you're a fan. ‐ Chicago Reader
