Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
65% This Must Be The Place (2012) Penn's Cheyenne is endearing and ultimately a little bit heartbreaking.‐ Windy City Times

90% Lincoln (2012) One luxuriates amidst so much good acting, serene with the thought that a master technician is at the controls, with every detail thought out and presented just so.‐ Windy City Times

93% Skyfall (2012) Skyfall's 143-minute running time doesn't seem a bit extended. Rather, one sits there taking in this 23rd Bond adventure, wishing to be shaken and stirred indefinitely.‐ Windy City Times

12% Jack and Diane (2012) Never really moves beyond or does much to develop...its sorta cool premise.‐ Windy City Times
Read More | Posted Nov 11, 2012
78% A Late Quartet (2012) A delicately balanced film, driven by...glorious actors and a gorgeous soundtrack.‐ Windy City Times

66% Cloud Atlas (2012) A rare example of cinematic art.‐ Windy City Times
Read More | Posted Nov 11, 2012
90% Keep the Lights On (2012) A brutally honest, at times embarrassingly raw, attempt to capture a modern day, urban relationship...bittersweet and filled with memorable details, a huge leap forward for [director] Sachs.‐ Windy City Times

96% Argo (2012) An enthralling and deliciously entertaining movie -- and a deserved triumph for its star and director.‐ Windy City Times
Read More | Posted Nov 11, 2012
10% About Cherry (2012) almost laughably unsexy‐ Windy City Times
Read More | Posted Nov 11, 2012
43% The Paperboy (2012) Kidman's willingness to plumb the depths for her director elevates The Paperboy into something much more thrilling than the torrid settings from which it springs.‐ Windy City Times
Read More | Posted Nov 11, 2012
99% How to Survive a Plague (2012) Beautifully inspiring and, obviously, also a great cautionary tale.‐ Windy City Times
Read More | Posted Nov 11, 2012
55% Beloved (2012) A bit heavy-handed when the tone of the piece isn't wavering uneasily between light and dark.‐ Windy City Times
Read More | Posted Nov 11, 2012
No Score Yet Wildness (2012) A stunningly evocative portrait of a location at the epicenter of gay culture, past, present and, one presumes, future...a great affirmation of the power of the creative spirit.‐ Windy City Times
Read More | Posted Nov 11, 2012
67% Lawless (2012) fairly entertaining‐ Windy City Times
Read More | Posted Nov 11, 2012
56% For a Good Time, Call... (2012) short on laughs and high on vulgarity‐ Windy City Times
Read More | Posted Nov 11, 2012
94% Diana Vreeland: The Eye Has To Travel (2012) [A] warm portrait of the world's first true fashion maven.‐ Windy City Times
Read More | Posted Oct 5, 2012
75% Hope Springs (2012) The strong acting of the two leads is in service to a well-intentioned but very talky script ... and isn't nearly as entertaining as it would like to be. ‐ Windy City Times
Read More | Posted Aug 18, 2012
57% Sparkle (2012) An old-fashioned, entertaining backstage showbiz story, and ... with the passing of Houston there is, naturally enough, a melancholy undertone to the entire movie.‐ Windy City Times
Read More | Posted Aug 18, 2012
87% ParaNorman (2012) [A] darkly charming, at times forlorn, snarky little movie that both kids and their wised-up parents will love.‐ Knight at the Movies
Read More | Posted Aug 17, 2012
87% The Dark Knight Rises (2012) A joyless, bitter epic without a hint of exhilaration.‐ Knight at the Movies
Read More | Posted Jul 24, 2012
99% The Invisible War (2012) Kirby Dick has again shown great restraint in presenting such inflammatory material, betting a clear-eyed approach will have an inflammatory effect on his audience -- and it does.‐ Knight at the Movies
Read More | Posted Jul 15, 2012
81% Magic Mike (2012) Certainly delivers on its promise to titillate but doesn't offer anything much different than the 1981 TV movie For Ladies Only -- audiences apparently still craving the same old song and lapdance.‐ Knight at the Movies
Read More | Posted Jul 15, 2012
78% Brave (2012) A charming and vibrant new member of the Disney/Pixar stable. And the heroine's flaming red hair is at last something that makes the fuss over 3D worthwhile.‐ Knight at the Movies
Read More | Posted Jul 15, 2012
41% Rock of Ages (2012) Would have been more honestly titled Rock for Ages -- because that's how long this headbangers ball seems to go on.‐ Knight at the Movies
Read More | Posted Jul 15, 2012
72% Prometheus (2012) Scott has indeed created another sci-fi classic -- brilliant mess that it is.‐ Knight at the Movies
Read More | Posted Jul 15, 2012
78% Nate & Margaret (2012) A lovely surprise -- it's endearing rather than sticky-sweet; truly charming rather than forced; and is enriched by its two leading performances as well as several memorable supporting turns.‐ Knight at the Movies
Read More | Posted Jul 15, 2012
96% In the Family (2012) Wang's unforced, contemplative approach seems like the perfect way to underline his message.‐ Knight at the Movies
Read More | Posted Jul 15, 2012
85% Bully (2012) Hirsch's portrait imbues his everyday heroes with a dignity and grace that their tormenters obviously are too short-sighted to see and which shines in every frame of the film.‐ Knight at the Movies
Read More | Posted Jul 15, 2012
75% Conversation Piece (Gruppo di famiglia in un interno) (1974) Flawed and misshapen as the movie remains, it's also clearly the work of a master of the camera-albeit one in his autumn years.‐ Knight at the Movies
Read More | Posted Jul 15, 2012
83% Madonna: Truth or Dare (1991) In presenting an "honest," unvarnished portrait of herself, Madonna gives her one great performance in a movie.‐ Knight at the Movies
Read More | Posted Jul 15, 2012
79% The Deep Blue Sea (2012) A triumph of style and substance - a rare distinction that Davies has managed time and again.‐ Knight at the Movies
Read More | Posted Jul 15, 2012
84% The Hunger Games (2012) While a great ride of a movie, it is also one wrapped around an oddly disquieting message.‐ Knight at the Movies
Read More | Posted Jul 15, 2012
85% 21 Jump Street (2012) Interchangeable with dozens of other "dude" comedies that have come before it.‐ Knight at the Movies
Read More | Posted Jul 15, 2012
81% I Killed My Mother (2013) For Dorval's acting alone, the film is a must-see. Add to that Dolan's own petulant performance, knowing eye for character detail, offbeat camera set-ups and assured direction, and the movie becomes a blissful character study. It's fabulous. ‐ Knight at the Movies
Read More | Posted Jul 15, 2012
51% John Carter (2012) It's one of those big-screen enterprises that doesn't leave much residue (not to mention pleasure) once its moved on to conquer its next audience.‐ Knight at the Movies
Read More | Posted Jul 15, 2012
79% The Innkeepers (2012) Diverting and certainly worthy of examination; given all these pluses, I'd like to have seen more of West's compelling backstory threaded into his narrative.‐ Knight at the Movies
Read More | Posted Jul 15, 2012
97% Tomboy (2011) The director's low-key approach to such a seemingly complex topic really illuminates the subject in both very basic and rather profound ways.‐ Knight at the Movies
Read More | Posted Jul 15, 2012
57% Albert Nobbs (2012) Close's performance is no less sensational than Heath Ledger's as the close mouthed Ennis in Brokeback Mountain.‐ Knight at the Movies
Read More | Posted Jul 15, 2012
33% Joyful Noise (2012) A crowd pleaser that really pleases.‐ Knight at the Movies
Read More | Posted Jan 13, 2012
93% Pariah (2011) Rees has crafted a moving and powerful first effort that is a welcome edition to the lesbian film canon.‐ Knight at the Movies
Read More | Posted Jan 13, 2012
22% Angels Crest (2011) Nothing sticks for long in this strangely muted, depressing drama that blows from one scene to the next without any particular rhythm like one of the pretty snow drifts in the film.‐ Knight at the Movies
Read More | Posted Jan 13, 2012
51% The Iron Lady (2012) The only reason to see the movie is Meryl Streep's performance-and then, only if you have yearned for Queen Meryl, Our Lady of the Accents.‐ Knight at the Movies
Read More | Posted Jan 13, 2012
86% The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (2011) Perhaps the best match-up to the acrid yet compelling talents of Fincher since 2007's Zodiac or maybe even his breakthrough feature, 1995's Seven.‐ Knight at the Movies
Read More | Posted Jan 13, 2012
75% The Adventures of Tintin (2011) What begins as a bracing adventure yarn for kids of all ages descends into a charmless, increasingly chaotic last half that leaves you feeling pummeled rather than energized.‐ Knight at the Movies
Read More | Posted Jan 13, 2012
96% The Artist (2011) A movie that is so old-fashioned from beginning to end that it's literally a breath of fresh air.‐ Knight at the Movies
Read More | Posted Jan 13, 2012
83% Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy (2011) Densely plotted and edited with the assumption that fickle, easily distracted audiences will keep up and not lag behind. And woe be to the moviegoer who answers the call of nature.‐ Knight at the Movies
Read More | Posted Jan 13, 2012
60% Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows (2011) The whole movie, chock full of queer undertone, is one long sly smile-and deliciously so.‐ Knight at the Movies
Read More | Posted Jan 13, 2012
100% We Were Here (2011) Cathartic and bittersweet with moments of joy and humor. Weissman's movie is a rare gift.‐ Knight at the Movies
Read More | Posted Jan 13, 2012
92% Arthur Christmas (2011) The movie's idea that Santa and his elves have turned the distribution of presents every Dec. 24 into a major military operation makes me more than a tad uneasy.‐ Knight at the Movies
Read More | Posted Jan 13, 2012
83% My Week with Marilyn (2011) It is Michelle Williams who really sets the movie apart. She eerily recalls the ethereal Monroe and her subtle shifts in mood really get at the heart of the often somnambulant girl-woman. ‐ Knight at the Movies
