T-Meter Title | Year Review
59/100 No Score Yet Delta of Venus (1995) You need a decent script and quality actors to create something other than a series of soft-core fantasy vignettes. - Apollo Guide EDIT

77/100 76% Igby Goes Down (2002) Deep, dark and hopelessly cynical - the kind of film that kids are too young for and won't understand and parents are too old for and won't understand either. - Apollo Guide EDIT

61/100 70% The Europeans (1979) I found myself hoping that several of the storylines, and the poor acting that accompanied them, would simply disappear. - Apollo Guide EDIT

62/100 12% Sphere (1998) Sphere is a high concept, overly calculated, expensive, long, badly written, and terribly concluded waste of time. - Apollo Guide EDIT

88/100 98% Diva (1981) If you feel like something more exotic than your average Hollywood fare, a fine cast, fantastic set designs, and the score by Vladimir Cosma make Diva an enjoyable film to watch. - Apollo Guide EDIT

79/100 58% City of Angels (1998) A romance and a tear-jerker, but what might have come off as simply maudlin, instead shines brightly with the fine acting of Meg Ryan and Nicolas Cage. - Apollo Guide EDIT

87/100 90% When Harry Met Sally (1989) Although probably best known for its show-stopping deli scene where Sally demonstrates how a woman can convincingly fake orgasm, When Harry Met Sally has many other memorable moments that are funny and observant of the peculiarities of the sexes. - Apollo Guide EDIT

71/100 64% Wild Things (1998) It never tries to pass itself off as art, just pure vulgar entertainment. - Apollo Guide EDIT

81/100 62% Sliding Doors (1998) The viewer is easily swayed to root for one story over the other, but things don't always work out as you'd expect. - Apollo Guide EDIT

69/100 52% Two Girls and a Guy (1998) All three actors are worth keeping an eye on, in Downey Jr.'s case hopefully it will be for what he's doing on screen instead of off. - Apollo Guide EDIT

74/100 72% Bram Stoker's Dracula (1992) The result is a film well worth seeing, even if its key players aren't really entirely up to the task before them. - Apollo Guide EDIT

71/100 58% The Gingerbread Man (1997) Pretty good as far as adaptations of John Grisham novels go. - Apollo Guide EDIT
