T-Meter Title | Year
14% Buck Rogers in the 25th Century (1979) Frank Beascoechea's Technicolor photography is perfectly slick and glossy, and the film has been edited to an ideal 89 minutes by John J. Dumas. - Hollywood Reporter EDIT

96% Raging Bull (1980) Scorsese goes overboard in an attempt at low-keyed naturalism, however, and there is little dramatic structure to the biographical overview... But there's no denying the power and artistry of De Niro's performance. - Hollywood Reporter EDIT

79% Smokey and the Bandit (1977) While the joke wears thin very quickly, there are a number of amusing sequences, which are combined with some exciting road action to provide a mildly entertaining - and totally mindless - film. - Hollywood Reporter EDIT

97% Airplane! (1980) The level of humor is not always consistent, but the filmmakers have thrown almost everything in with a shotgun approach and the routines work more often than not. - Hollywood Reporter EDIT

96% Being There (1979) Sellers has never been better and he embellishes the detached, childlike innocence of this character with perfect style and timing. It's a deceptively simple performance, but it is essentially the core and substance of the film. - Hollywood Reporter EDIT

93% Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope (1977) [Star Wars] will undoubtedly emerge as one of the true classics in the genre of science fiction/fantasy films. In any event, it will be thrilling audiences of all ages for a long time to come. - Hollywood Reporter EDIT

63% Friday the 13th (1980) It's blatant exploitation of the lowest order. - Hollywood Reporter EDIT

95% Halloween (1978) Carpenter obviously knows the genre well and he builds a properly terrifying atmosphere through his well-paced direction. It's an effective entry for its intended market. - Hollywood Reporter EDIT
