Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
85% Kisses (2010) It's haunting and crisply vivid in parts, but definitely fuzzy around the edges.‐ The Rumpus

86% Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call New Orleans (2009) Though titled about as artfully as a Tomb Raider flick, Bad Lieutenant is possessed of a sleekness and a morbid sophistication that belie the unfortunate clunkiness of its title.‐ The Rumpus

42% Wonderful World (2010) Perhaps Wonderful World resonates with a limited, snarky audience: me and Ben. But I suspect the wonder reaches further. After all, if Ben teaches us anything, it's that we're all far less alone than we think.‐ The Rumpus

93% The Kids Are All Right (2010) Kids Are All Right doesn't need any ideological defenses. It's deeply felt, fully and properly expressed, and perhaps that's enough.‐ The Rumpus

1.5/4 47% MacGruber (2010) You need a great character to make a bad thing good, and the action comedy MacGruber is sadly short on great characters.‐ Washington Post

90% Zombieland (2009) Wildly implausible, slightly scary and plot-lite though Zombieland is, it stands to add a few comic bons mots to popular parlance.‐ Washington Post

81% Bandslam (2009) Rife with spirit-lifting scenes of teens singing their hearts out. And it feels just that good, in a quirky-smart way.‐ Washington Post

13% The Ugly Truth (2009) Under the direction of Robert Luketic, The Ugly Truth is pleasingly glossy, refreshingly snarky and startlingly sexy.‐ Washington Post

14% I Love You Beth Cooper (2009) A disappointingly flabby teen flick that reaches for (and spectacularly fails to grasp) both the effective sincerity of a John Hughes film and the irresistible humor of Superbad.‐ Washington Post

50% The Sensation of Sight (2008) Itâ(TM)s moving, occasionally charming, and universally well-acted...But with its pretensions to profundity...the film, like its hero, can get stuck inside its own head.‐ Village Voice

No Score Yet Bachna Ae Haseeno (2008) Two and a half hours of this will try anyone's patience, so stave off the boredom by speculating about Kapoor and Padukone's off-screen romance; it looks like all that angsting paid off.‐ Village Voice
