Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
2.5/4 56% Edge of Darkness (2010) A long, complicated affair that has its moments but suffers from an overwrought plot.‐ Boston Globe

2.5/4 71% The Curious Case of Benjamin Button (2008) If this movie is uncharacteristically radiant (and, my, is it), then it's also aloof and unexpectedly ordinary.‐ Boston Globe

3/4 100% Street Fight (2005) The documentary is simple and strong and small. Its grit lifts it above its mechanical shortcomings.‐ Boston Globe

2.5/4 62% The Salton Sea (2002) If there's no art here, it's still a good yarn -- which is nothing to sneeze at these days.‐ Boston Globe

2/4 80% Sunshine State (2002) Neither the acting nor the script elevates the film above a ham-fisted morality play dripping with earnestness.‐ Boston Globe

.5/4 10% Bad Company (2002) The first question to ask about Bad Company is why Anthony Hopkins is in it. We assume he had a bad run in the market or a costly divorce, because there is no earthly reason other than money why this distinguished actor would stoop so low.‐ Boston Globe

3/4 90% Spider-Man (2002) Raimi crafted a complicated hero who is a welcome relief from the usual two-dimensional offerings.‐ Boston Globe

2/4 73% Frailty (2002) This is gruesome, not gripping.‐ Boston Globe
