Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
A+ 94% Baby Driver (2017) This year's movie of the summer might just be Edgar Wright's ferocious ride, Baby Driver. This is an film meant to be experienced, not just watched. It's glaring flaws don't really matter.‐ Eclipse Magazine

A 99% Get Out (2017) Smart, witty, original and funny on a number of levels. It is the rare horror film that wouldn't merely benefit from a second viewing, it practically screams for one.‐ Eclipse Magazine

B 17% The Space Between Us (2017) The Space Between Us doesn't exactly soar but it gets there. It may not be a blockbuster, but it is an effective teen romance with just enough science fiction to keep it feeling fresh.‐ Eclipse Magazine

B 30% Don Verdean (2015) Don Verdean is rough around the edges, but filled with subtle character detail that plays well against the deadpan comedy.‐ Eclipse Magazine

B- 42% In the Heart of the Sea (2015) Barely floats, buoyed by a cast that rises above the material and the effects. Without top notch work on both fronts, the film sinks faster than the Essex.‐ Eclipse Magazine

D 22% Alice (2008) Wonderland is meant to be colorful, but it comes off as mostly grey.‐ Eclipse Magazine

A+ 96% WALL-E (2008) WALL*E is the best film of the year - let alone the summer - so far. Easily.‐ Eclipse Magazine

B 65% The Forbidden Kingdom (2008) The Forbidden Kingdom may not be a classic martial arts movie, but it's got heart, a certain sneaky charm and more than enough pure fun to make up for that.‐ Eclipse Magazine

84% Rocket Science (2007) Whatever he does next, [Blitz] has already achieved a measure of greatness with this quiet, odd truthful little gem of a film.‐ Eclipse Magazine

A- 53% Across the Universe (2007) For Beatles fans this is a must see event.‐ Eclipse Magazine

D 51% The Kingdom (2007) The Kingdom is a slick action flick masquerading as a statement movie. Despite a great cast and high production values it fails on both terms because of a wrong-headed in the third act.‐ Eclipse Magazine

A 89% Eastern Promises (2007) This film leads us to wonder how far we would go to do the right thing in such circumstances - all the while entertaining us with his dark humor, intense characterizations and moments of explosive violence.‐ Eclipse Magazine

B+ 96% Ratatouille (2007) Given the rather nasty PR the rodents get, the idea of a rat working in a kitchen would have to be considered creepy. It's a Ridiculous Premise but a Delightful Movie.‐ Eclipse Magazine

A 82% Live Free or Die Hard (2007) Die Hard is the best action film of the year.‐ Eclipse Magazine

B+ 37% Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer (2007) The first Fantastic Four was a bit clunky, and a bit awkward but still managed to be a lot of fun. Now free from all that ponderous origin exposition - whips through its ninety-two minutes with action, effects and some genuine family character moments.‐ Eclipse Magazine

B- 55% Mr. Brooks (2007) Simply put, Mr. Brooks is a deeply flawed thriller. It has more than enough winning moments in its darkly twisted and comic undercurrents, and a couple of terrific jump moments. Pitting jewels against flaws, the movie is worth seeing %u2013 though it's a‐ Eclipse Magazine

B+ 45% Pirates of the Caribbean: At Worlds End (2007) With Spider-Man's history and Shrek's brilliant comedy and satirical look at conspicuous consumerism, why is it that a movie based on a Disney ride is the only one of this summer's threequels to live up to surpass expectations?‐ Eclipse Magazine

A- 70% 28 Weeks Later... (2007) Like 28 Days Later, the sequel approaches Romero-like brilliance at moments - more than enough to make this one of the best zombie movies ever made.‐ Eclipse Magazine

D 4% Delta Farce (2007) If Delta Farce had been released before Hot Fuzz it might have stood a chance. Instead, the smart parody was released first, leaving this second-rate, remarkably unfunny movie to wallow in its dust.‐ Eclipse Magazine

B- 53% The Last Mimzy (2007) Winning performances from everyone played by Michael Duncan Clarke go a long way to overcoming the deficiencies of the script.‐ Eclipse Magazine

B 48% Shooter (2007) If you're looking for a reasonably intelligent action flick - where the body count is high and stuff blows up real good, but it kind of makes sense, anyway - Shooter could be just what the doctor ordered.‐ Eclipse Magazine

A+ 60% 300 (2007) Wow! I say again, Wow! Zack Snyder's 300 is the proverbial snowball that becomes an avalanche as it rumbles the mountainside!‐ Eclipse Magazine

D 16% Eragon (2006) Eragon's one-sheet proclaims: The Next Great Fantasy! Not exactly. Though it has its heart in the right place, this watered down version of Christopher Paolini's bestselling fantasy novel dispenses with most of the elements that made the book so much fun.‐ Eclipse Magazine

A+ 72% Stranger Than Fiction (2006) This is one of the best films I've seen this year. It established that Forster is not a one-hit wonder; gives Helm one helluva debut; and proves that Ferrell is worth his paycheck regardless of the nature of the film involved.‐ Eclipse Magazine

A 73% Flags of Our Fathers (2006) Flags of Our Fathers may well be Clint Eastwood's finest film. It's a study in the horrors of war; the value of propaganda, and the effects of each on both the soldiers at the front and the folks back home.‐ Eclipse Magazine

B+ 76% The Prestige (2006) The Prestige may not be the Oscar (R) contender that many expected it to be, but it is a very entertaining, and intriguing film that - just peripherally - also has something to say about family, sacrifice and obsession. And you don't have to watch closely to‐ Eclipse Magazine

C+ 68% World Trade Center (2006) "World Trade Center" is a politically neutral, emotional manipulative film that will probably not offend anyone. That is both its strength and its weakness%u2026‐ Eclipse Magazine

B+ 76% Superman Returns (2006) Superman Returns: The IMAX Experience, adds to the mythic stature of the character without detracting from the rest of the film%u2026‐ Eclipse Magazine
Posted Jun 29, 2006
B+ 74% Cars (2006) "Cars" is more flawed than any previous PIXAR film, but that may because it's so technically ambitious.‐ Eclipse Magazine

86% Slither (2006) James Gunn is a horror movie fanboy, and here, he's made exactly the kind of movie that he likes to watch himself.‐ Eclipse Magazine
