Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
8/10 63% Lymelife (2008) [A] fine chronicle of disaffection, dissolution and lust on Long Island in the 1970s.‐ Movieline

9/10 81% Young Adult (2011) Young Adult offers intriguing points of view about a lot of subjects: The perils of nostalgia; the mythology of midlife crises; the value of community; and the futility of self-loathing come immediately to mind...‐ Movieline

46% Anonymous (2011) Anonymous is, at the very least, a curiosity, one with some clever casting and a very fine performance at its core.‐ Movieline

25% Killer Elite (2011) While the idea of having three fine actors in an action movie together is certainly promising, Killer Elite proves that it doesn't really matter who you cast if the filmmaking is just more of the same old choppily edited, noisy action crap.‐ Movieline

6.5/10 50% Brighton Rock (2011) Gorgeous, ambitious and daring as it often is, Brighton Rock has no soul.‐ Movieline

7/10 22% The Smurfs (2011) Like many adaptations, reboots, remakes and other youth-nostalgia dredgings, this is a film that transcends "good" or "bad," "like" or "don't like."‐ Movieline

5.5/10 64% Another Earth (2011) A somewhat nauseating blend of sensitivity and entitlement - sublime because it says so.‐ Movieline

7.5/10 15% Priest (2011) I liked Priest, and I wouldn't much mind any of these characters returning.‐ Movieline

3% Passion Play (2011) Hard as it may be for Passion Play's principals to accept, some ideas were just never meant to fly.‐ Movieline

6.5/10 59% Scream 4 (2011) The perfect Scream film for the Charlie Sheen age, a bloated, overhyped folly trading the intelligence of its origins for empty calories and dull platitudes - or, as they call it in Hollywood, what the kidz want. #Winning, etc.‐ Movieline

3.5/10 69% The Runaways (2010) Tone-deaf, soulless and vapid.‐ Movieline

5.5/10 27% Remember Me (2010) The whole thing plods along to you-know-what, which would probably provoke a pretty good ethics-in-storytelling debate if weren't so overtly manipulative, mawkish and dependent on a moment too emotionally obscure for Remember Me's target audience.‐ Movieline

6.5/10 49% Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief (2010) Lerman has a presence even with a mouth full of bad dialogue.‐ Movieline

6/10 66% The Blind Side (2009) Blond, brisk and all business, [Bullock is] easily the best thing about the film, which otherwise slumps into a cloying, condescending morass that doesn't do her fine work any favors.‐ Movieline

79% Dreamgirls (2006) Condon and his cast have crafted the richest yet least guilty pleasure of the season, a film so daringly flawed and benign and ambitious and genuine that even a skeptic can fall in love with it.‐ Reeler
