Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
1/4 25% Pearl Harbor (2001) "Even the much-vaunted depiction of the Japanese attack, while often visually arresting, still suffers from over-frenetic editing and more emphasis on adventure thrills than befits the tragedy of Pearl Harbor. " ‐ Christian Science Monitor
Posted May 27, 2014
92% Insomnia (2002) "A startlingly good thriller wrapped around a morality tale. " ‐ Christian Science Monitor
Posted Aug 5, 2013
1/4 3% Battlefield Earth (2000) "The film starts well with interesting comic book-style camera angles, but it never generates enough tension due to preposterous plot holes and liberal borrowings from other movies. " ‐ Christian Science Monitor

C 31% Eye of the Dolphin (2007) "This indie, a Flipper for tweens, boasts winning roles by Bogie and Bacall, a pair of dolphins. The human actors don't fare as well. " ‐ Christian Science Monitor

B+ 32% Click (2006) "Click ventures into unexpectedly pensive territory and even becomes emotional. (That word has never before been used in conjunction with an Adam Sandler comedy.) Sandler, usually a callow actor, has never been less remote. " ‐ Christian Science Monitor

3/4 39% Sahara (2005) "The secret ingredient that makes this handsome thriller so enjoyable is the chemistry between Alpha-male McConaughey and zany Zahn. " ‐ Christian Science Monitor
Posted Apr 7, 2005
3/4 65% Fever Pitch (2005) "The film centers on someone obsessed with a sports team, but the story's universality lies in the way that it can act as a metaphor of a variety of stumbling blocks in a relationship. " ‐ Christian Science Monitor

2/4 55% Cellular (2004) "Dilutes any suspense by cramming its plot with contrivances. " ‐ Christian Science Monitor
Posted Sep 9, 2004

0/4 24% Lara Croft Tomb Raider - The Cradle of Life (2003) "Croft's quest is to find Pandora's Box before a mad scientist can get there first, open it, and unleash a series of second-rate special effects upon an unsuspecting world. " ‐ Christian Science Monitor
Posted Jul 24, 2003
