T-Meter Title | Year
94% The Late Show (1977) The film's striking originality, as well as its emotional force, stems from the two personalities that stand as an excuse for its mannered plot. - Detroit Free Press EDIT

90% Harry and Tonto (1974) Thrills and chills there are not in "Harry and Tonto." But there's a lot of Art Carney, a warmly welcome new starring presence at the movies. - Detroit Free Press EDIT

83% Charley Varrick (1973) It is sadistically brutal, based on a fault of logic or a warped moral code or both, and, get this, it is rated PG. - Detroit Free Press EDIT

29% Heroes (1977) The same script that regularly strains credulity well past the snapping point also provides a jolly enough vehicle for both Winkler and Ms. Field to break away from type and show the movie audience what they can do. - Detroit Free Press EDIT

43% Lifeguard (1976) The most Interesting thing about "Lifeguard" is the sight of Sam Elliott, who plays the title character. - Detroit Free Press EDIT

77% Scarecrow (1973) Thanks to an ingenious performance from Gene Hackman, "Scarecrow" commands more attention than its meandering and fundamentally pointless narrative deserves. - Detroit Free Press EDIT

17% Freebie and the Bean (1974) In case bloody bodies don't strike everyone as funny, the movie also features several multiple car accidents. - Detroit Free Press EDIT

85% The Sugarland Express (1974) Engrossing to watch, it begins to work on you, to declare its claim to greatness, after a while. You'll see. - Detroit Free Press EDIT

4/4 98% Schindler's List (1993) Once in a very great while, a movie insinuates itself so deeply into your consciousness that it offers not vicarious experience but instead, direct experience. Steven Spielberg's heartfelt, monumental Schindler's List is such a movie. - Detroit Free Press EDIT

96% The Godfather, Part II (1974) Francis Ford Coppola's The Godfather, Part II is an even richer, more spellbinding work than its wholly successful predecessor. - Detroit Free Press EDIT

97% The Godfather (1972) Maybe the secret of Brando's power is that he, like maybe a handful of others, understands fully what stillness and repose and tentativeness mean in terms of impact on film. - Detroit Free Press EDIT
