T-Meter Title | Year
30% Nights in Rodanthe (2008) The major highlight is the awkward, out-of-step dialogue between Lane and Gere as their budding relationship morphs from wariness to friendliness to love. - EDIT

38% Swing Vote (2008) Carroll turns Costner into her comic foil, effectively relegating the Oscar winner to giving a supporting-sidekick performance in his own film. - EDIT

18% Chapter 27 (2007) Leto's performance is as great a physical, if not emotional, transformation as Charlize Theron's "hagging it up" for Monster. - EDIT

25% P.S. I Love You (2007) Even though Lisa Kudrow and Gina Gershon are both way too old to be 29-year-old Holly's best friends, they still provide welcome support. - EDIT

56% What Would Jesus Buy? (2007) A comical cry in the silent night against, as George Burns' old song put it, the trend towards using people and loving things - instead of using things and loving people. - EDIT

34% Martian Child (2007) A faithful adaptation would almost surely have necessitated that the focus be changed from a father-and-son story to a polemic on gay fatherhood. - EDIT

82% Talk to Me (2007) Ejiofor recalls Ray Sharkey in The Idolmaker, but thankfully stops just short of Alan Bates in The Rose and Eric Roberts in Star 80. - EDIT

65% The TV Set (2007) Kasdan has the narrative vision (and the b*lls) to let most of the fun derive from what isn't there rather than what is. - EDIT

54% Alpha Dog (2007) The fraternity of Alpha Busta Kappa is all about not being perceived as the "******" or "*****" of the bunch. - EDIT
Read More | Posted Jan 10, 2007
31% Running With Scissors (2006) Nip/Tuck creator Ryan Murphy's new movie is a horror show, a snarky satire, a lacerating statement about the dreams of the everyday housewife - and the rest of us. - EDIT

84% This Film Is Not Yet Rated (2006) For all the sound and fury, Kirby doesn't seem to entirely "get" that the only purpose of the Ratings System in today's Information Age is as a Clintonesque symbolic gesture. - EDIT

67% World Trade Center (2006) It is the humanistic approach of Andrea Berloff's screenplay and Nicolas Cage's powerhouse performance that determines the fate of this highly anticipated drama. - EDIT

90% United 93 (2006) Like a photo dusted and wrinkled under a microscope by forensic investigators, the fingerprints of rights-clearances lawyers sadly mar and blur the picture's focus. - EDIT
