T-Meter Title | Year
1.5/5 No Score Yet A Thousand Words (2012) There is a surprising sweetness and sincerity that manifests during the third act, enough to acquit the film of charges of cynicism. Its crimes against comedy, however, are not so easily forgiven. - Hollywood.com EDIT

3/5 53% Dr Seuss' The Lorax (2012) The Lorax speaks for the trees; Zac Efron speaks for the vital 12-to-18-year-old demographic. - Hollywood.com EDIT

3.5/5 43% Silent House (2012) Despite an unfortunate third-act meltdown, it's a notch better than your average home-invasion thriller, thanks largely to the efforts of Olsen. - Hollywood.com EDIT

2/5 28% Project X (2012) The scale of the debauchery is impressive, the comedy significantly less so. - Hollywood.com EDIT

2/5 10% Gone (2012) As rote and unimaginative as its title. - Hollywood.com EDIT

2/5 32% Tyler Perry's Good Deeds (2012) Drowning in tedious exposition, much of which is devoted to affirming the obvious. - Hollywood.com EDIT

3.5/5 26% This Means War (2012) Warrantless wiretapping has never been more hilarious. A stroke of McGenius! - Hollywood.com EDIT

3/5 31% The Vow (2012) There are unintentional echoes of 'Total Recall' in Rachel McAdams' storyline, which I suppose would make Channing Tatum her Kuato. - Hollywood.com EDIT

3/5 85% Chronicle (2012) When the action slows, Trank's hand grows heavy, pummeling us with scenes of ham-fisted histrionics that undermine the found-footage verisimilitude. - Hollywood.com EDIT

2/5 75% Big Miracle (2012) Ends up feeling like some kind of saccharine paean to the virtues of self-interest, a Hallmark special scripted by Ayn Rand - Hollywood.com EDIT

3.5/5 32% Man on a Ledge (2012) Worthington makes for a likable populist protagonist, even if his Australian accent betrays him on copious occasions, and Harris' disturbingly emaciated frame lends an added menace to his plutocrat villain. - Hollywood.com EDIT

3/5 79% The Grey (2012) Director Joe Carnahan's macho metaphysics leave 'The Grey' feeling a bit overcooked. - Hollywood.com EDIT

2/5 27% Underworld: Awakening (2012) The carnage occasionally pauses to allow Beckinsale a moment to emote over lost love or seek a fleeting bond with a screen partner, but soon more beasts are on hand, and the soulless slaughter hastily recommences. - Hollywood.com EDIT

3.5/5 80% Haywire (2012) Having grown accustomed to waif-like "action heroines," it's refreshing to witness an actress who can deliver a knockout blow - and take one - with some credulity. - Hollywood.com EDIT

2/5 51% Contraband (2012) I confess to be unfamiliar with the vagaries of illicit foreign-goods transport, but I have to think it's more exciting than the rote action that unfolds in this movie. - Hollywood.com EDIT

1.5/5 6% The Devil Inside (2012) The film devolves into a kind of exorcism-themed Real World episode, replete with "confessionals" in which the characters tearfully air their frustrations. As if we cared. - Hollywood.com EDIT

4/5 95% The Muppets (2011) The Muppets heralds the return of Jim Henson's beloved furry creations, resurrected from pop-culture irrelevance and lovingly restored to their former greatness in a vibrant comedy-musical. - Hollywood.com EDIT

3.5/5 85% Puss in Boots (2011) Bears little resemblance to the franchise that spawned it -- and that's a good thing. - Hollywood.com EDIT

3.5/5 60% Real Steel (2011) Patently ludicrous but undeniably rousing. - Hollywood.com EDIT
Read More | Posted Oct 6, 2011
2/5 6% Dream House (2011) A suspense thriller that's neither thrilling nor suspenseful. - Hollywood.com EDIT

4/5 92% Drive (2011) The film can afford such narrative economy in part because Gosling is so effective, needing little in the way of words to convey the complexity of his character. - Hollywood.com EDIT

2.5/5 28% Colombiana (2011) Deprived of details, Megaton expects us to subsist on action alone, but it's not enough to fill the void left by the absence of story. - Hollywood.com EDIT

3/5 62% Final Destination 5 (2011) It's still schlock, mind you -- but artful schlock, and a marked improvement over the preceding entry. - Hollywood.com EDIT

3.5/5 76% The Help (2011) We are all invited to revel in the shadenfreude, but in between the snickering, it's worth pondering whether the film has perhaps lost its way. Was 'The Help' really intended as a revenge fantasy? - Hollywood.com EDIT

3.5/5 82% Rise of the Planet of the Apes (2011) Bold, gripping, and a little loony - a summer blockbuster even PETA can love. - Hollywood.com EDIT

3/5 45% Cowboys & Aliens (2011) Takes itself more seriously than any film called 'Cowboys & Aliens' ever should. - Hollywood.com EDIT

2.5/5 78% Crazy, Stupid, Love. (2011) Often inspired, occasionally insipid, altogether uneven. - Hollywood.com EDIT

2.5/5 36% Larry Crowne (2011) It's got Tom Hanks, it's got Julia Roberts, and ... well, that's pretty much it. - Hollywood.com EDIT

3.5/5 35% Transformers: Dark of the Moon (2011) Exhilarating and exasperating, awe-inspiring and stupefying, less a movie than a prolonged manic episode. In other words, it's a Michael Bay film. - Hollywood.com EDIT
Read More | Posted Jun 28, 2011
4/5 90% Attack the Block (2011) A fresh and funny twist on the alien-invasion epic. - Hollywood.com EDIT
Read More | Posted Jun 23, 2011
3.5/5 39% Cars 2 (2011) Pixar's least-serious film to date: playful, silly, crammed with one-liners and throwaway sight gags. Though it lacks the immense depth of feeling that characterizes the studio's more acclaimed releases, it's by no means hollow. - Hollywood.com EDIT
