Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
C+ 25% Friday the 13th (2009) "This new Friday the 13th is infinitely better than Jason X or Freddy vs. Jason, but it's still schlock. " ‐ Seattle Post-Intelligencer
Posted Feb 12, 2009
B- 58% Taken (2009) "Longtime action cinematographer Pierre Morrel proves adept at using the quick, claustrophobic cuts of the Bourne franchise and the Transporter flicks. " ‐ Seattle Post-Intelligencer
Posted Jan 29, 2009
C 33% Paul Blart: Mall Cop (2009) "An inoffensive way to spend 90 minutes, unless of course you're on the husky end of the spectrum, in which case they're all going to laugh at you. " ‐ Seattle Post-Intelligencer
Posted Jan 16, 2009
C 51% Notorious (2009) "For anyone looking for something as real or engaging as Biggie's music -- or a good introduction to it -- will be disappointed by this mediocre celluloid life-after-death. " ‐ Seattle Post-Intelligencer
Posted Jan 16, 2009
C+ 46% Yes Man (2008) "Though it's a star vehicle, Carrey seems only marginally interested in rehashing the role of sweet spaz, and so he almost feels miscast. " ‐ Seattle Post-Intelligencer
Posted Dec 19, 2008
D 19% Dark Streets (2008) "It's atmospheric like a steaming pile. " ‐ Seattle Post-Intelligencer
Posted Dec 12, 2008
C 48% Twilight (2008) "It's a disappointment for sure. " ‐ Seattle Post-Intelligencer
Posted Nov 19, 2008
A 68% Synecdoche, New York (2008) "Have your coffee? Feel like a brain teaser? Well, then, let's give the plot of Charlie Kaufman's directorial debut, Synecdoche, New York a try. " ‐ Seattle Post-Intelligencer
Posted Nov 6, 2008
C+ 65% High School Musical 3: Senior Year (2008) "Disliking such a bona fide winner as the HSM empire makes a person seem like a world-class killjoy, but the relentless positivity and plastic smiley faces of these movies would make even the most joyful person have very dark thoughts. " ‐ Seattle Post-Intelligencer
Posted Oct 23, 2008
C+ 45% Sex Drive (2008) "he first half-hour of this movie is super-worse, with only some sub-American Pie gags fleshing out the lame-brain plot, but once it gets on the road, there's pleasure to be had. " ‐ Seattle Post-Intelligencer
Posted Oct 17, 2008
B 74% Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist (2008) "Let's call this High Fidelity Nano. It's a little bit less in every way, lighter and cuter than its archetypal elder, but it might just fit your present lifestyle all the better. " ‐ Seattle Post-Intelligencer
Posted Oct 2, 2008
B- 65% The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants 2 (2008) "It's enjoyable, though, even if it's extremely slight. " ‐ Seattle Post-Intelligencer
Posted Aug 6, 2008
C+ 32% The X-Files: I Want to Believe (The X Files 2) (2008) "The X-Files: I Want To Believe does nothing so much as stir up a pining for the show in its prime. " ‐ Seattle Post-Intelligencer
Posted Jul 24, 2008
C- 14% The Love Guru (2008) "Even if he is trying to find peace in his current banality, it doesn't make The Love Guru any easier to watch. " ‐ Seattle Post-Intelligencer
Posted Jun 19, 2008
A- 46% Mister Lonely (2007) "The film is a paean to the imagination, but what keeps Mister Lonely from being just a self-indulgent flight of fancy is that Harmony Korine shows that even in Neverland, the suffering is real. " ‐ Seattle Post-Intelligencer
Posted May 15, 2008
B 27% What Happens in Vegas (2008) "A first- or second-date flick, after which there can be some Cheesecake Factory and maybe a peck on the cheek, no harm done. What Happens in Vegas is pleasant enough for all of that. " ‐ Seattle Post-Intelligencer
Posted May 8, 2008
C 0% Graduation (2007) "Unlike 2005's pitch-perfect teen heist movie Brick, Graduation misses nearly every note it tries to hit. " ‐ Seattle Post-Intelligencer
Posted May 1, 2008
D 39% Zombie Strippers (2008) "Since Jay Lee desperately wants to be in on the joke, the movie isn't exactly camp, but since it's actually terrible, it isn't a parody either. " ‐ Seattle Post-Intelligencer
Posted Apr 24, 2008
B 85% Forgetting Sarah Marshall (2008) "For about an hour, the movie is essentially Budweiser ad humor writ long ("Dude!") but about halfway through, the movie shows it has a little heart. " ‐ Seattle Post-Intelligencer
Posted Apr 17, 2008
C- 25% Drillbit Taylor (2008) "Whoever shoulders the blame, this thing is a mess. We can only hope it's just a necessary step in Wilson's recovery, though not one you should feel obliged to watch. " ‐ Seattle Post-Intelligencer
Posted Mar 20, 2008
B+ 79% Dr. Seuss' Horton Hears a Who! (2008) "Anyone who suffered through Carrey's turn as the Grinch would be forgiven for staying away from any further such pairing simply on principle. But to shun the newest Carrey-Seuss mix out of spite would be a shame because this movie is a delight. " ‐ Seattle Post-Intelligencer
Posted Mar 13, 2008
B 27% Step Up 2 the Streets (2008) "Why quibble? Anyone who goes to this movie for the plot is insane. It's all about the moves and the bodies putting them on. " ‐ Seattle Post-Intelligencer
Posted Feb 13, 2008
B- 57% Vince Vaughn's Wild West Comedy Show: 30 Days & 30 Nights - Hollywood to the Heartland (2008) "An intermittently funny, by-the-numbers tour documentary that could easily have gone straight to DVD. " ‐ Seattle Post-Intelligencer
Posted Feb 7, 2008
C 16% Untraceable (2008) "Just ugh. " ‐ Seattle Post-Intelligencer
