Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
2/5 48% The Frisco Kid (1979) A weakly scripted, largely unfunny comedy-western intermittently helped by Gene Wilder's then-considerable charm.‐ TV Guide

2.5/5 53% The Last Dragon (1985) An enjoyable pastiche of martial arts, romance, music, and video.‐ TV Guide

2/5 50% Willow (1988) The plot grinds on inescapably to its predictable climax, with the viewer fully aware of what awaits long before the events unfold.‐ TV Guide

2/5 43% Robin Hood: Men in Tights (1993) Although sporadically funny and not quite the disaster it was initially made out to be, this Robin Hood robs gags from other films while giving the poor viewer far too few laughs.‐ TV Guide

1/5 17% Dr. Giggles (1992) What this project really needed was a script doctor.‐ TV Guide

2.5/5 44% Species (1995) Alien meets Basic Instinct in this textbook illustration of what happens when millions of dollars' worth of technical expertise is brought to bear on a cheap, exploitative script.‐ TV Guide

1/5 60% Arrivederci, Baby! (1966) The whole affair leaves a bad taste in one's mouth.‐ TV Guide

1/5 33% Bela Lugosi Meets a Brooklyn Gorilla (1952) Lugosi is at his scary best, but the movie is awful, with Mitchell and Petrillo doing awful imitations of Martin and Lewis.‐ TV Guide

2/5 20% Judith (1966) This film is nothing more than a showcase for Loren... but it does little to illuminate the Israeli cause, which was handled better in Exodus and Cast a Giant Shadow.‐ TV Guide

1.5/5 No Score Yet A House Is Not a Home (1964) Poorly and unimaginatively adapted from the autobiography of Polly Adler.‐ TV Guide

3/5 100% Hotel (1967) The Arthur Hailey novel was vastly improved upon by the film, which was a cut above average, but no more.‐ TV Guide

1/5 0% The Hunting Party (1971) A very poor British attempt to imitate an Italian western by shooting it in Spain and splattering blood all over the countryside. A fine cast is totally wasted in this film.‐ TV Guide

2.5/5 No Score Yet Island of the Blue Dolphins (1964) A well-made film with a lead character with whom kids will easily empathize.‐ TV Guide

2/5 0% Joy in the Morning (1965) The film is a bit melodramatic, and the direction is uneven. Chamberlain's performance is average, and Mimieux isn't too bad.‐ TV Guide

2/5 No Score Yet The Corrupt Ones (Die Hölle von Macao) (1967) Trashy adventure flick.‐ TV Guide
Read More | Posted Nov 16, 2018
1.5/5 No Score Yet Clay Pigeon (1971) One of those drug films that came out by the dozens in the early 1970s. Although it professes to be anti-drug, it wallows in the drug environment and provides training for future abusers.‐ TV Guide

2.5/5 40% Carry On Camping (1969) Another entry in the Carry On series with the same cast doing the same things and getting the same laughs. ‐ TV Guide

1/5 14% Caprice (1967) A dumb Day comedy filmed a few years after she should have retired her brand of humor.‐ TV Guide
Read More | Posted Nov 16, 2018
2/5 No Score Yet The Crazy-Quilt (1966) This low-budget independent film is based on a novel which could easily have justified a longer picture.‐ TV Guide

2/5 71% A Delicate Balance (1973) This second in a series of Ely Landau-filmed stage plays for a subscription sales system is an unfortunately stiff, dull, and extremely stagy screen adaptation of Edward Albee's Pulitzer Prize-winning play.‐ TV Guide

2/5 50% A Distant Trumpet (1964) This film was, unfortunately, a less-than-glorious exit for the great Raoul Walsh, who simply made a B-western on a big budget.‐ TV Guide
Read More | Posted Nov 15, 2018
2/5 No Score Yet The Doll (1962) A tale of depression and loneliness that only fans of Bergman will like.‐ TV Guide

3.5/5 87% The Candidate (1972) The result is a fascinating film that sometimes feels like a documentary. Despite minor glitches, this is a prophetic glimpse of politics in the age of TV.‐ TV Guide

2.5/5 55% Step Brothers (2008) Has something that manages to hold it all together: The inspired pairing of Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly, two actors smart enough to play dumb and make it work.‐ TV Guide

2.5/5 53% Return to Oz (1985) There are some fine, Oscar-nominated special effects, but the excitement just isn't there.‐ TV Guide
Read More | Posted Dec 12, 2007
2.5/5 53% Mommie Dearest (1981) Joan Crawford (Dunaway, in a remarkable makeup job) comes off as a cartoon monster in this over-the-top biopic, which blithely mixes fact, legend, and -- especially --elements of Crawford's unique screen persona.‐ TV Guide

1.5/5 45% The Watcher in the Woods (1981) This tepid ghost story fails to focus on either its story or its target audience.‐ TV Guide

2.5/5 53% Die Hard: With a Vengeance (1995) Should make us all feel a little queasy after the Oklahoma City bombing.‐ TV Guide

1.5/5 38% Rocky IV (1985) A far cry from the delights (both large and small) of its illustrious original.‐ TV Guide
Read More | Posted Dec 19, 2006
3/5 100% The Clowns (I Clowns) (1970) This is the film's ultimate message: don't think so much and just try to have some fun.‐ TV Guide
Read More | Posted Aug 29, 2006
3.5/5 90% Overlord (1975) The overriding themes of the film are never broadly stated but are subtly revealed, and the horror and reality of war are quietly played out on both the human and panoramic levels with disturbing effect.‐ TV Guide
