T-Meter Title | Year
78% The Jazz Singer (1927) Sitting through The Jazz Singer is very much like attending a very ordinary musical comedy with one star who happens to be good. The star cannot always be on the scene and the evening develops into a series of long waits. - New York Post EDIT

93% Wings (1927) A great deal of sentimental and weepy material is thrust into the tale here and there, along with long stretches of what may be termed for want of a better designation, "just war." - New York Post EDIT

80% The Private Life of Helen of Troy (1927) [The Private Life of Helen of Troy] is a comic-strip version of modern marriage set against a background supposed to represent ancient Sparta and Troy. The incongruity furnishes amusement for about five minutes. - New York Post EDIT

70% Rolled Stockings (1927) Rolled Stockings, in all probibility, is just a catchy title found lying about the Paramount offices shrieking to be used. It has nothing to do with the story. - New York Post EDIT

94% Faust (1926) It can be said without exaggeration that each individual scene in this production is in itself a perfect picture. - New York Post EDIT

100% Battleship Potemkin (1925) Potemkin tells, with a good deal of striking detail and with considerable pictorial effectiveness, a stern narrative of mutiny and revolt. - New York Post EDIT

96% The Cat and the Canary (1927) Mr. Leni has screened this ordinary melodrama in so masterly a fashion as to place it among the productions which must been seen by any one interested in moving pictures. - New York Post EDIT

89% That Royle Girl (1925) All this, to be sure, hardly sounds like material for a D.W. Griffith photoplay, but the evidence Is quite indisputable. - New York Post EDIT

No Score Yet After Midnight (1927) Miss Shearer, possessed of more charm and ability than most Hollywood stars, seems doomed to play in productions which do not merit the attention. - New York Post EDIT

No Score Yet Breakfast At Sunrise (1927) Breakfast At Sunrise is only moderately entertaining movie matter, far below the previous standard of both Miss Talmadge and Mr. St. Clair. - New York Post EDIT

No Score Yet The Living Dead Man (Feu Mathias Pascal) (1926) Though it is somewhat too long and a trifle tiresome at times there is a mad humor about the film which makes it worth seeing. - New York Post EDIT

No Score Yet Crainquebille (1923) Always delightful. - New York Post EDIT

No Score Yet Quality Street (1927) A delightful affair, beautifully directed by Sidney Franklin and acted by a cast more than competently -- with the exception of Miss Davies herself. - New York Post EDIT

No Score Yet Hands Up (1926) It is a program comedy that is better and certainly much funnier than most such comedies. - New York Post EDIT
Read More | Posted Sep 22, 2020
No Score Yet The Sea Beast (1926) Some vigorous plying of scissors to the tasteless areas and The Sea Beast could be made into a better-than-average-program picture. - New York Post EDIT

67% She's a Sheik (1927) A refreshing picture which dares to laugh at movies in general. - New York Post EDIT

100% What Price Glory (1926) Creditable, entertaining, often picturesque, if you will, but not a gripping, vital piece of work. - New York Post EDIT
Read More | Posted Sep 22, 2020
No Score Yet Man, Woman and Sin (1927) Man, Woman And Sin is a thoughtful, intelligent story of youthful disillusionment told entirely in terms of pictures by a director of imagination and skill. - New York Post EDIT
Read More | Posted Sep 21, 2020
No Score Yet The Road to Yesterday (1925) The Road to Yesterday is not, probably, the stupidest picture we ever saw, but it is, nevertheless, very, very dull, and well-nigh unintelligible as well. - New York Post EDIT

No Score Yet Barbed Wire (1927) Miss Negri's performance throughout the picture Is unusually good, and the work of Clive Brook as the German prisoner is likewise impressive. - New York Post EDIT

No Score Yet Beau Geste (1926) For these scenes In the desert alone Beau Geste is worth a visit to the [theater]. It is good entertainment. - New York Post EDIT

No Score Yet The Sorrows of Satan (1926) All this is undoubtedly effective as far as it goes. - New York Post EDIT

86% Moana (1926) [Moana] appears for all the world like a somewhat glorified travel film, longer and undoubtedly more beautiful than most, but not, surely, deserving quite all of the lavish praise which has, from time to time, been showered upon it. - New York Post EDIT

No Score Yet The Grand Duchess and the Waiter (1926) Sophisticated comedy it is, and well done, too, in every department. - New York Post EDIT

No Score Yet Behind the Front (1926) If we must have Beery-Hatton comedy, let us hereafter have Beery-Hatton comedy which does not seem merely a faint, useless burlesque of another film. - New York Post EDIT

75% Babe Comes Home (1927) Mr. Ruth, making his screen debut, appeared at ease and pleasantly unconscious of the camera. - New York Post EDIT

60% Warning Shadows (1922) Numerous lights and shades are certainly in evidence, with the shadows, unfortunately, predominating to such a degree that the spectator is often left entirely in the dark as to what is going on. - New York Post EDIT

98% Sunrise: A Song of Two Humans (1927) Any one who prefers an intelligent and stimulating film to the usual trash is urged to go and see it for himself. - New York Post EDIT
