Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
B+ 98% Grbavica (2007) This is a slice of Bosnian life, a powerful peek at average people trying to live their average lives despite the extraordinary and unthinkable things that lie in their past. ‐ Seattle Post-Intelligencer
Posted May 4, 2007
D+ 12% Little Man (2006) Thanks to the wonder of digital technology, Marlon's head was spliced onto the body of a dwarf actor, thus accomplishing what certainly will go down in history as one of the more profound cinematic achievements of our time. ‐ Seattle Post-Intelligencer
Posted Jul 13, 2006
D 13% Just My Luck (2006) Just My Luck is a deserted wasteland when it comes to funny. It's also boring, plain and simple. ‐ Seattle Post-Intelligencer
Posted May 11, 2006
C 44% Goal! The Dream Begins (Goal!: The Impossible Dream) (2005) Goal seems destined to be an ongoing soccer-themed soap opera, but it's one that only the game's biggest enthusiasts likely will find compelling. ‐ Seattle Post-Intelligencer
Posted May 11, 2006
B- 31% Valiant (2005) It's a tale with plenty of spirit and a good heart, and yet, this story doesn't so much soar across the screen as it does waddle. ‐ Seattle Post-Intelligencer
Posted May 2, 2006
B 87% The Beauty Academy of Kabul (2006) An often touching and always intriguing look at the fall and rebirth of a nation and the resilient spirit of its women. ‐ Seattle Post-Intelligencer
Posted May 2, 2006
B 68% Hard Candy (2006) Hard Candy is not perfect, but it is a provocative piece of filmmaking with a dark and daring heart that makes it worth seeing. ‐ Seattle Post-Intelligencer
Posted May 2, 2006
C 23% RV (2006) RV is a family-friendly comedy with some gut-shaking chuckles and a heartwarming message. Sadly, it's also a fine example of what happens when talented people settle for utter mediocrity. ‐ Seattle Post-Intelligencer
Posted Apr 27, 2006
B 57% Kinky Boots (2006) Strives to be nothing more than a sweetheart of a little comedy with a big human heart and some genuinely funny moments. And in that, it succeeds. ‐ Seattle Post-Intelligencer
Posted Apr 20, 2006
D 62% Abominable (2006) One of those fright fests that isn't so much frightening as it is funny... and not in a good way. ‐ Seattle Post-Intelligencer
Posted Apr 13, 2006
B 86% Slither (2006) Slither is a funny, freaky, fiendishly good flick that might just find a following beyond the standard cadre of horror fanatics. ‐ Seattle Post-Intelligencer
Posted Mar 30, 2006
B 43% She's the Man (2006) As teen comedies go, this one hits most of the right marks. The cast is solid. The story is fast-paced and funny. And most importantly, I laughed and laughed. ‐ Seattle Post-Intelligencer
Posted Mar 16, 2006
C 51% Aquamarine (2006) While both Splash and The Little Mermaid are movies that have no shortage of cross-generational appeal, Aquamarine is destined to swim in a much shallower pool of fans. ‐ Seattle Post-Intelligencer
Posted Mar 2, 2006
C 32% Tristan & Isolde (2006) How strange it is to see a film that's supposed to be all about the burning passion and unquenchable exhilaration of true love, and yet is rather passionless and unexhilarating. ‐ Seattle Post-Intelligencer
Posted Jan 12, 2006
B 75% Zathura (2005) Highlights those things that seem to be important to the author: imagination, creativity and family. ‐ Seattle Post-Intelligencer
Posted Nov 10, 2005
B 58% The Weather Man (2005) Cage is always most enjoyable when he's digging into deeper, more personal territory and he's in fine form as David Spritz. ‐ Seattle Post-Intelligencer
Posted Oct 28, 2005
B 49% Alfie (2004) It's a true joy to watch Susan Sarandon, who reprises Shelley Winters' role, deliver Alfie his due, and newcomer Sienna Miller does an excellent turn as a downward-spiraling party girl. ‐ Seattle Post-Intelligencer
Posted Nov 4, 2004
C- 15% Raise Your Voice (2004) Both truly wholesome and wholly uninteresting. ‐ Seattle Post-Intelligencer
Posted Oct 7, 2004
C- 8% First Daughter (2004) As the movie gropes its way to a predictable-if-unsatisfying end, the ultimate message that greets the audience is this: If you're patient and act like a good girl, Daddy and Mommy will eventually give you what you want: Your very own car! ‐ Seattle Post-Intelligencer
Posted Oct 6, 2004
B- 25% The Princess Diaries 2 - Royal Engagement (2004) Fans of the first Princess Diaries will find enough laughs and diamonds in the rough to sustain them. ‐ Seattle Post-Intelligencer
Posted Aug 13, 2004
B 36% Touch of Pink (2004) It provides plenty of laughs to make it enjoyable and enough substance to make it worth your time. ‐ Seattle Post-Intelligencer
Posted Aug 5, 2004
D- 9% Catwoman (2004) So much talent wasted. So much money squandered. So much opportunity missed. ‐ Seattle Post-Intelligencer
Posted Jul 22, 2004
D 11% A Cinderella Story (2004) Alas, the attempts by writer Leigh Dunlap and director Mark Rosman to modernize this fable fall flatter than Cinderella's arches after a night of dancing on glass slippers. ‐ Seattle Post-Intelligencer
Posted Jul 15, 2004
C 11% New York Minute (2004) The film rests on a contrived and predictable plot. ‐ Seattle Post-Intelligencer
