Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
16% Get Rich or Die Tryin' (2005) Tupac, you can sleep easy. Richard Pryor, watch out.‐ Daily Telegraph (UK)

60% Shopgirl (2005) Steve Martin's script sneers at the vanity of fake LA girls and their plastic surgery. He is in no position to sneer.‐ Daily Telegraph (UK)

62% Proof (2005) It's that breed of verbal swordplay that so impresses on stage while seeming so redundant and brittle on screen.‐ Daily Telegraph (UK)

90% Brief Encounter (1945) Lean's sad, buttoned-up account of unconsummated love is about all of us and our cautious natures.‐ Daily Telegraph (UK)

59% The Weather Man (2005) It's a deeply honest and comic performance and seems filled with all the genuine humiliations that one imagines Cage himself has suffered in the past 10 years.‐ Daily Telegraph (UK)

72% Syriana (2005) Syriana is an American movie that reaches out beyond itself. Watching it made me feel hopeful -- a rare sensation in a cinema.‐ Daily Telegraph (UK)

35% Memoirs of a Geisha (2005) Memoirs of a Geisha hurts the heart and the brain with its crushing monotony, inert, sub-human dialogue and Marshall's calculated attempt to sell us another Hollywood fairytale of prostitution.‐ Daily Telegraph (UK)

7% Date Movie (2006) Date Movie is the worst movie I have ever seen. I really mean that.‐ Daily Telegraph (UK)

90% Capote (2005) It's the acting that sings, especially when Hoffman duets with luminous Catherine Keener, the lady with the loveliest laugh in film. Hoffman's writer is a self-serving egoist; Keener's a restrained, wise soul.‐ Daily Telegraph (UK)

92% Grizzly Man (2005) Herzog has his documentary in hand, explaining that what we have here "iz on astone-ishing story of beauty and depth". He's not wrong.‐ Daily Telegraph (UK)

83% Walk the Line (2005) Walk the Line -- although conspicuously well acted -- is really no different from previous efforts, and that's a good thing. It shares the charm of the (musical biopic) genre.‐ Daily Telegraph (UK)

82% Tsotsi (Thug) (2006) The audience gasps in that odd mixture of surprise and recognition that great story-telling affords.‐ Daily Telegraph (UK)

73% V for Vendetta (2006) In the face of this film something adolescent in me surged to the surface and I mean that as a great compliment: adolescence is a state I hold in high regard.‐ Daily Telegraph (UK)

96% The Social Network (2010) In The Social Network Generation Facebook gets a movie almost worthy of them, and this fact, being so unexpected, makes the film feel more delightful than it probably, objectively, is.‐ The New York Review of Books

91% Anomalisa (2015) . . .sublime performances lend the film a rare aural self-sufficiency: you could close your eyes and still enjoy it.‐ The New York Review of Books

55% The Polar Express (2004) The rest is easily summarized: the Polar Express arrives, Hero Boy and some other dead-eyed zombie children get onboard. . .we reach the real Santa, who exists, and drops a little silver bell from his sleigh, which the boy later finds.‐ The New York Review of Books
