Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
97% Good Will Hunting (1997) The movie... [is] surprisingly moving, though resolutely unsentimental, rites-of-passage yarn.‐ Times-Picayune

3/4 98% Say Anything... (1989) What makes Crowe's film worth seeing...is the writer's care in developing characters and situations of infinitely greater credibility than those which litter 99 percent of today's adolescent screen romances.‐ Times-Picayune

62% The Sandlot (1993) After a "Porky's"-style segment dealing with puppy lust, the film then segues to its better second half.‐ Times-Picayune

2.5/4 93% The Last of the Mohicans (1992) "The Last of the Mohicans" is, in short, an adventure flick for the intellectually unadventurous.‐ Times-Picayune

94% Fargo (1996) This curiously overpraised yet solid effort by two of the foremost satirists of contemporary Americana again finds director Joel and writer-producer Ethan surveying the wreckage of our national innocence.‐ Times-Picayune

3.5/4 100% Toy Story (1995) [Tom] Hanks doesn't just speak lines, he gives a performance. ‐ Times-Picayune

55% Alien Resurrection (1997) Jeunet,... has both a pictorial imagination and a healthy sense of irony, qualities that may not have viewers on the edge of their seats but do tend to make "Resurrectoin" quirky fun.‐ Times-Picayune

44% Alien3 (1992) Unfortunately, David Fincher's "Alien 3" - though it's an honest attempt to sustain the creative level of the series - makes a good case for the idea of quitting while you're ahead.‐ Times-Picayune

3.5/4 93% Glory (1989) "Glory" is most memorable for some quieter scenes... that capture more elusive aspects of its story - and that help audiences to grasp the underlying significance of what the 54th achieved.‐ Times-Picayune

90% Misery (1990) Reiner's tense adaptation of Stephen King's first satisfying screen yarn in years is superbly paced, chock full of devilish plot twists and capable of lifting audiences inches off their seats.‐ Times-Picayune

2.5/4 89% Titanic (1997) See Titanic, then, for its success as an outrageous visual stunt -- a marvel of cinematic (and computer) sleight-of-hand. But don't go with any illusions that this soap opera on water is anything but a cartoon melodrama with fairy-tale leads.‐ Times-Picayune

2.5/4 78% GoldenEye (1995) It contains four or five humorous, intricately choreographed action sequences that -- while not as riveting as similar episodes in True Lies or Die Hard With a Vengeance -- are enjoyable on that idiot level that even critics possess.‐ Times-Picayune

91% Pulp Fiction (1994) A 2 1/2 -hour tour-de-force of personal style that (with the help of an extraordinary cast) creates more memorable characters than any other movie this year.‐ Times-Picayune
