Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
B+ 59% Face (2002) Bertha Bay-Sa Pan gets good performances -- notably from Ling, who convincingly evolves from mixed-up coed to successful businesswoman.‐ E! Online

B- 69% Brothers in Arms (2003) Serviceable, not high ranking.‐ E! Online

C 45% Redacted (2007) De Palma's indignation is palpable, but he shoots himself in the filmmaking foot with a showy, self-conscious style that's more about the medium than the message.‐ E! Online

C+ 74% Conversations With Other Women (2006) It's hard to imagine a Gallic film would make such an issue of Carter's character being over the hill at 40 or straight-facedly claiming that Eckhart is fat by any reasonable definition.‐ E! Online

C+ 90% Half Nelson (2006) Here's a good rule of thumb: When you have 30 minutes worth of material, don't try to stretch it out to an hour and a half. Please.‐ E! Online

B- 47% Miami Vice (2006) Throwing in several snarly baddies and lots of speeding boats and planes and cars -- plus, a cool climactic shootout -- Mann's the man for creating foreboding environments and intense action sequences.‐ E! Online

A- 91% Little Miss Sunshine (2006) Consistently fresh and gut-bustingly funny.‐ E! Online
Read More | Posted Jul 27, 2006
C+ 75% Monster House (2006) Monster House tries to straddle the line between childhood and puberty to little effect; it's adult enough to hint at consequence, but not enough to follow through.‐ E! Online
Read More | Posted Jul 21, 2006
C+ 19% Shadowboxer (2005) The artificially staged and lush visuals are at such odds with the reserved, subtle performances that you'll wish director Lee Daniels had done away with the pretense and just pointed the camera at the actors and yelled 'Action!'‐ E! Online
Read More | Posted Jul 20, 2006
B- 40% My Super Ex-Girlfriend (2006) There's no real insight into relationships, or superheroes for that matter, just a pleasant enough date movie for geeks -- and the guys who love them.‐ E! Online
Read More | Posted Jul 20, 2006
B+ 64% Clerks II (2006) Clerks II is much better than most might expect, a sign that the slacker flag may be slightly older and slightly wiser, but is still flying high.‐ E! Online
Read More | Posted Jul 20, 2006
B- 25% Lady in the Water (2006) There's something exhilarating yet corny about watching all the pieces snap into place, even if you saw the pattern a mile away. It feels like you had to figure out some great mystery, even if M. Night did all the work for you.‐ E! Online

C+ 12% Little Man (2006) We went to this movie to laugh. Instead, we left yearning for a baby to cuddle. Ew.‐ E! Online
Read More | Posted Jul 15, 2006
B+ 81% Once in a Lifetime: The Extraordinary Story of the New York Cosmos (2006) A spot-on goal.‐ E! Online
Read More | Posted Jul 14, 2006
C 22% The Oh in Ohio (2006) The OH In Ohio deserves credit for bringing up some sexual-experimentation taboos, but since the film never does more than nimbly skirt them rather than challenge them head-on, the proceedings are ho-hum.‐ E! Online
Read More | Posted Jul 13, 2006
B 20% You, Me and Dupree (2006) Third wheel's a charm when the person happens to be Owen Wilson, indulging us yet again with his lovable-slacker persona.‐ E! Online
Read More | Posted Jul 13, 2006
C 68% A Scanner Darkly (2006) Very ambitious and only mildly engaging.‐ E! Online
Read More | Posted Jul 7, 2006
A- 53% Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest (2006) The filmmakers stuck that mushy stuff on the back burner in favor of more cool things to keep your inner eight-year-old jumping up and down in your seat. Yo ho ho!‐ E! Online
Read More | Posted Jul 6, 2006
B- 52% Strangers with Candy (2005) This prequel doesn't take it much further than the expected offbeat grossness, strident political incorrectness and moments of pleasing -- if uncomfortable -- weirdness.‐ E! Online
Read More | Posted Jul 1, 2006
C 38% Wassup Rockers (2006) The movie looks great, but there's not much to it.‐ E! Online
Read More | Posted Jun 30, 2006
B 75% The Devil Wears Prada (2006) [Streep] chows down on this meaty role with relish and smartly dimensionalizes her demonic diva (some sympathy for the Devil?), so she's both satisfyingly ruthless and scarifyingly real.‐ E! Online
Read More | Posted Jun 30, 2006
A 89% Who Killed the Electric Car? (2006) ... entertains and educates at the same time.‐ E! Online
Read More | Posted Jun 27, 2006
B+ 75% Superman Returns (2006) When the film lets Superman do his thing, it really flies, with thrilling action sequences and a fanboy's sense of what the Man Of Steel can really do.‐ E! Online

A- 94% Wordplay (2006) Word nerds get their props in this gleefully geeked-out doc.‐ E! Online
Read More | Posted Jun 24, 2006
B 69% Leonard Cohen: I'm Your Man (2006) Leonard Cohen, the darkly rumbling hipster-Buddhist-poet-troubadour gets his own loving tribute in this concert film/testimonial.‐ E! Online
Read More | Posted Jun 23, 2006
B 86% The Road To Guantanamo (2006) It's an important story to tell, but the execution isn't all it could be. We'd like to give the Gitmo parts an A and the rest a C-, but that averages out to an overall B.‐ E! Online
Read More | Posted Jun 23, 2006
C+ 33% Click (2006) Believe it or not, the gross out jokes won't leave a bad taste in the mouth; the gushy life lessons will.‐ E! Online
Read More | Posted Jun 23, 2006
C- 28% Waist Deep (2006) Waist Deep turns out to be a shallow waste.‐ E! Online
Read More | Posted Jun 22, 2006
C 35% The Lake House (2006) Bullock and Reeves have appealing chemistry and some nice tearjerker moments, but audiences should speed by this House on their way elsewhere.‐ E! Online
Read More | Posted Jun 15, 2006
C- 18% Loverboy (2006) Sedgwick does her best with the material, but the script is enamored with cloying dialogue and irritating voiceover, and Bacon's direction relies on shtick and gimmicks. We got no love for Loverboy.‐ E! Online
Read More | Posted Jun 15, 2006
B- 37% The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift (2006) Depending on your appetite for great stunts and bad drama, you'll either find this full-bore entertainment or just fully boring.‐ E! Online
Read More | Posted Jun 15, 2006
C 39% Nacho Libre (2006) We love pratfalls and physical humor, but Libre isn't a comedy vehicle. It just sits there, making you wish Pedro or Uncle Rico would blast into the scene and make something happen. Tragically, they don't.‐ E! Online

D 11% Garfield: A Tail of Two Kitties (2006) Cat fanciers and five-year-olds will have a great time, but everyone else will likely find themselves wishing they'd buried this one in the litter box.‐ E! Online
Read More | Posted Jun 15, 2006
B+ 87% The Heart of the Game (2005) the real star of the show is Resler himself -- a sports fanatic whose commitment to the game he loves changes the lives of the girls who play for him.‐ E! Online
Read More | Posted Jun 9, 2006
B+ 82% A Prairie Home Companion (2006) In the end, the movie's wistful, warm-hearted ways win its audience over to the light side, just like Keillor wants it.‐ E! Online
Read More | Posted Jun 8, 2006
C 75% Cars (2006) Thank God for the technical glory of Pixar, because if we had to rely on script and performances, Cars would crash and burn.‐ E! Online
Read More | Posted Jun 8, 2006
C- 26% The Omen (2006) You'd think they could have delivered the end of the world with a bang instead of a yawn.‐ E! Online
Read More | Posted Jun 6, 2006
B+ 34% The Break-Up (2006) An eye for the devil in the details gives the story its heart -- a broken heart, but that's better than none at all.‐ E! Online
Read More | Posted Jun 1, 2006
A- 80% District B13 (Banlieue 13) (2006) A die-hard, kinetically charged action film with the kind of shocks and starts that feel truly earned: for once, here's something you might not have seen before, and with no strings attached.‐ E! Online
Read More | Posted Jun 1, 2006
C 25% Peaceful Warrior (2006) If you're looking for earnest wisdoms delivered with all the subtlety of a sledgehammer to the skull, look no further than the screen adaptation of Dan Millman's self-help bestseller, The Way of the Peaceful Warrior.‐ E! Online
Read More | Posted Jun 1, 2006
A- 93% An Inconvenient Truth (2006) A stern warning and a call to arms, a must-see for anyone who hopes to save the world from ignorance and inaction.‐ E! Online
Read More | Posted May 26, 2006
A- 57% X-Men: The Last Stand (2006) Let's hope this isn't the Last we see of these mutants.‐ E! Online
Read More | Posted May 26, 2006
B+ 73% Twelve and Holding (2006) Think you'd wanna be twelve again? Twelve makes you think again.‐ E! Online
Read More | Posted May 20, 2006
F 9% See No Evil (2006) At best, it's an example of what not to do with your low-budget slasher flick.‐ E! Online
Read More | Posted May 19, 2006
B+ 75% Over the Hedge (2006) DreamWorks is still no Pixar, but the laughs are definitely there, and the defiant jab at conspicuous consumption is utterly satisfying.‐ E! Online
Read More | Posted May 19, 2006
B- 56% The King (2006) It's too full of tired clichis to be the Night of the Hunter it wants to be, but it tries its best, and the top-notch performances from Bernal and Hurt carry the deadweight.‐ E! Online
Read More | Posted May 18, 2006
C+ 26% The Da Vinci Code (2006) Holy controversy, it's...underwhelming!‐ E! Online
Read More | Posted May 18, 2006
C+ 42% Goal! The Dream Begins (Goal!: The Impossible Dream) (2005) Emotionally, Goal! doesn't score any points.‐ E! Online
Read More | Posted May 12, 2006
D 14% Just My Luck (2006) ... this movie takes place in a bizarro world Manhattan where logic is irrelevant and real human behavior takes a back seat to shtick.‐ E! Online
Read More | Posted May 12, 2006
C 36% Keeping Up With The Steins (2006) The uneven humor, relying too heavily on stereotypes, leaves a distinctively sitcomy aftertaste.‐ E! Online
