Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
86% Timmy Failure: Mistakes Were Made (2020) With its delicate balance of fanciful story and real-world details, "Timmy Failure: Mistakes Were Made" is entertaining both for kids and for adults. ‐ Oregonian

98% Deadwood: The Movie (2019) As with the original series, what's exceptional about "Deadwood: The Movie" isn't the story, but the gallery of characters created by Milch, and the extraordinary cast.‐ Oregonian

74% The Wizard of Lies (2017) The Wizard of Lies spends much of its overlong two hours and 15 minutes running time repeating how Madoff's crimes victimized members of his family.‐ Oregonian

69% The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks (2017) It's a shame The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks wasn't adapted as a miniseries. The amazing true story deserves an adaptation that does justice both to Henrietta Lacks, and to Skloot's achievement.‐ Oregonian

63% Killing Reagan (2016) Killing Reagan, which airs on the National Geographic Channel on Sunday, Oct. 16, feels rushed and incomplete, compressing this historic episode into a flat pancake of pointlessness.‐ Oregonian

83% Confirmation (2016) What keeps Confirmation watchable are vivid performances by a terrific cast. Washington - freed from the overacting mandate that seems part of the Scandal cast playbook - is subtle and moving as Hill.‐ Oregonian

No Score Yet Robinson lived a historic life. But the achievement of Jackie Robinson is that it shows us the man in full dimension, placing him in rich context.‐ Oregonian

91% The Wiz Live! (2015) From the sets and digital effects to Kenny Leon's direction and Fatima Robinson's choreography, the show looked pretty close to ready for Broadway ‐ Oregonian

36% Sharknado 3: Oh Hell No! (2015) By this stage, the joke is beyond played-out.‐ Oregonian

86% 7 Days in Hell (2015) With its nutty playfulness, 7 Days in Hell is 45 minutes of fast-moving, goofy fun.‐ Oregonian

97% Kurt Cobain: Montage Of Heck (2015) "Montage of Heck" doesn't shock us with any new revelations, but it goes deep - sometimes, uncomfortably so - inside Cobain's messy, restlessly creative, emotionally complex soul.‐ Oregonian

95% Going Clear: Scientology and the Prison of Belief (2015) While "Going Clear" is unapologetically one-sided in its dim view of Scientology, the issues it raises ... will make you think about the film long after it's over.‐ Oregonian

56% Peter Pan Live! (2014) Except for the occasional Christopher Walken as Captain Hook oddity, Peter Pan Live! became a dutiful, perfectly fine, surprisingly dull evening of television.‐ Oregonian
