Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
50% Salem's Lot (2004) It's just not particularly scary. Which is a problem for what's supposed to be a horror film‐ Deseret News (Salt Lake City)

17% The Diary of Ellen Rimbauer (2003) "Diary" isn't really scary or even creepy. And what's the use of a horror movie that isn't horrifying?‐ Deseret News (Salt Lake City)

29% The Tommyknockers (1993) In addition to its ponderous length, the other big problem with "The Tommyknockers" is its surprisingly unsympathetic cast of characters.‐ Deseret News (Salt Lake City)

52% Stephen King's 'The Langoliers' (1995) The cast, on the whole, creates believable characters in an unbelievable situation. ‐ Deseret News (Salt Lake City)

70% Hamlet (2000) It's a good adaptation with a fine cast.‐ Deseret News (Salt Lake City)

2.5/4 40% Maleficent: Mistress of Evil (2019) Outside of Maleficent herself, pretty much everyone struggles to get out of their two-dimensional holds, and the grandiose finale doesn't feel like the dramatic payoff it clearly wants to be.‐ Deseret News (Salt Lake City)

No Score Yet Going to the Mat (2004) "Going to the Mat" is actually pretty predictable. You aren't expecting something other than a happy ending from a Disney Channel movie, are you?‐ Deseret News (Salt Lake City)

No Score Yet Judith Krantz's 'Dazzle' (1995) CBS's "Judith Krantz's Dazzle" could have been a glitzy but entertaining soap opera.‐ Deseret News (Salt Lake City)

89% The Problem with Apu (2017) Kondabolu raises some troubling questions. I'll never be able to watch "The Simpsons" without thinking about this again.‐ Salt Lake Tribune

2.5/4 71% Happy Death Day (2017) Don't tell anybody, but I closed my eyes a few times when the music signaled the killer was on his-or-her way. And there's an unexpected death that caused me to jump and, ahem, audibly exclaim.‐ Salt Lake Tribune

No Score Yet From what TV critics have seen, Inhumans is awful.‐ Salt Lake Tribune

2.5/4 18% CHIPS (2017) Shepard and Peña are both so likable and have such great chemistry that, if you go in not expecting much, you just might be pleasantly surprised.‐ Salt Lake Tribune

3/4 75% Kong: Skull Island (2017) Kong sets out to be a first-rate monster movie, and it succeeds.‐ Salt Lake Tribune

3/4 93% Logan (2017) Jackman, who first starred as Logan/Wolverine 17 years ago, turns in a great performance. He's clearly relishing the chance to play the character one last time in a project that's not just a good superhero movie, but a good movie, period.‐ Salt Lake Tribune

2/4 36% The Great Wall (2017) The Great Wall is absolutely big. It's certainly dumb. But it's not much fun.‐ Salt Lake Tribune

50% Beaches (2017) Menzel has a spectacular voice. But ... she's not Bette Midler. And Beaches without Midler is just not the same thing. It's just not as good.‐ Salt Lake Tribune

1/4 31% Criminal (2016) What definitely doesn't redeem Criminal is when antisocial killer Jericho becomes the protector of Billy's widow (Gal Gadot) and daughter (Lara Decaro), which leads to a sappy ending that is predictable and ridiculous.‐ Salt Lake Tribune

92% Grease: Live! (2016) It wasn't perfect -- what stage show is? -- but it came off like, ahem, Greased Lightning.‐ Salt Lake Tribune
Read More | Posted Feb 1, 2016
3/4 68% The Night Before (2015) The Night Before is a Christmas movie with heart. A wildly profane, drug-addled, hedonistic Christmas movie with a heart.‐ Salt Lake Tribune

99% Gloria (2014) You can't help but like Gloria. Her life isn't easy, but you don't feel sorry for her.‐ Salt Lake Tribune

No Score Yet It's more exhausting than entertaining, unfortunately.‐ Salt Lake Tribune
