Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
31% 70th Emmy Awards (2018) These Emmys were briskly paced and deeply tepid. Che and Jost, the least famous hosts in almost a decade, were almost willfully unmemorable.‐ Slate

45% 90th Academy Awards (2018) At the end of the evening Dunaway and Beatty presented the Oscar, with no hiccups, to The Shape of Water, an undramatic end to an undramatic evening.‐ Slate

60% David Brent: Life on the Road (2017) Maudlin and unrealistic, it's also a lot less funny than what came before.‐ Slate

91% The Wiz Live! (2015) As much as Dorothy wants to go home, the Scarecrow needs a brain, the Tin-Man desires a heart, or the Cowardly Lion longs for a spine, NBC coveted a hit: The Wizard delivered.‐ Slate

94% The Normal Heart (2014) The Normal Heart is a blunt, effective instrument, a handsome, walloping cudgel that begins in gay paradise on the eve of the apocalypse: Fire Island, 1982. ‐ Slate

79% Veronica Mars (2014) I don't know how much money Veronica Mars will make, or how much money it has to make to be deemed a success, but as means of fan-satisfaction it is a needle to a major vein.‐ Slate

52% Flowers in the Attic (2014) Flowers in the Attic acts as if it is just another life-affirming Lifetime movie about surviving terrible situations. ‐ Slate

59% Clear History (2013) As the movie proceeds, it gains traction, first as a kind of pleasant alt-Woody Allen vehicle... and then as a well-modulated morality play. ‐ Slate

95% Behind the Candelabra (2013) [Soderbergh's] total avoidance of camp and his deeply sympathetic treatment of both major characters is a way... to make Liberace and Thorson people, not stereotypes.‐ Salon.com
