T-Meter Title | Year
45% Camp Rock (2008) Camp Rock is exactly what you'd expect it to be: silly, sometimes sweet, occasionally confusing, aggressively perky and brimming with disposable pop songs about being true to yourself. - Houston Chronicle EDIT

No Score Yet Travis Scott: Look Mom I Can Fly (2019) The film is another jewel in Scott's grill, a way to neatly contain so much movement and madness. It's a terrific showcase for his unique approach to music and live shows. - Houston Chronicle EDIT

3/4 51% Notorious (2009) A vivid biopic of the larger-than-life rap star that doesn't require you be a big fan of the genre. - Houston Chronicle EDIT

2.5/4 67% Cadillac Records (2008) Martin could have made a much more compelling film by focusing on just a few characters instead of trying to deconstruct an entire record label. - Houston Chronicle EDIT

2.5/4 25% El Cantante (2007) The film's first half is an uneven string of scenes that offer little setup and sometimes confuse. - Houston Chronicle EDIT

2/4 No Score Yet Guadalupe (2006) The real problem is that none of the character arcs are taken any further than a basic outline. - Houston Chronicle EDIT

2/4 50% Coffee Date (2006) Coffee Date has lots going on, and its message -- there are all kinds of love - is an earnest one. But the script relies too heavily on stock characters and overused plot devices to make any real impact. - Houston Chronicle EDIT

3/4 70% POV (2006) A sentimental valentine to a man who, underneath it all, simply wants to move people with his message. - Houston Chronicle EDIT

2.5/4 No Score Yet Meet Me In Miami (2006) What sets this fluffy, ultimately enjoyable trifle apart is that it doesn't make a big deal about its cross-cultural cast. The characters are presented as individuals, rather than sweeping representations of a group or race. - Houston Chronicle EDIT

1/4 35% Scary Movie 4 (2006) Four installments later, the horror-movie jokes have gotten broader, grosser and just plain dumber. - Houston Chronicle EDIT

2.5/4 82% Screen Door Jesus (2005) Despite the conflicting statements on faith and religion, revenge and forgiveness, and sex and love, the divergent arguments are ultimately part of the ramshackle grace and peculiar charm of this modest, frequently-satisfying film. - Houston Chronicle EDIT

3/4 52% Garçon Stupide (2005) Tender moments of grace and a mutual respect between the filmmaker and his subject shine through. - Houston Chronicle EDIT

2.5/4 52% Cote d'Azur (2005) It's all lots of fun while it lasts, but you'll likely forget about it as soon as the credits roll. - Houston Chronicle EDIT

2/4 32% Pretty Persuasion (2005) The screenplay by Skander Halim falters. It's too convoluted and cloudy to have the intended effect. - Houston Chronicle EDIT

3/4 No Score Yet Beyond the Gates of Splendor (2002) Hanon doesn't sensationalize his potentially fantastic subject matter; instead, he lets the real words and pictures tell the story. - Houston Chronicle EDIT
