88% Heaven Can Wait (1978) " [The film] has everything going for it: big laughs, populist politics, billowy sequences set in heaven, a murder plot, a climactic Super Bowl game, a supporting cast of choice comic actors, and best of all, a touching (but PG) romance." — TIME Magazine

Posted Jul 18, 2008
86% The Black Stallion (1979) " Ballard's sumptuous images exist only to distract from his rather conventional failings of craftsmanship." — TIME Magazine
Posted Dec 11, 2007
