Charlie Bartlett (2007)

"Poll and screenwriter Gustin Nash may be paying homage, here, but they also bring to the table a comparable depth of thought and characterization."

Another You (1991)

"Pathetic attempt to recapture the vanished magic of a once-effective comedy team."

Cry Freedom (1987)

"Often harrowing and naturalistic but ultimately self-important in its indictment of police-state politics."

Cinderella Man (2005)

"'The film is ... as rich in Depression-era authenticity as such a picture gets, complete with a palpable air of social decay and personalized despondency.'"

Tales of Terror (1962)

"Among the least of the Corman-Price Poe pictures, but rendered imperishable by its hilarious/horrific wine-tasting scene between Peter Lorre and Vincent Price."

Invaders from Mars (1953)

"Wm. Cameron Menzies' almost-masterpiece of Cold War paranoia, bracing and impactful despite some conspicuous gaffes in the costuming-and-effects department. The underlying beauty of it all is a tacit understanding that yes, It Can, Too, Happen Here."

Pray for Death (1985)

"Depends upon which cut you've seen, whether the movie is any good or night. The pre-ratings original is pure ferocity, where the butchered American version comes off more like refried Jackie Chan."

Aliens of the Deep (2005)

The Boy With Green Hair (1948)

"A peculiar mixing of bigot-buster and pacifist sensibilities, rendered largely incoherent on account of Howard Hughes' attempts to transform the piece into a pro-war tract. Strange that such a safe-as-milk picture could have caused many of its talents to"

Beyond the Sea (2004)
