Out to Sea (1997)
"A delightful comedy."
Grumpier Old Men (1995)
"Not as good as the first, but it's seldom less than amusing."
The Odd Couple (1968)
"It's just one hilarious situation after another in this classic comedy about two polar opposites (one compulsively neat, the other a slob) forced to live together."
The Odd Couple II (1998)
"A big letdown. They waited 30 years to follow-up a classic comedy with this? Sadly, the final film Lemmon and Matthau did together is also the pair's weakest."
Species II (1998)
"A totally unnecessary sequel that will likely only please 12-year-old boys."
"An enjoyable creature feature where the creature just happens to mask itself as a beautiful, often-naked blonde. Nothing more than a big-budget exploitation flick, but it has some good shock moments."
Unlawful Entry (1992)
"This well-done suspense-thriller is a variation of the Fatal Attraction theme with Ray Liotta as the cop from hell."
The Avengers (1998)
"Running a scant 90 minutes, it often feels as if a couple reels ended up on the cutting-room floor. Connery is absolutely delightful, though."
Saving Private Ryan (1998)
"The opening 30 minutes are so devastating that much of what follows ends up feeling anticlimactic. Good, but overrated."
Lethal Weapon 4 (1998)
"A moderately entertaining entry in an overrated series that sorely lacks the hard-edged toughness director Walter Hill brought to his two superior 48 HRS films."
Bride of Chucky (1998)
"A hilariously campy and surprisingly diverting horror sequel that's always smartly aware of its own ridiculousness."
Child's Play (1988)
"An inadvertently silly but effective shocker. Director Tom Holland definitely knows how to spin a scary yarn."
John Carpenter's Vampires (1998)
"Woods is entertaining as badass vampire hunter Jack Crow, but the meanness he exhibits toward his young priest assistant is offensive and completely unnecessary. Still, this is Carpenter's best film since the 1980s ended."
Very Bad Things (1998)
"A vicious, disturbing black comedy that delivers a wickedly entertaining ride if you don't take it too seriously."
Flesh And Bone (1993)
"A downbeat, elegiac mood piece and character study about angry, damaged people whose lives are as desolate as the dusty West Texas landscape they inhabit."
Guilty as Sin (1993)
"One of the good "yuppies-in-jeopardy" thrillers that were so prevalent in the early 1990s."
"This biography of rock diva Tina Turner's turbulent life is filled with energetic musical numbers and emotionally charged moments, all anchored by two outstanding lead performances."
The Firm (1993)
"What starts out as interesting becomes increasingly hokey and silly -- Wilford Brimley is ludicrously cast as the firm's senior hit man -- where it should be intense and suspenseful."
Jurassic Park (1993)
"An innovative, ingenious and spectacular sci-fi adventure. The special effects are truly dazzling."
The Hard Way (1991)
"An underrated buddy flick with an original twist and some outstanding stunt work."
"A gripping manhunt thriller that's also part buddy movie and part outdoor, man-against-the-elements adventure. Might have been taken for granted in 1988, but Shoot to Kill is a corker by today's standards."
True Lies (1994)
"One of the best mega-budgeted summer blockbusters of the modern era. A deft blend of thrilling action and edgy comedy."
Midnight Run (1988)
"While other films may have won awards that year, Midnight Run is really the best film of 1988."
The Postman (1997)
"The first half of Costner's The Postman is actually quite interesting, but it falters badly in the second half with a few unintentional howlers."
"Despite being hampered by second-rate special effects and too many action film cliches, Soldier does have its fun parts."
Rising Sun (1993)
"An intriguing, sensual whodunit that would have been even better had it not succumb to political correctness and changed the identity of the killer from Crichton's novel."
"One can't help but laugh at Short's nutty rendition of an unctous little 10-year-old devil, and Grodin's angry reactions are equally funny as his increasingly exasperated uncle."
"A first-rate nail-biter that packs more genuine white-knuckle moments into 100 minutes than a dozen overpriced volcano movies could ever dream of having."
A Perfect World (1993)
"A tender, poignant, ultimately heartbreaking film filled with haunting, lasting images and nicely eccentric touches. Arguably Costner's best performance, and one of Eastwood's most underrated efforts behind the camera."
The Fugitive (1993)
"A hair-raising, adrenaline-charged chase movie."
"Suspenseless, plastic and contrived. Rent Best Seller, The Professional or The Mechanic instead, all far superior films about professional hit men."
"A complex and haunting Old-West morality tale...Thanks Clint, for once again making my day."
In the Line of Fire (1993)
"Commercial entertainment at its finest. A first-class, exceptionally well-made thriller."
"A high-energy road thriller with a time-travel twist. A fast, fun 90 minutes."
16 Blocks (2006)
"An understatedly suspenseful drama with both Fonda and Redgrave giving impassioned performances."
Running Scared (2006)
Johnstown Flood (2003)
The Adventurers (1970)
"I found much of this irreverent modernization of A Christmas Carol to be hilarious, and I commend Murray and director Donner for giving their film a sardonic edge."
"There's plenty of big laughs in this odd-couple comedy, but the main characters are also given a number of human moments, which leads to an ending that's downright poignant."
A Christmas Story (1983)
"Funny, touching and unabashedly nostalgic. A true classic."
"Even showing lots of Bo Derek's beautiful nude body isn't enough to save Bolero from terminal boredom."
The 40 Year Old Virgin (2005)
The Big Lebowski (1998)
Save the Tiger (1973)
"A mind-blowing telekinesis thriller that immediately put Michael Ironside on the map as one of the most intense actors around."
Hot Stuff (1979)
"A funny little crime comedy that's worth seeing alone for a hysterical scene where Dom DeLuise has a laughing fit while smoking a joint."
