"A bawdy good time. All but stolen by Charles Durning as the sidestepping governor and Dom DeLuise as the leader of the decency police."
"Burt is at his most appealing and self-deprecating playing a character much like himself at the time: A single, middle-age lothario longing to have a child. Charming and funny."
The Cannonball Run (1981)
"Amiable, lightweight fun. Captain Chaos saves the day."
"This is the disaster that occurred when they tried to make another Smokey and the Bandit sequel without the Bandit -- Burt Reynolds only has a brief cameo at the end. Jackie Gleason still has a few funny moments, but it's all pretty desperate."
Smokey and the Bandit II (1980)
"Fizzles badly after a hilarious first half-hour or so."
Smokey and the Bandit (1977)
"A raucous blast with plenty of great lines. Gleason is an absolute riot."
Rocky III (1982)
Rocky II (1979)
Rocky IV (1985)
The Turning Point (1977)
Prime Cut (1972)
The Longest Yard (1974)
The Detective (1968)
"Nicholson's intense, volcanic performance saves this part-fact, part-fiction biopic that's a little too in awe of its subject."
"That Martin Scorsese's brilliant GoodFellas lost the 1990 Best Picture and Best Director Oscars to Dances with Wolves is one of the all-time miscarriages of justice in the history of the Academy Awards."
Wild Bill (1995)
"A rare Walter Hill movie that just didn't work for me."
What About Bob? (1991)
"A delightful annoying-person comedy made even more amusing by the fact that Murray and Dreyfuss couldn't stand one another in real life."
The Untouchables (1987)
"De Palma's masterpiece is an exhilarating, moving and larger-than-life cops vs. crooks epic. Connery and De Niro steal the show in charismatic supporting turns. The best film of 1987."
Omen IV - The Awakening (1991)
"A really lame made-for-television attempt to keep the Omen series going."
Omen III: The Final Conflict (1981)
"The third best of the Omen films, but still a satisfying conclusion to a great trilogy."
Damien---Omen II (1978)
"Not a great film like the original, but this remains a wildly entertaining sequel full of memorable death scenes."
Night Game (1989)
"An average serial-killer thriller made watchable by the always interesting Roy Scheider."
The Passage (1979)
"A lurid, exciting World War II chase thriller with Malcolm McDowell chewing the scenery as a sadistic Nazi."
"A nifty futuristic thriller which effectively casts rock-star Gene Simmons as a very bad guy who just oozes evil. A fun flick."
52 Pick-Up (1986)
"Roy Scheider is at his hard-boiled best and John Glover is a loathsomely slimy villain in this tough thriller that was quite graphic for its time. Sometimes unpleasant, but always interesting."
Opposing Force (1986)
"An effective, but little-known action-thriller about a military-training exercise taken too far by a crazy commanding officer."
"A must-see for fans of hard-hitting action."
Lethal Weapon 2 (1989)
"Too jokey and cutesy. This is where the series took a wrong turn toward too much comedy, but the public didn't seem to mind."
Fast Break (1979)
"A hugely likable basketball comedy. Gabe Kaplan is so appealing here that you wonder why he didn't become a bigger star."
"Never scary or suspenseful, and only succeeds at being sleazy and unpleasant. It's easy to see why this stinker never got a theatrical release."
The Final Countdown (1980)
"One of the better time-travel movies. Generates lots of suspense because it's directed and acted with a great deal of conviction. John Scott's musical score is outstanding."
"A mediocre sequel that lacks the punch of its highly entertaining predecessor."
"A clever, lightning-paced thriller about a Tom Savini-style special effects artist who becomes a pawn in the scheme of some rogue government agents. A surprise modest hit in 1986."
Night of the Juggler (1980)
"A rough and gripping action-thriller about an ordinary man's desperate search to find his kidnapped little girl. Gritty with a capital G, and makes late '70 New York City seem like hell on earth."
"Caine admits in the DVD interviews that he did this forgettable thriller as an excuse to spend the winter in the South of France. Keaton's nowhere to be found in the interview section as if he was embarrassed to have been involved."
The Dream Team (1989)
"Hilarious and unexpectedly touching. A great vehicle for Keaton."
Another You (1991)
"The final and worst of the four Gene Wilder-Richard Pryor movies."
The Verdict (1982)
"Newman gives a brilliant performance in this powerful David and Goliath tale of a sad man's quest for redemption in the face of despair. Newman, director Lumet and the film itself all should have won an Academy Award, but sadly didn't."
"A very disappointing sequel that's just too jokey for its own good. Lacks the intense thrills of the first two."
"I honestly think this edgier prequel to Raiders of the Lost Ark does an even better job of being a non-stop rollercoaster ride than the original."
Rambo III (1988)
"Real-life events have rendered this third Rambo adventure the most dated of the series. Still, though, it remains an exciting piece of hardcore action."
Rambo: First Blood Part II (1985)
"Far from credible, but a terrific, cheer-out-loud action film nevertheless. Immediately and deservedly made Stallone's John Rambo a great individualistic screen hero to rival Eastwood's Dirty Harry."
First Blood (1982)
"The film that introduced John Rambo is a gripping survival adventure with an emotional ending that's downright moving. Jerry Goldsmith contributes an excellent musical score."
Into the Sun (2005)
"Nothing special, but competently made by Seagal's usual direct-to-DVD standards."
"So awful and incompetently made that I shut it off halfway through. The kind of straight-to-DVD Grade-Z junk that epitomizes Seagal's career in recent years."
Hudson Hawk (1991)
"Vanity projects don't get much worse than this."
Basic Instinct (1992)
"A lurid psychological thriller that's sexy, nasty and a lot of fun...And you were expecting subtlety from a film written by Joe Eszterhas and directed by Paul Verhoeven?"
Get Carter (2000)
"The original Get Carter (1971) is better, but this is quite watchable as far as modern-era remakes go."
