The Bellboy (1960)
"For my meager money, Jerry Lewis' best & one of funniest all-time comedies."
Phantom of the Opera (1943)
"Fine version of classic horror/love story/tragedy...minus music, of course."
"Produced by Mark Ciardi ['The Rookie,' 'Miracles'], the fact-based 'Invincible' goes for touchdown. It is a formula movie that works."
"Frequently funny take on Dickens' "A Christmas Carol" with Murray learning a lesson."
Go West (1925)
"One of Buster's best, which means one of cinema comedy's best."
The Fighting Seabees (1944)
"WWII flag waving + Duke Wayne = can't miss action."
Eyes of Laura Mars (1978)
"Still pretty creepy murder mystery starring Dunaway and Tommy Lee."
"Good but far from great sequel to Bogdanovich's "Last Picture Show.""
Alien Nation (1988)
"Fascinating and somewhat timely themed sci-fi flick, a minor classic."
"The whole of the movie is rough edged cruel. Main characters, including Ricky, are ignoble back stabbers."
Return from Witch Mountain (1978)
"Top cast in above average sequel to Disney supernatural flick."
World Trade Center (2006)
"Top praise should go to Stone. After the overblown failure 'Alexander,' he made a wise decision to shoot an up close and personal script. Less proves definitely more."
The Man Who Knew Too Much (1956)
"One of Hitch's best from his '50s period...and his only one with a hit song ("Que Sera")."
The Subject Was Roses (1968)
"Fine drama featuring Patricia Neal and Jack Albertson, based on stage play."
Beach Blanket Bingo (1965)
"Silly, but so campy fluff with Annette and Frankie."
"Warner Brothers spectacle of highest order with Muni never better."
My Fair Lady (1964)
"Superb rendering of stage musical with stellar cast and production."
The Secret of Santa Vittoria (1969)
"Quinn, as always, is the highlight in this fine Stanley Kramer production."
Medicine Man (1992)
"Interesting, intriguing blend of character study and action with Sean Connery."
The Texas Chainsaw Massacre (1974)
"Cultish trash set new low standards for brutality."
Assault on Precinct 13 (1976)
"Claustrophobic classic by Carpenter still grabs."
"Slick comedy whodunit with George Segal and Jacqueline Bisset."
The Ant Bully (2006)
"So well animated, voiced, written, and directed, it defines itself as one of the best animated flicks this summer, rightfully standing beside 'Monster House' and 'Cars.'"
The World's Greatest Athlete (1973)
"Pedestrian Disney has its family film humor moments."
The Greatest Show on Earth (1952)
"Fun DeMille full of spectacle and flashy stars...and a great train wreck."
Lady in the Water (2006)
"All 'Lady in the Water' lacks is a narrator ending the tale with 'and they lived happily ever after.' This is a Shyamalan flick?"
"Pretty contrived sci-fi with leathery Sean Connery."
The Mating Game (1959)
"Very dated (social mores) romantic comedy with Tony Randall paired with Debbie Reynolds."
The Laughing Policeman (1973)
"Good Walter Matthau vehicle co-starring Bruce Dern."
A Scanner Darkly (2006)
"The script does not wear so well, dragging along for stretches. Reeves, in his usual sullen delivery way, does not help take up the slack."
The Adventures of Mark Twain (1944)
"Loving, beautifully photographed tribute to Twain with stellar March performance."
Revolt of the Zombies (1936)
"Revolting is right."
The Young Philadelphians (1959)
"Smart drama featuring Paul Newman in early role."
""Bad News Bears" cloned for girls soccer with sometimes funny Dangerfield bits."
"Poor A & C outing with low budget showing everywhere."
"Intense, moving Cassavetes classic."
"Segal-Jackson comedy doesn't wear well with age, but has moments."
"Superb production with memorable Sinise performance in title role."
"The pace is grueling...as the many sword fighting sequences clang on and on. Even battling gigantic tentacles becomes a yawner after the 45th pirate is squeezed."
The Member of the Wedding (1952)
"Wonderful, moving play-based film featuring great Ethel Waters performance."
"Enough already! For the diabetic inclined only."
"Schlock most famous due to Roger Ebert's screenplay."
Superman Returns (2006)
"Our caped hero does not turn the world backwards to relive time, but much of director Bryan Singer's film is lifted from the 1978 Richard Donner version."
"Michael never thinks big like changing mankind for the good. He would rather click-freeze a guy and pull down his pants to embarrass him. THAT's a Sandler laugh."
Flash Gordon (1980)
"Glossy sci-fi fun, although ultimately pretty empty."
City Lights (1931)
"Absolutely delightful, hilarious, heart breaking Chaplin classic."
Robinson Crusoe on Mars (1964)
"Better than expected, and it features brief appearance by the future Batman."
"Disturbing, well acted Woody Allen drama."
The Fixer (1968)
"Great Alan Bates starrer directed by Frankenheimer."
The Professionals (1966)
"Top notch western adventure laden with macho stars Lancaster, Marvin and Palance."
