The Brandon Teena Story (1998)
"An enjoyably goofy ganster comedy."
A Face in the Crowd (1957)

U2: Rattle and Hum (1988)
"Nicely shot if not terribly innovative concert film."
Just Cause (1995)

"Douglas is wonderfully slimy as a scheming reporter in one of Wilder's most accomplished films."

The Chronicles of Riddick (2004)
The Stepford Wives (2004)
"One of the more charming entries in the Disney canon. Williams is a riot as the genie."
