"Von Sydow was better in Strange Brew, but still rather sweet."

Grizzly Falls (1999)
"Brown is essentially playing a low-rent Crocodile Dundee here, but it's hard to imagine a kid who wouldn't like to have this guy as their father"
"The classic war epic-meets-buddy-movie from which most others since have been derived."

The Machinist (2004)
"The problem with relying on a second viewing is that, the first time out, it's really tough to identify with Reznik in any way."
