Diary of a Mad Housewife (1970)
An Unmarried Woman (1978)
The Junction Boys (2002)
"A riveting sports drama about the hell legendary college football coach Paul "Bear" Bryant called training camp. Tom Berenger is well cast as Bryant."
"A vastly underappreciated sequel with a fine lead performance by Roy Scheider. Director Peter Hyams took a huge gamble, and succeeds beautifully."
When a Stranger Calls (1979)
Defending Your Life (1991)
The Big Bus (1976)
Kings Row (1942)
Only You (1994)
"One of those movies that evaporates from memory the moment you leave the theater."
"This unnerving outdoor adventure still ranks as the best film of Burt Reynolds' up and down career. And you'll never forget what happens to Ned Beatty."
Sleeping with the Enemy (1991)
The Conversation (1974)
"An absorbing character study of a paranoid loner. Hackman is superb."
I Never Sang for My Father (1970)
"An authentic, highly entertaining gangster film with lots of exciting gunplay."
Triumph of the Spirit (2000)
Legends of the Fall (1994)
Death Game (1977)
"A bizarre exploitation movie with a dubbed Seymour Cassel being held hostage by two lesbians."
A Tree Grows in Brooklyn (1945)
Village of the Damned (1995)
Grace of My Heart (1996)
Grand Canyon (1991)
The Boys from Brazil (1978)
The Grey Fox (1982)
The Emerald Forest (2003)
Crazy People (1990)
"An abysmal, painfully unfunny comedy."
The Karate Kid (1984)
White of the Eye (1987)
Dolores Claiborne (1995)
Rio Bravo (1959)
Under Fire (1983)
The Razor's Edge (1984)
Dead of Winter (1986)
"Without hesitation my No. 1 favorite of all time. At once a comedy and a tragedy, hilarious and heartbreaking, few films have ever achieved such a level of excellence."
The Stepfather (1987)
Dead Heat (1988)
"A real stinker in 1988, and it hasn't improved with age."
The List of Adrian Messenger (1963)
Washington Square (1997)
Tender Mercies (1983)
The Boston Strangler (1968)
"Another fascinating true-crime drama by the underestimated Richard Fleischer. A cast against type Tony Curtis is excellent as killer Albert DeSalvo."
Enter the Dragon (1973)
The Killer Elite (1975)
"An underrated CIA thriller directed by Sam Peckinpah with lots of quirky offhand moments."
"A lurid police procedural with James Woods at his manic best."
