The Star Chamber (1983)

"The Star Chamber is an intense, thought-provoking, great-looking action-packed thriller. Sadly overlooked in theaters, this is truly an '80s buried treasure."

Southern Comfort (1981)

"An atmospheric, tough-as-nails survival tale, and arguably Walter Hill's best movie overall. Well cast with a great Ry Cooder score. Packs a definite wallop."

Alien Nation (1988)

"Caan is good, but this is just a very standard buddy cop movie disguised as a sci-fi thriller. Plays better on TV, though."

Cannonball Run II (1984)

"A lazy, sloppily made sequel that doesn't play quite as badly now as it did in 1984. Besides, it's hard to hate a movie that casts Jim Nabors as Homer Lyle."

Family Business (1989)

Arthur 2 - On the Rocks (1988)

Desperate Hours (1990)

"A crackerjack hostage drama that's well directed by Michael Cimino, gorgeously shot by cinematographer Doug Milsome, and acted with fierce intensity by Rourke and Hopkins."
