Laura (2005)

"Preminger's deft direction creates an elegant noirish tone, and he elicits near-perfect performances from everyone, even a pre-Horror Schlock Vincent Pryce."

Yojimbo (1961)

"Massive amounts of swordplay and treachery turn it into one of the most entertaining and best Kurosawa films."

Air Force One (1997)

"Air Force One is one hell of a ride. It doesn't even require you to turn off your brain - the film does it for you ... But for those 2 hours, frankly, you don't give a damn. The film is that intriguing."

Blade (1998)

"A triumph of visual brilliance, a great piece of flashy, moody pulp, and a film of mostly style and very little substance."

La Vie Rve des Anges (The Dreamlife of Angels)(The Daydreams of Angels) (1998)

"While that's not enough to make me go crazy over this one (like some people), it is enough for me to genuflect quite a bit in awe of good characters and good details done."

Life Is Beautiful (La Vita bella) (1997)

"But that's what's so extremely interesting about this film. It's deceptive and clever, and it certainly had me thinking it was something else and not such a downbeat film."

Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels (1999)

"You're more or less bound to have a blast watching it, that is, if you don't take any of it seriously."

Magnolia (1999)

"Indeed, the biggest problem is not that no one story is completely brilliant."

The Matrix (1999)

"I must admit, for all its blatant flaws (and man are there some), I left feeling shockingly satisfied, almost wanting to get right back in line and see it again."

The Sixth Sense (1999)

"But, then again, that twist is really, really overrated."

The Straight Story (1999)

"It's a relaxing film with dull edges."
