75% Caddyshack (1980) To attempt a critical evaluation of Orion's new Caddyshack is a little like describing the esthetic qualities of an outhouse.‐ Hollywood Reporter

97% Annie Hall (1977) Woody Allen fans will buy it 100%. Never before has the diminutive comedian been so urbane, so open - so funny. And with lovely Diane Keaton as consort, it becomes well-nigh irresistible (especially if you find Keaton as well-nigh irresistible as I do).‐ Hollywood Reporter

99% The Godfather (1972) This is a curious film. One comes to understand, even to condone, the activities of the Godfather and his clan.‐ Hollywood Reporter

88% Kramer vs. Kramer (1979) What Benton achieved with his screenplay he intensified with his direction. Each performance is a minor miracle of perfection - not only Hoffman's and Streep's, which dominate the picture, but each of the supporting roles as well.‐ Hollywood Reporter

96% Close Encounters of the Third Kind (1977) To get to the bottom line with minimum delay, Close Encounters of the Third Kind is a terrific movie, with every possibility of equaling the box office popularity of Star Wars.‐ Hollywood Reporter

91% Network (1976) Whatever its flaws, Network is a picture that can stand on its own. And does.‐ Hollywood Reporter

93% Rocky (1976) In addition to a heart-warming script, Stallone has created on the screen a character of enormous appeal and charm - half-articulate but funny, gruff but good-hearted.‐ Hollywood Reporter

80% Star Wars: Episode VI - Return of the Jedi (1983) Unfortunately, it conveys the sense that the machinery has already started to wear down, and the inventiveness to wear thin.‐ Hollywood Reporter

93% All the President's Men (1976) While there's an undoubted fascination in all this, after a couple of hours it begins to wear thin.‐ Hollywood Reporter

94% Nashville (1975) Certainly, for the American cinema, it is the most epochal event since Orson Welles' Citizen Kane.‐ Hollywood Reporter

97% Jaws (1975) Perhaps the most perfectly constructed horror story in our time.‐ Hollywood Reporter

94% Star Wars: Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back (1980) The Empire may not top Star Wars, but it certainly makes one look forward to whatever new surprises George Lucas and his band of cinematic wizards can conjure up for us.‐ Hollywood Reporter

97% Ghostbusters (1984 Original) (1984) The plotting may be primitive, but it's all carried off with far more style and finesse than one might expect from the creators of Animal House and Meatballs.‐ Hollywood Reporter

75% Grease (1978) What makes it work is its youthful vitality, the tremendous energy and imagination expended on its virtually wall-to-wall song and dance number.‐ Hollywood Reporter

70% The Goonies (1985) The action at the center of Chris Columbus' script occasionally falters and generally feels manufactured, but the kids go about their chores as if convinced that all their make-believe is true.‐ Hollywood Reporter

31% Battlestar Galactica (1978) Richard A. Colla directed, and Robert L. Kimble led the team of editors faced with the impossible task of carving a masterpiece out of a monstrosity. What they got is a monumental turkey - and just in time for Thanksgiving.‐ Hollywood Reporter
