70% The Bedroom Window (1987) "The Bedroom Window" requires a pretty hefty suspension of disbelief, but then delivers enough of the goods to make it a moderately entertaining thriller that is very consciously in the Hitchcock mode. - St. Louis Post-Dispatch EDIT

82% Star Wars: Episode VI - Return of the Jedi (1983) The characters and dialogue get lost somewhere between the bug-eyed monsters and the exploding spaceships, but it is all so much fun it probably really does not matter a whole lot. - St. Louis Post-Dispatch EDIT

A- 86% Gonzo: The Life and Work of Hunter S. Thompson (2008) But Gibney wisely tells much of the story in Thompson's own words, narrated by actor Johnny Depp, who played the writer in the movie version of "Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas." - St. Louis Post-Dispatch EDIT

C+ 41% The Longshots (2008) It is unabashedly sentimental and, at times sincerely touching, mainly when Ice Cube and Palmer are alone together on the screen. - St. Louis Post-Dispatch EDIT

B 81% Chicago 10 (2008) Makes skillful use of documentary footage to relate what happened in the streets of Chicago, culminating in what was routinely described at the time as 'a police riot.' - St. Louis Post-Dispatch EDIT

93% No Country for Old Men (2007) No Country for Old Men looks into the unfathomable depths of evil and poses existential questions about human destiny. Meanwhile, it takes your breath away. - St. Louis Post-Dispatch EDIT

B 37% The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift (2006) This is more like it. - St. Louis Post-Dispatch EDIT

92% Planes, Trains and Automobiles (1987) As recent variations of an age-old movie genre go, it is fairly good, but somehow you hope for more from Steve Martin and John Candy. - St. Louis Post-Dispatch EDIT

2/4 21% Honey (2003) It's hard to dislike a movie as inoffensive as this one -- even the crack dealers don't seem very threatening. - St. Louis Post-Dispatch EDIT
