8/10 No Score Yet All Creatures Great and Small (1974) This quaint little tale of a man gaining the trust of people of a small rural area is a nice diversion from the cares of the modern day. ‐ DVD Verdict
Posted Apr 4, 2001
4/5 97% Airplane! (1980) While I wouldn't put it in the top ten funniest (nor did I agree with many of the AFI choices) it is still a very funny film that only suffers from some dated jokes. ‐ DVD Verdict
Posted Apr 4, 2001

Posted Apr 4, 2001
2.0/5 97% Rope (1948) ...a story that doesn't follow through on the creepiness of its premise and comes off more like an episode of "Columbo." ‐ DVD Verdict
Posted Mar 31, 2001
2.5/5 75% The Tic Code (1998) The Tic Code is better as a moving educational experience than a story. ‐ Jacksonville Film Journal
Posted Mar 31, 2001
3.0/5 47% Immortality (2000) The film is unsettling, but rich in story and character, bordering on but not quite crossing the line into pretentiousness. ‐ Jacksonville Film Journal
Posted Mar 31, 2001
4.5/5 67% Support Your Local Sheriff! (1969) This is one of the few movies I still laugh out loud at no matter how many times I've seen it... ‐ Jacksonville Film Journal
Posted Mar 31, 2001
2.5/5 14% Red Planet (2000) One of the reasons I liked Red Planet more than Mission to Mars is that it is, in many ways, a smaller picture. ‐ DVD Verdict
Posted Mar 31, 2001
4/5 63% Me Myself I (2000) Call me sentimental (not something I'm usually accused of) but I liked this film, and liked Rachel Griffiths (Hilary and Jackie) even better. ‐ DVD Verdict
Posted Mar 21, 2001
4/5 80% The Tao of Steve (2000) What film can you remember where there is a Zen spouting fat guy using metaphysics to pick up chicks? This is a refreshing new look at the romantic comedy genre... ‐ DVD Verdict
Posted Mar 21, 2001
3.5/5 41% The 6th Day (2000) It is ironic that the film be about cloning, since it inevitably seems a clone of Total Recall, where a futuristic everyman suddenly finds out things aren't what they seem...‐ Daily-Reviews
Posted Mar 21, 2001
3/5 67% Alice's Restaurant (1969) Sometimes funny and quirky, often melancholy, the film is a pleasure at times but unsatisfying when taken as a whole. ‐ DVD Verdict
Posted Mar 14, 2001
