Switchback (1997)
The striking American West setting enlivens this efficient, rote thriller.

Most, I suspect, will walk out of the theater wondering why they had to work so hard for so little reward.

Barton Fink (1991)
A look at old Hollywood that's not just weird, but truly unsettling.

"What The Bleep Do We Know?" passes itself off as a film that's going to teach us something, and turns out to be a film that's trying to sell us something.

The Goonies (1985)
Loads of fun for kids and tweeners, or at least it was back in the '80s.

A terrific crime movie that's both quirky and gritty.

Peralta is smart to focus on the personalities in surfing, rather than just giving us a Warren Miller-style compendium of awesome surfing footage.

Double Team (1997)
Exactly as bad as you'd imagine a Van Damme-Rodman collaboration to be.

It should also be required viewing for thoughtful hawks; Greenwald's restrained approach won't insult their intelligence, and will give them plenty to chew over.

Not much action, less love. But you do get to see George Costanza as a villain.

Atmospheric character study by Lee with a bravely unlikable Denzel Washington.

John Waters at his most accessible -- which is still really odd.

A time of innocence and hope was rolling away like a train leaving the station, and "Festival Express" gives it a fond farewell.

it's truly laudable that the band let them keep filming, even after what was originally intended to be a "making of" puff piece turns into an intense psychodrama.

Rogue Trader (1999)
An intriguing true story, a magnetic lead actor, and yet the result is pancake-flat.

The Return (2004)
We're sent out of the theater unsettled and somewhat mystified by what we saw, but exhilarated to have been in the presence of a truly impressive filmmaking debut.

"Harold & Kumar Go To White Castle" may have a better grasp of modern race relations than so-called "serious" films.
