This should be a hit-and-miss effort, but it's mostly hits.

It's goofy, cornball charm sure wears a lot better than the last two "serious" Batman flicks.

9 to 5 (1980)
So-so office revenge comedy that seems way overpraised in retrospect.

I've never understood what people thought was so great about this middling sports comedy.

3.5/4
A shattering piece of filmmaking that successfully ties the suspense of a real-time crime with the tragedy of a larger social ill. It will make you feel something.

For a tragedy that carries a strong emotional kick, it's wickedly fun.

It's the shots, not the dialogue or even the fine acting, that will stay with you after you leave the theater.

Never has the Manhattan club scene ever looked so tedious; this film makes a powerful argument for staying home and renting a movie.

The Warriors (1979)
A campy treat for anyone who wants to "come out and play-ay!"

Chinatown (1974)
A modern classic that stays true to private eye-movie conventions while digging way, way, deep underneath them.

"Win a Date With Tad Hamilton!" is like one of those first dates that end with a handshake rather than a kiss.

Staggeringly inept monster movie; the MST3k version is a must-see.

(Lopez's) teaching is simply one of the purest expressions of love I've ever seen on film.

The Relic (1997)
Gory as heck, but still well-crafted monster movie fun.

Judge and Hertzfeldt don't seem to have any criteria in mind beyond selecting stuff they like.

Key Largo (1948)
One of Bogart's half-dozen best, a tense and atmospheric classic.

Roxanne (1987)
Terrific and charming "Cyrano" update, with one of Martin's best performances and his best screenplay.

The Rescuers (1977)

A great, twisty noir that plants a Jim Thompson plot in the American Southwest.

KM.0 (2001)
"Km. 0" could be called "Sex Actually."

The finest of three classic films, "Red" is unforgettable.

Its everything-but-the-kitchen-sink approach to liberal politics is its undoing.

Moore should have bowed out after the superb "Octopussy", but this is still a pretty good time at the movies.

The flat dialogue and cardboard characters often undercut any social points that Gorlin seems on the verge of scoring.

Manhattan (1979)
One of Allen's three or four best films, it's a tender, wistful romantic comedy that uses NYC to breathtaking effect.

While the musical numbers that season "Bollywood" are brimming with color and enthusiasm, they're not exactly overflowing with technical competence.

Brazil (1985)
It has visual style and imagination to burn, but it's the ideas behind it that make it a modern classic..

The Love Bug (1969)
I'm a hopeless sucker for live-action '60s Disney, and this one is a classic.

On the plus side, just about every scene in the film features some really eye-catching print wallpaper. I think it's important to end a review on a positive note, don't you?

So overstuffed with good things and wrapped in such a cheerful package that it's hard to resist.
