4/5 16 Blocks (2006) Michael Clawson Rock music puts emphasis on the beat, jazz puts emphasis off the beat. 16 Blocks is jazz music: It's an action film, but its high points can be found in the punctuation, in the quiet moments between chases or shootouts. EDIT

Posted Feb 6, 2006
3/5 The Presidio (1988) Michael Clawson Good thriller, but it suffers from '80s virus called the Mopes - it stutters on long, arduous sessions of depression while going absolutely nowhere. EDIT
Posted Aug 1, 2002
2/5 Big Top Pee-wee (1988) Michael Clawson Fun for children, embarrassing for adults, especially now knowing Pee-Wee's illegal indulgences. EDIT
Posted Aug 1, 2002
0/5 Beethoven's 4th (2001) Michael Clawson Sad tale of floundering careers. Poor Judge Reinhold - he must hate himself. EDIT
Posted Aug 1, 2002
3/5 Gia (1998) Michael Clawson Teasing, but hard-to-watch, biography of a famed model struck down by '80s extravagance. NOTE: Angelina Jolie gets naked ... a lot. Hooray! EDIT
Posted Aug 1, 2002
1/5 Tom and Huck (1995) Michael Clawson Long, tirelessly epic tale of TeenBeat cover boys. Little girls scream, critics fall asleep. EDIT
Posted Aug 1, 2002
3/5 Men at Work (1990) Michael Clawson At times fun, at others too smart for it's own good. It's big flaw: the long, drawn-out ending. EDIT
Posted Aug 1, 2002
3/5 Fat Man and Little Boy (1989) Michael Clawson Intersting, insightful histo-drama with Newman doing his job above and beyond what is called for. EDIT
Posted Aug 1, 2002
2/5 Mighty Joe Young (1998) Michael Clawson King Kong has never looked so ... drowsy. Sleepy, boring tale of kind-hearted gorilla gets old real quick, but with Charlize Theron though, Disney proves men can have dirty thoughts while their children are entertained. Hooray Charlize! EDIT

3/5 Harry and the Hendersons (1987) Michael Clawson Fun, one-of-a-kind, and sometimes scary, adventure/comedy with the always-delightful, John Lithgow. EDIT
Posted Aug 1, 2002
4/5 Signs (2002) Michael Clawson Signs is deliberate and shocking from its sweeping exterior to its raw, emotional interior. Orson Welles would be proud. EDIT
Posted Aug 1, 2002

Posted Jul 23, 2002
