Bad Jackie Chan movie. It's not his style of fighting. He tries to do an anime adaptation but there's nothing for him to do.

Too all over the place to be effectively scary. I suppose it's an accurate portrait of insanity, but too hard to follow.

Hudson Hawk (1991)
A fantastic action-comedy. Great heist scenes, fun slapstick tone and musical action scenes! A true original that should be more appreciated.

Terrible fantasy. Full of depressing things like orphans and death. No amount of angels can uplift that.

Great re-interpretation of the Romero series. Scary in its hopelessness, funny in its extremity.

Ricochet (1991)
Solid thriller. Lithgow is a great villain with real power over the hero. Lots of tension.

Akira (1988)
I never understood the appeal. The animation is jumpy and flat. The story makes absolutely no sense.

Solid action movie. Davis kicks ass, Jackson is in his usual form. Could have used more family implications, but does okay.

Molly (1999)
Half-hearted Flowers for Algernon story. None of the actors seem to really believe it.

The best of the series. Apes in modern day (well, modern for then). Like all great sci-fi, has moral implications.

The Killer (1989)
Good John Woo movie. Over the top action scenes, and a heartfelt story about remorse.

Brilliant sequel! The Addams's meet the real world. Summer camp bits are a highlight. Joan Cusack is great.

Okay romantic comedy. Fox's concierge bits are the highlight, and the standard romance is fine.

Surprisingly boring and annoying '80s movie. Mistaken identity, blah. Nothing really funny happens.

Boring fight movie. Wayne Newton is okay, but nothing exciting here.

Uninvolving early Anderson movie. Why do we care about this guy's obsession with a maid? I don't get it.

Mallrats (1995)
Underrated Kevin Smith. Lots of inside jokes, background gags and smart dialogue.

Not the slightest bit funny. Annoying and obnoxious attempt at retro '30s humor.

Psycho (1960)

Pet Sematary (1989)
Great Stephen King movie. Some true scares, lots of gore, and a hint of morality. Are you responsible for the reanimated dead?

For what it is, you've got to love the gratuitous nudty and over the top violence.

Much better in the extended foreign version that shows more of the girl's hitman training. Typical French downer, but interesting relationship piece.

Big Night (1996)
A well meaning but uninvolving drama. Why do we care about the chefs? I never really figured it out.

Mediocre erotic thriller trying to capture Basic Instinct success. Tries too hard, not really sexy, and certainly not mysterious.

Fun but truly silly James Bond movie. Some good action - the firetruck, the horse race, etc. - but be ready for over the top villains.

No fun, no thrills, no scares in this half-hearted straight-to-video schlock.

Horrible sequel, even for straight-to-video fare. Why would Durant be a big villain? He was a henchman. Darkman III was a tad better, but both sequels lack the Raimi touch.

Surprising when actually analyzed. It's mostly buildup and only the last half hour is the ghost story. But it works.

Outbreak (1995)
Scary movie with realistic portrayal of disease. Hollywood happy ending, but very well done action chases, so it works.
