Unfunny spoof. Lacks bite, timing and good ideas.

Funny romantic comedy, lots of Elvis jokes, and a lighthearted Nicholas Cage.

In the tradition of Mighty Ducks, here's another great Rocky story from Disney.

Good comedy romance. Murphy is sincere and the cameos from now-celebrities like Samuel L. Jackson are fun.

Not a highlight of the series. Loses the fun feel of incompetent cops in a complicated citizen plot.

Disappointing drama. Some moving moments while fly fishing, but a senseless tear-jerker end just seems desperate.

Below average thriller. Not much action, not much character between Willis and the boy, but Baldwin is a good villain.

The Hitcher (1986)
Effective '80s horror movie. A relentless villain and some horrific scenes.

Nekromantik (1987)
Interesting idea for a horror film, but ugly and unpleasant.

Mediocre Steven King adaptation. Interesting horror idea in light of society's obsession with dieting, but really just another horror movie.

Jury Duty (1995)
Disappointing, even for a Pauly Shore comedy. Not much satire, and the ending with the evil juror just makes no sense.

Blind Fury (1990)

Dr. Giggles (1992)
Good potential with the crazy doctor, but it turns into just another slasher movie. The cop breaking up the party is the best scene.

Palmetto (1997)
Decent twisty-turny thriller, but a lot of the twists don't make sense. Try to decipher it if you can.

Not as bad as I was led to believe. Some interesting ideas about the aftermath. But alas, still not a compelling story.

Suprisingly funny lighthearted comedy dealing with divorce. Lackluster conclusion, but good "feel good" tone.

Another great Vacation movie. Typical dumb tourist antics in Eurpoe, and it still works.

No laughs in this one at all. Who decided to write a movie about a club designer? Boring concept, no chemistry.

Ghost (1990)
A great supernatural thriller and romance. Clever ghost effects, and a believable story about mourning and the afterlife.

Horrible "romantic comedy." Great message for the ladies: Forgive your cheating husband because that's the best you can do.

Jack Frost (1996)
Despite the snowman rape scene, this is not a fun B-movie. Nothing clever about it.

The Matrix Reloaded is not the end all be all of movies. Nothing is. But it's great. It out-Matrixes the original Matrix with its fight scenes, car chase and philosophical insight.

Sad sequel to a surprisingly clever dark comedy. The voodoo curse is pointless, and all the funny death moments were used up in teh first one.

Promising Hong Kong spoof, but it fizzles out halfway through. Some funny redundant gadgets, and John Woo spoofage, but never goes anywhere.

Hulk (2003)
The Hulk stuff looks great. The CGI character is expressive, sympathetic and there's just a great visceral thrill to all the 'Hulk Smash' scenes. Most of the film has a good heart, with undertones of rage and repression. But, it's a slow start.

The perfect satirical horror. Brilliant observations about the genre, the media and the goth scene. Hilarious, and you actually care about the characters.

The League of Extraordinary Gentleman is the most literate movie of the summer. How many summer movies reference Moby Dick and Around the World in 80 Days? Kids won't know the literature of Melville and Verne, but it sets the tone for

Home Alone (1990)
Overrated. The burglar finale is great, but too much nonsense schmaltz. He was too forgiving of an abusive family. Sequel is a bit darker and a tad better.

No Contest (1994)
Disapointing Die Hard rip-off. Even forgiving the B-movie quality, there's nothing clever here. Dice is a good bad guy though. Tweed disappoints.
