Not a terrible romantic comedy. The Amish stuff has been done before, there are some moments in here.

Terrible conclusion of the trilogy. The first two were great comic/cartoon adaptations. But back in time? What the hell is that about?

Predator (1987)
Classic Arnold, but honestly kinda slow until the final battle. Still, it's Arnold versus the alien.

Below average Benigni. Somewhat cute, but Monster is far better.

Flesh Gordon (1974)
Great cheesy sci-fi, plus gratuitous B-movie nudity. The stop motion baddie at the end rocks!

Always (1989)
Boring supernatural romance. Tedius and obvious. Wait until the following year's Ghost.

The most effective study of teamwork ever. It may be schmaltzy, but you will never be selfish again after watching this.

Moving story of a disability. Stolz and Cher are outstanding.

Nothing wrong with this sequel. Great jokes (YMCA sequence!) and tons of fun.

Housesitter (1992)
Boring comedy. Nothing happens for about 40 minutes, then a few lies are cute, but the obvious love story is unsatisfying.

Troll (1986)
Classic cheesy horror. Sonny Bono is great, and the tree stuff rules.

Weak John Woo film. Some good action scenes, but no heart. See Bullet in the Head instead.

The Thing (1982)
I never got into this. Very slow, dated special effects, and obvious exploration of the paranoia theme.

Evil Toons (1992)
Classic cheesy horror movie. Hot girls, lots of nudity, and the right tone of irreverence.

Classic disaster movie. Still holds up today as the survivors climb up a capsized boat.

Not bad erotic thriller. Tweed is great as a villainess, and Bergman makes a sexy innocent housewife.

Potentially clever, but ultimately the raw violence isn't creative and therefore is offensive.

Bad Boys (1995)

A hoot to see Matt and Renee, but none of the thrills of the original. Not scary or fun.

Species (1995)
A great monster chase movie, some cool gore, and Henstridge had a promising debut. Too bad it never went anywhere.

A solid government thriller, but often hard to follow. Lots of talking, but a satisfying climax.

"If a movie based on a ride can be this great, I can't wait for Log Flume: The Movie or Motion Simulator WITH A VENGEANCE."

I want to love this movie and there's a lot going for it. But there's just no heart. You don't care about any of the characters, even the ones you already knew.
