Posted Jan 27, 2004

Posted Dec 19, 2003
2/5 Star Trek V: The Final Frontier (1989) Blake Davis The only thing worse than letting William Shatner act in a movie is letting William Shatner direct one. EDIT
Posted Dec 19, 2003

Posted Dec 15, 2003
4/5 Ghostbusters II (1989) Blake Davis A loose, assured sequel that has the breezy ambition of simply being fun and likable. And it is. EDIT
Posted Dec 15, 2003
Bad Santa (2003) Blake Davis One of the most wonderful pieces of anarchy to come out of Hollywood in years; it has the jittery feel of a movie that's ahead of it's time. EDIT
Posted Dec 15, 2003
Alien (1979) Blake Davis A beautiful, quiet, and amazingly poetic film visually that lets its shots linger and build a mood of genuine isolation and dread. EDIT
Posted Nov 4, 2003

Posted Nov 4, 2003
4/5 The Serpent and the Rainbow (1988) Blake Davis A scary, hallucinogenic and underrated horror movie, and one of Wes Craven's best. EDIT
Posted Nov 4, 2003
5/5 Dazed and Confused (1993) Blake Davis Maybe the best movie ever made about American teenagers, casual and funny in a totally unique way. EDIT
Posted Nov 4, 2003
The Texas Chainsaw Massacre (2003) Blake Davis Given the opportunity to work with such classic material, all the director manages to do with it is to turn the whole movie into a shallow calling card for his visual skills. EDIT
Posted Nov 4, 2003
4/5 The Breakfast Club (1985) Blake Davis A teen classic and one of the holy five John Hughes films from the 80's. EDIT
Posted Oct 7, 2003

Posted Oct 7, 2003
Anything Else (2003) Blake Davis The whole movie feels like a warm-up, a dusting off of cobwebs, like Woody Allen has just woken from a long nap and is finally ready to get back to work. EDIT
Posted Oct 7, 2003
4/5 Stormy Monday (1988) Blake Davis A strong exercise in mood early in Mike Figgis's career. EDIT
Posted Oct 7, 2003
Thirteen (2003) Blake Davis It's a two-hour gut-wrench that just keeps tightening, and ends in a place that doesn't make you feel much better, like watching an after-school special gone horribly wrong. EDIT
Posted Oct 7, 2003
3/5 The Blob (1988) Blake Davis A fun, cheesy remake from writer Frank Darabont, who gets the tone just right. EDIT
Posted Sep 12, 2003

Posted Sep 12, 2003
Freddy vs. Jason (2003) Blake Davis Played for laughs, the two horror icons have been castrated. No longer scary, they're like a Las Vegas lounge act, sandwiched somewhere between Celine Dion and Debbie Reynolds on the strip. EDIT
Posted Sep 12, 2003
3/5 Black Widow (1987) Blake Davis A smart, twisty, stylish thriller with a good Debra Winger performance. EDIT
Posted Sep 12, 2003
3/5 Wes Craven's New Nightmare (1994) Blake Davis A smart self-referential horror movie that plays the references for scares, not laughs. EDIT
Posted Sep 12, 2003
Once Upon a Time in Mexico (2003) Blake Davis It's a great, swirling action movie, but it's so heavy on plot twists and characters that the whole thing feels like a delirious jumble. EDIT
Posted Sep 12, 2003

Posted Jul 14, 2003
3/5 A Nightmare on Elm Street 4: The Dream Master (1988) Blake Davis A good sequel in the series directed by trash auteur Renny Harlin with just the right flair. EDIT
Posted Jul 14, 2003

Posted Jul 14, 2003
Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines (2003) Blake Davis An efficient, solid action picture, but one that causes the Terminator series to lose a little of it's luster. James Cameron's ideas are sorely missed. EDIT
