Rating Title/Year Author
Charlie Bartlett (2007) Michael H. Price Poll and screenwriter Gustin Nash may be paying homage, here, but they also bring to the table a comparable depth of thought and characterization. EDIT

1/5 Another You (1991) Michael H. Price Pathetic attempt to recapture the vanished magic of a once-effective comedy team. EDIT
Posted Jun 3, 2005
3/5 Cry Freedom (1987) Michael H. Price Often harrowing and naturalistic but ultimately self-important in its indictment of police-state politics. EDIT
Posted Jun 3, 2005
2/5 Mississippi Burning (1988) Michael H. Price Improbable re-enactment of an investigation into long-ago outbreak of hate crimes. EDIT
Posted Jun 3, 2005
4/5 Blade Runner (1982) Michael H. Price Futurism meets film noir in the most satisfying S-F picture of its day. EDIT
Posted Jun 3, 2005
Cinderella Man (2005) Michael H. Price 'The film is ... as rich in Depression-era authenticity as such a picture gets, complete with a palpable air of social decay and personalized despondency.' EDIT
Posted Jun 3, 2005
2/5 Far and Away (1992) Michael H. Price Overblown would-be epic of the Western frontier. EDIT
Posted Jan 31, 2005
3/5 Tales of Terror (1962) Michael H. Price Among the least of the Corman-Price Poe pictures, but rendered imperishable by its hilarious/horrific wine-tasting scene between Peter Lorre and Vincent Price. EDIT
Posted Jan 31, 2005
4/5 Invaders From Mars (1953) Michael H. Price Wm. Cameron Menzies' almost-masterpiece of Cold War paranoia, bracing and impactful despite some conspicuous gaffes in the costuming-and-effects department. The underlying beauty of it all is a tacit understanding that yes, It Can, Too, Happen Here. EDIT
Posted Jan 31, 2005
3/5 Pray for Death (1985) Michael H. Price Depends upon which cut you've seen, whether the movie is any good or night. The pre-ratings original is pure ferocity, where the butchered American version comes off more like refried Jackie Chan. EDIT
Posted Jan 31, 2005
3/5 The Birds (1963) Michael H. Price More novelty than spectacle, but overall a chilling exercise in nihilistic terror. EDIT
Posted Jan 31, 2005
0/5 Orgy of the Dead (1965) Michael H. Price Ghastly, but only in the sense of ineptitude. EDIT
Posted Jan 31, 2005
Aliens of the Deep (2005) Michael H. Price ... captures not only the majesty of the brinier depths - but also the fascination therein that keeps luring Cameron back to the ocean. EDIT

3/5 César (1936) Michael H. Price Quote not available. EDIT
Posted Dec 22, 2004
1/5 White of the Eye (1988) Michael H. Price Quote not available. EDIT

2/5 Russian Doll (2001) Michael H. Price Quote not available. EDIT
Posted Dec 22, 2004
Ocean's Twelve (2004) Michael H. Price ... no improvement, unless one should care to marvel all over again at the utter lack of chemistry between [George] Clooney and Julia Roberts. EDIT
Posted Dec 22, 2004
2/5 The Thief and the Cobbler (1995) Michael H. Price Quote not available. EDIT
Posted Dec 9, 2004
3/5 Man's Best Friend (1993) Michael H. Price ... a canine Frankenstein with real bite. EDIT
Posted Dec 9, 2004
3/5 The Boy With Green Hair (1948) Michael H. Price A peculiar mixing of bigot-buster and pacifist sensibilities, rendered largely incoherent on account of Howard Hughes' attempts to transform the piece into a pro-war tract. Strange that such a safe-as-milk picture could have caused many of its talents to EDIT
Posted Dec 8, 2004
Beyond the Sea (2004) Michael H. Price ... pays tribute to the long-gone pop singer Bobby Darin in ways deeper by far than the bland hagiography that characterizes most show-world biopics. EDIT
Posted Dec 8, 2004
4/5 Dave (1993) Michael H. Price Darned near the Second Coming of Capra in Reitman's account of common decency under siege by political treacheries. EDIT
Posted Dec 8, 2004
2/5 Kindergarten Cop (1990) Michael H. Price Kid-friendly violence -- what a concept. EDIT
Posted Dec 8, 2004
Ray (2004) Michael H. Price ... so suffused with clichéd mock-eventfulness and insipid veneration that you'd think [director Taylor] Hackford might be nominating [Ray Charles] for sainthood. EDIT
Posted Dec 8, 2004
3/5 The Wild Angels (1966) Michael H. Price Essential entry in the biker-flick craze of the 1960s and '70s, a heartfelt plea for nihilism and abnormalcy in a world enslaved by Civilization. EDIT
Posted Dec 8, 2004
4/5 Foolish Wives (1922) Michael H. Price The original 'Eyes Wide Shut,' confronting the erotic obsession with frankness and confrontational humor. EDIT
Posted Dec 8, 2004
3/5 Ned Kelly (1970) Michael H. Price Quote not available. EDIT
Posted Dec 8, 2004
2/5 The Keep (1983) Michael H. Price Quote not available. EDIT

2/5 Insect Woman (1964) Michael H. Price Quote not available. EDIT
Posted Dec 8, 2004
3/5 Die, Monster, Die! (1965) Michael H. Price Lovecraft Lite, from the studio that made the world safe for Edgar Allan Poe. EDIT
Posted Dec 8, 2004
2/5 Carnosaur (1993) Michael H. Price The anti-'Jurassic Park' -- meaner and more provocative but intolerably cheap. EDIT
Posted Dec 8, 2004
3/5 Apache (1954) Michael H. Price Quote not available. EDIT
Posted Dec 8, 2004
4/5 The Petrified Forest (1936) Michael H. Price Gangster Existentialism deluxe. EDIT
Posted Dec 8, 2004
1/5 Casper's Haunted Christmas (2000) Michael H. Price There's something diseased about a cartoon series predicated on the utterly wholesome adventures of a deceased juvenile. EDIT
Posted Dec 8, 2004
4/5 The Gunfighter (1950) Michael H. Price Henry King's, and Gregory Peck's, best sagebrusher -- bar none. EDIT
Posted Dec 8, 2004
National Treasure (2004) Michael H. Price ... a mock-epic assault on the conventional wisdom of American history. EDIT
Posted Dec 8, 2004
1/5 The Invisible Maniac (1990) Michael H. Price Why bother with special effects when you can have your stunt players pretending to grapple with an unseen assailant? EDIT
Posted Dec 8, 2004
Spider-Man (2002) Michael H. Price Count on Sam Raimi ... to deliver a Spider-Man movie that recaptures the wonder of those first-generation comics. EDIT
Posted Dec 8, 2004
Alexander (2004) Michael H. Price Ponderous to a fault, a good-looking production that just sort of sits there looking self-important despite the violence and intrigues basic to the story. EDIT
