Patton (1970)
Superb telling of WWII General George Patton, brilliantly played by George C. Scott.

B+
Skulls and cliffhanging aside, 'Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull' is a nostalgic reunion for fans. Harrison Ford, with his quirky (and often funny) delivery...has copyrighted this great, heroic character as his alone.

Erratic failure of comedy featuring Jodie Foster, Beau Bridges.

A-
Iron Man (2008)
Robert Downey Jr. nails Iron Man. More apropros, change nails to welds. For it is Downey who most significantly raises the quality bar of 'Iron Man' to the classic level of fellow comic book heroes Superman, Batman and Spider-Man. Welcome, new franchise.

88 Minutes (2008)
Pacino's frenzy, some nice Seattle location scenery, and an over-the-top ending right out of 'Batman' do not a fine crime film make.

Unnecessary sequel to now politically incorrect comedy of alcoholism. Great cast, however.

A-
Leatherheads (2008)
It is about as close as we will ever get to, say, Cary Grant and Rosalind Russell--in rapid fire wordplay. And the words, by Brantley and Reilly, connect fast and witty.

Perhaps the best Tarzan film of them all, with Weismjuller and O'Sullivan in grand jungle form.

Pacing is brisk, the laughs frequent. With an ending corny and Capra-esque, 'Run, Fat Boy, Run' charms right to the finish line.

Is this Ernest 17 or 18? Matters not, since they are all Jim Varney the same.

Cat Ballou (1965)

Unfortunately this 30+ year old comedy-murder mystery has dated, but Wilder and Pryor are great in first pairing.
