Zombi 2 (1980)
A gore bore. "Barf bags" were handed out to people paying to see this in theaters. No-Doze would have been more appropriate.

Mildly amusing early on when it sticks to puns and one-liners, but falls apart quickly as it degenerates into a series of dumb comic action sequences. Easier to sit through when I was 8.

Framed (1975)
The final film of unsung B-movie specialist Phil Karlson is a tough-as-nails crime drama that might have attained a better reputation by now if it had the guts to end a few minutes earlier on a bleaker note. Still, a must for fans of gritty '70s fare.

When King Burt Reynolds says, 'What kind of joke do the gods play on me?,' we feel the pain of a downslide that took him from No. 1 box-office star to appearing in an Uwe Boll schlockfest.

Speed Zone (1989)
The third Cannonball Run film is a mind-numbingly abysmal, cheapo Canadian production starring John Candy and a bunch of C and D listers. Might make a good answer to a trivia question, but this little-known sequel is truly pathetic.

A terrible Canadian movie about the making of a terrible Canadian movie.

A quirky, multi-character collage that skillfully keeps you off balance, not knowing where it's headed.

If not quite one of the worst sequels ever made, it's near the top of the list of all-time most disappointing sequels. Writer-director Stallone stupidly attempts to turn Tony Manero into a dancing Rocky.

A tedious Blade rip-off. No suspense or scares, but lots of boredom.

Soldier Blue (1970)
A clumsy, anachronistic Western which casts Candice Bergen as a shrill female lead who's a lot more 1970 than 1864. Unconvincing.

Off-beat '70s drive-in fare about a kidnapping gone awry. Exhibits a twisted sense of humor that put it years ahead of its time. Tarantino obviously got a few ideas from this one.

A somnolent international crime thriller. Completely run-of-the-mill and executed with zero energy.

A bad-luck project that saw director Mark Robson and co-star Robert Shaw die during production in 1978. The final result is a choppy all-star thriller that's obviously a truncated 88-minute salvage job.

Endless Love (1981)
A potentially interesting story of obsessive teenage love is sabotaged by some laughably absurd overplotting.

Psycho (1998)
Vaughn's Norman Bates is much inferior because he lacks the natural neurosis of Anthony Perkins.

Killer Image (1992)
An implausible B thriller made watchable by Michael Ironside's portrayal of another clenched-jawed psycho.

The revelation of the Man in Black and the film's attempt to explain the origin of Michael Myers were the only points of interest here.

Impulse (1974)
A painfully atrocious would-be thriller with some of the worst directing and acting you're ever likely to see. William Shatner is amazingly bad, and the little blonde girl is even worse. Truly hideous.

Bottom-of-the-barrel exploitation trash. Dreadful on every level.

Lance Henriksen makes a great antihero in this surprisingly good pastiche of classical Western elements. Makes up for in sincerity what it lacks in originality.

Stone Cold (1991)
Head villain Lance Henriksen steals the show in this very ordinary actioner about a tough cop (Brian Bosworth) infiltrating a gang of bikers. Offers some good stunt work, but tells us little about the outlaw biker culture it depicts.

A far-fetched but thrilling World War II adventure. Watch it as part of a double feature with John Frankenheimer's The Train.

A depressingly standard tough-lawman-chases-nasty-drug-dealers programmer. Plays like a pilot for a bad TV series.

A familiar, unconvincing and plot-heavy crime drama full of too many contrivances and coincidences. Redeemed somewhat by Charles Durning's bulldog performance as a two-faced mob boss.

A lame Fargo wannabe. Despite Robin Williams and a decent supporting cast, this was barely released to theaters, and it's easy to see why.

Once Around (1990)
A wonderfully charming, true-to-life comedy-drama that was one of 1991's best and most overlooked films.

An absolutely delightful and tender romantic comedy. Succeeds so well because of the great, very real performances by the two leads and writer Terrence McNally's smart, often hilarious dialogue.

Works well as a history lesson, and the recreation of the 12/7/41 attack is spectacular, but the film is much less effective on a character level.

Black Sunday (1977)
A film that was 25 years ahead of its time, John Frankenheimer's Black Sunday is an intelligently written, complex and constantly intense thriller that builds to an extremely exciting climax.

Fay Grim (2007)
A stunningly abysmal sequel to 1998's very interesting Henry Fool. Even the appealing Posey can do little to redeem this totally misguided, convoluted disaster.

A very mild, very dull mystery with supernatural undertones that's mostly a long, slow buildup for an unsatisfying conclusion of little sense.
