Posted Feb 20, 2007
2/5 Krippendorf's Tribe (1998) Steve Crum Pretty lame comedy stuff with Dreyfuss leading family misadventures. Sophomoric. EDIT
Posted Feb 20, 2007
5/5 Panic in the Streets (1950) Steve Crum Fine Elia Kazan drama with Richard Widmark. EDIT
Posted Feb 20, 2007
4/5 Beaches (1988) Steve Crum Maudlin & weepy with tender performances by Midler and Hershey. EDIT
Posted Feb 20, 2007

Posted Feb 20, 2007
5/5 Pork Chop Hill (1959) Steve Crum Gritty war, actually anti-war, movie directed by Lewis Milestone of "All Quiet on the Western Front" fame. EDIT
Posted Feb 20, 2007
B- Ghost Rider (2007) Steve Crum A classic example of style over substance, a usually negative criticism that works fine here. "Ghost Rider" is second tier Marvel, played fast and flashy. EDIT
Posted Feb 20, 2007
5/5 Time After Time (1979) Steve Crum Underrated classic mixing H.G. Wells and Jack the Ripper. Stylish, even the music. EDIT
Posted Feb 6, 2007

Posted Feb 6, 2007
4/5 The Hand That Rocks the Cradle (1992) Steve Crum Scary premise of mad sitter vs mother and child...effective. EDIT

Posted Feb 6, 2007
4/5 Freaky Friday (1976) Steve Crum Quite inspired Disney comedy with fine performances. EDIT
Posted Feb 6, 2007
D+ The Good German (2006) Steve Crum The failing ... is it takes itself dead-on seriously. Frankly, it would be easier to think of this (lifting the finale from 'Casablanca') and other sequences...as comedic. EDIT
Posted Feb 6, 2007
5/5 Paths of Glory (1957) Steve Crum Truly a Kubrick classic with strong Kirk Douglas performance. EDIT
Posted Jan 21, 2007
A- Notes on a Scandal (2006) Steve Crum In a role which would have suited Bette Davis in her Baby Jane persona, Dench's psychotic Barbara is in contrast a layered and mannered portrayal. EDIT
Posted Jan 21, 2007

Posted Dec 23, 2006

Posted Dec 23, 2006
3/5 Frogs (1972) Steve Crum The concept alone will make one croak. Production values, however, are on the cheap side. EDIT
Posted Dec 23, 2006
3/5 Superman IV: The Quest for Peace (1987) Steve Crum Disappointing to say the least, but at least it doesn't have Richard Pryor this time as its star. EDIT
Posted Dec 23, 2006

Posted Dec 23, 2006

Posted Dec 23, 2006

Posted Dec 23, 2006

Posted Dec 23, 2006
5/5 The Addams Family (1991) Steve Crum Funny feature film version of the classic TV show, and just as ghoulishly hilarious. EDIT
Posted Dec 23, 2006

Posted Dec 23, 2006
