"Hilarious Woody Allen vehicle, a mockumentary with special effects ahead of its time."
Blood Diamond (2006)
"It all works well in a complex, riveting, and disturbing way. The film suffers only in pacing; it seems longer than it is."
"And it was not easy bein' green."
"Superb Renoir work should be seen by all."
The Train (1965)
"Classic Frankenheimer WWII actioner with unique plot."
The Hudsucker Proxy (1994)
"Bizarre, yet typical Coen comedy. Very dark and cartoonish."
"A document to the idealistic spirit of RFK's times. Estevez, in a trifecta as director-screenwriter-star, brilliantly succeeds in all aspects."
Time Bandits (1981)
"Over praised but imaginative sci-fi/fantasy from Monty Python minds."
"Grand Warner Brothers 1950s Doris Day musical, rich with period music."
Casino Royale (2006)
"A definite see for Bonders like myself who can accept the hard-hitting Craig, Daniel Craig."
Return of the Living Dead 3 (1993)
"More zombies, more gore, more bore."
This Is Elvis (2007)
"Fine documentary/showcase of the King."
Modern Times (1936)
"Certainly one of Chaplin's greatest...a true comedy classic."
Queen Christina (1933)
"Worth it for pairing of Garbo and Gilbert alone."
"Except for the rather contrived Tokyo link, 'Babel' is as good as 'Crash.' It is definitely worth seeing, but take a deep breath first."
Bachelor in Paradise (1961)
"Later Bob Hope vehicle suffers due to "hip" script about swinging bachelor."
The Night Walker (1964)
"Not bad creepy psychodrama from schlockster William Castle."
Our Hospitality (1923)
"Consistently hilarious, highly watchable Keaton classic."
Marie Antoinette (2006)
"The challenge of Kirsten Dunst is to portray Marie as she matures from giggly teen to frustrated wife to loving mother and queen. Dunst succeeds in a stunning performance."
The Man Who Would Be King (1975)
"Top notch Kipling tale with Huston at helm supported by great Connery and Caine performances."
The Comancheros (1961)
"Interesting, at times brutal, John Wayne western with strong cast and locale."
Al Capone (1959)
"Steiger chews scenery...and bullets...in this B-grade action programmer."
Flags of Our Fathers (2006)
"A brilliantly layered story about war's heroes and the publicity machine surrounding them...a numbing, somber movie."
The Departed (2006)
"Solid work by DiCaprio, Damon, Sheen and Baldwin...(is) upstaged by Nicholson bravado. Wahlberg, however, comes close."
"A bold Abbott & Costello venture, featuring the team in separate roles entirely, which was very inventive for its time."
Tarzan of the Apes (1918)
"Creaky, sure, but this is historical Tarzaniana with Elmo Lincoln as the screen's first (silent) vine swinger."
Portrait of Jennie (1948)
"Fine period melodrama starring Jennifer Jones and Joseph Cotten."
The Palm Beach Story (1942)
"Prime Preston Sturges, which means sublime sophisticated zaniness."
Paris When It Sizzles (1964)
"Above average Holden-Hepburn vehicle."
Gone Fishin' (1997)
"Dumb n dumber middle agers Glover & Pesci in land and sea adventures."
Open Season (2006)
"Disney never showed, say, Goofy actually defecating on camera, but 'Open Season' does just that with Eliott. And an entire scene is built around Boog's having a b.m."
"Later Bronson entry is formula hewn violence."
All The King's Men (2006)
"As for Stark's hellfire and brimstone speeches to the masses, Sean Penn's forced delivery and mock Southern dialect simply do not sell. Is Penn miscast? Yes."
The Solid Gold Cadillac (1956)
"Judy Holliday at her finest with great Paul Douglas support."
"Neat, if contrived, love story/murder mystery."
Young at Heart (1954)
"Fine Doris Day and Frank Sinatra 1950's weeper."
"Salivating gore with classic title."
"Fun cat and mouse mystery-adventure with fun special effects angle."
Love Story (1970)
"Cornball classic weeper is at least true to its book basis."
"Animated tongue-in-cheek fun."
Loving You (1957)
"Pretty good early Elvis with nice title song."
"The meaty beef of the story covers the lasting effect of TV's 'Superman,' particularly for the Baby Boomer target audience, and George Reeves' far too early death."
Comrade X (1940)
"Pre-WWII tale has great Gable and Lamarr pairing."
"Kiddie matinee fluff has fun action moments."
"True treasure of cinema, terrific on all counts."
The Illusionist (2006)
"Coming near the close of a summer full of movie superheroes and remakes, 'The Illusionist' is a film buff's treat. Here is an atmospheric, period tale of magic and murder."
The Fugitive (1993)
"Relentless action + strong Ford and Tommy Lee performances make this a classic."
Tarzan the Ape Man (1932)
"Very vine, er...fine Weismuller, his first, with sexy O'Sullivan Jane."
Ernest Saves Christmas (1988)
"Typical yet frequently goofy fun Ernest flick."
Capricorn One (1978)
"Controversial for its time, now so-so conspiracy theory plot about faked moon landing."
