Dead Ringers (1988)
One of Cronenberg's creepiest. And Irons is freaking amazing.

Dave (1993)
A naive political nightmare masquerading as a likable feel-good flick. But it's okay, I can deal.

Though the ending's pretty obvious, even for those who haven't read the book, you can't deny the power of this cast.

Sexy? Yes. As sexy as it thinks itself to be? Sadly, no.

What can I say? I found the bravura and chest-thumping intriguing. I don't even feel guilty saying that.

A very funny movie. I had almost given up hope on Edwards by this point.

Much better than Schumachers' Bat-flicks. But then again, so is stabbing yourself with a fork.

Wants to be a child's fantasy writ large. Stumbles and breaks its nose on the stairwell instead.

The Abyss (1989)
For God's sake, make sure you have the director's cut. The theatrical cut was an abomination.

Aladdin (1992)

You know, the more distance I get from this, the more I think: man, what a dark, depressing film. I think when it came out I was just that desperate for a new Indy flick.

How funny can a movie be about the world's first kosher pig farmer? Funnier than you'd expect.
