Medicine Man (1992)
Inoffensive jungle flick. Connery's wicked hair weave took home Best Supporting Actor.

Waterworld (1995)
It's 'Max Max on Water.' Straight up. Once you get over that, it's not unenjoyable.

Judge Dredd (1995)
If there was ever a film that made you want to pretend you were Ray Milland in the last reel of 'X', this was it.

For a kid, it's great. Kids can't normally smell extremely episodic, fractured narratives.

Not quite sure why this one tanked as badly as it did; I thought it was gorgeously realized, myself.

Now you've done it; high concept disaster movies, especially those of Irwin Allen, are one of the chinks in my critical armor. Just can't watch them enough.

Commando (1985)
Before this, I didn't know you could cram that many groan-causing one-liners into a movie. Thus, began the death of my innocence.

Provides good info on its subject matter, but does so without emotional engaging its audience.

Sure, looking back now it seems cheeseball, but it was the 80s. We didn't know any better.

The epitome of 80s comedies and source of many a pop culture tagline.

Hoffman and Voight are amazing. The film, too, is amazing. It's all terribly weird--but amazing.

Overboard (1987)
Cute and inoffensive. Sweet but not so much that you hate yourself for liking it. This is a good thing.

DeNiro can play a complete wimp and Murray can play a heavy--who knew?

If only Blatty would be given the director's chair more often, we would have a lot more truly terrifying movies to choose from.

Psycho (1960)
It's marvelous. Pioneered so many bits of the genre that it's lost without the proper context.

Hardware (1990)
Surprisingly capable sci-fi/monster thriller. And the soundtrack is so cool it can kill from fifty yards away.
