Jumanji (1995)
Unsatisfied with just being cute, this sucker wound up being both fun and clever.

The pinnacle of 80s cinematic teenage angst. Frighteningly, it hasn't aged much.

Ooooo, one large slice of delicious apocalyptic cheese, please.

Superman II (1981)
Three Kryptonian villains and Superman kicking the snot out of each other and tearing up the town? Who can't love this?

Hellraiser (1987)
Cinematic Barker at its most clever and disturbed.

Even the most cynical of cretins--like myself--can't help but be charmed by this musical classic.

Olin is one of the most vile female protagonists to ever walk out on a screen. Made little chinchillas run up and down my spine.

Brilliantly acted and written, it's one of the best ensemble pieces of its particular decade.

Wolf (1994)
'Jack Nicholson as a lycanthrope' is an interesting pitch, and it makes for a decent enough film.

The Hitcher (1986)
It's like a sadistic version of Duel, instead of a semi you get Hauer in all his creepy manic splendor.

The Thing (1982)
Films like this make me hope against hope that, some day...one day...the real John Carpenter will return.

Sure it might be barely plotless fluff, but it's well executed barely plotless fluff, and doesn't try to pretend to be anything else.

It's Jackie Chan delivering tasty kung fu smackdown. As long as that's what you go in looking for, you won't be disappointed.

Daredevil (2003)

1/5
I'm sure it looked good on paper. That and Kilmer's frighteningly apt mimicry of Brando's voice are about the only positive things I can say.

Mosquitos that can puncture a man's entire head. How can you go wrong with that, I ask you.

Probably the most fun Zemeckis has given the world. It's okay, I'm paying him a compliment.

An extremely amusing film from back when Murphy was still funny; it's been unfortunately mostly forgotten these days.

Rawhead Rex (1987)
I saw this when it first hit video, many moons ago. And you know what? I'm still giggling.

Watch two grandmasters of comic timing snipe at each other for the length of a feature? Sure, where do I sign up?

White Zombie (1932)
It's Bela. It's a classic. Unfortunately, it's also a dreadful little flick.

Mindless, harmless popcorn flick. Emphasis on the mindless.

Hamlet (1990)
Gibson's Hamlet is more than respectable, but Helena Bonham Carter's the best Ophelia I've ever seen.
