Giant (1956)
Old-fashioned life-of-a-family pic that's like nothing you'll see today -- and I mean that in the best way possible.

Sweet Jane (1998)
Smartly uses a minimalist, edgy, Wim Wenders-style score to communicate the emptiness of a life doomed to be cut short.

4/5
Aktan Abdikalikov's film recalls more than anything else some of the most compelling rock videos of the early '90s, like Deep Forest's "Sweet Lullaby" with a heavy dose of Metallica's "Unforgiven" video thrown in.

[T]he characters in the book are teenagers...When acted out by performers in their mid-thirties, on the other hand, such behavior makes less sense

Nelson's charisma keeps the film watchable, but there are few laughs or surprises.

A cleverly disguised monster movie.

Welcome to the year's big mystery movie, the mystery being: Who the hell greenlights insipid Irwin Allen wannabes?

5/5
The classic Walken role, by which all subsequent ones are measured. Possibly the best Stephen King adaptation too.

Clerks (1994)
Smith's dialogue sounded groundbreakingly realistic at the time -- wore out its welcome eventually, but the initial blast was gleeful and significant.

This movie bites. Ben Stiller should stick to acting.

5/5
Few films understand the fantasies of the would-be outsider-turned-icon quite as well, while remaining in a realistic setting.

A Christmas classic. Jim Varney is sorely missed in my heart.

Brainscan (1994)
Cops out at the end, but fun until then.

Somewhat dated, and not quite up to the source material, but still some good retro fun.

The Sting (1973)

Goldfinger (1964)
Most think it's the best Bond. I favor some of the more recent ones, but this is classic stuff.

Minority opinion here, I know, but I found the sex scenes hot and March's performance truly impressive.

Dr. No (1962)
Would be perfect if not for that damned annoying "Mango Tree" song.

Bloodsport (1988)
Proudly plotless in a way that other low-budget actioners ought to emulate more often.

The film plays like an old episode of Alfred Hitchcock Presents, with a resolution that's truly unpredictable.

Shade (2003)
...the plot becomes almost irrelevant -- these guys are just fun to watch, and only Newton seems to be on a vain superstar trip.

Comic divinity.

John Hughes at the peak of his powers, with two masterful comedians at theirs.

Better than people give it credit for, especially if the viewer fully appreciates the gay subtext.

Amusing mock-doc that sends up the self-delusions low-budget directors often force themsleves to labor under.

How hard would it be to come up with a story at least as good as that of the original Nintendo game? Impossible, apparently.

The Chase (1994)
Goofball fun, and Swanson's rarely been hotter.

Impressive ambitions that fail at every turn. Ewan's really quite uncharacteristically dreadful.

CB4 (1993)
One of the first movies to parody gangsta rap, it does so knowingly and affectionately.

Given all the talent involved, this should have been much more compelling.

Fortress (1993)
The perfect confluence of prison movie, R-rated sci-fi, Stuart Gordon, and Christopher Lambert. I couldn't ask for much more.

4/5
Longer than the movie whose construction it documents, this is nonetheless an entertaining (if sprawling) look behind the scenes.

Serves very little purpose beyond reminding us that there are black people in the world, and they have love lives as well as decent jobs.

Catch-22 (1970)
Starts out pretty funny, gets incredibly weird by the end.

If you've attended a Beastie Boys concert and picked up some free literature, chances are a substantial amount of this information is already known to you.

According to legend, Catherine Zeta-Jones was 15 when this movie was made.

This subtly entrancing paean to seasons earthly and emotional is to the developing male psyche what Whale Rider is to the female, and deserves equal acclaim.

5/5
Amazing social satire with humor that never detracts from the creep-out factor. The nightmare sequence is sheer perfection.
