Avoid the Buena Vista DVD: this is a great film under its original title Fong Sai-Yuk, in Cantonese with English subtitles

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.

4/5
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.

Subpar slasher.

It is what it is, and frankly I don't like it.

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.

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.
Posted May 22, 2004

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.
