4/5
Christopher Walken is tied to a chair most of the movie, and he's the center of attention. If that's not a selling point, you and I will never agree on anything.

The Graduate (1967)
Hoffman may be a trifle too old for the role, but the movie's still amazing.

The kids'll love all the monsters, which are grotesque without being nightmare-inducing

Superman (1978)
If not the best superhero movie ever, it's definitely in the top 3. Reeve will forever be Superman to most of us.

Hi-larious. Shame about the sequels.

Moral scolds will undoubtedly decry this as just another violent rap movie, but much like that Jesus flick they're all digging, this... shows the harsh consequences of sin

Intermission (2003)
God bless the Irish.

Crimson Gold (2004)
There are a couple of engaging sequences...but indeed the remainder is mostly mediocre, and ultimately forced.

Caligula (1979)
Kinda dumb and tacky, but at least it's a real movie.

Assassins (1995)
Has the word "ass" in the title twice; entire plot based on "who is number one," yet entire movie is large number two.

Apparently Armageddon resembles the mosh pit at a Korn concert.

It's impossible not to feel involved on a fundamental level.

As uneven as anthology films often are, but occasionally good, goofy fun.

Badlands (1974)
A fantastic debut by Malick, who has never lived up to the promise since.

Taking Lives (2004)
It's beginning to seem as though large breasts and a willingness to flaunt them are the only attributes that separate Ms. Jolie from, say, Cuba Gooding Jr.

Moving, gripping, and powerful, suspenseful, stylish, and literate.

Those vehicles sure are big, they come right at you, and they're in one heck of a hurry. For about 40 minutes, that's all you really need.

Some judicious editing would make a huge improvement, however, because even at 90 minutes, it feels like Blamire's stretching the joke a bit thin.

Spartan (2004)
The problem with Spartan isn't so much that it's mediocre but that it could be a whole lot better.

Big Business (1988)
Fred Ward plays dumb hicks a lot, but never with quite this much comedic energy.

Melanie Griffith looks hot in that dark wig; too bad she ditches it so quickly.

Simon Magus (2001)
A little too proud of its own eccentricities, often at the expense of the story.

The worst in the series --s till an acceptable actioner, but more calculated than it's predecessors (and successor)

4/5
The movie is long, but doesn't feel that way, and despite a dearth of interesting visuals after the first 20 minutes, it makes for a welcome change of pace from Hollywood

Ridley Scott in rare form. Chick power!

Ringmaster (1998)
I think you have to applaud the absurdity of the concept, even if the execution ain't always all that.

Dirty Work (1998)
Okay starring vehicle for Norm MacDonald, but you'd think he could do better.

I liked it as a kid, and have liked it less and less every year since.

A really cool horror gem that may not be faithful but is certainly atmospheric

Eurotrip (2003)
The opening credits...are a high point, but if you're not a prude, the rest of the flick ain't bad either.

Club Dread (2004)
[A] whole lot better than the comedy troupe's last feature Super Troopers. Unfortunately, measured by any other standard, it's simply a mediocre effort

It is a pleasure and a delight to welcome director Sara Sugarman and her fine inventiveness into the machine.

If you're going to mismatch director and material so thoroughly, try getting it even more drastically wrong, like hiring Gaspar Noe or Neil LaBute.

[I]t seems as though Adam Sandler is trying to compile a Greatest Hits film...it plays more like a collection of B-sides and outtakes

The Dreamers (2004)
Just the dose of relatable mainstream art the U.S. cinema desperately requires.
