King Kong (1933)
Though the story's logic is ludicrous if one ever stops to think about it, the movie creates a reality all its own.

3/5
Somewhat less successful than the original, not just because it necessarily must lean heavily on clips from the first movie

Maintains an effective balance between the kiddie toon and the more subtle comics it was based on. Koteas is miscast, though.

Henry Fool (1998)
Has some good acting and ideas, but Hartley doesn't seem to know how to end the thing.

Generally fairly tedious and predictable, without being especially believable.

Rashômon (1951)
A classic head-game of perception versus reality.

A strong toxin requires a strong antidote. Certain to have some impact on the upcoming election.

Jim Varney at the peak of his comedic powers, playing two instantly distinctive roles. If you only ever see one Ernest movie, make it this one.

Leonetti is a great cinematographer, but as director, well...

The Notebook (2004)
if you're the sort who enjoys shedding [tears] in darkened theaters, your must-see summer movie has arrived.

Sorry, but it really isn't that scary in this day and age.

True Lies (1994)
Could stand to have about 30 minutes excised -- but the final one-liner is classic.

It's a good thing people finally recognized Selma Blair's talent so she could stop making movies like this.

Labyrinth (1986)
Great production design; if only the ending weren't so lame.

UHF (1989)
If the idea of a Weird Al movie is anathema to you, just don't bother reading anything I write, ever.

Two Brothers (2004)
Everyone loves tigers, save perhaps for those actually being mauled to death by them.

More calamitous, however, was the decision to dub the film in English. And not just dub, but only partially dub.

Palmetto (1997)
Just an average neo-noir that's kinda fun to watch once on cable.

Bambi (1942)
Overrated by people who never read the original book and think kids' voices with speech impediments are cute.

Good set-up; less pay-off than I'd hoped.

Not sure where the producers get off implying that this sports-movie satire is in any way true, but it's so preposterous, few are likely to be confused.

A smugly scatterbrained movie development committee throws the sociological kitchen sink at anyone stupid enough to care about Ann Coulter.

The Body (2001)
A heartfelt and powerful examination of faith that no serious student or enthusiast of theology or philosophy should miss

Not as enjoyably over-the-top as the subsequent HBO series would be, but a decent British horror anthology.

Whiteboyz (1999)
Whiteboys is almost as short on substance as its poseur protagonists

Cool as Ice (1991)
The most brilliantly insane pop-star movie ever, lensed by Spielberg regular Janusz Kaminski and loaded with stylistic strangeness. Ice Rules!

Love, Etc. (1999)
For anyone who has ever been betrayed by love, or wanted someone they couldn't have, Love, Etc. is a dead-on analysis, and a must-see.

Director Julie Bertucelli...doesn't have a very distinctive visual style, but she's aided tremendously by the architecture and scenery of Georgia

It's all about Murray, who plays Garfield like he's that old lounge singer from Saturday Night Live

Supposed to be a reverse-gender parable about domestic violence, it fails on most levels.

Cuarón has also taken more narrative liberties than Columbus did, and all of them are good, restructuring the film's chronology for increased dramatic impact
