I, Madman (1989)
A passable low-budget horror flick with a winning performance by Jenny Wright (Near Dark).

3/4
Caan and Arkin have great chemistry and the vehicle stunts are spectacular in this entertaining, very 1970s buddy-cop movie.

3.5/4
Walter Hill wrote this tough, uncompromising story of two down-on-their-luck private eyes. Marks a career high for both stars of TV's I Spy. Another of those overlooked 1970s gems that's ripe for rediscovery.

So Fine (1981)
A very funny, underrated comic romp from the early '80s.

The Evil (1978)
A good haunted-house movie with some inventive death scenes.

Hooper (1978)
A highly entertaining tribute to Hollywood stuntmen. The best of the Burt Reynolds-Hal Needham collaborations.

Stroker Ace (1983)
A zany cornpone comedy that made me laugh. So sue me.

The In-Laws (1979)
Inspired lunacy.

Nighthawks (1981)
A taut urban thriller with a hissable villain and an unforgettable ending. One of Stallone's best films.

2.75/4
Cruising (1980)
William Friedkin's Cruising is an interesting, albeit grisly, detective story before being damaged by an abrupt, out-of-the-blue and totally unsatisfying ending.

3/4
An intense, gripping and serious horror film. Has aged quite well since its theatrical release.

3.5/4
Creepshow (1982)
A wickedly funny horror anthology. Creepshow is a devilish delight, and the most entertaining film George Romero ever directed.

3/4
Wolfen (1981)
The often muddled, but scary Wolfen tops The Howling and An American Werewolf in London as the best of 1981's three worthwhile lupine thrillers.

3.5/4
Dracula (1979)
The casting is right on target and the atmosphere fittingly eerie in director John Badham's suspenseful, handsomely-mounted 1979 version.

3.5/4
Fright Night (1985)
Tom Holland's directorial debut is a wildly entertaining concoction that perfectly blends horror and comedy. Roddy McDowall steals the show as TV horror host Peter Vincent.

4/4
The Thing (1982)
John Carpenter equaled the unrelenting suspense of Halloween with this nerve-racking remake. Carpenter's The Thing is one of the all-time great horror films.

A raucous geezer comedy that contains several hilarious moments where you're laughing well into the next scene.

3.5/4
A beautiful testament to the strength of the human spirit. This version of Les Miserables is a triumph for everyone involved.

Cobb (1994)
Completely enthralling from first frame to last, Cobb is a fascinating, uncompromising portrait of a rage-filled, contradictory man fighting his own private war with the world.

3/4
Timecop (1994)
Thanks to Hyams' professionalism, Timecop is a slickly-made, fast-paced and mildly-diverting B movie.

4/4
Q & A (1990)
Sidney Lumet's third film about corruption in the NYC police department is a gritty, gripping and profane thriller with a powerhouse performance by an intimidating Nick Nolte.

3.5/4
This remake is a terrific suspense-thriller in its own right. Ranks with other underrated Peter Hyams films such as Capricorn One, Outland and The Star Chamber as one his best.
