Like many French products, it's quirky but not all it's cracked up to be.

Moments of humor that still have legs today. And many moments that don't.

If you can watch the opening fifteen minutes without wincing, you're made of stern stuff. One of Li's most brutal works.

Incredible ineptitude, a terminally shaky camera and plotholes you could drive the universe through.

Definitely worth watching, but goes a little OTT.

Gone Fishin' (1997)

Oz

Like any Pesci outing post-Goodfellas, this can be described with one word; that word is 'hackneyed'.

Pacino at the top of his game. A riveting ride.

Awakenings (1990)

Oz

The beginning of Robin Williams' belief that being 'nice' equals cinematic brilliance. A mixed bag that received more acclaim than it should have.

Timecop (1994)

Oz

Only worth renting if you've got a poker game and a bottle of Jack Daniels going. View it straight and you'll be too busy rolling your eyes to keep up.

Dumb fun, schlocky dialogue, dated music. You can't not enjoy it at some base level, but it sure won't leave you smarter.

Duck Soup (1933)

Comedy 101. The Marx Brothers - there is no substitute.

Soft Fruit (1999)

Oz

An absolute delight. Heartfelt and surprising from the first minute, no beter film has left Australian shores since Romper Stomper. And yes, I'm including Shine in that.

It looks like an action movie, sounds like an action movie, but there's a lot more going on here.

S.F.W. (1994)

Oz

S.F.W. has a very apt title. After watching ten minutes of this garbage, you'll be exclaiming "S.F.W." yourself.

The Graduate (1967)

Should be compulsory viewing for any director, writer, editor or actor about to set foot in Hollywood.

There was a time when Adam Sandler was genuinely funny. Oh, how we miss those times.

In a career of poor choices, perhaps this one was the worst. Oh sure, it made money, but it also turned Emilio Estevez into Leslie Nielsen.

A surprisingly underrated little thriller which should have helped Nivola earn his Hollywood stripes.

Das Boot (1981)

Unmitigated brilliance. Every frame, every word, every 'ping' is something that will burrow deep into your psyche.

Mafia! (1998)

Every moment of laughter is punctuated by the loud thud of the next joke. Mohr deserves more than this hackneyed screenplay.

There's a good movie somewhere in here trying to escape... the audience can relate to that desire.

While a little Jarmusch is a good thing, a lot can be a bit much to take. At least when he's in this mood.
