THX 1138 (1971)
Lucas' vision of the future is disturbing. A wonderful first effort.

Blue Crush (2002)
Blue Crush is as predictable as the tides. ... The movie feels stitched together from stock situations and characters from other movies.

A horror film that would have been better with someone else in the lead. Still, it's a classic.

John Ford at his dark and brooding best. Lee Marvin is great. Stewart is too old to play the young lawyer. Wayne is solid. A Valentine to the West that was found only in legend

Wolf (1994)
A different approach to the werewolf saga, aided by Nicholson's bizarre performance

A timeless classic, Wayne's most complex role. For anyone who says he cannot act, check this movie out!

XXX (2002)
XXX is James Bond for the grunge crowd, an unapologetically silly adrenaline rush that is pure escapism.

Blood Work (2002)
This is a murder mystery in which fitting together the pieces of the puzzle takes precedence over the solution.

Signs (2002)
From the opening credits, dominated by an intriguing score by James Newton Howard, Signs draws you in, holding you in expectation as Shyamalan peels his story as leisurely as if he were paring an apple.

There's really not much of anything to recommend about this movie except the opening. After that, Goldmember turns to pyrite.

3.5/4
In a summer overrun with movies dominated by CGI aliens and super heroes, it revigorates the mind to see a feature that concentrates on people, a project in which the script and characters hold sway.

Definitely in the guilty pleasure B-movie category, Reign of Fire is so incredibly inane that it is laughingly enjoyable.
