MacArthur (1977)
A woefully overblown biography with a wooden Indian Peck as MacArthur. He poses instead of acts.

A wonderful Universal B-horror; the first of the all-star monster fests. Lots of fun with J. Carrol Naish almost stealing the show as the hunchback Daniel.

Even Tom Hanks had to start somewhere, and this lame comedy is one of his earliest works. That is its only attribute.

Simone (2002)
S1M0NE's satire is not subtle, but it is effective. It's a quirky, off-beat project. ...
