5/5
A classic Marx Bros. comedy, funny from start to finish. The stateroom scene alone is priceless. The brothers at the top of their game.

Poitier and Curtis are great. Whoever thinks Curtis is just a pretty face should see his gripping performance.

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

Camp Nowhere (1994)
A silly kids movie that should have gone straight to video.

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

A guilty-pleasure excursion with Reynolds in top form. Lots of fun.

One of the great social dramas of all time. The finale is a knock-out. One of Muni's best performances.

The subjective camera gimmick wears thin after a while. Montgomery is too light for Marlowe.

The Raven (1963)
A classic AIP horror-comedy; Lorre is priceless; Price has tongue firmly in cheek. And a young Jack Nicholson to boot!

This isn't a groundbreaking movie ... but its situations are so recognizable and universal that you don't need to be Greek to appreciate it.

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
