Ghostbusters 2 (1989) ?? 1/2 / ????
The boys are brought back into action hot after river of slime is drawn on by negative energy. This had the makings of a good sequel, but they blew it -- by having remaining ghostbusters almost play supporting roles and shifting focus on non-busters (Egon and Winston hardly have any lines!). Still, it's good-natured and entertaining, if a tad long. It also can't match first film's quirkiness.
Full Metal Jacket (1987) ??? / ????
Stanley Kubrick's vivid depiction of Vietnam splits in two halfs; emotionally shattering examination of boot camp and actual fighting on the field. The first half is so compelling that the second suffers in comparison, as it covers more familiar ground. Still, it's a rich viewing, and performances of R. Lee Ermey as tough drill sergeant, Vincent D'Onofrio as private loosing his mind, a knockout. Not quite among Kubrick's titans (Paths of Glory, 2001, etc) but a powerful, unforgettable film.
Tightrope (1984) ??? 1/2 / ????
One of Clint's most underrated films. Policeman and single father is brought into ugly side of New Orleans to hunt down a killer, an area he has never been to, or at least in uniform . . . Dank--very dank--but when a flawed hero wrestles with his conscience as much as with the killer it's impossible to resist such a concept. Credible all the way through and no cheap, routine resolutions or predictable outcomes; a truly mature, gripping, and intelligent thriller.
More (1969) ?? 1/2 / ????
Mildly interesting look at two individuals who fall in love with each other, then with drugs. Not a total success, but not a total waste of time, either. Pink Floyd (credited as 'the pink floyd') wrote this film's soundtrack.
