Rating History

Saturday Night Fever
4 days ago via Rotten Tomatoes

Saturday Night Fever (1977) C-118m. ??? D: John Badham. John Travolta, Karen Lynn Gorney, Barry Miller, Joseph Cali, Paul Pape. Slice of life about grappling teen who gets nowhere except at the dance floor. Travolta is excellent, and film surprisingly moving; unfairly labeled as only a "disco film". That being said, this film gives a credible representation of quite an embarrassing moment in the development of music. Soundtrack by the Bee Gees, other artists included. Only complaint: overuse of the f word. Followed by a sequel--STAYING ALIVE (1983).

The Godfather, Part II
11 days ago via Rotten Tomatoes

Godfather: Part II, The (1974) C-200m. **** D: Francis Ford Coppla. Al Pacino, Robert Duvall, Diane Keaton, Robert De Niro, John Cazale, Talia Shire, Lee Strasberg, Michael V. Gazzo, G.D. Spradlin, Harry Dean Stanton, Abe Vigoda, James Caan. Movie magic and vivid storytelling at its zenith. Brilliantly written, directed, acted, and conceived continuation of a great movie (THE GODFATHER). This one contrasts lives of mafia leader Pacino and N.Y.C immigrant De Niro in early 1900s. One of the most ambitious and unforgettable films ever. Mario Puzo also contributed to the screenplay.

Friday the 13th
21 days ago via Rotten Tomatoes

Friday the 13th (1980) C-95m. ? 1/2 D: Sean S. Cunningham. Betsy Palmer, Adrienne King, Jeannine Taylor. Unknown killer slices up teenagers at summer camp. Gory and boring, not scary, just stupid. A slick finish earns this bonus points above its sequel(s).

Caddyshack
Caddyshack (1980)
29 days ago via Rotten Tomatoes

Caddyshack (1980) C-98m. ? 1/2 D: Harold Ramis. Chevy Chase, Rodney Dangerfield, Ted Knight, Michael O'Keefe, Bill Murray. Exclusive golf course now puts up with pushy member and ruinous Murray, among other shenanigans. Irrelevance and destruction take place of comedy in nearly defenseless farce (it does offer Dangerfield at his funniest). Play an actual game of golf instead. Followed by CADDYSHACK II.

The Princess Bride

½

Princess Bride, The (1987) C-98m. ?? 1/2 D: Rob Reiner. Cary Elwes, Mandy Patinkin, Robin Wright, Peter Falk, Wallace Shawn, Fred Savage, André the Giant, Wallace Shawn, Billy Crystal. A grandfather (played by Falk) reads an adventure/fairy tale to his grandson about a beautiful young woman and her true love, who must find and rescue her after a long separation. Well-cast film has some grand moments (and terrific swashbuckling sequences) but the parts are greater than the whole . . . and the story is thoroughly weakened by sporadic comic shtick and instances of incoherencey via characters.
