95% The Hudsucker Proxy (1994) - Apr 22, 2009
"I guess when a filmmaker can knock out hit-after-hit-after-hit, it's easy for one to get lost in the mesh. I wouldn't have picked this one, though. There are scenes here that rival the funniest material of the Coen's [even if it favors screwball antics] and Tim Robbins is fantastic, essential like he only was in 1994. The ending did feel a bit old hat, but it's in line with the rest."
9% From the Terrace (1960) - Oct 24, 2012
"Words fail to convey the utter banality and cringe-inducing moments that clutter this soapy, melodramatic mess. Paul Newman can only do so much, and even he seems to barely care. If this is the best that Ernest Lehman [usually a very fine screenwriter] could do, I shudder at what O'Hara's novel must contain."
95% Alice (1988) - Oct 14, 2009
"Surreal tomfoolery of this level is rarely so engaging, especially with such familiar material. I could have stayed with Svankmajer's gleeful morbidity for at least twenty minutes more."
80% Chanto tsutaeru (2009) - Dec 23, 2013
"Sion Sono does a straight, heartfelt drama and makes it work. Yeah, I'm as surprised as you are."
16% Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace (1999) - Nov 29, 2009
"Rating these movies requires way more thought than any of them deserve. Sidenote: Everyone watch MartinTeller''s link. It is one of the most comprehensive reviews I've ever witnessed, while being hilarious, and even, insightful. And he does it in a full 70 minutes while barely touching on one of the worst aspects of it - Jar Jar. Amazing."
95% Network (1976) - Sep 16, 2008
"Apropos of the greatest monologues you'll ever witness, this also delivers {arguably} the best ending line in film too."
99% Woman in the Dunes (1964) - Jul 26, 2008
"The sand - it's beautiful, it's horrible, it's everywhere, it's everything."
54% The Invention of Lying (2009) - Nov 02, 2010
"I hate that this isn't better, cause it has every right to be."
99% Paths of Glory (1957) - Nov 16, 2008
"A crowning achievement in character development - carried by phenomenal actors giving everything they have - along with cinematography well in bounds of Kubrick's finest work. Magnificent. The end piece always catches me off guard."
80% Nevinost bez zastite (1968) - Aug 15, 2010
"Well, let's see what we have here. A mix of one terrible, early Serbian talkie made during the German occupation, a documentary approach to the surviving members, and also intercut with WW2 news footage & some death-defying feats of a certain athlete. Must be a Dusan Makavejev film."
