84 72% A Perfect Getaway (2009) - Rated 08 Aug 2010
"A tight story and some beautiful cinematography- loved the scenery in this one. The cast members work well with another, and Timothy Olyphant is particularly great as a gung-ho warrior type. I'd have liked to go in without any preconceptions about what I was going to see, but I still enjoyed this one quite a bit."
80 62% The Usual Suspects (1995) - Rated 08 Aug 2010
"I saw this once long ago, and didn't care for it. Having recently rewatched it, I enjoyed it much more. The cast is great, and Spacey and Byrne are particularly good. It's a polarizing movie- I can see where folks might not like it- but it's still worth watching."
80 62% Ride the High Country (1962) - Rated 08 Aug 2010
"Early as this movie comes in Peckinpah's filmography, one can see evidence of the themes he'll pursue more fully in movies like "The Wild Bunch". "Ride the High Country" is a solid little flick anchored by a good story and an excellent cast."
65 28% Terror Train (1980) - Rated 08 Aug 2010
"Pure eighties schlock. It's not particularly good and it's too long, but it's funny in a bad kind of way. Bonus points for David Copperfield's performance- the resemblance to Gob Bluth is uncanny."
97 98% The Good, the Bad and the Ugly (1966) - Rated 08 Aug 2010
"A much grander film than its predecessors in the Dollars trilogy. I can't say that it's better than A Fistful of Dollars and For a Few Dollars More, but it's certainly an equal to both. Once again, Sergio Leone creates an amazing wild west setting. It truly does feel as if the war between our protagonists is playing out against the backdrop of a much wider conflict."
100 99% Jaws (1975) - Rated 08 Aug 2010
"My favorite movie, as far back as I can remember. Scheider, Shaw, and Dreyfuss head up a perfect cast, and even small characters such as Deputy Hendricks and Ben Gardner are memorable. I don't find it particularly scary- not anymore- but I still can't go into the ocean without hearing the faint strains of the John Williams score at the back of my mind."
81 67% The Warriors (1979) - Rated 08 Aug 2010
"A neat flick, which seems as if it could have taken place in the same fictional world as Carpenter's "Escape from New York". Some of the gangs are particularly awesome and, if there was ever a film universe that deserved to be explored further, this is it."
78 55% Green Zone (2010) - Rated 08 Aug 2010
"I went in with low expectations, but I was pleasantly surprised. The plot isn't as intelligent as it thinks it is, but it serves well enough as an excuse to tie together some well-shot action scenes. The characters aren't particularly interesting- Matt Damon turns in another wooden performance and, like most of the other cast members, does little more than blurt out plot turns and get shot at. Still, it's worth a watch."
99 99% Halloween (1978) - Rated 08 Aug 2010
"As perfect a horror movie as any I've seen. Like two of my other favorite horror flicks- Phantasm and Suspiria- the emphasis here is on style over substance. But whereas those two films become mired down in convoluted, dreamlike narratives, Halloween pairs its visuals and score with a minimal but effective story. As many times as I've seen it, it's still an incredibly eerie flick."
80 62% Forgetting Sarah Marshall (2008) - Rated 25 Jul 2010
"A good movie, though two hours is a bit much. The Hawaiian scenery is beautiful, and Kristen Bell and Mila Kunis make it that much better. Jason Segel is sympathetic as the lead, and Russell Brand is great in his role. While not always hilarious, there were plenty of good jokes and the movie was engaging throughout."
