2001: A Space Odyssey 0

Dave Bowman has his run-in with the monolith and suddenly we have the quintessentially '60s interpretation of infinity: a bad LSD trip and a lava lamp.

30 Minutes or Less2

How can we identify with a pizza delivery boy who's had a bomb strapped to his chest in a plot that steals the absolute worst parts from films like "Heat," "Speed" and "Speed 2: Cruise Control"?  The answer is, we can't – not even a little bit.

A Clockwork Orange 5

Apparently, they mistook Alex for India.

A Simple Plan 0

Hank is an educated guy, but for some reason, he's sitting in the snow with two inbred morons who, just prior to that, were peeing their names into that very snow.

Absolute Power1

Frankly, I think this whole "Bridges of Madison County" fiasco hasmade Clint soft. He ought to check into a rest home where he can needlepoint pictures of baby ducks and stop exposing his touchy-feely side in public.

Addicted to Love0

There are occasions when I wake up in the middle of the night and every pore in my body is screaming "Kill Matthew Broderick! Kill Matthew Broderick!"

Air Force One0

The avalanche of incongruities begins in the first few minutes.

When Kane gets his face sucked, everyone except Ripley thinks it's a swell idea to bring him on board where they can poke at him and hopefully make the face-sucking creature mad.

What exactly is it about "concentrated acid for blood" that these people don't understand?

To get at the core of a movie like "Amélie," it pays to consider the source: France.

American Beauty0

Wow, if illuminating a red door to signal danger is great cinematography, my pet rabbit is looking for work.

10/01/1999 - 20:11
American Splendor0

The circus has a freak show for a reason.

Antonia's Line0

("Antonia's Line") won the 1996 Oscar for BestForeign Language Film, which, rather than being an award based on quality, is usually the mark of a film the Academy found to be the least confusing among the nominated entrants.

Apollo 130

I hate to ruin the movie for anyone but here's the end: they land.

Another major drawback to this movie is that it spoils your appetite for nice, creamy B.L.T. sandwiches.

Being John Malkovich0

Ask me which movie star's brain would be my first choice to spend time in and John Malkovich is not my first answer.

Big Fish4

Isn't it interesting that suddenly the hero in Burton's story is the wildly creative storyteller who's a legend in his own mind?

Black Hawk Down0

Every country is guilty of creating hierarchies of human life and viewing its loss in terms of national affiliation, and movies do nothing more than turn this activity into a self-justifying game.

Bloody Sunday0

Religion is such a great fire-starter when people all look alike, isn't it?
