Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly

  1. Afternoon of a Faun: Tanaquil Le Clercq 2014 A spooky, heartbreaking documentary about Tanny le Clercq. full review
  2. Devil's Knot 2014 The movie sucks the audience into the power of the confessions, then shows us what really happened. full review
  3. The Missing Picture 2014 The film captures how Pol Pot took Mao's Great Leap Forward to new levels of Marxist madness. full review
  4. 20 Feet From Stardom 2013 As long as you're hearing the singing and stories of Lisa Fischer, Merry Clayton, and the great Darlene Love, you can bliss out on their passion. full review
  5. Drinking Buddies 2013 The actors all blend terrifically, making this the film equivalent of great hang time. full review
  6. G.I. Joe: Retaliation 2013 It's well-executed technocratic action fluff. But it did leave me buzzed rather than drained. full review
  7. Hannah Arendt 2013 [Barbara Sukowa] invests Arendt with a steely fury, but the film, set during and after the 1961 trial of ex--Nazi official Adolf Eichmann, has an entertaining cocktail-banter superficiality. full review
  8. The Host 2013 [A] bizarre Saturday Night Live sketch about a girl with a bratty alien inside her. full review
  9. Inequality For All 2013 Robert Reich, a secretary of labor under President Clinton, leads us through a sharp-eyed essay-meditation on the rising trend of income inequality. full review
  10. The Jeffrey Dahmer Files 2013 For hardcore Dahmer obsessives only. full review
  11. LUV 2013 The rapper and actor Common has become a highly skilled screen star, but this touchy-feely dud does him wrong. full review
  12. Metallica Through the Never 2013 Metallica, those thrash virtuosos of doom, get the grand 3-D opera they deserve: a godless-apocalypse-meets-Vegas spectacle, full of fireballs and electric chairs. full review
  13. Mother Of George 2013 Gurira acts with fire and pride and, at times, a despair bordering on instability. full review
  14. Passion 2013 Passion turns into vintage De Palma - which is to say, the film seems almost engineered to get you giggling at the extravagance of its absurdity. full review
  15. Red Flag 2013 It's conventional stuff, only executed with a smart, improv-y verve. full review
  16. Rubberneck 2013 It's like a homicide thriller directed by Todd Solondz. full review
  17. Side Effects 2013 Side Effects was shot on digital video that makes it look as if we're peering through dirty glass, but it's still a lavishly dread-fueled suspense movie full of twists, reversals, double crosses, and dangerous liaisons. full review
  18. The Smurfs 2 2013 The trouble with this stunted sequel is that the doughy, blobby-hatted Smurfs are mostly window dressing for an abrasive slapstick bash built around a tiresome kidnap plot ... full review
  19. Star Trek Into Darkness 2013 Into Darkness is a sleek, thrilling epic that's also a triumphantly witty popcorn morality play. It's everything you could want in a Star Trek movie. full review
  20. A Touch of Sin 2013 Sin, more stylized than the director's previous work, is also more detached. full review
  21. Touchy Feely 2013 Touchy Feely is minor, but these people are good company. full review
  22. The Trials Of Muhammad Ali 2013 The saga of Ali's refusal to be drafted during Vietnam becomes a profile in courage -- a tale of shocking vilification and faith lost and found. full review
  23. TV Junkie 2013 A mesmerizing documentary trip to hell. full review
  24. Upside Down 2013 Upside Down is a very fancy piece of junk. full review
  25. 360 2012 360 has a circular structure that's deftly pleasing, though the human drama is just facile enough to make it seem, in the end, a little too much like connect the dots played with people. full review
  26. The Babymakers 2012 Munn, sexy and spirited, plays Audrey as a woman without much patience for arrested-male shenanigans. You may end up feeling the same way. full review
  27. Beware Of Mr. Baker 2012 The movie salutes the rhythms and the wreckage. full review
  28. Chasing Ice 2012 If you're looking for eye-popping evidence that the world's glaciers are melting, don't miss the small-scale but spectacular documentary, Chasing Ice. full review
  29. Collaborator 2012 The dolefully talented actor Martin Donovan wrote, directed, and stars in a pressure-cooker two-hander. full review
  30. Dark Horse 2012 The most squirm-inducing aspect of Dark Horse is the way that Solondz is still stuck in his outdated loser tropes. full review
  31. Deadfall 2012 There isn't much to the characters in this morose thriller. full review
  32. Detachment 2012 Brody, as the semi-fallen idealist, has a haggard eloquence, and Tim Blake Nelson, Christina Hendricks, and James Caan, as his colleagues, act out a bitterly funny spectrum of desolation. full review
  33. For Ellen 2012 Dano does a more insolent version of his woe-is-me moroseness, but the drama is so minimalist that it's hard to glimpse the man behind the woe. full review
  34. God Bless America 2012 Bobcat Goldthwait's new movie is a burlesque that turns into a harangue that turns into a rampage. full review
  35. Headhunters 2012 This Norwegian thriller has a winning cutthroat perversity. full review
  36. House at the End of the Street 2012 This is the rare horror film so bad you almost wish it had turned into a good old connect-the-gory-dots slasher movie. The only mystery at work is how Lawrence's agent ever let her sign on. full review
  37. The House I Live In 2012 Jarecki demonstrates all the ways that the ''war'' has become futile in The House I Live In, but also how it is now an unstoppable industry, with privatized prisons run as economic engines. full review
  38. Jiro Dreams of Sushi 2012 Director David Gelb pulls back the curtain on the kitchen rituals of sushi, inviting us to experience the savory-smooth sensation of ''umami,'' roughly translated as ''Ahhh!'' full review
  39. Katy Perry: Part of Me 2012 Part of Me works hard to prove it's more than a glorified infomercial, and one reason it is more is that Perry has a startling story to tell. full review
  40. Kill List 2012 Tries to be Eyes Wide Shut, The Wicker Man, and The Twilight Zone all at once, but only makes you wish that you were watching one of them instead. full review
  41. Little Birds 2012 There's a moralistic structure there, but it leaves Lily in a place that's scarcely more reassuring than the one she first abandoned. That's what makes Little Birds not just a lesson but, in its rambling way, an organic journey. full review
  42. Little White Lies 2012 The trouble with Guillaume Canet's French gloss on The Big Chill is that it has no underlying chill. full review
  43. Loosies 2012 full review
  44. Madea's Witness Protection 2012 George's son asks for Wi-Fi, and Madea says, ''Sure, I can make you a waffle.'' That's one of the good jokes. full review
  45. Mansome 2012 The best thing about the movie is that it keeps drawing conclusions in opposite directions. full review
  46. Price Check 2012 Posey, her attention divided up into slivers, is funny as hell, but she's also terrifying in her evocation of a kind of moment-to-moment PowerPoint existence. full review
  47. Red Lights 2012 This half-clever mess of a thriller, Red Lights, gets some mileage out of its novel premise. full review
  48. Seeking Justice 2012 It's refreshing to see Nicolas Cage, non-histrionic and sort of subtle, in a halfway clever piece of indie pulp about a teacher who enlists a cult of vigilantes to kill the man who raped his wife. full review
  49. Side by Side 2012 A meditation on the ways that art and technology flow into each other. full review
  50. Tim and Eric's Billion Dollar Movie 2012 The vicious mirth is hit-or-miss but contagious. full review
  51. Being Elmo: A Puppeteer's Journey 2011 A marvelous movie. full review
  52. Bellflower 2011 Bellflower is stylishly watchable - even when it's preposterous. full review
  53. The Black Power Mixtape 1967-1975 2011 The Black Power Mixtape 1967-1975 is a tangy raw stew of history, even if it never begins to confront the contradictions that bedeviled black militancy. full review
  54. Forks Over Knives 2011 Even if you're a junk-food junkie, this exploration of the health benefits of a ''plant-based diet'' is so scrupulously researched and argued that only a fool would ignore its findings. full review
  55. Gerhard Richter Painting 2011 The film is sketchy as biography, but it proves an aging artist can still crackle with the electricity of youth. full review
  56. Into The Abyss 2011 It's really just a rambling episode of A Current Affair. full review
  57. Keep the Lights On 2011 Lindhardt, sweet and childish and achingly vulnerable, gives a stunning performance. full review
  58. Magic Trip 2011 It's like seeing the birth of the '60s, with great moments (including Neal Cassady doing speed-freak monologues). full review
  59. One Lucky Elephant 2011 What begins as a simple man-and-his-pachyderm love story ends up encompassing unexpected levels of trauma and sacrifice. full review
  60. The Perfect Host 2011 Pierce acts with an enjoyably testy flamboyance, but by the time he starts to imagine that his guests have arrived even though dinner's been canceled, the film has given him one loose screw too many. full review
  61. Polisse 2011 The film can be rambling and glib, yet it's no mere crime drama. It captures a middle-class French society that looks more humane than ours, but is just as messed up. full review
  62. Sarah Palin: You Betcha! 2011 Broomfield is so dogged that he makes 
 a case, in a deeper way than we've seen, that there's a 
 terrifying remorselessness to Palin's feuding nature. full review
  63. Trishna 2011 The shots of urban traffic jams have more spark than the story, which skips from a pregnancy to the filming of a musical to murder - without convincing us of any of it. full review
  64. The Ward 2011 Basically, this is a ghost story merged with a slasher film and sealed with a Shutter Island twist. But at least Carpenter the spook-meister knows how to goose you. full review
  65. Blue Valentine 2010 Blue Valentine wrenches us with its painful and tender understanding of how people with even this tattered a connection can lunge for love as if it were air. full review
  66. Client 9: The Rise and Fall of Eliot Spitzer 2010 Deepens the saga of New York's former governor and attorney general into the paradoxical morality play it really was. full review
  67. Countdown to Zero 2010 Countdown to Zero comes close to being nuclear-anxiety porn, yet it's the rare film that could trigger and unite the reflexes 
 of the left and the right. It makes 
 getting rid of nukes seem less like a ''cause'' than an imperative. full review
  68. Freakonomics 2010 As a movie, Freakonomics is like Jujubes for the brain -- it starts to get cloying halfway through the box. full review
  69. Love Ranch 2010 Hackford fails to squeeze the tiniest bit of juice, sexy or comic or otherwise, out of the chintzy-libertine locale. full review
  70. Rush: Beyond the Lighted Stage 2010 Fans will gorge on this deft, year-by-year portrait of the ultimate enduring cult band. And even a skeptic may come away with an affection for the intricate labor of Rush's skewed-time-signature epics. full review
  71. Somewhere 2010 Coppola is a true filmmaker, and in Somewhere she pierces the Hollywood bubble from the inside. full review
  72. Vanishing On 7th Street 2010 Mostly, we're left staring blankly at a quartet of victimized ciphers. full review
  73. Beeswax 2009 There are fine, fresh observational moments, but the film is much ado about not so much. full review
  74. The Art Of The Steal 2009 At times, The Art of the Steal is a bit too shocked by the vulgarity of commerce, but it's memorable when it meditates on the changing face of where we look at art, and how that changes the art itself. full review
  75. Blood: The Last Vampire 2009 Blood: The Last Vampire might be described as Kill Bill crossed with Buffy, only that would make it sound like more than the slapdash, thrill-less dud that it is. full review
  76. Cairo Time 2009 full review
  77. Crude 2009 It's a David-and-Goliath tale, full of anger and disturbing accusation, but it's also inspiring. full review
  78. Dare 2009 The actors, all great camera subjects, help give director Adam Salky's overly pat movie a trace of confessional conviction. full review
  79. The Secret of Kells 2009 Regrettably, the film's story is so busy yet flat that the effect isn't magical -- it's more like watching the tale of some very enchanted wallpaper. full review
  80. Tetro 2009 Tetro fuses the awkward and the ripely operatic. full review
  81. World's Greatest Dad 2009 World's Greatest Dad, Bobcat Goldthwait's latest garishly potty-mouthed and over-the-top black comedy, blows up every rule of taste, good cinema, and common sense, and somehow gets away with it. full review
  82. Bottle Shock 2008 The politics of making wine is a great subject for a movie, but this clunker doesn't do it justice; Bottle Shock is broad and coy where it needs to be smart. full review
  83. Constantine's Sword 2008 Whatever your persuasion, you'll walk out enriched. full review
  84. Downloading Nancy 2008 What makes the movie a trial to sit through isn't just the heroine's pain-freak tastes. It's that a kinkfest with this blah an emotional spectrum is selling its own chic form of puritanism -- sex with all the life force repressed. full review
  85. Elegy 2008 Director Isabel Coixet sees David's tragedy, but also his life force, and she draws brilliant work out of Cruz. full review
  86. Fly Me to the Moon 2008 The 3-D animation work in Fly Me to The Moon is brisk and sweet. full review
  87. Momma's Man 2008 Azazel Jacobs, the writer-director of Momma's Man, has done more than make another precious indie family quirkfest; he's created a true vision. full review
  88. Star Wars: The Clone Wars 2008 George Lucas is turning into the enemy of fun. full review
  89. The Babysitters 2007 The premise is out of '70s porn, and so is the overbroad satire and almost total lack of conviction. full review
  90. Descent 2007 It's been a while since we saw a demagogic feminist exploitation revenge drama, and Descent, while top-heavy with 'agenda,' is shrewdly done. full review
  91. Auf der Anderen Seite (The Edge of Heaven) (On the Other Side) 2007 A stirring drama of frayed nationality and hungry connection. full review
  92. Encounters at the End of the World 2007 [Herzog] wants us to see how these quirky researchers, in their lust to explore, are acting out a drive as primitive as nature: the need to break away from the world in order to find it. full review
  93. Flawless 2007 full review
  94. For the Bible Tells Me So 2007 As long as it's dissecting the six or seven passages in the Bible that ostensibly disparage homosexuality, this documentary ode to tolerance takes a shrewd look at how speciously selective and ahistorical the church condemnation of gays really is. full review
  95. No End in Sight 2007 Leaves you furious at an administration of armchair warriors, yet it offers the catharsis of cold, hard truth. full review
  96. Phoebe in Wonderland 2007 Phoebe appears to have obsessive-compulsive disorder (or something), but Phoebe in Wonderland is so intent on celebrating her as 'special' that it quirks up the trauma of her issues. full review
  97. Sangre De Mi Sangre 2007 full review
  98. Save Me 2007 Even those of us who find anti-homosexual 'deprogramming' to be hideously intolerant and naive may find ourselves oddly relieved that Mark is there. full review
  99. Trumbo 2007 full review
  100. Another Gay Movie 2006 full review
  101. The Benchwarmers 2006 The three losers play a series of Little League teams, snatching victory from the jaws of slapstick humiliation. full review
  102. Deep Water 2006 A spooky, moving doc that chronicles the first solo attempt to circle the world by boat. full review
  103. Lonely Hearts 2006 Leto and Hayek make their erotic psychohistrionics fun, and John Travolta and James Gandolfini, as cops, work up a dour camaraderie. full review
  104. Maxed Out 2006 Maxed Out, while occasionally muddled in its financial details, presents a more-accurate-than-not vision of a nation that is starting to look like a candidate for rehab, on both an individual and a national level, for its addiction to debt. full review
  105. Sherrybaby 2006 ... emotionally arresting ... full review
  106. The Fog 2005 We're meant to be unsettled by digital spectres, reckless Mack trucks, and rotting old pirates who look every bit as terrifying as the guy on the Fisherman's Friend cold-lozenge box. full review
  107. Forgiving Dr. Mengele 2005 This moving film explores the trauma of a Holocaust survivor with rare complexity. full review
  108. Into Great Silence 2005 For two hours and 42 minutes, Into Great Silence offers painterly images of an existence that is, almost literally, too reverent for words. full review
  109. Stoned 2005 It never truly reveals who Brian Jones was before he fell apart. His indulgence, and his demise, play out in a void. full review
  110. Wal-Mart: The High Cost of Low Price 2005 With little fanfare, Robert Greenwald has become one of the most incisive activist filmmakers in America. full review
  111. xXx: State of the Union 2005 This is that rare B movie that's rooted in gut-level stirrings of power and retaliation. full review
  112. You're Gonna Miss Me 2005 Director Keven McAlester thinks he's making Crumb, but he doesn't give you enough of [Roky] Erickson in his glory. You're Gonna Miss Me has the taint of exploitation. full review
  113. White Chicks 2004 A tawdry excuse for a movie, but it has a handful of shameless giggles. full review
  114. Wicker Park 2004 Makes your brain spin in surprising and pleasurable ways. full review
  115. The Battle of Shaker Heights 2003 The filmmakers ended up with a teen flick of Tinkertoy sensitivity in which the assorted story arcs ... are all setup and no follow-through. full review
  116. DysFunKtional Family 2003 For every bit that's flatly derivative ... there's another that connects. full review
  117. The Haunted Mansion 2003 The Haunted Mansion is tame and witless enough to make me long for the ancient, dusty fright kitsch of The Munsters. full review
  118. A League of Ordinary Gentlemen 2003 A League of Ordinary Gentlemen looks fondly back at an era when bowling was the most popular leisure activity in America. full review
  119. Scary Movie 3 2003 A hit-or-miss affair, but the gags that connect really connect. full review
  120. Bukowski: Born into This 2002 It reveals Bukowski to be a far grander artist than his bum's armor would suggest. full review
  121. The Deserted Station 2002 It's not often you encounter a film that's simultaneously as tedious and moving as The Deserted Station. full review
  122. Lost in La Mancha 2002 The filmmakers, Louis Pepe and Keith Fulton, get perilously close to the glitches and backbiting, the mad logistical frustrations that derailed Gilliam's Quixote. full review
  123. The New Guy 2002 Qualls moves his marionette body around with a true clown's effervescence, and he does rubber-faced parodies of youth cool that are just what youth cool deserves. full review
  124. Paid in Full 2002 A fake street drama that keeps telling you things instead of showing them. full review
  125. Star Trek - Nemesis 2002 As lo-fi as the special effects are, the folks who cobbled Nemesis together indulge the force of humanity over hardware in a way that George Lucas has long forgotten. full review
  126. Apocalypse Now Redux 2001 Apocalypse Now Redux is the meandering, indulgent art project that he was still enough of a craftsman, in 1979, to avoid. full review
  127. Born Romantic 2001 Is whimsicality the last refuge of the mediocre? full review
  128. Get Over It 2001 Get Over It is mostly an amateur hour fiasco. full review
  129. Not Another Teen Movie 2001 A big, fat, juicy spitball lobbed, with mostly dead-on aim, at the teen-smarm cliches that have accumulated like so much earwax over the last three years. full review
  130. Novocaine 2001 There are many things wrong with Novocaine, but the film's most gnawing pain is its clodhopper farfetchedness. full review
  131. Pootie Tang 2001 As brilliant as Rock can be, this material is a reflection of his shallow, moralistic side. full review
  132. Scary Movie 2 2001 An act of nose-thumbing that never quite figures out how, or even where, to position its thumb. full review
  133. The Score 2001 A sturdily diverting old fashioned heist thriller. full review
  134. Vanilla Sky 2001 If Crowe's eyes are open, he seems to have directed most of Vanilla Sky with his mind wide shut. full review
  135. The Wash 2001 So ramshackle it's nearly enough to make you forget how tossed-together the 1976 Car Wash was. full review
  136. Gossip 2000 Gossip is mostly hot air. full review
  137. 28 Days 2000 Bullock gives it her all; she's bristling and alive on screen in a way that she hasn't been since Speed. full review
  138. The Adventures of Rocky & Bullwinkle 2000 full review
  139. Committed 2000 full review
  140. Malena 2000 [Bellucci] has presence, maybe even talent, but you wish that Malena's inner life had been given as much accent as her outer charms. full review
  141. The Man Who Cried 2000 There's only one performer in the movie who looks completely at ease with what he's doing: the horse. full review
  142. Merci Pour le Chocolat 2000 Huppert gives what may be her wittiest passive-aggressive performance yet. full review
  143. Mission: Impossible 2 2000 It's eye candy that detonates. full review
  144. The Original Kings of Comedy 2000 Contains an honest handful of sly and hilarious moments. full review
  145. Reindeer Games (Deception) 2000 Frankenheimer ... treats this trashy, disreputable material with a brute squareness so leaden and dour it's practically Teutonic. full review
  146. Scream 3 2000 The only thing the movie kills with any decisiveness is your time. full review
  147. Shaft 2000 If nothing else, Shaft is spicy fast food. full review
  148. 42 Up 1999 On some level, 42 Up is a startling home-movie time capsule. Simply to behold the aging process with such intimacy is enough to give you a shudder. full review
  149. Boys Don't Cry 1999 Lyrical and galvanizing. full review
  150. An Ideal Husband 1999 An enjoyable, minor, lustrously shot revamping of Oscar Wilde's play about the perpetually interlocked manners of love and deception. full review
  151. In Too Deep 1999 The movie is a weakly scripted shambles. full review
  152. Mansfield Park 1999 It's alluring to see a costume drama that takes us inside the subtlest, most wrenching realities of money. full review
  153. Music of the Heart 1999 There really is a Roberta Guaspari, but this dull, wanly repetitive teacher movie fails to bring her story to life. full review
  154. Runaway Bride 1999 We can no longer buy Roberts in her tearful romantic - melancholy mode. full review
  155. She's All That 1999 full review
  156. Superstar 1999 full review
  157. Teaching Mrs. Tingle 1999 Depressing! full review
  158. The Thomas Crown Affair 1999 In its sneaky and offhanded way, The Thomas Crown Affair is a tribute to the art of stealing beauty. full review
  159. The Virgin Suicides 1999 Worth seeing. full review
  160. Belly 1998 full review
  161. Can't Hardly Wait 1998 A high-spirited, synthetically raucous house-party comedy. full review

  164. Jack Frost 1998 Jack Frost is so treacly and fake it makes you feel like you're trapped in a winter-wonderland paperweight. full review

  174. The Fifth Element 1997 full review
  175. Hercules 1997 A Disney fable savvy enough not to let its sincerity get in the way of its zippy multimedia charm. full review
  176. The Ice Storm 1997 full review
  177. Jackie Brown 1997 It's like a scuzz-bucket film noir directed by Stanley Kubrick at his most static-mesmeric. full review

  184. The Craft 1996 full review
  185. The Crow: City of Angels 1996 Even for teens hooked on the grandiloquence of death-metal masochism, the movie may seem closer to an endless Sunday in church. full review
  186. From Dusk Till Dawn 1996 Imagine two movies plucked from opposite sides of the video store. full review
  187. Happy Gilmore 1996 [A] one-joke Caddyshack for the blitzed and jaded. full review
  188. Harriet the Spy 1996 full review
  189. The Hunchback of Notre Dame 1996 It's an emotionally rounded fairy tale that balances darkness and sentimentality, pathos and triumph, with uncanny grace. full review
  190. James and the Giant Peach 1996 At its lyrical best, James and the Giant Peach, an adaptation of Roald Dahl's 1961 children's classic, evokes the casual enchantment of a book that, for many kids (including me), cast the spell of a goofily blissed-out mirage. full review
  191. Love Serenade 1996 full review
  192. The Pallbearer 1996 full review
  193. Pocahontas 1996 Why make a Disney cartoon and take all the fun out of it? full review
  194. Scream 1996 full review
  195. Bad Boys 1995 Of course, the Simpson-Bruckheimer approach may still work at the box office (the only place it ever really mattered, anyway). By now, though, I'd like to think most moviegoers have had a permanent overdose. full review
  196. Blue in the Face 1995 full review
  197. The Brady Bunch Movie 1995 full review
  198. Clockers 1995 full review
  199. Clueless 1995 There's such a gaping discontinuity between her physical beauty and her vacant, gum-snapping personality that she's like a walking advertisement for everything that's right and wrong with America. full review

  231. Boomerang 1992 full review
  232. Bram Stoker's Dracula 1992 Oldman is so vivid and funny as the cackling, centuries-old Dracula that we look forward to seeing what he'll do in the London scenes. full review
  233. Far and Away 1992 full review
  234. Juice 1992 Coming out from behind Spike Lee's camera, Ernest Dickerson has instantly arrived at the forefront of the new wave of black directors. His film aims for the gut, and hits it. full review
  235. A League of Their Own 1992 From its jokey, one-note characters to its endless baseball montages, A League of Their Own is all flash, all surface: It's a great big trailer for itself. full review

  241. The Addams Family 1991 They're creepy and they're predictable? Mysterious and rather tame? full review
  242. Backdraft 1991 Backdraft has some of the raw filmmaking excitement that has been missing from Howard's recent work. full review

  253. The People Under The Stairs 1991 If there were truth in advertising, The People Under the Stairs would be called The Not Very Scary Movie Set Inside a Grungy, Badly Lit House. full review
  254. The Silence of the Lambs 1991 Demme has created a supremely sensuous and hypnotic thriller, one that's likely to become his first major hit. full review

  256. Soapdish 1991 full review
  257. Terminator 2: Judgment Day 1991 Terminator 2 is a state-of-the-art action movie, all right: It gets you thinking that the most reasonable thing might just have been to blow everyone away. full review

  259. Cry-Baby 1990 full review

  267. Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer 1986 The fact that Henry is affectless on the surface but commits exploitation-movie mayhem on the side is, by now, less an unsettling revelation than a rote banality. full review
  268. Gojira 1954 Godzilla is now more 'serious,' yet its tone just veers closer to that of solemn American B-horror cheese like Them! full review
  269. /titles/197134 It's painful, not to mention flat-out witless, to see two actors this genial play fuddy-duddies who learn that Christmas is coming to their living room... or else. full review
