Poster for American Dreamer

American Dreamer


In the end, whatever entertainment it had been meaning to inspire remains solely in the heads of those who sought to bring it to life on the big screen.

Poster for Triple Frontier

Triple Frontier


It is well-made enough, and has enough action and wrinkles of interest to make for more than just an adequate diversion for those looking for something to take in on their home screens, though I would encourage those who do partake to watch this on as big a screen as possible with a good sound system, and not pumped through their cell phone — it’s cinema-worthy in every respect.

Poster for Desperately Seeking Susan

Desperately Seeking Susan


More a cute curiosity than a witty, screwball romp, Desperately Seeking Susan will nevertheless hit home for fans of Madonna, SoHo kitsch, and all things that represent the decade in which it was made.

Poster for Captain Marvel

Captain Marvel


If expectations are kept low, it’s passable entertainment, though as a means to supercharge anticipation for Avengers: Endgame the following month, it’s a failure.

Poster for She-Devil



Feminist leanings in the material could have provided a strong backbone to build a satire around, but Seidelman directs the film as if it were a broad farce, and whatever intelligence it might have had gets sucked out for cheap confrontations to evoke a few chuckles.

Poster for Alita: Battle Angel

Alita: Battle Angel


Alita: Battle Angel provides just enough action, intrigue, and interest in the character and the world around her to be entertaining enough to recommend, although some viewers may find it a disappointment that the film is not self-contained, intending that there will be a continuation in a sequel...

Poster for Greta



While it is a film rife with potential themes, where Greta errs is in trying to have its cookies and eat them too.

Poster for The Jewel of the Nile

The Jewel of the Nile


As with the first film, the adventure is peppered with humor, much of which is whimsical without pulling out any knee-slappers.

Poster for Beat Street

Beat Street


It’s a worthwhile endeavor, with some great rap music and fantastic break-dancing that mesmerizes in ways that gives the film a lift whenever it threatens to bog down to TV movie caliber dramatics.

Poster for Romancing the Stone

Romancing the Stone


Obviously, in comparison to the other obvious jungle adventure, Raiders of the Lost Ark, this film suffers, but it is arguably a more consistent good time as that follow-up the same year, Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom.

Poster for Dragonslayer



It has certainly stood up well than many sword-and-sorcery films of its era, and remains rather delightful, if you don’t mind the strains in the film’s tone from time to time, as well as the disturbing and somewhat gory moments that strain the tone toward the film’s climax.

Poster for Isn't It Romantic

Isn't It Romantic


Like most of the films it refers to, it’s pleasantly enjoyable, even those pleasures are consummately ephemeral.

Poster for Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade

Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade


There is a sense of welcome immaturity to the entire production, letting you know that it’s all in the name of fun.

Poster for Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom

Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom


It delivers on entertainment, albeit with a high amount of overhead, and if that’s all you expect, Temple of Doom gives you enough laughs, chills, and thrills to warrant multiple viewings, as long as you’re willing to overlook the often distasteful shock and schlock approach to adventure.

Poster for Raiders of the Lost Ark

Raiders of the Lost Ark


There’s something for everyone in this great classic: thrills, chills, action, adventure, romance and comedy, all of which is top-notch in every department, and all in one dense, exhilarating two hour experience.

Poster for The Kid Who Would Be King

The Kid Who Would Be King


Bright, funny, and endearing in a way that will keep adults content with the new twist on an old tale, perhaps even entertaining a percentage of adults who genuinely enjoy young adult properties that don’t have children.

Poster for Excalibur



Although not mounted with the kind of studio backing usually befitting of the genre, it looks and feels like a grandiose epic, with all of the benefits and some of the flaws that such an undertaking generally necessitates, with an alluring presentation that resonates like an unusual and striking fever dream.

Poster for The Goonies

The Goonies


The ensemble of actors proves to be fun, particularly in some of the child actor portrayals.

Poster for Vice



It’s an intriguing endeavor, but the film seems to say too much about McKay and to little about Dick Cheney to come way with much impression beyond the quality of the performances.

Poster for Glass



A bit like its namesake, an empty vessel that has no real value to its beholder without something of appealing substance to pour into it, and Shyamalan, despite an ample run time, doesn’t have enough juice to fill his more than halfway.

Poster for How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World

How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World


Though I truly enjoy the first entry in this trilogy, I’ll continue to be in the minority in feeling that the sequels aren’t as up to the story-telling and world-building standards set forth in the original.

Poster for The Man Who Killed Don Quixote

The Man Who Killed Don Quixote


That the elusive fantasy has now become reality, even if full of flaws and all, is the best thing one can say for Gilliam’s continuing to dream the impossible dream.

Poster for The Blues Brothers

The Blues Brothers


Far from a perfect comedy, and can be uneven in spots, but these momentary lapses are very difficult to remember when it’s all over.

Poster for Leave No Trace

Leave No Trace


A skillfully acted, handsomely presented and thoughtful work from Granik, who enriches her story with lots of detail and makes connections to draw us in without telegraphing where it is going or what the themes of the piece are.
