Fall Into Me

Fall Into Me

You'd be hard-pressed to find a film more by-the-numbers than Fall Into Me, which covers some well-worn ground on its way to, on the whole, proving itself to be at least a passable romantic comedy.See...

Twin Peaks: The Complete Series

Twin Peaks: The Complete Series

X-Files, Heroes, Lost? They all owe their very souls to a short-lived TV series that ran for just two seasons from 1990-1992. You might have heard of it: Twin Peaks.I'll admit now that I wore...

Jericho: Season One

Jericho: Season One

O Lucky Man!

O Lucky Man!

Countless "human pinball" movies (think After Hours) owe a deep debt to O Lucky Man! Complex, fascinating, and even a bit confusing, the film is a sprawling, three-hour adventure that will quite literally have you...

The Hand

The Hand

Yeah, Michael Caine made horror. In fact, it's hard to imagine anything more terrifying from the early '80s than that creepy, lopped-off hand crawling around and strangling people as Caine's ex-comic book artist (who lost...

Eyes Of A Stranger

Eyes Of A Stranger

Surprisingly gruesome, this 1981 thriller is noteable primarily for the first feature film appearance of young Jennifer Jason Leigh, playing a girl so traumatized by her past that she's become hysterically deaf, mute, and blind....

Hellraiser

Hellraiser

One of the unsung titans of the horror industry, Hellraiser got its start in modest fashion that certainly didn't seem headed for sequel city. To date, eight Hellraiser films have been released (four direct to...

Cujo

Cujo

It's been 24 years since 1983, and it's time to ask... is Cujo deserving of a "Special Edition" DVD?Inexplicably marketed as a 25th Anniversary Edition (close enough, I guess), Cujo tells the now-often-imitated story of...

Think Tank

Think Tank

Think Tank itself tells us there's a thin line between "genius" and "stupid." You needn't look any further than this film, which seems to have gone straight to DVD, and which takes absurd plotting to...

While watching Deck the Halls, my wife wondered aloud when the last good Christmas movie came out. (We eventually settled on A Christmas Story in 1983.) And while there may be passable Christmas movies released...

Cruising

Cruising

Were it not set in the gay underworld of its era, 1980's Cruising would be a largely unremarkable film. But provocateur William Friedkin did set it in this underworld -- a seedy, sex-filled shocker than...

The Treatment

The Treatment

Co-writer, co-producer, and director Oren Rudavsky must have really loved the novel The Treatment. I'd wager anything he has his own issues with psychotherapy going on. Alas, good intentions and a fondness for source material...

Final Draft

I wouldn't normally bother to write anything about a movie this bad, but the very premise is so silly it deserves to be mocked aloud. Here's the movie: James Van Der Beek is desperate to...

Sleuth (1972)

It's not often that you see 2-hour dramas with only two real characters in them. Sleuth is a great example of how you can take the barest of essentials -- two great actors, one...

Robinson Crusoe on Mars

Back in 1964, Robinson Crusoe on Mars was certainly a landmark of special effects, combining animation with elaborate sets and costumes. Hand-animated spaceships of course don't fly in today's cineplex, but as a piece of...
