Enemy Of The State

Enemy Of The State

It was a disappointing day on many levels. First I show up to the theater and pay $2.75 for a single slice of pizza. I take it into the theater and didn't see...

I Still Know What You Did Last Summer

I Still Know What You Did Last Summer

Ever since Scream came out in 1996, the teen horror movies have been revived. We've seen some good ones like Scream, I Know What You Did Last Summer, and Scream 2. But like...

Ringmaster

Ringmaster

Every now and then, there comes a movie that is so awful, it's actually painful to watch. Movies like Nothing But Trouble, Contact, Sphere, and now Ringmaster are some of these films. This...

Arlington Road

Arlington Road

Thrillers can be really bad. When was the last time you saw a good thriller? It takes sound acting, a creative premise and most of all, suspense. Arlington Road, the new film...

Pop quiz. You're Eddie Murphy, a popular comedian who makes about a decade of bad movies. You then do a remake of a Jerry Lewis classic and you're back in the swing of...

A Civil Action

A Civil Action

The best actor nominees for the 1998 Academy Awards will probably be Jim Carrey, Tom Hanks, Ian McKellan, Nick Nolte and a wild card. Edward Norton or Jeff Bridges should fill this wild card...

American History X

American History X

It's a shame. Every year, I am disappointed with the Academy's pick for best picture of the year. Last year my favorite movie was LA Confidential. Did it win? No....

Very Bad Things

Very Bad Things

What can I say about this movie? It's completely original, unlike anything I've ever seen before. It's a pretty sick movie. It's also a drop dead (literally) hilarious movie that is one...

The Rage: Carrie 2

The Rage: Carrie 2

What is it about the teen movie? Is it just attractive people put in with bad writing and acting? Are we supposed to enjoy it? The original Carrie broke that tradition....

Varsity Blues

Varsity Blues

What makes a good football movie? God knows it's been done before. I don't think there's anything left to be done. Necessary Roughness, North Dallas Forty, even last year's Waterboy are all...

The Siege

The Siege

Think about this. What if the very city you live in, was bombed almost weekly by terrorists? What if there was nothing anybody could do? What if when you were walking down...

The Astronaut's Wife

The Astronaut's Wife

A few days ago I saw The Sixth Sense. I thought the problem with that movie was that it lost most of my interest before the movie got interesting. In The Astronaut's Wife,...

Idle Hands

Idle Hands

It's very frustrating. Teen movies can be good. The original Scream was good (although ruined by a sequel). What are they doing? She's All That? I Still Know? Varsity...

Psycho (1998)

Psycho (1998)

Well, they did it. Right down to the last scene where Marion Crane's car is dragged out of the river. And it's great. It is scarier, more frightening, and more disturbing than...

The Waterboy

The Waterboy

In the great tradition of football comedies as Necessary Roughness, Adam Sandler stars as Bobby Boucher in The Waterboy, a bumbling fool with a bad stutter. We first see Bobby as the team water...

A Simple Plan

A Simple Plan

I'll come right out and say it. Fargo was a better movie. The camera angles, landscaping, and feel you get from the story all represent 1996's Fargo. The two movies have many...

You've Got Mail

You've Got Mail

What a complete waste of time. Honestly, I can't remember the last time I saw a movie where it caused such a painful experience. It was so bad that during the last half-hour...

Analyze This

Analyze This

Abbott and Costello. Matthau and Lemmon. Crystal and De Niro? It sound odd but Billy Crystal and Robert De Niro play perfectly with each other in Analyze This. The story revolves...

The General's Daughter

The General's Daughter

I really like John Travolta. He always plays that guy with the arrogance and cockiness, but it never seems old to me. In last year's A Civil Action, he played a lawyer who...
