Home Alone Review


OK
Back in 1990, Home Alone was a movie sensation. Believe it or not, it earned more than $285 million during its theatrical release, more than Monsters, Inc., Raiders of the Lost Ark, and The Incredibles.

Deranged Review


OK
Norman Bates is back (well, his alter-ego, anyway) in this silly slasher flick from 1974, about an older man who's trying to keep his dead mother's body intact by harvesting the flesh of his lady friends.

Escape From Alcatraz Review


Very Good
Our man Clint got another peek at San Francisco as Frank Morris, the legendary criminal who is believed to have been one of only three men who, well, escaped from Alcatraz. While it's pretty low-budget, the movie is quite authentic and was filmed at the actual prison. Eastwood is dour and gruff, yet he's quite engaging as the unlikely hero. And while a few things have been obviously upped for drama's sake, the movie is still quite good on the whole, and definitely worth a look for any fan of history.
