Perfect 66 Points 2013

The Coen Brothers latest is one of their best, strong praise indeed for the creators of classics that include The Big Lebowski, Intolerable Cruelty and Miller’s Crossing. Yet their evocation of a fictionalized early Sixties folk scene is pitch perfect. Star turns, outstanding songs and more tha…

La La Land
Really Great 83 Points 2016

La La Land is everything it’s cracked up to be: romantic, brilliant, whimsical, thought provoking, so L.A. Thus it’s a great date movie and a worthy best picture contender, the latter all the more likely after it swept the Golden Globes. Plus it reunites Ryan Gosling & Emma Stone, the Bogie &…

Really Great 66 Points 2011

Essential Beatles viewing. Say no more. Say no more.

Well … here’s more.

  • A Martin Scorsese Picture, which says right there you gotta watch it. I mean Martin F’ing Scorsese making a picture about George Harrison is a fusion of two pop culture demigods.
  • It’s a treasure trove of Bea…

The School of Rock
Really Great 66 Points 2003

Cute kids turn into real rockers under Jack Black’s masterful tutelage in this classic movie about classic rock. Still funny the third time through, School of Rock charms, tickles and – most importantly – rocks.

In the classic words of The School of Rock’s nutty professor – "It’s a toast to…

Really Great 66 Points 2012

Charlie is My Darling is the dangerous younger brother to A Hard Day’s Night. Beatles ‘64. Stones ‘65.

Mercy, Mercy was more than a Rolling Stones song in 1965. It was what they wanted from their ravenous fans, a besotted mob of hormonally charged teens. Beatlemania had nothing on the…

Really Great 17 Points 2017

This well done documentary gets more personal than most, and the fact that Gaga herself made herself so vulnerable for the documentary is impactful. The lady is dramatic both on stage and in real life, but what I learned is that she’s an utmost driven professional, and the quality of her life’s…

Really Great 66 Points 1954

There’s No Business Like Show Business and there was no show business phonier than vaudeville, till movies. So an overtly phony movie about vaudeville makes for a phony convergence. It was perhaps the last of the musical extravaganzas, a calorically rich compendium of Irving Berlin’s showstoppi…
