Perfect 66 Points 1983

The world’s greatest rock & roll band – at the peak of their powers – glimmers brightly in Hal Ashby’s awkwardly titled movie documenting their massive 1981 stadium tour. Promoting a just released Tattoo You, the 25 song set draws six tracks from that kickass album, along with three from the u…

Only the Brave
Really Great 83 Points 2017

See this movie. It’s our duty as citizens, but also deeply cathartic. Tears ran down my face, twice, yet my heart was warmed. Real men behaving chivalrously does that to me, inspires a man-cry. Strong women too!

Unwieldy title aside, Only the Brave artfully recounts the story of the 19 Arizo…

Great 83 Points 2015

Narco-gang depravity meets its match when things go military on the Mexican border in Sicario, Spanish for “hitman”. A semi-successful Emily Blunt rebels against this turn of events. Semi-successful? Her performance, not her rebellion, which is unsuccessful. Yet the movie is much more than semi…

On The Road
Very Good 66 Points 2013

I read On The Road by 21 because it was necessary. I saw On The Road this weekend to be entertained.

Entertaining it is, though cultural legacy aside, mad words about mad living don’t make a great movie, not without great acting and a cinematic story, neither of which On The Road has. …

A Million Ways ...
Very Good 83 Points 2014

A Million Ways to Die in the West is highly recommended for Seth MacFarlane fans, of which I’m sadly one. Those capable of being offended should stay away. The F-bombs rain down thick and hard, as does the scatological humor and sexual bombast. Sound funny? Yes, step right up. Heavens no, …

Lost in America
Good 66 Points 1985

Lost in America’s reputation exceeds its reality. Modestly funny in 1985, its four memorable scenes live on in the mind’s eye, but fail to sustain this mere 91 minute movie. Turns out its nest-egg wasn’t enough.

Not that it doesn’t have a great line here and there.

Don’t use “nest”! D…

Bus Stop
Good 66 Points 1956

Marilyn Monroe rescues Bus Stop, as she rescued so many of her movies, her luminescent sexuality juxtaposed against an American society inchoately besotted with her. True fans can’t avert their eyes.

To be clear, Bus Stop is a cheesy time-capsule, a Fifties classic capable of making "Alan…
