Raging Bull
Really Great 75 Points 1980

Brutally brilliant, Raging Bull grew legendary after fading from the silver screen. It remains one of the greatest movies ever made, flawed only by Cathy Moriarty’s disappointing portrayal of Vickie La Motta. Everything else – notably Scorsese’s up-close and personal filmmaking, coupled with …

Goldfinger
Really Great 66 Points 1964

Goldfinger has everything we love about James Bond, other than a memorable Bond girl. It’s got Sean Connery driving his legendary Aston Martin, complete with ejector seat and machine guns. It’s got a great “Bond, James Bond” and “Shaken, not stirred.” Most valuably, Goldfinger himself is a t…

Out of Sight
Really Great 66 Points 1998
Out of Sight and into the pantheon of crime-comedies – start with Stephen Soderburgh directing George Clooney in an Elmore Leonard story. Speaking of gorgeous, J-Lo gets into the trunk with G-Cloo.

Other positives: Bright bluesy opening; Danny DeVito’s Jersey Films producing; Clooney, youn…

Chef
Great 83 Points 2014

Jon Favreau clocks a home run with Chef, a flat-out fantastic little movie. Funny and feel-good, yet not fatuous, Favreau downshifts from Iron Man into an almost equally impressive result. The guy wrote the story and stars as a likable da…

Pain & Gain
Very Good 83 Points 2013

Two charismatic moviestars leading a super-strong cast; only-in-Florida story; Miami Vice visual stylings: not enough to push Michael Bay’s Pain & Gain over the top into greatness. At 129 minutes, it’s almost a third too fat. Two hours and 9 minutes is too much to ask when it comes to psychopat…

Miami Vice
Good 66 Points 2006

Tough enough and cool enough, though lacking the occaisional sense of humor Mann inserted in the series.

Colombiana
Good 95 Points 2011

Take Scarface with a grain of Salt to grok Colombiana. If only this cocaine mafia thriller approached the quality of its inspirations. It’s not that it’s bad. It was perfectly fine airplane entertainment. It’s just that the story and stunts aren’t clever enough to pay off their outrageo…

Any Given Sunday
Barely OK 83 Points 1999

Yuck. A big F. U. to the NFL that hypocritically revels in jock sniffing, Any Given Sunday qualifies as a guilty treat mainly due to its extensive use of legendary players. Non-fans should steer clear.

Oliver Stone manages the near impossible: making the NFL banal. He wastes copious star …

Ride Along 2
Pretty Bad 66 Points 2016

Kevin Hart mugs strenuously throughout Ride Along 2, but it’s not nearly enough to give the movie comedic lift. Indeed, there’s only one other comic actor in the cast with him and that’s Ken Jeong, who is more annoying than funny. Everyone else is a straight man, which means the movie simply is…
