Super 8
Really Great 83 Points 2011

Spielbergian indeed — middle school kids running their own show, parents stricken with tragedy, lots of bike riding, police cruisers and one big honking Air Force train in one hell of a crash.

Cincinnati, we’ve got a problem.

And America’s got a really great summer blockbuster. Set in mid…

More Than a Game
Really Great 83 Points 2008

Ain’t no better basketball movie than this boys-to-men documentary about LeBron James and his brothers-in-hoops. Also a brilliant and touching portrait of half a dozen contemporary African-American males, More Than a Game can be enjoyed equally well by non-basketball fans.

Part of its brill…

Great 69 Points 2013

The Kings of Summer starts with a title so perfect it’s a wonder it’s never been used before. It proceeds to gently satire and lovingly fantasize about coming-of-age in small town America, just pre-facebook.

The movie gets regularly punctuated by genuinely funny lines, some LOL. Good thing…

FrackNation
Great 66 Points 2013

Fracking is a virtual four-letter word for the Environmental Left, and a byword for American ingenuity, economic growth and geopolitical strength for its fans. Irish journalist Phelim McAleer falls into the latter camp for reasons that he documents convincingly and engagingly in FrackNation.

Race
Great 69 Points 2016

“Jesse Owens, American Hero” are four words that were imprinted in my mind from an early age. Jackie Robinson stands with him as an icon of African-American greatness, and therefore of American greatness, but Jesse Owens came first, by a lot. Plus he won not just one but four Gold Medals and did …

Ready Player One
Great 83 Points 2018

Ready Player One is plenty of fun, yet is leavened by SciFi seriousness. It’s also kind of a cult movie, yet worked for a newbie like me. The more pop culture you know, especially 80s pop culture, the more fun it is.

Steven Spielberg’s best SciFi in 25 years is often an extended visual tickl…

Kill the Irishman
Great 83 Points 2011

Who knew there was another only-in-America mobster story ideally suited for a biographical crime movie? Kill the Irishman is that movie and Danny Greene is the mobster it brings to life, a self-made man who rose to run a large swath of the Cleveland rackets in the Seventies. It’s a rich story, …

Draft Day
Very Good 83 Points 2014

Draft Day scores with football fans and our dates alike. They like it because it’s cute, with a happy ending. We like it because it’s got Jim Brown, Roger Goodell and Arian Foster. Oh yeah, and Kevin Costner, the guy occupying the poster. Costner scores big as the movie’s anchor, kind of Cr…
