Looper
Really Great 83 Points 2012

Looper is one of the most satisfying movies of the year. An outstanding action picture, a mind-bending time-travel yarn and a charismatic moviestar showcase, it is exciting, thought provoking and often damn funny. Writer-director Rian Johnson must be a very hot commodity in Hollywood now base…

The Irishman
Really Great 66 Points 2019

Martin Scorsese’s The Irishman is the Forest Gump of mob movies, sans any sense of sweetness of course. The Irishman has an emotional range from glum to grim, but is Gump-like in placing its protagonist in the middle of a long series of famous moments from the early sixties to the mid seventi…

Collateral
Great 83 Points 2004

Well mounted, taut thriller with Tom Cruise as the anti-hero and a low key Jamie Foxx as his reluctant accomplice. This sleek movie, directed by the always stylish Michael Mann, never got the attention it deserved. I’d even forgotten about it until BrianSez’s review

The Iceman
Great 83 Points 2013

Pity The Iceman – the movie, not the Mafia hitman. Great mob movies are broadly treasured, even more when they’re about real guys who committed real crimes. And yet this one has flown under the radar.

Six-four, with big Polish hands, the Iceman could take anybody and often did, mostly unde…

Stand Up Guys
Great 83 Points 2013

Bucket List for Wise Guys is how to think of the great genre spoof Stand Up Guys. From perfect title to iconic moviestars, Fisher Steven’s film from a rookie writer’s script smartly uses Pacino, Walken & Arkin. Plus he surrounds the three elders with nubile ladies, some of them ladies of th…

Kill Me Three T...
Great 83 Points 2014

Kill Me Three Times is a terrifically entertaining piece of pulp fiction. Three deadly sins – wrath, greed, lust – play out in darkly comic circumstances. Set in a sunny beach town, it’s a ripper from Down Under.

The mere seven person cast seems larger. Simon Pegg ably anchors it as a hitman…

Bulletproof Heart
Very Good 66 Points 1994

Bulletproof Heart is a stylishly assembled collection of cliches. There’s not enough star power in Beverly Hills to overcome its just OK screenplay, but Anthony LaPaglia & Mimi Rogers give it the old Hollywood try nonetheless. She’s tremendous as a foxy femme fatale who is sure of what she wa…

Smokin' Aces
Good 90 Points 2006

When it comes to grading Smokin’ Aces, I’m splitting the difference between Spaceghost’s Really Great and BrianSez’s Barely OK. My Good reflects the movie’s stellar cast and glimmering Vegas visuals. That said, it ain’t good in any moral sense. In fact it’s a sociopathic cesspool that not on…

In Bruges
Good 98 Points 2008

Semi-funny and too precious for its own good, this comedy of disgrace asks us to warm up to loutish and sociopathic characters because they have their “normal” sides. They show occasional remorse, brush their teeth like normal people, one of them even has a normal family. The movie is like a Br…
