13 Assassins
Perfect 95 Points 2011

A perfect samurai movie, complete with the gathering of a hit-squad, an assassination-worthy villain, operatic action sequences, frequent comic relief, beautifully bucolic staging, buckets of blood and yet not a lot of gore. Action fans in general and samurai fans in particular will be tickled, …

Mr. & Mrs. Smith
Really Great 83 Points 2005

Moviestar movies get no better than this one. Super hot, totally cold and dead-bang funny, this huge hit could have been overwhelmed by the fusion of its soon-to-be-coupled stars. Instead Brangelina’s debut perfectly serves the power-couple satire, even more so in hindsight given how their real…

The Kennedys
Great 66 Points 2011

The Kennedys no longer occupy the white-hot center of American consciousness, as they did in the Sixties. The Kennedys, a high quality docudrama, reminds us why they held that position nearly thru the Nineties. Ultimate 1%ers, they looked, acted and misbehaved like royalty, yet became beloved…

Great 66 Points 2002

Confessions of a Dangerous Mind got gonged in ‘02. Turns out it’s a great movie, especially for those of us who view The Dating Game, The Newlywed Game and The Gong Show as pop-cultural touchstones.

The movie tells the twisted tale of their creator Chuck Barris’s life, as he’d like it kno…

Taxi Driver
Very Good 16 Points 1976

In my first viewing of Martin Scorsese’s Taxi Driver, I thought it was a very well made film and respected the fact that it was in fact one of the greatest films ever made. However, I simply didn’t like it as much as other people did. There was something missing that made Scorsese’s other films…

Killing Lincoln
Very Good 66 Points 2013

Admit it. You always wanted to know all the gory details about how John Wilkes Booth got into the Presidential box at Ford’s Theater, how he got away, got captured and got killed. Who hasn’t?

Killing Lincoln dramatizes that and more, providing an unflinching view of history that’s a valuab…

Wanted
Very Good 120 Points 2008

Action porn, a near constant tickle, and charismatic movie star performances make Wanted a new benchmark in bravura movie making. Casually amoral, this nihilistic flik would make Nietzsche blush. In short, Wanted is one hell of a guilty pleasure.

Killing Kennedy
Good 66 Points 2013

Killing Kennedy could easily be titled Kennedy’s Killer given its salutary focus on Lee Harvey Oswald. JFK we knew. It’s unfortunate then that Killing Kennedy spends time on the Leader of the Free World’s womanizing. Given 90 minutes of real runtime, bikinis take away from also understanding …

Parkland
Good 17 Points 2013

Can you really make an entire feature length film out of a single day’s events following JFK’s assasination? Well, yes – by following four different stories: Zapruder the famous film-maker, The Oswalds, the law, and the emergency room doctors and nurses. The result is a bit muddled, but keeps …

Valkyrie
Good 96 Points 2008

Valkyrie is an ultimate Nazi movie hamstrung by a lack of Germans: As victors, the Americans and British get to write the history of WWII, but they should at least have used Teutonic actors for this German Army story. Instead Allies play Krauts in Bryan Singer’s movie, complete with more Briti…
