MOVIE REVIEWS
 

The Natural (1984)

Can a film still be a masterpiece while remaining intrinsically flawed? If so, "The Natural" comes as close as it gets.

Golden Boy (1939)

William Holden's screen debut has a predictably mushy romantic plot, but the vivid characters, emotive acting and smart dialogue carry the day.

The Last Days of Patton (1986)

The great life of Gen. George S. Patton deserved a final chapter on film, but had to settle for this made-for-TV version.

Cabaret (1972)

"Cabaret" is many things, not the least of which is the answer to a question sure to stump friends on trivia night.

Action in the North Atlantic (1943)

"Action in the North Atlantic" is a seemingly run-of-the-mill bit of WWII wartime propaganda, set apart by its grim tone and outstanding naval action.

Major League (1989)

Sort of the antithesis of "Bull Durham," "Major League" is a jock's jock movie featuring distinctive characters, straightforward jokes and James Gammon.

Laura (1944)

The 1944 film noir is a movie with a distinctly pessimistic view of humanity that is photographed with an aching, shadowy beauty.

The Hand (1981)

Oliver Stone's second feature film is a silly, scary, skeevy horror flick that touches a lot of erogenous zones for maturing minds.
