8mm-inside

8mm (1999)

This criminally underrated film is the kind of thriller Hitchcock would have made if he were around in the '90s.
Around the World in 80 Days - inside

Around the World in 80 Days (1956)

Unfairly maligned because of its Best Picture Oscar win, "Around the World in 80 Days" is enjoyable spectacle for its own sake.

The Eiger Sanction - inside

The Eiger Sanction (1975)

I'm just glad Clint Eastwood survived the early tawdry portion of his directing career -- epitomized by the awful spy thriller "The Eiger Sanction."
Zombi 2 - inside

Zombi 2 (1979)

Lucio Fulci's unintentionally hilarious zombie flick shows why he was known as the international "King of Gore."

Who Framed Roger Rabbit - inside

Who Framed Roger Rabbit? (1988)

While certainly entertaining, "Who Framed Roger Rabbit?" seems now less a groundbreaking film and more a minor way station on the way to grander animated ambitions.
Von Richthofen and Brown - inside

Von Richthofen and Brown (1971)

Roger Corman's penultimate film as a director is one of his most ambitious, a fictional take on the Red Baron and the unheralded pilot who killed him (maybe).

Hombre - inside

Hombre (1967)

This revisionist Western is notable for its stern, uncaring anti-hero played by Paul Newman and a more compassionate view of American Indians.
Hell's Angels - inside

Hell’s Angels (1930)

An early progenitor of the big-budget action spectacular, "Hell's Angels" is astonishing during the flying combat scenes and embarrassing on the ground.
