Right you are, young Jedi! One of my top-10 favorite films of all time. I still can't believe this undervalued jewel was given a paltry limited release back in the day. It's not for everyone, but those who it responds to can't say enough great things about it.

No, it's Chevy Chase. But some people would give you credit for that.

That's from Spies Like Us.

Yep! And here's a clip from that funny test-cheating scene:

Pay attention the actor on the right; and also to the one standing up in the background, for he was in the director's hit comedy 4 years prior.

Ok, that's Judd Nelson holding a vibrator in a courtroom in Bob Clark's From the Hip.

Next...

For those still participating, that's Willem Dafoe and Johnny Depp in John Waters' career-best movie, Cry-Baby.

Here's one from a film that managed to make my top-10 list; and it was directed by one of my favorites who's never gotten the recognition he deserves.

OK, a new one. And it was my second-favorite film of its year -- and it was also Gene Siskel's #2 film of that year, too. (And, no, don't cheat by looking Siskel's top-10 lists up...)

Allllllllright, you hopeless suckwads -- that's Jason Patric and Rachel Ward in James Foley's extraordinary After Dark, My Sweet. No actor gave a better performance in 1990 than Patric.

Yep.

And one of my favorite actors played a classic villain in this film:

It's not a Dirty Harry film, is it?

Dude, not even cop-salary Harry would wear crappy clothes like that!

Well, that's what I was thinking. Wink

Look at the expression on the cops' faces in the background, and this'll give an indication of the genre.

No idea what the film is, but just realised the irony of the sign behind Clint. Very Happy

It got mostly negative reviews back in the day, but I enjoyed a fair amount of it, with Eastwood doing a couple of good Fletch-like impersonations.

Here's one from one of the best thrillers of the '80s:

OK, I know that's Spader and the girl is also very familiar.

Score one for Erik! Yep -- a dandy serial-killer thriller that Siskel and Ebert gave some very flattering words to. I think the studio marketed the thing all wrong, like it was a cheap slasher flick or something.

Now, this next one is interesting because it's, to my mind, the only movie to showcase a major star wearing a pink Members Only jacket!



Ooooooookay, another photo from it:

Well, I guess you people aren't die-hard Burt Reynolds fans like myself -- it's from his mediocre 1985 Stick.
