LATEST REVIEWS
STRIKING DISTANCE
"Slightly Neglected Action Fare"
3 stars
Jack Sommersby says... "Was pretty much a box-office dud back in its day, but I think a retrospect will give it the respect it kinda deserves." (more)
BILL & TED FACE THE MUSIC
"They're baaaack."
4 stars
Rob Gonsalves says... "Before watching 'Bill & Ted Face the Music,' I was assured I didn’t have to rewatch 'Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure' (1989) and 'Bill & Ted’s Bogus Journey' (1991) — it’s true, you don’t — which was good, because I didn’t especially feel like rewatching them. (I last saw them both in ’91.) Having now seen the third installment, I do feel like going back and revisiting the younger Bill (Alex Winter) and Ted (Keanu Reeves)." (more)
I'M THINKING OF ENDING THINGS
"Kaufman does it again."
5 stars
Rob Gonsalves says... "One question we’re left with by Charlie Kaufman’s "I’m Thinking of Ending Things": did Kaufman mean to cast two actors with almost the same first name except the I, or was that just a freakishly apropos accident?" (more)
RETURN OF THE LIVING DEAD
"An all-timer, now an old-timer."
5 stars
Rob Gonsalves says... "It doesn’t feel right, somehow, for a punk, gory, young and snarky thing like "The Return of the Living Dead" to be 35 years old. But here we are (it was released August 16, 1985)." (more)
SHE DIES TOMORROW
"Okay, but it demands patience."
3 stars
Rob Gonsalves says... "A single concept — that you are going to die tomorrow — lodges like a tick in the psyche of whoever hears it. Whoever hears it then passes it to more people, so it spreads like a lethal virus." (more)
MORNING AFTER, THE
"A Fine Character-Driven Mystery"
4 stars
Jack Sommersby says... "A solid Christmas Day release back in the day that still holds up." (more)
I WEIRDO
"Everything changes."
4 stars
Jay Seaver says... "SCREENED VIA THE 2020 NEW YORK ASIAN FILM FESTIVAL: The screwy capitalization/punctuation of "I WeirDO" feels like it's something that should get under the skin of its main characters, both dealing with obsessive-compulsive disorder, and I wonder if the Chinese title ("Guai Tai") gets that across. I kind of hope not; this is a pretty good movie despite filmmaker Liao Ming-Yi's tendency to seemingly go for the gimmick on both ends, and that shouldn't be overwhelmed by the way it tries to get cute." (more)
RUSH (1991)
"Compelling Subject Matter Given Its Due"
4 stars
Jack Sommersby says... "No, it's not a "Drugstore Cowboy" but it still gets a lot right." (more)
MILES FROM HOME
"An Interesting Road Picture with Commendable Acting"
4 stars
Jack Sommersby says... "Even though starring Richard Gere it was mostly released to art-house theaters, resulting in a paltry box-office take. A real shame." (more)
GROSS ANATOMY
"'The Paper Chase' Gone Medical School"
4 stars
Jack Sommersby says... "Should have done better box office but audiences weren't keen on it at the time." (more)
