I can't really explain why I love the 1988 “Phantasm II” (written and directed by Don Coscarelli, whose recent “John Dies at the End” is so far this year's most entertaining film). It runs counter to every analytical notion I...
You don't have to approve of Elia Kazan's testimony before HUAC to recognize his 1954 “On the Waterfront” as a brilliant film, whose influence changed the face of American movies. Somehow both lyrical and hard-edged at the same time, this tale...
David Lean's 1962 “Lawrence of Arabia” is one of the most universally praised films ever made, and deservedly so. Nominated for 10 Oscars, winner of seven (including Best Picture), it has only grown better with time. The few aspects that might...
For whatever reason, Martin McDonagh's “Seven Psychopaths” — one of the best films of last year — didn't find its audience. The poster was both blah and misleading, and it probably didn't help that this gun-rich, blood-soaked...
There are literally dozens of movies about the Titanic; this 1953 Hollywood version is one of the three best-known (the other two being Roy Ward Baker's “A Night to Remember” and James Cameron's modest little 1997 chamber drama). Like Cameron,...
"Dredd," also known under certain circumstances as "Dredd 3D," is one of several films last year that seemed "better than they had any right to be." This semi-compliment most frequently applies to movies — particularly remakes, gratuitous sequels,...
This odd (but pleasantly low-priced) new release might be called "Jackie Chan's Most Uncharacteristic Hits." Both showcase Jackie in almost totally non-comic contexts. By definition then, these are not in the league of the "Police Story," "Project A" or...
When “The Last Stand,” Arnold Schwarzenegger's comeback film, is released on Jan. 18, Kim Jee-woon (“A Tale of Two Sisters,” “The Good, the Bad, the Weird”) will become the first Korean director to break into Hollywood....
Some 40 years before Matt Damon played the title character in Anthony Minghella's “The Talented Mr. Ripley,” Alain Delon played the same role in Rene Clement's 1960 “Purple Noon,” adapted from the same novel by Patricia Highsmith...
Thanks to the vagaries of distribution, Alfred Hitchcock's black-and-white 1934 “The Man Who Knew Too Much” has arrived on an affordable Blu-ray earlier than the director's better-known Technicolor 1956 remake, which is available only as...
If you're offended by naughty language, you don't want to watch “Ted.” Seth MacFarlane's first feature is off-color throughout; it also made me laugh as much as any other film this year. MacFarlane (“Family Guy,” “American...
If you saw "The Dark Knight Rises" in the theater, you already know whether (like me) you are a fan of the third installment of Christopher Nolan's Batman trilogy. Even if you didn't see it, you probably have an inkling of whether you'll want to buy it on...
