I've said before that All That Heaven Allows one of the best movies with the worst scripts. Imitation Of Life is better, but that one cheats by using a script they didn't find in the trash behind a beauty salon.
Has anyone ever reviewed that movie without mentioning the deer?
Jekyll and Hyde is great, did somebody recommend that one? It's really underdiscussed considering all the love '30s horror gets, and they actually pronounce Jekyll's name correctly! The Spencer Tracy version is a direct remake but it's lame, post-code and with weaker everything.
I liked Fanny and Alexander but I haven't seen it in so long that I'm not ready to argue about it.
Those Rambo movies would be more fun if they had a better director. The action scenes seem to be trying harder for iconography than kinetic energy.
I saw The One in the theater. My friend and I were up for some entertaining trash and that's what we got. Strangely it has some ideas in common with Joe Haldeman's classic science fantasy novella The Hemingway Hoax, but that's probably a coincidence.
Surprisingly I've never seen The Quick and the Dead.
The Fog is not near Carpenter's best but it's enjoyable.
I lol'd at this:
The Amityville Curse is actually set in the house, but the plot revolves around a confessional in the basement that used to belong to a priest who was murdered in it, and so the house is haunted again (?)
I've never seen any of these movies but kinda want to see the original even if it is bad.
