I'm convinced that the difficulty with the later Star Wars films lies solely in the script. Lawrence Kasdan (and the late Leigh Brackett) simply have a better sense of plotting, character interaction, ...

I love Kevin Costner's Robin Hood. I just can't get enough of it.

The studios often talk about "hard R" and "soft R." That may be a helpful distinction if they ever tried to insert an A rating.

On the other hand, PG-13 was supposed to be the soft R, and that's had ...

I totally agree with your assessment, Rob. But do you think Ebert's proposed A rating, to fall between R and NC-17, could work to get the system back on track, to make it more sensible? It seems to ...

I think the problem runs deeper than just the MPAA (though their system is clearly broken, so they're not off the hook). As a society, I don't believe we're able to accept the notion that some materia ...

Awesome pic. Keaton was a genius director, but many say he could have just as easily been a professional third baseman. He loved the game so much he often halted movie productions in the middle of t ...

Yeah, I don't have much to say about the Oscars. I enjoyed the show (well, about half the time at least), but no big surprises or memorable moments this year. I still need to catch The Fog of War whil ...

Rob, I've heard all the moral arguments opposing Life Is Beautiful, but I'd still love to hear your take on it.

Sorry for the delay, I was marshalling my bile. :)

My main argument is less against ma ...

Greatest horror movie ever made.

It's John Carpenter's The Thing and I'll have words with anyone who says otherwise. Very Happy

Just re-read Rob's review of Monster. Capital, old man, I think you hit the nail on the head. I do, however, slightly disagree with your assessment that "Theron brings a predatory intensity to Ailee ...

Does Buckaroo Banzai count as a comedy? Genres get so delightfully blurry on the edges...

Some great choices so far (with the exception of Life Is Beautiful, which I find a work of purest blackest ev ...
