Godzilla (1954)

By now most Godzilla fans realize that Raymond Burr was never part of the plan. In 1954 Ishiro Honda (sometimes incorrectly credited as "Inoshiro") directed a 98-minute film about a monster that took Japanese fear and anger over the Hiroshima and Nagasaki bombings and put it into visual form. Far from his image as a "B" movie hack, Honda had previously worked as an assistant director to Akira Kurosawa and Godzilla was taken seriously. read more...

Aliens (1986)

Everything a sequel should be, James Cameron's slam-bang Aliens went in an entirely different direction from Ridley Scott's moody 1979 chamber piece, Alien, with an amazingly simple idea: more aliens. read more...

Alien: Resurrection (1997)

French director Jean-Pierre Jeunet brought his dark, cartoonish brand of kinetic filmmaking to the fourth movie in the Alien series. This movie resurrects Ripley (Sigourney Weaver) 200 years after the previous film and teams her up with a new band of misfits (Winona Ryder and Ron Perlman among them) against the alien. Alien Resurrection (1997) was even more despised than Alien 3, but again, it has some incredible moments and a unique flow; it's definitely of a piece with the others. Joss Whedon provided the lively screenplay. Dan Hedaya and Brad Dourif co-star. A slightly longer cut was assembled for a 2003 DVD release. read more...

World War Z (2013)

The bestselling novel by Max Brooks (Mel Brooks' son) started a bidding war right out of the gate, and now World War Z has ended up as a sloppy, dull summer blockbuster. Director Marc Forster (Quantum of Solace, Machine Gun Preacher) has never shown much personality or skill when it comes to big movies; his action sequences are shaky and choppy and his suspense sequences are clunky rather than tense. The entire movie has a grim, serious demeanor that sucks all the potential fun out of it. read more...

Terminator 2: Judgment Day (1991)

If it's not giving away too much, the machines in The Terminator failed, and so they try again several years later in Terminator 2: Judgment Day (1991). Now Sarah's son John (Edward Furlong) is ten years old. The terminator (Arnold Schwarzenegger) appears again, but this time he's on our side, having been captured and re-programmed by the humans. The bad guy is an even deadlier thing, a shape-shifter called the T-1000 (played by Robert Patrick), and made of a kind of malleable liquid metal. Cameron directs with a huge amount of style and personality, effortlessly jumping from the $6.4 million original to the $88 million sequel. It's superbly written with plenty of great ideas and clever twists. Cameron later released a longer, 154-minute cut on video. read more...
