Point Break (1991)

Kathryn Bigelow's terrific Point Break involves a young FBI agent (Keanu Reeves) who goes undercover as a surfer to catch "The Presidents," a band of bank robbers that dresses up as Reagan, Carter, LBJ, and Nixon. But to complicate things, he becomes involved with the spirituality of surfing, as preached by the gang's leader (Patrick Swayze). Director Bigelow is one of America's greatest unsung talents. She has a great eye not only for action, but also for the psychological push and pull behind the action. The key moment of the film comes when Reeves jumps out of a plane without a parachute as his last chance to catch the bad guy. The entire movie is beautifully shot; even the quiet beach scenes between Reeves and his love interest Lori Petty sparkle. I always expected that Bigelow's Near Dark would become her cult classic, but instead, this one did. Now it enjoys regular midnight performances with many devoted fans. Fox's original 2001 DVD release came with only a trailer and a short "making-of" documentary. In 2006, however, Fox released a new "special edition" with lots more extra stuff for fans. In 2011, a Blu-Ray edition was released. read more...

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire (2013)

It's not enough for Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) to have simply survived her first Hunger Games. She also has to be the "chosen one," and lead a revolution against the evil and corrupt President Snow (Donald Sutherland) and his followers. Too bad that doesn't actually happen in The Hunger Games: Catching Fire. That event will be saved for the sequel(s) to come. What happens here instead seems to be just a stopover, or a holding pattern. This movie cooks up a ridiculous excuse to get Katniss and her pals to play the game again, even though they were supposed to be finished. read more...

The Hunger Games (2012)

It begins in the future, in the 74th year of the Hunger Games, which were invented as a way to control the masses after an unsuccessful uprising. Two "tributes," a boy and a girl, are chosen from each of 12 districts. After some preparation, the 24 competitors are sent to the battlefield, where only one will emerge alive. The entire thing is broadcast and commented upon in hideous reality TV-style. read more...

Baby Driver (2017)

It's no wonder that Edgar Wright and Quentin Tarantino are friends. They have something in common that the many Tarantino wannabes do not; they share a powerful enthusiasm for film. They genuinely love the ways that good films can feel and move and sound, and that excitement is captured and re-broadcasted to the audience. It's a gift that few have. read more...

Jupiter Ascending (2015)

The list of what went wrong with Jupiter Ascending is a fairly long one, so let's get started. First, the story is both unnecessarily convoluted and terribly uninteresting. read more...
