    Liberal Arts 2012

    ★★★½ Added

    Written, directed and starring Josh Radnor, the film is about a college administrations officer who goes back to his alma mater and falls for a 19 year old student. Completely believable due to the incredibly strong performances (including a fantastic Zac Efron - whodathunkit?). What could have been really skeevy is given a lot of heart due to the smart and sympathetic screenplay.

    Screaming in High Heels: The Rise & Fall of the Scream Queen Era 2011

    ★★★ Added

    As a young man, I watched a ton of films starring Michelle Bauer, Brinke Stevens and Linnea Quigley. This documentary recalls the heyday of those films that they were in, and shows us how they became "stars." As much of a look at the rise and fall of the VHS era as it is a look at these three actresses, it probably works best if you have some sort of knowledge about any of their films.

  • Goldfinger

    Goldfinger 1964

    ★★★★ Added 1

    Goldfinger introduces us to the bad guy's unbeatable henchman until he meets Bond. Nonstop action and a great finale make this one worth watching.

  • Dudes

    Dudes 1987

    ★★★ Added

    Dudes is a vastly underrated movie about three punked-out kids who go to California. On the way, one of them is killed by those rednecks in the mountains. When the other two go for revenge, it's a roller coaster ride from comedy to violence.
