    When I was younger, I used to watch a VHS tape of this every summer a lot. I’m surprised the tape never wore out. It was waiting for me to hit the opening score that then goes into Highway to the Danger Zone. Even after all these years, it’s still a great film and made Cruise a star. If the sequel is as good as they say, I might have a new ritual as the adult I am. It looks pretty rad.

    Riley is back with his weird sense of humor and strong ideas to make a great feature for Karen to show off her dual acting chops. It’s kind of depressing but it has the right amount of comedy to balance out the bleakness. It explores the ideas of what does a person love about life and sometimes fighting for your life can get you out of a funk. You gotta want it. I missed this in the very limited run it had in theaters.

    A misleading film title. They never even looked for the guy.

    A intriguing film about obsession that reminds me in someways of Zero Dark Thirty in how the main character kind of loses their place in live because they are so focused on it. Fincher's amazing camera work steals the show. I am amazed that this film didn't get nominated for an Oscar.
