    The Beyond is a masterpiece of surreal, nightmarish horror and cruelty.

    The Princess Bride

    ★★★★★

    What even need to be said about The Princess Bride? It's one of my favorite films of all time, and it's a true classic. I've never stopped loving it. and I never will. Such a thing would be inconcievable!

    ★★★★

    Speed holds up really well, and it's right up there with Con-Air and The Rock as one of my favorite American action-thrillers of the 90s. The best thing this film has going for it is the breakneck pacing, and the great casting choices, including a star-making role for Sandra Bullock, and the inspired and insane casting of Dennis Hopper as the mad bomber.

    Slaughter Hotel

    ★★★

    It's almost hard for me to believe that the same man who directed The Italian Connection and Milano Calibro 9 directed this sleazy giallo. It has none of the energy or political subtext of Di Leo's poliziotteschi films. What it does have, is a sleepy Klaus Kinski acting creepy with a really bad haircut, and lots of naked Italian ladies voyeuristically oogled by Di Leo's camera to the point where you'll think you were watching a Jess Franco movie. Not that I'm complaining.
