    The Pacifier

    ★★★★

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Despite there being an (off screen) death near the movie's beginning, this is perfect family fare. Vin Diesel is called upon to play bodyguard for the kids of the man he failed to save at the film's beginning. What follows is kind of a "Kindergarten Cop" type of movie, except Diesel interacts with the kids and teaches them self defense and self respect, etc. It's nothing to tax your brain, just pure fun with quite a few laughs. My favorite…

    Natalie Wood: What Remains Behind

    ★★★½

    Fine documentary of the famous, beautiful, actress, hosted by her daughter, actress Natasha Gregson Wagner, who is a beauty in her own right.

An ambitious scientist, Henry Frankenstein (Colin Clive), along with his hunchback assistant Fritz (Dwight Frye) rob from graves, steal body parts, and everything imaginable until they have stitched together the huge body of a "human" that Frankenstein intends to bring to life. This…

    Big Trouble in Little China

    ★★★★★

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Here it is. After seeing this a zillion times, I need to review this gem. It's only one of the very best movies EVER! Kurt Russell is the swaggering blowhard, bumbling but heroic truck driver, Jack Burton, who gives out advice from the CB in his semi-truck The Pork Chop Express, and that's between adventures. The adventure we see takes place in, of course, Little China in San Francisco, where Jack helps his best friend Wang Chi (Dennis Dun) try…
