    ★★★

    Better than the average kid's flick, if only because it exhibits some self-awareness.

    ★★★★

    One of the few films that accurately depicts the insanely complex emotional landscape of the teenager.

    ★★

    My favorite interpretation of this film is the one where Billy Crystal actually drowns at the beginning, and the rest is the product of his brain slowly dying of oxygen deprivation. Fight me if you disagree.

    Jarhead: Law of Return

    Remember Jarhead? That smarter-than-average depiction of Marine life, starring Jake Gyllenhaal? I have no idea how this happened, but it somehow metamorphosed into a demented, jingoistic series of direct-to-video shovelware.

    This particular incarnation takes the form of lots and lots of macho dick jokes, vaguely racist depictions of the Arab world, and just a hint of BENGHAZI BENGHAZI BENGHAZI-distrust of 'the system', whatever that means.
