    Double Feature, Movie A, with 1998's Overnight Delivery

    The creative decisions that fuel the production of movies like this would be entirely different if the people who made them had known they were going to be so historically ignored. This is 23 years old and I'm betting you've never seen it.

    Among the reasons why you might not have seen this, the would-be romance is about two people so lost they can't figure out how to talk to one other.…

    Double Feature, Movie B, with 1997's Excess Baggage

    Reese Witherspoon in this movie is wonderful, even her character Ivy is very likable. So I really ponder what she's doing here in this utmost useless of post-frat sex-comedies, with the impossible to feel sorry for lovesick doormat in yet another jilted Perfect Boyfriend narrative. Which- holy fuck, how were there so many of them and not a single one possessing the self-awareness to see that these guys are scum? I could…

    This review was written in 2011, I believe:

Friday the 13th had great pieces but really didn't come together to be the best it could be (though it's still a personal favorite and always will be).

    Jurassic Park

    ★★★★

    #63 in my 99 90's Movies month.

    Excitement and danger come first, characters come second. Which is totally okay in Spielbergia. Though those kids are incredibly annoying at times. ("Vegiesaurus! Meatasaurus!" ...Really, movie?) And some of the drama is pretty seriously forced down your throat (Laura Dern before eating the ice cream, Attenborough's super-scream on the telephone, Jeff Goldblum... in general, that kid and the tree climbing, and the fence jumping). But it is exciting and it never did skimp on the danger, did it? Holds up surprisingly well. I probably never enjoyed it this much.
