    The Tuskegee Airmen

    ★★★½

    Good performances from a good cast.  You can sometimes feel the budgetary limitations of having been a made for TV movie in the mid 90s, but everyone involved seems to understand the importance of the story they are telling.

  • X-Men: First Class

    X-Men: First Class

    ★★★★½

    It's ridiculous how much better X-MEN: FIRST CLASS is than the rest of the X-Men team films to date. It embraces the source material, lets the superheroes have costumes (actual costumes, not generic black leather), and while there's certainly a fair share of "will the world accept us?" it also lets the characters, you know, enjoy being superheroes.

    The team assembled in this one is despite stated idealogical differences more fun and cohesive than in any of the other team…

    ★★★★★

    It gets better every time I watch it.

    George Miller was robbed at the Oscars. So was Junkie XL for that matter.

    Amadeus

    ★★★★★

    Every time I watch this film I wonder how hard it must have been to choose between Tom Hulce and F. Murray Abraham for best actor.

    Then I wonder how Jeffery Jones didn't win every award he could for his performance a the emperor.
