    ★★

    This movie is unfunny and poorly directed. Bill Murray’s smug, chauvinistic performance belongs in another film. Dan Aykroyd is typically unwatchable, and Harold Ramis is given little to do, to say nothing of Ernie Hudson. Only Sigourney Weaver and Rick Moranis emerge unscathed.

    Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome

    I figured out how to ruin Mad Max: you put kids in it. This movie has fleeting—ever-so-fleeting—moments during which it seems like George Miller actually made the movie he wanted, but mostly it feels like Steven Spielberg’s “Hook” with Max Rockatansky wandering around looking out of place.

    ★★★★½

    Ends a bit on the nose, but filled with terrifying, shocking imagery. Benjamin Christensen is a clear influence on other Danish filmmakers, especially his contemporary Carl Theodor Dreyer (THE PASSION OF JOAN OF ARC), and particularly Lars Von Trier, whose ANTICHRIST draws on a lot of the ideas about the subjugation of women that Christensen confronts in this film.

    This movie is terrific.
