  • A Cure for Wellness

    A Cure for Wellness

    ★★★★

    Thematically derivative but impeccably designed in just about every other way; at nearly 150 minutes, I was surprised that I never became bored - I soaked up Wellness' atmosphere and cinematography like a sponge.

    It's another in a long line of movies that end, and then just keep going and become a totally different kind of movie all of a sudden, but in this case that other movie took the film's gothic-horror to 110% and I have to give it…

  • Fletch

    Fletch

    ★★★★★

    Michael Ritchie's Fletch is an endlessly re-watchable -- and quotable -- comedy/action flick with a solid plot adapted from the book of the same name. The kind of movie that I can watch any day of the year (and in any mood) and I'll love it no matter what.

  • Prometheus

    Prometheus

    ★★★★½

    Haters, leave; the nit-picks that have pierced through popular-culture on this one are really unfounded (not to mention small fries compared to everything that works here.)

    I say this as someone who left the theater and complained about the space flute and was generally very disappointed. I was wrong, time has been kind and I am happy I finally sat down for another go-'round.
