Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind is one romance that counts as all of them. Reluctance becomes the ultimate fantasy.
M.C. Myers
Tim Burton's Sleepy Hollow is an underappreciated throwback horror gem. Chilly, cheesy, and sometimes completely beautiful.
The Happening Mark Wahlberg
M.C. Myers
The Happening was supposed to be Shyamalan's take on Invasion of the Body Snatchers. The only thing that got snatched was more of his own appeal.
M.C. Myers
A Fistful of Dollars is a samurai movie moved to the frontier. It loses nothing in the transition. And it gains the best staring in film history.
Primal Fear Richard Gere
M.C. Myers
Primal Fear reuses courtroom thriller tropes without revising them. But the cast makes them live again, at least as the ultimate TNT cable drama.
Paddington 2
M.C. Myers
Paddington 2 sparkles with manners and a belief in beauty. Everyone was opening the doors for each other on the way out of the theater.
Harry Potter
M.C. Myers
The first Harry Potter film is not an epic but an invitation. Dark as a forest. Nice as a librarian. Warm as a fireplace.
Catch Me If You Can DiCaprio and Walken
M.C. Myers
Frank Abagnale conned the world out of millions of dollars and himself out of a normal life. Catch Me If You Can cons us into loving him for it.
Hulk Mirror
M.C. Myers
Hulk is a Marvel film made from spirituality and angry power. Nothing it does wrong can stop its difference from being beautiful.
