The Big Lebowski

 The Big Lebowski

After the darkly surreal, snow swept landscapes of the Minnesota, depicted in Fargo (1996), the Coen brothers wisely opted for a different locale and tone with bright, comedic vibe of The Big Lebowski (1998). The film was just too odd for mainstream audiences...

 Resident Evil: Deluxe Edition

While it’s certainly true that video games have come a long way since the heady days of Pac Man, with elaborate game worlds, large casts of characters and detailed plots, they don’t always translate well into a coherent movie. Paul W.S. Anderson,...

 50 First Dates

Once again Drew Barrymore and Adam Sandler are thrown together for a laugh-a-minute romantic comedy, and after the on-screen chemistry of ‘The Wedding Singer’, dollar signs must have been rolling and kerching noises must have been kerching-ing...

 Jersey Girl

Ever since Kevin Smith made Clerks (1994), he has been threatening to make a PG-rated, mainstream audience-friendly movie that his folks could actually go and see. Jersey Girl was his attempt. The question remained, would he soften the edges of his trademark...

 The Chronicles of Riddick: Dark Fury

“Dark Fury” tells the story of what happened after “Pitch Black”. The great thing about this is that they used anime as a medium, which is so much more versatile than standard film. Vin Diesel still voices the character of Riddick,...

 Vanishing Point

Vanishing Point (1971) is one of the great existential counter-culture films of the 1970s. Like the similar-minded films, most notably, Two-Lane Blacktop (1971) and Duel (1971), this car chase movie features an anti-hero protagonist who equates the open...

 Raquel Welch Collection

Raquel Welch had a modest feature film debut with a bit part in A House is Not A Home in 1964 but quickly shot to fame with the one-two punch of Fantastic Voyage and One Million Years B.C. in 1966. Her drop-dead gorgeous looks transformed her from a beauty...

 Out of Sight: Collector’s Edition

“It’s like seeing someone for the first time. You can be passing on the street and you look at each other and for a few seconds there’s this kind of recognition. Like you both know something, and the next moment the person’s gone....

 The Village

There are those out there that consider M. Night Shyamalan to be this generation’s Hitchcock (albeit with a thirst for horror), and there are those who consider him a hack who relies on outlandish plot twists. If you didn’t like The Sixth... 

Videodrome

 Videodrome

Videodrome (1983) is a rare horror film that is as smart and thought-provoking as it is scary and gory. Canadian filmmaker David Cronenberg was fresh from the success of Scanners (1981) and this film would continue his fascination with blurring the boundaries...
