Remember to think in Russian, because Firefox is the Greatest Movie EVER!

Review in a Nutshell: Despite a few odd directorial flourishes, Firefox is an entertaining hybrid of Cold war espionage and high-tech aviation. Unfortunately, Clint Eastwood’s shell-shocked protagonist isn’t as engaging as the other supporting characters.

Review in a Nutshell: An R-rated adventure-comedy that vacillates between cartoonish violence and realistic brutality, Hudson Hawk is a movie that feels like a throwback to earlier heist films on one hand, yet was also seems at least ten years ahead of its time with its tale of Da Vinci conspiracy, mobsters, singing cat-burglars, and frothy Italian coffee drinks.

Fuel up the Mach 5, because Speed Racer is the Greatest Movie EVER!

Review in a Nutshell: Critically savaged and commercially unsuccessful, Speed Racer is a visually imaginative family film directed by the Wachowskis. Some people will not be able to enjoy the film’s super-saturated color palette and kinetic editing, but upon re-watching it, I discovered a film with a surprisingly resonant emotional core.

Don’t let the bad guys get away with it, because Remo Williams: The Adventure Begins is the Greatest Movie EVER!

Click on the movie poster or the title above to download our review of the film, featuring Sean ‘Hollywood’ Hunting.

Review in a Nutshell: Based off of a long-running series of ‘men’s adventure’ novels, Remo Williams tries to emulate the James Bond films and to find a happy middle ground between action-movie seriousness and tongue-in-cheek camp. It does not ultimately succeed, but the film inspires some interesting conversation.

Clint Eastwood, you are not Sean Connery.

Strap in your caribiners, because The Eiger Sanction is the Greatest Movie EVER!

Click on the movie poster or the title above to download our review of the film, featuring Sean “Hollywood” Hunting.

Review in a Nutshell: A spy movie based off of a deadly serious reading of a satirical novel by Trevanian, The Eiger Sanction captures the zeitgeist of the Seventies in a way that few other films do, not that this is always a good thing. The mountain-climbing scenes in the third act are breath-taking.
