Driving Miss Daisy (1989)
Morgan Freeman, Jessica Tandy, Dan Aykroyd, Patti LuPone and Esther Rolle star in this 1989 drama based on the play. This takes place in Georgia focusing on Jewish widow, Daisy Werthan (Tandy) who is very stubborn and Hoke Colburn, an African-American guy who becomes hired by Daisy's corporate son, Boolie (Aykroyd) to be her chauffeur. Things start a bit rough for Hoke, but in the course of 25 years, he and Daisy become good friends. LuPone (Witness) plays Boolie's wife, Florine and the late, Rolle (Good Times) plays Daisy's housekeeper, Idella. I watched this growing up and always liked it, Freeman and the late, Tandy are terrific in this, Aykroyd is also great as usual and Hans Zimmer's score is excellent. I recommend this great drama.
Wonder Woman (2017)
"Good Comic Book Film!"
Gal Gadot, Chris Pine, Connie Nielsen, Robin Wright and David Thewlis star in this 2017 action film based on the DC Comics. Gadot (Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice) plays Diana, an Amazon warrior princess. Pine (Star Trek) plays WWI Spy, Steve whom she saves from German soldiers and they embark on a journey to stop the war. Nielsen (The Devil's Advocate, Gladiator) plays Hippolyta, Diana's queen mother, Wright (The Princess Bride, Forrest Gump) plays warrior, Antiope and Thewlis (The Island of Dr. Moreau) plays Sir Patrick. This is a good comic book film, Gadot is great, there's beautiful visuals and a good score. I recommend this.
Lost After Dark (2015)
"Weak Slasher Flick!"
This 2015 horror features 8 teenage friends who decide to ditch their high school dance and have a party of their own. They borrow a school bus which runs out of gas and look for the nearest residence. They find an old house and become stalked by a cannibalistic killer lurking there. What can I say? This is a weak slasher flick that tries to pay tribute/homage to 70's & 80's films of the genre. It starts OK, but falls flat. The characters aren't really likable, some scenes are very dark and the deaths aren't that impressive. Robert Patrick (The Faculty) appears as an ex-army soldier turned vice principal. I'd probably watch this once only if you're a fan of slasher or Grindhouse films.
The Ward (2010)
"Ok Horror Flick!"
John Carpenter's 2010 horror film stars Amber Heard, Mamie Gummer, Danielle Panabaker, Laura-Leigh Claire, Lyndsy Fonseca, Mika Boorem and Jared Harris. This takes place in the 1960's focusing on young woman, Kristen (Heard) who is taken to a psychiatric hospital after setting a farmhouse ablaze. She meets Dr. Stringer (Harris) and patients, Emily (Gummer), Sarah (Panabaker), Zoey (Claire) and Iris (Fonseca). Kristen and the girls become hunted by a ghost of deceased patient, Alice (Boorem) and Kristen discovers the significance of her occurrence. This is OK, Heard is pretty good in it, there's gruesome make-up effects by Greg Nicotero & Howard Berger as usual and the film sort of resembles Carpenter's previous film, "In the Mouth of Madness." Carpenter or horror fans may want to view this at least once.
"Not Bad, But Predictable Slasher!"
This 2015 horror film stars Matthew Wise, Clea Alsip, Duane Cooper, Nicole Pacent, Jackie Byrne, Alyson Wells and Ralph Cashen. This tells of Grant (Wise) and his fiancée, Sarah (Alsip) who have a small wedding in the woods with friends, Carter (Cooper), Dani (Pacent), Beth (Byrne) and Trish (Wells). Soon, the celebration becomes a nightmare when a killer decides to crash it. Cashen plays caretaker, Walter and the film's director, Joe Bandelli appears as Jay, a registered, marriage minister. This isn't bad, but it's a predictable slasher with an OK cast. The film pays homage to "The Evil Dead," "Friday the 13th" and even "Phantasm" because Cashen resembles Angus Scrimm aka The Tall Man. If you're a fan of the genre, give this a try at least once.
"Good Guardians Follow-Up!"
Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Vin Diesel, Bradley Cooper, Michael Rooker, Sylvester Stallone and Kurt Russell star in this 2017 sci-fi sequel based on the Marvel Comics. This entry focuses more on Peter aka Star-Lord (Pratt) who learns of his parentage after meeting his long-lost father, Ego (Russell). Saldana returns as Gamora, Bautista as Drax, Diesel as Baby Groot, Cooper as Rocket, Rooker as Yondu and Stallone (Tango & Cash) appears briefly as Commander Ogord. This is a good follow-up with a great cast, amazing effects, good score and great songs from the 60's and 70's like the first film. Creator, Stan Lee also makes an amusing cameo as usual and I recommend this.
Class of 1999 (1990)
"Not Too Bad!"
This 1990 sci-fi film stars Bradley Gregg, Malcolm McDowell, Traci Lind, Pam Grier, John P. Ryan, Patrick Kilpatrick and Stacy Keach. This takes place in Seattle and Gregg (A Nightmare on Elm Street 3) plays teen punk, Cody who is trying to stay clean from drugs and such. Soon, 3 High School teachers, Bryles (Kilpatrick), Connors (Grier) and Hardin (Ryan) make Cody suspicious because they're methods of discipline are extreme and he discovers they're androids. McDowell (Rob Zombie's Halloween) plays Principal Langford, Lind (Fright Night II) plays his daughter Christie and Keach (Escape from L.A.) plays Dr. Forrest, the creator of the androids. This isn't too bad, the cast is decent and the film obviously copies "The Terminator." Grier and Keach were also in "Escape from L.A." together 6 years later. I'd give this a view at least once.
Cop Land (1997)
"Good Crime Drama!"
Sylvester Stallone, Harvey Keitel, Ray Liotta and Robert De Niro star in this 1997 crime drama. This takes place in Garrison, a small, New Jersey town where we meet Sheriff, Freddy Heflin (Stallone) who not only wants more in his life, but idolizes some of the cops in town and across the river in New York. Soon, he discovers that one of the cops, Ray Donlan (Keitel) and others are involved in mob connections and tries to bring order. Liotta (Goodfellas) plays cop, Gary Figgis and De Niro (Heat) plays Internal Affairs agent, Moe Tilden. Robert Patrick (The Faculty), Peter Berg (Shocker), Michael Rapaport (Higher Learning), Annabella Sciorra (The Hand That Rocks the Cradle) and Cathy Moriarty (Raging Bull) co-star. This is a good crime drama with a great cast and Howard Shore's score is excellent as usual. I recommend this.
"Everybody Says I'm Too Nice!"
This 2017 TV crime drama stars Penelope Ann Miller, Joe Anderson, Myk Watford and Daniel Roebuck based on a true story. Miller (Kindergarten Cop) plays the title role of Mrs. Mitchell, a nice, yet naive, prison shop teacher who gets herself in a fix when she's manipulated by 2 inmates, David Sweat (Anderson) and Richard Matt (Watford) who use her to escape. Roebuck (The Fugitive) plays Joyce's husband, Lyle. This is a pretty good film with a decent cast, especially Miller who does a great job. I recommend this.
Earth Girls Are Easy (1988)
"Bizarre 80's Sci-Fi Comedy!"
Geena Davis, Jeff Goldblum, Jim Carrey, Damon Wayans, Charles Rocket, Michael McKean and Julie Brown star in this 1989 sci-fi comedy. Davis (Beetlejuice) plays Valerie, a California manicurist who is in a troubled relationship. Soon, 3 colorful, furry aliens head to Earth and land in her swimming pool. She's scared at first, but befriends them and helps them blend in. Goldblum (The Fly) plays Mac, the leader of the trio who falls for her, Carrey (The Mask) plays Wiploc, Wayans (The Last Boy Scout) plays Zeebo, the late, Rocket (Dumb & Dumber) plays Valerie's cheating fiancée, Ted who is a doctor, McKean (This is Spinal Tap) plays hippie, Woody and Brown (Clueless) plays Valerie's friend, Candy. This is a bizarre film that pokes fun of and pays tribute to 50's sci-fi & B movies. It also provides some cheesy, yet amusing musical sequences provided by Miss Brown, Davis & Goldblum have good chemistry and had previously worked together in "The Fly" & "Transylvania 6-5000." Carrey and Wayans also worked together on TV's "In Living Color." I'd give this a view at least once.
