The Phantom (1996)
"Not Bad Action/Adventure!"
Billy Zane, Kristy Swanson, Catherine Zeta-Jones and Treat Williams star in this 1996 action/adventure based on the comic book. This takes place in 1939 and Zane (Titanic) plays Kit Walker, a mild-mannered man who masquerades as hero, The Phantom aka "The Ghost who Walks" following in his ancestors footsteps. He makes his way from the Bengala jungle to New York City where he tries to stop corrupt businessman, Xander Drax (Williams) from finding 3 powerful skulls that will make him unstoppable. Swanson (Buffy The Vampire Slayer) plays Diana Palmer, Kit's college friend & love-interest and Jones (The Haunting) plays Sala, a woman who works for Drax, but eventually becomes an ally to Kit and Diana. James Remar, Patrick McGoohan, David Proval and Casey Siemaszko also appear. This isn't bad, Zane is OK as the lead and the film sort of has an Indiana Jones vibe to it. I still recommend this.
Hot Shots! Part Deux (1993)
"Good Spoof Sequel!"
Charlie Sheen, Valeria Golino, Lloyd Bridges, Brenda Bakke, Rowan Atkinson, Miguel Ferrer and Richard Crenna star in this 1993 comedy sequel. This installment obviously spoofs "Rambo" and pokes fun at other films like "Terminator 2," "Star Wars" and "Basic Instinct." Sheen returns as navy pilot, Topper who is sent on a mission to rescue war soldiers captured in Iraq. Golino also returns as Ramada as well as the late, Bridges as former Admiral, Tug Benson who is now a U.S. President. Bakke (Tales from the Crypt: Demon Knight) plays CIA operative, Michelle who gets involved with Topper, Atkinson (Mr. Bean) plays Ramada's ex-husband, Dexter who is one of the captured soldiers, Ferrer (Robocop) plays ex-soldier, Harbinger and the late, Crenna (First Blood) plays Colonel, Walters who recruits Topper for his mission, but also gets captured after attempting to rescue the soldiers. This is a good sequel, the cast is great and the scenes with Saddam Hussein (Jerry Haleva) are hilarious. I recommend this.
Hot Shots! (1991)
"Good Comedy Spoof!"
Charlie Sheen, Valeria Golino, Cary Elwes, Jon Cryer and Lloyd Bridges star in this 1991 comedy. This is obviously a spoof of "Top Gun," but also pokes fun at other classic films like "Dances with Wolves," "Gone With The Wind" and "Superman." Sheen (Wall Street) plays Topper, a navy pilot who has issues mainly dealing with his father's death. Soon, he's recruited to lead a mission to destroy a nuclear plant with other fighter pilots and they eventually learn that someone's sabotaging the planes. Golino (Rain Man) plays Ramada, a psychiatrist whom he gets help and finds romance with, Elwes (The Princess Bride) plays Kent, a pilot and Ramada's ex-boyfriend who doesn't get along with Topper, Cryer (Two and a Half Men) plays pilot, Washout who has walleye vision and the late, Bridges (Airplane) plays senile Admiral, Tug Benson. This is a good comedy spoof with a good cast and if you like "Airplane" and "The Naked Gun" films, I recommend this.
"Not Great, But Not Bad Creature Feature!"
Jennifer Lopez, Ice Cube, Jon Voight, Jonathan Hyde and Eric Stoltz star in this 1997 thriller. Lopez (Selena) plays Terri, a filmmaker who tries to make a documentary depicting the Amazon river and an ancient tribe that resides there. Soon, she and her crew find a mysterious man, Serone (Voight) who is stranded and help him. They discover he's a snake hunter who tries using them as bait to catch a giant, deadly snake that stalks them. Cube plays Terri's friend, Danny, Hyde (Richie Rich) plays professor, Westridge and Stoltz (Pulp Fiction) plays professor, Cale. This isn't great, but not bad, the cast is OK and the Anaconda is creepy. This is one of many creature features that followed in the footsteps of "Jaws" and I recommend it if you enjoy killer things in the water.
Under Siege (1992)
"Watch Out For The Cook!"
Steven Seagal, Tommy Lee Jones, Gary Busey and Erika Eleniak star in this 1992 action film. Seagal (Hard to Kill) plays Navy SEAL turned cook, Casey Ryback who finds himself facing a group of terrorists aboard a Navy battleship. Casey uses his special skills to fight them and save the hostages. Jones (The Fugitive) plays Bill Stranix, an ex-CIA operative who takes over the ship seeking revenge with help from Navy Commander, Krill (Busey) and Eleniak (Tales from the Crypt: Bordello of Blood) plays exotic dancer, Jordan who helps Casey. This isn't a bad action flick, Seagal is good in it and Jones & Busey are great villains as usual. I recommend this.
"Not Bad Action Sequel!"
Steven Seagal, Eric Bogosian, katherine Heigl and Everett McGill star in this 1995 action sequel. Seagal returns as Navy SEAL & Cook, Casey Ryback who finds himself in another crisis when a group of terrorists seize a train that he and his teenage niece, Sarah (Heigl) are aboard. He must once again use his special skills to thwart them and save the hostages. Bogosian (Law & Order) plays mad computer genius, Travis Dane who leads the terrorists and intends on using a military satellite to get money and McGill (Silver Bullet) plays Penn, his associate. This isn't a bad sequel, Seagal is good in it and Bogosian & McGill are great bad guys. I recommend this.
"Not Bad Comedy-Drama!"
Michael Keaton, Emma Stone, Edward Norton, Andrea Riseborough and Naomi Watts star in this 2014 comedy-drama. This story takes place in New York and Keaton (Batman) plays Riggan, a washed-up actor who hasn't made a big hit in a while. Twenty years prior, he made a popular superhero film, Birdman which not only spawned 2 sequels, but made a powerful effect on his personal life. He tries making a comeback with Broadway play, "What To Talk About When We Talk About Love" that may resurrect or end his career. He also tries reconnecting with his daughter, Sam (Stone). Norton (Fight Club) plays actor, Mike, Riseborough (Oblivion) plays actress, Laura and Watts (King Kong) plays actress, Lesley. This isn't bad, Keaton & the cast are good in it and the film sort of makes reference/pokes fun of Keaton's portrayal as Batman. I recommend this.
In & Out (1997)
Kevin Kline, Joan Cusack, Matt Dillon and Tom Selleck star in this 1997 comedy. This takes place in Midwest town, Greenleaf, Indiana and focuses on English teacher, Howard Brackett (Kline) who is about to be married to long-time fiancée, Emily Montgomery (Cusack). Soon, things change for Howard after his former student turned actor, Cameron Drake (Dillon) announces that he's gay at the Oscars. Howard tries to convince the town, his family and media that he's not, but he eventually comes to terms with his sexuality. Selleck plays reporter, Peter Malloy who is also gay. Debbie Reynolds, Wilford Brimley and Bob Newhart are also featured. This is a good comedy with a good cast I recommend.
The Break-Up (2006)
"Not Bad Romantic Comedy-Drama!"
Vince Vaughn and Jennifer Aniston star in this 2006 romantic comedy-drama. This takes place in Chicago, Illinois where we meet Gary (Vaughn), a tour guide and his girlfriend, Brooke (Aniston), an art dealer. Soon, things drastically change for them when Gary doesn't step up in their relationship. They both drift apart, but decide to stay in their condo where things get tense. They seek advice from friends and relatives, but eventually they both realize they have to change. Joey Lauren Adams, Judy Davis, Ann-Margret, Justin Long, Vincent D'Onofrio and Cole Hauser appear and Vaughn's frequent collaborators, Jason Bateman, Peter Billingsley, John Michael Higgins and John Favreau also appear. This isn't bad, it has some humorous and dramatic moments and Vaughn & Aniston are good together. I recommend this.
"Steve Guttenberg Vs. Giant Lava-Spitting Spiders!"
Steve Guttenberg, Nia Peeples, Noah Hunt and Patrick Renna star in this 2015 sci-fi action film. This takes place in L.A. and Guttenberg (Police Academy) plays action film star, Colton West who finds himself in a real-life film after earthquakes unleash giant lava-spitting spiders that terrorize the city. Colton races across town to save his wife, Olivia (Peeples) and teenage son, Wyatt (Hunt). Renna (The Sandlot) plays Jack, a fan of Colton who helps him and Guttenberg's "Police Academy" co-stars, Michael Winslow, Marion Ramsey and Leslie Easterbrook also appear. This pays tribute and pokes fun at giant creature features like "Sharknado" and Guttenberg is great in it as usual. It's a cheesy, but fun flick I recommend checking out at least once.
