"80's Chase Classic!"
Chevy Chase, Dana Wheeler-Nicholson, Tim Matheson and Joe Don Baker star in this 1985 comedy based on the book. Chase (Vacation films) plays Irwin Fletcher aka Fletch, a L.A. journalist who works under the name, Jane Doe and is a master of disguise. Soon, he's hired by wealthy businessman, Alan Stanwyk (Matheson) to kill him for 50 grand because he's diagnosed with cancer. Fletch agrees and decides to snoop into Alan's personal files discovering he's not ill and is a drug-dealer. Fletch also meets and falls for his wife, Gail (Nicholson) who eventually discovers Alan is trying to steal her money. Baker (The Natural) plays crooked police chief, Jerry Karlin who is dealing with Alan. Geena Davis, George Wendt, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, M. Emmett Walsh and the late, James Avery also appear. Chase is great in this as usual as well as Harold Faltermeyer's score. I recommend this 80's Chase classic.

Don't Go in the Woods (1981)
"One Of The Worst Slasher Flicks!"
This 1981 horror film tells of a group of people who go camping for the weekend and become hunted in the wilderness by a grizzly mountain man who preys on campers and tourists. This has got to be one of the worst slasher flicks I've seen so far. It's boring, the acting is terrible, the special effects stink, the characters are unlikeable and the killer isn't intimidating because he's basically a hobo who growls when he attacks. The only decent aspect of the film is the nice scenery/settings. It had potential for it's remote atmosphere, but fails and definitely copies "Friday the 13th" & "Just Before Dawn." If you're a fan of the slasher genre, don't waste your time watching this which should've been the title.
"Good Action Thriller!"
Liam Neeson, Julianne Moore, Michelle Dockery and Linus Roache star in this 2014 action thriller.

Bill is trapped in a nightmare and stops at nothing to find him while the passengers panic. Moore (Hannibal) plays Jen Summers, a passenger who Bill befriends, Dockery plays flight attendant, Nancy who is a friend of Bill's and Roache (Batman Begins) plays pilot, David McMillan. This is a good action thriller, Neeson is great as usual as well as John Ottman's score. I recommend this.
