HOUSE PARTY (1990)

A very fun teen time capsule from 1990 that has a lot on its mind but resists any major dramatics.

FREAKS (1932)

Is it a horror movie or “one of the most compassionate movies ever made?” Or somehow both? A career-destroying flop that has gradually become director Tod Browning’s most acclaimed film.

THE AFRICAN QUEEN (1951)

I still think this enjoyable adventure story holds up, though the story of its shooting in the Congo (including possible accidental cannibalism) is now at least as famous as the movie itself.

MANHATTAN (1979)

HOW WAS THIS EVER OK, BABY BOOMERS? WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU? But the cinematography is pretty and there are a lot of great one-liners.

AMADEUS (1984)

A story about a normal human who is confronted with genius and it slowly drives him insane. I think I might like this movie so much because of my own psychological problems, but I definitely like it a lot.

GOJIRA (1954)

With “Godzilla vs. Kong” trying to lure viewers back to theaters, we re-visit the giant lizard monster’s first on-screen appearance.

THE SILENCE OF THE LAMBS (1991)

Describing the plot of this movie, where one serial killer helps a trainee FBI agent catch another, does not do justice to how spectacularly well made and acted it is.
