A nearly four-hour period gangster movie that represented the culmination of director Sergio Leone’s career. It is also a super weird movie.
A documentary featuring the voices of Black gay men, which in 1989 was enough almost to turn Washington upside down.
The story of famous Japanese author who also had his own private army and tried to overthrow the government, as one does, told in such a highly stylized manner that I honestly lost track of it.
A very low-budget 1980s film with concerns far more esoteric than your average movie, which wouldn’t be rediscovered until decades later.
A “big” hit about a kid trapped in adult’s body, which works almost entirely because Tom Hanks believably plays a 13-year-old boy.
A bombastic, action-packed sequel that has basically nothing in common with its tense, contained thriller of a predecessor, and yet both are great movies in their own way.
A completely unexpected, elemental masterpiece, it somehow feels straight out of prehistory. This may be the best animated movie most people have never heard of.
The winner of our action movie poll is the muscle-fest called “Predator,” in which Arnold Schwarzenegger fights an alien that see only in very doofy-looking heat vision.
With King Arthur back in theaters, we revisit this tonally wild epic 1980s masterpiece (??) for the Arthurian completist.
For those who enjoy a good post-apocalyptic diesel-punk environmental fable, with the usual stunning animation from Hayao Miyazaki.
