DR. NO (1962)

With the 25th James Bond movie releasing today, we revisit the very first, which is much slower but does find the character himself fully formed.

L’HOMME DEL RIO (1964)

In celebration of the late Jean-Paul Belmondo, we visit a big fun 1960s action-adventure, French-style.

ALIENS (1986)

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.

OUR 300th MOVIE: PREDATOR (1987)

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.

ENTER THE DRAGON (1973)

This mega-hit made Bruce Lee a household name and became maybe the most successful and influential martial arts movie ever made.

THE NAKED GUN: FROM THE FILES OF POLICE SQUAD! (1988)

An extremely silly cop spoof with an extended, chaotic climax at a baseball game. As comedies go, this one’s right in my wheelhouse

POINT BREAK (1991)

This is a very silly but somehow a very good action movie about robbing banks, surfing, skydiving, and many other things. At one point Patrick Swayze throws a dog at Keanu Reeves.

BONNIE AND CLYDE (1967)

Thank you to everyone who joined us for our Watch Party of this seminal 1967 counterculture classic about Depression-era bank robbers.

SHAFT (1971)

He’s a Black private dick who’s a sex machine with all the chicks, but I found his movie not as interesting as one might think.
