Around the World in 80 Days

For a current-day viewer to contemplate how Around the World in 80 Days won the 1957 Best Picture Oscar (in addition to four other statuettes), either imagination or time-travel is required. (The latter being more appropriate for H.G. Wells th...

Crocodile Dundee

The success of Paul Hogan's Crocodile Dundee in America is about as unlikely as the success of the title character on the streets of New York City. Nevertheless, in part because of Hogan's winning smile and in part because of his unpretentious sty...

Jumanji: The Next Level

Perhaps there are interesting directions in which the filmmakers could have taken the Jumanji series – after all, the 2017 reboot, Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle, was vast improvement over the mid-1990s original. Unfortunately, driven by Hol...

Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle

Every year, there are a handful of pleasant and unpleasant surprises in multiplexes. Count Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle among the former. A tremendous improvement over the tepid 1995 original, this quasi-sequel brings humor, fun performances,...

Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian

The best thing that can be said about the second Night at the Museum (which bears the unnecessarily long full title of Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian) is that it's harmless. And pointless. And dumb. This is a perfect example of a ...
