What is it they say about real estate? Location, location, location. That's certainly the case with the flat of C. C. Baxter (Jack Lemmon) in Billy Wilder's The Apartment. Viewed by many as one of the best comedies to come out of the 1960s (it wa...

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...

Arthur

It's amazing how a lifeless, pointless remake can provoke pangs of nostalgia about a mediocre movie. Such is the case with Arthur. The kindest thoughts I have ever experienced about the 1981 original occurred while I was watching Russell Brand and...

Austin Powers in Goldmember

Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery
