Pre-2017 Film Reviews

Airplane! / Top Secret!

Roderick Heath @ Film Freedonia [1980, 1984]

  • Excerpt: Perhaps the deepest source of Airplane!’s specific pep lay in its driving sense of ironic contrast, between the slick neatness of Hollywood narrative and the bizarre lilt of modern American life circa 1980.

The Green Slime

Steve Biodrowski @ Hollywood Gothique [1968]

  • Excerpt: Although the steaming pile of electrified goo that is The Green Slime never coalesces into anything resembling a good movie, it nevertheless demands attention for two reasons having little to do with the usual “so bad it’s good” assessment.

John Wick [Croatian]

Dragan Antulov @ Draxblog VI [2014]

The Last Run

Roderick Heath @ This Island Rod [1971]

  • Excerpt: Well predating Walter Hill’s The Driver (1978) as the granddaddy of getaway driver action flicks like Drive (2011) and Baby Driver (2017), The Last Run is a film badly in need of appreciation.

The Running Man

Peter Nellhaus @ Coffee, Coffee and more Coffee [1963]

  • Excerpt: Even though Reed would realize critical and commercial success just a few years later with Oliver!, it is The Running Man that can be said to be his last truly personal film.
