    Big Trouble in Little China

    ★★★

    Absolutely gorgeous filmmaking, and absolutely batshit crazy everything else. John Carpenter knows how to make a good movie, and decided to make this instead. You know what? I had an okay time.

    I'm just glad a stupid white truck driver could save the Chinese people in Chinatown from an ancient Chinese warlock. That's what really matters.

    Working Girl

    ★★★

    My god. It all makes sense now. I think one of my friends watched this movie and used it as a manifesto for her approach to being a woman entering the world of business in 2019.

    It does also explain her hairstyles, but that part might be coincidental since she really does rock it.

    The Peacemaker

    ★★½

    A perfectly serviceable military espionage action thriller built entirely on tired, recycled tropes and cliches.

    I laughed out loud every time Clooney and Kidman leapt in unison away from an explosion in slow motion. I laughed too much.

    Sahara

    ★★½

    I love adventure films as much as the next bozo, but maybe a little less corporate corruption and mindless action, and a little more treasure hunting? They spend a full hour and a half chasing down a polluting corporation and only about 10 minutes searching for what ultimately serves as a macguffin framing device. Talk about a bait and switch.

    Also Clive Cussler has such a boner for boats that he wrote a naval battle into the bloody Sahara and honestly I'm kind of impressed by the sheer audacity.
