    How in the name of Zeus's BUTTHOLE did Nicolas Cage become an action hero? Look at the trajectory of the Greatest Coppola's (fucking fight me on this, I dare you) career before "The Rock".

    Actually, when you look at Cage's career, anything makes perfect sense. Why wouldn't you move from winning an Oscar playing a man trying to drink himself to death to playing a Beatlemaniac chemical superfreak who takes on terrorists alongside James Bond himself? I wish more actors…

    Every Which Way but Loose

    ★★★½

    Everyone famously tried to talk Clint Eastwood out of making this movie, but clearly if Clint Eastwood wants to drink beers, punch people and drive around with an orangutan then he's damned well going to do it. The joke was on everyone else, because Clint scowled all the way to the bank (Clint seems to wear a perpetual scowl, so that doesn't mean he wasn't happy...it just means that he was Clint Eastwood).

    "Every Which Way But Loose" is firmly…

    "Dog" is what you'd get if you mixed "K-9" with "The Last Detail". Or, at least it feels like that based on my vague memories of those movies...neither of which I have seen since my teenage years. Channing Tatum is a former soldier trying to get back into mission rotations after being sidelined by brain injuries. His former commanding officer claims that he will get him an assignment if he can escort a military service dog to the funeral of…

    Jagged Edge

    ★★★½

    "Jagged Edge" is a vaguely erotic (there's one sex scene, at least) mix of courtroom drama, mystery and thriller from the director of "Return of the Jedi" (which is probably the movie least indicative of the rest of Richard Marquand's career, judging by the two others I've seen so far) and the writer of "Basic Instinct" (sleaze king Joe Eszterhas).

    From that description, you're probably having trouble picturing what the hell "Jagged Edge" is actually like. I assumed, correctly, that…

    Marisa Tomei winning an Oscar for Best Supporting Actress was long considered one of the biggest screw-ups in Oscar history. She was considered undeserving, her performance too light and insubstantial for an award.

    If you hold this opinion, I respect your viewpoint. But you can also go fuck yourself.

    If you can watch the scene at the end where Marisa explains positraction on the witness stand without smiling, and without marveling at how fully and beautifully Marisa Tomei hijacks the…

    There's a tendency of this site to immediately overrate new movies. And I get it. Seeing a film in the theater has a bewitching effect. When you're used to seeing movies on your TV or, God forbid, your tablet, the charge of seeing something projected as large as possible in a big, dark room alone makes a movie a little better. If that movie's even remotely great, then all the better. Letterboxd isn't the only social media site to stoke…
