    L.A. Confidential

    โ˜…โ˜…โ˜…โ˜…ยฝ

    Maybe itโ€™s me, but this one seems to waning from the mass consciousness of moviedom for some reason. Donโ€™t let that stop you from revisiting this excellent 90s corrupt-cop, crime drama (say that three times). It captures the feel of noir, without being a parody โ€” its strong script treatment and thrilling Scorsese-lite visuals forge an edge-of-your-seat thriller with one of the most satisfying final acts of the nineties.

    The Long Goodbye

    โ˜…โ˜…โ˜…โ˜…โ˜…

    Goodbye is a vibe film, but itโ€™s got so much going on beneath that. It pushes the format of a โ€œRaymond Chandler filmโ€ outside the realms of expectation, producing a counterculture Philip Marlowe movie that is both defiant and a terrific adaption. โ€œIt's okay with me...โ€

    Almost better than Dirty Harry. Magnum Force works because it contributes an ideological counterpoint to Dirtyย Harry โ€”ย vigilantism run amock โ€” how far is too far? It's a question that the film wisely chooses not to answer โ€” allowing viewers to grapple with their own beliefs.ย 

    Callahan himself is a softer figure in the sequel, his rougher edges slightly rounded off to fitย the requirements of the film's story. The script by John Milius and Michael Cimino does a nice job ofโ€ฆ

    โ˜…โ˜…โ˜…

    Half horror movie, half action movie. An intriguing combination that kinda works here...

    I donโ€™t mind an action movie thatโ€™s stripped down to its bare essentials (see: Commando). Butย Cobraย is a little different โ€” thereโ€™s lean & mean and thereโ€™s stripped so bare that thereโ€™s not much left. Cobra plunges into the latter category. At 87 minutes (!!) thereโ€™s not much to dislike, but as an action fan, youโ€™re ultimately left a little wanting. The eighties MTV-style music montages are great though, bring them back!
