    Toy Story 2


    When I revisited Toy Story a few weeks ago, I felt removed from the experience. It was less like watching a movie and more like watching my memories of the movie, as if the film was now a fixed object in the past. I suppose it speaks to the greatness of Toy Story 2 that revisiting this one didn't feel like that at all. This one crackles with a wit and warmth that bursts off the screen; you can just feel the entire crew firing on all cylinders.

  • Maverick



    When I was younger, I didn't like Westerns, so I missed Maverick (both the movie and the original show) as a kid. Later, I meant to see it, but for some reason never got around to it, even in the days after Richard Donner passed. When I finally got around to watching it, I found myself struggling to find my footing.

    A small part of the problem was Mel: I admit that I find it much easier to revisit him…

    Vampire's Kiss


    Audio commentary by director Robert Bierman and actor Nicolas Cage.

    90 minutes of Bierman and Cage giggling in awe and confusion at what a ridiculous, ludicrous, insane movie they were able to get away with making, and it is glorious. Essential companion viewing to the film itself.

    Year One

    Jack Black eats a piece of shit in this movie. I don't think you need to know more.
