A Nightmare On Elm Street Review


Grim
A Nightmare on Elm Street, and more notably Freddy Kruger, has a special place in the hearts of many Americans in their late 20s and early 30s. When the movie was released in 1984, these now older viewers were in elementary and middle school. The dark was a formidable threat, and a villain like Kruger was a concern that tapped at the corners of the mind.

Viewed through older eyes, Nightmare isn't remotely scary. I can see the nostalgic value of Freddy Kruger (played by Robert Englund, who has a built career on this role) the same way that I sometimes hum Debbie Gibson songs to myself. But as a first-time viewer, I found my attention caught by the lousy acting, hideously dated wardrobe, and actress Ronee Blakley's apparent bronzer addiction. She makes Jessica Simpson in The Dukes of Hazzard look like an albino.

A Nightmare On Elm Street Review


Good
In 1984, A Nightmare on Elm Street revived the teen horror genre, later spawning six sequels about Freddy, the burn victim/child killer who kills you when you fall asleep. Who knew that the sheep were homages to Buñuel? Or that this was Johnny Depp's first movie? The DVD has a commentary track with Craven and the then-idolized Langenkamp, among others, to clear this all up for you.

Who Framed Roger Rabbit Review


Excellent
Anyone who thinks Andy Serkis broke new ground as the first real "animated actor" in 2003's The Two Towers needs to check their history books. Charles Fleischer appeared on camera as Roger Rabbit in the 1988 classic -- while wearing rubber rabbit ears and providing the voice of the character, too. He was later animated over in the studio, along with the rest of the animated characters in the film, which appear alongside the human actors and who accept them as perfectly real (only worthy of segregation in "Toon Town").

Its story is archetypal whodunit interlaced with comedy -- the hotshot toon in 1947 Hollywood is Maroon Cartoon superstar Roger Rabbit, who becomes suspect #1 when a local bigwig is found murdered, namely because bigwig is getting on with possibly the hottest cartoon of all time -- Jessica Rabbit (voiced by an uncredited Kathleen Turner), Roger's impossibly buxom wife.
