Body Double Review


Good
Craig Wasson, where have you gone? I was ready to assume Wasson's career had vanished after an unlikely star turn in Body Double, a big budget thriller with Melanie Griffith and director Brian De Palma. Turns out he's had roles in some interesting follow ups: A Nightmare on Elm Street 3, Malcolm X, and Akeelah and the Bee. Who knew? Wasson is still alive and well and working a lot, it seems.

None of his roles have matched that of Body Double, though, where the Bill Maher lookalike appears in nearly every scene. Maybe we'll be able to ferret out why during the course of this review.

American Buffalo Review


Grim
Hardly Mamet's finest play-cum-film, American Buffalo has that Mamet cadence, but none of the soul. Revolving around the pathetic attempts of two penny-ante crook wannabes and their plans to rob a coin collector, the film is circular, pedantic, and in the end, without a point -- if the picture tells us anything, it's to eschew pawn shops.

Die Hard 2 Review


Grim
Die Hard had it all: a sympathetic hero, a wonderfully serpentine villain, kick-ass fight scenes and shootouts (which are really hard to make entertaining, in the glut of routine action flicks that overflow our video racks), an enjoyably quirky supporting cast of character actors, and dialogue you could really sink your teeth into. ("I wanted this to be professional. Efficient, adroit, cooperative, not a lot to ask. Alas, your Mr. Takagi did not see it that way, so he won't be joining us for the rest of his life.") This flick was so pervasive, we had to endure a slew of rip-offs: Die Hard at sea, Die Hard on an ocean liner, Die Hard in a friggin' library! OK, so they never did one in a library, but that would be pretty funny, wouldn't it? [Indeed they did do it in a library: Masterminds. -Ed.]

What a pity that Die Hard 2: Die Harder (based on the novel 58 Minutes) falls into the trap of being just another Die Hard in Washington's Dulles Airport. I mean, it's kinda funny that John McClane (Bruce Willis, having a good ol' time) acknowledges his pathetic luck. Not this shit again! He's waiting for his wife's plane to land when terrorists seize control of the airport, crashing a plane just to prove that they'll stop at nothing. Yes, they will stop at nothing! Insert an evil laugh here, and throw in a moustache twirl, why dontcha?

Dressed To Kill Review


Good
Angie Dickenson isn't the one that's dressed to kill -- she's dressed to get killed. When she gets butchered by a razor-wielding mystery woman in an elevator, it's up to a cop (Dennis Franz) and her shrink (Michael Caine) to figure out who offed the nymphomaniacal Angie. Oh, and Angie's son teams up with the hooker who witnessed the murder to do an investigation of their own.

The Package Review


OK
A capable and decent thriller, The Package has that familiar old Gene Hackman crusty military character that we've all grown to love. The conspiracy/nuclear disarmament plot is really outdated now, but a little paranoia can go a long way in a flick like this.
