The Dead Zone Review


Very Good
One of the more successful entries into the Stephen King horror film genre (and probably the best under the Dino De Laurentiis production label), The Dead Zone is aided in no small part by Christopher Walken in the lead role.

Walken stars as high school teacher Johnny Smith, who wrecks his Beetle and spends five years in a coma, only to discover he now has the gift of second sight. Predicting local tragedies is one thing, but eventually he becomes entangled in a political race (with Martin Sheen running for President), and Johnny foresees that if he wins, disaster will ensue (you know, the nuclear kind).

Indiana Jones And The Last Crusade Review


Essential
Released in 1989, Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade is one of the reasons why I believe in the summer blockbuster. The movie provides us with unadulterated entertainment for more than two hours, which is a nearly impossible feat to pull off these days. And it's a sequel, to boot. I don't think there was thirty minutes of entertainment in Charlie's Angles: Full Throttle and American Wedding combined.

Those two ill-fated movies didn't have half the talent behind Last Crusade. Steven Spielberg is back behind the camera, with executive producer George Lucas co-creating the nifty story, which has Indiana Jones recruited by a wealthy collector (Julian Glover) to find nothing less than the Holy Grail. Along the way, Indy encounters a well-armed band of religious zealots, Nazis, and his fussy father (Sean Connery), the missing leader of the Grail project who doesn't embrace his son's sense of adventure.

The Lost Boys Review


Weak
The Lost Boys is a movie I'm sure its participants want frozen in time. Back in 1987, Jason Patric had potential, Jami Gertz was an It Girl, and the Coreys were at the height of their powers. This is not the movie to remember that era. Aside from a good ending, you never want to reach for the covers or turn on all the lights.

Brothers Sam (Corey Haim) and Michael (Patric, with Scott Valentine's hair), along with their hippie divorcee mom (an oddly cast Dianne Wiest), move to Santa Carla, California, a small town home to a busy boardwalk featuring an amusement park, derelicts galore, and a slight vampire problem. Much to his regret, Michael befriends a group of vampires headed by Kiefer Sutherland, and slowly becomes one. Sam, full of good intentions and a logic fueled by comic books, comes to his aid, enlisting the help of two gung-ho amateur slayer siblings (Corey Feldman and Jamison Newlander) to kill the unknown head vampire and turn Michael back to his normal teenage self.
