Top Gun Review


Good
Anyone fondly remembering Top Gun as a prototypical action-packed Jerry Bruckheimer 'nad-fest probably hasn't seen it in awhile. Newly released as a mega-deluxe DVD, it's time to remember what Top Gun really is: From "You've Lost That Lovin' Feeling" to "Take My Breath Away," it's mushy love story first, fighter-pilots-in-training movie second.

Ironically, the early 1990s would bring to light the fact that carousing was what naval pilots seemed to do best: The 1986 Tailhook scandal occured during the same year Top Gun was released.

The Secret of My Success Review


Weak
Brantley is Whitfield, Whitfield is Brantley!? Does the fun ever start? This Michael J. Fox romantic comedy about mistaken identity in big business is awfully stupid, but at least it's fun-stupid, not stupid-stupid. Slater is about as bad as they come as the office slut who slept her way to the top, but it's small roles from the likes of Pankow and Gwynne that make this 90 minutes bearable.

Anaconda Review


Terrible
Really awful giant snake movie, notable for Jon Voight's worst role ever, where he uses the pet phrase "baby bird" repeatedly and is unforgettably swallowed whole by the creature, not to mention an early Jennifer Lopez appearance. Catch it on Cinemax or something if you feel you must, but we're hard-pressed to find anything worth recommending in this wannabe camp classic that turns out to be a wholly unbelievable camp disaster.

The Flintstones in Viva Rock Vegas Review


Terrible
All right. I withered away my youth watching The Flintstones like just about every other kid in the 80s. That doesn't mean I have to like the movie or feel the slightest pang of nostalgia. I won't give any special points to The Flintstones in Viva Rock Vegas for invoking some memory in me of the pre Cartoon Network days when I watched "The Flintstones" on a black and white TV located outside of my room in the house that I grew up in.

Viva Rock Vegas is bad. Real bad. It features the same kind of dry humor that the show did, and thus makes you wonder why you watched the show in the first place. It slowly sucks the life out of you and gets progressively worse in a 80-minute running time that feels like two hours. It has the high point of watching The Great Gazoo, an alien sent to observe prehistoric man's mating patterns, get kicked and crash into signs.
