The Big Picture Review


Extraordinary
This tragically underrated look at Hollywood isn't exactly realistic (if it was this easy to become a celebrity director, I'd quit this gig in a heartbeat), but damn if it isn't funny as hell. From the twisted mind of Christopher Guest, who undoubtedly has a few Hollywood tales of his own to tell, The Big Picture takes us through one man's (Kevin Bacon) brief ride from the top of the Hollywood heap to the bottom and back to the top again, all carried by an absurd wave of hype. Dozens of A-listers appear in roles large and small, none of whom quite approaches the hysterical level of Martin Short as Bacon's effeminate agent.

The Punisher (1989) Review


Unbearable
One of cinema's worst duds ever, Dolph Lundgren is actually at his mediocre best here as the Marvel Comics star -- a former policeman turned vigilante who is out to avenge the death of his wife and child.

Metro Review


Terrible
Awful and derivative, this Eddie Murphy vehicle relies so much on is-there-a-killer-aroiund-the-corner-no-it's-a-dog fright gags that it's pathetic. Maybe the worst offender of all is near the end, when Murphy's cop (of course) finds a little package in front of his door and spends 30 seconds slowly opening it... to... reveal... a... cassette tape! Good lord. I'd explain the plot but that would force me to further insult us both.
