The Great Santini Review


Excellent
An exceptional film, this odd combination of Top Gun and Ordinary People features Robert Duvall in one of his greatest performances (Oscar-nominated, too) as the difficult Marine family patriarch in the years leading up to the Vietnam War. This ain't Major Dad, as Duvall's "Great Santini" drinks hard and pushes his kids to the limit. Or beyond. Some of it's funny, some of its tragic, and with the exception of a misfired subplot about race relations, all of it's stellar.

Coneheads Review


OK
It sounds weird to say it, but Coneheads the movie is underrated. How come it's better than your typical SNL adaptation? A new spin on the original skit with some fresh stars like Sinbad and McKean plus a generous special effects budget fill in the gaps when the movie flags. Plus a revival of "Tainted Love" doesn't hurt.
