Inside Moves Review


Bad
Director Richard Donner became a name by making big, action-packed blockbusters like Superman and the Lethal Weapon quartet.

It's like watching Michael Jordan missing a curveball by a country mile, Garth Brooks rocking out as Chris Gaines, or George W. Bush handling foreign policy.

The lead outcast here is Roary (John Savage), who attempts to end his life by jumping from a 10-story window.

Assault On Precinct 13 (1976) Review


Very Good
John Carpenter's third movie (2 years before Halloween), and one of his best, in a career that's filled with mostly downs. This low-budget shoot-em-up has L.A. gang-bangers taking a blood oath to kill a guy secreted inside a nearly vacant police station, and watching the people within resist the siege for 90 minutes is an awful lot of fun. Reportedly a remake of Rio Bravo. DVD features commentary by Carpenter.
