Cameron Crowe’s Elizabethtown has only gotten better with age, and I’m starting to think if it might actually be one of the writer-director stronger motion pictures.
“Nobody got cold feet about doing something super crazy, because you can’t go into something like this fearful.”

Douglas Trumball’s Silent Running is a flawed classic, but that still makes it a classic.
The Dark and the Wicked isn’t a piece of light and fluffy horror entertainment. There are no rainbows here, Bryan Bertino’s latest more than living up to its title as being both agonizingly dark and paralyzingly wicked.
Collateral has held up brilliantly. A great film at the time of its release, Michael Mann’s seductively unsettling crime thriller has to my mind emerged as one of the the 21st century’s best pieces of pop entertainment.
The Wolf of Snow Hollow has continued to grow on me. I had a marvelous time revisiting the film on Blu-ray, Jim Cummings’ small snowy town character study masquerading as a supernatural horror movie bringing a great big smile to my face.
2067 is aggressively underwhelming, and even though writer/director Seth Larney makes the most of his limited budget, this is one science fiction adventure I’d rather have avoided going on.
V for Vendetta plays a little differently in 2020 than it did in 2006, that’s for certain.
Yet the kinetic fury of Snyder’s box office smash cannot be denied. It’s numerous flaws notwithstanding, this is still a rousingly entertaining spectacle, and watching it again I was struck by just how absorbing I continue to find 300 to be.
