Samuel L Jackson plays a gunrunner who wants to retire rich but there are a few too many hands trying to reach out for his prize and that includes a desperate flight attendant who got caught running his cash. Tarrantino's laid back film has it's haters for the reason that this movie isn't like Pulp Fiction but give it another look and it's cool as a rule.

Sandra Bullock is a party girl with little responsibility for herself or those around her which means she can drink and pop pills the night away until rehab comes calling after Bullock gets into a car accident. Some scenes you can call a mile away and others that you don't play strongly. Don't confuse this for a comedy though, never mind the lighter scenes.

The movie that no one thought would be good and proved just about everyone wrong has Stallone putting to bed his famous boxing hero the right way, with a little dignity and genuine closure as Rocky Balboa, now a widower yearns to get into the ring to chase his demons away, the current champion needs a career boost since he's hated by the boxing fanbase for winning to many easy fights. The two meet and it's time to give em' one more match.

Whoa, wait, a Seagal movie thats good, and a SEQUEL?! You bet. Falls into "Commando" territory for again maybe not being good, but at least being very entertaining. The plot about a stolen Killer Satalite that can create earthquakes is jackass and a lot of the special effects are below par even by the times, but the movie's pace, action scenes and cast are all good. Roll your eyes, but have fun doing it.

Eddie Murphy made it super big in 84 with this fish out of water story about a reckless but talented cop from scummy Detroit going to posh and flakey Beverly Hills to catch his friend's killer. The culture clash is fun, Murphy is great and his scene with Bronson Pinchot is classic. The sequels were loud and lame, but this one is great. Murphy still wants to make a 4th movie-only if he acts like he did here will it work.
Clooney's first run with the Coen Brothers is this "old timey" tale where three convicts escape they're chain gang and run into adventures across Mississippi so that Clooney can get home to his wife. Singing and dancing and other stops along the way occur in this weird adventure that isn't in the least taken from "The Odyssey."

Rambunctious hockey player needs to make big money fast to save his grandmother's house from the IRS and learns that he has the talent to hit golfballs and ends up on the pro tour, much to the chagrin of a snooty golf pro. One of Sandler's better early movies.
G Men keep aliens under wraps as quietly as they can, but a big, ugly and nasty one is causing trouble in New York and Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones need to put it to a stop. Fun tongue and cheek humor with action.
Jim Carey wasn't any funnier, or dumber then he was here in this comedy about two idiot pals who go across the country to take back a briefcase to a scoialite and have stupid adventures along the way. So many classic moments, it's great.

Uma Thurman continued to kick ass and take names in the second half of the Kill Bill saga, with The Bride closing in on Bill, she must first deal with Bill's beer swilling brother Budd and the mirthless Elle Driver. Vol 2 isn't lacking in the story telling that Vol 1 was lacking and has enough action to keep things moving.
I tried thinking of something good that Rob Schneider was in, and then I remembered that he had a bit role in this Stallone movie, and wouldn't you know it, Schneider still sucks here too but at least the movie was good. I almost went with The Animal, but then good taste prevailed.
