PasschendaelePasschendaele (2008)
2 stars (Good Try) This is another example of writer/director/leading man. Passchendaele makes an appearance after an hour but even then has to share screen time with the romantic leftovers from earlier.
Boudu Saved from DrowningBoudu Saved from Drowning (1932)Recommended
3 stars (Good Enough) The best compliment I can pay it is that it is still well worth watching 90 years on. The screenplay is very good and as it is played out whimsically it is also very entertaining.
EnigmaEnigma (2001)Recommended
3 stars (Good Enough) Although the true story of the code breakers is now reasonably well known this dramatisation is well worth it considering the quality of the cast and the production's period details.
California SplitCalifornia Split (1974)Recommended
3 stars (Good Enough) The screenplay has aged pretty well and the gambling den scenes are very believable and strong.
KagemushaKagemusha (1980)
4 stars (Very Good) Although the screenplay is a tad overlong the basic plot is an interesting one and the stunning visuals will maintain interest.
Lover, TheLover, The (1992)
3 stars (Good Enough) The films location shooting is 5 star. The indoor screenplay is pretty ordinary however, and it is a pity that everything wasn't shot outdoors, even if this meant launching a mattress on the Mekong.
Three AmigosThree Amigos (1986)
3 stars (Good Enough) A little uneven but it has some worthwhile comedy segments.
Late August, Early SeptemberLate August, Early September (Fin août, début septembre) (1998)
2 stars (Good Try) Characters wasting their lives and wasting your time.
Leftovers, The (TV Series)Leftovers, The (TV Series) (2014)Recommended
3 stars (Good Enough) Season 1: The basic premise has intelligence and the screenplay doesn't dip to any noticeable extent. There is nothing wrong with the casting.
Long Goodbye, TheLong Goodbye, The (1973)Recommended
3 stars (Good Enough) Gould (the one with the permanent cigarette) is well cast in this at times untidy screenplay. Not great but it is probably a film you could see more than once without being bored.
