1776 (1972)

Fortunately, the film doesn't take itself or the three leaders of the independence movement too seriously.


Reign of Fire (2002)

There's probably something to be said here about guys and competition and pointy weapons.


Real Genius (1985)

Whereas most teen films collapse into a mindless sequence of witless one-liners and antiquated sight gags, Real Genius remains effervescent and engaging.


Road to Perdition (2002)

The perfectly grim surface evokes eons of pain, as well as a highly stylized contemporary sensibility, not so much cynical as skeptical and self-aware.


Ghost Sweeper Mikami: Sharon Becker, Angora Deb, Wayne Grayson - PopMatters Film Review )

There is one huge difference between Mikami and Buffy -- Mikami is strictly in it for the cash, possessed of an all-consuming greed that makes for real comedy . . .


Gangster No. 1 (2000)

Gangster No. 1's style and plot are stale.
