The Stone Roses: self-titled

The Stone Roses is an album where everything was on the money. From the opening rumblings of “I Wanna Be Adored”, it was a declaration of intent from four men who knew they were better than what had gone before them and knew they had created something special.

The Road to Wellville (1994)

Contrary to Kellogg's message, self-denial is ultimately the disease, not the cure.


The Ring (2002)

Gore Verbinski's The Ring is relentlessly disquieting and incoherent, and sometimes trite in ways it doesn't need to be.


Punch-Drunk Love (2002)

Deftly rearranges any number of generic conventions, from romantic comedies, musicals, and melodramas with happy endings that can't make sense but seem inevitable and necessary.


Quitting (2001)

Perverse as that sounds, the opportunity really is an actor's dream: role-of-a-lifetime gig and therapeutic session in one fell swoop.


Heaven (2002)

Heaven begins with assorted ascents. Written by the late Krzysztof Kieslowski (with Krzysztof Piesiewicz), and intended as part of a trilogy (Heaven, Hell, and Purgatory), it explores accident and fate, guilt and grief, time and truth.


Formula 51 (2001)

In Ronny Yu's mostly formulaic Formula 51, Samuel L. Jackson plays Elmo McElroy, a chemical whiz busted for smoking reefer.


Earth vs. the Flying Saucers (1956)

It's ironic and wholly predictable that Keyhoe's protest against government and military censorship was, in fact, censored in Earth vs. the Flying Saucers.
