I get why last year's found-footage anthology, V/H/S, proved so divisive to horror audiences. I don't agree with it, but hey, it makes my job reviewing the sequel so much easier: If you liked V/H/S, just press play on V/H/S/2; if you didn't, don't even start.
Although The Fugitive was a monster hit in the summer of 1993, it seems to have been lost to the ages. It shouldn't. Perhaps Warner Home Video's 20th-anniversary Blu-ray will help see to that. Remember, folks, this movie was up for Best Picture at the Academy Awards — an action film!
Inspired by the dirty doings of mass murderer Charles Whitman, 1968's once-controversial Targets is the first true film directed by Peter Bogdanovich and also — I think, despite Oscar love for his '70s work — his best. It's also one of Warner Archive's finest rescues from out-of-print oblivion yet.
If you don't already hate hippies, An American Hippie in Israel just might shove you into that corner. The 1972 oddity by first- and last-time filmmaker Amos Sefer is as odd as it is unsubtle; this is a film that runs its lone point into the ground with the weight of … well, the steamroller that flattens the flowers in the opening credits. Get it?
With the run of original Star Trek films, there's a long-standing theory that only the even-numbered entries are good, i.e. Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan, Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home, Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country. Well, that theory does not apply to director J.J. Abrams' rebooted franchise; both of his voyages of the starship Enterprise — 2009's Star Trek and this summer's sequel of Star Trek Into Darkness — stand strong as successes across the board: creative, critical and financial.
