Parker

Stark raving average.


Action

Rod Lott
While it's admirable that Parker is dedicated to the memory of Donald E. Westlake, the legendary crime author who wrote two dozen novels about the character under the Richard Stark pen name, this Parker is not his Parker. It's Taylor Hackford's, and the director continues to apply his nondescript, workmanlike touch to average material (see Love Ranch, Ray, Proof of Life, etc.). He neither improves it nor harms it; he simply keeps it afloat.

The Philadelphia Experiment

‘Experiment’ failed.


Sci-Fi

Rod Lott
There's a theory about remakes that perhaps Hollywood should stop remaking good movies and instead remake the bad ones, so that they may be improved. The problem with that theory is one runs the risk of the remake being bad, too. Case in point: The Philadelphia Experiment.

Evil Dead

Major-studio horror doesn’t get much better — or bloodier!


Horror

Rod Lott
From the prologue of Evil Dead, it’s evident this is not your everyday, note-for-note, beat-for-beat horror remake. In fact, it joins that select group of remakes that stand on their own while remaining respectful of their source, i.e. The Fly, The Blob, The Thing (John Carpenter's, mind you) and Dawn of the Dead.
