Post Movies you wish James would review?
I'll be having one of my long-time "wishes" fulfilled when he gets to 1984 in his 80's project, i.e. The Terminator. There are plenty of others I could name, but I wanted to start the conversation more for others than myself right off the bat.

My biggest one that is finally being answered is Back to the future. I have been wanting him to review that movie since the first day I came upon his site back in 03.

Dog Day Afternoon is my favorite movie of all time, so I would love to see what he thinks of that one.

I had this wish fulfilled when he reviewed Tremors.

I've wanted to see what he thinks of some of the old classic comedies like Caddy shack and Animal House.

Just for the fun of it, I'd like to hear his views on Hercules in New York.
(Gotta love the bear fight!)

I'd like to see reviews of the films Chris Columbus wrote before becoming a pedestrian director: Gremlins, Goonies, Young Sherlock Holmes.

Midnight Run. I've loved it ever since I saw a very very badly dubbed BBC showing of it in the mid 90's. The terrible dubbing 'Shut the fup up!' 'Frig off!' made me buy the VHS and it was one of the most uplifting, hilarious, genre bending and genuinely enjoyable films I'd seen for ages.

Boyz N the Hood
The Spy Who Came in from the Cold
Terminator 2
The Three Burials of Melquiades Estrada

Regarding the person above who mentioned Dog Day Afternoon, I seem to remember James telling me in an email long ago that he doesn't think it lives up to its reputation. Correct me if I'm wrong.

Since he's doing the 80s stuff, there's a movie that was released in 1983 called "Nate and Hayes." Tommy Lee Jones and Micheal O'Keefe. I grew up watching it, and it's amazing. If you get a chance to see it, or have already, it's very interesting to see the similarities between it and Curse of the Black Pearl.

I would want to see him do the William Friedkin films Cruising and To Live and Die in LA.

Some older stuff: Chaplin, Griffith, Bergman (I know he thinks he's hit-and-miss, but he really liked Scenes From a Marriage and Fanny and Alexander), Allen (particularly Hannah and Her Sisters and The Purple Rose of Cairo), Grand Hotel, Metropolis, Triumph of the Will, Reefer Madness, and Nanook of the North.

Sophie Scholl: The Final Days. Outstanding and overlooked film.

Death Wish, Poltergeist, all of the Dirty Harry movies, and Gremlins.

The Rocky and Rambo movies.

Rocky II is one of the most underrated sports movies. I can tell he doesn't really enjoy any of the sequels (except Balboa), but Rocky II has everything the original had, except for the meaningful ending. So I'd enjoy to read why he didn't enjoy it. :D

I've already said Sophies's Choice.

Misery

Driving Miss Daisy. (I recently watched that movie and liked it alot. But I found out people were angry at it for winning best picture. Maybe it wasn't the best but I don't think it was an absurd choice)

Fatal Attraction

Terms of Endearment (haven't seen it but I know he wasn't moved the way others were so I'd like to know why)


Kramer vs. Kramer


Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?


Angels in America (OK I don't really expect him to since it's a TV movie or miniseries or whatever, but I just put it on the table)
