SHE DIES TOMORROW
"Okay, but it demands patience."
3 stars
Rob Gonsalves says... "A single concept — that you are going to die tomorrow — lodges like a tick in the psyche of whoever hears it. Whoever hears it then passes it to more people, so it spreads like a lethal virus." (more)
MORNING AFTER, THE
"A Fine Character-Driven Mystery"
4 stars
Jack Sommersby says... "A solid Christmas Day release back in the day that still holds up." (more)
I WEIRDO
"Everything changes."
4 stars
Jay Seaver says... "SCREENED VIA THE 2020 NEW YORK ASIAN FILM FESTIVAL: The screwy capitalization/punctuation of "I WeirDO" feels like it's something that should get under the skin of its main characters, both dealing with obsessive-compulsive disorder, and I wonder if the Chinese title ("Guai Tai") gets that across. I kind of hope not; this is a pretty good movie despite filmmaker Liao Ming-Yi's tendency to seemingly go for the gimmick on both ends, and that shouldn't be overwhelmed by the way it tries to get cute."

RUSH (1991)
"Compelling Subject Matter Given Its Due"
4 stars
Jack Sommersby says... "No, it's not a "Drugstore Cowboy" but it still gets a lot right." (more)
MILES FROM HOME
"An Interesting Road Picture with Commendable Acting"
4 stars
Jack Sommersby says... "Even though starring Richard Gere it was mostly released to art-house theaters, resulting in a paltry box-office take. A real shame." (more)
GROSS ANATOMY
"'The Paper Chase' Gone Medical School"
4 stars
Jack Sommersby says... "Should have done better box office but audiences weren't keen on it at the time." (more)
BLUE STEEL
"A Semi-Worthy Case of Style Over Substance"
3 stars
Jack Sommersby says... "Did decent box office back in the day, and I think it's superior to the director's much-heralded "Near Dark" three years prior." (more)
WITNESS OUT OF THE BLUE, A
"Not the cop/parrot buddy movie I wanted, but still pretty good!"
4 stars
Jay Seaver says... "SCREENED VIA THE 2020 NEW YORK ASIAN FILM FESTIVAL: It is entirely fair to want more of the parrot in "A Witness Out of the Blue"; it's the hook in the opening scene and the focus of the opening credits, and probably what you'd bring up when describing the movie to someone else. The good news is that even if the movie doesn't have as many parrot-related shenanigans as one might hope, it's a nicely twisty little mystery that does a bit of everything, to the point where it's almost too much." (more)
BRADDOCK: MISSING IN ACTION III
"An Enjoyable Sequel That Delivers the Goods"
4 stars
Jack Sommersby says... "Didn't make much of an impression at the time, but it's developed a pretty loyal following." (more)
HEAVENLY KID, THE
"Inoffensive but Unmemorable"
2 stars
Jack Sommersby says... "Its desire to take absolutely no artistic chances whatsoever is the chief reason for its downfall." (more)
