(Hi May 2020: twenty year old capsule reviews. I was in my twenties. I have misgivings getting this page to work again.)

I think most film reviews are too long, which leads to giving away story or needless repetition -- both of the reviewer's opinion and of information you already got from the trailers, commercials and posters, if you wanted to know it at all. I've also got tons of other stuff to do and I'm not paid for this, so here you go: the film review as sound bite.

My comments of course come from my own particular film sensibilities and I don't expect them to match those of anyone else on earth.

Titles (sometimes, but not today) link to their Internet Movie Data Base listings.

I can remember a time when where we went to the movies was just as important as the movies we went to see .... From the moment moviegoers arrived to buy their tickets, there was a sense of something special, a feeling that to step inside was to enter another time and place. - Gene Kelly
