Quick Take: THE LAST MERCENARY
Benefits from the spectacle of watching Jean-Claude Van Damme deliver kicks like it’s still 1989.
Laurence Olivier’s artistic choices here made Shakespeare look daringly fresh.
Review: HENRY V
The result was a film that seemed both ahead of its time and grounded in the tradition of the theater.
Quick Take: OLD
Never dull, but a bit of a mess, constantly falling short of providing a satisfying amount of thrills or emotion.

An action-comedy that desperately tries to find the right tone and balance, offering neither laughs nor tension.
Quick Take: FEAR STREET: 1666
A little uneven, but ties up loose ends effectively, adding social commentary without losing sight of its horror ingredients.
Quick Take: SPACE JAM: A NEW LEGACY
LeBron James’s charisma isn’t on Michael Jordan’s level, but what’s worse is Warner’s constant, smug self-promotion.
Review: BICYCLE THIEVES
It has become the most famous neorealist film of them all, not least because of its power to move mass audiences.
