Pulp Fiction is a film that still blows me away after all of these years. Highly stylized and original all the same.
John Dahl (Red Rock West) delivers another great Film Noir. This one is even more spellbinding... Linda Fiorentino is on fire here.
Remember when Tim Burton made films that didn't really safely color inside someone else's lines? Ed Wood is the most loving and entertaining portrait of a bad filmmaker you'll ever see.
John Waters' utterly hilarious send-up of suburban life. Kathleen Turner has never been better.
The Action movie of the 90's. Speed, for lack of a better word, rocks.
Hal Hartley's quirky comedy about a nun who writes for adult magazines and the porno filmmaker who loses his memory. Strange, yet totally fun. Isabelle Huppert is great as always.
Woody Allen's look at a play gone haywire is one of his funniest films. An excellent cast all around. Especially Dianne Wiest and Jennifer Tilly.
Whit Stillman's excellent and funny second film after his debut, Metropolitan. Barcelona follows a Felix & Oscar-like duo of Yuppies as they bicker and find romance in Spain.
Toni Collette shines in this Australian import about a shy young woman trying to find herself with the help of a friend and no support from her awful family in this very funny and charming film.
Roman Polanski's look at a woman who confronts her possible captor is one really intense showdown. Sigourney Weaver really had me captivated.
I couldn't find enough horror films I loved in '94, so here's a few of 'em:
Top 6 Horror:
Wes Craven's first stab at post-modern horror follows Freddy Krueger wreaking havoc on the life of the actress from the first Elm Street movie. Very smart and very fun.
A slickly made Sci-Fi/Horror film about Alien invasion. Very well paced and super entertaining.
Silly for sure, Brainscan still maintains an appropriate amount of menace and bloody horror throughout in this entertaining chronicle of a young man who literally gets into his gaming.
A pretty underrated horror film about a murder on a film set has oodles of suspense.
Director Michael Almereyda's inventive post-modern take on the vampire/dracula saga follows good old Count Dracula's kids and their need for blood against the backdrop of downtown Manhattan.
Come on, a paperboy who kills. Hilarious!
