Air Force One is a strange film, a kind of film from simpler times I guess but after 20 years, for the most part the film holds up well, mainly for the performances by Harrison Ford and Gary Oldman more so than the dated visual effects.
Session 9 doesn’t feature great performances, though Caruso is a lot of fun to watch, though Peter Mullan and Josh Lucas had a few solid scenes, and the writing is, at best, so-so, but writer/director Brad Anderson did take full advantage of the real-life creepy location of the mental hospital to great effect.
Spotlight might not be at the top of my best of 2015 list but it’s still a well made film all around from the efficient direction, tight writing and brilliant performances (save for Ruffalo in the one scene) so I have no qualms with its recent win for Best Picture and say it’s well worth purchase.
“CSI”: The Fourteenth Season might not be a standout season for this long-running series but it does have its moments and unlike the short-lived Laurence Fishburne era, where stories managed to be even darker in tone, this ensemble headed by Ted Danson, seems to have coalesced quite well.
Striptease isn’t a good movie yet at the same time I have to admire the energy Demi Moore and the supporting cast brought despite a poorly written screenplay. There’s only one reason the movie even has any staying power today and from that point of view, I suppose it doesn’t disappoint because Demi Moore is gorgeous, but if you’re looking ofr a half-decent plot, then forget about it.
