Movie Ratings and Reviews

The Lawless Frontier

Poor cinematography but a good old classic story.

The Count of Monte Cristo
½

A great story of faith, and revenge. A good display of acting and cinematography.

Man of Steel
Man of Steel(2013)

A great plot with a new spin on Superman. It is a little too sci-fi with too much CGI. The CGI disappointed me coming from Christopher Nolan. It did not seem as if his heart was in this film as much as the batman film which he has done.

The Searchers
½

Several of Wayne's films encouraged acceptance and to overcome prejudices. This was not one of them, although Wayne's character is a lot rounder character than most that he plays.

Superman Returns

This movie is full of plot holes and problems. It is entertaining but focuses more on his love life than it does on him fighting for "truth, justice, and the American way."

Big Jake
Big Jake(1971)

Big Jake's character is epic John Wayne. A model of toughness smoothed with compassion in just the right places.

Shooter
Shooter(2007)

This is a movie with an agenda. It speaks to the corruption of Washington, and how deep it runs. However, the solution which it presents is no better. There are quite a few technical mistakes, but it does have a good entertainment value.

The Magnificent Seven
½

A great movie which teaches some good moral lessons.

Sherlock Holmes

This film is written very well. Although the story is not a Sherlock Holmes original, they did an excellent job keeping them true to character.

Saints and Soldiers

It is a great film about the horrors of conscience a soldier may face, and how he comes to face them.

Star Wars: Episode II - Attack of the Clones

The story is awkward at best and doesn't flow. It is so full of conflict that it is not enjoyable to watch. In my opinion this film ruined Lucas's reputation for the Star Wars franchise.

Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace

I know most die-hard Star Wars fans hate this movie, but I really enjoyed it. If you can accept the fictional characters from the fictional worlds which Lucas created, this tells an entertaining story.

McLintock!
McLintock!(1963)

Teaches an important part of U.S. history in the way only John Wayne can.

Condorman
Condorman(1981)

This film cannot be taken too seriously or you will miss all of the fun and enjoyment that this film is filled with.

Robin Hood: Men in Tights

Full of one-liners, but very little time is spent on plot development, probably because everyone already knows the story of Robin Hood. Not great quality, but it can be entertaining.
