Sleeper is pure comic genius at full throttle. Miles Munroe (Woody, of course) is the 20th century owner of a health-food store in Greenwich Village who wakes up 200 years later after a botched hernia operation. Hilariously acclimating to the world of the future, he hooks up with futuristic poet Luna....

There’s a nice Stephen King-type vibe in this moody, atmospheric chiller from writer/director Pascal Laugier, which boasts its fair share of twists, turns and surprises throughout — including some that change the entire complexion and direction of the story....

Given the plethora of low-budget 1970s documentaries exploring such phenomena as UFOs, Bigfoot, etc., it’s no surprise that Bram Stoker’s Prince of Darkness would become grist for the cinematic mill....

This glossy, opulent, 1932 soap opera, detailing the comings and goings at the Grand Hotel in Berlin, certainly lives up to its title, thanks to Edmund Goulding’s smooth direction and especially a star-studded cast of some of the biggest stars in the world at that time, all savoring the ripe richness of their roles....

Jack’s romance with devout neighbor Bertha (Mia Wasikowska) is pretty corny, and Gary Oldman hasn’t nearly enough to do as crime czar Floyd Banner, but Hardy’s towering turn as Forrest overrides all, and Forrest’s relationship with sullied showgirl Maggie Beauford (a never-sexier Jessica Chastain) has surprising dramatic resonance....

Wes Anderson’s charming, quirky, award-winning box-office sleeper provides an all-star cast with a terrific showcase, yet it’s two talented newcomers who take center stage. Sam (Jared Gilman) and Suzy (Kara Hayward) are kindred spirits who decide to run off together....

This silly but spirited send-up of Mexican melodramas, southof-the-border shoot-’em-ups, and conventional Westerns didn’t find much box-office favor but deserved to. Will Ferrell (also a producer) is fabulously funny as Armando Alvarez, the stalwart hero of this tale, narrated in appropriately grizzled fashion by no less than Kris Kristofferson....

The result was rejected by audiences and critics alike. It’s tacky and vulgar, yet there’s a misguided, thorny charm to the proceedings. Every so often, a film entertains in spite of itself. This is one of those films....

Heaven’s Gate is a fascinating piece of Hollywood history, marking the end of a studio era (and, essentially, a studio). But the movie itself… it’s an empty epic, and a tragically missed opportunity all around....
