1997 Movie Reviews

Cool-Text-157049384088135

We have previously covered films from 1987-1996. Now we shall finish up the 90’s and take us to the edge of the NEW MILLENNIUM !! (That was far cooler, and scarier if you were around in the 90’s)

Relic_ver1

34: The Relic – Forgettable horror Flick taking place in a museum.

Fierce_creatures

35: Fierce Creatures – The follow up to “A Fish Called Wanda”. Not as good as the first, but still better than most movies out there. As before, Kevin Kline steals the movie.

36: Meet Wally Sparks – I don’t know why I saw this twice in the theater. But I did. I was always a sucker for Rodney.

Star_wars_A_new_hope

37: Star Wars: Special Edition – My first viewing of Star Wars on the big screen. It was a revelation, something I’d wanted to do all my life. No more can be said.

38: Dante’s Peak – The first of the Volcano movies, and the better. Pierce Brosnan versus the volcano. Good stuff.

Vegas_Vacation_Poster

39: Vegas Vacation – A lesser entry into the Vacation series. Still good enough for a few chuckles.

40: The Empire Strikes Back: Special Edition – A continuation of the experience of the first film. A great moment for movie goers of the 90’s.

Howard_Sterns_Private_Parts_Film_Poster

41: Private Parts – The Howard Stern story. I was definitely more into this guy when I was a teen, but he was an undeniable force in the 90’s.

42: Return of the Jedi: Special Edition – The circle is complete!

220px-The_Saint_1997_poster

43: The Saint – Val Kilmer as Roger Moore? I don’t think so.  😉

Volcano_ver2

44: Volcano – Tommy Lee Jones versus a volcano…IN LOS ANGELES!! A silly, but enjoyable movie.

220px-Austin_Powers_International_Man_of_Mystery_theatrical_poster

45: Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery – I am proud to have been one of the 23 people that saw this before it hit home video and became a THING.

220px-Fifth_element_poster_(1997)

46: The Fifth Element – Underrated film. It was cool, had a good design aesthetic  and an interesting backstory. Leeloo Multipass!

220px-JP2

47: Jurassic Park: The Lost World – Sub par sequel to Jurassic Park. Excellent effects, as always. Goldblum was good.

220px-Trial_and_error_poster

48: Trial and Error – Ok, I forgot this piece of shit existed. Sorry Brother Richards.

220px-Batman_&_robin_poster

49: Batman and Robin – So much has been said of this legendarily bad movie. I could not add to it. It killed Batman for nearly a decade. Clooney was not a bad choice though. I just wish he had a better movie.

Men_in_Black_Poster

50: Men in Black – Surprise of the summer for me. I thought for sure it would be crap. Both leads delivered great performances and it was wildly imaginative.

220px-Contact_ver2

51: Contact – great movie based on a better book. RIP Carl Sagan.

Air_Force_One_(movie_poster)

52: Air Force One – Harrison Ford! On a plane! Fighting Terrorists! He’s the President!

220px-Spawnmovieposter

53: Spawn – A neutered version of the excellent comic.

Event_horizon_ver1

54: Event Horizon – This movie will give you nightmares…for life.

220px-In_and_Out

55: In & Out – Kevin Kline plays an English teacher who does not realize he is gay, until outed by a former student during an Oscar speech. Good movie.

I_Know_What_You_Did_Last_Summer

56: I know what you did last summer – The next big slasher movie to take off after Scream.

Starship_Troopers_-_movie_poster

57: Starship Troopers – Better than you remember. Great propaganda satire. Great stuff.

Bean_movie_poster

58: Bean – Mister Bean is the man.

Boogie_nights_ver1

59: Boogie Nights – Greatest Porn movie ever made! lol. Really good though.

220px-Scream_2

60: Scream 2 – Good follow up to a classic.

Titanic_poster

61: Titanic – The big one! This sucker dominated the Earth for at least 6 months.

affiche-demain-ne-meurt-jamais-1997-4

62: Tomorrow Never Dies – A good Bond film, but a step down fromGoldeneye. The writing is on the wall. (which is a funny statement I made considering that is the theme to Spectre, the weakest of the Craig films)

215px-As_good_as_it_gets

63: As good as it gets – Jack Nicholson’s last great film. I hope he gets off his butt and gives us another great performance before it’s too late

Trial-and-Error-1997-film-images-fe4c5787-c375-4fdd-927f-3a9f5b0127e (2)

Trial and Error: Not good. Not good at all.

Star Wars Trilogy: A cheat, I know, but its the best thing in 97 cinema.
