Red's Recent Reviews

The Neverending Story The Neverending Story PG
Nope, I didn't enjoy it. Perhaps in 1984 it was entertaining, but neither the acting nor the special effects were satisfactory. I gave it 2 out of 5 as the story has possibilities.
Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter R
I enjoyed the storyline of combining the Civil war and Abe Lincoln with vampires, but silver bullets or not, three good guys would not be able to defeat that many vampires on the train. So it turns into just an action film - and all action with little believability turns me off.

Red's Favorite Movies

Dances With Wolves Dances With Wolves PG-13
I only own two movies and this is one of them. Kevin Costner is John Dunbar - a soldier who lands up as the only soldier at an isolated frontier outpost. He sets about preparing the frontier for his fellow soldiers to arrive. In the meantime, he meets and interacts with the local natives. I guess this movie romanticizes the natives, but eventually Dunbar identifies with the Sioux. He learns to understand the needs and fears of the Sioux. The scenes with Graham Greene (the holy man) and Mary McDonnell (a Caucasian who was captured as a child and is native now) are the strength of the movie. They embody the a respect for fellow man. Because of this, in the encounter near the end of the movie between Dunbar and the soldiers, you cannot help but side with Dunbar - and hope for the Sioux when they come to rescue "Dances with Wolves". The ending is one of hope, where the movie could easily have been ended much more tragically.
The Shawshank Redemption The Shawshank Redemption R
One of my personal top ten movies. How can you not like a story about a mild-mannered man wrongly convicted of murder who can find a way to maintain his dignity in a place like Shawshank!
