  • Star Trek: The Motion Picture

    “The Motionless Picture” is an apropos nickname. Even the action sequences are slow paced. It seems to be a direct sequel to the show, so they know you know what they know; I don’t know.

  • The Lady Vanishes

    The 1979 version. This was a remake of a Hitchcock classic, and was trashed by critics.

  • The China Syndrome

    Pretty face reporter and her activist cameraman accidentally runs into a major accident at a “nukular” power plant, followed by a cover up, the classic money trumps safety. She is brushed aside, since her brains were not why she’s there, while the cameraman is just an independent contractor.

  • Alien

    Classic. The goofiness and dated effects are masterfully hidden.
