The Best of 1999

   Recent Movie Reviews
I started writing a weekly film review column in the Valparaiso paper, The Torch, my junior year, and a lot of the following reviews are simply transcriptions of my attempts to bring culture to the masses...and we all know how well that works. There was a kind of mad order to the reviews at first, but now I'm slowly trying to make this more of a general review page, where I review any movie that particularly appeals to me. Probably the best place to look for reviews in this page would be towards the bottom, in All Time Favorites, where I've started to review movies I've loved since the days of my youth.

Fight Club *****
American Beauty *****
Toy Story 2 ****1/2
Bringing Out The Dead ****
Taxi Driver *****
The Insider ***1/2
Stir of Echoes ***
Being John Malkovich *****
It's A Wonderful Life *****
Wild Wild West *1/2

    My All Time Favorites
I'm starting to get around to reviewing my favorite movies of all time, but that's coming slowly, since I actually get paid for writing the movie reviews for the Torch. I just have to wait to review these until the spirit movies me....but here's the start of the list, in no particular order (yet). A great online collection of greatest films lists can be found here. But for now, here's mine.
