ShaneBurridge wrote a review of Overnight. Imagine this: you're an average working schmoe who is one of the many hopefuls writing screenplays and sending them off to Hollywood. Out of the blue, your screenplay is picked up by a major studio and you find yourself behind the camera, directing your script with a professional cast and crew. Your... more

Genre: Documentary

Documentary follows the misadventures of Troy Duffy, director of The Boondock Saints.

ShaneBurridge wrote a review of The Goonies. The Golden Age for Kids' Movies must have been the 80s, when Steven Spielberg directed and/or wrote and/or produced a number of handsomely budgeted fantasy/action films that adults enjoyed and kids adored. This era gave rise to a generation with a long-standing devotion to movies like GREMLINS, ... more

The Goonies

Genre: Action & Adventure

Young misfits search for One-Eyed Willy’s gold in an effort to save their homes from greedy developers.

ShaneBurridge wrote a review of Jabberwocky. It's taken some distance to view Terry Gilliam's solo directing debut with an unbiased eye. Viewers expecting a wacky, anarchic Monty Python production (the misleading advertising didn't help) were disappointed upon the film's release - they'd already seen medieval squalor in the comedy team's ... more

Genre: Comedy

Medieval tale of a cooper who tries to capture a dragon.

ShaneBurridge wrote a review of Flash Gordon. Gaudy, campy, and yes, even flashy, this one-of-a-kind SF fantasy would have turned out to be a completely different affair if George Lucas had gotten his wish to make it (unable to get the rights, he created his own space opera from scratch instead). Undoubtedly Lucas' version would have derived ... more

Flash Gordon

Genre: Sci-Fi & Fantasy

The adventures of the famous comic-strip hero.

ShaneBurridge wrote a review of Cloverfield. With the proliferation of mobile phones and pocket-sized digital cameras, it seems impossible for anything in the 21st century to go undocumented. When the Hindenburg crashed in 1937 the event was immortalized with a single iconic image of it crippled and aflame despite the high presence of newsreel... more

Twentysomething New Yorkers flee from a monster.

ShaneBurridge wrote a review of Grizzly Man. Some background: In 2003, a bear killed and ate two campers in a federal reserve on the Alaskan peninsula. One of the campers, 46-year old Timothy Treadwell, had been visiting the reserve every summer for 13 years; his unfortunate companion on this last trip was a current girlfriend. I'm not sure ... more

Grizzly Man

Genre: Documentary

Werner Herzog’s acclaimed documentary about Timothy Treadwell’s life (and death) among the wild bears of Alaska.

ShaneBurridge wrote a review of Something Wicked This Way Comes. A failure or a success, depending on how you look at it: upon my first viewing, I opted for the former, upon the second I became more charitable. The problem, as apparent within its opening moments, is the marriage of the word WICKED with WALT DISNEY, which is not too promising a combination. First ... more

Something Wicked This Way Comes

Genre: Kids & Family

Disney version of the Ray Bradbury classic, about two boys battling the sinister forces behind a traveling carnival.

ShaneBurridge wrote a review of Speed Racer. After the phenomenal success of their MATRIX films, the Wachowski brothers kept audiences wondering about their next project with much anticipation, and surprised everyone when it turned out to be an adaptation of the 1960s Japanese cartoon SPEED RACER. It seemed a safe enough risk - the Wachowskis ... more
