    Enter the Dragon

    ★★★½

    An iconic milestone in both American and international cinema, Enter the Dragon is a transformative movie in the annals of action flicks. It's impossible not to watch this and think of the ripple effects it had through pop culture upon its release. In terms of effects on cinema, this is the Star Wars of Martial Arts films. To think that it premiered only after Bruce Lee's death, is a searing tragedy.

    Lee is iconic here, displaying his fighting skills in…

    The Lady Vanishes

    ★★★½

    Of all the Hitchcock films I've seen, The Lady Vanishes is perhaps the most conventional.

    This is no doubt one of the worst movies of all time. My friend described it as "an off broadway production of a student film". I think that's unfair to both off broadway productions and student films.

    The Invisible Man

    ★★★★★

    Hitchcock used to talk about suspense using the example of a bomb under a table. If the bomb goes off, that's action, if the audience knows there is a bomb, and is waiting for it go off, that's suspense.

    In Leigh Whannel's new film, the heroine knows about the bomb, and she's trying to warn everyone. The problem is, the bomb is invisible and nobody believes her. This is a bluntly feminist statement here. The tagline for this movie could…
