    Casper

    ★★★

    I had fond memories of Casper from when I was younger, so when I found the Blu-ray on sale for $5 I thought I might as well give it a shot. Re-watching it now, I am struck by what a bonkers movie this is.

    Since this is live-action, the screenwriters apparently felt it could not be ignored that as a ghost, Casper must be a dead child. At one point, Christina Ricci asks him, "What does it feel like to…

    ★★★½

    The weakest of the original three, but not as fully on autopilot as I had remembered, especially in terms of Soderbergh himself, who still seems to be having fun during the Mexican factory uprising and generally indulging the cast to get a little goofy with it.

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    I'd always meant to see Blast From the Past but never did until now, and I was surprised to find the movie less straightforward than I had expected.

    The most striking thing about the film, which is simultaneously its best and weirdest quality, is that it mostly plays the concept straight. On one hand, this means that Brendan Fraser's Adam is not a cartoon character, and that his lack of understanding about the real world is played with a surprising…

    Jack Black eats a piece of shit in this movie. I don't think you need to know more.

    ★★★★★

    Audio commentary by director Robert Bierman and actor Nicolas Cage.

    90 minutes of Bierman and Cage giggling in awe and confusion at what a ridiculous, ludicrous, insane movie they were able to get away with making, and it is glorious. Essential companion viewing to the film itself.
