Review Summary
Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery is a hilarious send up of the James Bond franchise, especially the early 1960's ones. Mike Myers's strong script and performance is matched by a cast all on the same page and committed to the vision of said script. It's a great example of a movie that holds up over 20 years after it's release and is still as enjoyable (possibly more so) as it was when it originally hit theaters.

Review Summary
Starship Troopers is probably one of the most misunderstood movies of all-time. It simply took a decade for enough people to see that it was a lampooning of jingoistic militarism. The movie's acting is still a bit of an issue (although the campiness could be on purpose) but on the whole, this movie manages to say quite a bit. It's worth watching today more than ever and it's special effects hold up after more than 20 years. That is impressive.

Set in a future where a failed climate-change experiment kills all life on the planet except for a lucky few who boarded the Snowpiercer, a train that travels around the globe, where a class system emerges.

Review Summary
Snowpiercer is a masterfully constructed movie that is incredibly strong from the ground up. Working from a script that utilizes allegory as a way to show differences in class and how we view other people's inherent worth, the movie manages to turn something that could have been just a mindless, gory action movie into something with real depth and meaning. Great camerawork and excellent performances really help sell the world that Snowpiercer aims to show us. This movie deserves to be in the conversation of best sci-fi movies.
