A Heart in Winter

The French are so exhausting to watch. Nothing is overt, all subtle facial tics and large swoony eyes. (Original title: Un Coeur en Hiver)

The Kid

Is there anything more heartbreaking than Jackie Coogan pleading with the social workers not to take him away? Chaplin's own life story.


It's the songs (and Patrick Dempsey, natch) that make this film so enjoyable. Did you know the pigeons and rats are for real?

Battlestar Galactica: Razor

A pity this "special event" wasn't better thought out. Cain and Shaw are bad people, hands down, why should I care about them?

The Bear

Despite the unbearably (heh) cute little one, my first stop was Wikipedia to see how to repel an attack. (Original title: L'Ours)

Aliens: Special Edition

Mostly extraneous scenes, but just for the opportunity to see more of the cool crap Cameron built, it's worth it.
