Ebert Presents At The Movies: Reviews, Critics, Shows
For perhaps the only time in the entire six-film sequence, George Lucas’s stated ambition to marry ’40s-style derring-do with modern-day SFX really reaches fruition: ‘Big Sleep’ writer Leigh Brackett’s script may have been all but junked by Lucas and rewriter Lawrence Kasdan, but her old-world sensibilities are all over the finished movie. Nowhere is this more true than in the feisty Bogart-Bacall interactions between rakish rogue Harrison Ford and ice princess Carrie Fisher: their on-set dust-ups may be legendary, but their on-screen chemistry is unmistakable.

The setup – Arctic scientists find something vast and otherworldly buried in the ice – is magical, and the script (doctored by an uncredited Howard Hawks, king of the masculine-archetypes-in-peril movie) fizzes with invention. Best of all, director Christian Nyby creates a genuinely irksome sense of impending dread, keeping the creature in shadow for much of the film.
Skyfall (2012) - Rotten Tomatoes
Cinema in 2017 offered a respite from a year that started out for many as a dumpster fire and didn’t hesitate to keep pouring on the gasoline. Looking at the films below, it’s hard not to notice that so many of them focus on the past, whether it is the war-torn 1940s, an idyllic 1980s Italy, or the world of serious figure skating (or the European AIDS crisis) in the 1990s. I mean, the year’s best animated movie involved a kid investigating a mystery involving his great-grandparents.
