THE WATER BABIES (dir: Lionel Jeffries, G) - Michelle says, "Part of that amazing genre of animated story framed by a live action introduction and resolution (see DOT AND THE KANGAROO for another kiddie example), this is basically THE WIZARD OF OZ, with the same doubling of characters who exist in one capacity in the real world of the film and in another fantastical one in its parallel universe. Only instead of black and white versus technicolor foils, we get a drab, live cast paired with an underwater Disneyland of mermaids, Scottish lobsters, effeminate seahorses, and malevolent sharks. And I think for every child learning that he has a distinct destiny, it's gratifying to watch a brave  protagonist escape his world by diving into one in which he becomes a hero and must ultimately and autonomously choose whether or not he wants to go back home."

JAWS 2 (dir: Jeannot Szwarc, PG) - Greg says, "Alright, it’s taken me over 20 years but I’m finally willing to admit that this is not a very good movie. Although Roy Scheider is extra tan and sinewy this time around. And Ann Dusenberry is really memorable as terrorized teen Tina Wilcox. And who doesn’t love it when Jaws eats the helicopter?  Hold on. This movie is totally awesome."

THE SILENT PARTNER (dir: Daryl Duke, R) - Greg says, "If you like your Canadian heist flicks from the 70s to have Elliot Gould looking a bit frumpy, Christopher Plummer as a sexual sadist wearing eyeliner in the sauna and a whole lot of snazzy dialogue, you’re stoked. I won’t even get into the quick appearance from a very young John Candy."
MIDNIGHT EXPRESS (dir: Alan Parker, R) - Greg says, "Although I've never been in a Turkish prison, MIDNIGHT EXPRESS makes me feel like I have. And what exciting places they seem to be! There are bunk beds and a sunny yard to work out in and hang out with your friends. They'll even let have a kitten. Watch out for that Swedish guy, though. He'll try stuff with you."
HALLOWEEN (dir: John Carpenter, Not Rated) –  Greg says, "First of all, the creepy synthesizer music that director John Carpenter composed still freaks me out. Secondly, Haddonfield, Illinois looks way too much like Brunswick, Maine. Thirdly, I find Michael Myer's lack of motive for his murderous spree to be rather disturbing. Fourthly, I'm still making up for all the sleep I lost in 5th grade because of this movie!"
