XANADU (dir: Robert Greenwald, PG) - Guest reviewer Tracy says, "As a fairy princess-focused child, I was completely enchanted by Xanadu. Olivia Newton Johns blonde locks cascade behind her as she roller-skates through the film, outfitted in ethereal, pastel-colored frocks that I wouldve killed to have in my own closet. Plus, the movie features a cartoon segment with Olivia and her love interest frolicking amidst giant flowers and mushrooms as well as a battle of the bands between an 80s glam rock band and a 40s wartime swing band. If youre looking for complex character development and plot arc in a movie, Xanadus probably not your thing. But if you want glamorous singing muses, early 80s fashion and the Electric Light Orchestra, Xanadu delivers."
9 TO 5 (dir: Colin Higgins, PG) - Michelle says, "I guess in 1980, Lilly Tomlin, Jane Fonda, and Dolly Parton could smoke a joint in your movie, and you could still get a PG rating. But apparently you had to be smoking something in 1980 to consider taking on your chauvinist boss. And you did that by trying to kill him, and when that didn't work, by kidnapping him. And then you could work with your other lady-friends to take over the office, empower yourselves, and maybe meet a nice man along the way who would propose to you. We've come a long way, huh, baby?"
MON ONCLE D'AMRIQUE (dir: Alain Resnais, PG) - Bart says, "HIROSHIMA, MON AMOUR never did much for me, and don't even get me started about LAST YEAR AT MARIENBAD. But if you get past his two calling card films, you'll find that Alain Resnais is responsible for a few genuine oddball masterpieces. This textbook on human behavior is one. It's structured as three case studies (one of whom is played by Gerard Depardieu) on the four motivating factors that, in various combinations, are responsible for every human action. Clearly an influence on the Charlie Kaufman/Michel Gondry school of filmmaking, this 'scientific' exploration has a surprisingly loving regard for its lab rat characters who are trapped by their own humanity."
