Gone in 60 Seconds: Car Crash King Edition

For pure automobile action, it’s ‘Gone,’ baby, ‘Gone.’


Action

Rod Lott
Compared to its 2000 big-budget remake, H.B. Halicki's Gone in 60 Seconds is deficient in slickness, star power, performances, plotting and humor. Yet the 1974 indie original decimates the Hollywood version as an all-around entertainment. Why? Two simple reasons, boiled down to numbers: some 500 vehicles wrecked and a 40-minute chase scene.

42

This Jackie Robinson biopic is a solid hit.


Drama

Phil Bacharach
In chronicling the real-life tale of Jackie Robinson, who broke Major League Baseball’s color barrier in 1947 when he joined the Brooklyn Dodgers, 42 is schmaltzy, sentimental and shameless. There is no dabbling in highfalutin niceties like subtext or nuance. Writer-director Brian Helgeland, who penned the hardly simplistic L.A. Confidential, keeps his focus simple and is content to let his hero worship fly.

Terror on a Train

Choo-choo-choose something else.


Thriller

Rod Lott
Not to be confused with the ’80s slasher Terror Train — but, oh, how I wish it were! — 1952's Terror on a Train finds Glenn Ford (Superman: The Movie's Pa Kent) as Peter Lyncort, a bomb diffuser whose home life with his spouse (French actress Anne Vernon) is currently as explosive as his work life.

Cockneys vs Zombies

You can't spell 'yuck' without the 'UK.'


Comedy

Rod Lott
I've been unkind to zombie movies of late, so let me hereby take this opportunity to apologize ... because my ire continues with Cockneys vs Zombies. It's like every other third- or fourth-tier zom-com you've seen (or ignored, hopefully). The only twist, if it can be called that, is the addition of thick English accents and senior citizens, neither novel.
