I have an approach to reviewing films that I rarely share called Perfect Film/Perfect Movie. Basically it posits that a Perfect Film is one that I can’t fault any of the choices made in the execution of the film – story, cast, plot, direction, etc. A Perfect Movie is one that you can tune into at any time and something cool or interesting is going on, regardless of the craft involved. Obviously Perfect Films are a much smaller group than Perfect Movies, but still overall, they are elite clubs with few members.
At the top of my Perfect Films list reside Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, The Sting, Never Cry Wolf, and She’s Having A Baby. At the top of my Perfect Movies list rest Dawn of the Dead (remake), The Replacements (during a certain period of my life it seemed like it played non-stop on TNT/TBS and I would always tune into it when I would see it listed), Big Trouble In Little China, and now Cabin In The Woods.
