Movies starring James Remar

The Warriors

The Warriors (1979)   3/53/53/53/53/5

92 mins     Action , Thriller      

As I write this review of "The Warriors" it is 37 years since it was released and probably 30 years since I first watched it. The thing is that even when I first watched "The Warriors" it has never blown me away like it has o...

48 Hrs

48 Hrs (1982)   3/53/53/53/53/5

96 mins     Action , Comedy, Crime      

Long before director Walter Hill gave Eddie Murphy his movie debut in "48 Hrs." there had been buddy movies, from cops with cops to cops with bad guys but in many ways "48 Hrs." is responsible for many a movie which followed....

The Cotton Club

The Cotton Club (1984)   3/53/53/53/53/5

127 mins     Crime, Drama, Musical      

Theoretically "The Cotton Club" should be a stunning movie, well at least on paper. It had a brilliant director in Francis Ford Coppola, no other than Mario Puzo had a hand in writing it, Robert Evans produced it and that is ...

Fatal Charm

Fatal Charm (1990)   2/52/52/52/52/5

90 mins     Thriller      

For those who don't know the name Alan Smithee is used when a director doesn't want to put their name to a movie which is the case with "Fatal Charm" as Fritz Kiersch replaced Peter Medak as director but used Alan Smithee ins...

White Fang

White Fang (1991)   3/53/53/53/53/5

107 mins     Adventure , Drama      

Having watched the 1972 movie "The Call of the Wild" which was based upon a Jack London novel I knew what to expect from "White Fang" a Disney take on another Jack London novel. But whilst "White Fang" was the live action adv...

102 mins     Thriller

Miracle on 34th Street

Miracle on 34th Street (1994)   4/54/54/54/54/5

114 mins     Drama, Family      

Movie review Miracle on 34th Street (1994) remake of the classic 1947 movie "Miracle on 34th Street" with Richard Attenborough taking on the role of Kris Kringle and having to prove that he is the real Santa Claus....

The Quest

The Quest (1996)   2/52/52/52/52/5

95 mins     Action , Adventure      

Some semi interesting facts about "The Quest"; it was Jean-Claude Van Damme's directional debut, he also wrote the story with Frank Dux and is supposedly based on Dux's own experiences. The most interesting fact about "The Qu...

The Phantom

The Phantom (1996)   2/52/52/52/52/5

100 mins     Action , Adventure      

There are certain genres and styles of movies which you can recreate, you can take something from a bygone era and do it again with audiences loving the nostalgic feel. Unfortunately I don't think that is possible when it com...

Mortal Kombat: Annihilation

Mortal Kombat: Annihilation (1997)   2/52/52/52/52/5

95 mins     Action , Adventure , Fantasy      

I mentioned in my review of the original "Mortal Kombat" that I use to play the game but only out of a competitive need to get a high score and complete it, I was never into the whole story side of things. As such I kind of e...

Inferno

Inferno (1998)   3/53/53/53/53/5

90 mins     Action , Drama, TV Movie      

On first look and "Inferno" appears to be just another stupid made for TV disaster movie where in this case we have a flaming ball of rock falling through the sky towards Earth and heating up the place in the process. It has ...

What Lies Beneath

What Lies Beneath (2000)   2/52/52/52/52/5

130 mins     Drama, Horror, Mystery      

Ghost stories never go out of fashion and at the turn of the new millennium they were definitely back in fashion with several movies delivering stories with a spectral element. One of those movies was "What Lies Beneath" whic...

2 Fast 2 Furious

2 Fast 2 Furious (2003)   2/52/52/52/52/5

107 mins     Action , Crime, Thriller      

When "The Fast and The Furious" movie came out it wasn't too bad, full of adrenalin pumping action, fast cars, a reasonable plot and of course Vin Diesel. So it was no surprise that they decided to make the sequel "2 Fast 2 F...

Our House

Our House (2003)   3/53/53/53/53/5

89 mins     Comedy      

"Our House" or "Duplex" feels to me like director Danny DeVito trying to bring the dark humour of the Ealing Comedy to a modern audience, and by the various reviews I have read an audience which didn't appreciate it. It has a...

The Girl Next Door

The Girl Next Door (2004)   4/54/54/54/54/5

108 mins     Comedy, Drama, Romance      

A teenage boy discovers the girl next door who he is in love with is in fact a porn star, if that doesn't sound like an ideal set up for a teen sex comedy I don't know what will. The irony is that whilst "The Girl Next Door" ...

Ike: Countdown to D-Day

Ike: Countdown to D-Day (2004)   4/54/54/54/54/5

89 mins     Action , Adventure , Drama, TV Movie      

I'm no historian, I admit that history lessons at school bored me to death and as such my knowledge of World War II and the various important elements of it is not what you would expect from a Brit. The irony of this is that ...

Ratatouille

Ratatouille (2007)   4/54/54/54/54/5

111 mins     Animation, Comedy, Family      

I think I may be suffering from animated movie over load as I have watched a few recently and for everyone I watch the harder it becomes to be impressed by it. As such I reckon if I had watched "Ratatouille" having had a mont...

The Christmas Hope

The Christmas Hope (2009)   3/53/53/53/53/5

90 mins     Drama, TV Movie      

The Christmas Hope: Madeleine Stowe & James Remar star in this third movie in The Christmas Shoes and The Christmas Blessing series of movies...

Django Unchained

Django Unchained (2012)   4/54/54/54/54/5

168 mins     Drama, Western      

I have a love hate relationship when it comes to Quentin Tarantino's movies as there is no denying he is a craftsman who has such a knowledge of cinema it is staggering. The trouble is that when it comes to putting that passi...
