3.0 out of 5 stars Shiny Happy People, 19 Jan 2012
Psyche-Out is an obscure sixties film that is probably now best known for featuring Jack Nicholson in a role before Easy Rider made him famous. It's a tame and sanitised account of hippies at play that is corny, at times unintentionally funny but also, when all is said and done, endearing and enjoyable.

A Few Good Men [DVD] DVD ~ Jack Nicholson
Take that ever-reliable dramatic setting of a courtroom, add a little military sparkle, give the floor to Tom Cruise, then nearing the end of his cocky brat phase, provide a pantomime villain in the shape of Jack Nicholson and what you get is what we have here, A Few Good Men, an enjoyable Rob Reiner drama that almost lives up to its slightly inflated reputation.

Cruise and a curiously pneumatic Demi Moore play Navy lawyers tasked with defending a couple of marines charged with the murder of a colleague down in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. There's something darned fishy about the whole business and both Cruise and Moore are convinced that the men's commanding officer, Colonel Nathan… Read more
