One Sentence Movie Reviews: "Full Metal Jacket," "Star Trek: First Contact," "Rebecca"

Rebecca (1940, NR)

Rampant sexism and Olivier's cold persona keep his character from being as sympathetic as intended, and censorship takes some of the edge off the plot, but this is still very good Hitchcock.

Star Trek: First Contact (1996, PG-13)

This time-traveling, Borg-invading, Data-assimilating action potboiler is the second-best Trek movie (and the last good one, unfortunately).

Full Metal Jacket (1987, R)

The boot camp sequence is one of the best things ever in any movie, while the Vietnam part is just very, very good.
