Enemy Mine (1985)
59%

Adjusted Score: 60865%
Critics Consensus: Enemy Mine extracts thrilling sci-fi pulp from Dennis Quaid and Louis Gossett Jr.'s chemistry and inventive production design, but an overextended story diminishes the power of its central duo's relationship.

#83
Adjusted Score: 58382%
Critics Consensus: Tora! Tora! Tora! is scrupulously accurate and lays out of the tragedy of Pearl Harbor with intricate detail, but the film's clinical approach to the sound and fury signifies little feeling.

Stargate (1994)

Bloodsport (1988)
