Let's go to the tape and check out FFC's filmography since One from the Heart.
The Outsiders - Faithful and stylish adaptation, the problems probably originate with the material
Rumble Fish - Haven't seen it, always thought it looked interesting, anything with a single by Stan Ridgway and Stuart Copeland can't be 100% bad
The Cotton Club - A clusterfuck with interesting moments, one of Julian Beck's rare mainstream film appearances
Peggy Sue Got Married - Pretty charming even if Cage gets off the leash
Gardens of Stone - Haven't seen it; one of those films I always forget he directed
Tucker: The Man and His Dream - Sorely underrated, fine performances all around
New York Stories segment - Kill it with fire. Too bad, because the other two are aces
The Godfather Part III - Unnecessary, heavily flawed, but put it up against a lot of what came out this year and it looks like, well, Godfather 1
Bram Stoker's Dracula - A major, major guilty pleasure for me, and I will not hear it spoken poorly of
Jack - Have not seen, will not see
The Rainmaker - Probably the best Grisham adaptation; Coppola proving he can still point and shoot
Youth Without Youth, Tetro - Haven't seen. Few have.
So. A couple of bummers on there, nothing approaching the '70s greatness, but overall, not the worst track record ever.
