• The Sentinel (1977)

    I saw this one in the movies with my buddies when it first came out. I was fourteen at the time – and probably too young, and for sure too immature, to see it. I do recall, back in 1977, when we saw it…me and my buddy Roger, being fourteen, acting like Beavis and Butt-head making stupid references back to what we saw in the movie. That lasted for a while. It wasn’t until years later, re-watching it as an adult, that I learned to appreciate this one for its cast. Chris Sarandon, Martin Balsam, John Carradine, José Ferrer, Ava Gardner, Burgess Meredith, Eli Wallach, Christopher Walken, Jerry Orbach, and Beverly D’Angelo were in it. And, at the very end, Tom Berenger and Nana Visitor show up – as very young actors – albeit only for a minute or two.
