Come and Get It is slow and overly melodramatic, unfortunately losing a bit its great ecological message in the process in favor of all the regular melodrama, but its familial elements worked and the same goes for the dialogue and character interactions. It's a superbly acted film across the board with Walter Brennan himself stealing the show in his Oscar-winning performance.
Allegro Non Troppo features polarizing humor in the live-action intermission scenes, but overall those parts are pretty good. The animation is spectacular, colorful and providing exquisitely weird and memorable imagery throughout. It's a surprisingly well edited and structured package film which actually trumps ‘Fantasia' in quality in large part thanks to the more engaging, more tonally diverse stories.
The Bodyguard is an underappreciated flick which is definitely standard in its plot, overlong in runtime and particularly prolonged and boring in its second act, but the first act is quite romantic and fun whereas the third act has its well-executed thrills. The soundtrack is also solid. Kevin Costner is boring in his role, but Whitney Houston was simply stupendous for a debut film, and she's wonderful throughout.
In his debut film Fear and Desire, Kubrick definitely showcased his great potential through some very cinematic qualities despite a tight budget. The score is great, some of the imagery is memorable and the cinematography is pretty impressive with very interesting close-ups. But the film stumbles character-wise, acting-wise and especially in terms of the narrative as Kubrick crammed so many ideas and themes into a very brief runtime, leading to a messy, unfulfilled product.
