Enormously entertaining Godzilla movie--Classic Kaiju flick!!
Beautiful work of Art a dreamlike voyage beyond time and space--Mesmerizing and Unique!!
This is clearly a throwback to the low budget horrors from way back when effects were done without CGI--Enjoyable indie sci-fi/horror comedy winner!!
A simple story which rings true--Tender love!!
Bizarre but cool Swinging London/British psycho flick--Twins make trouble!!
Years before the Corn, there were the Children of the Sea--Subtle masterpiece of Spanish terror!!
Van Heflin is a confederate officer disguised as a businessman, who is planning to raid the town of St. Albans, near the Canadian border... Will his mission make him betray the people that love him?--This is a true story...it began on the night of September 26 1864, in a Union prison stockade at Plattsburgh, New York. A good film that moves along at a pleasing rate, helped by a good cast, including a young Lee Marvin, an equally-young Richard Boone before his face became lined (but he still plays a troubled person) and the distinctive John Dierkes.... With a rebel yell, I cried more more more!!
7500 is a nice little thriller/horror/drama film to watch with its funny moments and jumpy scares with a twisted, but kind of predictable ending--If you expect to see some Asian style ghost popping up around places, you will be disappointed... For what it was, it was a fun movie!!
A Gothic horror film made terrifying by a foreboding atmosphere and genuinely surprising revelations in the plot--Superlative Italian horror!!
If you ever wondered where the laconic sensibility of such latter-day types as Jim Jarmusch and Michael Almereyda came from, here's a hint...No romantic adventure, but a struggle for survival --'RIDE IN THE WHIRLWIND', scripted by its star, Jack Nicholson, reduces "the Western" to abstract essentials... Allegorical in the very best sense!!
Superb Polish tale of Exorcism--Rare Diamond!!
Enjoyable Version of the Story, With a Very Good Cast--Better By Halves!!
Horror Anthologies have never been this strange.If Ed Wood Made Movies in the 80's ....--God bless the coked-out 80's!!
The Fragility of an Apparently Well Established Order--Satan walks among us...for a night, anyway!!
Robert E. Sherwood won the coveted Pulitzer Prize for his allegory-like satire Idiot's Delight. Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer purchased the film rights to the play, and commissioned Sherwood himself to adapt his play to the screen. The result is this astoundingly poignant classic, which features Norma Shearer and Clark Gable in the third and last of their radiant screen pairings... Wonderfully odd--A Russian Countess on the Swiss border is really an American vaudeville performer in disguise; she's not hiding from anything or anyone, she just wants to be bigger than life. Unfortunately, a second-rate song-and-dance man she once dated is staying at the same hotel, while wartime hysteria is breaking out all around them... Shearer and Gable ham it up to this idiot's delight!!
This film contains many elements that also generally don't work, at least for modern audiences. It's a silent movie filmed in black and white. The acting is consistent with old silent films or stage, with exaggerated expressions and movements and is even comical at times. It is clearly a very low budget affair with outmoded special effects. The strange thing is that all of this works very well with the story, making it perhaps the best screen adaptation of a Lovecraft story... Dreamlike, Phantasmagoric, Surreal--This movie is a little gem. The love, care and respect that went into its making, both for the story itself, and for the genre of silent film, makes "Call of the Cthulu" a triumph of honest artistic effort. The decision to make this a silent movie was a stroke of genius. The black and white silent format so well matches the dark and antique ambiance of H.P. Lovecraft stories... Cthulhu tale lives!!
A tale of various suburbanites and their sex lives coalesce into a hilarious comedy that was not only interesting, but very funny. From a woman with a rape fantasy, to a husband drugging his wife in order to be close to her again, to a woman who gets off on her husband's tears, each "bizarre" sexual fantasy is shown so nonchalantly. The tone of the movie isn't to show these people as deviant, but as everyday people trying to live their lives with different sexual appetites. And therein lies the Humor... It Takes Different Strokes--While there are moments that will make you feel like you'll die laughing, this is, actually, a very serious movie. It shows different sides to people through the one denominator that binds us all - our sexuality. This movie shows how far people will go in their selfish need to get their own satisfaction, but it also shows how far people will go to satisfy the ones they love. It shows the lengths they'll go to re- connect with the ones they love, and how easily they can lose contact with the world around them... A Mirror To Our-selves!!
'CAREFREE', directed by Mark Sandrich, a screwball comedy set to music, reunites the song and dance team of Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers for the eighth time in a sort of welcome change from their previous efforts: Astaire plays a doctor, psychiatrist by profession, rather than his usual lovesick American dancer, although the doctor in question DOES have a talent for dancing. Rogers, breaking away from sophisticated humor, makes her mark in broader comedy. She's been funny before, usually sassy with nifty comebacks, but this time in the dizzy-dame mode--Hilarious and very stylish, this spellbinding art modern musical is a real experiment in RKO craftsmanship. the dream sequences to the song "I used to be color blind" were originally filmed in color but the release abandoned because RKO couldn't get the tech specs right and the cost was going to be too high for the budget already set. It was a great idea and today might have made CAREFREE a more enduring success as there is no color footage of them as a dancing pair until 1949 at MGM... Not Their Best But Better Than Most Musicals: Yam-O-Rama!!!
If you can't sit through a relatively slow-paced movie without losing interest and wanting to play Angry Birds, this might not be the film for you. If however you do have an reasonable attention span and aren't afraid to engage it, this film will reward your patience many times over... Old School slow burner horror which is Restrained, unnerving, effectively eerie, and incredibly well-acted--Utilizing a vanishingly small cast remarkably well, the film relies on the believability of the dialogue and the fine acting of the two main characters to draw you ever closer into their seemingly idyllic world. I won't go into any specific detail, but it is a technique that pays off as things become more and more unsettling and a real sense of wrongness begins to pervade what was supposed to be a perfect romantic getaway in the woods... Don't watch it on your honeymoon, because, Lovey-Dovey turns into Ooey-Gooey!!
The quick 80+ minute film is really fun as the action keeps you engaged and entrenched from the POV of a passenger in the van with the four main characters. The performances can be over the top and at times under-noted but the dialogue is witty and very emblematic of early Tarantino/Rodriguez films-- This little gem certainly was a delightful surprise! For being a low-budget indie film it was violently entertaining with dialogue that was snappy. A "B" movie Exploitation that is going to be Fun for the fans!!
