I just pulled out my DVD of Hammer’s PIRATES OF BLOOD RIVER last night and watched it through, finding it an eminently entertaining film with a very good transfer. Well-acted, great cast, nice music score, pleasant visuals, etc. And wow, Christopher Lee looks great in black! Tonight I will listen […]

More a sequel than an actual reboot, Ocean’s Eight has Danny’s younger sister taking up the torch after being released from prison.
Solo: A Star Wars Story, reminds me of any series of young teen or YA books that keep on coming, as there’s a perceived audience for them, but with evermore tired storylines, and little imagination. Disney’s latest Star Wars project, Solo, directed by Ron Howard is a gorgeously mounted production, […]
As ridiculous as it is, Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom is more like a two-hour amusement park ride, fun and thrilling while it lasts, but rather forgettable once the ride is over.
Despite the box office and Oscar winning success of A Man for All Seasons (1966), it would be several years before director Fred Zinnemann got behind the camera for another film, owing to issues with money and the decaying Hollywood studio system, which abruptly axed his next project – an […]
Terou Iishi’s intentionally provocative and unsettling adaptation of Edogawa Rampo’s The Strange Tale of Panorama Island plays like a cross between Erle Kenton’s Island of Lost Souls and Tod Browning’s West of Zanzibar. Horrors of Malformed Men, brought to us in a beautiful transfer by Arrow films is another example of unpredictable […]

Modern Family’s ninth season finds the series on a downward trajectory having pretty much squeezed out every bit of inspired comedy from its wonderful characters and their conflicted if loving relationships.
Had it not been for a supposed error in renewing the copyright for My Man Godfrey in 1964 (one can’t blame it on the 1957 Henry Koster re-make) we might have seen a restoration of this brilliant screwball comedy earlier. It’s only been in the past few years that the […]
