Unbroken (Blu-ray)

March 28th, 2015 No comments

Recommended THE FILM: Hollywood has long dramatized the lives of unremarkable men with ease, but often stumbles when retelling the story of someone truly exceptional. Filming the life of Louis “Louie” Zamperini is no easy task. The former United States Olympian survived a plane crash in World War II, only to be stranded on a raft for 47 days before he was sent to a Japanese internment camp …

Stranger at My Door (Blu-ray)

March 22nd, 2015 No comments

Recommended Its title suggests a film noir, but in fact Stranger at My Door (1956) is a Western drama with religious overtones, a very offbeat film for B-movie studio Republic Pictures, which specialized in far more routine oaters. It's a strange movie, on one hand filmed in Republic's usual flat style for the most part, and the religious aspects are heavy-handed, annoying, and at times …

Convicts (Blu-ray)

March 19th, 2015 No comments

Recommended THE FILM: Robert Duvall gives a highly underrated performance as Soll Gautier, a senile plantation farmer, in Peter Masterson's Convicts , which is based on a play by Horton Foote. A young Lukas Haas plays thirteen-year-old Horace Robedaux, who comes to Gautier's plantation to earn the $12.50 he needs to pay for a headstone on his father's grave. Dementia takes a heavy toll on the …

Alice's Restaurant (Blu-ray)

March 19th, 2015 No comments

Recommended NOTE: The photos accompanying this review are taken from various internet sources and do not represent the quality of the Blu-ray under review. The Movie: The 1967 folk song “The Alice's Restaurant Massacree” is essentially a shaggy-dog story set to ragtime guitar, in which singer-songwriter Arlo Guthrie recounts his run-in with small-town law over illegally dumping a bunch of post …

March 16th, 2015 No comments

Highly Recommended The Movie: Chris Rock joined the upper echelons of the stand-up comedy game nearly twenty years ago, and even though he hasn't released an hour-long special in seven years, it's that work onstage that defines his career.

The Lady from Shanghai (Blu-ray)

March 16th, 2015 No comments

Highly Recommended “When I start out to make a fool of myself there's very little can stop me.” – Michael O'Hara I've seen Orson Welles's The Lady from Shanghai (1947) five or six times through the years, and still half the time I don't know what the hell is going on. Howard Hawks's The Big Sleep (1946) is a model of comprehensive linear storytelling by comparison. The Lady from Shanghai isn't …

At War with the Army (Blu-ray)

Recommended I'd held back on watching At War with the Army (1950), Dean Martin & Jerry Lewis's starring debut, specifically because that was their one movie that had fallen into the public domain. Years back I made it through about five minutes of one those Dollar Video versions, but it looked terrible and I stopped watching
