This was kind of a fun little romantic-comedy-adventure flick featuring good performances all around, especially John Blondell and Glenda Farrell, kind of surprised Hollywood hasn’t poached this and did a remake at this point.
This Jackass: Complete Movie and TV Collection is just a re-packaging job done by the studio and as such, if you’re already own them you’re really only getting a more compact set. If you don’t have them, it is at a reasonable price and worthy of picking up.
Woman Chases Man is a charming romantic comedy thanks to the lead performances by Miriam Hopkins and Joel McCrea; it’s an incredibly fun flick. The DVD released by Warner Brothers is part of the “Samuel Goldwyn Classics” line.
A Notorious Affair is an amiable enough romance-drama but hardly special, though I did enjoy the performances from Basil Rathbone, known mostly for his portrayal as Sherlock Holmes from 1939-46, as well as the tremendous Kay Francis.
This is a case of quantity over quality here, though there are a couple of decent films like Vacancy and I Know What You Did Last Summer (if you like late 90s slasher horror) but otherwise these are movies previously released by Mill Creek re-packaged together.
ZOMBIES is pretty much a bumble-gum TV movie you’d expect from Disney and is perfectly safe for the teenaged crowd, though if you want a refreshing telling of the zombie genre, you can choose CW’s iZombie or Warm Bodies.
Shining Victory is a fine drama featuring two solid performances by its leads, James Stephenson and Geraldine Fitzgerald, the latter particularly. It’s by no means great but does have good dramatic moments and ideas.
The Prime Minister is an interesting drama with plentry of parallels to the incredible rise to the top of the UK government of Winston Churchill. It’s a bit long winded in spots but performances were decent enough.
Love, Lies & Records is a charming British drama featuring a charismatic performance by lead actress Ashley Jensen, though didn’t always capture my attention. The DVD itself is fine but the lackluster features was disappointing.
