The House That Dripped Blood is a fun enough anthology movie that is mostly entertaining seeing this cast which includes Christopher Lee, Peter Cushing, Denholm Elliott and Jon Pertwee, even if they’re not all in the same scenes together.
The 15:17 to Paris is easily one of the worst movies of not only this year, but the past few years, and just a complete misfire for the usually great Clint Eastwood. While casting the real life heroes as themselves was a mistake, there were numerous other issues at play.
Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure is a fun sci-fi/comedy/fantasy excelling with the chemistry between Keanu Reeves and Alex Winter as well as a great performance from George Carlin in a supporting role.
This Drama 4-in-1 Collection is another fine compilation from Mill Creek especially considering the low SRP and getting some at least okay John Travolta movies, though I believe these all were already released on Blu-ray in the past.
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.
The 80s Overdrive: 6 Movie Collection is just another re-package job by Mill Creek, a few triple dipping at this point. I guess if you didn’t already own any of these movies, and considering its low SRP, might be worth picking up, otherwise skip.
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.
No Down Payment is a well done and underappreciated movie about 4 families living in 1950s suburbia and features some great performances, particularly Joanne Woodward, Tony Randall and Cameron Mitchell.
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.
