Dirty Rotten Scoundrels might not rank high amongst my favorite 1980s comedies, but this is still a funny film even when you know the ending. The dynamic between Steve Martin and Michael Caine was great.
I’m not especially fond of the Howling franchise and this third entry, which doesn’t have much in common with the first two films, has a few cheesy scenes and an amusing premise that did make this at least an entertaining fantasy-horror flick.
WWII: Behind the Front Lines of the War That Shook the World might not be the best documentary sets out there about the war, yet there is some great information to glean from this and it utilized the archival footage quite nicely.
Judgment Night isn’t what one call a “smart” thriller or anything but it is awfully fun courtesy of its charming cast headlined by Emilio Estevez, Cuba Gooding Jr. and Denis Leary (with special mention to Stephen Dorff and Jeremy Piven).
Castle Rock: The Complete First Season is a fun and entertaining show and that’s coming from someone who generally isn’t the biggest fan of Stephen King; however as a movie buff, there are cool references to some of the King-adapted feature films.
Obsession was a rather bland mystery-drama which doesn’t have a whole lot going for it aside from some good cinematography however the acting from Cliff Robertson in the lead was weirder rather than endearing, and the film lacked De Palma’s flair.
This is a decent collection of Robin Hood films dating from 1946 through 1960 and any fan of the character and of these older films will find this collection a worthy pick-up especially at $15 which means about $8 on Amazon or in stores.
Satan Never Sleeps is an odd little history-drama especially with some of the humor inserted, but the story is fairly compelling and the performance by William Holden was, as always, wonderfully charismatic.
Antony and Cleopatra is a well done historical-drama especially considering it was Charlton Heston’s directorial debut and under major financial constraints, but Heston does a fine job despite being a bit too old while Hildegard Neil was at least a delight as Cleopatra.
Maniac may not be a favorite of mine nor do I hold it in as high regard as others, but there is certainly something to admire from Joe Spinell creepy performance to appreciation of some of the technical aspects of Tom Savini’s effects work.
