Tarzan’s Greatest Adventure is considered one of the better adaptation of the classic Edgar Rice Burroughs’ creation and indeed, it is a solid action-adventure flick with a wonderful performance by Gordon Scott and Anthony Quayle as the villain.
Chillers is a fun version TV safe version of Tales from the Crypt or The Twilight Zone and having the legendary Anthony Perkins hosting was perfect. This DVD release offers up so-so video/audio transfers and no bonus material.
Wings for the Eagle is a lesser war drama (and romance) saved mostly for the performances by Ann Sheridan and Dennis Morgan. This is the first release for the movie on DVD and probably would be a nice watch for fans of that era of cinema.
This double feature release of Age of Consent, with Helen Mirren, and Cactus Flower starring a trio of great talents in Walter Matthau, Ingrid Bergman and Goldie Hawn (who took home an Oscar for her role), makes for a fun time.
Nightwing and Shadow of the Hawk might not be great movies, but each has their own bit of charm, I suppose. The performances from the cast made the most out of the material, especially on Nightwing and I’d say they’re worth a look
For as well loved as Zombie is and the cult following it has garnered in the 40 years since its release, I still was genuinely surprised because more often than not, I usually am disappointed in these kinds of movies.
The Satanic Rites of Dracula is a fun little horror-thriller that places two amazing veteran actors together in Peter Cushing and Christopher Lee, the latter once again portraying one of the best cinematic villains in Dracula.
Ride had an interesting idea that never is quite fulfilled and a finale not entirely satisfying either. That said, the performances from the three leads were alright and writer/director Jeremy Ungar, with his D.P. Rob C. Givens, had a nice style to it.
