Within is a slow-plodding suspense-horror film that takes a bit too much time to get going but the finale isn’t half bad though hardly saves it, yet this might be worthy of a rental, not much more than that.
It is quite the time we live in for media, even if the physical is on the decline, as now after decades where it lived only on the bootleg forum, we finally get to see Superman: The Movie – Extended Cut aka the TV Version, restored in HD and although I’ll be sticking with the other version.
The Law and Jake Wade is a very well made western-crime-thriller with strong performances from its leads, Robert Taylor and Richard Widmark, as directed by veteran John Sturges (Gunfight at the O.K. Corral).
My Blue Heaven isn’t, in my mind, some comedy classic or anything but still a safe, inoffensive and enjoyable enough thanks in large part to Steve Martin’s larger-than-life performance and on-screen charms.
While The Sea Chase is an interesting viewpoint for WWII following the German side, it was utterly distracting seeing someone like John Wayne trying to pass himself off as a German captain, not even bothering with a fake German accent.
Where the Boys Are, on the surface looks like another 1960s-era beach party films but is a excellent coming-of-age drama/comedy and features some wonderful and even heartfelt performances from Dolores Hart, George Hamilton and Paula Prentiss.
Although Joe Versus the Volcano didn’t quite match up with my fond memories of seeing it back in 1990, it’s still a fun little romantic comedy that excels with its two charming stars and some truly funny scenes.
The Ballad of Cable Hogue is a wonderful western-drama that not only features an underrated performances from the great Jason Robards, who he failed to get an Oscar nomination is beyond me, but also a story about the change of times.
