By no means am I an expert on the monster horror subgenre and have enjoyed a few of the classics like Frankenstein and The Mummy, Frankenstein 1970 had a fun and unique premise, the execution was rather bad.
Our Betters is a charming little drama-comedy featuring a great performance from Constance Bennett, a woman ahead of her time and sadly died at the age of 60, though accumulated over 55 movies in her career.
A Woman of Affairs was technically based on the novel “The Green Hat” but due to censorship, the story was changed so much it apparently bared little resemblance (kind of makes me wonder if the book might be due for a new adaptation).
Starsky & Hutch is one of the better, for what it’s worth, TV-to-film adaptations as Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson were great together and the humor mostly landed and seeing this 15 years later was a lot of fun.
Tarzan’s Three Challenges is another decent adventure from the classic character by Edgar Rice Burroughs and while I’ve never been a big fan of the character, these movies did tend to entertain just enough.
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).
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.
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.
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.
