shadow of the thin man title

Shadow of the Thin Man (1941) [Warner Archive Blu-ray review]

Shadow of the Thin Man was the last Thin Man movie before World War II hit. In that sense, MGM rushing against the deadlines to get the movie done makes sense. Unfortunately, this meant that series or...

private lives of elizabeth and essex title

The Private Lives of Elizabeth and Essex (1939) [Warner Archive Blu-ray review]

The Private Lives of Elizabeth and Essex is a vintage Michael Curtiz movie. It’s also a 1930s romantic comedy about the Spanish vs. English naval wars. When the Irish get rowdy, Elizabeth has to...

7.8 Good
tender trap title

The Tender Trap (1955) [Warner Archive Blu-ray review]

The Tender Trap is better known for providing Sinatra with a new hit song rather than being a quality movie. What I find more ridiculous is that MGM released The Tender Trap and Guys and Dolls on the ...

one crazy summer title

One Crazy Summer (1986)[Warner Archive Blu-ray review]

One Crazy Summer was a film ahead of its time. But not too ahead, as comedy can be a very insular thing. Well, let’s put it this way. Savage Steve Holland came the closest to the Frank Tashlin m...

there was a crooked man title

There Was A Crooked Man (1970) [Warner Archive Blu-ray review]

There Was A Crooked Man was the older actors’ attempt to cash in on film revisionism. Kirk Douglas is made up to look like the younger actors that were breaking through to the counterculture. Pl...

FERRIS BUELLER TITLE

Ferris Bueller’s Day Off turns 35 in 2021 [Review]

Ferris Bueller’s Day Off turns 35 this year. So, Paramount saw fit to give us a Steelbook version of the movie. I would have loved to have seen a 4K UHD release, but give it a few months. Somewh...

Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull 4K title

Indiana Jones and The Kingdom of the Crystal Skull: It’s Still Bad Even in 4K (2008)

Indiana Jones and The Kingdom of the Crystal Skull isn’t a good movie. More importantly, it’s not a good Indiana Jones movie. 13 years after the film made its theatrical debut, it came to ...

8.6 Great
Prince of the City title

Prince of the City (1981) [Warner Archive Blu-ray review]

Prince of the City is a great Lumet movie, that has aged oddly for me. Treat Williams has never been better, but the whole nature of the film is how cops can get away with anything. When watching the ...

guns for san sebastian title

Guns for San Sebastian (1968) [Warner Archive Blu-ray review]

Guns for San Sebastian is the Spaghetti Western that was actually shot in Mexico. Taking place in the 1740s, it’s another Western that seemingly bucks most trends. Mainly because the film is equ...
