Here are our latest reviews of films on DVD.
Reviews of Classic Films
Oscar History: It Happened One Night (1934)
- Excerpt: The filmic and cultural impact of the 1934 Best Picture Oscar winner cannot be overestimated
Oscar: You Can’t Take It With You
- Excerpt: Frank Capra won his third (and last) Directing Oscar for this zany comedy, starring Jimmy Stewart and Jean Arthur
The Siege of Firebase Gloria
Recent Home Video Releases
- Excerpt: Time Bandits reaches through the portholes of time with a free-wheeling freedom that allows him both the privileges of surrealism and the headiness to contemplate the philosophical and technological all within a wiley two hours. Though it’s no Brazil, the film remains a benchmark for the singular filmmaker.
Other Reviews from 2012 and earlier
Battle at Bloody Beach
- Excerpt: A low-budget offering from 20th Century Fox, Battle at Bloody Beach is notable as the only WW2-set movie Audie Murphy made apart from the autobiographical To Hell and Back.
Curse of the Crimson Altar
- Excerpt: Brief and competent enough to be a painless and even modestly profitable viewing for horror fans.
The Day They Robbed Bank of England
The Glass Ceiling
Miracle on 34th Street (1994)
Night Must Fall (1964)
The Preacher’s Wife
- Excerpt: Skidoo appears to be fueled entirely by flop sweat. Despite a remarkable cast that also includes George Raft, Frank Gorshin, Burgess Meredith, and Frankie Avalon, the group effort generates no comedic steam.
To All a Goodnight
- Excerpt: Cinema Fearité Presents ‘To All A Goodnight’ – A Killer Santa Movie From A Time Before Killer Santa Movies Were A Real Thing
