Reviews of Classic Films

Bachelor Mother

Kristen Lopez @ Journeys in Classic Film

Oscar History: It Happened One Night (1934)

Recent Home Video Releases

Time Bandits

Jordan M. Smith @ IONCINEMA.com

  • 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

Roderick Heath @ This Island Rod

  • 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

Roderick Heath @ This Island Rod

  • Excerpt: Brief and competent enough to be a painless and even modestly profitable viewing for horror fans.

The Day They Robbed Bank of England

Stacia Kissick Jones @ She Blogged By Night

The Glass Ceiling

Donald Levit @ ReelTalk Movie Reviews

Miracle on 34th Street (1994)

Kristen Lopez @ Journeys in Classic Film

Night Must Fall (1964)

Stacia Kissick Jones @ She Blogged By Night

The Preacher’s Wife

Kristen Lopez @ Journeys in Classic Film

Skidoo

Jamie S. Rich @ DVDTalk

  • 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

James Jay Edwards @ FilmFracture

  • Excerpt: Cinema Fearité Presents ‘To All A Goodnight’ – A Killer Santa Movie From A Time Before Killer Santa Movies Were A Real Thing
