Reviews of Classic Films

Beyond The Grave (2010)

Dennis Schwartz @ Dennis Schwartz Movie Reviews

The Devils

Laura Clifford @ Reeling Reviews

  • Excerpt: Bruegel couldn’t have captured the insanity better.

Hotel Terminus: The Life and Times of Klaus Barbie

Cole Smithey @ ColeSmithey.com

  • Excerpt: “Hotel Terminus” is a vigorous document made by a filmmaker (Marcel Ophuls) so hungry for satisfaction that every image and interview sequence spits with a personal sense of boiling outrage.

I Stand Alone

Cole Smithey @ ColeSmithey.com

  • Excerpt: [VIDEO ESSAY] “I Stand Alone” (Gaspar Noé’s feature debut) is as much a philosophical denunciation of humanity as it is a thought-provoking treatise on mental illness as a socially communicable disease.

Massacre Mafia Style

Peter Nellhaus @ Coffee, Coffee and more Coffee

Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb

James Plath @ Family Home Theater

  • Excerpt: Like Guardians of the Galaxy, Secret of the Tomb successfully balances humor and action, with crisp pacing, terrific special effects, and an emotional core that keeps everything on-center. It looks amazing on Blu-ray, and the 7.1 soundtrack that really fills the room. Secret of the Tomb is a true family movie, and a truly successful one that should get plenty of replays.

Kristen Lopez @ ClassicFlix
