Here are our latest reviews of films on DVD.

Pre-2017 Film Reviews

The Blair Witch Project

James Jay Edwards @ FilmFracture [1999]

Dead Hooker in a Trunk

Gregory J. Smalley @ 366 Weird Movies [2009]

  • Excerpt: Absolutely faithful to the exploitative promise of the title, but still not exactly what you’d expect, ‘Dead Hooker in a Trunk’ is a nihilistic feminist punk black comedy with an absurd script and experimental tendencies.

Dolly Dearest

James Jay Edwards @ FilmFracture [1991]

Intolerance: Love’s Struggle Throughout The Ages

Roderick Heath @ Film Freedonia [1916]

  • Excerpt: Aside from passages of the Babylon siege, which becomes interludes of pure spectacle, Intolerance retains its focus on the human level remarkably well; truly, Griffith’s feel for cinematic art seemed to intensify all the more precisely the more he was chasing a direct, near-physical relationship with his audience.

Passengers

Wesley Lovell @ Cinema Sight [2016]

  • Excerpt: There are many problems afoot in Morten Tyldum’s “Passengers,” a sci-fi spectacle starring Jennifer Lawrence and Chris Pratt, but a surfeit of production values is not one of them.

The Tough Ones

Peter Nellhaus @ Coffee, Coffee and more Coffee [1976]

  • Excerpt: I thought of White Heat and Umberto Lenzi’s documented admiration for Raoul Walsh while watching The Tough Ones.
