Here are our latest reviews of films on DVD.
Pre-2018 Film Reviews
- Excerpt: AIRPLANE! is a lot of film packed into its all too scant 88 minutes.
Casting Blossoms to the Sky (2012)
- Excerpt: Casting Blossoms to the Sky is a quiet, mournful film, drawing analogies among various sources of human suffering without losing the individuality of those whose stories it tells.
Destination Moon (1950)
- Excerpt: DESTINATION MOON (1950), the film that probably should have led off the Fifties science fiction cycle, actually is still an enjoyable adventure film even if parts are a little dated.
- Excerpt: [Hanagatami is} It’s a real puzzle-piece of a film, but beautiful to see and well worth the effort.
Moments Without Proper Names (1987)
- Excerpt: Moments Without Proper Names is as good a cinematic introduction to Parks and his works as you will find.
Seven Weeks (2014)
- Excerpt: Seven Weeks is a fast-moving film (the actors often speak at a screwball comedy pace), full of quirky performances and surreal touches (like a marching band that pops up several times in the film), yet it also feels strangely calm.
