Pre-2018 Film Reviews

Black Holler

Mark Harris @ Black Horror Movies (2017)

Casablanca

Emanuel Levy @ EmanuelLevy.com (1943)

  • Excerpt: Casablanca, the 1943 Best Picture Oscar winner. was not very popular at time of release; it was decades later (in the 1960s) that the feature became a cult movie and Bogart became Bogey the International star

Mrs. Miniver

Emanuel Levy @ EmanuelLevy.com (1942)

  • Excerpt: A sentimental piece of WWII propaganda, William Wyler’s Mrs. Miniver swept the 1942 Oscar Awards, include Best Picture and Best Actress to Greer Garson

Paracelsus

Sarah Boslaugh @ TheArtsSTL (1943)

  • Excerpt: Lacking artistic freedom, Pabst may have decided that the best thing he could do would be to smuggle some subversive material into his films, right under the censor’s nose, as some American directors managed to do in the 1950s.

Pat and Mike

Sarah Boslaugh @ TheArtsSTL (1952)

  • Excerpt: The basic premise of Pat and Mike is very simple—does your significant other (or intended significant other) bring out the best in you? Or does that individual expect you to tamp down the best aspects of yourself, in order to fit into his or her already existing world?

Pitch Perfect 3

Wesley Lovell @ Cinema Sight (2017)

Pulse

James Wegg @ JWR (2017)

  • Excerpt: The final solution—most certainly a reversal of fortune—manages to bring the film over the finish line with a final dance and stare from Ollie that offers the hope of a better life ahead.
