Pre-2017 Film Reviews

Albert Nobbs

Rick Aragon @ Rick’s Texan Reviews [2011]

Blue Jasmine

Rick Aragon @ Rick’s Texan Reviews [2013]

  • Excerpt: A Streetcar Named Desire as imagined by Woody Allen.

Great Expectations

Rick Aragon @ Rick’s Texan Reviews [2012]

  • Excerpt: Great Expectations is steady, respectable, beautifully filmed. Why then is it yet another bungled adaptation?

Howl’s Moving Castle

Gregory J. Smalley @ The Spool [2004]

  • Excerpt: Like Howl’s castle, this movie is cobbled together from mismatched parts; it looks unstable and threatens to tumble over as it rambles along, but master wizardry holds it together.

The Invisible War

Rick Aragon @ Rick’s Texan Reviews [2012]
