Here are our latest reviews of films on DVD.

Pre-2018 Film Reviews

ABBA: The Movie

Rick Aragon @ Rick’s Texan Reviews (1977)

  • Excerpt: ABBA: The Movie is really just an excuse to glory in ABBA: The Group. However, they’ve earned to right to be celebrated.

Alibi Ike

Rick Aragon @ Rick’s Texan Reviews (1935)

  • Excerpt: Alibi Ike is a delightful little baseball comedy.

Bikeman

Bavner Donaldo @ Cinejour (2018) [Indonesian]

Caligula

Rick Aragon @ Rick’s Texan Reviews (1979)

  • Excerpt: Caligula is not erotic but gaudy, vulgar, trashy, awful, pointless. Like many if not all pornographic films Caligula has a lot of sex but no plot to speak of.

Center Stage

Laura Clifford @ Reeling Reviews (1991)

  • Excerpt: …Kwan’s bold approach is something like analyzing a film in real time, his intertwining of feature scenes, interviews with actors and filmmakers from both his own film and those of Ling-yu’s plus clips from what remains of her work enriching the experience.

The Conspirators

Mark Leeper @ Mark Leeper’s Reviews (1944)

  • Excerpt: Although it starts out trying to be CASABLANCA, it turns into a film six feet wide and a quarter of an inch deep, and seems as episodic as an “Indiana Jones” film.

Cry ‘Havoc’

Rick Aragon @ Rick’s Texan Reviews (1943)

  • Excerpt: Cry ‘Havoc’ is a bit of a downer, even for a war film.

Gaslight

Rick Aragon @ Rick’s Texan Reviews (1944)

  • Excerpt: Gaslight is a well-acted albeit long film about the manipulation and ultimate revenge of the manipulated.

Michael Collins

Wesley Lovell @ Cinema Sight (1996)
