Classics & More on DVD (Sep. 17, 2019)

Here are our latest reviews of films on DVD.

Pre-2017 Film Reviews

Agatha

Rick Aragon @ Rick’s Texan Reviews (1979)

The Birth of a Nation

Rick Aragon @ Rick’s Texan Reviews (2016)

  • Excerpt: Putting aside the controversies that engulfed both Nate Parker and the film, dooming whatever Oscar hopes both had, this The Birth of a Nation would have failed on its own, a poor telling of what should have been a much more compelling story.

Captain Blood

Tynan Yanaga @ 4 Star Films (1935)

The Desperate Hours

Tynan Yanaga @ 4 Star Films (1955)

The Farmer’s Wife

Luiz Santiago @ Plano Crítico (1928) [Portuguese]

  • Excerpt: After his daughter weds, a middle-aged widower with a profitable farm decides to remarry, but finds choosing a suitable mate a problematic process.

The King of Comedy

Karl Delossantos @ Smash Cut Reviews (1983)

  • Excerpt: For a movie about a failed standup comedian, it’s difficult to watch. Rupert’s delusions of success are funny at first, but then grow cringe-worthy — and then dangerous. But there’s a third act pivot that makes this one of my favorite Scorsese movies.

Libido

Luiz Santiago @ Plano Crítico (1965) [Portuguese]

  • Excerpt: A young man goes with his wife to a spooky house, an inheritance from his father.

The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring

Rick Aragon @ Rick’s Texan Reviews (2001)

The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers

Rick Aragon @ Rick’s Texan Reviews (2002)

The Music Room

Rick Aragon @ Rick’s Texan Reviews (1958)

The Naked Dawn: An Edgar G. Ulmer Western

Tynan Yanaga @ 4 Star Films (1955)

Rancho Notorious: Chug-a-Lug

Tynan Yanaga @ 4 Star Films (1952)

Singapore Sling

Gregory J. Smalley @ 366 Weird Movies (1990)

  • Excerpt: Imagine a cross between ‘Laura’ and ‘Salo,’ as directed by a young Luis Buñuel dabbling in pornography, and you’ll have some idea of what you’re in for—but it’s slightly weirder than that.
