"The film starts effective with the gruesome attacks, but once he gets arrested it's all downhill. As a Norwegian reliving those moment I saw on TV, the gradual understanding of this killer, the trial and his pathetic aftermath, this does little in bringing those nasty feelings back. Paul Greengrass brings a cold film and seems to be almost without understanding for the emotions this incident caused. Cardboard characters talking in cringe-worthy Norwegian-English."

"Amazing story! Truly fascinating. As for the documentary, some strong sides and some weak parts. Too bad most people involved in the experiment were either dead or hiding behind faceless corporations. This film really could have needed a proper reveal or deep insight of the study to be essential. "

"Obscure Italian musical of the operatic and romantic kind. Serviceable with proper vocals, but something which will easily be forgotten again."
|50 78%||L'assassin a peur la nuit (1942) - Oct 13, 2018
"Criminals hiding out in the province for a psychological crime drama with tensions rising and secrets getting out. Works pretty well, even if it might lack the big thrills. Definitely a well crafted French movie which hides under the radar of the more famous films made during the war years."
|70 96%||Der Hauptmann von Köpenick (1931) - Oct 13, 2018
"So so amusing! That it's based on true events makes it even more fantastic! Max Adalbert was such a likable character as the smart simpleton. While it's the absurd scenario that's the big joke, it's the little human touches surrounding our protagonist that makes this so lovely."

"A League of Their Own 1930s style, with a murder mystery and Rita Hayworth thrown in! They made Guinn 'Big Boy' Williams a police Lieutenant, which tells you how serious the studio took this programmer. Alright for a quick fix of baseball, dames and a little killing, but not one to take very seriously."
|40 61%||Tear Gas Squad (1940) - Oct 13, 2018
"Dramatic title which had little to do with what's going on here. A cocky nightclub singer gets involved with the Irish and charms himself into the police force. Corny as hell, in some ways in a good way. More singing than action."
|40 61%||The Outsider (1939) - Oct 12, 2018
"A little annoying that one with such a impeccable British accent as George Sanders has to talk broken English like a continental foreigner when he comes back to make a movie in England. The Outsider (1939) is decent, but far from essential Sanders. Lives completely on Sanders cocky nature, the complete opposite to the dull/down type of roles he usually does in Hollywood. More to see Sanders do something different than liking his character."
|50 78%||Los tres mosqueteros (1942) - Oct 12, 2018
"Mexico's funniest man, Cantinflas, spoofs The Three Musketeers. A real funny first half and a real letdown of a second half. This certainly didn't need to be 2 hours and 19 minutes. Had they went for the standard 90 minutes, this would be a comedy to recommend. But they really let the story go, even trying to go serious, which is a real bummer when it was a spoof to begin with."
|30 38%||The Boxcar Children: Surprise Island (2018) - Oct 12, 2018
"This feels like someones childhood holiday memory. Warm natured and out in nature. But regardless of how fondly someone relates to a this story, this was really poor writing for a feature animation film. Wouldn't keep the attention of any child."
