"This film is clearly targeted at a Middle America you rarely see on film ... everybody dresses like cowboys and there's line dancing going on. It's a super formulaic plot, but the whole thing has a strange atmosphere to it, like an Evangelical Christian film that dropped the religion. I found it hard to dislike, but almost impossible to actually like. "

"This cheap little showbiz melodrama was directed by Lloyd Bacon the year before he would helm the much better "42nd Street" and "Footlight Parade". There's nothing really special going on here, but it's nice to see a familiar group of second tier performers all thrown together into one short little picture. Manners is actually a lot more charming here than in any of the Universal horror pics he showed up in."

"This is the first film Lloyd made after leaving Hal Roach and striking out on his own. It's a really nice romantic comedy with Ralston being particularly appealing that ends in a really extraordinary chase sequence that utilizes every form of land transportation known to man at the time."
|80 65%||The Ghost and Mrs. Muir (1947) - Apr 08, 2021
"This beautiful supernatural romance seems to glide by and leaves you with the feeling of having watched something unexpectedly profound. It's beautifully shot by Charles Lang and has a glorious score by Bernard Herrmann. "

"I gotta say, I really detest these mid-90's attempts to make more Looney Tunes shorts. Yes, I know this one was actually directed by Chuck Jones, but ... so, you like "One Froggy Evening"? You want to see it play out 5 more times, but make less sense? Let's chuck in Marvin the Martian for a cringe inducing ending. You can't go home again."
|50 12%||Burial Ground: The Nights of Terror (1981) - Apr 07, 2021
"It's a cheap, nasty exercise is slamming tits and bad gore onto the screen. Here's the thing though ... it's kind of wonderful in it's own way. I'm NOT saying this film is "so bad it's good" (I will probably never say that of any film). This film is shoddy and stupid, but it delivers on it's basic, paltry promise with such energy and zeal that it manages to entertain to a somewhat meager degree. "
|80 65%||Sense and Sensibility (1995) - Apr 07, 2021
"Thompson does a really good job adapting Austen's novel into just over a couple of hours. My only real complaint is that Grant disappears for so much of the film that it's difficult to feel what you are supposed to when he stages a triumphant return. This seems like an odd choice for the English language debut of Ang Lee, but he seems to really relate well to Austen's world where nobody is really allowed to say what they are really thinking at any given time."
|90 86%||When We Were Kings (1996) - Apr 06, 2021
"Leon Gast was hired to document the proceedings, but his footage was wrapped up in legal tangles for 2 decades. By the time he was able to complete the documentary in the 90's, memories of the event had faded somewhat. It's an astonishingly great documentary that captures both the impact of this mammoth cultural event where the pinnacle of African American accomplishments in sports and music came to Africa for the fight of the decade, and the fact that this was one of the most incredible boxin"

"I really hate this film. I admire the work that went into the animation, but this is the kind of film that needs to charm you to work. I'm pretty much repelled by it. I find the models to be really ugly, and it just breaks the spell for me. Absent the charm, it's an hour and a half film with about 10 minutes of plot."
