One of the highlights of my trips to the San Diego Zoo has always been the Panda exhibit. These large, rather timid-looking adorable fluff balls would always be sitting out watching the humans parade by while munching down on bamboo while the cub would be either sleeping up in the tree or having a jolly time playing within the [...]
Kismet Blu-ray Review The idea of making a musical which takes place in Baghdad would be a non-starter in the 21st Century, but it made perfect sense when Kismet was released by MGM in 1955. The story had actually been filmed as a drama several times before, the first being a silent […]
M. Night Shyamalan brings his Unbreakable trilogy to an end with Glass, a movie that, unfortunately, does not deliver on its promises.

Just Jaeckin’s Emmanuelle (1974), set a tone for many artful, soft-core, aka “erotic” films that would follow. Beautifully, and lushly photographed in Thailand and Seychelles, it’s a class act. Kino is releasing the first three films in the series, all starring Sylvia Kristel, who was featured in the hit Private […]

Glass concludes the Unbreakable superhero trilogy of M. Night Shyamalan with the anticipated showdown between the lead characters of Split(2016) and Unbreakable(2000) providing mixed results with a lead in to a spectacular battle that never arrives fully.
In the late 1960’s and early 1970’s, Hammer Films made a series of films that either dealt with the prehistoric/ancient ages or had elements of them mixed in. Made to capitalize on the success of She (1965), The Vengeance of She was Hammer’s second take on the characters created by […]

As is usually the case, Warner Archive’s new Blu-ray of the 1966 M-G-M film, The Glass Bottom Boat, is a stunner. What it has going for it, is some beautifully photographed scenery around Catalina Island. Other than that, the Frank Tashlin “comedy,” really isn’t much of one. The gags never […]
