From Peter Hyams, the acclaimed director of Busting, Capricorn One, Outland, Running Scared and Sudden Death, comes this suspenseful remake of the 1952 classic Richard Fleischer film noir. Screen legend Gene Hackman (The Package, Mississippi Burning) stars as an L.A. District Attorney attempting to take an unwilling murder witness (Anne Archer, Good Guys Wear Black) back to the United States to testify against a top-level mob boss. Frantically attempting to escape two deadly hitmen sent to silence her, they board a Vancouver-bound train only to find the killers are onboard with them. For the next 20 hours, as the train hurls through the beautiful but isolated Canadian wilderness, a deadly game of cat and mouse ensues in which their ability to tell a friend from foe is a matter of life and death. James B. Sikking (The Pelican Brief), J.T. Walsh (Needful Things), M. Emmet Walsh (Fletch), Susan Hogan (Phobia) and Harris Yulin (The Midnight Man) co-star in this action-packed thriller with top notch widescreen cinematography by writer/director Hyams.

Directed by Peter Hyams, who I've read got the nickname "King of the 2-1/2 Star Movie." I guess I'm pretty middlebrow because I've enjoyed his films such as 2010, Outland, The Star Chamber, The Presidio and this one. Heck, I even liked End of Days. Hyams is also the rare director who was his own cinematographer and sometime screenwriter.

Hey, wait a minute, I know him. Like, we were quite friendly back in the day when he was just a kid trawling USENET with a voracious appetite for classic movies. Now he's a hotshot historian getting books published and doing audio commentaries.

God, what have I done with my life? :laugh:

Something wicked this way comes in Orson Welles’s cinematic retelling of William Shakespeare’s immortal classic. The larger-than-life Welles (Citizen Kane, The Lady from Shanghai, Othello, Touch of Evil) adapts, produces, directs and stars as the titular Scottish lord who is tragically undone by his own vaulting ambition. Welles’s noir-tinged interpretation bubbles over with supernatural prophecy and murderous intrigue, effectively mixing the use of shadow and oblique camera angles (courtesy of cinematographer John L. Russell, Psycho) to achieve an ominous sense of a land in peril. Co-starring Dan O’Herlihy (Robinson Crusoe), Roddy McDowall (Planet of the Apes), Alan Napier (TV’s Batman) and Jeanette Nolan (The Big Heat) in her stunning film debut as Lady Macbeth, this iconic Mercury Production of The Scottish Play is an altogether stark and singular vision. This 2-disc Special Edition includes both the original 1948 119-minute cut, replete with overture/exit music and affected Highland burrs, and the 1950 pared-down 85-minute re-release which excised most of the accented dialogue.

This looks as if it could be terrible, but just got my hometown boy Leslie Nielsen, and I LOVE him. So I’ll check this out. Never heard of it, but I’ll have a look.

Oh, it is terrible, but if an Exorcist spoof with Linda Blair back as the possession victim, and Jesse The Body Ventura and Mean Gene Okerlund doing commentary over the final exorcism is your thing, its a fun ride. I love it. Can't wait to finally get a copy in OAR.

Glad Kino wound up with it after all this time.

Repossessed - clever title. Laughed out loud when I read the plot line & realized we weren't talking about a civil matter! Haven't seen this & don't know how I missed it, but I'll be getting it! Terrible? I'm sure it is, but with that story line & cast, I'll bite. In my day, that's the kind of story my friends & I would read in MAD Magazine & laugh our heads off as we read the bubbles to each other!:laugh:
