Happy Prince, TheHappy Prince, The (2018)
3 stars (Good Enough) The drama is shot in half light or more appropriately in the half dark – even in the daylight scenes, the camera goes in search of shadow. A somber but interesting piece of work.
DVD $24.95
ColetteColette (2018)Recommended
3 stars (Good Enough) The story is an interesting one and it deserves to be told. Although the screenplay got sidetracked at times it covered the main issue, that of her ghostwriting, okay. The production values were excellent.
DVD $24.95 | Blu-Ray $29.95
AsphaltAsphalt (1929)
4 stars (Very Good) The segments of men laying asphalt, the intersection traffic scene, the seduction scene, & the way lighting was used are memorable. The film was made toward the end of the silent era & no doubt it benefitted from the experiences gained over those years.
In This Corner of the WorldIn This Corner of the World (Kono sekai no katasumi ni) (2016)
4 stars (Very Good) It is a good example of animation being able to tell a story efficiently. Our plucky heroine is a delight and the animation impressive particularly the believable air raid segments.
DVD $24.95
Date With An AngelDate With An Angel (1987)
2 stars (Good Try) It is a bit too silly to be funny.
Turbo KidTurbo Kid (2015)Recommended
2 stars (Good Try) It tries a bit too hard & too often to shock its audience so it probably would be more appreciated as a comedy. Some of it is okay but there is always that underlying feeling that you've seen bits of it before and that it has borrowed from elsewhere.
DVD $25 $18.75
Don GiovanniDon Giovanni (1979)
3 stars (Good Enough) As well as a couple of memorable musical segments everything is well designed and wardrobed. The subdued photography of the outside locations uses soft colours and is superb.
White ZombieWhite Zombie (1932)Recommended
3 stars (Good Enough) It is one of the few zombie films where they have cast real zombies.
How to Eat Fried WormsHow to Eat Fried Worms (2006)
3 stars (Good Enough) It does well to stretch things out to an hour and a half.
DVD $19.95
I Capture the CastleI Capture the Castle (2003)Recommended
3 stars (Good Enough) There are good performances from the two sisters and Bill Nighy. As expected the production values are spot on.
DVD $15 $11.25
