Skate KitchenSkate Kitchen (2017)Recommended
2 stars (Good Try) It was okay but the screenplay didn't last the distance. Watch "Kids" (1995).
Rambo: Last BloodRambo: Last Blood (2019)
2 stars (Good Try) Stallone wrote the screenplay which opens with a close up of his features – I'm sure he thought he was the Marlboro Man the way he was prancing around with his hat & horse. Tears in the eyes handicapped the viewing of what followed after.
DVD $34.95 | Blu-Ray $39.95, $54.95
Knack and How to Get It, TheKnack and How to Get It, The (1965)Aro Favourite
3 stars (Good Enough) It is a Richard Lester film – fresh and always interesting. Rita Tushingham, who often depicts a working class lass, is an excellent casting choice.
Snow CakeSnow Cake (2006)
3 stars (Good Enough) I watched Rickman in "Something the Lord Made" which like this one could have fallen prey to melodrama but didn't & I think Rickman can take a lot of credit for that for both films. Snow Cakes other lead Sigourney Weaver gives another fine performance.
Le MeprisLe Mepris (Contempt) (1963)
2 stars (Good Try) Most of the screenplay is comprised of a married couple arguing over very little which really then puts too much onus on the rest of the screenplay to produce anything worthwhile.
Nicholas NicklebyNicholas Nickleby (2002)
4 stars (Very Good) The story has stood the test of time. There are outstanding performances from Tom Courtenay, Juliet Stevenson and Jim Broadbent.
China GirlChina Girl (1987)
2 stars (Good Try) The screenplay holds no surprises as it is familiar and predictable but the street locations look real.
CliffhangerCliffhanger (1993)
2 stars (Good Try) You can tell it was shot in the warmth of the studio as in the mountain scenes everyone is bareheaded – maybe there was something in their contracts about protecting hairdos.
Wild StyleWild Style (1982)Recommended
3 stars (Good Enough) Provided you are not a ratepayer the graffiti segments are well done and complement the music and dance scenes. The Bronx settings are perfect.
Inside Llewyn DavisInside Llewyn Davis (2013)Recommended
3 stars (Good Enough) The childish bickering between the characters got a bit tiresome but I suppose that was the writers aiming for realism. I didn't care what happened to the main character but I will remember the film because of the support performance of John Goodman.
DVD $34.95 $14.95 | Blu-Ray $39.95 $19.95
