Princess Bride, ThePrincess Bride, The (1987)Aro Favourite
3 stars (Good Enough) Some of the set designs look a bit cheap but the story is entertaining and there are some beautiful shooting locations that more than compensate.
Monsoon WeddingMonsoon Wedding (2001)Recommended
3 stars (Good Enough) The characters are a non–event and there is not much of a screenplay but there are some great street scenes, the beautiful wardrobe of the ladies, and wonderful singing and playing.
DVD $25 $18.75 | Poster (G) $14.95
Earthly Possessions (1999)
3 stars (Good Enough) The screenplay does weaken out but on the way, there are some genuinely delightful segments accompanied by a very good blues track.
Happy EndHappy End (2017)
3 stars (Good Enough) Had trouble working out the family relationships & this didn't help understanding an untidy screenplay but it was all grist to the mill. Trintignant as a depressed 85 year old & Fantine Harduin as a depressed 13 year old were the life of the party.
SerpicoSerpico (1973)Recommended
3 stars (Good Enough) The New York street location shooting is a real highlight and firmly establishes time and place as the basis for a pretty good screenplay.
DVD $14.95 | Blu-Ray $19.95
Walking OutWalking Out (2018)
2 stars (Good Try) We are in "if it moves shoot it" country (although that could apply to some cities as well). A mans got to do what a mans got to do. The second star is for the scenery without the humans.
DVD $34.95
StockholmStockholm (2018)
2 stars (Good Try) There have been a few bank hostage dramas. In this, the Hawke character just gets annoying even though he is an idiot.
DVD $29.95
He Loves Me, He Loves Me NotHe Loves Me, He Loves Me Not (A la Folie pas du Tout) (2002)Recommended
2 stars (Good Try) Although it plays like a remake in parts it is worth a look.
DVD $15 $11.25
Shortcut to HappinessShortcut to Happiness (Devil and Daniel Webster, The) (2004)
2 stars (Good Try) It is a real curiosity piece in that I've never seen Anthony Hopkins struggle in a role before – not that the part was particularly difficult – in fact, it was way below his capabilities.
DVD $34.95
Hobbit, TheHobbit, The (1977)
2 stars (Good Try) The animation was pretty basic but it tells the story well enough (and in only an hour and a half).
