GirlhoodGirlhood (2014)Recommended
4 stars (Very Good) KARIDJA has a wonderfully expressive face & needs a minimal script. The screenplay is compact & if it dwells it is not wasting but meaningful. The fights look authentic & the music score is correctly used . All the girls perform well – move over males!
DVD $20, $29.95
One from the HeartOne from the Heart (1982)
2 stars (Good Try) Has some curiosity value.
Last of the Blonde Bombshells, TheLast of the Blonde Bombshells, The (2000)
3 stars (Good Enough) It is likeable without being soppy – there is a fine cast – the music is good and it is not too long.
EquilibriumEquilibrium (2003)
2 stars (Good Try) It is a very good action film – noisy with plenty of automatic weapons and a better than average body count.
DVD $25
Den of ThievesDen of Thieves (2018)
2 stars (Good Try) The shootouts are a bit over the top and the male posturing in vests adds to the entertainment but the tension when it does build is often lost because the screenplay is not tight enough.
DVD $39.95 | Blu-Ray $44.95
Shape of Water, TheShape of Water, The (2017)Recommended
3 stars (Good Enough) Although the screenplay weakens quite noticeably the set designs are excellent throughout. Richard Jenkins not for the first time gives a professional supporting performance but takes a backseat to asshole Shannon and the perfectly cast Hawkins.
DVD $24.95 | Blu-Ray $29.95, $49.95
SnatchedSnatched (2017)
2 stars (Good Try) This kind of thing has been done before but this is not an improvement on what has gone before.
DVD $34.95 | Blu-Ray $39.95
Ice Station ZebraIce Station Zebra (1968)
2 stars (Good Try) Patrick McGoohan adds interest to the cast but you need patience waiting for the exciting bits in the screenplay. It would be quicker to read the book which would then defeat the whole purpose of the exercise.
Sweet CountrySweet Country (2017)Recommended
3 stars (Good Enough) Its best is after the fugitive on the run bit is over. The subsequent court scene is extremely well handled – its script, performances, and props. Needless to say, the location shooting is beautiful.
DVD $39.95
Ain't Them Bodies SaintsAin't Them Bodies Saints (2013)
2 stars (Good Try) Made no impression on a second viewing after making no impression on a first viewing.
