Mrs. Palfrey at the ClaremontMrs. Palfrey at the Claremont (2005)Recommended
3 stars (Good Enough) The screenplay is fine, if a little familiar in parts, but Dame Joan is acting royalty and you need no other reason for watching this.
Class of 1999Class of 1999 (1989)
3 stars (Good Enough) It is a worthy member of its genre with the characters performed by John P. Ryan and Stacy Keach of most interest.
Prisoners of the GhostlandPrisoners of the Ghostland (2021)
3 stars (Good Enough) It doesn't always work and maybe none of it works but it is entertaining, zanely different and I suspect the cast enjoyed making it.
Harry Potter and the Order of the PhoenixHarry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix (2007)Recommended
3 stars (Good Enough) There is a dream adult casting and they make it worthwhile even for nonfans of the franchise.
Finding Steve McQueenFinding Steve McQueen (2019)
2 stars (Good Try) Fimmel has been watching too many Paul Newman movies as his expressions resembled PN rather than McQueen. As with all watchable heist movies the action tended to be handled with a light touch.
Blu-Ray $34.95
Reservoir DogsReservoir Dogs (1992)Aro Favourite
3 stars (Good Enough) There doesn't seem to be a halfway house with the screenplay – it is either full on action or heavy on dialogue. Not great but there are some memorable segments and the casting and soundtrack are spot on.
Kiss Kiss Bang BangKiss Kiss Bang Bang (2005)Recommended
3 stars (Good Enough) Entertaining – an action film with a light touch.
DVD $20 $15
Lower Depths, TheLower Depths, The (Donzoko) (1957)
3 stars (Good Enough) It does not try to hide its origins as a play – the story unfolds in a limited amount of space, it is very heavy on dialogue and there is a good amount of melo/dramatic acting.
DVD $30 $22.50
When We Were KingsWhen We Were Kings (1996)Recommended
4 stars (Very Good) It includes quite a bit in its economical running time – as well as the fight it sets the scene with musical items, interviews, monologues from you know who, and describes the political scene in Zaire.
Diving Bell and the Butterfly, The Diving Bell and the Butterfly, The (Le Scaphandre et Le Papillon) (2007)Aro Favourite
4 stars (Very Good) It must have been a physically and mentally challenging part for Mathieu Amalric to perform. The director does well to keep things from being over sentimental and to mix the scenes to avoid too many being staged consecutively in the hospital.
DVD $25 $18.75
