Classics and Other Films on DVD (Aug. 25, 2014)

Comments: No Comments
Published on: August 25, 2014

Here are our latest reviews of films on DVD.

Reviews of Classic Films

The Big Sleep

Roderick Heath @ Ferdy on Films

  • Excerpt: The Big Sleep, as its weird, pithily poetic title suggests, is far from realistic. It is indeed one of the most fervently delirious works from classic Hollywood.

The Bride of Frankenstein

Stacia Kissick Jones @ Next Projection

Call Her Savage

Jamie S. Rich @ DVD Talk

The Children’s Hour

Jamie S. Rich @ DVD Talk

  • Excerpt: This may be Audrey Hepburn’s finest dramatic performance. She offers strength and sympathy, but also heartbreak.

City Lights

Kristen Lopez @ Journeys in Classic Film

  • Excerpt: It’s a Classic Film, and Chaplin deserves his spot in the pantheon of comics.

Donkey Skin

Jamie S. Rich @ Criterion Confessions

  • Excerpt: Stylistically, Donkey Skin is fascinating. Demy establishes a kind of shabby chic.

Marty (1955)

M. Enois Duarte @ High-Def Digest.com

The Unforgiven

Jamie S. Rich @ DVD Talk

  • Excerpt: The only western that Audrey Hepburn ever made, The Unforgiven pairs the actress with co-star and producer Burt Lancaster and legendary director John Huston for a decent if not dazzling cowboy drama.

The Wind Will Carry Us

Jamie S. Rich @ DVD Talk

  • Excerpt: As with most of Abbas Kiarostami’s signature work, it’s as inscrutable as it is involving, relying on the audience’s powers of observation as much as that of the auteur.

This Week at the Movies, Part 2 (Aug. 22-24, 2014)

Comments: No Comments
Published on: August 23, 2014

Because of embargoes (those happy little restrictions on when critics can post reviews, good or bad), a lot of our critics aren’t able to share links with you until release day. Here are some last-minute reviews for this weekend’s upcoming films. We’ve kept in all the reviews posted yesterday as well so you can have more help in deciding what to see (if you haven’t already).

Our critics have been hard at work reviewing the latest films. Here is a look at what’s coming out this weekend (in select cities, check your local listings) and what else may be in theaters right now.

Opening: Aug. 22-24, 2014

Wide (United States)

If I Stay

Sin City: A Dame to Kill For

When the Game Stands Tall

Mark Dujsik @ Mark Reviews Movies

  • Excerpt: Every personal setback, medical emergency, or tragedy is just what happens in between one season, game, or practice and the next.

[New Today] Charlie Juhl @ Citizen Charlie

  • Excerpt: Imagine an entire season of side plots from Friday Night Lights shoved into two hours and you will have a good feel for this movie.

Frank Swietek @ One Guys Opinion

  • Excerpt: Workmanlike rather than inspired…well-intentioned but heavy-handed.

Expanding (United States)

Island of Lemurs: Madagascar

Frank Swietek @ One Guys Opinion

  • Excerpt: Apart from one element it’s a thoroughly likable, though hardly overwhelming, travelogue.

Limited (United States)

14 Blades

Nicholas Bell @ IONCINEMA.com

  • Excerpt: 14 Blades will most likely only entertain its core audience of martial arts aficionados. But kudos to anyone who can recall the intended purpose for each blade.

Are You Here

Nicholas Bell @ IONCINEMA.com

  • Excerpt: Originally titled You Are Here when it premiered at the Toronto Film Festival in 2013, it’s as if the refashioning of statement to question is posed for anyone left in the audience that stayed until the end credits.

Stacia Kissick Jones @ She Blogged By Night
Frank Swietek @ One Guys Opinion

  • Excerpt: It’s fairly certain that while watching it you’ll wish you were somewhere else.

Love Is Strange

The One I Love

To Be Takei

[New Today] William Bibbiani @ CraveOnline

  • Excerpt: If you don’t know George Takei, and you will never be asked to come over to his house for tea and a pleasant conversation, then To Be Takei is probably the next best thing.

Kristy Puchko @ CinemaBlend.com

  • Excerpt: To Be Takei is radiant with the joy of the man has captured the hearts and imaginations of untold fans. It left me smiling ear to ear, and with some serious food for thought.

Reviews: The Dog (2014)

Categories: 2013 Films
Comments: No Comments
Published on: August 21, 2014

dogReviews for this film from our members:

  • [New - 8/8/14] | Laura Clifford @ Reeling Reviews
    • Excerpt: a fascinating look at one of New York City’s most notorious and unlikely personalities.
  • [New - 8/15/14] | Mark Dujsik @ Mark Reviews Movies
    • Excerpt: The documentary, directed by Allison Berg and Frank Keraudren, is the study of a man in love with his own legend.
  • [New - 8/21/14] | Sarah Gopaul @ Digital Journal
    • Excerpt: ‘The Dog’ is the compelling and blunt portrait of an alpha male who gained notoriety when he attempted to rob a bank to finance his lover’s sex-reassignment surgery in 1972.
  • [New - 8/21/14] | Donald Levit @ ReelTalk Movie Reviews
  • [New - 8/7/14] | Kristen Lopez @ Cinema Sentries
    • Excerpt: Wojtowicz’s story is fascinating, but the flaw of a documentary with one predominant voice is bias smothers the filmmakers’ intention of burrowing under the surface.

Reviews: Frank (2014)

Categories: 2013 Films
Comments: No Comments
Published on: August 21, 2014

frankReviews for this film from our members:

  • [New - 8/14/14] | Laura Clifford @ Reeling Reviews
    • Excerpt: a funny, goofy movie with some serious things to say about art and madness, band dynamics, broken dreams and selling out.
  • [New - 8/21/14] | Sarah Gopaul @ Digital Journal
    • Excerpt: ‘Frank’ is the captivating portrait of a unique singer who leads his band’s unusual creative process from the inside of a huge, fake head.
  • MaryAnn Johanson @ FlickFilosopher.com
    • Excerpt: An askew, bitter dramedy of artistic pretension and creative desperation that has something sneakily marvelous to say about what it takes — and what it doesn’t — to be an artist.
  • [New - 8/22/14] | Jeremy Kibler @ The Artful Critic
    • Excerpt: Director Lenny Abrahamson and screenwriters Jon Ronson and Peter Straughan have something to say about the lines of art and commerce, as well as genius and insanity, and wrap both comments into a bizarro road picture that carves its own tonally controlled route with dark, sometimes broad humor and dark, sad character layers.
  • Matthew McKernan @ FilmWhinge
    • Excerpt: Frank has nothing interesting in it and it isn’t as funny or as emotionally involving as it might think it is – assuming any thought went into it whatsoever. Taken as a whole, it is just gibberish, unfocused and annoying.
  • Simon Miraudo @ Quickflix

Reviews: Land Ho! (2014)

Categories: 2013 Films
Comments: No Comments
Published on: August 21, 2014

land_hoReviews for this film from our members:

  • David Bax @ Battleship Pretension
    • Excerpt: Katz’s team-up with Martha Stephens (she made 2012’s Pilgrim Song, which I have not seen), Land Ho!, is full of respectable filmmaking acumen but contains none of the quirk that makes a movie rise above mere time-passing. It’s a pleasant enough experience on the surface but its lack of identity leaves a void into which rushes, whether intentionally or not, some of the more regrettable aspects of its lead characters.
  • Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat @ SpiritualityandPractice.com
    • Excerpt: A wonderful and quirky film about two quite different seventy-somethings and their adventures during a trip to Iceland.
  • [New - 7/24/14] | Laura Clifford @ Reeling Reviews
    • Excerpt: This intermittently funny, sometimes touching tale of two senior citizens who seize the day when they’re not getting on each others nerves is most consistent as an Icelandic travelogue.
  • [New - 8/15/14] | Tony Dayoub @ Cinema Viewfinder
    • Excerpt: LAND HO! never gets over-sentimental nor does it indulge in the kind of slapstick humor one would see in a geezer comedy like GRUMPY OLD MEN. Instead, the exploration of Iceland’s solitary alien landscape serves as an apt metaphor for our inquest into the inner life of these forever young old-timers.
  • Susan Granger @ www.susangranger.com
    • Excerpt: A charming comical confection and en enticing Islandic travelogue…
  • [New - 8/1/14] | Charlie Juhl @ Citizen Charlie
    • Excerpt: In Land Ho!, two elderly gentlemen travel across Icelandic landscapes but fail to mold a corresponding story. They are merely on a documented trip with some amusing conversations.

one_i_loveReviews for this film from our members:

  • [New - 8/21/14] | Nicholas Bell @ IONCINEMA.com
    • Excerpt: both exceptional writing and superb performances elevate this film into an irregular realm of its own.
  • [New - 8/21/14] | Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat @ SpiritualityandPractice.com
    • Excerpt: A remarkable, creative, and thought-provoking drama about treasuring love and sustaining marriage.
  • [New - 8/21/14] | Mark Dujsik @ Mark Reviews Movies
    • Excerpt: This is smart filmmaking, not only for the inventiveness of Lader’s central conceit but also for the dexterity from all involved to keep it grounded in reality.
  • [New - 8/21/14] | Dustin Jansick @ Way Too Indie
    • Excerpt: An innovative way to demonstrate how relationships tend to lose their spark over time.
  • [New - 8/21/14] | Kristy Puchko @ CinemaBlend.com
    • Excerpt: It’s happened to all of us. Everyone is raving about a movie with a “big twist.” You totally mean to see it. And right before you do, some jackass accidentally drops the bomb.
  • [New - 8/22/14] | Jamie S. Rich @ DVD Talk
    • Excerpt: An indie with an intriguing premise, The One I Love is a smart and surprising take on the romantic comedy. The script by Joe Lader adds an interesting dimension to the set-up of a troubled couple on a weekend retreat, one that the trailer only hints at and that I’ve seen other venues treat as a spoiler.
  • [New - 8/21/14] | Frank Swietek @ One Guys Opinion
    • Excerpt: Uses what initially seems a slight, even ludicrous conceit to treat of deeper relationship issues in an intelligent, sophisticated way.

Reviews: Sin City: A Dame to Kill For (2014)

Categories: 2013 Films
Comments: No Comments
Published on: August 21, 2014

sin_city_a_dame_to_kill_forReviews for this film from our members:

  • [New - 8/22/14] | Beth Accomando @ KPBS Cinema Junkie
    • Excerpt: In a sense, the film is much like Ava. I know it’s bad (or at least flawed) and yet I can’t help being seduced by it. The black and white with flashes of color is intoxicating, and now and then the clipped hardboiled dialogue sounds like poetry, but the parts are better than the whole.
  • [New - 8/21/14] | Mario Alegre @ Primera Hora [Spanish]
  • [New - 8/22/14] | William Bibbiani @ CraveOnline
    • Excerpt: The stories are obviously sad but the storytelling is obviously fun, and yet they work at odds with each other instead of striking a meaningful contrast to present a valid point. Unless the point is to say that the audience is just as vile Sin City’s villains and victims for taking pleasure in of all this mayhem, but even then, whose fault is that?
  • [New - 8/21/14] | Tony Dayoub @ Cinema Viewfinder
    • Excerpt: …a very expertly realized paean to a gritty kind of bygone glamour film blessed with a watershed performance by the talented Eva Green.
  • [New - 8/22/14] | Billy Donnelly @ This Is Infamous
  • [New - 8/21/14] | Mark Dujsik @ Mark Reviews Movies
    • Excerpt: [E]ven though Sin City: A Dame to Kill For isn’t as effective as its predecessor, it is still a worthy trip to a brutal and exciting world.
  • [New - 8/21/14] | James Jay Edwards @ FilmFracture
  • [New - 8/21/14] | MaryAnn Johanson @ FlickFilosopher.com
    • Excerpt: An unnecessary sequel that’s empty and arduous, little more than vignettes on vengeance and cruel parades of sociopathic power performed as gleefully ultraviolent shadowplays.
  • [New - 8/22/14] | Charlie Juhl @ Citizen Charlie
    • Excerpt: The story lines are a notch below the original, but the dialogue is just as ripe.
  • [New - 8/22/14] | Ben Kendrick @ Screen Rant
    • Excerpt: Sin City: A Dame to Kill For is a jumbled but still enjoyable followup that, for most moviegoers, arrives on the scene too late.
  • [New - 8/22/14] | Piers Marchant @ sweet smell of success
  • [New - 8/21/14] | Darren Mooney @ the m0vie blog
    • Excerpt: It’s a sin…
  • [New - 8/21/14] | Stefan Pape @ HeyUGuys
    • Excerpt: Sin City is by no means a place you’d wish to book a family holiday, but 102 minutes immersed in this melancholic world does just the trick.
  • [New - 8/21/14] | Frank Swietek @ One Guys Opinion
    • Excerpt: For this viewer, once around the block was more than enough for Rodriguez’s vacuous explosion of comic-book flamboyance, extremely scantily-dressed females, ludicrously hardboiled dialogue and ultra-pulpish mayhem
  • [New - 8/22/14] | Andrew Wyatt @ St. Louis Magazine
    • Excerpt: The film cribs slavishly from the aesthetic and compositions of Miller’s comics, but it nonetheless feels gleefully cinematic.

trip_to_italyReviews for this film from our members:

  • [New - 8/14/14] | Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat @ SpiritualityandPractice.com
    • Excerpt: More very funny impersonations from Rob Brydon and Steve Coogan.
  • [New - 8/14/14] | Daniel Carlson @ Movie Mezzanine
  • [New - 8/21/14] | Laura Clifford @ Reeling Reviews
    • Excerpt: We get more Michael Caine impersonations with garbled “Dark Knight” Christian Bale and Tom Hardy takes…While this sounds like recycling, some of it is side splitting, as is quick-witted punning on such things as a woman’s gait and kumquats(!).
  • [New - 8/21/14] | Mark Dujsik @ Mark Reviews Movies
    • Excerpt: In The Trip to Italy, it feels as if they’re simply doing a routine, and it’s the same shtick we’ve already seen.
  • Blake Howard @ Graffiti With Punctuation
    • Excerpt: The Trip to Italy is just an assault of laughs, whether it’s duelling impressions, sketches or bickering. However, it’s in that vulnerable state, when your face is sore from laughter and your ears are reverberating with Michael Caine’s voice that Winterbottom torpedos you with emotional truths. The people you love should keep you grounded, tease you incessantly and dwarf your accomplishments; because they know it makes you better.
