Here are our latest reviews of films on DVD from 2010 and earlier.

Blazing the Western Trail

Dennis Schwartz @ Dennis Schwartz Movie Reviews

The Core

Tim Brayton @ Antagony & Ecstasy

  • Excerpt: A magical film: it never runs out of new and delightful ways to be completely inane.

Five

Following

Jamie S. Rich @ Criterion Confessions

  • Excerpt: Following is an entertaining crime yarn, and Nolan squeezes every penny out of his meager budget, but were this not a movie by the director of The Dark Knight or The Prestige, there’s a good chance none of us would be talking about it right now.

Lord Jim

Jamie S. Rich @ DVD Talk

  • Excerpt: It’s probably not the best compliment for Richard Brooks that his adaptation of Lord Jim made me really want to read the Joseph Conrad novel the movie is based on, but I can tell there is a better story beneath the movie’s stutters and stops. Or, if Brooks’ screenplay stays true to the author’s outline, then a better-told version of it.


Megiddo: The Omega Code 2

Tim Brayton @ Antagony & Ecstasy

  • Excerpt: The English language isn’t up to the task of demonstrating how richly, excessively campy [Michael York] is here.

The Omega Code

Tim Brayton @ Antagony & Ecstasy

  • Excerpt: One of the best bad movies of the 1990s.

Rembrandt

Jamie S. Rich @ Criterion Confessions

  • Excerpt: There are lots of memorable scenes in Rembrandt–the dark pallor that hangs over his conflict with the Civic Guard, the tensely funny barroom brawl with the peasants in the artist’s hometown, the sweet courtship of Hendrickje–scenes that fuse performance with material in a way that only cinema can.

Rouge Baiser

Science is Fiction: 23 Films of Jean Painleve

Dennis Schwartz @ Dennis Schwartz Movie Reviews

Sexy Line

Peter Nellhaus @ Coffee Coffee and more Coffee

  • Excerpt: The last Line movie by Teruo Ishii begins quite promisingly with a jazzy score and a title sequence made up of collages with pictures that appear to be ripped from the so-called men’s magazines. One can call this film noir, but there;s also the spirit of screwball comedy mixed in.

Silent Night, Deadly Night

Tim Brayton @ Antagony & Ecstasy

  • Excerpt: At least one of the better slasher films made in the States in the mid-’80s.

Silent Night, Deadly Night Part 2

Tim Brayton @ Antagony & Ecstasy

  • Excerpt: It’s hard to be prepared for how much of a nothing this movie is.

Silent Night, Deadly Night III: Better Watch Out!

Tim Brayton @ Antagony & Ecstasy

  • Excerpt: Very much at the level of quality you’d predict and anticipate for a direct-to-video slasher sequel from 1989.
