Reviews of Classic Films

Ben-Hur

Cole Smithey @ ColeSmithey.com

  • Excerpt: [VIDEO ESSAY] It’s worth sitting through four hours of Charlton Heston’s hammy pregnant pauses of strained dialogue and toothy grimaces just to savor the legendary larger-than-life marathon where single rider chariots, pulled by four-horse teams, race at a full galloping fury.

Roman Holiday

Donald Jay Levit @ ReelTalk Movie Reviews

Kristen Lopez @ Journeys in Classic Film

A Reason to Live, A Reason to Die!

Peter Nellhaus @ Coffee, Coffee and more Coffee

  • Excerpt: There may be a reason to live and a reason to die, but is there a reason to see this film? Probably more for the more dedicated fans of Italian westerns, than for the more casual viewer.

Other Reviews from 2012 and earlier

After Last Season

Gregory J. Smalley @ 366 Weird Movies

  • Excerpt: Huh?,’ ‘um…,’ and ‘whah?’ are all equally valid responses to ‘After Last Season.’

Captain Kronos: Vampire Hunter

Jennie Kermode @ Eye For Film

Hawk the Slayer

The Illustrated Man

Gregory J. Smalley @ 366 Weird Movies

  • Excerpt: It’s a perfectly serviceable science fiction anthology that will probably satisfy the average ‘Twilight Zone’ enthusiast, but it also leaves a lot on the table, since Steiger’s meaty Carl seems like he could carry a feature-length film.

Le Pont Des Arts

Dennis Schwartz @ Dennis Schwartz Movie Reviews

They Live

James Jay Edwards @ FilmFracture

  • Excerpt: Cinema Fearité Presents ‘They Live’ – A Fond And Fighting Farewell To ‘Rowdy’ Roddy Piper
