And at least critics SHOULD know about the previous versions...


Just finished watching the film. What a terrible bore and waste of time

Re: Last Seen Movie - The Latest Movie You Have Seen; ratings

A Star is Born (Bradley Cooper, 2018) 3/10 Does the world really need yet another remake of this old chestnut? After all there have been versions of this story in 1932, 1937, 1954, 1973 (Bollywood) and 1976. Not sure about the world but Hollywood certainly needs another version because it knows that...

Re: Last Seen Movie - The Latest Movie You Have Seen; ratings

to the ludicrous take on old ladies called Book Club that to my horror I've discovered some little old ladies actually like. Ludicrous? Yes, the plot certainly is. But where else can you see so many famous female stars together on screen? That's the reason why some have liked it. So many older actr...

Re: At Eternity's Gate reviews

The picture looks photoshopped. Either that that or Fonda has had more surgery than she admits to. She looks more anorexic than well-conditioned in the film. Candice Bergen is the only one who resembles a real-life character in this thing. Candice Bergen easily had the most interesting role in the ...

Re: A Star is Born reviews

Also, I don't know why this movie was made. Why remake such an old, tired story without even vaguely offering a new perspective on it, a new approach? I'll never know I guess. At the end of the day, this is indeed exactly the point. A rather redundant piece. Since when has Hollywood averted itself ...

The Happy Prince (Rupert Everett, 2018). 8/10 The last destitute years of Oscar Wilde's life are presented with heartbreaking grimness along with flashes of his former life when he ruled London via the stage with his witty plays. His infatuation and affair with Alfred "Bosie" Douglas (Coli...

Nowhere to Go (Seth Holt & Basil Dearden, 1958) 9/10 Bleak but stylish film noir from Ealing Studios is more in line with similar films from France (early Jules Dassin and the films of Jean-Pierre Melville come to mind) than with its American counterparts. The convoluted plot, co-written by Holt...

The Insult (Ziad Doueiri, 2017) 8/10 Powerful if heavy handed film, inspired by the Lebanese Civil War, speaks a universal truth about humans who, in the absence of a sense of closure, are unable to control their political hatred and prejudice which continues to grow and fester in their souls. The s...

Blood Money (Rowland Brown, 1933) 8/10 Fast moving Pre-Code that was deemed a lost film until found 40 years later. Highly racy in content the screenplay thumbs a nose at all propriety and celebrates crime, under-age sexual assault, nymphomania, kleptomania and masochism. Imagine the uproar a film l...

1408 (Mikael Håfström, 2007) 6/10 John Cusack is good as a cynical writer bent on debunking paranormal activity in this adaptation of a Stephen King short story. As with most such films the set-up proves far more interesting than the visual effects which take over most of the story as the character ...
