"BARBARY COAST" (1935) Review

I have seen a good number of television and movie Westerns in my time. But I find it rather odd that it is hard - almost difficult - to find a well known story set during the California Gold Rush era. And I find that rather surprising, considering many historians regard it as one of the most interesting periods in the history of the American Old West. Read more...Collapse )

"UNNECESSARY TIME PERIODS"

I am a big fan of the DCEU or at least the franchise's first phase. I am also a fan of the 2017 hit film, "WONDER WOMAN". I was also pleased to discover that the film has managed to convince Hollywood studios - especially Warner Brothers and Disney - to create more comic book movies with a female protagonist.

"THE FIRST GREAT TRAIN ROBBERY" (1979) Review

As I have stated in many previous movie reviews, I am a sucker for period drama. However, I am an even bigger sucker when said drama turns out to be something different from the usual narrative for this kind of genre. In the case of the 1979 movie, "THE FIRST GREAT TRAIN ROBBERY", it turned out to be one of those rare kind of films. Read more...Collapse )

"MURDER ON THE ORIENT EXPRESS" (2017) Review

When news of Twentieth Century Fox releasing its own version of Agatha Christie's 1934 novel, "Murder on the Orient Express", many people groaned. In a way, I could understand their reaction. This new movie would mark the fifth adaptation of the novel - the second theatrical version. However, being a major fan of Christie's story about a murder aboard the famed trans-European train, I was among those who did not groan. Read more...Collapse )

"THOR: RAGNAROK" (2017) Review

Until last fall, the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) has released three films each for only two of the franchise's characters - Iron Man and (allegedly) Captain America. With the release of "THOR: RAGNAROK", the God of Thunder became the third character to end up with three solo films. Read more...Collapse )
