My Review of ‘The Killers’ (1964)

It’s funny that I hesitate to call this a remake, but it is in fact a remake of the original film noir from 1946. Isn’t that interesting? A 1946 movie remade in 1964. See what I did there? 🙂 In … Continue reading

My Review of ‘Obsession’ (1949)

In this film, the premise is pretty simple. Clive Riordan, a wealthy London psychiatrist discovers his wife, Storm, is cheating on him with (dear God!) an American fellow chap named Bill Kronin. (I love the way, in old movies, that … Continue reading

‘Frogs’ (1972) (B-Movie Review) — Part One

Here’s a tasty treat from early 70s cinema! Except the poster is extremely misleading. We open with a view of the murky waters at some place in the southern U.S. A place full of trees hung with Spanish moss and … Continue reading

My Review of ‘Breaker Morant’ (1980)

I’ve always liked this movie, but I don’t think I fully appreciated what it was really about until now. It’s about three Australian officers serving with the British Army during the Boer Wars. The three of them face a court … Continue reading

My Review of ‘The Friends of Eddie Coyle’ (1973)

My Review of ‘Scarlet Street’ (1945)

This has never been one of my favorites of the film noir canon. However, given the chance to watch it again on TCM, I’ll grant you the movie hits all the right noirish notes. Our anti-hero is named (interestingly) Christopher … Continue reading
