Invaders From Mars (1953)
To watch this film you have to tap into your child and understand the limitations of its time. It gets to business almost immediately, all is accepted at face value and good and evil hold to their lanes. It has a great start and there are enough influences to accommodate its art but the martians are silly. 10-Oct-2019
Calamity Jane (1953)
The tunes are zippy, the production is cartoony and energized but the whole is detached from reality. It's overcompensating for a loss. 18-Jun-2019
It steps close to hysteria but the climb has its moments. 18-Jun-2019
Key, The (1958)
Heroic men accepting military suicide missions during WWII. Sophia provides the wife they would never know and a facsimile of a home, in return, she gets to eat. The stars lush, blowing every romantic nuance onto the screen. 12-Apr-2019
Middle Of The Night (1959)
He's an old codger chasing love, she's the beauty of youth that may never love but will be loved. Each side is insightful, frustrating and climactic. Frederic March beats his heart as many times as Kim Novak excites it. 06-Apr-2019
I Love Melvin (1953)
A bubblegum dream and a hoofer's delight. Debbie Reynolds' football dance is incredulous arduous training and Donald O'Connor is a foot master. 05-Apr-2019
A Face In The Crowd (1957)
"Bad News" becomes overnight sensation. Andy keeps his character insufferable, Patricia Neal tastefully shifts from intelligent administrator to emotionally duped and Kazan imprints it with raw emotional tremor. It still reverberates because we still apply the same politics without accepting its downfall. 28-Jan-2019
Santa Claus (1959)
The mind sizzles with filmic ideas but it rejects the flipping from good to evil. It's a concoction for idle thinkers. 26-Dec-2018
A grand illusion envisioned by perfectionists. Bergman contains her judgment and allows history to determine as Brynner showcases the array of his Jedi talent. The film commits to its deception. 24-Sep-2018
Mr. Imperium (1951)
Ezio Pinza strums his tenor and grandpapi squish as Lana sweeps hard diamond glamour. Together they only add up to mellow dexterity. 26-Jun-2018
Star, The (1952)
Bette is on full and Sterling Hayden knows how to put a woman to bed. 07-Feb-2018
All the elements for a classic are obsessively arranged, detailed and masterly stroked. The camera is infatuated with its subject and leading lady radiance but something seems amiss. James Stewart's weary everyday man and all-around good guy subbed for Hitch's trippy mentality when the story could have been energized by a man who easily slips into his pants, not one who needs them ironed first. 03-Jan-2018
Journey to the Center of the Earth (1959)
Mason implements arrogance to the professor whilst Boone plus Ronson saunter their commodities and Arlene Dahl inhabits feminist grace.
The film manages to sneak song into the adventure and it doesn't wither. The effects were an outline for better but the handcraft marvels.
It's not a jet but it doesn't move like a helicopter either. Nice pastime. 02-Nov-2017
Baby Doll (1956)
Baby Doll is not a child but a 19 year old bride to a man who bought her. Her only power is sex and her unwillingness to depart with it until her 20th b'day. A battle ensues between men that present her with the opportunity to dish it to the highest bidder.
Tennessee creates strong women whose vulnerability lies with the man who takes it. Baby Doll grows up but the system is incapable of providing her self sufficiency.
Williams is still a master of blatant provocation as Kazan is compelled to art.
Baker is raw talent with Grade A movie star presence. Wallach is gripped masher. Karl Malden plays the husband like the insecure man who has to buy love in a very expensive world. Mildred Dunnock's character power is stupidity because if the men notice her they'd be displeased. Ms. Dunnock is given a moment to showcase and she doesn't disappoint. I felt the burnout.
Like all big dick contests, one cock wins, it spirals into violence as white man burdens the town with his privilege.
The author decided not to cap it with a conclusion because we get to decide it.
I was watching a part of history that is no longer applicable because the men in our present, would like to revert to that.
Heavy on costume and design. Bombastic in role-play melodrama and blatant bitchery. 19-Sep-2017
