Breakdown: 25 years of full-throttle thrills, chills, and characters worth road-tripping into danger with
Is 1959’s The Horse Soldiers one of John Ford’s better westerns? No. Of course not. But that does not make it any less entertaining.
Treasure of the Four Crowns is certifiably insane. It’s also spectacularly entertaining, reveling in its inherent madness so thoroughly that it’s impossible not to be impressed by all of the inventively deranged absurdity.
Jack Palance and Martin Landau gleefully ham it up, and there’s a nifty plot twist at roughly the two-thirds mark that’s moderately surprising, but otherwise Without Warning is one of those low-budget 1980s oddities that never fully delivers on its promise.
Singin’ in the Rain: Celebrating 70 years of saying, “Yes! Yes! Yes” to a timeless musical classic
I’m not going to lie and say that Screams of a Winter Night is some long, lost horror anthology classic. It isn’t. But the film has so much go-for-broke, let’s-put-on-a-show charm that it’s not a huge deal that a lot of this doesn’t end up working particularly well.
Eastern Promises remains a polarizing stunner and features one of the best performances of star Viggo Mortensen’s entire career. Kino’s 4K presentation is immaculate, making this release an absolute must for fans to add to their collections.
Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy has only gotten better with age.
Apex is a bad movie. This Blu-ray release looks and sounds fine, but I still can’t recommend anyone pick it up, even as a curiosity.
