The Chinese Bungalow (George King, 1940) 6/10 Suspension of disbelief allows us to enjoy a lot of stuff that comes out of Hollywood like the movies based on the Marvel comics. However, it's not only funny but takes time to be convinced by European actor, Paul Lukas, play a Chinese in this B-movie. I...

All three of these films had striking cinematography and I think deserved their nods.

Re: A Star is Born reviews

On the other hand, I was shocked and saddened to discover that there are people in their 60s who only know the story from the Barbra Stresiand version, which they (excuse me while I gag), love. Well, the Streisand version is still the only previous A Star Is Born that wasn't initially released befo...

Re: List of submissions to the 91st Academy Awards for Best Foreign Language Film

Sobibor (Russia) 7/10 This one deals directly with the Holocaust and in a rather all over the place manner. Its at times sentimental, exploitive, artful and crude. It certainly is compulsively watchable, excessively violent and genuinely moving. One scene that takes us into the gas-chamber is truel...
