    Where Love Has Gone

    ★★★

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Worth it for Bette Davis and Susan Hayward. Pretty crazy end for Hayward’s character and totally undeserved. And stabbing yourself to death with a chisel in the stomach…yikes!

  • The Valachi Papers

    The Valachi Papers

    ★★★

    Worth it to see Bronson play Valachi as a kid. It’s fine and enjoyable enough but it is trying for the aesthetic of “The St. Valentine’s Day Massacre” with the scope of “The Godfather” and it pulls off neither.

    The Brass Bottle

    ★★★½

    A fun movie and you can definitely see how it inspired “I Dream of Jeannie”

    Burl Ives is doing the most as a 3000 year old+ genie. It certainly is not culturally sensitive and has a lot of cringe inducing moments, but it was not as bad on that score as I had gone in thinking it might be.

  • The Last Duel

    The Last Duel

    ★★★½

    Looked amazing. The Rashomon like story telling device was effective on the whole but not perfect.
