    I would have given this two stars except that there are great echos of the original film, the kills are spectacular, and some scenes are Romeroesque and reminded me of Shirley Jackson’s short story, The Lottery. Judy Greer as Jamie Lee Curtis’s daughter is also quite great.

    ★★★½

    Political incorrectness aside and with a few glaring plot holes, this film still worked for me. The cast was magnificent. Clint Eastwood's raspy delivery was starting to bud. George Kennedy's brilliance shone. The actress playing Jemima Brown, Vonetta McGee, was a sexy window character and wore very pretty clothes. Jack Cassidy was a great foil for Eastwood. The best thing about the movie was perhaps the cinematography. The mountain climbing sequences were obviously real and took my breath away. Loved it and will watch again.

    See Rock Hudson at his finest. This unforgettable film explores, in part, midcentury societal pressure and the resulting cages many find themselves trying to escape. See Grandpa Walton, Will Geer, as perhaps never before, orchestrating others’ fates. I’ll gladly see this again and again to examine every scene and gesture by its star-studded cast.

    The Tomorrow War

    ★★

    ALIEN meets STARSHIP TROOPERS meets WORLDWIDE Z meets DIE ANOTHER DAY, only with the worst dialogue ever. The aliens were very cool though. JK Simmons was surprisingly buff. Why he agreed to be in this complete rip-off is a mystery.
