    Lord Jim

    ★★★★

    Marlow: [Narrating] One hope kept Jim going – a hope common to most men. Rich or poor, strong or weak, who among us has not begged God for a second chance?

    This adventure story is not bad but could have been better.

  • Dr. Terror's House of Horrors

    Dr. Terror's House of Horrors

    ★★★½

    Dawson: Schreck? That’s a German word isn’t it? Means fear or horror.
    Dr. Schreck: A more exact translation would be terror. An unfortunate misnomer for I am the mildest of men.

    Amicus Productions seems to have bit off more than it could chew in the effort to shoehorn 5 stories into one average-length movie.

    The Time Machine

    ★★★★

    I’ve read the source novel and was looking forward to the movie. It is nowhere near as thought-provoking but still a fun special effects adventure.

  • The Great Race

    The Great Race

    ★★★½

    Maggie DuBois: And because I consider myself sexually free and morally emancipated, I am still a responsible, discriminating woman who does not intend to jump into bed with the first wavy-haired, muscle-bound, egocentric male who thinks he can seduce me by agreeing with some of the things I believe in.

    Any movie dedicated to “Mr. Laurel and Mr. Hardy” has set itself a high standard. Not met in my opinion.
