Alastair Sim plays the title character in what was considered for decades to be maybe the definitive version of the Dickens story, though I was a little thrown by the way the movie makes up a bunch of extra bits of Scrooge’s origin story for no discernible reason.
An ultra-cynical satire of the news media and America in general, this is a movie that very much feels like it could have come out in 2021.
A well-produced musical extravaganza starring Gene Kelly, with the music of George Gershwin, it still left me surprisingly cold.
Our Summer Games Film Festival continues with this biopic of a great Native-American athlete of the early 20th Century that doesn’t quite succeed at making any sense out of a messy human life.
There are several great performances in this Southern Gothic adaptation of a famous stage play, but the whole thing is really not for me.
I still think this enjoyable adventure story holds up, though the story of its shooting in the Congo (including possible accidental cannibalism) is now at least as famous as the movie itself.
A somewhat dated melodrama about people who are deeply unhappy despite being extremely pretty. One of them falls out of a rowboat.
