[Savant Links] [Year Five Report]

Tuesday January 27, 2015

Savant's new reviews today are:

Pork Chop Hill

  Lewis Milestone's last war film is also Gregory Peck's effort to show that combat can be worse when politics require sacrifice without the possibility of victory. A terrific cast -- Rip Torn, Harry Guardino, Woody Strode, George Peppard, Robert Blake and many more look good in this gritty dirt-in-your-face true story: Lt Clemons is ordered to hold a hill even though the Army refuses to reinforce him... and he only has 25 men left. It all happened in 'peacetime' 1953, during the U.N.'s Korean Police Action. Great B&W cinematography in an excellent Blu-ray encoding from Olive Films.

The Palm Beach Story

  Preston Sturges' wittiest comedy about romance between the ultra rich and those that wannabe is one inventive laugh after another with original characters in every scene. The Ale and Quail Club alone is worthy of a follow-up feature. Claudette Colbert wants to help her beloved husband Joel McCrea by ditching him to search for a millionaire-provider; she finds Mr. Right in Rudy Vallee's impossibly detail-oriented heir. Vallee comes with a gilt-edged sister called The Princess Centimilla (Mary Astor), who has her own pet consort named Toto. It gets crazier from there. Prime Sturges brilliance, the darn thing doesn't date despite being 73 years old. In Blu-ray from The Criterion Collection.


The Black Scorpion
Widescreen-formatted DVD-R

  Big bugs are bugging out all over, gobbling up cows and train passengers and tossing tanks and helicopters around like they were toy tanks and helicopters. Willis O'Brien's late career special effects are sensational, with fast-moving scorpion horrors skittering all over the landscape. Richard Denning and Carlos Rivas drop into a hole in the ground to wipe out the critters, which isn't easy when the big Black one is the size of... it's really big. With gorgeous Mara Corday; this WAC reissue reformats the movie in its proper 1:85 screen shape. In DVD-R from The Warner Archive Collection.


Gary Teetzel passes on the news that Universal will be giving us Blu-rays of the post-2001 sci-fi movies Journey to the Far Side of the Sun (Robert Parrish) and Silent Running (Douglas Trumbull) on April 7. We're grateful but naturally demanding... where's a domestic Blu of the unappreciated Joe Sargent movie Colossus, the Forbin Project? For that matter, where's the long overdue widescreen Blu of the good old classic This Island Earth? Did Mystery Science Theater convince Uni that it's not a serious contender? The good news here is that Universal's The Andromeda Strain will be out on February 17, as a Best Buy Exclusive.

What is coming that's good? Savant has screeners in hand for Kino's Black Sunday (reportedly legally kopasetic now), Cult of the Damned and Le Pont du Nord; Olive's A Hole in the Head, Shout! Factory's double bill of Jean de Florette & Manon of the Spring, Fox Cinema Archives' Seventh Heaven (1937), the MGM Limited Edition's DVD of The Monster that Challenged the World, The Warner Archive Collection's Incident, Running on Empty and Forbidden Hollywood 8... plus a title that seems all the rage in current horror circles, Cinedigm's Why Don't You Play in Hell?

PLUS, the English Region B Blu of 55 Days at Peking arrived, and I'm expecting a newer and Bluer Blue Underground Blu of Larry Cohen's God Told Me To in a day or two. So Blu! it's time to ramp up the reviews.

Thanks for reading! --- Glenn Erickson

Saturday January 24, 2015

Savant's new reviews today are:

No Highway in the Sky

  Nevil Shute's tense drama of jeopardy on a prototype passenger turbojet puts absent-minded aviation metallurgist James Stewart, movie star Marlene Dietrich and stewardess Glynis Johns in harm's way. It's an exciting ride, with a warm human story behind the technological details -- that sound like science fiction yet turned out to be 100% accurate. With Jack Hawkins, Janette Scott and Niall McGinnis as the pilot who doesn't know if his plane is about to disintegrate -- or if Stewart's scientist is crazy. The transfer looks GREAT... but I'm not sure yet where it can be bought. Part of a 3-Title James Stewart Collection, on DVD-R from Fox Cinema Archives.

The Weapon

  A boy finds a gun in the London bombing ruins and accidentally shoots his best friend; Army cop Steve Cochran wants to find the kid because the gun's a clue to a murder. The boy's mother Lizabeth Scott seeks help from the wrong man -- the gun's previous owner. Much of Val Guest's police thriller was filmed on the streets of London from the viewpoint of an 8-year-old; it's like stepping in to a way-back machine to 1956 London. With Herbert Marshall and Nicole Maurey. In Blu-ray from Olive Films.


The Bride Wore Black

  François Truffaut's 'Hitchcock' picture really goes in its own direction to tell a stylized tale of cold revenge. Angel of death Jeanne Moreau hunts down, seduces and murders the men responsible for the death of her husband right at her wedding; she uses their own vanity and hubris against them. Quite a different movie, with a very-non thriller look; the main Hitchcock connection is the music score by Bernard Herrmann. An extra included is a lengthy audio interview with Herrmann, sure to appeal to soundtrack addicts. In Blu-ray from Twilight Time.

Hello! I've got some fast links for a happy Saturday:

Trailers from Hell from Friday has our old favorite monster romp Tarantula, hosted by Joe Dante, who remembers it being too scary to watch back in 1955. I believe there's a widescreen Blu-ray of it available on Region B. TFH lets us see what its original widescreen framing is supposed to look like.

Form sort of the same direction comes a link that will please fans of classic directors: Duke Beers' YouTube page of Screen Directors Playhouse TV episodes. Each is directed by a theatrical name: Allan Dwan, Stuart Heisler, Frank Tuttle, John Ford, George Marshall, Frank Borzage. You just have to check in with the IMDB to see what was directed by who.

Savant friend Ed Godziszewski is a Toho Kaiju expert without peer; in this Scified article When Roses Attack: 25 Years of Godzilla vs. Biollante he talks about, among many things Big G, the unused commentary he recorded for Godzilla vs. Biollante. I've always liked that particular movie -- the surreal monster designs do it for me.

Constant source of great links Gary Teetzel directs us to a Sploid page showing photos of Incredible Spaceship Models made by an unnamed Japanese artist -- out of paper! You won't believe your eyes. The models are so realistic that some of the photos look photoshopped. A second Link takes you to the craftsman's own page. It just doesn't look like paper to me, but what do I know?

Thanks for reading! --- Glenn Erickson

May in the Summer
  Imagine, a movie in which a Jordanian-American visits her home country for a wedding, and the subject isn't war, terrorism or shooting foriegners with a sniper rifle. Cherien Dabis wrote, directed, produced and stars in a comedy-drama that is neither a vanity showcase nor a marginalized ethnic production. The funny, intelligent story sees the heroine dealing with her sisters, her absent father, and a devout mother having difficulty accepting her daughter marrying a Muslim. What's a modern, professional, secular woman supposed to do? I was very positively surprised. In Blu-ray from the Cohen Media Group.

World for Ransom
  Robert Aldrich's first independent feature is a real mess cobbled out of the availability of the crew, star and studio set of a low-budg TV show, given a terrific premise (and title) but with real problems in the script and production department. A shady adventurer in Singapore interrupts his obsessive love for his best friend's wife, to break up an atom-age conspiracy: a nuclear scientist is kidnapped, and held for sale to whatever world power will pay the price. Star Dan Duryea shouts his dialogue and Aldrich's direction is patchy at best, but we recognize his distinctive style motifs right away. With Patrick Knowles, Gene Lockhart, Douglass Dumbrille and Marian Carr. This precursor to Kiss Me Deadly has been a rarity for over forty years -- Aldrich fans will jump for it. In Blu-ray from Olive Films.

Breaking Away
  Peter Yates's story of working-class high school graduates in a university town is a crowd-pleaser that plays even better now than it did in 1979. Like American Graffiti, several cast members became notable names later. Dennis Christoper's aspiring racing cyclist affects an Italian accent to court a college girl, seeking an 'out' that his friends Dennis Quaid, Daniel Stern and Jackie Earle Haley don't have. Barbara Barrie & Paul Dooley shine as the boy's parents. The 'big race' at the finish brings audiences to their feet; the movie makes Middle American life seem hopeful again. With Robyn Douglass and Amy Wright. In Blu-ray from .

The Night Porter
  It sounds like 'Nazista' trash -- an ex-concentration camp victim re-ignites an insane sadomasochistic relationship with her former captor, a sadistic SS officer -- but it's actually a reasoned examination of the sexual politics of Fascism done with class and taste. Dirk Bogarde and Charlotte Rampling are weirdly perfect as the obsessed couple, in what amounts to an 'amour fou' of the damned. Director Liliana Cavani is on hand in an interview, but the disc's real revelation is a 50-minute Cavani docu about women resistance fighters in WW2... it's great stuff. In Blu-ray from The Criterion Collection.

The Girl Who Knew Too Much
  Mario Bava's attempt to mix travelogue romance, comedy and mystery-horror ends up as a bad comedy but an excellent Bava exercise in sophisticated visual horror. Letícia Román is the confused babe who witnesses a murder and John Saxon the handsome Italian doctor who wants to kiss instead of chase down a killer; Valentina Cortese is the landlady who helps the girl learn the 'too much' that she ends up knowing. Great B&W photography of select Roman locations. Comes with featurettes, interviews, trailers and a glossy illustrated souvenir booklet. A Dual-Format edition in UK Region B Blu-ray and PAL DVD from Arrow Video UK.

The Russians are Coming the Russians are Coming
  East-West tension is defused in this likeable family-oriented Paul Revere vs. the Russkies yarn: Norman Jewison and the Mirisch brothers play it safe, smart and sentimental. A Soviet sub runs aground just off a Massachusetts island, sparking invasion fears. The slapstick is as thick as the sweetness and plenty of individual gags are funny -- and in his first movie the Oscar-nominated Alan Arkin is a sheer delight, humanizing the entire show. Atop the long cast list are Carl Reiner, Eva Marie Saint, Brian Keith, Jonathan Winters, Theodore Bikel, Paul Ford and John Philip Law. The disc looks and sounds great too! In Blu-ray from KL Studio Classics.

  It's the most intense high-quality WW2 combat film in fifteen years. Battle-scarred tank commander Brad Pitt leads his tough crew through three horrendous combat actions in one day, finally committing to a slaughter that seems utterly un-survivable. It's fast, tough and gory as all get out -- and very likely a credible recreation of what the worst of tank warfare was like. Director David Ayer has a great supporting cast --Shia LaBeouf, Logan Lerman, Michael Peña, John Bernthal -- and terrific production values that include the use of a score of authentic, still-running tanks. We also get plenty of interesting extras along with input from actual surviving tank corpsmen. In Blu-ray + Digital HD from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment.

Bloody Sunday
  Before his Hollywood success writer-director Paul Greenglass took the big prize at Sundance with this convincing, compelling docudrama recreation of the 1972Bloody Sunday Massacre in Derry, Northern Ireland. It's the version of events as experienced by Civil Rights marchers that were opposed by Royal Paratroops; fourteen locals were shot dead and as many wounded. The complex story is told from the viewpoint of an MP organizer, showing how hooligans broke the peace and the occupying army attacked with live ammunition. A reissue from Paramount, this comes with two commentaries and two featurettes, with input from eyewitnesses. In DVD from The Warner Archive Collection.
