The first two acts are eerie and intriguing, but the picture loses its focus -- and its way -- with the introduction of the third character.

Matt Brunson, Film Frenzy


No one would ever mistake this for a "feel-good" romp, but its potency is unwavering.

Operation Crossbow

Although it doesn't rank in the upper echelons of WWII-set "men on a mission" movies (see: The Guns of Navarone, The Dirty Dozen, Where Eagles Dare), Operation Crossbow gets the gritty job done.

Matt Brunson, Film Frenzy


Big Trouble in Little China

One of the more satisfying aspects of "Big Trouble in Little China" is its accessibility, bridging generational divides with bombastic confidence that you can't help but respect.

Derek Deskins, Edge Media Network

The Story of Temple Drake

Criterion's long-awaited foray into pre-code dramas shines a spotlight on a strange and emotionally rich gem too often reduced to a titillating oddity that provoked the stricter enforcement of the Hays Code.
