Bluesman


Hound Dog Taylor.

Movie reviews for youse to peruse

Wild Boys of the Road (1933) - ****. William Wellman's emotionally charged Depression saga stars perennial sidekick Frankie Darro in his best role. Don't let the syrupy finale dampen a very moving film.
Marnie (1964) - ***. Masochistic armchair psychologist Sean Connery marries kleptomaniac Tippi Hedren to study her or drive her insane or cure her (which ever comes first) in Hitchcock's glossy overlong showcase for his stiff leading lady.
Zombieland (2009) - ** 1/2. A teen coming of age flick, except they're surrounded by zombies. The patented gore is fast paced and film has some funny bits but still the sweetest zombie film I've seen. Shoulda been edgier.
Peach O'Reno (1931) - ***. The raciest Wheeler & Woolsey film may also be their best. Bert Wheeler tap dances, waltzes, sings, plays violin, and wears woman's clothes (rather too convincingly). Inspired pre-code nonsense.

"OOH baby, you can come to mama!"

Search For Beauty (1934) - ** 1/2. Pre-code shenanigans has Gertrude Michael gushing the top line while her binoculars zero in on swimmer Buster Crabbe's crotch. Cheese & beef cake abound in this naughty little time-killer. With a blond Ida Lupino, ditzy Toby Wing, and bare male butts.
Murder at the Vanities (1934) - ** 1/2. Pre-code backstage mystery with Gertrude Michael singing 'Sweet Marijuana', horny Toby Wing, ogling cop Victor McLaglen, Kitty Carlisle, Duke Ellington. Gals & gams galore!
Ghost Town (2008) - ***. Terrible title for this pleasant romantic comedy about a dentist who sees dead people. Ricky Gervais, Tea Leoni, Greg Kinnear somehow keep this fresh.
Hell Up in Harlem (1973) - *1/2. Tiresome, by the numbers Fred Williamson actioner benefits from Julius Harris as 'Big Poppa'. Gloria Hendry is under utilized as Fred's ex-squeeze.
Thieves Like Us (1973) - ***. Robert Altman's take on Edward Anderson's depression gangster tale has good period flavor, understated acting and lots of product placement for good ol' Coca Cola. They Live By Night is better, but this is worth seeing too.
