JxSxPx posted a review of The Notorious Landlady

The Notorious Landlady

“The pedigree is strong with The Notorious Landlady, but the final product doesn’t add up to much of anything. The pacing is lacking, the production values are strangely muted, and the star power is either miscast or gone to waste.   Director Richard Quine’s 1950s comedy output was never lacki” read more

Strangers When We Meet

“Richard Quine is an odd choice for a marital infidelity soap opera. This material feels better suited to numerous other directors, not Quine’s more comedic strengths. Instead of bringing any energy into the material, Quine plays everything straight, and Strangers When We Meet is a bit of a pretty-” read more

JxSxPx posted a review of Vertigo

Vertigo

“If you want to know what staring at cinematic nirvana looks like, there’s a few films I could recommend: Jean Cocteau’s Beauty and the Beast, Orson Welles’ Chimes at Midnight, Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger’s The Red Shoes, and this warped tale of romantic obsession from Alfred Hitchc” read more

JxSxPx posted a review of The Eddy Duchin Story

The Eddy Duchin Story

“A typical biography of a popular musician in the studio era was all scrubbed clean, high-gloss, highly-fictional biographical bits in-between popular stars belting out the greatest hits of the artist(s) depicted. It can make for entertaining spectacle, and several great musical stars gave their grea” read more

The Man with the Golden Arm

“The Man with the Golden Arm has seen its reputation mellow in comparison to other addiction dramas from the era, namely The Lost Weekend. I suppose falling into the public domain and an avalanche of poor home video releases can do that to a movie. Shame as The Man with the Golden Arm has a lot to of” read more

JxSxPx posted a review of Phffft

Phffft

“Comedies of remarriage are a backbone of the screwball genre, and there’s several classics to be mined from the material (The Philadelphia Story and The Awful Truth come to mind immediately). Phffft is not one of these films, as it takes a couple amusing gags, strong comedic actors, and then stick” read more

JxSxPx posted a review of Pushover

Pushover

“In 1954, Kim Novak made her debut onscreen in this forgettable minor noir. The running time is short, but the story still feels bloated and stretched out, and none of the beats feel shocking or anything more than routine. It’s fine, but there’s nothing here worth a repeat visit.   Pushover pl” read more

Lady Day at Emerson’s Bar & Grill

“Lady Day at Emerson’s Bar & Grill is a five star performance in a three star vehicle. Audra McDonald, the reigning grand dame of American theater, gets to reprise her history making role, and her work is wondrous. Electrifying, terrifying, defiant, wounded, broken, and heartbreakingly fragile,” read more

JxSxPx posted a review of Political Animals

Political Animals

“Political Animals wants to act like a distaff West Wing, a thinly veiled account of Hillary Clinton’s failed 2008 presidential bid. A great foundation for a juicy story about politics, journalism, and family legacies in the public sector is laid, but then it veers off course. Wildly off course, in” read more

JxSxPx posted a review of Princess Arete

Princess Arete

“Positively lovely to look at, blissfully quiet for long stretches, and wonderfully feminist, Princess Arete should have been a slam dunk, an underrated classic just waiting for rediscovery. It was not to be, as the pacing drags all over the place, like a theme park ride that comes to a screaming hal” read more

JxSxPx posted a review of Anastasia

Anastasia

“Borrowing liberally from the Disney Renaissance template, Anastasia plays as fast and loose with historical figures and events as the Mouse House’s own Pocahontas or Mulan. There’s the basics of names, a few historically accurate trivia tidbits thrown in, some musical numbers, and cutesy sidekic” read more

JxSxPx posted a review of Horton Hears a Who!

Horton Hears a Who

“Whereas 1966’s How the Grinch Stole Christmas is a model of pacing and narrative economy in adapting a piece of children’s literature, Horton Hears a Who is a slightly bloated affair. Too many songs slow things down, and perhaps there just wasn’t enough story here to justify a full twenty-five” read more

How the Grinch Stole Christmas

“This is twenty-five minutes of absolute perfection. A hugely successful artistic marriage between the adaptor and source material, How the Grinch Stole Christmas is as much of a mighty, towering classic as the beloved Dr. Seuss book.   For me, this is perennial viewing. Christmas is never quite c” read more

JxSxPx posted a review of The Phantom Tollbooth

The Phantom Tollbooth

“Here’s an underrated and barely known quantity in Chuck Jones’ career. His lone feature-length film, The Phantom Tollbooth is his second dip into Norton Juster’s work, but with less explosive results than the adventurous “The Dot and the Line.” It’s still a very enjoyable and enjoyably s” read more

A Chipmunk Christmas

“Despite growing up during the 80s resurgence of the Chipmunks, I was never much of a fan of their helium voiced harmonies and sitcom-level shenanigans. I didn’t hate them (I still don’t, although I don’t recognize the grotesqueries they’ve been turned into by the modern live-action films), b” read more

The Pogo Special Birthday Special

“The creative tension and falling out between comic strip creator Walt Kelly and Chuck Jones mares The Pogo Special Birthday Special. It’s like listening to an orchestra playing while being ever-so-slightly off key the entire time. The individual pieces are all there, but they’re just not assembl” read more
