Diagnosis : Murder (1974) — Mike’s Take On the Movies ………. Rediscovering Cinema’s Past

This nifty British flick serves as a reminder that Christopher Lee did not star entirely in horror films during the 1970’s though one shouldn’t expect him to play nicely in this Hitchcockian thriller that has our leading man involved in murder and deceit. Directed by Sidney Hayers the film opens with a woman casually strolling […]

Paramount Pictures Delays Michael B. Jordan’s WITHOUT REMORSE to February 2021 —

By: John M Jerva At this rate, I don’t think any new films are going to be released theatrically as more and more titles keep getting more and more delayed.

The Invisible Man (2020) — Rob’s Movie Vault

Catching up: Leigh Whannell’s The Invisible Man, I can’t help feeling, was robbed of its shot at becoming a word-of-mouth blockbuster thriller that makes audiences scream happily.

Marnie (1964) Mini-Review: A Hitchcock Skeleton Key — A Voyage through Film

“It is not improbabilities of incident but improbabilities of character that matter.” – Thomas Hardy In Alfred Hitchcock’s 1964 film Marnie, Tippi Hedren’s title character is a kleptomaniac embezzler/con artist with crippling phobias of thunder, lightning, and the color red.

The Adjustment Bureau (2011) Mini-Review — A Voyage through Film

Before I watched 2011’s The Adjustment Bureau, I had concerns. A tale of a secret cabal covertly adjusting society at key pressure points in service of an enigmatic “Plan” seemed at risk of tripping conspiracy theory alarm bells, at a time when the fun has been taken out of conspiracies. But the tack the film […]
