Beast from Haunted Cave
A handful of gangsters steal a treasure of gold bars but attract the attention of a monster living in the mine shaft. The beast pursues the thieves to their cabin hideaway and begins to murder them one by one. I don't usually mind a slow movie but this one is just plain dull. It's padded with some of the most mind-numbing conversations imaginable. These people will talk about anything and everything if it means extending the running time. I know the budget for the movie was low but the monster who is only shown near the end is laughable. The acting is generally wooden. This is a real bore to sit through and the pay off at the end is disappointing. Avoid.

Footsteps in the Fog
This is a truly superb Victorian drama starring husband and wife team Stewart Granger and Jean Simmons. Granger plays Stephen Lowry, a man who has murdered his wife and gotten away with it; Simmons plays his maid, Lily, who knows he did it. There are so many twists and turns that you'll never guess what is going to happen next. The acting is wonderful, as is the atmosphere, which captures not only the danger in certain scenes but the whole ambiance of Victorian London. Jean Simmons to my mind has always been underrated. She does an excellent job here as the quietly wily Lily. All in all an excellent movie that deserves much wider recognition than it actually enjoys.

The Skull
Dr. Christopher Maitland, an occult researcher and collector comes into possession of the skull of the Maquis De Sade by way of a suspicious dealer in such objects. Though warned by his friend to get rid of it, the evil influence of the skull begins to possess the mind of Maitland. Peter Cushing and Christopher Lee team up once more not for Hammer this time but for Britain's second house of horror - Amicus who were best known for their horror anthology movies. It's an effective story directed by Freddie Francis. The special effects aren't terribly convincing especially the wires pulling the skull along, but clearly Francis wanted to go more for mood and atmosphere, and succeeds when focusing on the terror of some of the characters. There is a little blood but not much else in terms of physical violence. Peter Cushing is marvellous as the lead character. Definitely worth checking out if you're a Hammer and Amicus fan.

Deep in the Heart
Handgun is an obscure little rape and revenge thriller that has more weight than many other movie in the genre and actually tries to make some points outside of it. Kathleen Sullivan is a young woman who moves from Boston to Dallas. While there, she meets a man and starts seeing him; but shortly thereafter, the relationship turns sour when she refuses her advances, and he rapes her at gunpoint. She gets over the initial shock by getting angry and later buying herself a nice big gun and learning how to use it, all with the intention of hunting down and killing the man who raped her... If you're expecting this to be similar to I Spit On Your Style in violence then you're in for a surprise. It's not as graphic, sleazy or nasty. The story points out America's obsession with guns throughout the country's history. The movie boils down to a good conclusion, despite the fact that it's obvious it was going to turn out that way but it does pull an interesting little twist out at the end which is decent. Overall, I'm not surprised that this movie isn't well known but it's well worth tracking down.

The Swordsman
This movie finds Lorenzo Lamas cast as a LAPD detective who is having some incredibly realistic dreams involving him in an ancient setting participating in a duel. When he gets assigned to a robbery/homicide where the sword of Alexander The Great is stolen those dreams take on an even greater clarity. A rather slow-moving movie and not much helped by the tentative acting of Lamas who seems unsure of himself here. Oddly there is little action. There is some worthwhile swordplay about halfway through, though it's a bit stagey for my taste. The big climax is a bust as the villain played by Michael Champion was apparently uncomfortable with extended swordplay sequences. It's a watchable enough movie but it's forgettable.

Last Holiday
A forgotten gem starring the great Alec Guinness. He plays an under appreciated worker who is told he has a terminal disease so he packs his job up and goes on one last holiday to spend his hard earned money. Once at the hotel he finds new friends, gets offers for new jobs and sees his luck is in when he wins at a horse race and at cards. This movie is the story of a man who believes he is dying and decides to go out in style - living it up among the wealthy and well-bred. After all, he figures, he certainly won't need the money after he's gone! The marvelous acting and experiences among the upper crust make this a must-see. However, be forewarned, this is an incredibly depressing movie. The haunting violin theme adds to the gloom. Alec Guinness delivers a perfect performance of George Bird, our main character whose luck changes from bad to worse to good to better and back again more than once throughout the movie. This is an excellent moody masterpiece that needs to be seen more by people.

The Limehouse Golem
The Limehouse Golem has a great deal going for it. It is based on the novel by Peter Ackroyd and then turned into a tight, witty and fairly gripping script by Jane Goldman. Bill Nighy takes the male lead as Inspector Kildare. He delivers a good performance of a gentle but tortured soul in a harsh world. Olivia Cooke as the protagonist also gives a good portrayal, mixing light and dark, truth and lies with a fine touch. Do not be misled by the Golem in the title. This is neither a horror story nor fantasy. It is a drama based on the reality of Victorian East London just prior to the reign of Jack the Ripper. It could have been a better mystery but overall I enjoyed it.

Breaking Away
This movie really captures what it means to be young and unsure of your future. It's a wonderful depiction of 4 Indiana men who try to grow up and make decisions about their futures. They all have their own problems to deal with but all need each other in dealing with their situations. Being outcasts in town, they turn to each other for hope and understanding. Also being "less privileged" than others their age, they learn to make the best of what they have...each other. Dennis Christopher leads this all-star cast in a movie that should be watched by the young and old. It is a compelling saga of how these young men conquer the ever-present problem of trying to fit in.

The Hitman
The plot of two people running from killers who dislike each other has been done too many times but still you can get a lot of out it with the rights actors, a good script and direction. This time we have two very good actors that are enjoying the fun as much as the viewer. Ryan Reynolds is the bodyguard who has to protect Samuel L Jackson, the hitman who has to testify against his former employer and run through the gauntlet of assassins out to get him; both are really good actors and both are really fun to watch (the chemistry between them is perfect and incredible); it is Jackson who gets the funnier bits most of the time. Salma Hayek is another that will make you laugh whenever she is on screen and deserves as much credit as the two male characters. I have no complaints against this movie at all - it was just a very solid all rounder that delivered big time.
