The End of FilmStruck

Virtual Virago Posted by Jennifer Garlen on Nov 16, 2018

The Apartment (1960, Billy Wilder)

The Stop Button Posted by Andrew Wickliffe on Nov 16, 2018

The Apartment does whatever it can to remain a dramatic comedy when it shouldn’t be anymore. And sort of isn’t. When the film shifts into real drama, there’s no going back. Director Wilder gets it too. The film has a good comedy opening, a breathtaking dramatic middle, and a decent comedy end. read more

Halloween II (2009, Rob Zombie)

The Stop Button Posted by Andrew Wickliffe on Nov 15, 2018

The only good thing about Halloween II are the end credits. They run like nine minutes, meaning the movie is closer to ninety-five minutes than 105. Even though the ninety-five minutes feels like an eternity. The movie starts with director Zombie making fun of the idea of making another Halloween I read more

Shanghai Gesture (1941)

4 Star Films Posted by 4 Star Film Fan on Nov 14, 2018
