He Walked By Night (1948)

4 Star Films Posted by 4 Star Film Fan on Nov 3, 2022

He Walked by Night is akin to T-Men or Border Incident in its pervasive use of “Voice of God” narration. Today, all of this feels blase and staid like newsreel footage without much substance. Over time, the voice feels a bit like a pesky mosquito not so much in tone or frequency but sim read more

Noirvember Day 2: Dark Corner Performers — Harold Vermilyea

4 Star Films Posted by 4 Star Film Fan on Nov 1, 2022

It’s easy to imagine Steve Randall (Steve Brodie) has the life of many men circa 1947. He’s a war vet, and he makes an honest wage as a truck driver. Brodie and the effervescent Audrey Long are stars befitting the budget of the film, but I rather like them for it. There’s nothing read more

The Incredible Shrinking Man (1957)

4 Star Films Posted by 4 Star Film Fan on Oct 29, 2022

These old Jack Arnold films are a perfect example of how expectations don’t always meet reality. Because if you’re like me, you have a certain preconception about how these movies will go — how they will look — and thus you may have written them off. Part of this might be th read more
