    Million Dollar Legs

    ★★

    Watched this as a double bill with Duck Soup a film with which it shares may similarities. While I stand by that being a solid double feature, I probably did a disservice paring this oddball comedy with one of the Marx Brothers very best. Needless to say, Million Dollar Legs is no Duck Soup. Frankly, I found this film a tiresome slog despite a runtime of just about an hour. I felt every minute of that hour. Fans of pre-code comedies may want to check this out as a curiosity but it won't be for everyone's taste. It certainly wasn't for mine.

    Perhaps the quintessential W.C. Fields comedy remains a hilarious showcase for the hard drinking, child and dog hating, snide remark making comedian. I must have been in the wrong mood when I saw this one for the first time seeing as I only gave it three stars. Upon reconsideration, this film is a real comedy gem. It has really turned me around on W.C. Fields someone who, up to know, I never really got. This film really made me a believer. This film is great and an absolute essential classic comedy.

    John Carpenter's legendary masterpiece of suspense still holds up even against a glut of more graphic and larger budgeted imitators. Everything is pitch perfect from the memorable score, to the sumptuous cinematography, to the sneakily good performances. A entertaining, scary, and tension filled thriller that only gets better with age. The Citizen Kane of slasher films.

    Underrated and largely forgotten cold war thriller is worth seeing for the great cast which includes Gene Hackman and Tommy Lee Jones and for the skillful direction of Andrew Davis who is adept at crafting suspenseful films packed with plenty of nifty twists and turns. Intelligently plotted, lots of action and an exciting and satisfying climax, what more could you ask for?
