Films I watched last week (2 February to 8 February 2014)

Features
4-February-2014
The Night of the Prowler (1962) - 7/10 (enjoyable low-budget crime drama)


5-February-2014
Klondike (1932) - 7/10 (enjoyable little "second feature" with a solid cast. Viewed via copy downloaded from Internet Archive)


6-February-2014
Shadows of Death (1945) - 7/10 (an unremarkable b-western, enjoyable but forgettable. However, it does feature a lot of Al "Fuzzy" St. John, which must count for something. Viewed via copy downloaded from Internet Archive)

Shorts:
Vignettes for Polavision: The Chase (1978) - 7.5/10 (re-watch)

Films I watched last week (26 January to 1 February 2014)

31-January-2014
Boots! Boots! (1934) - 7/10 (amusing comedy produced on a very low budget)


1-January-2014
Death Goes to School (1953) - 7/10 (enjoyable crime produced on a very low budget. A fluff film with little substance, but I found it enjoyable)

Sunday, January 26, 2014

Films I watched last week (19 January 2014 to 25 January 2014)

19-January-2014
The Voice of Merrill (1952) - 8/10 (well-made, entertaining, well-directed British crime drama produced on a fairly small budget, but you never notice the small number of sets or small cast, such is the quality of the film)
20-January-2014
Talking Feet (1937) - 6/10 (cheaply made British musical film. The lead actress, child actress Hazel Ascot, has a filmography consisting of two musical feature films, and a 1980s-era TV appearance as herself. It's a shame she didn't get more work. I admit that some parts of the film have aged very badly, but it still maintains entertainment value)

Films I watched last week (22 December to 28 December 2013)

Shorts:
24-December-2013
Mount Tamalpais R.R., No. 1 (1898) - 7/10 (viewed on YouTube. Not one of the better shorts of 1898, but still interesting)

Hockey Match on the Ice (1898) - 7/10 (it is interesting on an historical level, as is often the case with 1898 cinema. Viewed on YouTube)

Sleighing Scene (listed as "II" on IMDb) (1898) - 7/10 (it's fun seeing 1890s people doing things in the 1890s. Viewed on YouTube)

Due to my highly unpredictable sleeping pattern lately, I was unable to watch any other films during that week.
