Reel Reviews – Rebel Without A Cause

Rebel Without A Cause

Reel Reviews #58: “You’re tearing me apart.” An all time classic. James Dean turns in a great performance in the film which he is probably best remembered for. It’s time for tough kids, Fifties style. “What can you do when you have to be a man?”

Reel Reviews – Superfly

Superfly

Reel Reviews #57: “Super Hood, Super High, Super Dude…” One of the original “Blaxploitation” films, this one helped to set the standard. An iconic performance by Ron O’Neal as Youngblood Priest and an amazing soundtrack by Curtis Mayfield makes Superfly a film worth watching. “It’s not so much what we do, it is having a choice.”

Reel Reviews – Showgirls

Showgirls

Reel Reviews #56: Per the commentary: “Why close what you can slam?” This film is so bad, it is good – sort of. For film aficionados this is required viewing. I always talk about great film, here is the antithesis. We have all heard of it, so let’s take a look. Yes it is April 1, but this is not an April fools joke. Today we take a serious look at Showgirls. “Thanks, I bought it at Ver-sayce.”
