Grand Duel / Keoma

Two helpings of spaghetti, please!


Western

Rod Lott
Mill Creek Entertainment offers another "Spaghetti Western Double Feature" by pairing 1972's Grand Duel and 1976's Keoma on one Blu-ray. Although both already are available on the company's Ten Thousand Ways to Die: The Spaghetti Western Collection on DVD — not to mention a dozen other labels' public-domain discs — the prints here are so clear that fans of the genre should consider the small investment.

Monster Brawl

If wrestling were like this, I'd watch.


Comedy

Rod Lott
Imagine there were a pay-per-view pro wrestling championship battle in which the fighters were not your Hulk Hogans, but hulking creatures. Would you watch it?

Demoted

I’d almost rather work for Tate Publishing than watch it again.


Comedy

Rod Lott
With Demoted, you suffer an hour and a half down the drain; comedian Robert Klein suffers the indignity of dancing in his underwear around a stripper pole. You can forget it; he has to live with it.

Meatballs

Not the Murricane’s tastiest.


Comedy

Rod Lott
My brothers and I watched 1979's Meatballs so many times as kids in its initial run on HBO that, when watching the new Blu-ray release, I remembered almost everything about the summer camp comedy, which marked the first starring role of one Bill Murray, not yet 30.

The Phantom of Crestwood

She deserved it. Case closed.


Thriller

Rod Lott
From 1932, the mystery The Phantom of Crestwood may be one of Hollywood’s first gimmick flicks. That doesn’t make it any good, however.

Miss Minoes

Purr-fect family entertainment.


Family

Rod Lott
One of the most enjoyable family films of the moment is actually 11 years old: Miss Minoes, a Dutch fantasy based on a children's book. I haven't read it, but from the looks of it, I'm betting the movie retains much of its whimsy.
