Gidget Review


Terrible
Call me a revisionist heathen, but Gidget is one of the worst movies I've ever seen. How it became a hit TV series (which is remembered far more commonly than the original film) is a complete mystery to me. Gidget (Sandra Dee) is a girl who discovers surfing and boys one summer, falling into a crowd that includes such characters as The Big Kahuna. And Moondoggie. (These are people, incidentally.) She swoons and she surfs. Meanwhile, the vapid story is completely trashed by some terrible filmmaking, overexposed and seemingly dubbed throughout, atrociously. Ultimately there's no lesson here aside from a vague notion that fun is good. And Gidget is neither. It's saying something that you can get all three Gidget movies on DVD for less than $14.

The Guns Of Navarone Review


Excellent
A former-day Saving Private Ryan, Gregory Peck and David Niven burn in this war epic, about a gang of neo-mercenaries sent to destroy the titular German guns. Will they save the day? Use your postwar patriotism of 1961 to make a guess.
