Retroactive Review


Good
Now a cast list doesn't get much worse than that. With a few bright points (Whaley, Walsh), there's nary a talented bone up there. But surprise, this isn't such a bad movie. Oh, the plot is asinine -- in the middle of Texas, a bunch of travelers converge for a little mayhem, right next door to a government time machine. Lots of explosions, and Whirry has almost no lines. Whew!

Stalag 17 Review


Good
Highly acclaimed, this precursor of everything from The Great Escapeto Hogan's Heroesto M*A*S*H to Life is Beautiful is hardly a masterpiece, but it does get credit for being one of the first films made to laugh about war. While the film has a few moments of seriousness, by and large it's a comedy -- mocking Hitler and POW life as we follow the daily rituals of Americans held prisoner by the Germans during WWII. Too bad the gags are so over-the-top they deserve a laugh track (hence Hogan and co. -- though Hogan's Heroes was sued for infringement, the TV series won the case). And speaking of which... a 2 1/4-hour comedy???

Girls! Girls! Girls! Review


Weak
Ridiculous, this Elvis Presley flick is just an excuse for the King to sing, whether he's holding court on shore or captaining his tuna boat (seriously) -- where the crew handle percussion on their thighs. Ultimately, he gets caught between two girls as he attempts to raise money to buy the boat. Will he go for the rich girl who's going incognito as a nobody, or the dull as nails Robin? Ah, skip it. Presley does have a few appropriately juicy moments of misogyny that are worth a look.
