The Changeling Review


Very Good
One of horror cinema's creepy cult classics, The Changeling earns an A for atmosphere but only a C for developing its plot. The story revolves around a tragic composer and music teacher (George C. Scott), who's lost his family in a freak accident, and decides to move to Seattle to start again. His enormous rented house is pretty obviously possessed by ghosts. He spends the rest of the film trying to figure out why (hint: it's all in the title), though much of this work is rote sleuthing-through-old-newspapers and the like. Obviously an influencer to The Ring, it's a fine little haunted house pic, but its revelations leave a bit to be desired.

The Day Of The Dolphin Review


Good
Like watching a car try to beat a train across the tracks -- and failing -- The Day of the Dolphin is a jaw-dropping disaster that you can't turn away from. Fortunately, this one is caught on film (and now DVD) for posterity.

If you're unfamiliar with the movie, you won't believe it's really about this until you see it. Put simply, it's the story of a man (George C. Scott) who trains dolphins to speak -- English -- and then finds them caught up in a government assassination plot. It's either a grand joke on the scale of Punk'd or a grand disaster on the scale of Ishtar. There's not an ironic line in the film -- and in fact, there's not a terrible lot of lines, as the underwater footage recalls silent Jacques Cousteau-style filmmaking.
