Movie Reviews

Film noir?
Jay Holder | 05/25/2010
(3 out of 5 stars)

"In my opinion most of these films were not true film noir and thus somewhat disappointing. The girls were not all that bad (the type to stick a knife in your back and make you love it not so). Most had a soft side but the stories were worth seeing. Heston vastly over rated. His grimace wears thin after you`ve seen several of his movies. Love Lizabeth Scott. If not for her, the series wouldn`t have been worthwhile."
Don't be misled by the title - No "Noir" here - just B Level

"First off, for hardcore fans of "noir," let's begin with the disappointment: these are DRAMAS from the 40/50s in fabulous black and white. All of the atmosphere, cinematic style, cynacism, crime, grittiness, and fatalistic mood that you'd normally see in a period Noir are missing. Even the "femme fatales" featured here are a stretch. That being said, there are three b-flicks here and one z-level in the bunch. The z-level "The Killer that Stalked NY" runs like a public announcement for vaccinations - includes at least one child death from small pox --and it isn't even unintentionally funny - a total dud. "Bad for Each Other" includes an early role for Mr. Heston where he smirks and overacts in the same ham fashion of William Shatner - now THAT's funny. The only "good" movie in the bunch is the last one: "The Glass Wall" - which is tightly written and includes a compelling story line with vintage views of the Big Apple. I'm only keeping this because of "The Glass Wall" -- otherwise, I'd sell the lot. Overall, a poor release with little to recommend it."
