Movie Reviews

D.O.A. is one of the greatest movies ever!
Veritas Veritatis | 10/06/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I purchased this dvd for "D.O.A." only.


"Suddenly" is a decent movie, but not one
that I would purchase separately.
A pretty good psycho-killer performance
by Frank Sinatra invading the idyllic
1950's American small town to assassinate
the President of the United States.


After some character development that is essential
and never boring, this movie is relentless.
The brilliant film noir imagery, the constant action,
excellent performances and over-the-top score
puts the so-called action genre films of today to shame.
It is obvious that technological advancement
does not great art make.

Why aren't there more films in black and white?

The plot is awesome.

As soon as the opening credits and Frank Bigelow's
long, pounding death march to the
Police Dept. Homocide Division office ends,
he reports a murder. His own!

Then we learn the story, in flashback,
of how he hunted down his murderer
with the short time that he had left
and dealt with his imminent death
and the regrets that it gives rise to.

The video and audio quality are excellent.
I've seen this movie many times over the years,
but it never looked this good.
Not widescreen though.
Perhaps there is no widescreen copy available.
Too bad."
