Poster for Corpse Bride

Corpse Bride

The extremely exaggerated facial features of disproportionate denizens are once again a highlight; the character designs contain an abundance of humor, even when the personas themselves do as little as shuffle around a room.

An uncommonly dark Disney release, yet it’s also full of comedy and adventure. Plus, there’s a love story in here, though it’s regularly pushed aside for humor and music.

The dance choreography is exceptional, with Astaire and Rogers reinforcing their collaborative effectiveness, but the combination of singing and dancing talent, comedy, and romance isn’t nearly as refined as in Top Hat a year later.

Sleepless in Seattle

9

A madcap, slapstick type of comic conclusion, with no real hope of marital longevity. Nevertheless, it’s terribly romantic.

The movie is full of humor and heart, most effectively provided by Steinfeld, who manages to be both genuine and relatable, despite acting predominantly in front of fully CG personas.

May not be the most striking of sci-fi dramas (it definitely carries on for too long), but it’s a pleasant, life-affirming, touching bit of entertainment.

A masterpiece of deception and manipulation.

Poster for What Ever Happened to Baby Jane?

What Ever Happened to Baby Jane?

8

Its descent into chaotic madness is exquisite, although it’s overlong in the process, going into a considerable amount of detail for its depiction of escalating insanity. Yet the closing revelations are breathtaking and unforgettable.

The real stars of the film are mind games and manipulation, sharply brought to life by the restrained verbal feuding between Bogart and Robinson.

The refusal to play by traditional rules is thoroughly refreshing.

Poster for To Have and Have Not

To Have and Have Not

6

The love story isn’t as affecting and the drama isn’t as significant as many of its peers, but To Have and Have Not still boasts an exciting climax and a satisfying conclusion.

Instead, it feels confused, unfocused, and unsatisfying – perhaps a result of studio meddling and the director’s waning visionariness.

The Master of Suspense may prefer to manipulate his viewers, but he’s not so ruthless as to deprive them of a supremely satisfying finale.

His brand of monster is nuanced, unique, and highly cinematic.

Sleepaway Camp

May be low budget and devoid of stars, but the music by Edward Bilous is rather rousing, if a touch overdramatic.

Poster for The Postman Always Rings Twice

The Postman Always Rings Twice

7

It’s a fascinating study of crime and consequences, of love and fatalism, even if the parting shots are contrived and rushed – but also perversely poetic and redemptive.

Poster for The Hot Spot

The Hot Spot

4

By the end of this bloated, small-town crime saga, a few moderate (and guessable) surprises turn up, but they’re not shocking or severe enough to warrant such a long, meandering theatrical adaptation.

Poster for Mulholland Falls

Mulholland Falls

It may betray its genre intentions, but it’s nevertheless well-acted and routinely entertaining.

Poster for Gilda

Gilda

The central romance becomes a slight perversion on the love stories in Gone with the Wind and Wuthering Heights and Jezebel, yet with a hint of redemption that isn’t the least bit believable – and a climax that nods to Casablanca but lacks the sensibility and sentimentality.

Nicely complementing the violence is a pervasive tongue-in-cheek vibe.

Amid the haunted-house jump scares and the graphic violence, decent bits of humor work their way into the picture.

Poster for Top Hat

Top Hat

Surely one of the cleverest of the musical comedies of the ’30s, as well as, arguably, Astaire and Rogers’ greatest collaboration.

Poster for Frenzy

Frenzy

8

As a ripped-from-the-headlines police procedural, Frenzy is above average. But it’s somewhat lacking for Hitchcock, despite its fascinating deviations from his usual projects...

Poster for First Reformed

First Reformed

6

It’s original, confounding, and profound, though it culminates in an ending capable of exasperating half of its viewers, while giving the other half a glimmer of hope.
