Gianni F (es) wrote: 'Red Hook Summer' is actually a solid drama, and filled with great performances, despite what critics say.Mid-way gets a little far fetched, but that's always been apart of Spike Lee's craft.A good entry in his 'Chronicles Of Brooklyn' series.See it or skip it.

Ola G (ca) wrote: After a dying Voodoo queen, Mama Loa, chooses an adopted apprentice, Lisa Fortier (Pam Grier) as her successor, her arrogant son and true heir, Willis, (Richard Lawson) is outraged. Seeking revenge, he buys the bones of Mamuwalde the vampire from the former shaman of the voodoo cult, and uses voodoo to resurrect the vampire to do his bidding. However, while it brings Mamuwalde (William Marshall) back to life, he quickly bites Willis upon awakening. Willis now finds himself in a curse of his own doing: made into a vampire hungering for blood and, ironically, a slave to the very creature he sought to control. Meanwhile, Justin Carter (Don Mitchell), an ex-police officer with a large collection of acquired African antiquities and an interest in the occult, begins to investigate the murders caused by Mamuwalde and his growing vampire horde. Justin meets Mamuwalde at a party Justin hosts to display the African collection pieces before being moved to the University's museum. They discuss the artifacts, unbeknown to anyone else, that were from the region of Africa Mamuwalde hails from, including pieces of jewelry once worn by his late wife Luva. Mamuwalde also meets Justin's girlfriend, Lisa Fortier, at the party and he discovers that Lisa is naturally adept at voodoo. Lisa discovers Mamuwaldes true nature after a friend of hers, Gloria, falls victim to his bite and resurrected as a vampire who nearly feeds on her if not for Mamuwalde's intervention. He later asks her for help to cure him of his vampire curse...I have never seen this 1973 blaxploitation horror film, but I wanted to due to Pam Griers participation as Lisa. I reckon this suits the genre with an afroamerican Dracula, despite the fact that the pace is slow, the action is sparse and the acting is slightly wobbly and so are the effects. I reckon we are used to see Pam Grier as a bad ass on revenge, but here she has a much softer role and she shows her acting skills from that angle as well. And shes stunning as always. "Scream Blacula Scream" is intriguing if you are into blaxploitation.

Kevin R (de) wrote: If I wasn't drunk, they never would have caught me Two lawyers have stumbled onto a series of serial killings. As they investigate the murders it quickly looks like they are responsible. As they work feverishly to prove they are not responsible for the slayings, they remember they can uncover the killer as well as prove their innocence. "Don't try anything funny; remember, I'm sober." Tay Garnett, director of Timber Tramps, The Delta Factor, Cattle King, Frontier Circus, Seven Sinner, The Racket, and Wild Harvest, delivers Slightly Honorable. The storyline for this picture is well presented; however, it is the characters that make this film work. The acting is marvelous and the cast includes Pat O'Brien, Edward Arnold, and Ruth Terry. "Call me tomorrow, Pete, I know a good dentist." Slightly Honorable was part of a Thriller Box Set I received two years ago for Christmas from my father. This movie was interesting due to the dynamic characters and brilliant script. The plot wasn't overly creative or well thought out, but at least the storyline is worth following. I do recommend seeing this picture. "I'm not afraid to die but it has to be quicker than the legal way." Grade: B-

Matt O (us) wrote: My favorite screen couple. The script seems to come off as a lesser relative of Manahttan Melodrama. Not how the movie would be made today. There would be actual affairs rather than just the appearance of them.

Mike L (nl) wrote: Life After Beth is a really great idea with somewhat lackluster execution. Audrey Plaza has of course given another outstanding performance as an actress like she always does, but that isn't enough to bring this movie to life (pun intended.) I really wanted to love Life After Beth because of its amazing cast and interesting horror-comedy premise but it truthfully only made for a 'whatever' experience that is unfortunately forgettable.
