Joseph (1995)
7/10
Biblical and attractive tale about the favored son of the Patriarch Jacob, being well directed by Roger Young
22 September 2019
Competently made Biblical production dealing with revelant epic deeds narrated in the Old Testament. It is a luxuriously mounted production that gives a feeling of religious spectacle. Biblic story of Joseph: Paul Mercurio, and his 10 envious siblings. Covering Jacob, who long time ago was blessed as successor by Isaac posing as Esau, his sons and especially Joseph. He was sold to slavery by his jealous brothers Reuben, Zebulon, Simeon, Judah .. They had a real jealousy of his skills and of being their father's favorite. As they take him, seize, tear off his coat and throw him into a dry well. The following day, he is given to traders on their way to Egypt . At a popular market, Joseph is sold as a slave to Pothipar, the Pharaoh Prime Minister : Ben Kingsley . His prophetic abilities and highly productive work win his master's trust and he is appointed as a major servant. One day, he is seduced Pothiphar's tempting wife : Lesley Ann Warren , but Joseph rejects her . The scorned woman seeks vengeance and acussing him of violation. He is imprisionated and at the jail prophetizes the future of two locked powerful men who served the Pharaoh . Later on, he is called by Pharaoh himself : Stefano Dionisi , to interpret his twisted dreams . As Joseph describes the famous dream of seven thin cows that eat seven fat cows. Then Joseph predicts the dream in which 7 years of plentiful harvest, Egypt will suffer 7 years famine .Later on, Pharaoh Ramses I appoints Joseph as the main Chancellor.

Biblical history miniseries formed by two long episodes , shot in enough budget imitating the American Colossal, but made in Italian style. This Old Testament story is decently told , taking parts here and there of the notorious historical happenings . It contains great production design, spectacular scenes and famous as well as charming actors. The movie gives engaging messages about fraternity, compassion, forgiveness, love, brotherhood and redemption. Paul Mercurio gives an acceptable acting as the good son whose ruthless brothers become increasily resentful of their dad's preference of Joseph, carring out a merciless revenge . Martin Landau gives a good interpretation as Jacob who married Rachel well played by Alice Krige .Support cast is frankly fine, such as Dominique Sanda, Ben Kingsley, Warren Clarke, Lesley Ann Warren, Renato Scarpa, Peter Eyre, Oliver Cotton, Arthur Brass, and Monica Bellucci as Pharaoh's wife, among others.

It packs an impressive and rousing musical score by Marco Frisina supervised by Ennio Morricone. And a colorful, brilliant cinematography by Raffaele de Mertes, shot on location in Morocco. The picture was compellingly directed by Roger Young. Roger is a good artisan, usually filming for TV and occassionally for big screen. He has shot various miniseries which have been a joy of his long career. He filmed several episodes of the prestigious Bible series, such as Jesus, Moses, Paulus of Tarso, Salomon, Barrabbas and Joseph. Rating 7/10. Better than average. Well worth seeing.

This story has been previously adapted as follows : Joseph and hid Bethren 1961 by Luciano Ricci, Irving Rapper with Geoffrey Horne as Joseph, Finlay Currie, Robert Morley, Terence Hill, Belinda Lee, Helmut Schneider. In the beginning 2000 by Kevin Connor with Eddie Cibrian as Joseph, Christopher Lee as Pharaoh Ramses, Steven Berkoff as Puthiphar, Amanda Donohue as his wife.

Enjoyable Italian adventures with intrepid pirates and exotic scenarios .
20 September 2019
Enjoyable Italian adventures with intrepid pirates and exotic scenarios . This ¨Avengers of the seven seas¨ or ¨La isla de la ambición¨ (1962) or ¨Il giustiziere dei mari¨(original title) contains adventures , thrills , action and ship battles . It's 1790 , somewhere in the South Seas , a British Naval Commander Redway (Roldano Lupi) is driven by ambition for getting money and will stop at nothing to get it . Redway arrives with his underlings men Lt. David Robinson (Richard Harrison) , Hornblut (Paul Muller and other troopers on the island of Freeland to collect the annual tribute in the form of pearls to England . Once ashore, greedy Redway, his second in command, and their men meet with the island's representative, Errol Robinson. David instantly recognizes Errol as his dad and it results out David has a brother, Gary, he hasn't seen since he was a baby. In order to save his sibling and avenge his father's death David must join forces with a band of pirates led by Captain Bernard Van Artz (Walter Barnes) and his daughter Jennifer van Artz (Michèle Mercier) , hunt down and kill Redway . Meanwhile , the pirates are pursued but they take shelter at their secret island of Quantral . By the way they take on enemies , are imprisoned as well as mistreated by abusive guards , whipped , betrayed and sold to a cannibal tribe . There then takes place riots , fights , escapes and attacks .

Entertaining adventure movie with natives , intrepid pirates , prisoners and colorful scenarios .Packing verwhelming battles and full of villainy , romance , swashbuckler and heroism . This thrilling picture turns out to be a be a mixture of Pirate movie and adventure , including blood-thirsty cannibals . Along the way we are treated to see swashbuckling , wall-to-wall action , sword-play ,treason , twists and turns .The film is a nice pirate-adventure movie , a passable , acceptable tale , being produced in enough budget . Amusing adventures with valiant pirates and spectacular scenarios on jungles and marshes with carnivorous plants . This classic story of romantic adventure come to life enriched by Eastmancolor cinematography in charge of Carlo Bellero , though a perfect remastering being necessary . This release has some nice and even quite exciting moments here and there , though isn't always interesting , sometimes is diverting and fresh and on a couple of sympathetic occasions is frankly delicious . The film bears remarkable resemblance to ¨Women of the Devil's land¨(1962) also directed by Domenico Paolella with similar cast , scenerios and shot at the same time . The picture is full of struggles , fencing , villainy , romance , ambushes , swashbuckler and heroism . As for the cast, as was also usual, at the top, we found an American actor decided to try his luck in European cinema . In this case the character brought to life , was rightly played by Richard Harrison. He is cool as the lieutenant/pirate hero who encounters dangerous situations while trying to revenge his beloved relatives . He was an actor who had his first major role in "Master of the world" by William Witney along with Vincent Price , then he changed in action roles , mainly series B westerns , get some success and ends up traveling in Europe in the sixties where he made many Peplum and Euro-westerns . Worthwhile watching for a demonstration of the confrontation between the Richard Harrison against the dangerous villain played by Roldano Lupi .Richard Harrison played in Hollywood some minor roles as ¨Kronos¨, and ¨South Pacific¨ . Then , Harrison jumped at the chance when offered the first character in 1961 ,¨The Invincible Gladiator¨ , which was filming in Europe . He wound up settling in Italy for the next two decades . To avoid being penned in too much as a muscle man , he sought characters in routine spaghetti westerns as ¨Texas the Red¨, ¨¨, ¨Reverendo Colt¨ , ¨One Hundred Thousand Dollars for Ringo¨, ¨Stagecoach of the Condemned¨ , ¨Gunfight at High Noon¨ ,¨Joe Dakota¨ , even the main role from ¨For a fistful of dollars¨ was offered to Richard Harrison , but he turned down and explaining : Maybe my greatest contribution to cinema was not doing Fistful of Dollars, and recommending Clint Eastwood for the part . The female role was performed by Michèle Mercier, unforgettable starring in the role of Angélique, "the Marquise of the Angels", was both a blessing and a curse. It catapulted her to almost instant stardom, rivalling Brigitte Bardot in her celebrity and popularity, but ruined her acting career. By the end of the 1960s, the names Angélique and Michèle Mercier were synonymous, and to escape type-casting, Mercier was compelled to leave France and try to re-start her career in United States, unfortunately without any success. Support cast is frankly good , thanks to the familiar secondary actors as Roldano Lupi and Walter Barnes . The rest of the cast , we find a negative character to which the director gives a special treatment : the nasty Paul Muller , a secondary actor who interpreted various roles for Jess Frank .

The motion picture was professionally directed by Domenico Paolella . He was a director and writer, known for filming all kind of genres such as Nunexploitation : ¨The nun and the devil¨, ¨Unholy Convent¨ , Peplum : ¨Maciste Nell'inferno Di Gengis Khan¨, ¨Il Gladiatore Che Sfidò L'Impero¨ , ¨Golia Conquista Di Bagdad¨ , ¨Ercole Contro Tiranni , ¨Maciste against Mongols¨, among others .

The 400 Blows (1959)
7/10
Groundbreaking and semi-autobiographic film that initiated Truffaut's long career , concerning a peculiar character , Antoine Doinel
20 September 2019
This classic and unforgettable movie with amazing freshness catapulted Truffaut to international acclaim , dealing with a the trails and rebellious of 13-year-old Antoine Doinel . He is a rogue French schoolboy , starred by an adolescent Jean-Pierre Léaud , being the first of Doinel series , following : L'amour à vingt ans (original title) or El amor a los veinte años (1962) , a Short titled Antoine et Colette (1962) , Stolen kisses or Baisers volés (original title) (1968) , Bed and Board or Domicile conjugal (1970) , Love on the run or L'amour en fuite (1979) . The downtroddem , neglected and rebel teen Doinel delves into a life of petty crime . Antoine (Jean-Pierre Léaud) is often in trouble at school , especially with his French teacher 'Petite Feuille', (Guy Decomble) and doesn't get along with his parents (Claire Maurier , Albert Remi) , particularly his mum . While his friend René suggests that they play truant . Both of whom often skip school to go to a funfair attraction park or to carry out tiny theft . Antoine and Rene are suspended from school , they go gallivanting around the town. Unless something drastic changes in Antoine's life, he is destined down a path that will lead to nothing good, which is more problematic as he gets older. Instead of going to school, Antoine along with his friend René go to the cinema, play pinball, and visit a huge amusement rotor , a real funfair attraction . The following day Antoine tells his teacher that his absence was due to his mother's death; unfortunately his parents show up at school .Then he briefly runs away from home but then goes back . Things go wrong when Antoine to get money steals a typewriter from his father's office , being trapped by a janitor. It is quasi-autobiographical account of 13-year-old Antoine's bleak odyssey through family life , reform school whose precarious permanence is questioned and getaway . From the Vanguard of New Film-Makers Comes an Extraordinary Motion Picture . The Best Directed Picture Cannes International Film Festival 1959 . Angel faces hell-bent for violence.

Still one of the cinema's most sensitive , perceptive forays into infancy , it is intensely stirring but never mawkish , as Truffaut reveals an actual complicity with the rebellious teenager , being François 's first major motion picture. Shot on location in Paris in almost-documentary style and with a casually vivid eye . An increasingly compromised and attractive work in which Truffat demonstrates his narrative skills , being infinitely better than other self-indulgent films towards the end of his career . Fun for spotting the guest appearance of such Nouvelle Vague French luminaries such as Jacques Demy , Jeanne Moreau , Jean Claude Brialy , Jean Luc Godard and Francois Truffaut himself .Thought-provoking and engaging finale when a juvenile-court judge sends him to an observation centre in the countryside, from where he runs away, and doesn't stop until he reaches the sea , there takes place the frozen image of the boy face ; is it point of no return or freedom ? .Truffaut was seeking a young actor able to play Antoine Doinel, a troubled adolescent, in his first feature film "The 400 blows". Jean-Pierre was tested among a hundred other candidates and proved so amazingly spontaneous and so gifted for improvisation that not only was he hired but he would go on to play the role in four subsequent Truffaut semi-autobiographies concluding with "Love on the run" (1978), a unique experience indeed. Well starred by the boy Jean-Pierre Léaud with a long career along with Truffaut , Leaud is not everybody's cup of tea for sure, but will remain an important name in film history. Thanks to Truffaut he was introduced to the other stars of the French New Wave, mainly Jean-Luc Godard for whom he would appear in eight films and one TV film, and gradually became their icon. As an actor he can be adored or hated for exactly the same reasons: he is one of those rare players that directors let improvise his dialogue, which gets on certain viewers' nerves while it fascinates others . The same is true for his very personal staccato diction and elocution and his many mannerisms, the most obvious one being his way to run his hand through his long hair. This is a semi-biography of Truffaut himself , in fact the French director François Truffaut began to assiduously go to the movies at age seven similar to Jean-Pierre Léaud and he was even a great reader but not a good pupil . He left school at 14 and started working. Furthermore , the movie is dedicated to Andre Bazin , aged 15, as he founded a film club and met André Bazin , a French critic, who became his protector. Bazin helped the delinquent Truffaut and also when he was put in jail because he deserted the army .

It displays an atmospheric musical score by Antoine Duhamel , Truffaut's usual musician . As well as an evocative , adequate cinematography in black and while and documentary style by prestigious cameraman Henry Decae . The motion picture was competently directed by Truffaut , being one of the greatest and most influential of his films . His main themes were passion, women , childhood and faithfulness . His films gets several references to the American cinema, as Truffaut was a fervent moviegoer, such as : Johnny Guitar, Bogart, and his idolized Hitchcock . In fact , he was a big Alfred Hitchcock fan and defined him as his master . In 1953 Truffaut published his first movie critiques in "Les Cahiers du Cinema." In this magazine Truffaut, and some of his friends as passionate as he was, became defenders of what they call the "author policy". In 1954, as a test, Truffaut directed his first short film. Two years afterwords he assisted Roberto Rossellini with some later abandoned projects . The year 1957 was an important one for him: he married Madeleine Morgenstern, the daughter of an important film distributor, and founded his own production company, Les Films du Carrosse; named after Jean Renoir's Le carrosse d'or (1952). He also directed Les mistons or the brats (1957), considered the real first step of his cinematographic work. His other big year was 1959: the huge success of his first full-length film, 400 blows (1959), was the beginning of the New Wave, a new way of making movies in France. This was also the year his first daughter, Laura Truffaut, was born. From 1959 until his death, François Truffaut's life and films are mixed up. Let's only note he had two other daughters Eva Truffaut (b. 1961) and Josephine (b. 1982, with French actress Fanny Ardant). He also directed thrillers and intrigue movies such as ¨Shoot the piano player¨ is one of the best of his suspense movies along with ¨Farenheit 451¨, ¨Mississippi mermaid¨ , and ¨The Bride Wore Black¨. Truffaut was the most popular and successful French film director ever.

Randolph Scott Western containing noisy action , shootouts , a climatic confrontation on the final , twists and turns
18 September 2019
It is good action entertainment for those who like their westerns action filled. An Easy-Going Gent with Deadly Guns...and a Reputation to Match! This undemanding western in which a counterespionage agent attempts to discover who's behind a Southern conspiracy , as it is plenty of suspense as the dreaded final attack . This exciting picture tells the story of an upright officer , Randolph Scott , who gives a perfect acting in his usual stoic style . A nice Western with frantic action , intrigues , thrills , fights , crossfire , suspense , wonderful outdoors , all of them keep things lively . Here Randolph Scott goes undercover to find a ring of treacherous rebels who are working in cahoots with the Confederacy and posing as a schoolteacher . As undercover government agent Ransome Callicut (Randolph Scott) arrives in 1850's South California . As he gradually gains trust the townsfolks to uncover their plans and reveal the dark objectives ; then he discovers a hidden cache of rifles . Aided by his underlings : Monk Walker (Dick Wesson) and Olaf Swenson (Alan Hale Jr) he fights political assassination and other adventures to unmask the ringleader of the plot and keep the Golden State in the Union . Along the way , he falls in love for a gorgeous woman , Lora Roberts (Patrice Wymore), who is already engaged with a cavalry officer , Capt. Roy Giles (Philip Carey) .

Well made film, though not outstanding , I loved the scenery and the cinematography by expert director of photography Bert Glennon is beautiful. It also has strong direction, a charming music score from David Buttolph that compliments the film perfectly, an attractive story with an interesting structure and themes and sharp dialogue. However, while it is not an exceptional movie it is a very acceptable and enjoyable one, and I also think overrrated . Not that it's a bad film, but a fairly routine western which even kind of gives away who the inside man is way too early in the film. This agreeable tale is almost rudimentary though a few clichés , containing an interesting as well as stirring screenplay by John Twist , based on a story by Robert Buckner . Being breathtakingly photographed in Technicolor ; In addition , good pacing is also at hand, and the cast are great . Randolph Scott has done better work perhaps, but still gives an engaging performance. Randolph Scott gives a decent acting in his usual style as the undercover army officer to gather intelligence about an insurrectionist plot to have the southern part of the state secede to become a slave state , subsequently revealing his true identity and assuming command of the local army post. Nice supporting actors largely hang around waiting for something to do , and with plenty of familiar faces , such as : Dick Wesson , Philip Carey , Lina Romay , Roy Roberts , Alan Hale Jr , Morris Ankrum , Douglas Fowley , Katherine Warren and Anthony Caruso.

Furthermore , a moving and rousing musical score by the classical composer David Buttolph . As well as glimmering and shimmering photography by Bert Glennon , shot in studios and exteriors from Bell Ranch, Santa Susana, California . This thrilling chronicle of espionage and counter-espionage during the American Civil War was decently directed by Felix F. Feist . It is a typical Western professionally directed with lavish production design and enough budget . At his beginning Felix Feist entered the Hollywood film industry, obtaining work as a writer, and producer , before finally becoming a director , filmmaking several Shorts and documentary . His first feature films were : All by Myself and You're a Lucky Fellow, Mr. Smith . After that , he made a lot of films of all kinds of genres , getting hits and flops ; such as : ¨Deluge¨, ¨George White's scandals¨, ¨The Winner's Circle¨ , ¨The reckless age¨, ¨The devil thumbs a ride¨, ¨The Golden Gloves Story¨, ¨The threat¨, ¨Guilty of treason¨ , ¨The Basketball Fix ¨, ¨Tomorrow is another day¨, ¨The Man Who Cheated Himself¨. And his two greatest successes : ¨Big trees¨and ¨Donovan's brain¨.

His influence was enormous , including notorious authors as Saint Thomas , Jansenio and even Protestants as Luther and Calvino . Saint Agustine brought to life Greek philosophy , Aristoteles especially , to Medieval world through the Neo-platonism . In addition , he combated deeply the heretic doctrines . He is known by various cognomens throughout the Christian world across its many denominations including Blessed Augustine, and the Doctor of Grace. Agustin studied laws , philosophy during his Chartage time and neo-platonism in his life at Milan . He was the bishop of Hippo Regius in North Africa and is viewed as one of the most important Church Fathers of the Latin Church for his writings in the Patristic Period.

This is the exciting story of the moving life and religious conversion of Aurelius Augustinus to Saint Augustine of Hippo. It is set in 430 AD, in the besieged city of Hippo, the seventy-year-old bishop Augustine (Alexandro Preziosi as a young and as an oldman , Franco Nero) tells a captain of the Roman guards, the story of how his Christian mother, Monica (Monica Guerritorre) , saved him. Born in the North African city of Thagaste, Augustine studied in Carthage, becoming an accomplished but dissolute orator. After converting to Manichaeism, a guiltfree religion, he was called to the imperial court in Milan along with his partner Valerius (as a young : Johannes Brandrup and grown-up : Alexander Held) to serve as an opponent to the Christian bishop Ambrose (Andrea Giordana) who later on , he baptized him .But when the Empress Justina (Francesca Cavallin) orders the imperial guards to clear out a basilica , he is won over to Christianity. Then , he became an essential Catholic priest writing and speeching . Among his most important works are The City of God, De doctrina Christiana, and Confessions. Back in Hippo, Augustine urges the Roman garrison to negotiate with the Vandal King Genseric (Götz Otto), but they proudly refuse.

The series composed by two parts results to be an enjoyable biopic about Saint Agustin , his troublesome life and conversion at thirty-year-old of Aurelius Augustinus to Saint Augustine of Hippo, thanks to his mother Saint Monica who was a Christ worshipping and bishop of Milan Ambrosius ending in the Hippo siege , at that point, he too, passing up a chance to escape on a ship sent to rescue him by the Pope, stays by the side of his people. Main and support actors give acceptable interpretation , packing a decent production design and spectacular battles at its final . The series was well directed by Christian Duguay . He is a director and assistant director, known for Scanners II and III , Human trafficking (2005), Art of war (2000) , Extreme Ops , Boot Camp , Rouge Brésil (2012) . Furthermore , he has directed various historical TV series , such as : The Medici , Joan of Arc , Pío XII , San Agustín , Anna Karenina , Coco Chanel , Guillermo Tell and Hitler: The Rise of Evil , among others . Rating : 7/10 . Better than average . Well worth seeing .

Adding more remarks upon Augustine who "established anew the ancient Faith" , these are the following ones : In his youth he was drawn to Manichaeism and later to neoplatonism. After his baptism and conversion to Christianity in 386, Augustine developed his own approach to philosophy and theology, accommodating a variety of methods and perspectives.Believing that the grace of Christ was indispensable to human freedom, he helped formulate the doctrine of original sin and made seminal contributions to the development of just war theory. When the Western Roman Empire began to disintegrate, Augustine imagined the Church as a spiritual City of God, distinct from the material Earthly City.His thoughts profoundly influenced the medieval worldview. The segment of the Church that adhered to the concept of the Trinity as defined by the Council of Nicaea and the Council of Constantinople closely identified with Augustine's On the Trinity. Augustine is recognized as a saint in the Catholic Church, the Eastern Christian Church, and the Anglican Communion and as a preeminent Doctor of the Church. He is also the patron of the Augustinians. His memorial is celebrated on 28 August, the day of his death. Augustine is the patron saint of brewers, printers, theologians, and a number of cities and dioceses. Many Protestants, especially Calvinists and Lutherans, consider him to be one of the theological fathers of the Protestant Reformation due to his teachings on salvation and divine grace. Protestant Reformers generally, and Martin Luther in particular, held Augustine in preeminence among early Church Fathers. Luther himself was, from 1505 to 1521, a member of the Order of the Augustinian Eremites. In the East, his teachings are more disputed, and were notably attacked by John Romanides. But other theologians and figures of the Eastern Orthodox Church have shown significant approbation of his writings, chiefly Georges Florovsky.The most controversial doctrine associated with him, the filioque, was rejected by the Orthodox Church as Heretic Teaching.Other disputed teachings include his views on original sin, the doctrine of grace, and predestination.Nevertheless, though considered to be mistaken on some points, he is still considered a saint, and has even had influence on some Eastern Church Fathers, most notably Saint Gregory Palamas.In the Orthodox Church his feast day is celebrated on 15 June. Historian Diarmaid MacCulloch has written: "Augustine's impact on Western Christian thought can hardly be overstated; only his beloved example Paul of Tarsus, has been more influential, and Westerners have generally seen Paul through Augustine's eyes."

A sage of high adventure and conquest well starred by Rock Hudson
13 September 2019
Rousing adventure set in north-western Canada, next to Alaska , in the 1870s with all the usual ingredients as thrills , emotion , including glowing colour and distinctive photography in Cinemascope . Spectacular adventure and romance in which American schooner captain Peter Keith (Rock Hudson) hopes to return to America with a cargo of furs before winter but two (Steve Cochran, Hugh O'Brian) ) determined local crooks scheme to rob Keith's cargo , boat and spouse (Marcia Henderson) . Set in the white jungle of the North in which our protagonist and his wife along with a Great Dane called Wapi , being all of them mercilessly pursued by nasty , rugged men who are after a boatload of precious hides . Then they flee in the heart of the wilderness . Both of whom will take on a death struggle , thundering terror of the avalanche , wildlife and anything else . Roaring out of the gale-lashed north .. The sage of a mighty conquest ...The sage of conquest and high adventure ¡

This shimmering picture is set in the North wildness , in the Canadian mountains, at a small village in the icy wilderness of Alaska , and specifically at the treacherous jungle of ice plenty of wild wolf attack , wild avalanche and a fight for life against fury of claws and fangs . This exciting film deals with a Wild Love Story in the Wild North and it contains adventures , thrills , an enjoyable romance and colorful outdoors well filmed by cameraman Maury Gertsman who photographs splendidly the snowbound scenarios . One of the colourful , moving and action features that Universal International Pictures trotted out with polish , professionality and much regularity in the 50s . It bears resemblance to another Universal film titled ¨The Wild North¨ by Andrew Marton with Stewart Granger , Wendell Corey and Cyd Charysse. Interesting though sometimes boring screenplay by Tom Reed based on a story by James Oliver Curwood . It's a quickie with last luster and medium-budget but it manages to be at least an enjoyable adventure movie because of it contains noisy action , sensational outdoors and outlandish as well as risked situations abound . There's some fascinating in watching the dangerous aventures of Rock Hudson and wife Marcia Henderson , being relentlessly chased , but using stocks originally shot since former films , especially on avalanche scenes . Plenty of a Hollywood all-star cast ; however ordinary script complications muddle the tale . This is a Rock Hudson adventure set in Alaska , he plays Peter Keith who along with his wife have to defend themselves against two especially mean villains . Rock starred a lot of adventure movies , such as : The Desert Hawk , Bengal Brigade , Spiral road , Battle Hymm , and Thunder of God . Rock was Douglas Sirk's fetish actor including essential titles as Taza , Magnificent obsession , Written in the wind , among others . He is well supported by Marcia Henderson who really was a pretty package and she is was worth the price of admission to see her . Support cast is very good such as : Steve Cochran , Hugh O'Brian , Chubby Johnson , Tudor Owen ,Charles Horvath, Arthur Space and Pat Hogan .

Colorful cinematography in brilliant Technicolor by Maury Gertsman , mostly shot in studios , Universal Studios City Plaza , Universal City , California . And usual exteriors filmed on location in Sun Valley, Idaho , Colorado and Universal studios , full of exciting color , and all grandeur of the wilderness captured in breathtaking images . Stirring , evocative and thrilling musical score by Frank Skinner . The motion picture produced by Howard Christie was professionally directed by Joseph Pevney , though with no originality and some moments result to be a little tiring ; as it has some flaws , gaps and failures . Pevney replaced Douglas Sirk -Hudson's regular filmmaker- who was originally set to direct the film , that's why he fell ill . Joseph Pevney was a good artisan , being well known as a very organized and precise filmmaker who was nonetheless relaxed on the set . He directed a lot of movies of all kinds of genres such as Wartime : Torpedo run , Away all boats , Air cadet . Adventures as Yankee Pasha , Tammy , Twilight for the God, Congo crossing ,Ring circus , Legion of desert . Western : Lady from Texas , The plunderers . Thriller : Undercover girl , Flesh and fury , Man of a thousand faces , Iron Man , Shakedown , The strange Door , 6 bridges to cross , Istanbul. Rating : 5.5/10 . Passable and decent adventure movie . The flick will appeal to Rock Hudson fans .

A hi-tech thriller with supercharged action and moving pacing , in which McClane confronts a terrorist mastermind
12 September 2019
This following squeaked by on the same formula with John McClane saving the country from ominous terrorists . Passable sequel in which John McClain has to fight some nasties attempting to take over USA . McClane's gone , the famous Hollywood's action man in seeming vulnerable at the same time as being invincible . Thriller with frenetic action and unstoppable developing in fits and starts by the craftsman by Len Wiseman . Gripping , moving action movie with the great Bruce Willis desperately trying to find the means avoid a world catastrophe , as the country is being taken over by a sadistic smoothie and his ruthless henchmen . This mindless, interesting and ingenious film is packed with thrills , suspense , tension and lots of interminable action . Again John McClane , officer of the NYPD and hero of the Nakatomi Hostage Crisis, attempts to avert a disaster in Washington , packing adrenalin-inducing action scenes staging the murderous mayhem and state-of-the-art violence . Once again he is in the wrong place at the wrong time , as John McClane and a young hacker (Justin Long) join forces to take down master cyber-terrorist Thomas Gabriel (Timothy Olyphant) and hoodlums (Maggie Q, Cyril Raffaelli) in Washington D.C. , but the latter has only one little problem: John McClane (Bruce Willis).

This sequel offering slam-bang entertainment also contains lots of noisy action , thrills , explosions , twists , turns and lots of fun . Decent follow-up that continues in a similar style , humor and action . From start to finish the action-packed is unstopped , breathtaking and spectacular . Nail-biting screenplay that dispenses absurd excitement as well as amusement . Acceptable and big-budgeted thriller full of intrigue and tense , this is a fast-paced, stylized action-suspense film . The tension of this picture keeps snowballing as the clock ticks ever close for a groundbreaking as well as impressive final . As always , Bruce Willis is very fine as hilarious , sarcastic and intrepid old cop . Yet again humble detective McClane stumbles into a terrorist plot and he must save the day single-handedly . His kind of self-referential irony stopping just short of full-blown saves the movie . Willis transformed by his former experiences into a more traditional action Superman , it is left to sidekick Justin Long play the vulnerable part . Both of whom giving entertainment and providing good moments and incidental pleasure of watching two disparate roles . Apart from that , there is little originality or wit on offer , just the familiar escalation of car pursuits , crashes , destruction , blowing up and big bangs . They are well accompanied by fine secondary characters . As casting is frankly well , such as : Mary Elizabeth Winstead , Maggie Q , Kevin Smith , Andrew Friedman , Cliff Curtis , Cyril Raffaelli , Chris Palermo , Sung Kang , Zeljko Ivanek and Timothy Olyphant takes honors as psychopath who attempts to turn the tables on the protagonist . Adequate and thrilling musical score accompanying the action by Marco Beltrani . Inventively photographed by Simon Duggan ; most of scenes were shot in Washington, District of Columbia . Nice camera work , in fact cameraman seems he were born with a camera in one hand and a rocker launcher in the other . This motion picture was lavishly produced, and being professionally directed by Len Wiseman .However , the filmmaker fails to bring out the necessary tension betweem the terrorist team and the brave John McClain , but more than compensates in timing , utter volume and speed

This¨Die Hard saga¨ is formed by the following ones : the original that was a masterpiece among blockbusters , ¨Die Hard¨ 1988 , by John MacTiernan with Willis , Alan Rickman , Alexander Godunov , Bonnie Bedelia as his wife . ¨Die Hard 2¨1990 by Renny Harlin with Willis , Bedelia , Franco Nero , William Sadler , John Amos . ¨Die Hard with a vengeance¨ 1995 by John MacTiernan with Willis , Samuel L. Jackon , Colleen Camp , Graham Greene . ¨Live Free or Die Hard¨ 2007 by Len Wiseman with Willis , Timothy Olyphant , Maggie Q , Kevin Smith , Cliff Curtis . A Good Day to Die Hard¨ 2013 by John Moore with Willis , Jai Courtney , Sebastian Koch , Cole Hauser , Mary Elizabeth Winstead , Aumary Nolasco . And in production : ¨McClane ¨2019 by Len Wiseman .

Thrilling and exciting true tale about two families planing to escape from communist East Germany in a hot air balloon
11 September 2019
Warning: Spoilers
The East German border: 836 miles of barbed wire walls, automated machine guns, armed guards, and deadly land mines. On September 15, 1979 two families tried to cross it . East Germany, two families, the Strelzyks (Friedrich Mücke , Karoline Schuch) and the Wetzels (David Kross , Alicia von Rittberg) , make plans to escape the Communist East and flee to the West. Peter Strelzyk comes up with a daring idea to construct a homemade air balloon big enough to carry the two families across the East-West militarized border. The border between East and West Germany is heavily militarized, complete with watch towers, guard dogs, barbed-wire, alarms, sensors, search lights, and patrols. Rumors have it that some areas of the militarized border are mined. The only chance of crossing the border is by air. The Strelzyks and the Wetzels commence their risky venture by purchasing lots of taffeta fabric and sewing it together with a sewing machine in the attic. Peter Strelzyk builds an experimental homemade hot air balloon burner. In 1979 when the balloon is ready Peter and his son test it, but the Wetzel family becomes hesitant. The Strelzyks decide to go alone, but bad weather causes the balloon to crash inside the Communist zone. The Strelzyks leave the crash area, but the incriminating evidence litters the ground. They wonder if they will be able to evade the ensuing Police investigation and whether they will be able to build another balloon for their next attempt. They also are determined to persuade the Wetzel family to maybe join them in their second try. That is, if the East German Communist secret Police, the Stasi commanded by Oberstleutnant Seidel (Thomas Kretschmann) , won't get to them first.For freedom they risked it all and the date of the night crossing was September 15, 1979 .

Based on actual events , about valiant heroes planing to escape from communist East Germany in a flimsy , homemade hot air balloon, but only if they can take their families with them . The real-life "Night Crossing" took just twenty-eight minutes and the flight path of the night crossing went from Poessneck, Thuringia, to Naila, Bavaria, which is near Hof . The fact-based story results to be an exciting action flick for the whole family . Imaginative scenes , suspenseful narration and didactic moralising make the film largely palatable . Furthermore , the excitement , intrigue and entertainment are widely piled on . This is is a second version , the first titled ¨Night crossing¨1982 , scrapings of the Disney barrel , being directed by Delbert Mann with Jon Hurt , Jane Alexander , Beau Bridges , the latter rendition ¨Ballon¨ 2018 is most interested in suspense and tension than the family life .

The motion picture was well and originally directed by Michael Bully Herbig . He is generally considered as being one of the most successful German filmmakers . Herbig is an expert on parody based on known characters , such as ¨Sissi¨ in ¨Lissi and ¨The Wild Emperor¨ and , of course , ¨Vickie the Viking¨ . His second feature movie he directed ,¨ Der Schuh des Manitu¨ became the most successful movie in Germany and Austria ever ,this movie ever with 12 million viewers and the broadcast television premiere of this film earned the highest rating in its history . Ballon (original title) rating : 7 . Acceptable and decent film appointed for children and adolescents and , youngsters ; of course , you'll enjoy this one . Well worth seeing .

Gorgeous and spectacular mini-series with marvelous production design and being colorfully photographed
10 September 2019
Set against the revolution for India's freedom from England , it deal with marvelous adventures , tragic love stories and British/Indian battles during the second Afghan war . An India adventure with all the usual ingredients , including glowing colour , wonderful settings , spectacular scenarios and distinctive photography . After his true identity is discovered at the age of 11, Ashton Pelham-Martyn is sent to England to complete is education. At the age of 5, his daddy was killed in the Mutiny and Ash was rescued and raised by his Indian nanny and an adoptive father (Omar Shariff) . He returns to India as a young man (Ben Cross) , he becomes an appropriately noble British officer in a Regiment stationed on the Northwest Frontier . He is assigned by his stiff-upper-lipped Commandant (Robert Hardy ) to a risked mission with his infantry : to custody two princesses (Amy Irving , Sneh Gupta) who have been promised in an arranged marriage to a tyrannical governor . As he is reunited with a infancy friend, Anjuli (Amy Irving) , nowadays a gorgeous young woman and he falls in love with her , then things go wrong . He is forced to accompany her and her sister to their wedding and although they are very much in love, they are forced to part company. When Anjuli's husband, the Rana of Bhitor (Rossano Brazzi) dies , there takes place a horrible fate . Along the way the brave protagonist faces off the violent attack on the British delegation in Kabul and other warring events .

HBO's first mini-series formed by three parts , set in 19th century British colonial India about a story of forbidden love in 1800s involving an ethnic romance between a British cavalry officer and an Indian princess, along with war battles , betrayal and emotion as well as intense drama and honor . Enjoyable adventure movie that brings me back to my childhood, when I loved to see the Oriental movies because of the magical happenings and wonders around abound . This adventure movie contains thrills , frantic action , exuberant outdoors , luxurious interiors and a complicated love story. The film is essentially a romance story and in the midst of fighting , treachery , impressive action and surprising outdoors . A delightful Naive Adventure , as the film is fairly entertaining and, as can be expected from a grade-A European production of the eighties , handsomely mounted but it mainly survives today on its high quotient of nostalgia . The Far Pavilions is a rousing , moving , stirring tale , above average , and adding action as well as thrills with a great sense of wonder , including attractive scenarios . It is an entertaining and brilliant mini-series, plenty of noisy action , thrills , glamorous cinematography with wonderful camera work , luxurious costumes , catching score ; all meld together under Peter Duffell's nice direction . Although the story has been told before , tight filmmaking and nice acting win out . This lavish production was budgeted at thirteen million dollars and it was considered to be one of the most expensive at the time . Belonging to a cycle of British productions set in India , shot early 1980s , many of them based on E.M. Forster novels , though this one is based on the romantic bestseller written by M.M. Kaye . Being a perfect combination of overwhelming landscapes and palace battles , fights and full of villainy , romance , and heroism . The picture is enjoyable , exciting and thrilling right up with climatic final when our hero has to rescue his lover when she is expected to join her deceased husband on his funeral pyre so it is left to Ash to save her . Lavish spectacle and good casting overcomes the somewhat sluggish storytelling that combines a number of familiar Oriental fares . In any case, this satisfactory viewing has brought back fond childhood memories of similar costume pictures and has certainly whetted my appetite for more . Main cast is franky excellent , such as : Ben Cross , Benedict Taylor and the beautiful Amy Irving who at the time married Steven Spielberg . They are well accompanied by a pretty good support cast , such as : the always great Christopher Lee , the Italian Rossano Brazzi who is miscast as despotic ruler Rana of Bhithor , Saeed Jaffrey , Sneh Gupta , Omar Sharif , John Gielgud , Robert Hardy , Mary Peach , Anthony Sharp , Felicity Dean , Peter Arne , John Forbes-Robertson , Art Malik and a young Rupert Everett .

This Technicolor adventure fantasy is well adorned by stunning cinematography by the prestigious Jack Cardiff . Shot on location in Samode Palace, Samode, Rajasthan, India and North Wales, Wales, UK . Striking and evocative musical score by Carl Davis . This British/India spectacle was glamorously directed by Peter Duffell . Although there are two versions : the complete version aired on television whose runtime is 315 min and another rendition about one hour and fifty minute cut of this mini-series was theatrically released as a movie . The good craftsman Peter Duffell directed various mini-series and several TV episodes from notorious series , such as : The Bill , Space precinct , Tales of the Unexpected , Inspector Morse , The Waterfall , The famous five , Journey to the Unknown , Man in a Suitcase , The adventures of Black Beauty , Strange report and The Avengers , among others . Rating : 7/10 . Better than average . Essential and fundamental watching . Well worth seeing .

Two great men of action in one great new motion picture. Dealing with a has-been outlaw who warms up his pistol again in this old style Western. Simple and light western with a plain, regular and modest plot, resulting in the inevitable final showdown at the downtown, starred by two great titans, Douglas and Coburn. It is set in the end days of the old western with appearance of the first automobiles . A previous desperate outlaw, Kirk Douglas, faces down enemies and, nowadays, a drunk ex-sheriff called Sam Starrett , James Coburn, who was his long time nemesis . As an ex convict called Harry Holland : Kirk Douglas, who spent several years in prison, and being recently released, attempts to carry out a peaceful life. Holland heads for Bell city where only finds unknown townspeople and some children amazed and really interested in his gun-handling skills. As he goes to the saloon for a drink, there four men are playing poker game, and he joins the group to play cards. Meantime, Reggie : Derek McGrath is cheating the game, as usual . But Harry wins all the Reggie's money. Shortly after, Holland attempts to cash at the bank, but the bank teller does not accept, then Harry takes the money and run. Later on, he is wounded at a stand-off , after Holland is stuck in Bell hotel and while being surrounded by deputies : Graham Jarvis, who are unabled to catch him, but he refuses to surrender himself . In the hotel , Harry takes a traveling theatre actress, Alexandra Bastedo, as a hostage who heals his injures.

Decent but low budgeted Western with star power, emotion, thrills and some smart moments make it worthwhile watching. However, being excessively talking and some claustrophobic, mostly set in hotel room, saloon and main street where takes place the ordinary ending duel. Concerning an interesting battle of wits between the two greatest tough, two-fisted actors on the screen, Douglas and Coburn. Giving a particular character studio about two individualist roles, an old retired gunslinger and a drunken ex-sheriff. The lion's share of the acting meat deservedly goes to Kirk Douglas, being magnificently supported by James Coburn. They are well accompanied by a good support cast, such as Alexandra Bastedo, Derek McGrath, Graham Jarvis, Linda Sorensen and actor/filmaker Stuart Gillard. Medium, low budget yarn , financed by Kirk Douglas and his company Bryna and by today very prestigious HBO in one of his first productions.

Bad follow-up in low budget with a lots of fights and several claustrophobic scenes
7 September 2019
Below average sequel with little action and too much interior scenarios . It blends suspense , thrills, action , twists and turns . it is believed that no one can ever flee from impregnable prison , except for a daring man , Ray Breslín : a senile Silvester Stallone . As he manages an elite team of security specialists trained in the art of breaking people out of the most impenetrable prisons . Years after he fought his way out of an inescapable prison , Ray has organized a new awesome security force formed by brave members played by Dave Bautista , Xiamong Huang , Jesse Metcalf . And his usual colleague , the resourceful technology expert Shu Ren : 50 Cent Jackson , as well as his sweet companion Abigail : Jaime King .But one of his team members goes missing , as he is kidnapped and disappears inside the most elaborate jail ever built : ¨Hades¨ , entirely computerized by a huge super computer called Galileo and ordinarily changing its shape , then Breslín has to return to the hell he once escaped from . As a decrepit Ray must track him down with the help of his former colleagues , infiltrating himself into a futuristic facility with extreme security measures . This is not a prison , it is a Machine . He's back.

This thrilling flick packs intrigue , nail-biting violence and lots of fights . The movie takes place into four walks of a high technology jail with plenty of computers and glimmer lights . Of course , expired Stallone is also locked and equally determinated to get his freedom, using his special skills to break out , as he goes on to push the boundaries of what is human possible , dealing with his preparatives and fights to escape by confronting nasty enemies . Sylvester Stallone plays in his ordinary , but already out-of-date , style as the obstinate hero to get the wished escape .The final confrontation between Stallone supported by his underlings and the baddies is stimulating and violent , including some surprises . In the film shows up some actors from previous installment as 5o Cent Jackson , and Stallone himself , adding others as Xiamong Huang , Dave Bautista, Wes Chatham , Titus Welliver and Jaime King who replaced Amy Ryan as Abigail .The motion picture was badly directed by Steven C Miller and was filmed in 20 days only , and several countries was exhibited direct to video . Steve C Miller is an expert on action and terror movies , usually played by famous actors , but with no much success , such as : Line of duty , First kill, Arsenal, Marauders , Submerged , Extraction , Under the bed , The agression Scale, Scream of the Banshee , Automaton transfusion , among others. Rating 3.5/10. Only for Sylvester Stallone's hardcore fans .

This Escape plan trilogy is formed by the first , original and the best : ¨Escape plan¨ 2013 by Mikael Hafstrom with James Cazievel , Arnold Schwarzenegger, 50 cent Jackson , Amy Ryan , Vinnie Jones ; in which Stallone finds himself set up and incarcerated in the world's most secret and secure prison, ¨The Tomb¨ -a highly fortified prison based on his own design- and he must use his skills to escape with help from the inside . Following a third outing titled ¨The extractors¨ 2019 by John Herzfeld with 50 Cent , Jaime King , Sea Bruckner , Russell Wong , Daniel Bernhardt, this latter concerns a rescue of the abducted daughter of a Hong Kong mogul from a formidable Latvian prison,, then Breslin's girlfriend is also kidnapped.

Good sequel set in a pseudo-apocalyptic future with chills, shocks and loads of violence
6 September 2019
This thrilling picture results to be a futuristic yarn full of kinetic energy and amazing stunt work . It contains mystery , chills , noisy action , thrills , fights , social critical , and a weird atmosphere with dark with a surprising ending . The known and unrealistic premise of "The Purge" developing in the first installment is the following : The idea behind this whole futuristic America is that the Economy is down and Crime is up , as authorities put a lot of emphasis on murder being legal , that's why they believe assassinations would get better problems . It is just universally accepted that the cause of all these troubles is built up aggression within the human population. In order to correct this, the United States Government decides that it would be a good idea to give the public a day to "release the aggression". So, one day of each year, they will have an annual "Purge" where all crime is legal , including killing . Somehow, magically, this does help the Economy and Crime overall is down for the rest of the year. Because if people get out all that anger in one day, they will not feel the need to commit any more crimes for the rest of the year . This third outing is set some years later from first entry , it's been two years since Leo Barnes (Frank Grillo who reprises the character of former police sergeant Leo Barnes) stopped himself from a regrettable act of vendetta on Purge Night . Nowadays serving as head of security for Senator Charlie Roan (Elizabeth Mitchell) , who is promising to end the annual purge nights , she is competing at national election against another candidate , Minister Edwidge Owens (Kyle Secor) . The New Founding Fathers of America's (NFFA) leader, Caleb Warrens (Raymond J. Barry) and their candidate, Minister Edwidge Owens, view Roan as a threat; in the guise of regaining the public's trust, revoke immunity for rank 10 or higher government officials to kill her on Purge night . Charlie's mission is to protect her in a run for president and survive the annual ritual that targets the poor and innocent . They have to confront a really ruthless gang of masked killers led by Earl Danzinger (Terry Serpico) . But a betrayal forces them onto the streets of D.C. on the one night when no help is available . Along the way the security agent and the Senator are helped by a motley group of brave people called Joe Dixon (Mykelti Williamson) , Marcos (Joseph Soria) and Laney Rucker (Betty Gabriel) . As they must stay alive until dawn...or both be sacrificed for their sins against the state . I Purged . For one night only, America invites you to its annual tradition . Keep America Great .Purge for the People .Purge for the Nation . Purge for the Power .Purge for Your Liberty . Purge for the Glory. Witness the birth of an American tradition. Citizens, join the Purge. A nation reborn. It Changed Our Country. It Challenged Our Beliefs. Now, Witness How It All Began.

The film is a comic-books style story , set in a dystopian nearly future , plenty of energetic action , shootouts , extreme violence , thriller , surprise-filled entertainment and high body-count . The tale is a blending of ordinary Sci-Fi movies , such as : Escape from N.Y , 2013 : Rescue in L.A. , Doomsday , and even Mad Max series , taking parts here and there . Instead of attempting to be a terror movie , it turns a fantastic thriller/action film set in a pseudo-apocalyptic future about a group of people trying to survive on a night where it's all-out war on the streets . This exciting movie is packed with frenetic action , crossfire , unbelievable car stunts , tension , thrills , chills , and lots of blood and gore, including throating-slit , beheading and anything else . The nail-biting action scenes are uniformly very well done , and the suspense and intrigue are enough to keep you interested throughout the film runtime , even in the low parts of the picture . This Great Action Thriller was the final movie in the "Purge" trilogy (2013-2016) until a prequel was made : The First Purge (2018) . It displays a magnificent plethora of characters , pretty well drawn , giving exceptional performances by its entire cast .

This is a decent movie and well set in a post-apocalyptic D.C. , dealing with a valient group who will have to fight cruel disguised cutthroats , bands of depraved crazies ; packing frantic action , shocks as well as abundant violence, being professionaly directed by James de Monaco . And it even has earned more money at the box office than its predecessor . Monaco is a good writer/producer and director . He has written the Purge saga and Purge TV series ; and Assault on Precinct 13 , Skinwalkers , Negotiator , Hate , Staten Island , The kill Point series , Crash series . And he has directed The Purge films ; this horror/thriller franchise is formed by The Purge 2013 , The Purge: Anarchy 2014 , Election year 2016 , and The First Purge 2018 . All of them are set in different locations , as the first film takes place in a house , the second film takes place in the streets , and the third film takes place in official locations , as well as D.C. , and The First Purge takes place on Staten Island, New York , in which no character from any of the previous installments will be returning. This Purge Election is an acceptable film in its own right and it's worth watching . Rating : 6.5/10 . It is very highly recommend to anyone who appeals apocalyptic thrillers .

It is a typical Spaghetti Western including common scenarios , two-fisted antiheroes , rapid zooms and strong confrontations
5 September 2019
So-so Pasta Western full of shots , go riding , crossfire , plot twists and violence . It contains a catching soundtrack , an atmospheric cinematography and passable production design shot in Elios studios , Lazio , Rome . Mediocre Western about a merciless revenge in which an avenger attempts to keep law and order , seeking justice , including a deadly confrontation between a tough deputy and his enemies , this reckless hero was here played by a Spaghetti star : Brett Halsey . Ordinary Italian Western with sad atmosphere , attractive musical score concerning customary revenger seeking justice and vengeance . It deals with a stranger called Johnny Ringo (Montgomery Ford or Brett Halsey) heads for the town of Eagle Pass to stop a mean counterfeiting band , following the theft of plates from the Federal Bank . The little town is run by Jackson (Dessy) , he is allegedlly responsible for this counterfeiting operation , and he owns the saloon where performs marvelous songs Annie (Polyn who sings herself a wonderful song : ¨How long is the night¨), who has a secret relationship with one of the counterfeiters called Ray Scott (Fuscagni). Along the way the suspicious Ray is detained by Ringo and imprisoned at the town jail , being watched by the sheriff (Lee Burton or Guido Lollobrigida , Gina Lollobrigida's brother) . Meantime , the unsettling and disturbing Jackson , along with his bunch of hoods and other respected villagers carry out blackmails and massacre against their opponents . But then Johnny Ringo contends his enemies at duels and ambushes in which he must use his experience and cunning . As Ringo kills each man of the gang one by one . Ringo is eventually supported by the astute sheriff , and proceeds his activities at whatever cost , acting as a judge , jury and lethal executioner . And the end takes place his encounter with enemies at the downtown , including unexpected surprises . This is a doomed journey to hell through vengeance , murders and violence .

Run-of-the-mill Maccaroni Western , adding a few novelties , but also with usual elements , such as extreme baddies , betrayers , noisy action , turns and some spectacular action scenes . It is a habitual Spaghetti Western including thrills , regular scenarios , nail-biting action , shoot'em up , and an unexpected final twist . This motion picture was regularly directed by Gianfranco Baldanello packing an evocative soundtrack , evocative cinematography and acceptable production design in a medium-low budget . This exciting Western regarding an implacable hunting down , adding cruel killings against suspect people , it should be more fun than it is , but the film seems some claustrophobic , mostly filmed at the town , as much of the action takes place at the village and its Saloon , though including some defiles , mountain , a cave and the central street for the ending showdown . Stars Brett Halsey , with pseudonym Montgomery Ford , elegantly dressed and using gloves , plays as Johnny Ringo who arrives in a small town, as he sees it was vandalized by a wealthy owner called Jackson who takes the invaluable honour , money , and lives of the upright townfolks . The American Brett starred several Spaghettis as this ¨Kill Johnny Ringo¨ , ¨Roy Colt and Winchester Jack¨ , ¨Twenty thousand dollars for seven¨ and ¨Today We Kill, Tomorrow We Die!¨. Although he also performed other genres as Wartime : ¨To hell and back¨ , ¨Jet over Atlantic¨, ¨Atomic submarine¨, ¨submarine seahawk¨ , Drama : ¨Return to Peyton Place¨, ¨The girl in lover's lane¨, Adventures : ¨The magnificent adventurer¨ and Terror : ¨Return the fly¨, ¨Black cat¨, ¨Demonia¨. At the support cast appears some few familiar faces from Spaghett , as the following Italian actors as Guido Lollobrigida or Lee Burton , Barbara Loy , Attilio Dottesio , Lucio De Santis and Guglielmo Spoletini who often used pseudonym as William Bogart .

The music by Caruso is suitably Spaghetti in Morricone wake , with usual guitar chords and other instruments in Italian style . Adequate cinematography in Eastmancolor by Marcello Masciocchi , though a perfect remastering being really necessary . This Spaghetti Western was middlingly shot by the Italian professional Gianfranco Baldanello . He was a prestigious assistant director to popular Italian films such as ¨Leopard of Sarawak¨ , ¨Vendetta of Ursus¨ , ¨Cavalcata selvaggia¨ , ¨David and Goliath¨ , ¨Sword of the Sarracen¨ , ¨1527 Il sacco di Roma¨ , ¨Fire Monsters Against the Son of Hércules¨ , among others . As he was assistant director/writer/editor/producer and subsequently directed some films . Gianfranco made several Spaghettis , such as ¨Uccidete Johnny Ringo¨ , ¨This man cant die¨ , ¨Son of Zorro¨ , ¨The Cry of the Wolf¨, ¨Black Jack¨ , ¨Blood River¨ and ¨30 Winchesters for El Diablo" - International title- or "Gold Train" . Being starred by usual Spaghetti genre stars as Brett Halsey , Gianni Garco , Peter Martell , Wayde Preston , Fernando Sancho and Anthony Steffen . Rating : 4.30/10 Average . Only for Spaghetti Western aficionados .

Old-fashioned and conventional sunken-treasure adventure with Wilde as one man show by writing/producing/directing and acting
4 September 2019
Below average Cornel Wilde adventure/thriller movie filled with underwater scenes , astonishing fights , well handled sharks scenes and violence . This is a violent adventure movie that earned notoriety because of on location , a sea pleny of hungry sharks , as stunt divers were really injured by sharks . It deals with a band of hustlers and escaped convicts (all-male support cast) led by Jim Carnahan (60-year-old Cornel Wilde who demonstratre his fitness by doing one-handed press-up on deck) commander a boat filled with gold . He's stuck there when a buch of risible pirates assaul the boat . As these desperadoes are also attempting to retrieve gold bullion that lies deep in shark-infested waters . See the most sensational shark fight ever filmed!

Very failed and unexceptional adventure/thriller except as a virtual one man show by Cornel Wilde . It is a typical Cornel Wilde film with action-infested dumbness with plenty of thrills , brawls and violent confrontations . The naivite and oddity of the screenplay can scarcely cope with the diverse strands of script queueing up and waiting to be dealt with : underwater searches for treasures , confrontation themselves and with some nasty pirates . In making this underwater adventure yarn , in freak weather conditions , were hired some stuntmen , and experimenter divers to shot the dangerous Shark Sequences on exotic locations in Coral Sea, South Pacific, Pacific Ocean . Notorious underwater explorer Jacques Costeau commented that despite its cruelty , he had never before known a white killer shark attack a man in so vicious a manner . Rather unified is Wilde's homespun philosophising : the perils of nicotine and drink and the virtues of keeping fit . Two-fisted and tough acting by Cornel Wilde as a drifter who carries out a risked raid on a sunken ship in the shark-infested waters . He played several adventure movies , such as : ¨The greatests show on the earth¨,¨Treasure of Golden condor¨, ¨Passion¨, ¨Sword of Lancelot¨, ¨Omar Khayyam , ¨At sword's point¨ , ¨A thousand and one nights¨ , ¨Norseman¨, ¨The fifth musketeer¨ and directed/acted the classic ¨The naked prey¨ and other successes in all kinds of genres as ¨Leave her to heaven¨, ¨Forever amber¨, ¨Road house¨, ¨Big combo¨, ¨Wintertime¨ , ¨A song to remember¨, ¨High Sierra¨.The film benefits itself from a nice support cast , such as Yaphet Kotto , Cliff Osmond , David Canary , David Gilliam , John Neilson and brief appearance by recently deceased Carmen Argenziano .

It contains an anti-climatic and inappropriate musical score . The movie displays an evocative cinematography , being extremely necesary a perfect remasting . Shot on location in Bonaire, Dutch West Indies , Coral Sea, South Pacific, Pacific Ocean . The motion picture was regularly made by Cornel Wilde . Here he starred , wrote , produced and directed . Always primitive , Wilde's movies seem to operate increasingly in a strange limbo with no points of reference outside his own simple view of the world . In Shark's treasure Wilde does a little effective job both as actor and filmmaker . He is especially credited as a good actor but also known for directing some acceptable flicks . His later films were of varying quality, and he ended his career in near-cameos in minor adventure films . As he directed adventures as¨Maracaibo¨ ,¨Lancelot and Guinevere¨, ¨Sharks' Treasure¨ but also Noir Cinema as ¨The Devil's Hairpin¨, ¨Storm Fear¨ and Sci Fi : ¨Blade of Grass¨. And a real oddity : ¨The naked prey ¨ , it Is an amazingly well done movie , being Cornel Wilde's best movie as a filmmaker .

Enjoyable biographic series about the notorious scientist finely played by Imanol Arias and Daniel Guzmán
3 September 2019
Interesting biography about Severo Ochoa De Albornoz (Daniel Guzmán as Severo Ochoa joven and older Ochoa well performed by Imanol Arias) who was the nephew of Álvaro de Albornoz (President of the Second Spanish Republic that was exiled) , he was born in Luarca (Asturias), 24 September 1905 and died 1 November 1993 , he was a Spanish-American physician and biochemist, and joint winner of the 1959 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine with Arthur Kornberg (Juán Gea) . Dealing with his life , as his father died when Ochoa was seven, and he and his mother moved to Málaga, where he attended elementary school through high school. His interest in biology was stimulated by the publications of the Spanish neurologist and Nobel laureate Santiago Ramón y Cajal . In 1923, he went to the University of Madrid Medical School, where he hoped to work with Cajal , but Cajal retired . He studied with father Pedro Arrupe, and Juan Negrín (Joan Gadea) was his teacher. Negrín encouraged Ochoa to isolate creatinine from urine. He succeeded and also developed a method to measure small levels of muscle creatinine . Ochoa spent the summer of 1927 in Glasgow working with D. Noel Paton on creatine metabolism improving his English skills . During the summer he refined the assay procedure further and upon returning to Spain submitted a paper describing the work to the Journal of Biological Chemistry, where it was rapidly accepted, marking the beginning of Ochoa's biochemistry career . Ochoa completed his undergraduate medical degree in the summer of 1929 and developed an interest in going abroad to gain further research experience . His previous creatine and creatinine work led to an invitation to join Otto Meyerhof's laboratory at the Kaiser Wilhelm Institute for Biology in Berlin-Dahlem in 1929. At that time the Institute was a "hot bed" of the rapidly evolving discipline of biochemistry, and thus Ochoa had the experience of meeting and interacting with scientists such as Otto Warburg, Carl Neuberg, Einar Lundsgaard, and Fritz Lipmann in addition to Meyerhof who had received the Nobel Prize in Physiology and Medicine less than a decade earlier .In 1930 Ochoa returned to Madrid to complete research for his MD thesis, which he defended that year. In 1931, a newly minted MD, he married Carmen García Cobián (Ana Duato) , he did not have any children. He then began postdoctoral study at the London National Institute for Medical Research , where he worked with Henry Hallett Dale. His London research involved the enzyme glyoxalase and was an important departure in Ochoa's career in two respects. First, the work marked the beginning of Ochoa's lifelong interest in enzymes. Second, the project was at the cutting edge of the rapidly evolving study of intermediary metabolism.

This miniseries is a decent biography of the prestigious scientific but it relies heavily on the long relationship between Severa Ochoa and his wife played by Daniel Guzmán/ Severo Ochoa young and Maite Pastor/Carmen Covián young as well as Imanol Arias/Severo Ochoa and Ana Duato as Carmen Covián . In the series shows up known historical characters as Luis Buñuel , Salvador Dali , Federico Garcia Lorca , Dictator Miguel Primo de Rivera , and President of Republic Juán Negrin . The series was well directed by Sergio Cabrera .

Adding more remarks about Severo Ochoa life : From then until 1938, he held many positions and worked with many people at many places. For example, Otto Meyerhof appointed him Guest Research Assistant at the Kaiser Wilhelm Institute for Medical Research in Heidelberg for one year. From 1938 until 1941 he was Demonstrator and Nuffield Research Assistant at the University of Oxford. Ochoa then went to the United States, where he again held many positions at several universities. Between 1940 and 1942, Hershey worked for the Faculty of Medicine of Washington University in St. Louis. In 1942 he was appointed Research Associate in Medicine at the New York University School of Medicine and there subsequently became Assistant Professor of Biochemistry (1945), Professor of Pharmacology (1946), Professor of Biochemistry (1954), and Chairman of the Department of Biochemistry.In 1956, he became an American citizen. In 1959, Ochoa was awarded the Nobel Prize for Physiology or Medicine for his work on the synthesis of RNA.Ochoa continued research on protein synthesis and replication of RNA viruses until 1985, when he returned to Spain and gave advice to Spanish science policy authorities. Ochoa was also a recipient of U.S. National Medal of Science in 1978. Long after his death, Spanish actress Sara Montiel claimed that she and Severo Ochoa were involved in an (unconfirmed) romantic relationship in the 1950s , stating : The great love of my life was Severo Ochoa. But it was an impossible love. Clandestine. He was married, and besides, him doing research and me doing films wasn't a good match. A new research center outside Madrid that was planned in the 1970s, was finally built and named after him, the Centro de Biología Molecular Severo Ochoa. In addition , a hospital bears his name, as does the Madrid Metro station serving it, Hospital Severo Ochoa. And the asteroid 117435 Sever Ochoa is also named in his honor.
