  1. After watching "Phone Call from a Stranger," I felt like watching another classic that revolved around plane crashes...I ended up with "No Highway in the Sky," and I have to say it was a great watch. As we grow nearer to the holidays, I review a movie about travel...and plane crashes! If you are traveling for Thanksgiving or Christmas, this movie may not be right for you at this time! Overall, a great thriller! What did you think of it? Write comments below and don't forget to subscribe on YouTube for future reviews!

    "No Highway in the Sky" 1951 Video Movie Review - Almost Perfect!

    That's definitely the point of these movies! I read somewhere that disaster movies fit into the whole Cold War thing...paranoia.

  4. For this week's Frightening Friday Flick, I chose one with sort of a funny title..."Invisible Ghost." It's only an hour long and perfect for cuddling up on the couch! Be sure to subscribe on Youtube...and please leave comments because I'd love to talk to more people about these great classics!

  6. Overall, "Fire Over England" is a pretty mediocre historical period drama about the English defeating the Spanish Armada during the Queen Elizabeth era. The last 30 minutes of the film truly saved it from being not worth watching at all. There is a hilarious scene in the movie (which I discuss in my video review) that I will also be posting in my YouTube channel. Enjoy the review and be sure to subscribe to my YouTube channel or give the video a like if you enjoyed it!

    "Fire Over England" 1937 Video Movie Review - Queen Elizabeth I War Film

    I'm glad you noticed it, too! He is so awkward in this movie...and it takes about an hour and a half for a video to upload to YouTube...it takes about an hour for a video I make to render.

    Imagine if Philip Thorn had been played by Laurence Olivier LOL it would have been the most melodramatic movie of all time!

    My review for "Blanche Fury" is now up! Great review, Topbilled, and I loved the photos that you attached.

    Thank you for the kind words! I very much enjoyed your review, too. I replied to your "reactions" in the genre sub-forum.

    "Blanche Fury" 1948 Video Movie Review - Get the Tissue Box Ready!

    Topbilled, you certainly noticed a lot more than I did about the film! I'm really impressed, and I think you're right that I would have to watch the film multiple times to catch all these little details that make the film great. For example, I did not even think about what you said about the gypsies. One thing I forgot to mention in my review was how the director depicted gypsies as essentially bad people (definitely not the gypsies in "Golden Earrings!")...this was a bit controversial at the time. My review is I guess a "first impressions" review. I really like reading what you had to say because it is more of an in depth film study review. You will probably laugh because I COMPLETELY forgot about the opening scene of her on her death bed! LOL So much drama happened throughout the course of the film that I totally forgot the film was basically one big flashback! I'll be honest, when I saw the little girl riding her horse to make the jump, I thought "Oh come on! She's going to make the jump...and then Valerie Hobson will realize that she was wrong about Granger trying to murder the little girl." When I saw the little girl fail the jump and die I was ! I was pretty shocked as I'm sure most audiences back then were...

    This is a film that TopBilled and I decided to review together! I have not seen anything he had to say about the movie yet, but I will after posting this. "Blanche Fury" is a must watch for the Victorian era fans! This is one of those movies where I had a lot to talk about. Enjoy the review and be sure to subscribe on YouTube or leave a comment! I love discussing these movies with you all. This is the entire purpose of me doing these reviews.

    "Fire Over England" 1937 Video Movie Review - Queen Elizabeth I War Film

    Yes! One of these nights I will rewatch "That Hamilton Woman" with my dad...he's been really wanting to see it. Also, "Blanche Fury" kind of reminded me of "Wuthering Heights"

    "Phone Call from a Stranger" 1952 Video Movie Review - Fasten Your Seat belts!

    [spoilers in this comment and TopBilled's comment] You must really not be a big Bette Davis fan if you rate this as her best performance! LOL I think it is difficult to say her best performance because they are all so fantastic. Yea...the crash scenes and the build ups to the crashes were ones to always remember. I liked the fact that Wynn's character was the annoying one but at the same time, he was the most forgiving...it was lovely how he forgave Bette and how she told Merrill that only the "strongest" of men can forgive their wife for something like an affair. p.s. Do you like how I put "Spoilers" above? lol I really don't want people who haven't seen these movies to have their experience ruined by my posts.

    I know! I definitely picked the wrong one I'll need a month or two until I watch him again haha!

    "The City of the Dead/Horror Hotel" 1960 Video Movie Review - Witches Everywhere!

    This was probably my favorite find this Halloween...either this one or "Carnival of Souls." I'm glad you enjoyed it, too!

    This movie will definitely get your heart beating fast! Bette Davis has a small role in "Phone Call from a Stranger," but her performance was, of course, one to remember. It is certainly a movie that will have you thinking about "forgiveness." Nunnally Johnson was truly a great writer! Enjoy the review and be sure to leave a like or comment on the video! I reply to everyone! Little correction...in the review I say it came out in 1953, but it was actually 1952 :3
  18. There were no flaws! Plus the story was interesting and unique. I was entertained the entire film and felt a multitude of emotions...great flick!

    "Fire Over England" 1937 Video Movie Review - Queen Elizabeth I War Film

    I've mentioned before that I wish TCM had more genres in the sub forum section...I would absolutely love if they had a period/historical genre or even just a "drama" genre! Period dramas are possibly my favorite genre from back in the day, and it saddens me that the site doesn't have it in its own area. I'm not sure what was going on with Laurence Olivier at the time, but this movie is definitely the most obvious film I've seen of his where I think "yep...he's a stage actor." As you said, it's not like this was his first motion picture to be in. Who knows.....but it was entertaining! haha

    "Fire Over England" 1937 Video Movie Review - Queen Elizabeth I War Film

    Here is the hilarious scene from the movie...This scene cracked me up too much to not put on YouTube! Laurence Olivier bursts into a cabin to see his father talking with an old Spanish friend of his...instantly he shouts "Enemies now!" to kill this old friend of his father's (only to be stabbed in seconds). Laurence Olivier overacts sometimes.........

    I'm back! This video is just a status of my channel and what to expect from me from now on. The Halloween Special is over, but that means that we get to watch other genres again!

    "The City of the Dead/Horror Hotel" 1960 Video Movie Review - Witches Everywhere!

    I won't go past 1969! It will probably be rare for me to go past 1965, too, unless there's a movie that I really want to see. After Halloween, I'll be back to my favorite era (30s - 40s). I just feel like the 50s and 60s have a lot of good horror films.
