Good story idea poorly dramatized with excellent cast. What a disappointment.

3.0 out of 5 stars Flesh & Fantasy Diminishes with a Whisper, December 27, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Flesh and Fantasy (DVD)
The third segment of this film is a complete loss. The first segment begins well, but a badly conceived narrator's patter dilutes its effectiveness. The second segment, however is just right, hard as a diamond, cynical and cruel. Edward G. Robinson lifts his actor's reputation higher as the self made target of a fortune teller.

4.0 out of 5 stars Doris Day at her Best (which is saying a lot!), December 10, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Doris Day is at her superb best in this great musical. Despite a great outdoor musical number in the park, the film remains a little too stage bound, but we are lucky to have this on film for the ages.

This film and Pajama Game were Day's best films. Too bad she missed out on the film version of South Pacific.

4.0 out of 5 stars Even with all the names and jokes contemporary to the original production, the show still works., November 25, 2014

A pleasure to hear, especially after just seeing the current revival on broadway.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sublime, November 7, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Sublime. Every high school in America should make this part of mandatory assembly for its students. How else to receive a dose of Emily Dickenson's poetry while painlessly learning there is another step up in poetry after Dr. Seus. Sublime

4.0 out of 5 stars Too Good To Be True, June 20, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
The Grand Budapest Hotel (TGBH) is simply the most graceful, witty and best designed film of 2014, thus far (June 20th). I hope it finds an audience and makes money. Let's all lift our glasses to director Wes Anderson.

2.0 out of 5 stars Lustrous production values can't provide lift off for this film, March 12, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Despite exceptional production design, witty costuming and a lush budget, this film never musters enough steam to move it along the tracks.

4.0 out of 5 stars Exceptional performances boost interesting historical vignette., March 12, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
If only I'd had a three and a half star rating for this film. Alas, not. So I notch up my rating a bit. Interesting story, well directed and very well acted. Who knew Helen Bonham Carter could be so funny?
