    The Great Train Robbery

    ★★★★★

    Prompted to rewatch this after seeing a clip of Scorsese talking about its influence on Goodfellas. I'd forgotten how brutal it is!

  • Tales of Terror

    Tales of Terror

    ★★★★

    I can guarantee you will always, always have a good time if you are watching Vincent Price and this is no exception (look out for his wine-tasting faces because I still haven't recovered). And you've got Peter Lorre into the bargain! Doing his magnificent awful/creepy/hilarious combo. A delicious Richard Matheson script lifts this even further.
    Overall a really good fun, solid Poe/Corman trilogy - with a surprisingly gruesome end!

    Why am I wasting my time watching any film that does not have Jean Arthur in it?

    A scrumptious sugarpuff of a film in the best possible way: I adored it. Jean Arthur is absolute magic. She has such a talent for comedy, both physically and in her delivery, and I love everything about her. She looks so cute here, too - in her work outfits, in her stripey pyjamas, and that supercute playsuit when she's up on the roof!…
