    "A boy and his bird. Touching."

    Major blindspot crossed off my list. Love it and totally see why it is beloved by its fans.

    Son of Frankenstein

    ★★★★

    Solid movie. The sets are pretty cool, with some nice expressionistic details. This one doesn't quite have the same power as the first two films. Karloff is good, but it is easy to see why he left the character of the monster after this movie.

    Basil Rathbone is fun in this movie, but Bela Lugosi's Ygor is the real reason to see this. One of his best performances.

    Lionel Atwill (Doctor X, Mystery of the Wax Museum) is always reliable for this kind of movie, especially in this one as the inspector. If you've seen Young Frankenstein, you will probably chuckle.

    Overall, a fun monster movie.

    Look, it doesn't always land but clearly everyone is having a good time. I had some joy watching this, especially after seeing Blonde.
