    Great Expectations

    A gorgeous film, with stunning cinematography and brilliant performances. John Mills was too old as Pip, but his charming portrayal makes that irk irrelevant.

    Even without any knowledge of the Charles Darwin novel this adapted, the story was quite predictable, yet that does not affect how it actually played out.

  • Cult of the Cobra

    Cult of the Cobra

    This served as the first entry of a calendar based on film noir, yet it feels more rooted within the horror genre. It's basically a remake of the much superior "Cat People", with a few tweaks made to the plot.

    A few location shots were nice and the scenes with the cult were somewhat interesting. Everything else was completely boring. Neither the hammy acting nor cheap practical effects make this worthwhile.
