RECENT MOVIE REVIEWS
A flat and rather unemotional drama, "Island in the Sky" features John Wayne in an early progenitor of the disaster flick genre.
A morality play on the dusty prairie, "The Ox-Bow Incident" is a lean and often enthralling Western drama.
The original Best Picture Oscar winner remains eminently watchable in a fantastic new restoration for its first release on DVD/Blu-ray.
"Yellow Sky" is a solid Western, but it's even better when considered for its powerful subtext.
Never have I seen a military drama so done in by sex. Romance is not a recurring distraction in "Darby's Rangers"; the battle scenes interrupt the mush.
This 1939 classic mixes rollicking adventure with sand-strewn heartbreak, as three brothers join a Foreign Legion outpost ruled by a sadistic sergeant.
