The Bounty Hunter

The Bounty Hunter (1954)   3/53/53/53/53/5

79 mins     Western      

You have to give Randolph Scott a lot of credit because he starred in a lot of what can only be called stereotypical, low budget 50s westerns, the sort that you can guess what will happen before the movie even starts. Yet Sco...

Vera Cruz

Vera Cruz (1954)   4/54/54/54/54/5

94 mins     Western      

With a cast lead by Gary Cooper and Burt Lancaster there is plenty which is great about 50s western "Vera Cruz" and by no means is it a run of the mill western. The basic storyline for a start which sees a hero and anti-hero ...

Bad Day at Black Rock

Bad Day at Black Rock (1955)   4/54/54/54/54/5

81 mins     Crime, Drama, Thriller      

"Bad Day at Black Rock" is a fascinating movie, it's an action thriller built on 3 things and does things differently to what you expect from a normal action thriller. There are no really big chases, no romantic subplots or s...

Run for Cover

Run for Cover (1955)   3/53/53/53/53/5

93 mins     Western      

"Run for Cover" is one of those westerns which when you look at who was involved you get what you expect. As such director Nicholas Ray brings a nice touch of colour and depth to the visuals which make it a rich and beautiful...

Jubal

Jubal (1956)   4/54/54/54/54/5

100 mins     Western      

In many a western from the 50s there was usually an element of romance where the hero gets the pretty girl, but it was there out of being a text book requirement rather than really adding anything to the movie. "Jubal" is dif...

Torpedo Run

Torpedo Run (1958)   3/53/53/53/53/5

98 mins     Drama, War      

Where does ones loyalties lay when you're a commander of a submarine, do they lie with your country or with your family. It's one of the better elements which go into making "Torpedo Run" starring Glenn Ford and Ernest Borgni...

The Badlanders

The Badlanders (1958)   3/53/53/53/53/5

85 mins     Western      

To my shame I have never watched John Huston's "The Asphalt Jungle" so although I know that "The Badlanders" is a western remake I can't say how much of a remake it is or which one is better. Although having watched "The Badl...

The Vikings

The Vikings (1958)   4/54/54/54/54/5

116 mins     Action , Adventure , Drama      

Before I watched "The Vikings" I had for some reason thought it was an epic, one of those movies which pass the 3 hour barrier. I don't know why, maybe because it has that look of one of those big historical epics, but at jus...

The Flight of the Phoenix

The Flight of the Phoenix (1965)   4/54/54/54/54/5

142 mins     Adventure , Drama      

Watching "The Flight of the Phoenix" now I can't but help be reminded of "Alive" with it's storyline being about a plane crash and what the survivors went through. But they are very different movies with "The Flight of the Ph...

The Dirty Dozen

The Dirty Dozen (1967)   3/53/53/53/53/5

149 mins     Action , Comedy, Drama, War      

Growing up there were those movies which would be shown again and again on TV such as "The Great Escape" and "The Magnificent Seven". One of those movies was the first "The Dirty Dozen" which I watched so often that at one ti...

Ice Station Zebra

Ice Station Zebra (1968)   3/53/53/53/53/5

148 mins     Action , Drama, Thriller      

"Ice Station Zebra" is another prime example that even if you have the seemingly perfect cast and crew it doesn't mean that you will have a perfect movie. Here you have director John Sturges who gave us "The Great Escape" wor...

The Wild Bunch

The Wild Bunch (1969)   5/55/55/55/55/5

139 mins     Western      

The western genre often comes under a lot of stick for being cheesy and mass produced especially westerns from the 50s and 60s and to be honest there was a lot of b-movie westerns. But in amongst the masses of westerns there ...

The Poseidon Adventure

The Poseidon Adventure (1972)   4/54/54/54/54/5

117 mins     Action , Adventure , Disaster, Drama, Thriller      

Despite various remakes and different versions of Paul Gallico's novel the 1972 disaster movie "The Poseidon Adventure" starring Gene Hackman and Ernest Borgnine remains the best. Although saying that it is also a very stereo...

The Devil

The Devil's Rain (1975)   2/52/52/52/52/5

86 mins     Horror      

I read some where many years back that "The Devil's Rain" was one of the worst movies ever made, maybe it was back in 1975 when it was released with advertising making it out to be more than it ended up but watched 40 years l...
