The Gold Rush Review

The Gold Rush is one of Chaplin’s best films, as well as one of his most famous. It has been said that it is The Gold Rush that he most wanted to be remembered by, and it’s not hard to see why. Chaplin plays the part of the lone prospector, a young miner during the gold rush. After getting caught in a storm, he hurries to the only shelter that he can find, a wood cabin in the middle of the storm. It turns out that it is already inhabited, and by a tough criminal named Black Larson, no less, and the scene in which Charlie and Big Jim, another prospector, insist to Black Larson that they are going to stay is one of the countless memorable scenes in The Gold Rush.

Ikiru (1952 – Free Download) Japanese DVD-RIP

IMDB Rating: 8.3

Director: Akira Kurosawa

Starring: Takashi Shimura, Nobuo Kaneko, Shin’ichi Himori

Ikiru Review

Ikiru is a film about life. Constantly complex and thought-provoking, although simple at the same time, it tells a story about life’s limits, how we perceive life and the fact that life is short and not to be wasted. Our hero is Kanji Watanabe, the most unlikely ‘hero’ of all time. He works in a dreary city office, where nothing happens and it’s all very meaningless. Watanabe is particularly boring, which has lead to him being nicknamed ‘The Mummy’ by a fellow worker. He later learns that he is dying from stomach cancer and that he only has six months to live.

My Neighbor Totoro (1988 – Free Download) Japanese DVD-RIP

85 Min. | Animation – Family – Fantasy | April 1988

IMDB Rating: 8.2

Director: Hayao Miyazaki

Starring: Hitoshi Takagi, Noriko Hidaka, Chika Sakamoto

My Neighbor Totoro Review

From the brilliant “Walt Disney of Japan”, Hayao Miyazaki, comes a wonderful soothing film that everyone will simply embrace. Featuring stunning animation, endearing personable characters, and a heart-tugging storyline that’s simple, enchanting, and even dramatic. Sometimes you feel like you’re not watching an animated children’s movie, because the characters and the storyline seem so realistic. In My Neighbor Totoro, there’s no bad guy, no song numbers, and no references to pop-culture. Most cartoons feature these and it gets old and routine. Here we have a break from all of that and get a real masterpiece. Continue reading My Neighbor Totoro (1988 – Free Download) Japanese DVD-RIP

On the Waterfront Review

Back in the early 1950’s, after a movie had run its course at the theaters, it did not go to video. Nor did it go on prime-time TV, as that concept came up many years later. Instead, they put it on afternoon TV, sometimes around dinner time. Well, that’s when I’d come home from high school, and got to enjoy free black and white classics such as “High Noon” and “On the Waterfront”. It made a moviefan of me for life. Remember the effect of “On the Waterfront”, as I remember thinking about Terry Malloy in that final scene, “Wow, that guy’s got guts!
