Video Views Extra: New Review of an Older Movie

Many aspects of the production are dated, but the movie has become embedded into the childhood experiences of many Generation X’ers.

Brand New to Video Views

A brand of exploitation that feels surprisingly fresh considering how many tropes it recycles.

Everything emphasizes the Tall Tale aspects, from the electric, trippy cinematography to the larger-than-life performances of the lead actors.

Run Time: 1:30
U.S. Home Release Date: 2020-09-06
MPAA Rating: "NR" (Sexual Content, Profanity)
Genre: Drama
Director: Luis Bunuel
Cast: Silvia Pinal, Francisco Rabal, Fernando Rey, Margarita Lozano

Works as a blend of old-fashioned melodrama and subtle satire, with a dash of director Luis Bunuel’s well-known foot fetishism added for flavor.

The result is familiar Apatow: simultaneously funny and touching with elements of pathos to go along with the raunchiness.

Run Time: 1:39
U.S. Home Release Date: 2020-08-25
MPAA Rating: "R" (Sexual Content, Nudity, Profanity, Drugs)
Genre: Thriller
Director: Giuseppe Capotondi
Cast: Claes Bang, Elizabeth Debicki, Donald Sutherland, Mick Jagger

The final 30 minutes of this would-be Hitchcockian caper film prove unable to deliver on the promise of the early acts.

Plays well on the small screen because the essence of the film – an exploration of characters and their relationships – remains unchanged.

Run Time: 1:15
U.S. Home Release Date: 2020-08-11
MPAA Rating: "G"
Genre: Animated
Director: Bill Melendez, Phil Roman
Cast: Arrin Skelley, Daniel Anderson, Patricia Patts, Casey Carlson, Bill Melendez

At its best, it captures the flavor of the beloved comic strip gang but things start to drag after a jaunty first half-hour or so.

The movie is pure Dangerfield – a thinly-sketched narrative providing a clothesline onto which the comedian could pin a long string of gags and one-liners.

Run Time: 1:34

MPAA Rating: "R" (Disturbing Images, Profanity, Sexual Content)

Cast: Kevin Bacon, Amanda Seyfried, Avery Essex

In the realm of throwaway horror flicks, there’s a place for "You Should Have Left" but it doesn’t deliver enough to warrant being labeled as more.
