79% The Longest Yard (1974) Part burlesque, part social commentary, it's a full out entertainment movie, saved from quick money facileness by the extraordinary "bad boy" comedy performance by Burt Reynolds and the quirky, offbeat direction of Robert Aldrich.‐ Los Angeles Free Press

69% Blood for Dracula (1974) Not quite as much fun as Frankenstein, but wonderful to look at, with some great jokes - including the myriad of accents displayed by members of the cast. However, as fun as it is at times, it can't compare with Bela Lugosi.‐ Los Angeles Free Press

43% The Trial of Billy Jack (El Juicio de Billy Jack) (1974) Don't be fooled by the ads which say the film contains the "most exciting karate sequences ever put on film"; it does not.‐ Los Angeles Free Press

No Score Yet The Second Coming of Suzanne (1974) Banal in the extreme.‐ Los Angeles Free Press
Read More | Posted Dec 10, 2019
No Score Yet That'll Be the Day (1973) That'll Be the Day perfectly captures the England that gave rise to the Stones (and Turner in Performance), the Beatles, Eric Clapton, The Who and the entire British (i.e., World) upheaval of the sixties.‐ Los Angeles Free Press

40% Earthquake (1974) Aside from accepting a poorly written script, director Mark Robson has done well with the suspense, building a tension in the first half of the film that can be cut with a knife.‐ Los Angeles Free Press

94% Young Frankenstein (1974) It would seem that nothing new or noteworthy could still be gleaned from the Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley creation, but Mel Brooks with Young Frankenstein has done just that.‐ Los Angeles Free Press

70% The Towering Inferno (1974) Like Earthquake, the script here is barely competent.‐ Los Angeles Free Press
Read More | Posted Dec 9, 2019
No Score Yet Steppenwolf (1974) Director [Fred] Haines obviously has talent, and he's cast his film with care, but the overall effect is somewhat limited; it does not do justice to Hesse and it does not really stand on its own.‐ Los Angeles Free Press

89% Murder on the Orient Express (1974) Its aspirations are admirable; unfortunately, the final film is a heavy-handed misadventure that fizzles flat like day-old champagne.‐ Los Angeles Free Press

91% Stavisky... (1974) Deceptively beautiful, deceptively linear, Stavisky is a complex and subtle work, a worthy successor to [Alain] Resnais' most controversial films.‐ Los Angeles Free Press
