People complain constantly that "they don’t make them like they used to," when in fact, plenty of old movies are every bit as forgettable as bad movies made today, while some recent films rate as classics. However, whether they’re fresh or from the vaults, movies like 1964’s ‘Seven Days in May’ will always be welcome.

He toyed with several ideas, but began to focus on tales of animals taking revenge on human beings. He was referred to Daphne du Maurier's short story "The Birds," and found his next project. At Hitchcock's direction, the screenplay by Evan Hunter discarded most of Du Maurier's story (already dramatized on television), retaining only a seacoast setting and the unexplained attacks by flocks of birds of all sorts. The movie received far more publicity than PSYCHO had, probably become the most-promoted movie in Hitchcock's career, complete with the slogan "The Birds is coming." And it, too, was a smash hit, moving straight into popular legend; even ...

Lewis and writer Philip Yordan (whose name appears on the same card as the title of the movie) is a near-classic. If it doesn't quite achieve the upper levels of this hard-to-define, easy-to-recognize subgenre, it's still imaginative, beautifully photographed (by the great John Alton), taut and suspenseful. It's not as well known as other films noir, but it certainly deserves to be -- and this fine, if extras-free, DVD is the perfect way to own this well-made thriller. Cornel Wilde plays police detective Leonard Diamond, a lonely, hard-bitten man who considers it his personal duty to bring ...

title: Ghosts Of Mississippi function popUp(URL,NAME) { amznwin=window.open(URL,NAME,'location=yes,scrollbars=yes,status=yes,toolbar=yes,resizable=yes,width=380,height=450,screenX=10,screenY=10,top=10,left=10'); amznwin.focus();} document.open(); document.write(""); document.close(); studio: Warner Bros. Home Video MPAA rating: PG-13 starring: Alec Baldwin, Whoopi Goldberg, James Woods, Craig T. Nelson, Susanna Thompson, Lucas Black, William H. Macy, Lloyd Bennett release year: 1996 film rating: Three and a half stars reviewed by: Bill Warren Louis Colick's script for GHOSTS OF MISSISSIPPI is, by all reports, scrupulously authentic in all major details; Rob Reiner's direction is carefully paced, sober and responsible; some of the actors are particularly good. The movie deals with a compelling, important and still-timely issue, the 1963 murder of Mississippi civil rights activist Medgar Evers, and the attempts to convict the murderer of his crime.

title: Oxygen function popUp(URL,NAME) { amznwin=window.open(URL,NAME,'location=yes,scrollbars=yes,status=yes,toolbar=yes,resizable=yes,width=380,height=450,screenX=10,screenY=10,top=10,left=10'); amznwin.focus();} document.open(); document.write(""); document.close(); <br> studio: A-Pix Entertainment MPAA rating: R starring: Maura Tierney, Adrien Brody, Terry Kinney, James Naughton, Laila Robins release year: 1999 film rating: Three Stars reviewed by: Abbie Bernstein ‘Oxygen’ is a nasty but moderately involving thriller about a troubled cop squaring off against a smart sociopath. Madeleine Forrester (Maura Tierney) is a brilliant NYPD detective but a mess as a human being, dealing with a drinking problem and dangerous masochistic impulses. She crosses paths professionally with a criminal who calls himself Harry Houdini (Adrien Brody). Harry and his partner have abducted the wife (Laila Robins) of a rich man (James Naughton) and buried her alive in a grave, promising to disclose her location for the sum of $1 million.
