Blu Ray Film Reviews - Charade

Blu Ray Film Reviews – Charade. There is wonderful use of lighting in this film, you can see an example in the image to the right, the director of photography was Charles Lang, he had worked with Audrey Hepburn before on the film Sabrina and would work with her again on Paris When It Sizzles, How To Steal A Million and Wait Until Dark, Lang had been in the industry many years and was an experienced DP, his work on Charade is not his best but it is very good.

Blu Ray Film Reviews - Jason And The Argonauts

Blu Ray film review of Jason and the Argonauts. Jason and the Argonauts has everything you could possibly want in a fantasy movie, the plot is interesting and it has a beginning, a middle and almost an end, getting Bernard Herrmann to do the music score was also a stroke of genius, Herrmann’s score is very satisfying and really makes the film special. Ray Harryhausen considers Jason and the Argonauts his best film work.
