 L'Adolescente / The Adolescent / Jeanne Moreau / 1979 / Film review
This, her second film, is an uncompromising and somewhat nostalgic look at sexual awakening in a young girl, set in the beautiful locale of the French provincial countryside.
Whilst visually the film is impressive, and we are treated to a fine performance from another former acting legend, Simone Signoret, the film does lack depth and intimacy.
The latter half of the film when the young Marie becomes envious of her mother and conspires to rekindle the passion between her parents has some touching moments but feels cold and contrived.

Each episode is filmed in a distinctive visual style which translates the spirit of each historical era, with the themes of love, death and war achieving epic proportions.
If anything the film serves a dishful of thought about the expectations that people have of each other – whether they be male or female, married or not, with families or without.

 Alien (1979) Film Review - MovieWeb
It was the "how." With a painterly eye and a manic pace, Scott gave the shadows of the starship Nostromo a pulse of their own, a nearly intangible breath, with just enough darkness to conceal the slick grace of the Alien onboard.
In some sense, it's wonderful to see a twenty year old film imagine a future that has, in many ways, already come and gone, gazing back at those bland, faded-green computer readouts with nary a graphic to be seen, when only wireframe was the best CG around.
Yes, indeed, this newest release of this classic film is every bit an improvement upon a thriller that's already difficult to improve upon, and if you've an ounce of sense, you'll head out to see it on the big screen.

For her the pop-culture image was not a subject (as it had been for Walker Evans) or raw material (as it had been for Andy Warhol) but a whole artistic vocabulary, ready-made.
Her film stills look and function just like the real ones—those 8-by-10-inch glossies designed to lure us into a drama we find all the more compelling because we know it is not real.
In the Untitled Film Stills there are no Cleopatras, no ladies on trains, no women of a certain age.

 At-A-Glance Film Reviews: Moonraker (1979)
It was certainly the intent of the producers to cash in on the space film craze.
The return of Jaws, from the previous film, was a good idea, but doing what they did with the character was not.
Moonraker's goofiness was judged artistically wrong, and however much money it had made, the next film would be more like Bond's more serious roots.

 The Nick Schager Film Project: Zombie (1979): B+
Zombie (1979): B+ Originally titled Zombie 2 as a craven attempt to piggyback on the success of Night of the Living Dead, Lucio Fulci’s Zombie has nothing to do with George A. Romero’s undead classic, though that doesn’t mean it’s not without its gruesome charms.
The Italian goremeister’s breakthrough film features not a single believable character or plot point, no semblance of narrative cohesion or momentum, scraggly editing, horribly dubbed dialogue and a deadening lack of subtext.
It just didn't strike the proper chord of self-satire or self-aware badness for me to actually LIKE it, although it is a film I could recommend for those who enjoy bad movies.

Certain portions of the Buck Rogers in the 25th Century theatrical film and TV series have been released by Universal, the studio that created and that owns the rights to the film and TV series, but it has never been released in its entirety.
The theatrical film version, along with the entire first season, and the second season episode The Guardians have been "officially" released by Universal.
I try to keep things in perspective by remembering that Universal is a major film studio and that they see Buck Rogers in the 25th Century as a 25-year-old TV series that didn't even run for two complete seasons.
