I know of two Bad Education movies, both of which I really liked, but neither from 2015. One was a Pedro Almodovar movie (very creepy) and the other was a very recent Hugh Jackman movie about a real life high school principal.
I too prefer Oland, my older brother likes Toler better. I don't know anyone who prefers Winters."Charlie Chan at the Opera" (1936). A nice, clean print with great sound. Warner Oland is in top form as Charlie; so is Boris Karloff as an "escaped maniac."
"Charlie Chan in Egypt" (1935). Lousy print. Tries a bit too hard for laughs in spots. Interesting minor supporting role by Rita Cansino . . . later to be renamed Rita Hayworth. Oland is my favorite Chan; he certainly doesn't disappoint here despite the film's shortcomings.
What about The Grand Illusion?"Wooden Crosses" (1932), The Masters of Cinema BD/DVD #105. The French know how to make the best WW I films. While I love the 1919 silent "J'Accuse, the 2004 "A Very Long Engagement", the USA 1928 John Ford "Four Sons", and others, Wooden Crosses might be the best WW I film as it's all war, without a sappy side story getting in the way. Having bought a new multi-region BD/DVD player last week, that works with my 65" Sony TV, I can finally enjoy my PAL BD/DVD's again.
A great film. Thanks for reminding me. It's been years since I've seen that one. After your post I was debating whether to order the blu-ray, when I remembered I had a spindle full of 1930s dvd's in the basement that I had recorded off TCM 10+ years ago. Lucky for me Grand Illusion was one of them, so I watched it this morning. It was a great print to boot, so I saved $30 by skipping the Blu-ray.What about The Grand Illusion?
I doubt they will win Academy Awards but they were both excellent in it.Thunder Force, a comedic super hero movie. Best part is Jason Bateman and Melissa McCarthy's chemistry together. They've worked together and it shows, they are like two old vaudeville pros.
