Part of the series: Lord D Film Reviews

A memorial series dedicated to our late host Lord Drachenblut

Five categories, each rated 0, 1, or 2, so that the final reviews range anywhere from 0 to 10, with 0 being the worst film ever, and 10, the best.

Each category asks two yes-or-no questions. If the answer to both is no, that category gets a 0. If only one is a yes, it gets a 1. If both are a yes, it gets a 2.

Plot

  • Does it make sense, and/or is free of huge holes?
  • Does it seem like it has not been done too often?

Main characters

  • Are they realistic?
  • Do you care about them?

Genre

  • Does it work for the plot?
  • Would this tale have been better in another genre?

Construction

  • Is the acting competent for the tale?
  • Are the production and/or editing competent?

Payoff

  • Did the film makers manage to do what they seemed to be intending?
  • Are you emotionally satisfied when the film is over?

Today on HPR we dip into the past and pluck out a gem for our Syndicated Thursday slot.
