    I don’t know what else to say about this film that hasn’t been said before. Like nearly all of Frank Capra’s filmography, Mr. Deeds Goes to Town is flawless and provoking. Then, there’s Gary Cooper and Jean Arthur, who embody everything I love about movies.

    Heading into this, I was cautious of this film’s quality, but it’s loads of fun. Definitely exceeded my expectations. The buildup to the showdown between our title ghouls is well structured, like sequels in the respective franchises running parallel to each other until the plots ultimately meet. Throughout, there are some real standout spooky scenes that build the anticipation for the main event. The fight itself works because it feels like it belongs or matters and is not overly cheesy. That’s thanks to writer/director Kōji Shiraishi, who certainly understood what his film should do and what it should be.

    OK, so the opening narration asks us to watch out for clues as to which character is the werewolf. They’ll even give us 30 seconds on the clock during the movie to make our guesses. Neat gimmick...but there’s never any damn clues! It’s almost like they forgot to put them in. The script is so simple and boring that everyone and no one is suspicious at the same time. 

    Then there’s the werewolf that’s just a dog in a costume that we saw for all of 2 minutes, maybe.

    I really wish I took a nap instead of watching this movie.

    Unfortunately, this is an example of the all too common 50s horror sci-fi film that cannot live up to its amazing poster art. This flick feels like it’s 3 hours long despite being only 1, and it’s frustratingly mundane.


    EDIT - I’ve had a few hours to think about it, and I’m actually pretty pissed that I wasted a whole hour watching this movie. If I’m this mad after watching a movie, I have to edit my original 1 star…
