Ratings Key



★★★★
= Excellent. The best the genre has to offer.
★★★
1/2 = Very Good. Perhaps not "perfect," but undoubtedly a must-see.
★★★ = Good. Accomplishes what it sets out to do and does it well.
★★1/2 = Fair. Clearly flawed and nothing spectacular, but competently made. OK entertainment.
★★ = Mediocre. Either highly uneven or by-the-numbers and uninspired.
1/2 = Bad. Very little to recommend.
= Very Bad. An absolute chore to sit through.
NO STARS! = Abysmal. Unwatchable dreck that isn't even bad-movie amusing.
SBIG = So Bad It's Good. Technically awful movies with massive entertainment value.

Additions to the Index, Part 2

They just keep on a-coming (180 for this particular update) and there are no doubt more where these came from. The majority are foreign-language films, many of them have never been released in America and a good deal were never dubbed or released with English subtitles, so I may have a difficult time either finding or understanding the films listed here but I'll try my best with what I have to work with. There are a couple of obscure American and British films listed as well, but the majority are from non-English speaking countries, such as Brazil, China (namely Hong Kong), France, India, Indonesia, Italy, Japan, Malaysia, Mexico, Philippines, Poland, Spain, Sweden and Turkey. In addition to making this list, I've been working on the year overviews and they've been a lot of fun (and interesting) to research. 1953, 1954, 1955 and 1956 are now done and up.
