Criterion: Theatre of Blood (**1/2) Burning down the house

This film is one of the better Price performances. If you want to see him for what made him famous enough to be on Thriller, start with this.

Criterion: The Getaway (**1/2) slow and uneasy

Ultimately, I think this film only serves as a time capsule for what qualified for popular action in 1972. If I had a parallel for today, one could place something in the Fast and Furious franchise for its equivalent. Not sure we’ll ever see any of the FF movies on Criterion. This one shouldn’t be on here, anymore than Armageddon or The Rock.
