Joey, do you like movies about gladiators?

Swords and sandals: Once a matinee mainstay, the adventure subgenre is now all but extinct, kept alive by the occasional Conan movie or Titans clash. DVD helps, too, such as three new offerings from Warner Archive.

The Tarzan Collection Starring Jock Mahoney and Mike Henry

Contract a case of jungle fever.


Action

Rod Lott
What an unwieldy title The Tarzan Collection Starring Jock Mahoney and Mike Henry is. Then again, so many actors have donned the loincloth of Edgar Rice Burroughs’ iconic lord of the jungle across nearly 100 movies and counting, so specificity is required. This particular five-flick, five-disc set from Warner Archive rounds up the entire turns of the two men mentioned in the title.

The Naked Jungle

Red and black antennas waving, they all do it the same.


Drama

Rod Lott
Charlton Heston comes second-billed to eventual Sound of Music baroness Eleanor Parker in 1954's The Naked Jungle. Nowhere in the credits is there room to list the true stars — or at least the reason for watching: millions and millions of mean-ass ants.

Sorcerer

Fails to cast a spell.


Action

Rod Lott
William Friedkin spends a lot of time in his 2013 memoir discussing why Sorcerer didn't click with critics and audiences even though he believes it to be better than his previous film, The Exorcist. Now that Warner Home Video has reissued Sorcerer on Blu-ray, we can see what Friedkin's fuss is all about.
