NUGGET REVIEWS

"There's gold in them thar films!" 

There certainly is...and to help our readers sift through all the glittery golden gems that can be found
throughout the vast classic filmdom we hired old Pete the prospector to give us his "caret" ratings on every film we see.With the Nugget Reviews we'll give a little snippet synopsis and some quick comments about the flick and hopefully some readers will discover a hidden golden nugget whilst panning the flowing streams of Silver Scenes.

Ol' Pete knows pure gold when he sees it, so if he tells you it's a spud, it's a spud. You better believe it!



The Rating System : 



24 Carat *: This is glistening gold folks. You won't find any finer. Either the movie's entertainment is of such a high caliber that it earns this rating, or else the quality of the film deserves this rank, even if we personally may not have enjoyed it as much as some other films.

18 Carat : A grand find! It may not be the among the golden mother-load but it has many fine qualities and deserves to be glittering in the spotlight.

14 Carat : Standard fare. These are movies that are worth seeing once in a while, or if you have a personal taste for them. Your favorites can run along here. Ours do. Think "Goodbye Charlie" ( 1964 ). 


Electroplated Gold: This looks good from the title and the back of the dvd case but once you watch it you know you've been had. Big time. 

Fool's Gold: If you spent your time watching this then yer just as big a jackass as Pete's mule Harry. ( Of course, it takes one to know one...but don't let the word get around ).

* Always search for pure gold.
