Movie Reviews

The heart of Lyles Movie Files is the movie review section. Here’s where you can find my thoughts on the hundreds of films I’ve reviewed.

Reviews are typically added every Friday although as I go through my backlog of movies in my collection some may get added more frequently. Movies are arranged so you can track them by title and by year of release.
