Clearing Out My DVR: Safe in Hell (it was hell!)

A Person in the Dark Posted by FlickChick on Oct 29, 2018

I love my DVR. Next to the Keurig coffee maker and the GPS, it is an invention that changed my life for the better. However, unlike the coffee maker, which gratifies me instantly with hot coffee and the GPS, that provides quick and (usually) correct directions, the DVR requires that I read more

Movie Classics Posted by Judy on Feb 27, 2010

It seems to me as if 1931 was a great year for William Wellman. He made five films that year, four of which I have now seen and loved – including his masterpiece The Public Enemy.
