Upload (2020) s01e07 – Bring Your Dad to Work Day

The Stop Button Posted by Andrew Wickliffe on Jul 6, 2020

As a streaming sitcom, filler doesn’t feel the same way in “Upload” as it does in a regular sitcom. “Upload” is not chasing that syndication deal, which in theory wouldn’t affect the A plot—dead guy Robbie Amell falling in love with his living virtual—actual—assistant Andy Allo—much read more

To celebrate and share this musical love, here is my weekly feature about musicals. This week’s musical: Summer Holiday (1948) – read more

Doctor Who (2005) s03e01 – Smith and Jones

The Stop Button Posted by Andrew Wickliffe on Jul 6, 2020

New only-other-billed actor (but technically not the new companion yet) Freema Agyeman guest starred at the end of last season but is playing a different character here. Thank goodness. Agyeman is a medical resident, so it’s going to be the Doctor and a doctor going forward, which is a lot better read more

Hometowns to Hollywood Posted by Annette Bochenek on Jul 5, 2020

“What I have got is I have character in my face. it’s taken an awful lot of late nights and drinking to put it there. When I go to work in a picture, I say, ‘Don’t take the lines out of my face. Leave them there.” –Humphrey Bogart Humphrey Bogart was one of the m read more

The Stop Button Posted by Andrew Wickliffe on Jul 5, 2020

Meet the man who owns the 'Godfrey' gown

Carole & Co. Posted by carole_and_co on Jul 5, 2020

It's one of the iconic costumes in Hollywood history -- the glittery gown Carole Lombard wore in the opening portion of the 1936 screwball classic "My Man Godfrey." And here's how it looks today, saved for all to see (when exhibited):We've previously written about how the "Godfrey" gown -- a Travis read more

Doctor Who (2005) s03e00 – The Runaway Bride

The Stop Button Posted by Andrew Wickliffe on Jul 5, 2020

How does the Doctor (this time David Tennant) usually respond to his companion leaving the show for, presumably, their own projects? Does it matter if you inherent your companion from the last Doctor? Have English school teachers been reading themes on this subject for decades now? I’m vaguely curi read more

Silver Scenes - A Blog for Classic Film Lovers Posted by The Metzinger Sisters on Jul 4, 2020

This year marks the 100th anniversary of the birth of stop-motion special effects maestro Ray Harryhausen. I've been enjoying re-watching many of his films throughout the year but doubly entertaining is discovering all the wonderful books written about Harryhausen and his work.  A recent f read more

THE PLAINSMAN (1936)

The Hitless Wonder Movie Blog Posted by Dan Day, Jr. on Jul 4, 2020

Pandemics, social unrest, a screwed-up baseball season....none of that is going to stop me from buying cheap DVDs or Blu-rays whenever I can. My latest discount purchase is THE PLAINSMAN, a 1936 Western saga from the legendary Cecil B. DeMille. THE PLAINSMAN deals with three legends of the Old West read more

An atypical Independence Day

Carole & Co. Posted by carole_and_co on Jul 4, 2020

It's the 4th of July, but chances are not many of my fellow Americans are feeling all that patriotic this morning. The foes we're facing aren't the Axis powers Carole Lombard raised war bonds against but are, in their own ways, just as nefarious.The coronavirus pandemic has hit the U.S. harder than read more

It’s Love I’m After (1937): In Honor of Olivia De Havilland

4 Star Films Posted by 4 Star Film Fan on Jul 4, 2020

There is a very significant reason to be watching It’s Love I’m After at this time. Her name is Olivia de Havilland, and by some brilliant piece of Providence, she has just recently turned 104 years old! She, of course, was in her early 20s when this movie came out and what a charmer it read more

Doctor Who (2005) s02e13 – Doomsday

The Stop Button Posted by Andrew Wickliffe on Jul 4, 2020

The BBC does market research, don’t they? I’d love to see what their “Doctor Who” market research says as far as target audience. For instance, this episode—the momentous, earth-shattering (literally?) season finale, which will change the Doctor (David Tennant) forever–has the many experience read more

Upload (2020) s01e05 – The Grey Market

The Stop Button Posted by Andrew Wickliffe on Jul 4, 2020

Does “Upload” have a show bible the writers ignore—in this case Mike Lawrence, who at least writes a funny enough episode even if it completely breaks with the show’s established future logics-or does the show not have a show bible. Because it doesn’t lean heavy enough into the sitcom to not read more

SPACE: 1999--"Missing Link"

The Hitless Wonder Movie Blog Posted by Dan Day, Jr. on Jul 3, 2020

Regular readers of this blog know very well that Peter Cushing is my favorite actor of all time. Last night I finally viewed one of his most notable TV guest-starring roles--an appearance on an episode of the science-fiction series SPACE: 1999. The episode was titled "Missing Link", and it was first read more

Upload (2020) s01e04 – The Sex Suit

The Stop Button Posted by Andrew Wickliffe on Jul 3, 2020

Watching “Upload” do sexy is… uncomfortable. And not just because Allegra Edwards is loathsome and the episode frequently promises she’ll not be around then keeps bringing her back around. She and lead Robbie Amell are in therapy now. They still haven’t had sex because Edwards thinks the suit read more
