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

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

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

Doctor Who (2005) s02e12 – Army of Ghosts

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

One Earth episode without Camille Coduri was clearly too much so she doesn’t just appear in this one, she also pretends to be daughter Rose (Billie Piper) and play companion to David Tennant. Coduri and Tennant don’t grate as sharply as one might’ve feared (hard to imagine her and Christopher read more

Bride and groom, at last

Carole & Co. Posted by carole_and_co on Jul 3, 2020

It's March 30, 1939. Carole Lombard and Clark Gable look exuberant and they are...but despite the front the couple is putting up, they're also extremely tired, an understandable condition considering they had married on the sly the day before in Arizona. Despite the myths you may have heard (https:/ read more

The Cabin in the Woods (2011, Drew Goddard)

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

I didn’t have much hope for Cabin in the Woods; though, I mean, director and co-writer Drew Goddard… he’s gone on to stuff. Good stuff. Right? But if I’d known it was written in three days—it shows—and cost $30 million—it actually looks pretty darn good for $30 million, saving the money read more

The Bellboy (1960) and Jerry Lewis The Goofball Auteur

4 Star Films Posted by 4 Star Film Fan on Jul 2, 2020

The Bellboy is introduced by a witty disclaimer as a studio executive (a cameo by Jack Kruschen) explains this is a film based on fun. There is no story. No plot. Instead, it acts as a visual diary in the week of a real nut! He subsequently reels about in his chair laughing hysterically. It breaks read more

Encore Podcast: Elvis Presley -- Year One

The Man on the Flying Trapeze Posted by David on Jul 2, 2020

Encore Podcast: Elvis Presley wasn't born in 1956, but his career was. He began the year barely known outside the south, but under the management of Col.

Classic Movie Travels: Ruby Keeler

Classic Movie Hub Blog Posted by Annette Bochenek on Jul 2, 2020

Classic Movie Travels: Ruby Keeler Ruby Keeler When thinking of early musicals, the output of Warner Bros. studios is certainly worth noting. In the Gold Digger musicals and so many others, a wide variety of Warner Bros.’s triple-threat talents shone in the musical genre. Though Ruby Kee read more

The new streaming app Peacock TV officially launches on July 15, 2020. However, it's available now for customers of Comcast's Xfinity cable service. Most of the TV shows on Peacock are recent ones from NBC. A wonderful exception is Alfred Hitchcock Presents, the classic anthology series that aired f read more

Cool Hand Luke (1967, Stuart Rosenberg)

The Stop Button Posted by Andrew Wickliffe on Jul 2, 2020

Maybe a third of the way into Cool Hand Luke, the film all of a sudden starts getting really good. It’s when Jo Van Fleet makes her appearance, which provides the film both its single best acting—Newman and Van Fleet are exquisite in the scene—and also director Rosenberg showing he’s actually read more

On Blu-ray: Gregory Peck and Eva Marie Saint in The Stalking Moon (1969)

Classic Movies Posted by KC on Jul 1, 2020

I went into the western thriller The Stalking Moon (1969) knowing nothing about it and came out the other side feeling unsettled. It is of its time in the deep certainty it shows in its morals, which can make it a difficult watch. The film recently made its Blu-ray debut on Warner Archive. The Stal read more

June 2020

The Best Picture Project Posted by Alyson on Jul 1, 2020

My children asking for snacks….again. Hello summer! In between keeping my kids busy, fetching them popsicles and avoiding a certain plague I’ve found a little time to watch some new movies: I’m a little behind on my quest to watch 52 films directed by women this year, but plan to c read more

Lombard on lists, and a 'nurse's' masked reminder

Carole & Co. Posted by carole_and_co on Jul 1, 2020

Actress Maria Tura (Carole Lombard) is having an affair with Polish pilot Stanislav Sobinski (Robert Stack, top), much to the chagrin of her egotistical actor husband Joseph Tura (Jack Benny, bottom) in "To Be Or Not To Be," Ernst Lubitsch's 1942 dark comedy classic and the last film Lombard would m read more

The Confession Killer: Exploring the Complicated Case of Henry Lee Lucas

The Wonderful World of Cinema Posted by Virginie Pronovost on Jul 1, 2020

Aside from posting an announcement for the 5th Wonderful Ingrid Bergman Blogathon (*wink wink!*), I haven’t written a lot of my blog since I came back to Montreal. For this new blog article, I wanted to share with you one of the series I’ve discovered recently (I’m more in a serie read more
