Christopher Lee in The Brides of Fu Manchu

Classic Film & TV Cafe Posted by Rick29 on Feb 24, 2020

This sequel to 1965's The Face of Fu Manchu is an unexpected improvement on Christopher Lee's debut as the Sax Rohmer's supervillain. Stylistically, it reminded me of an Avengers episode during the Mrs. Peel era--though it could have benefited from the presence of Steed and Mrs. Peel, of c read more

Musical Monday: Carnival in Costa Rica (1947)

Comet Over Hollywood Posted by on Feb 24, 2020

It’s no secret that the Hollywood Comet loves musicals. In 2010, I revealed I had seen 400 movie musicals over the course of eight years. Now that number is over 600. To celebrate and share this musical love, here is my weekly feature about musicals. This week’s musical: Carnival In Costa Rica (194 read more

Weird Melvin (1995) #4

The Stop Button Posted by on Feb 24, 2020

There is a very good chance Weird Melvin might gross me out next issue. Hansen gets pretty close in the cliffhanger, which features two lady monsters (a mother and daughter) pregnant with half-mutated giant insects, half-monsters. What’s most surprising is the grossness isn’t in Hansen’s detail read more

'Stand Tall!' -- what a concept!

Carole & Co. Posted by carole_and_co on Feb 24, 2020

Hope you've had a good weekend; I know I have. It has to do with something Carole Lombard knew a lot about -- screenplays. Specifically, with something I received Friday night:Yes, at the LA Under The Stars Film Festival, the award for feature screenplay -- most original concept went to my "Stand Ta read more

Interrogation (2020) s01e10 – I.A. Sgt. Ian Lynch & Det. Brian Chen vs Trey Carano

The Stop Button Posted by on Feb 23, 2020

The last episode. Finally the last episode. One could come up with the best order to watch the show, which isn’t the episode number order but also doesn’t work entirely randomly because some episodes jump ahead six years and whatnot—also there’s no point in making the order because you shouldn’t read more

Quote of the Week

The Timothy Carey Experience Posted by Marisa on Feb 23, 2020

(WOW it’s been over a year since I’ve posted! I’m so sorry. Trying to get my life back on track; I promise to post more often!) Standing at 6’4 with a tornado of jet black hair, piercing blue eyes and more swagger and verve than every founding father and mother of rock & read more

'This is romance. This is devotion. This is love.' Hitchcock style, that is.

Carole & Co. Posted by carole_and_co on Feb 23, 2020

Carole Lombard had built a reputation for unpredictability over the years. So in the fall of 1940, it shouldn't have beenthat much of a surprise that after four consecutive dramatic films, she'd return to comedy -- her most popular genre -- by calling on the master of suspense to direct her.Alfred H read more

Little Women’s (2019): Gerwig’s Spirited Adaptation of An American Classic

4 Star Films Posted by 4 Star Film Fan on Feb 22, 2020

I once had the opportunity to tour Louisa May Alcott’s house on a family vacation. It’s one of those experiences I’m not sure you appreciate until you have the time and space to look back on it. However, even then I think there was this innate understanding of how this beloved book read more

Interrogation (2020) s01e04 – L.A. County Psychologist Marjorie Thompson vs. Eric Fisher 1984

The Stop Button Posted by on Feb 22, 2020

One of the few benefits of watching “Interrogation” in a non-linear fashion is initially missing out on certain trope episodes, like this one. This one is the trial, with a very poorly exposited look at Kyle Gallner’s trip through the criminal justice system as a minor. Albeit as a thirty-four read more

'Dressing' with plenty of 'oomph'

Carole & Co. Posted by carole_and_co on Feb 22, 2020

"We're Not Dressing" is an atypical Carole Lombard vehicle, in that* It's really a Bing Crosby film, complete with hits for him to sing. She was merely his leading lady. * The supporting cast is strong for a movie of Carole's -- Ethel Merman, Leon Errol, a young Ray Milland, even George Burns and Gr read more

Interrogation (2020) s01e05 – Det. Dave Russell vs Chris Keller 1983

The Stop Button Posted by on Feb 22, 2020

Still the eighties, still the investigation. Though we do get to see David Strathairn and Peter Sarsgaard facing off after the murder. Sarsgaard is very whispery with Strathairn, who’s telling him to investigate Kyle Gallner’s friend, third-billed but rarely onscreen for very long Kodi Smit-McPhee. read more
