Shipmates Forever ( 1935 )

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

Singing sensation Dick Powell and dancer Ruby Keeler were a match made in musical heaven and they had great success in the early 1930s as an on-screen duo. In 1934, Warner Brothers teamed them up in Flirtation Walk, a light-hearted musical set at the West Point Military Academy. The studio reeled in read more

Elite Squad (2007, José Padilha)

The Stop Button Posted by on Apr 4, 2020

Elite Squad is about how hard it is to be a fascist stormtrooper in Rio de Janeiro, because not only do you have to deal with militarized criminals, corrupt cops, smooth-talking (and sexy) liberals, you also might have a wife who doesn’t like you being a fascist stormtrooper or some dead kid’s mom read more

Chilling Adventures of Sabrina (2018) s01e14 – Lupercalia

The Stop Button Posted by on Apr 4, 2020

I’m not sure if I’ve ever known the word “fecund,” but thanks to this episode of “Sabrina,” I do now and beware. I’m always looking for a good adjective. It comes up when Richard Coyle is sweet-talking Miranda Otto and, although Coyle is one of the least dynamic casting choices, he’s read more

Becker (1998) s01e20 – Drive, They Said

The Stop Button Posted by on Apr 4, 2020

There’s a disconnect during the opening titles; it says, “Written by David Isaacs and Ken Levine” (or however they do it), but it’s not a particularly good scene. Jonathan Nichols is a patient who stiffs Becker (Ted Danson) on his bills so Danson is mean to him. Beating up on the patient… read more

Let Irene and Hazel come to your coronavirus rescue

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

If Irene Bullock and Hazel Flagg had somehow crossed paths in a cinematic Manhattan of the mid-1930s, what might have they said to each other, aside from "You look like someone I know quite well"? It's open for conjecture, but what isn't is that both serve a public benefit more than 80 years later.T read more

Tiger King: Murder, Mayhem and Madness (2020) s01e07 – Dethroned

The Stop Button Posted by on Apr 3, 2020

Based on his interviews this episode, it appears Jeff Lowe spent years getting Joe Exotic more and more enraged over Carole Baskin so at some point Lowe would be able to convince Exotic to hire someone to kill her. Possibly even just Allen Glover. Both “Doc” Antle and Joshua Dial think Joe was set read more

Chilling Adventures of Sabrina (2018) s01e13 – The Passion of Sabrina Spellman

The Stop Button Posted by on Apr 3, 2020

Big development this episode… Satan, Lucifer, the Dark Lord, et cetera, is an active character. He appears as a goat-headed demon and whoever does the voice isn’t credited (whoever’s doing it isn’t the right casting) and He wants to get Sabrina (Kiernan Shipka) to do his bidding. Not because read more

The Man Who Would Be King (1975): Starring Sean Connery & Michael Caine

4 Star Films Posted by 4 Star Film Fan on Apr 3, 2020

There is a sense that John Huston is on a tear to prove he can outdo David Lean. However, this might only be an observation based rather unfairly on circumstance. Because Huston purportedly meant to make the picture at numerous junctions in his career, though it never got off the ground with any of read more

Little Women (2019, Greta Gerwig)

The Stop Button Posted by on Apr 3, 2020

Little Women has two parallel timelines. There’s the present, starting in post-Civil War New York City with teacher and pulp writer Saoirse Ronan living in boarding house (where she also teaches). Then it flashes back to Ronan’s life seven years earlier, at home in rural Massachusetts; she’s the read more

Books that Make Bad Films: My Cousin Rachel

Cary Grant Won't Eat You Posted by Judy on Apr 3, 2020

I had hopes for My Cousin Rachel (2017). I don’t know why. I’d already discovered–despite my enjoyment of the 50s version–that the book wouldn’t translate well to film without a big overhaul. I guess I hoped a director smart enough to cast Rachel Weisz in the key role w read more

The lady picked 'By Choice'

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

"Lady By Choice" would be the last of five films Carole Lombard made at Columbia, and the only one made after her pivotal success there with "Twentieth Century." The title implies a relation to an earlier Columbia hit, "Lady For A Day," although such ties are in name only (pardon the pun). Frank Cap read more
