4 Star Films Posted by 4 Star Film Fan on Oct 14, 2021

Swing Shift (1984): Underrated Classic with Caveats

4 Star Films Posted by 4 Star Film Fan on Oct 12, 2021

Aside from films actually produced during the war years, I’m not sure if I can think of a film that highlights the homefront to the degree of Swing Shift. The soundtrack is also perfectly antiquated (sans Carly Simon) fitting the era and mood to add another definite dimension. It effectively t read more

NO TIME TO DIE

The Hitless Wonder Movie Blog Posted by Dan Day, Jr. on Oct 10, 2021

My Favorite/Least Favorite James Bond Allies

The Hitless Wonder Movie Blog Posted by Dan Day, Jr. on Oct 9, 2021

 Being an ally in a James Bond movie is like wearing a red uniform shirt on the original STAR TREK TV series--you're not gonna last very long. 007's allies are usually comic relief and/or sacrificial lambs, and they are so expendable that for the most part they don't make much of an impact.&nbs read more
