Watching 1939: Drums Along the Mohawk (1939)

Comet Over Hollywood Posted by on Jul 10, 2020

In 2011, I announced I was trying to see every film released in 1939. This new series chronicles films released in 1939 as I watch them. As we start out this blog feature, this section may become more concrete as I search for a common thread that runs throughout each film of the year. Right now, th read more

Doctor Who (2005) s03e04 – Daleks in Manhattan

The Stop Button Posted by Andrew Wickliffe on Jul 10, 2020

So… Nicholas Briggs does do the Dalek voices in this episode. He’s been doing all of them, which is weird because the Dalek voices this episode are terrible and so… I figured it was other actors. But no. It’s Briggs. And he’s terrible. I was waiting for the Daleks to show up—they’re trying read more

The Stooge (1952): A Martin & Lewis Biopic?

4 Star Films Posted by 4 Star Film Fan on Jul 9, 2020

If the story holds, Jerry Lewis named The Stooge among his favorites of the work he did during his famed partnership with Dean Martin. This was the sole reason for watching it and this is probably the most effective lens in considering what to make of it. The plot itself follows a show business nar read more

Warren William as Perry. Raymond Burr will always be Perry Mason for millions of mystery fans, but Erle Stanley Gardner’s lawyer hit the big screen twenty years before the long-running TV series.

Noir Nook: Noir Vets on Mystery Science Theater 3000

Classic Movie Hub Blog Posted by Karen Burroughs Hannsberry on Jul 9, 2020

Noir Nook: Noir Vets on Mystery Science Theater 3000 I don’t know about you, but I have a tendency to get into cinematic obsessions. One week, I won’t want to watch anything but William Holden movies, another week, nothing but westerns. You get the idea. Well, I’m currently in the midst of read more

In the mood for some 'spring rain'?

Carole & Co. Posted by carole_and_co on Jul 9, 2020

Many of us in the U.S. could use it under the stifling heat engulfing much of the nation, and that Carole Lombard pic can cool the psyche. Note the caption:It's from International Newsreel, a Hearst property (headquartered in the Examiner Building in Los Angeles):This heretofore unseen (to me) still read more

The Unpopular Opinions of a Film Addict

The Wonderful World of Cinema Posted by Virginie Pronovost on Jul 8, 2020

This type of content is very popular (!) on YouTube channels, and I thought I would take it on WordPress for a (hopefully) fun article. Hey, I’m not claiming that I’m reinventing the wheel and that nobody has ever done that on their blog before (actually, I’m sure tons of people h read more

Doctor Who (2005) s03e03 – Gridlock

The Stop Button Posted by Andrew Wickliffe on Jul 8, 2020

Really nice direction from Richard Clark this episode; really nice. It’s a strong episode overall, because it’s set out in space in the future, which are usually the best “Who” episodes (so far), but this episode manages to do it with a bunch of regular humans. Well, not regular humans. 5 billion read more

On Blu-ray: Milos Forman's Giddy, Energetic Hair (1979)

Classic Movies Posted by KC on Jul 8, 2020

When I was a kid, I used to love listening to my dad’s records. While he favored jazz, there were other things in the mix, like 60s rock, soundtracks and a few other pop culture touchstones, and that included the original Broadway cast recording of Gerome Ragni and James Rado's Hair. I donR read more

Doctor Who (2005) s03e02 – The Shakespeare Code

The Stop Button Posted by Andrew Wickliffe on Jul 7, 2020

I was expecting more from The Shakespeare Code. Dean Lennox Kelly’s Shakespeare is rather wanting. The characterization of it all seems more Knight’s Tale than anything historical or original. There are numerous quotations throughout, usually David Tennant making a quip and Kelly saying he’s going read more
