Hometowns to Hollywood Posted by Annette Bochenek on Jan 22, 2020

In my opinion, I think that The Best Years of Our Lives (1946) is the finest depiction of post-war life for soldiers in America. Brilliantly directed by William Wyler, the film’s immensely talented cast delivers performances that are believable, moving, and emotional. Moreover they succeed in read more

Carry On #28: Carry On England

The Wonderful World of Cinema Posted by Virginie Pronovost on Jan 21, 2020

That’s it, I’ve done it. I’ve watched Carry On England. Mission accomplished. Many people “warned” me that is was one of the worst Carry Ons. It’s certainly not the best, but my viewing helped me understand better why it has such a poor reputation. Carry On Engla read more

Becker (1998) s01e15 – Activate Your Choices

The Stop Button Posted by on Jan 21, 2020

David Isaacs wrote this episode, which brings some immediate pluses. The jokes are funnier. Sometimes they’re a lot cheaper, but they’re always funny. And Saverio Guerra’s in the episode. Isaacs doesn’t give him much to do except be hilariously annoying, but it’s basically enough. If only read more

Carole & Co. Posted by carole_and_co on Jan 21, 2020

Did Alfred Hitchcock, shown with Carole Lombard on the set of "Mr. & Mrs. Smith," actually say "actors are cattle"? No, the iconic director claimed; according to him, he actually said "all actors should be treated like cattle."In late 1940, one of his figurative livestock got the chance to turn the read more

Rawhide (1951): Tyrone Power and Susan Hayward

4 Star Films Posted by 4 Star Film Fan on Jan 20, 2020

Though it’s easy for this film to be overshadowed by Clint Eastwood’s Rowdy Yates, in retrospect, Rawhide is a spare outpost western nevertheless loaded with tension and talent. It is set against the backdrop of a network of stagecoaches transporting mail across the continental United St read more

Evil (2019) s01e12 – Justice x 2

The Stop Button Posted by on Jan 20, 2020

There’s a lot going on in this episode of “Evil” but the only important thing—the only truly important thing—is it guest stars Gbenga Akinnagbe. It utterly wastes him in a “let’s not examine this too hard” plot about him being a radio comic in nineties Rwanda who encouraged the genocide. read more
