On Blu-ray--3-D Rarities: A Collection of Ultra-Rare and Stunningly Restored 3-D Films

Classic Movies Posted by KC on Apr 1, 2020

What struck me about Flicker Alley’s first edition of 3-D Rarities, a compilation of rare, vintage three dimensional films from 3-D Film Archive, was that the films were of such high quality that they were entertaining whether or not they were viewed in 3-D. I found the same to be true of the read more

The Irishman (2019, Martin Scorsese)

The Stop Button Posted by on Apr 1, 2020

The disconcerting part of The Irishman’s actually never-ending CGI isn’t the aging and de-aging, it’s star Robert De Niro’s creepy blue eyes. For the first half hour of the (three and a half hour runtime), I was trying to get used to De Niro’s CGI… makeup, but kept having problems with it, read more

Tiger King: Murder, Mayhem and Madness (2020) s01e05 – Make America Exotic Again

The Stop Button Posted by on Apr 1, 2020

So, luckily, businessman Jeff Lowe beating tigers at the end of last episode was just a horrifying teaser not the actual content of this episode. In fact, Lowe doesn’t hit a single animal in this episode. They don’t even use the footage again. And the ominous “Jeff Lowe takeover” of the zoo… read more

Sleuth (1972): Starring Laurence Olivier and Michael Caine

4 Star Films Posted by 4 Star Film Fan on Apr 1, 2020

I don’t play games. Many of my long-suffering friends would attest to the fact that this statement is only semi-facetious. Perhaps it must begin with what games are used for. They are recreational, diversions meant to be enjoyable so that two or people might gather together and have a memorab read more

The Best Picture Project Posted by Alyson on Apr 1, 2020

Bumblebee looks like all of us stuck at home right now. Wow, what a month it has been. Life went from blissfully normal to pandemic isolation real fast here in the US. Thankfully, my family is taking all the changes well and we’re all healthy. Before this all went down, I made one last trip to the read more

Carole & Co. Posted by carole_and_co on Apr 1, 2020

Meet Jane Alice Peters (right), 11, of 605 North Harvard Boulevard, Los Angeles. Jane, of course, is better known as Carole Lombard, the actress name she adopted when entering the film industry in the mid-1920s (and a name she'd take for official in the fall of 1936). While I believe this was taken read more

CAPTAIN NEMO AND THE UNDERWATER CITY

The Hitless Wonder Movie Blog Posted by Dan Day, Jr. on Apr 1, 2020

Earlier this week TCM showed CAPTAIN NEMO AND THE UNDERWATER CITY, a 1970 family-oriented fantasy-adventure made in England. I had never seen the film before. Even though this movie was released in 1970, it feels like something that should have come out at least ten years before. The success of Dis read more

Danger: Diabolik! (1968) Director/co-writer Mario Bava’s delicious artifact from the swinging ‘60s, based on an Italian comic, oozes style and sex from every pore. Bava and crew make the modestly budgeted production look like it cost millions of dollars, thanks to an endless parade of co read more

Gelateria (2019, Christian Serritiello and Arthur Patching)

The Stop Button Posted by on Mar 31, 2020

Once it’s clear directors Patching and Serritiello are going to be able to keep Gelateria going, the question becomes how can they possibly end it. The film opens with a lone figure on a rocky beach, yelling into the sea. The water has sound, the yells don’t have sound. Given how the film ends… read more

Chilling Adventures of Sabrina (2018) s01e11 – A Midwinter’s Tale

The Stop Button Posted by on Mar 31, 2020

It’s a Christmas special—or a Winter Solstice special—set before winter break for the teens, which adds to the weirdness because even though Sabrina (Kiernan Shipka) said farewell to beau Ross Lynch last episode… turns out they’re still going to the same school. Yes, even though she’s all read more

The Stop Button Posted by on Mar 31, 2020

Eat a la LA (and a la Lombard)

Carole & Co. Posted by carole_and_co on Mar 31, 2020

Our world was so different when this month started, wasn't it? We could watch movies in theaters, follow our favorite sports teams on TV, go to our jobs (assuming we had one). Now, as a result of something barely visible in the U.S. on March 1, it seems so long ago.Coronavirus has isolated America, read more

The Other Side of The Wind (2018): Resurrecting Orson Welles

4 Star Films Posted by 4 Star Film Fan on Mar 30, 2020

With the name of Orson Welles comes any number of conflicting connotations not far removed from his greatest achievement: Citizen Kane. However, if we had to try and pinpoint an apt superlative it would fall somewhere in between a mythic and Brobdingnagian titan of cinema. He was a personality like read more
