Comet Over Hollywood Posted by on May 28, 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

Miss Fisher and the Crypt of Tears (2020, Tony Tilse)

The Stop Button Posted by on May 28, 2020

At no point does Miss Fisher & the Crypt of Tears introduce viewer unfamiliar with star Essie Davis’s television show, to which this film’s a sequel, “Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries.” The movie opens with an action sequence setting up Davis as an exquisitely dressed combination of Indiana read more

Doctor Who (2005) s01e04 – Aliens of London

The Stop Button Posted by on May 28, 2020

Director Keith Boak is back and it’s obvious from go some of the problem with Boak-directed episodes is Boak’s a bad director. Some of the problems are budgetary, but Boak and cinematographer Ernest Vincze even make the non-effects stuff look like bad digital video. There’s an anti-suspense suspens read more

A little bit of Lombard flies in on Blu-ray this August

Carole & Co. Posted by carole_and_co on May 28, 2020

It's a Carole Lombard film, if only partly so. Nevertheless, fans of World War I aviation epics have a lot to look forward to on Aug. 18, when "The Eagle And The Hawk" appears on Blu-ray.Why do I refer to it as a quasi-Carole movie? While she's third-billed, she frankly doesn't do very much. (It was read more

Doctor Who (2005) s01e03 – The Unquiet Dead

The Stop Button Posted by on May 27, 2020

So the time and space machine is imprecise? Is that a “Doctor Who” thing? They bumble through the time? Because this episode is supposed to be Billie Piper getting to see nineteenth century Christmas in Naples or someplace but instead they end up in Cardiff (Cardiff gets a lot of deriding this epis read more

Legends of Tomorrow (2016) s05e14 – The One Where We’re Trapped on TV

The Stop Button Posted by on May 27, 2020

I’m not going back to count, but I feel like at least half this season of “Legends” is them getting knocked off track for an episode then getting back on track by the end. It’s fine, there have been some great episodes, but there’s no momentum on the main plot. So while this episode is amusing—the read more

The Stop Button Posted by on May 27, 2020

Easter Parade (1948): Judy & Fred Together At Last

4 Star Films Posted by 4 Star Film Fan on May 27, 2020

There’s a slight disclaimer that must go with Easter Parade. It has very little to do with Resurrection Sunday. More so, it’s a premium excuse for a lavish musical. At least in this regard, it thoroughly accommodates its audience. The show starts off gloriously, not with dialogue, but w read more

From the Archives: Flight from Ashiya ( 1964 )

Silver Scenes - A Blog for Classic Film Lovers Posted by The Metzinger Sisters on May 27, 2020

Yul Brynner was such a good actor and he made a number of great films. He gave an especially good performance in this picture - Flight from Ashiya ( 1964 ) - as the pilot of a U.S Air Force Rescue Service helicopter who, in the midst of a storm, must rescue survivors from a shipwreck.  I read t read more

TCM Pick of the Month: Pre-Code

Shadows and Satin Posted by shadowsandsatin on May 27, 2020

I was so pleased to see that Five Star Final (1931) was airing on TCM as part of the network’s “Star of the Month” spotlight on Edward G. Robinson. I’ve had this film (on VHS) in my collection for many years, but it’s a lousy copy and, as a result, I’ve only seen it once or twice. Before read more
