Carole & Co. Posted by carole_and_co on Jul 15, 2020

This pic of Carole Lombard and ex-husband William Powell ran in the Minneapolis Star not long after they teamed on an adaptation of "My Man Godfrey" on "Lux Radio Theater" on May 9, 1938.

Night of the Living (LEGO) Dead!

Virtual Virago Posted by Jennifer Garlen on Jul 15, 2020

We're still in the grip of this endless pandemic, so I've been spending a lot of my time with my massive LEGO collection, where my love for classic horror movies often provides inspiration. Here's a zombie horde that would make George A. Romero happy! The zombie cheerleader is one of my all-time fav read more

Alphaville (1965) and Godard The Humanist?

4 Star Films Posted by 4 Star Film Fan on Jul 15, 2020

“That’s always how it is. You never understand anything and, in the end, it kills you.” As a simple rule of thumb — a heuristic if you will — you can learn much about a person based on what camp they fall into when it comes to the Nouvelle Vague. For simplicity’s read more

Upload (2020) s01e10 – Freeyond

The Stop Button Posted by Andrew Wickliffe on Jul 15, 2020

After ignoring the initial A plot but actually the B plot because Robbie Amell and Andy Allo are cute for eight episodes, this episode’s almost entirely about the mystery behind Amell’s death. And his missing memories. The ones he didn’t find out about until halfway through the season but didn’t read more

On Blu-ray: Robert Mitchum in a Film-Noir on the Range Blood on the Moon (1948)

Classic Movies Posted by KC on Jul 15, 2020

The moody, fatalistic feel of Blood on the Moon (1948) is unusual for a western, if not unheard of in the genre. Its noirish story of double-crosses and turf battles could be transported to rain-slicked city streets with little change, the plot points as well-suited to urban organized crime as cattl read more

Doctor Who (2005) s03e06 – The Lazarus Experiment

The Stop Button Posted by Andrew Wickliffe on Jul 14, 2020

What is this show’s problem with companions’ mothers? We briefly met new companion Freema Agyeman’s mom, Adjoa Andoh, in the season premiere and she seemed fine. Nope. She’s possibly even more annoying than previous companion’s mom Camille Coduri, which doesn’t even seem possible, but the read more

Imagine having that much fun with your ex!

“Like the movies. I see you. I like you. Love at first sight.” – Jean Gabin Jean Gabin has one of the great visages of the cinema. But in making such a statement you immediately run the risk of giving the wrong impression. To actually see him on the big screen is to know what I me read more

Join the Lombard lobby

Carole & Co. Posted by carole_and_co on Jul 13, 2020

Carole Lombard was featured in all sorts of movie memorabilia, among them lobby cards. Take this one, for instance, from the 1931 Paramount drama "I Take This Woman."

Enter the Fat Dragon (2020, Tanigaki Kenji)

The Stop Button Posted by Andrew Wickliffe on Jul 13, 2020

Enter the Fat Dragon is about Hong Kong super-cop Donnie Yen (already in a pound of makeup before he puts on the fat suit, presumably to look more age appropriate for love interest Niki Chow) who goes too far one too many times and finds himself busted down to the evidence room. After Chow dumps hi read more

Doctor Who (2005) s03e05 – Evolution of the Daleks

The Stop Button Posted by Andrew Wickliffe on Jul 12, 2020

Last episode I went in pretty hard on the British actors playing Americans but I think I may have emphasized accents too much. Hugh Quarshie’s accent isn’t bad. His performance is bad, his accent is fine. Whereas Andrew Garfield’s accent is bad and his performance is bad. Though even Garfield read more
