Hometowns to Hollywood Posted by Annette Bochenek on Dec 4, 2016

In 1930, Comic Artist Chic Young sat down to work, his mind ablaze with the colorful chaos that can only accompany a good idea. Known for his lighthearted comics about fickle flappers, he sought out to sketch a new plotline about yet another carefree flapper. Panel after panel, Young gradually penn read more

Journeys in Classic Film Posted by on Dec 4, 2016

Originally published December 1st, 2014 As one comment on the Facebook page read when I alluded to my less-than-positive review of this film, it may be time to get out your pitchforks, readers.  It’s not that I didn’t like The Shop Around the Corner; it’s just not my favorite Ernst read more

Hometowns to Hollywood Posted by Annette Bochenek on Dec 3, 2016

When one reflects upon classic film, television, and radio, it is easy to recall legendary show business pairings. These dynamic duos were in complete harmony with one another, and their quips on or off-screen seemed organic, natural, and flawless. Each party was unique and balanced the other out, read more


The Hitless Wonder Movie Blog Posted by Dan Day Jr. on Dec 3, 2016

Kino Lorber, through their Studio Classics line, has released the 1986 film BIGGLES on Region A Blu-ray. (On the disc case the movie is sub-titled ADVENTURES IN TIME, but the actual movie only has the title BIGGLES.) The most noticeable thing about this picture is that it is the last theatrically re read more

10 Things I Hate About You (1999)

4 Star Films Posted by 4 Star Film Fan on Dec 3, 2016

The opening notes of Joan Jett hollering “Bad Reputation” made me grow wistfully nostalgic for Freaks & Geeks reruns. The hope budded that maybe 10 Things I Hate About You would be the same  tour de force narrative brimming with the same type of candor. It is not. Not at all. But tha read more

Perry Mason: The Case of the Lady in the Lake (1988, Ron Satlof)

The Stop Button Posted by Andrew Wickliffe on Dec 3, 2016

There are many things wrong with Perry Mason: The Case of the Lady in the Lake, starting with the title being a little long followed by the first red herring in the movie, which is in its first scene. Then the next red herring is in the second scene and so on and so on. Actually, I don’t think I re read more

Lady on a Train (1945)

Journeys in Classic Film Posted by on Dec 3, 2016

Originally published December 15th, 2015 Maybe it’s the forced togetherness and spirit of brotherhood that makes the holidays so perfect for the noir genre. Whether it’s the glittery Hollywood pulp of Kiss Kiss Bang Bang (2005) or the nightclubs and trains in Lady on a Train, the subgenr read more

Dreamscape (1984, Joseph Ruben)

The Stop Button Posted by Andrew Wickliffe on Dec 3, 2016

Dreamscape has a lot of subplots. The main plot barely gets any more time during the second act than the subplots. But I’m getting ahead of myself because I wanted to talk about the first act, which has Dennis Quaid getting reacquainted with mentor Max von Sydow. The film opens with this fast, fun read more

o/t: leisure reading in November

Noirish Posted by John Grant on Dec 2, 2016

I decided to devote this month to reading fiction in translation, and for the most part had a moderately good time, the standout being Sascha Arango’s The Truth and Other Lies (thanks to Mrs Peabody for my copy of this splendidly twisty novel), though Claudia Piñeiro’s All Yours ran it read more
