The Unpopular Opinions of a Film Addict

The Wonderful World of Cinema Posted by Virginie Pronovost on Jul 8, 2020

This type of content is very popular (!) on YouTube channels, and I thought I would take it on WordPress for a (hopefully) fun article. Hey, I’m not claiming that I’m reinventing the wheel and that nobody has ever done that on their blog before (actually, I’m sure tons of people h read more

Doctor Who (2005) s03e03 – Gridlock

The Stop Button Posted by Andrew Wickliffe on Jul 8, 2020

Really nice direction from Richard Clark this episode; really nice. It’s a strong episode overall, because it’s set out in space in the future, which are usually the best “Who” episodes (so far), but this episode manages to do it with a bunch of regular humans. Well, not regular humans. 5 billion read more

On Blu-ray: Milos Forman's Giddy, Energetic Hair (1979)

Classic Movies Posted by KC on Jul 8, 2020

When I was a kid, I used to love listening to my dad’s records. While he favored jazz, there were other things in the mix, like 60s rock, soundtracks and a few other pop culture touchstones, and that included the original Broadway cast recording of Gerome Ragni and James Rado's Hair. I donR read more

A book details the mysterious life of a Lombard tennis pal

Carole & Co. Posted by carole_and_co on Jul 8, 2020

Carole Lombard lived for less than one-third of a century, but the people she not only met, but influenced over that brief span are remarkable. One of them has been profiled in a biography published this spring, a book that not only celebrates, but re-evaluates her life.Tennis champion Alice Marble read more

Doctor Who (2005) s03e02 – The Shakespeare Code

The Stop Button Posted by Andrew Wickliffe on Jul 7, 2020

I was expecting more from The Shakespeare Code. Dean Lennox Kelly’s Shakespeare is rather wanting. The characterization of it all seems more Knight’s Tale than anything historical or original. There are numerous quotations throughout, usually David Tennant making a quip and Kelly saying he’s going read more

The Nutty Professor (1963): Jerry Lewis is Jekyll and Hyde

4 Star Films Posted by 4 Star Film Fan on Jul 7, 2020

I can bemusedly remember more than a few trips out to the high school football fields as our designated evacuation point for fire drills. The other times we ended up out there was more likely than not due to the chemistry department setting them off with some supernal explosion of their own devisin read more

Mr. Boop – Volume 1: My Wife is Betty Boop (2020)

The Stop Button Posted by Andrew Wickliffe on Jul 7, 2020

Mr. Boop is about being married to Betty Boop. The protagonist is Boop creator Alec Robbins, who is presumably not actually married to Betty Boop in real life because otherwise it’d be a series of photos not comics. Robbins, the comic protagonist, is very happy to be married to Betty Boop, who’s read more

Even without Lombard, a starry summer's in sight

Carole & Co. Posted by carole_and_co on Jul 7, 2020

Good news for Claudette Colbert fans, bad news for Carole Lombard's. In a vote conducted by the fan site TCMBacklot.com, Colbert defeated Lombard in a runoff to gain a slot in this August's Turner Classic Movies annual extravaganza, "Summer Under The Stars."Carole last participated in SUTS in 2014. read more

Upload (2020) s01e07 – Bring Your Dad to Work Day

The Stop Button Posted by Andrew Wickliffe on Jul 6, 2020

As a streaming sitcom, filler doesn’t feel the same way in “Upload” as it does in a regular sitcom. “Upload” is not chasing that syndication deal, which in theory wouldn’t affect the A plot—dead guy Robbie Amell falling in love with his living virtual—actual—assistant Andy Allo—much read more

The BAFTA award for Best British Film was given to Sapphire in 1960 out of a field including Look Back in Anger, Tiger Bay, Yesterday's Enemy, and Northwest Frontier.

A Black Sheep and a Young Burl Ives

Classic Film & TV Cafe Posted by Rick29 on Jul 6, 2020

Bobby Driscoll as Jeremiah. Young Jeremiah Kincaid lives in a small Indiana town at the turn of the century--the kind of place where the train passing through is the highlight of the day for a youngster. One of those trains changes Jeremiah's life when it stops so that Dan Patch, the champion race read more

Musical Monday: Summer Holiday (1948)

Comet Over Hollywood Posted by on Jul 6, 2020

It’s no secret that the Hollywood Comet loves musicals. In 2010, I revealed I had seen 400 movie musicals over the course of eight years. Now that number is over 600. To celebrate and share this musical love, here is my weekly feature about musicals. This week’s musical: Summer Holiday (1948) – read more

Doctor Who (2005) s03e01 – Smith and Jones

The Stop Button Posted by Andrew Wickliffe on Jul 6, 2020

New only-other-billed actor (but technically not the new companion yet) Freema Agyeman guest starred at the end of last season but is playing a different character here. Thank goodness. Agyeman is a medical resident, so it’s going to be the Doctor and a doctor going forward, which is a lot better read more

Ennio Morricone (1928-2020)

The Hitless Wonder Movie Blog Posted by Dan Day, Jr. on Jul 6, 2020

How does one even attempt to define the majestic genius of Ennio Morricone?? Even declaring him the greatest and most prolific film composer of all time barely scratches the surface. Morricone's impact on popular culture--heck, modern society--is immeasurable. Morricone didn't just produce scores read more

'The Boys' are back, and (mostly) better than ever

Carole & Co. Posted by carole_and_co on Jul 6, 2020

Who can resist a 19-year-old Carole Lombard in lingerie? It's a still from the Mack Sennett two-reeler "Run, Girl, Run" from early 1928, where her athletic allure was a selling point. However, she wasn't the only future '30s icon whose sex appeal served that purpose. Over in Culver City, Jean Harlow read more

“What I have got is I have character in my face. it’s taken an awful lot of late nights and drinking to put it there. When I go to work in a picture, I say, ‘Don’t take the lines out of my face. Leave them there.” –Humphrey Bogart Humphrey Bogart was one of the m read more
