The Hitless Wonder Movie Blog Posted by Dan Day, Jr. on Feb 20, 2020

One of the things that has been trending among movie buffs on Twitter recently is #PreMakeAMovie. The premise is simple: take a recent film (or a relatively modern one) and "premake" it--that is, pretend the movie had been made years before, with a cast and crew befitting the times. It's a great an read more

Still of the Night (1982, Robert Benton)

The Stop Button Posted by on Feb 20, 2020

At the end of Still of the Night, the film puts aside the “whodunit” to give second-billed Meryl Streep—who’s playing the femme fatale part but not at all as a femme fatale—a lengthy monologue. It’s all one take, Streep just acting the heck out of this mediocre thriller monologue. It doesn’t read more

The Stop Button Posted by on Feb 19, 2020

As I continue putting way too much thought into “Interrogation,” this episode stands distinctly in the “anti” non-linear department. This episode sets up both the pilot—so the penultimate episode loops back to the first—but also seems to be setting up the next—last—episode. It’s all read more

Carole & Co. Posted by carole_and_co on Feb 19, 2020

Readers of the New York Sunday News magazine got a special treat in August 1938 -- Carole Lombard on the cover.
