4 Star Films Posted by 4 Star Film Fan on Jan 30, 2023

Agnes Varda became a modern-day cinema celebrity in the 21st century thanks to her immediately recognizable profile and modern incarnations of her work like Vague Visages. Because it’s true she never stopped creating, never ceased exploring this terrestrial sphere. Watching something like La read more

Avatar: The Way of Water

The Best Picture Project Posted by Alyson on Jan 30, 2023

Personally, I enjoy James Cameron’s Avatar films more than I like to admit. I geek out over the technical achievements, the stunning visuals, the unique combination of motion capture acting and CGI. Most of all, the Avatar movies are incredibly immersive. They’re truly an escape that I don’t mind read more

Comet Over Hollywood Posted by on Jan 30, 2023

Drama Among the Country Club Set in Banning

Classic Film & TV Cafe Posted by Rick29 on Jan 30, 2023

Wagner as Mike Banning.Banning (1967) often gets categorized as a golf movie--heck, it was even shown on the Golf Channel at one time. It does involve golfing, particularly during the climax, but the reality is that Banning is the equivalent of a big screen soap opera--and I mean that as a read more

ReMIND Classic TV Magazine

Silver Scenes - A Blog for Classic Film Lovers Posted by The Metzinger Sisters on Jan 30, 2023

Last week I discovered the neatest magazine and in the most unlikely location - Dollar Tree. The magazine is ReMIND and it is filled with articles and fun stuff related to classic television shows and pop culture of the 1950s-1990s, plus loads of trivia games. Little did I know that this m read more

Aftersun: Too Intimate for the Oscars, Rant Part II

Cary Grant Won't Eat You Posted by Judy on Jan 29, 2023

Aftersun deserved best picture & directing Oscars this year, but it had no shot. The Academy doesn’t like to award intimate little stories about relationships. They like loud message films, and loud action films, and stories about men being men. And when they (rarely) pivot their patterns read more

It’s Not Horror, It’s Noir: El Vampiro Negro (1953)

Shadows and Satin Posted by shadowsandsatin on Jan 28, 2023

I didn’t know what to expect from El Vampiro Negro. Because it was a Flicker Alley release, and preserved by the UCLA Film and Television Archive, I figured it would surely be worth my time, but as a firm disliker of horror films (and vampires in particular), I’ll admit that the title threw me off read more

Rentaghost ( 1976-1984 )

Silver Scenes - A Blog for Classic Film Lovers Posted by The Metzinger Sisters on Jan 28, 2023

"If your mansion house needs haunting just call Rentaghost..." Growing up in England in the 1970s, you would no doubt remember Rentaghost, a children's show that had a delightful blend of punny humor and downright silliness, not to mention an unforgettable theme song! A ghost never dies....and read more

Comet Over Hollywood Posted by on Jan 26, 2023

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

The Leo Grande Snub & More Oscar-Related Reasons I’m Pissed Off, Part I

Cary Grant Won't Eat You Posted by Judy on Jan 25, 2023

Good Luck to You, Leo Grande. An enjoyable, meaningful film about a woman dealing with sex and her self-worth in middle age. A nuanced story, with a sympathetic portrait of sex workers. It gets nada from the Academy. A subtle, star-making turn by Daryl McCormack–ignored. And Emma Thompson not read more

The Family Way ( 1966 )

Silver Scenes - A Blog for Classic Film Lovers Posted by The Metzinger Sisters on Jan 25, 2023

The Family Way is one of those films that you have probably heard a lot about but never bothered to watch, thinking it to be just a routine British drama. But it is not routine. And it is worth watching. The plot may sound simple, certainly not something one would build a film around, and yet it is read more

The truly delightful Theodora Goes Wild (1936) is an underappreciated gem of the screwball genre, one that ought to be much better known today among fans of classic romantic comedy.
