Classic Movie Hub Blog Posted by Toni Ruberto on Apr 10, 2021

Nature Strikes Back in Eco-horror Films Is there anything scarier in horror movies than the truth factor? It doesn’t matter how far-fetched the plot or how loosely it may be based in reality, just a touch of “this did happen” or “this could happen” sets me on edge. (I haven’t watched read more

4 Star Films Posted by 4 Star Film Fan on Apr 8, 2021

Little Man, What Now? is a curious title although Carl Laemmle seems to believe in the tale even giving it a public service announcement to make the point very clearly. This is a story for every man even as it seeks to document the daily problems of the world. From the opening vignette, the movie p read more

Sound of Metal

The Best Picture Project Posted by Alyson on Apr 8, 2021

I first watched Sound of Metal a few weeks before correcting my vision with laser eye surgery. Anything more than a few inches from my face was an intangible blur without glasses. After the movie, I started to question my choice to get LASIK. I worried how my vision would be after surgery. Would it read more

Only Yesterday (1933): Margaret Sullavan Shines

4 Star Films Posted by 4 Star Film Fan on Apr 6, 2021

In the opening designs of Only Yesterday, the New York Stock Exchange is encapsulated by its usual hubbub only to hit the skids of pandemonium when the market crashes.

Being a fan of those early days musicals, Bernice Claire has been on my radar, but I have never seen her in anything. Thanks to good old TCM, I finally got to see her in "Spring is Here," one of those impossibly read more

Classic Movie Hub Blog Posted by Jennifer Garlen on Apr 5, 2021

Silver Screen Standards: Stagecoach (1939) I took a short ride in a stagecoach once, at the Old Tucson Western theme park in Arizona, and it permanently altered my impression of films like Stagecoach (1939), where travelers make long journeys in those noisy, dusty, bumpy conveyances.
