Durnmoose Movie Musings Posted by Michael on Dec 8, 2019

Since Sunday tends to be a day of quiet and reflection for many people, it seems an appropriate day to celebrate silent movies. But in keeping with the “day of rest” theme, I’m just going to post this without any commentary and just sit back and let you enjoy. read more

R.D. Blackmore's classic novel "Lorna Doone" was brought to the big screen in 1934 for the first time as a talking picture.

Superstore (2015) s01e02 – Magazine Profile

The Stop Button Posted by on Dec 7, 2019

Two months have passed since the previous episode—based on how long new guy Ben Feldman has been at the store and he’s gotten a settled in. During those two months he’s apparently chilled on the America Ferrera romantic interest, or—more likely—the writers realized they were rushing that plot read more

Superstore (2015) s01e03 – Shots and Salsa

The Stop Button Posted by on Dec 7, 2019

This episode is one of those sitcom episodes where you’re laughing so loud and so constantly, there’s a chance you’re going to miss something. If it weren’t paced well. And it’s paced extremely well, between Ruben Fleischer’s direction and Justin Spitzer’s writing, there’s always the read more

Supergirl (2015) s05e08 – The Wrath of Rama Khan

The Stop Button Posted by on Dec 7, 2019

The episode opens with Supergirl flying to Lena’s secret base to try to reason with her but Lena ignores her because Lena’s already got the bestest friend she could ever have in Andrea Brooks, who used to be Ms. Teschmacher but is now the AI Lena created to keep her company when she planned on beat read more

“Meddling Kids”

The Stop Button Posted by on Dec 7, 2019

You know what’s not a word? Self-depreciating. Self-deprecating is a word, self-depreciating is not. I wish I’d consulted a dictionary in high school when I added the word—which I pronounced self-deprecating but a friend definitely told me it was pronounced self-depreciating; I could’ve won read more

Superstore (2015) s01e04 – Mannequin

The Stop Button Posted by on Dec 7, 2019

“Superstore” significantly ups its game this episode. The cold open has Jonah (Ben Feldman) trying to show off how well he’s bonded with his coworkers by unintentionally insulting most of them. The sequence ends in a great banter showdown between manager Mark McKinney and assistant manager Lauren read more

Myrna on the cover, Carole (and Fieldsie) inside: Now that's 'Modern'

Carole & Co. Posted by carole_and_co on Dec 7, 2019

Over the years, several actresses played Carole Lombard's best friend (think Una Merkel in "True Confession"). In real life, that honor went to Madalynne Field, the statuesque former Mack Sennett comedy cohort who also became Lombard's personal secretary for several years. (She's shown above with Ru read more

Saturday Double Feature: ?? and… ?

Durnmoose Movie Musings Posted by Michael on Dec 7, 2019

(Okay, let’s start with a quick recap of the “rules”, shall we? The basic idea here is to take a movie that is out in theaters now, and pair it up with another movie from the 1980s or before. Sometimes the connection will be obvious, and sometimes it’ll be a little less so, b read more

Becker (1998) s01e13 – Becker the Elder

The Stop Button Posted by on Dec 7, 2019

Whenever an episode of “Becker” starts, I hold my breath until the writing credit comes up. This one’s from series creator Dave Hackel, who likes doing the Ted Danson is a master doctor and basically right bastard; the episode opens with him ranting about little people. And even though it’s read more

All Rise (2019) s01e09 – How to Succeed in Law Without Really Re-Trying

The Stop Button Posted by on Dec 7, 2019

Okay, when I said “All Rise” reminded me of “Major Crimes,” maybe I shouldn’t have cursed the show with an Ever Carradine guest star. Carradine plays an old defense lawyer nemesis of Simone Missick’s, who’s got an appeal—she wants to get alt-righter, white supremacist Ben Leasure out read more

Becker (1998) s01e14 – Larry Spoke

The Stop Button Posted by on Dec 7, 2019

This episode of “Becker” has Steven Wright guest starring, so even though it’s not the best writing for Steven Wright, it’s still at least great whenever Wright is on screen. Wright’s a new patient of Ted Danson’s who hears God. God’s name is Larry and Larry tells Steven Wright to repaint read more

The Super Inframan (1975, Hua Shan)

The Stop Button Posted by on Dec 6, 2019

Until the third act, Super Inframan at least keeps a brisk pace. The movie’s got almost nothing going for it—other than Chen Yung—yu frankly courageous very seventies score and even it’s a small blip of goodness, not a positive feature—but at least it moves. It doesn’t drag through the entire read more

February 12 or December 2?

Carole & Co. Posted by carole_and_co on Dec 6, 2019

I've never seen either of these poses of Carole Lombard before, so I'm sort of excited to come across it. But I'm also confused about a few things. The back of the pics, for instance:Find that hard to read? I'll decipher it for you: 235 East 45th Street, New York CitySyndicating prohibitedNot to be read more
