Stardust and Shadows Posted by Terry on Jan 25, 2020

I am sure we all read some of the  biographies of the stars, hoping to get some insight or  dirt.  Loads of these works are out there; from the ‘unauthorised’ label with many books being written by the studio press people or the newspaper columnist of the time.  These people tend to read more

John Wick (2014, Chad Stahelski)

The Stop Button Posted by on Jan 25, 2020

John Wick is all right. It feels like if it’d been made in the nineties, it’d have been revolutionary. Instead, it uses all the revolutionary and not revolutionary film techniques since the nineties to make the ultimate in mainstream heavy metal neo-pulp, with a twist of seventies exploitation for read more

Ford v Ferrari

The Best Picture Project Posted by Alyson on Jan 24, 2020

As I write this, my dad is at Daytona for their 24 hour race. He is an avid race fan and thanks go him I grew up around racing and still enjoy the sport and spectacle today. Living in Indianapolis, the racing capital of the world, I find comfort and excitement in the sight and sound of a race car. O read more

Ghidorah Makes His Film Debut in the First Smackdown!

Classic Film & TV Cafe Posted by Rick29 on Jan 24, 2020

Ghidorah (center) battling Mothra and Godzilla. When I first saw Ghidorah, the Three-Headed Monster at the Winston Theatre in 1965, it was a different movie. The title monster's name was Ghidrah (no "o"), the dialogue was dubbed, and the movie was viewed through the eyes of a squirming youngster. F read more

'Dressing' in 16mm

Carole & Co. Posted by carole_and_co on Jan 24, 2020

Stunning still of Carole Lombard, isn't it? Well, yes and no. That's her, all right, but it's not a publicity still, but a frame grab from a 16mm print of her 1934 Paramount musical comedy (a reworking of "The Admirable Crichton")...So, for that matter, are all the images you'll see in this entry, i read more

Slacker (1991): Richard Linklater’s Ultimate Independent Film

4 Star Films Posted by 4 Star Film Fan on Jan 24, 2020

Kudos must be extended to Richard Linklater for actually being proactive and going out to shoot the movie countless of us have doubtlessly tossed around in our mind’s eye. Taking our town — the places we know intimately — and building a portmanteau out of it with a group of friends read more

Carry On #30: Carry On Emmannuelle

The Wonderful World of Cinema Posted by Virginie Pronovost on Jan 24, 2020

Believe it or not, this is the 30th entry of this blog series meaning that it’s the before-last one (well, not considering the eventual recap)! It feels quite weird that this fun blogging task is about to come to an end. More importantly, the film I am reviewing today, Carry On Emmannuelle (G read more

Bad Dreams (1988, Andrew Fleming)

The Stop Button Posted by on Jan 24, 2020

At the end of Bad Dreams, as GNR’s Sweet Child of Mine starts up over the end credits… I thought, at least director (and co-writer) Fleming has good taste in music. Turns out he didn’t want the song and a studio exec with a better ear put it in the film. Bummer. It would’ve been nice to be able read more

Destroy All Monsters (1968)

Flickers in Time Posted by Beatrice on Jan 23, 2020

Destroy All Monsters (Kaiju soshingeki) Directed by Ishiro Honda Written by Ishiro Honda and Takashi Kimur Japan/1968 IMDb link First viewing/Criterion Channe As a break from more serious fare, I took a chance on this utterly lame monster movie so you don’t have to.  Unless you want to, of cou read more

The Punisher (2004) #49, Widowmaker, Part 7 (of 7)

The Stop Button Posted by on Jan 23, 2020

Bill Reinhold’s back on inks—solo—this issue. It doesn’t have to be Tom Palmer, it could be someone else, but it needs to be someone else because Medina and Reinhold completely botch the finish. Ennis is going for something—something confused, because there have been too many issues in the read more

Silents are Golden: The Iconic Careers of Lillian and Dorothy Gish

Classic Movie Hub Blog Posted by Lea Stans on Jan 23, 2020

Silents are Golden: The Iconic Careers of Lillian and Dorothy Gish “I remember one day in the early summer going through the gloomy old hall of the Biograph Studio when suddenly all gloom seemed to disappear. This change in atmosphere was caused by the presence of two young girls sitting side by read more

Watching 1939: Charlie Chan in Reno (1939)

Comet Over Hollywood Posted by on Jan 23, 2020

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

Some 'Supernatural' things

Carole & Co. Posted by carole_and_co on Jan 23, 2020

"Supernatural" is an anomaly in Carole Lombard's cinematic canon. Made in early 1933 when neither Paramount nor Lombard herself had yet defined herself on screen (she's shown above in a publicity still with co-star Randolph Scott), it was a drama with elements of horror and the occult, neither of th read more

John Barry - Composer

Silver Scenes - A Blog for Classic Film Lovers Posted by The Metzinger Sisters on Jan 23, 2020

John Barry ( November 3, 1933 - January 30, 2011 ) John Barry is undoubtedly one of the most iconic and talented composers in cinema's history. He is most famous for his themes to the James Bond movies and his scores to Out of Africa and Dances with Wolves but his body of work extends well beyond t read more

Legends of Tomorrow (2016) s05e02 – Meet the Legends

The Stop Button Posted by on Jan 23, 2020

Good “Legends” is both bad and obvious, and obvious. When the show hits the right notes, it keeps ringing the bell through the end of the episode. Once an episode of “Legends” clicks, it stays in that higher gear. This first post-Crisis episode means there can be all sorts of new changes in read more

All Rise (2019) s01e13 – What the Bailiff Saw

The Stop Button Posted by on Jan 23, 2020

So it looks like Peter MacNicol is going to be a regular guest star, which is fine. He exudes a lovable, not too problematic old white guy energy as Simone Missick’s new judge pal. He shows up for a single scene, to talk to her about the case she’s got going, then disappears again. I didn’t pay read more

Garden of Evil (1954): Starring Gary Cooper and Richard Widmark

4 Star Films Posted by 4 Star Film Fan on Jan 22, 2020

It does feel like one of the grand old westerns we left behind in more recent years. It’s a big picture in the horizontal majesty of widescreen, Glorious Technicolor, backed by the only score Bernard Hermann would ever arrange for the West. There’s little doubt we are in for a spectacle read more

Carry On #29: That’s Carry On!

The Wonderful World of Cinema Posted by Virginie Pronovost on Jan 22, 2020

Today’s Carry On review is gonna be fairly short as the 29th entry of the series has the particularity of being a re-cap of what the team had produced since 1958 when Carry On Sergeant introduced the series. That’s Carry On!, as it is called, was released in 1977 in a time where the pro read more
