Hometowns to Hollywood Posted by Annette Bochenek on Jul 8, 2022

Any actor portraying Elvis Presley has big shoes to fill. This task is certainly not unique to portrayals of Presley–think Judy Garland, Marilyn Monroe, Lucille Ball, and so many more as of late–but is an immense undertaking at any rate. While Baz Luhrmann’s Elvis (2022) has its cr read more

Pigs and Battleships (1961)

4 Star Films Posted by 4 Star Film Fan on Jul 6, 2022

If you want to make some sense of the rise of Shohei Imamura, it’s convenient enough to fit him into the context of two of Japan’s foremost filmmakers. During his time as a university student at the prestigious Waseda University, he saw a screening of Akira Kurosawa’s Rashomon, wh read more

OBI-WAN KENOBI

The Hitless Wonder Movie Blog Posted by Dan Day, Jr. on Jul 6, 2022

 Like all original Star Wars fans, I had my own ideas about what Obi-Wan Kenobi was doing during his hiatus on Tatooine. I certainly didn't think he was sitting on his behind for twenty years. In my mind, he was staying alert, keeping ready, and maintaining contacts with the burgeoning Reb read more

THE BRAIN FROM PLANET AROUS On Blu-ray From The Film Detective

The Hitless Wonder Movie Blog Posted by Dan Day, Jr. on Jul 3, 2022

 The 1957 science-fiction film THE BRAIN FROM PLANET AROUS is one of my guilty pleasures. It's also one of the most notable (some would say notorious) examples of 1950s low-budget big-screen sci-fi. The Film Detective has now released it on Blu-ray, with all sorts of trimmings. Somewhere i read more

Film Noir Review: Il bidone (1955)

Classic Movie Hub Blog Posted by Danilo Castro on Jun 30, 2022

“We’ve gotta figure out something better. We can’t go on like this.” Film noir was an American phenomenon during the 1940s and 50s. It was built on the foundation of stateside pulp writers, and thrived on the sex appeal and allure of stateside actors. Still, the style prov read more

Tiger Bay (1959)

4 Star Films Posted by 4 Star Film Fan on Jun 30, 2022

Horst Bucholtz has always held a soft spot in my heart. There are several very simple reasons.

Then, years la read more
