On Blu-ray: Gregory Peck and Eva Marie Saint in The Stalking Moon (1969)

Classic Movies Posted by KC on Jul 1, 2020

I went into the western thriller The Stalking Moon (1969) knowing nothing about it and came out the other side feeling unsettled. It is of its time in the deep certainty it shows in its morals, which can make it a difficult watch. The film recently made its Blu-ray debut on Warner Archive. The Stal read more

The Best Picture Project Posted by Alyson on Jul 1, 2020

My children asking for snacks….again. Hello summer! In between keeping my kids busy, fetching them popsicles and avoiding a certain plague I’ve found a little time to watch some new movies: I’m a little behind on my quest to watch 52 films directed by women this year, but plan to c read more

Lombard on lists, and a 'nurse's' masked reminder

Carole & Co. Posted by carole_and_co on Jul 1, 2020

Actress Maria Tura (Carole Lombard) is having an affair with Polish pilot Stanislav Sobinski (Robert Stack, top), much to the chagrin of her egotistical actor husband Joseph Tura (Jack Benny, bottom) in "To Be Or Not To Be," Ernst Lubitsch's 1942 dark comedy classic and the last film Lombard would m read more

The Confession Killer: Exploring the Complicated Case of Henry Lee Lucas

The Wonderful World of Cinema Posted by Virginie Pronovost on Jul 1, 2020

Aside from posting an announcement for the 5th Wonderful Ingrid Bergman Blogathon (*wink wink!*), I haven’t written a lot of my blog since I came back to Montreal. For this new blog article, I wanted to share with you one of the series I’ve discovered recently (I’m more in a serie read more

Upload (2020) s01e03 – The Funeral

The Stop Button Posted by Andrew Wickliffe on Jul 1, 2020

This episode opens with a Rupert “Tilford” (cough, cough, Murdoch)—played by Creed from “The Office”—paying to get his Upload mind put into a clone body. And he dies. More than any episode so far, this episode of “Upload” felt a little like they were trying for Robocop humor. It’s read more

Doctor Who (2005) s02e11 – Fear Her

The Stop Button Posted by Andrew Wickliffe on Jul 1, 2020

For an Earth episode, especially one with a strangely disjointed narrative with dueling MacGuffins, Fear Her is okay. There’s not a very high bar for the Earth episodes so getting to see David Tennant and Billie Piper doing an ad for the 2012 Olympics in London. They show up—six years into Piper’s read more

Robinson, Joan Bennett, and Dan Duryea Scarlet Street (1945) is a film noir directed by Fritz Lang, produced by Walter Wanger, cinematography by Milton Krasner, and starring Edward G. Robinson, Joan Bennett, and Dan Duryea. With the critical and bo read more

Classic Films in Focus: MARTY (1955)

Virtual Virago Posted by Jennifer Garlen on Jun 30, 2020

Somehow I've managed to miss seeing Marty (1955) in my classic movie viewing up until this month, when I happened to find it hidden in the depths of the Prime streaming catalog on Amazon. I'm glad I finally discovered it, though, because this modest romantic drama is as sweet and compelling a pictur read more

Frasier (1993) s02e13 – Retirement is Murder

The Stop Button Posted by Andrew Wickliffe on Jun 30, 2020

New writing team (Elias Davis and David Pollock)—albeit one working together since the 1960s—and a new director (Alan Myerson) but it’s a close to quintessential “Frasier.” Though more in the “good jackass Kelsey Grammer” column than the “good exemplar episode” one, even though it’s read more

The Ladies Man (1961): Herbert H. Heebert

4 Star Films Posted by 4 Star Film Fan on Jun 30, 2020

The French (and Europe in general) have unparalleled esteem for Jerry Lewis.  It no doubt allows them to put him in conversations with their own beloved Jacques Tati as the true heirs to the Chaplins and the Keatons of comedy. It’s no major revelation most Americans, flagged from the general read more

Doctor Who (2005) s02e10 – Love & Monsters

The Stop Button Posted by Andrew Wickliffe on Jun 30, 2020

It’s a not bad concept episode (written by Russell T. Davies, which seems weird but whatever) about a regular bloke (Marc Warren) who records a video diary on his digital camcorder to upload at 160×120 to his FTP server to share his story about the Doctor. I mean, it’s a YouTube doc before read more

Looking like the real deal, and RIP Carl Reiner

Carole & Co. Posted by carole_and_co on Jun 30, 2020

While Carole Lombard was generally a generous signer of autographs (I'm certain there were times that was the last thing on her mind), her sadly brief lifetime has made her signature sought-after for decades...and many unscrupulous types have played on that demand; fakes abound. We pointed out one i read more

Upload (2020) s01e02 – Five Stars

The Stop Button Posted by Andrew Wickliffe on Jun 30, 2020

The best part about “Upload” this episode is Cigarette Smoking Man William B. Davis as one of the “Choak” brothers, who has died and is now living his reward after ruining American society for decades. Because Davis is good. No qualifications, no asterisks, he’s just good. Everything else read more

The Ray Harryhausen Centennial

The Hitless Wonder Movie Blog Posted by Dan Day, Jr. on Jun 29, 2020

On this day 100 years ago, Ray Harryhausen was born. Such an occasion deserves a tribute...but being the ordinary guy that I am, how can I properly articulate his greatness and legacy?? Ray Harryahusen was more than just an exemplary special effects artist. He was a creator, a man who inaugurated a read more

Doctor Who (2005) s02e09 – The Satan Pit

The Stop Button Posted by Andrew Wickliffe on Jun 29, 2020

So, the title sort of gives away the big reveal. The Satan Pit refers to the giant hole in the middle of the planet, where they’ve already dug twelve miles down and sent David Tennant and Claire Rushbrook to investigate. She wants to go in the existing pit, as opposed to the tunnel they dug. Tennan read more

Musical Monday: Take Me Out to the Ball Game (1949)

Comet Over Hollywood Posted by on Jun 29, 2020

It’s no secret that the Hollywood Comet loves musicals. In 2010, I revealed I had seen 400 movie musicals over the course of eight years. Now that number is over 600. To celebrate and share this musical love, here is my weekly feature about musicals. This week’s musical: Take Me Out to the Ball read more

Caftan Woman Posted by on Jun 29, 2020

Leo Rosten's 1961 novel Captain Newman, M.D. remained on the New York Times Best Seller List for 24 straight weeks.

Doris Day in Hitchcock and Hitchcock-Lite

Classic Film & TV Cafe Posted by Rick29 on Jun 29, 2020

In regard to his two versions of The Man Who Knew Too Much (1934 and 1956), Alfred Hitchcock famously quipped: "Let's just say that the first version was the work of a talented amateur and the second was made by a professional." These days, it's fashionable to prefer the earlier film, though I read more
