Silver Screen Standards: The Court Jester (1955)

Classic Movie Hub Blog Posted by Jennifer Garlen on Jan 14, 2020

Silver Screen Standards: The Court Jester (1955) I turn to colorful, upbeat musicals whenever I feel sick or depressed, especially in the winter, when I most need a bright escape from dark, dreary days stuck indoors.

Stardust and Shadows Posted by Terry on Jan 14, 2020

Sixties film making has a particular niche and creators pressed  new subject matter and techniques.   The rise of the ‘biker film,’ thought to be low budget drive in fare for the  teenagers more interested in making sure  the ‘wild oats’ were well stowed away. Many of these read more

Blood on the Moon (1948): A Robert Mitchum Horse Noir

4 Star Films Posted by 4 Star Film Fan on Jan 13, 2020

This is admittedly nitpicky, but the title cards of Blood on the Moon are a bit jarring as the white-lettered names all but disappear into the sliver of light stretching across the otherwise black canvas of the screen. Thus, I missed out on about a fourth of the names in the cast. Opening credits a read more

Grantchester (2014) s05e01

The Stop Button Posted by on Jan 13, 2020

It’s nice to have “Grantchester” back, especially since Robson Green doesn’t appear to have a complete jackass arc for this season. Though it’s arguably too soon to tell and he does bring in his mother-in-law (Paula Wilcox, I think) without consulting wife Kacey Ainsworth to help out around read more

Comet Over Hollywood Posted by on Jan 13, 2020

To celebrate and share this musical love, here is my weekly feature about musicals. This week’s musical: Doctor Dolittle (1967) – read more

The Punisher (2004) #43, Widowmaker, Part 1 (of 7)

The Stop Button Posted by on Jan 13, 2020

There’s barely any Frank in this issue. He opens it—gets the first two pages, then writer Garth Ennis shifts the action entirely to the villains. Frank’s been up against the mob, he’s been up against the Russians, he’s been up against big business, but now he’s up against a group of women read more

Carole & Co. Posted by carole_and_co on Jan 12, 2020

It's no secret that Carole Lombard's "My Man Godfrey" is among the greatest romantic comedies in movie history. Now to my pleasure, a noted film site has validated its status.At its "Romance Central" site, has selected the 1936 screwball pic, which co-stars Lombard's ex William Po read more

Roxanne (1987, Fred Schepisi)

The Stop Button Posted by on Jan 12, 2020

Roxanne is a charming romantic comedy. Wait, I think it might need an additional qualifier—it’s a charming romantic situational comedy. I’m not one to sit around and debate stakes with romantic comedies, but even for a romantic comedy… Roxanne’s got some low stakes. Maybe because of how closely read more

Yesterday (2019): How I Longed for a Bit More

4 Star Films Posted by 4 Star Film Fan on Jan 11, 2020

The majority of movies have to fight to earn our allegiance. However, Yesterday really does have a foolproof premise because, from the outset, it can bank on a viewership who will already have memories crowded with the Beatles and as the Fab Four play a key role in the story, you already have a huge read more

Have you ever felt a weird sensation on your leg and reached down to bat it away? Or thought you saw something on the floor and jerked your leg thinking it was a spider – or worse? Me too. A lot. As much as I am fascinated by movies with oversized bugs, I also am intrigued by the opposite – read more

Watchmen (2019) s01e09 – See How They Fly

The Stop Button Posted by on Jan 11, 2020

I’ve been trying to gin up enthusiasm to write about this “Watchmen” finale all day. Though, if I think hard enough, I’m sure I’ll be able to come up with a compliment. Something like… thanks to “Watchmen: The Series,” Robert Wisdom’s most… unappreciative recent casting is no longer read more

Lots of Lombard for a (potentially) little price

Carole & Co. Posted by carole_and_co on Jan 11, 2020

It's possible that by the end of next week, someone could acquire seven Carole Lombard movies on DVD...and pay less than a dollar for each film. (Before shipping and handling, of course).OK, the DVDs in question date from 2005 and 2006, respectively -- but they're apparently in good shape. Several o read more
