Thistles and Thorns (2018, Kalie Acheson)

The Stop Button Posted by Andrew Wickliffe on May 15, 2019

Thistles and Thorns opens with a girl (Madison Vance) going into a forest preserve after school. Vance is practically beaming as she does, which doesn’t initially make sense—when she’s walking on the street—but does once she’s in the forest, looking around at all the nature. She goes to a read more

Good Feels on Wheels

The Best Picture Project Posted by Alyson on May 14, 2019

Last week, I went to the Indy Film Fest, here in Indianapolis, to see Good Feels on Wheels, a film written and directed by Ronald Short. I’ve written before about Ronald and his filmmaking passion that he’s been pursuing since his teens. While he’s made numerous shorts and a web series, Good Feels read more

On Blu-ray: Doris Day and Rod Taylor in The Glass Bottom Boat (1966)

Classic Movies Posted by KC on May 14, 2019

I wrote this review days before the legendary Doris Day passed on. It is in a way a tribute to her charm and talent, because every word I've ever written about her has been a tribute. She was the living embodiment of sunshine and so phenomenally talented. Produced in the last decade of Doris Day read more

Remembering Doris Day (1922 – 2019)

Classic Movie Man Posted by Stephen Reginald on May 14, 2019

Remembering Doris Day (1922 – 2019) When I was a kid, I remember my dad playing Doris Day records on our stereo system (remember those?). Not only was Day one of my dad’s favorite vocalists, but she was his favorite movie star. I can still remember the album covers of Day’s al read more

Doris Day And Tim Conway

The Hitless Wonder Movie Blog Posted by Dan Day, Jr. on May 14, 2019

I don't write a lot of tribute blog posts when a notable performer passes away, simply because celebrity deaths seem to happen all the time. If I was in the habit of regularly writing tribute posts, I'd have to do it constantly, and I don't want this blog to be nothing more than an obituary. But th read more

Miss Grant Goes to the Door (1940, Brian Desmond Hurst)

The Stop Button Posted by Andrew Wickliffe on May 13, 2019

Miss Grant Goes to the Door is a rather well-executed propaganda short. There’s an air raid and two British sisters prepare to go to the shelter. Mary Clare is the noncommittal one, who wants to go back to bed, who needs to get her sewing before she can go to the basement. She even turns on the lig read more

Review: Leave Her to Heaven (1945)

4 Star Films Posted by 4 Star Film Fan on May 13, 2019

Film Noir is usually synonymous with black and white. Of course, as with everything, especially something as notoriously difficult to categorize as film noir, there are notable exceptions. Obvious outliers are Niagara (1953), Bad Day at Black Rock (1955), House of Bamboo (1955), and this picture fr read more

Comet Over Hollywood Posted by on May 13, 2019

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 500.

Remembering Doris Day

Carole & Co. Posted by carole_and_co on May 13, 2019

I've never read anything saying Doris Day was a Carole Lombard fan in her youth, but it wouldn't surprise me if she had been. They shared many qualities: An innate sunniness, a brilliant comedic sensibility, appeal to both genders, love for animals.Day, who died this morning at 97 of pneumonia, was read more

Doris Day and the Reaction Shot

Cary Grant Won't Eat You Posted by Judy on May 13, 2019

Today a man I know well surprised me, and I could tell I had one of those hilariously odd expressions on my face in response. When I heard a couple hours later that Doris Day had died, it seemed to me that I’d inadvertently paid tribute to that marvelous, strong, very funny woman. There will never read more

Um Rosto de Mulher (1941) / A Woman's Face (1941) Durante a Era de Ouro dos estúdios, sempre que um artista tinha liberdade para interpretar um personagem diferente do que estava acostumado – em geral depois de muita insistência e luta – o resultado era quase sempre maravilhoso. read more


The Hitless Wonder Movie Blog Posted by Dan Day, Jr. on May 12, 2019

SCREAM AND SCREAM AGAIN is famous--or infamous--for featuring three of the greatest stars in fantastic films history. Vincent Price, Christopher Lee, and Peter Cushing all get major billing, despite the fact that they all play supporting roles (Cushing is in only one scene). The 1969 film has been r read more
