SATURNALIA

The Hitless Wonder Movie Blog Posted by Dan Day, Jr. on Jun 5, 2022

 SATURNALIA is writer-producer-director-star Joshua Kennedy's wildest, most off-beat film yet....and that's saying something. Because it's so wild and off-beat, and because it touches upon so many genres, it's almost impossible to describe.

Film Noir Review: Odds Against Tomorrow (1959)

Classic Movie Hub Blog Posted by Danilo Castro on Jun 1, 2022

“Like you said, it’s just one role of the dice, doesn’t matter what color they are.” Robert Wise is a fascinating case study. In a medium built on radical storytellers and auteurs, Wise is the epitome of a craftsman; a filmmaker without a discernible style. Were it not for read more

NO TIME FOR COMEDY

The Hitless Wonder Movie Blog Posted by Dan Day, Jr. on May 31, 2022

 This is a Jimmy Stewart film that I had never seen. The title of this film, which was produced by Warner Bros. in 1940, is somewhat ironic, because in my opinion there's not a lot of comedy in it. NO TIME FOR COMEDY is a film adaptation of a successful Broadway play that starred Laurence read more
