Done With the Turkey? Good. Guess What It’s Time For?

Durnmoose Movie Musings Posted by Michael on Nov 29, 2019

Ah, the “holiday season”… here we are, the day after Thanksgiving, so of course it’s time to turn our thoughts to Christmas. For a lot of people, Christmas means Christmas Specials. You know the ones I mean, A Charlie Brown Christmas, How the Grinch Stole Christmas, etc., but read more

The 1932 'meet cute'

Carole & Co. Posted by carole_and_co on Nov 29, 2019

Too often we view "No Man Of Her Own" through the prism of what was to come for Carole Lombard and Clark Gable, which really isn't fair to either the film or to its leads. In 1932, each had other spouses, and while celebrities' marriages are volatile by nature, no one at the time expected them to wi read more

Supergirl (2015) s05e07 – Tremors

The Stop Button Posted by on Nov 29, 2019

In an incredible turn of events Mitch Pileggi as the big bad—Leviathan—is actually kind of fun. Pileggi’s a millions of years old alien (he was around to see the dinosaurs get it) who for some reason has hung out on Earth and run a secret society. It’s not clear why. It’s also not clear why read more

Day 29 of Noirvember: Favorite Things About My Favorites

Shadows and Satin Posted by shadowsandsatin on Nov 29, 2019

Can’t get enough of Kathie. For tonight’s Noirvember post, I thought I’d look at five of my favorite noirs, and share what I love best about them. Here goes… Out of the Past (1947) The character of Kathie Moffett, played to perfection by Jane Greer. I feel like I’ve mentioned this earlier read more

Carry On #24: Carry On Abroad

The Wonderful World of Cinema Posted by Virginie Pronovost on Nov 29, 2019

The 24th entry of the Carry On franchise, Carry On Abroad (Gerald Thomas, 1972), was a special one on many aspects. First, just like the previous entry, Carry On Matron, it features a good number of regulars. And these create a strong feeling of nostalgia. June Whitfield’s presence has such a read more

Encore Podcast: The Miracle of "A Charlie Brown Christmas"

The Man on the Flying Trapeze Posted by David on Nov 29, 2019

"A Charlie Brown Christmas" wasn't intentionally created to be timeless, but because of its simplicity and sincerity, timeless it is. Miraculously, it avoids every cliche associated with children's animation and is a perfect blending of music, words and images that clearly conveys one man's vision a read more

Deep Blue Sea (1999, Renny Harlin)

The Stop Button Posted by Andrew Wickliffe on Nov 28, 2019

Deep Blue Sea is ten years too late. I knew the movie was about genetically modified sharks gone wild but the people are also stranded at the bottom of the ocean in a habitat thing. Deep Blue Sea isn’t just an amped-up Jaws movie with terrible CGI and a lousy cast, it’s a postscript in the great read more

Giving thanks for virtual rail tours back in time

Carole & Co. Posted by carole_and_co on Nov 28, 2019

A very happy Thanksgiving, but to celebrate today, we're going back to a time long before Carole Lombard met Clark Gable......more than a century. The girl then known as Jane Alice Peters wouldn't be at the ocean with her brothers today; the second leg of the season's first winter storm is hitting L read more

Happy Throwback Thanksgiving! – Thanksgiving With Jack

Durnmoose Movie Musings Posted by Michael on Nov 28, 2019

Between this blog and my previous one, Professor Damian’s Public Domain Treasure Chest, I’ve been writing about movies for quite a while now. Because of that, there are a lot of posts that have simply gotten lost to the mists of time. So, I figured I’d use the idea of “Throwb read more

All Rise (2019) s01e08 – Maricela and the Desert

The Stop Button Posted by on Nov 28, 2019

There’s a road trip to Vegas this episode, which feels like a trope. It’s not a particularly engaging Vegas road trip, possibly because Wilson Bethel and J. Alex Brinson don’t have any chemistry together, possibly because the whole thing hinges on Brinson having to talk to a sheriff’s deputy read more

book: Stinker from Space (1988) by Pamela F. Service

Noirish Posted by John Grant on Nov 28, 2019

Yes, it was of course the title that grabbed me. I’ve read and enjoyed some of Service’s work before — although long enough ago that I now can’t remember any details — but when I recently saw this one for sale I simply had to have it. The story’s pretty simple. T read more

Day 28 of Noirvember: Happy Thanksgiving!

Shadows and Satin Posted by shadowsandsatin on Nov 28, 2019

It’s Thanksgiving Day 2019, and while searching for turkey-themed photos, I came across this picture of Marilyn Monroe, who appeared in four films noirs during her career: The Asphalt Jungle (1950), Clash by Night (1950), Don’t Bother to Knock (1952), and Niagara (1953). In honor of the holida read more

Book Review: Mister Roger's Neighborhood - A Visual History

Silver Scenes - A Blog for Classic Film Lovers Posted by The Metzinger Sisters on Nov 28, 2019

For over thirty years, Fred Rogers fostered the imaginations of little tykes across America through his PBS children's program Mister Rogers' Neighborhood. He helped teach these youngsters lessons about growing, loving, and being happy just for being the unique individuals that they are. He also too read more

THE LEMON DROP KID (1951)

Stardust and Shadows Posted by Terry on Nov 28, 2019

I remember the usual films, THE GRINCH THAT STOLE CHRISTMAS with Boris Karloff; CHARLIE BROWN’S CHRISTMAS with the sad tree that tips over when an ornament is put on it.   The skating sequences from THE BISHOPS’S WIFE with David Niven, Cary Grant and Loretta Young are also part of holiday memories. read more

book: Easter Island (2003) by Jennifer Vanderbes

Noirish Posted by John Grant on Nov 27, 2019

A beautifully written and genuinely fascinating novel that loosely interweaves two stories, set in different time periods, of women scientists coming to Easter Island, one of the most remote spots on the planet, and there managing to overcome the sexist prejudices of their day and establish themsel read more
