Podcasts for Classic Film Fans: June Round-up

Classic Movies Posted by KC on Jun 24, 2020

While I am in the habit of celebrating black excellence in my podcast round-ups, we are living in a difficult, but remarkable moment, one which I hope leads to positive change and justice, and in response I wanted to send a little more love out there this month by focusing entirely on black hosts an read more

Frasier (1993) s02e10 – Burying a Grudge

The Stop Button Posted by Andrew Wickliffe on Jun 24, 2020

David Lloyd wrote a John Mahoney-centric episode last season so he seems the right fit for this episode, which is about Mahoney having to bury the hatchet with his ex-partner and best friend, Lincoln Kilpatrick, as both men have long retired and experiencing health issues. David Lloyd is father of read more

It’s Always Fair Weather (1955): A Musical For The TV Age

4 Star Films Posted by 4 Star Film Fan on Jun 23, 2020

Conventional wisdom tells us you don’t make a musical quite like this. It’s a bit of a nostalgia piece and already it seems like American was ready to move on with life after WWIII. It’s relatively straightforward to assume that It’s Always Fair Weather (1955) was a harbinge read more

Frasier (1993) s02e09 – Adventures in Paradise (2)

The Stop Button Posted by Andrew Wickliffe on Jun 23, 2020

I wonder how this episode would play in one sitting. Even just marathoning it (as opposed to cutting out the recap at the beginning of this second part, which Kelsey Grammer performs quite well). Because writers Ken Levine and David Isaacs still have an odd structure. They had an odd structure last read more

Hitman: A Rage in Arkham (1993-96)

The Stop Button Posted by Andrew Wickliffe on Jun 23, 2020

A Rage in Arkham is the first Hitman collection, but it’s not all the first Hitman stories. There’s his first appearance, during the Bloodlines crossover—which I can’t forget to address, in a Garth Ennis and John McCrea Demon annual, then a Contagion tie-in with Hitman and Batman, then the first read more

Becker (1998) s01e22 – Regarding Reggie

The Stop Button Posted by Andrew Wickliffe on Jun 23, 2020

I’ve been dreading the “Becker” season finale. I was initially enthusiastic about this rewatch but the first season’s been a slog. I’m not sure why exactly I was dreading this episode—other than the Regarding Reggie title being a little ominous—but it was the appropriate expectation. If read more

REMAKE AVENUE: Five Star Final, 1931 and Two Against the World, 1936

Caftan Woman Posted by on Jun 22, 2020

Mythologized, demonized, revered, and lampooned, the gentlemen of the press make for good copy. From real-life crusader Nellie Bly who became as famous as her exposes to the fictional Charles Foster Kane who thought it would be fun to run a newspaper, audiences are as fascinated with the purveyors o read more

Burt Lancaster and Ossie Davis Take on The Scalphunters

Classic Film & TV Cafe Posted by Rick29 on Jun 22, 2020

Burt Lanaster as Joe Bass. When easygoing trapper Joe Bass (Burt Lancaster) takes a shortcut through Kiowa land, he is confronted by a party of Indians led by Two Crows. The Kiowa leader wants to trade a black slave for Bass's pelts. The trapper isn't interested in the deal--but he's really doesn't read more

Marilyn: Behind the Icon – The Asphalt Jungle,Monroe’s Break-Out Performance In April 1955, Marilyn Monroe appeared on Edward R Murrow’s television series Person to Person featuring celebrity interviews. From his armchair in a studio, Murrow conversed with Monroe, who appeared read more

Musical Monday: Hitting a New High (1937)

Comet Over Hollywood Posted by on Jun 22, 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: Hitting a New High (1937) read more

Devs (2020) s01e08

The Stop Button Posted by Andrew Wickliffe on Jun 22, 2020

With “Devs,” writer, director, and creator Alex Garland manages to be at least twenty-one years late to be original with what he’s going for. Though he’s also apparently in the zeitgeist because the big twist is also another show this year. Does he bring anything new to the table? Not really? read more

Doctor Who (2005) s02e03 – School Reunion

The Stop Button Posted by Andrew Wickliffe on Jun 22, 2020

They did a CGI werewolf episode, so why not a CGI vampire episode—except the vampires are aliens who can’t really turn into humans except Anthony Head (get it, “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” non-vampire, playing a vampire, get it—also, he plays the headmaster of a school; headmaster; get it). read more

EERIE TALES (UNHEIMLICHE GESCHICHTEN)

Devs (2020) s01e07

The Stop Button Posted by Andrew Wickliffe on Jun 21, 2020

Lots of “surprises” this episode as far as how the show’s going to go into its final episode. Like three deaths surprises, as writer, director, and creator Alex Garland starts paring down the cast to something more manageable. The funniest thing about the death scenes is how anticlimactic they read more

Devs (2020) s01e06

The Stop Button Posted by Andrew Wickliffe on Jun 20, 2020

This episode introduces “dumb Jamie,” which is writer, director, and show creator Alex Garland’s way of making Sonoya Mizuno clearly smarter than Jin Ha. It just requires Ha be really dense all of a sudden. Even though he just got done doing the superhero move of breaking Mizuno out of a mental read more

STREET PEOPLE

The Hitless Wonder Movie Blog Posted by Dan Day, Jr. on Jun 20, 2020

STREET PEOPLE isn't a film detailing the problems of the homeless....it's a Italian production from 1976 dealing with the Sicilian mob and stolen drugs. What makes it notable are its two English-speaking stars--Roger Moore and Stacy Keach. A Sicilian-born mob boss, now based in San Francisco, has a read more

Frasier (1993) s02e08 – Adventures in Paradise (1)

The Stop Button Posted by Andrew Wickliffe on Jun 20, 2020

Remember when we didn’t see TV show episodes all the time? What were they called—electronic programming guides (thanks, Google). So watching Adventures in Paradise: Part 1 in fall 1994, you weren’t wondering why it was called part one. The episode’s got a somewhat strange pacing as writers Ken read more

Silver Scenes - A Blog for Classic Film Lovers Posted by The Metzinger Sisters on Jun 20, 2020

"Dive! Dive!" Film producer/director Irwin Allen let audiences dive deep into the waters of adventure with Voyage of the Bottom of the Sea, his second of three feature films that he made at 20th Century Fox studios in the early 1960s.
