Space Force (2020)

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

“Space Force” | Season one, 10 episodes | Netflix, 2020 While comedic sitcoms usually take a while to find their footing on the way to a successful vehicle, the creators of “Space Force” seem to be striding the fence here in their pursuit of a balance between comedy and darker social read more

The Directors’ Chair: Foreign Correspondent FOREIGN CORRESPONDENT (1940) What a nifty little spitfire of a movie Foreign Correspondent is. Joel McCrea stands in for America in this ‘thirty-seconds-before-WWII-begins’ thriller. A Dutch ambassador (poignantly played by Albert Basserma read more

Rewind: Good Books About the Black Cinematic Experience

Classic Movies Posted by KC on Jun 19, 2020

A dapper group at a 1900 Juneteenth celebration in Texas (Source) I thought it would be fun to celebrate Emancipation Day/Juneteenth by remembering some of the books about the black cinematic experience that I have reviewed. I'm also going to share a few other titles that I have enjoyed over the ye read more

Frasier (1993) s02e07 – The Candidate

The Stop Button Posted by on Jun 19, 2020

I missed the writing credit on this episode and I’m glad I did. Seeing it’s Chuck Ranberg and Anne Flett-Giordano is icing. Candidate’s the team’s first script this season (they did a bunch last season) and it’s great. It’s also a bit risqué for a network sitcom as far as politics goes, read more

From the Archives: Gun for a Coward ( 1956 )

Silver Scenes - A Blog for Classic Film Lovers Posted by The Metzinger Sisters on Jun 19, 2020

Janice Rule is clinging to her newly-found boyfriend Jeffrey Hunter in this publicity photo for "Gun for a Coward" ( 1956 ), an entertaining western from Universal Pictures.

Theresa Harris’ Hollywood On June 19, 2020June 19, 2020 By CarolIn Uncategorized Ryan Murphy’s new Netflix show, Hollywood, is not only a guilty pleasure for classic film afficionados, but it is also a reminder of how far Hollywood has come and read more

Hollywood: Returning to production...ever so slowly

Carole & Co. Posted by carole_and_co on Jun 19, 2020

Even if Carole Lombard had lived to be a centenarian, she never would have had to professionally mimic her nurse Anne Lee in wearing a mask on the set in real life. Yes, there was a flu pandemic in 1918-1919, but Jane Alice Peters wouldn't make her first appearance before movie cameras until early 1 read more

Devs (2020) s01e05

The Stop Button Posted by on Jun 19, 2020

So last episode ended on two pretty significant cliffhangers for intrepid hero Sonoya Mizuno and her loyal sidekick Jin Ha. This episode opens with a “stylish” composite shot where involuntarily psychiatrically held Mizuno remembers life in her apartment with ex Ha as well as recently deceased boyf read more

The Wrong Missy (2020, Tyler Spindel)

The Stop Button Posted by Andrew Wickliffe on Jun 19, 2020

The Wrong Missy | Directed by Tyler Spindel | Netflix, 2020 Alright, I’ll come clean early and confess a weakness for rom coms. Especially after a few beers, and featuring lively young talents. When I saw the commercial for this one evening while pursing Netflix series, the presence of Lauren Lapku read more

Teknophage (1995) #1-6

The Stop Button Posted by on Jun 18, 2020

Let’s see how long it takes me to describe Teknophage. Our reality is just one of an infinite (I think) number of realities, a multiverse woven together through the will of one single creature—the Teknophage, or Mister Henry Phage. He’s a giant dinosaur. On his planet, through mutation, he became read more

Silents are Golden: A Closer Look At – Safety Last! (1923)

Classic Movie Hub Blog Posted by Lea Stans on Jun 18, 2020

Silents are Golden: A Closer Look At – Safety Last! (1923) Few images from cinema are more iconic than the 1920s, black-and-white photo of a young man in round glasses dangling from a clock. Even if you’ve never seen a silent film, it’s guaranteed that you’ve seen this famous still at some read more

Watching 1939: You Can’t Cheat an Honest Man (1939)

Comet Over Hollywood Posted by on Jun 18, 2020

In 2011, I announced I was trying to see every film released in 1939. This new series chronicles films released in 1939 as I watch them. As we start out this blog feature, this section may become more concrete as I search for a common thread that runs throughout each film of the year. Right now, th read more

The Band Wagon (1953) with Fred & Cyd

4 Star Films Posted by 4 Star Film Fan on Jun 18, 2020

Some may recall the opening titles of Top Hat (1935). They play over a man’s hat only for the head under it to move as the names subside, and we find Fred Astaire under its brim in his coat and tails. Now, well nigh 20 years later, the same imagery is being called upon. There’s an aucti read more

Devs (2020) s01e04

The Stop Button Posted by on Jun 18, 2020

I believe the technical term for what writer, director, and show creator Alex Garland does with the “cold open.” Artsy-fartsy. I mean, it’s not bad or anything, it’s just blandly stylized. Though in a somewhat different way than usual. It doesn’t have that “compare it to Kubrick” desperation read more

TCM is Going Film Noir Nutty!

Shadows and Satin Posted by shadowsandsatin on Jun 18, 2020

TCM is going film noir nutty, y’all!! If you like film noir (and, really, would you be reading these words if you didn’t?), you’ll want to tune into TCM on Friday, June 19th – the lineup is practically bursting at the seams with shadowy goodness. Or badness, as the case may be. You can literally read more

Doctor Who (2005) s02e02 – Tooth and Claw

The Stop Button Posted by on Jun 18, 2020

Tooth and Claw opens in nineteenth century Scotland, where a bunch of royals get attacked by a group of monks who know wire fu. Is it good wire fu? No. But it’s odd enough to get one interested and then it’s only a few minutes before David Tennant and Billie Piper find themselves in the same castle read more

Lombard, a stylish 'Lady' (part-time or by choice!)

Carole & Co. Posted by carole_and_co on Jun 18, 2020

In alternate universes, do Carole Lombard films have different titles? They very well may (and let's also hope that in many of them, Lombard lived the lengthy, substantial life she deserved). We're aware of several times disposed or dissuaded at the last minute -- "The Best People" became "Fast And read more

On Blu-ray: A Magnificent Restoration of the Two-Strip Horror Flick The Mystery of the Wax Museum (1933)

Classic Movies Posted by KC on Jun 17, 2020

My introduction to the pre-code horror flick Mystery of the Wax Museum (1933) came from the book that provided most of my early film education, 500 Great Films, by Daniel and Susan Cohen. The brief passage dedicated to the movie revealed that it was lost for twenty-five years and over that time,  read more
