Virtual Virago Posted by Jennifer Garlen on Jan 26, 2021

2020 - a year of masks, not movies.The last movie I saw in a theater was Onward back in March of 2020.

The Hitless Wonder Movie Blog Posted by Dan Day, Jr. on Jan 25, 2021

 I'm currently reading Alan K. Rode's mammoth biography of film director Michael Curtiz. It's a fascinating book, and a long-overdue examination of a filmmaker that never seems to get the attention he deserves. One of the revelatory parts of the biography is the coverage of Curtiz's movie read more

4 Star Films Posted by 4 Star Film Fan on Jan 25, 2021

The entire premise is set around National Bank in New York City during The Depression. If it’s not enough explanation already, at least we have some hint of where we might be headed.

Johnny Belinda (1948) and Evoking Silent Cinema

4 Star Films Posted by 4 Star Film Fan on Jan 21, 2021

I must admit to committing an unforgivable fallacy. Maybe I’m the only perpetrator, but there might be others too.
