Doctor Gorpon (1991) #1

The Stop Button Posted by on Jan 3, 2020

Doctor Gorpon is a nice bit of gross-out gore. Creator Marc Hansen’s cartooning has these thick inks, which perfectly complement the tentacles and intestines the title character is pulling out of monsters throughout the issue. Doctor Gorpon is a monster hunter, one who charges for his services whe read more

Carole, meet Weimar Germany

Carole & Co. Posted by carole_and_co on Jan 3, 2020

In the fall of 1930, Paramount sought to introduce its newly-signed Carole Lombard to international audiences by having her hold a large card with holiday greetings; this one was in German, another in Hungarian. But earlier that year, Lombard was given a publicity push in the Weimar Republic, and in read more

Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker (2019): An Adequate Force Awakens Sequel

4 Star Films Posted by 4 Star Film Fan on Jan 2, 2020

You might say I turned up to Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker out of respect for the dead. Because we’ve lost many of our beloved figures. Han. Luke. Carrie Fisher. Peter Mayhew. Kenny Baker. You get the idea. And from the rumblings I couldn’t avoid hearing, it felt like Star Wars might read more

Spawn (1997, Mark A.Z. Dippé), the director’s cut

The Stop Button Posted by on Jan 2, 2020

Spawn is really bad. It’s bad from the first frame, the first bad CGI vision of Hell. I’m not sure if it’s bad until the last frame, I didn’t bother with the end credits. But based on the music accompanying the start of the end credits… yes, yes, it’s bad until the final frame. Even if there’s read more

Throwback Thursday: The Professor’s First Treasure

Durnmoose Movie Musings Posted by Michael on Jan 2, 2020

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

Watching 1939: Boy Slaves (1939)

Comet Over Hollywood Posted by on Jan 2, 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 Weatherman (2019) #1

The Stop Button Posted by on Jan 2, 2020

I read the first Weatherman series because Nathan Fox having a steady gig seemed like it was worth seeing. And the series was fine… I didn’t even remember it ended on a cliffhanger though. This second volume continues the action as mind-wiped former interplanetary terrorist turned weatherman read more

December 2019 in Films

The Best Picture Project Posted by Alyson on Jan 1, 2020

December is such a busy month for a mom. Between all the insane prep for Christmas, dealing with sick kids and then getting sick myself, I couldn’t devote as much time to my love of film. Reviews are in the works for a few films, and I’m itching to get ready for Oscar season, nominations coming read more

Looking back, I see that I wasn’t blogging this time last year, and that’s a shame, because that’s the first time i would have been able to wish you a Happy Public Domain Day instead of an (Un)Happy one as had become the annual tradition around here. Why? Because last year was the read more

Nugget, or: Dream of the Sugar Fiend

The Stop Button Posted by on Jan 1, 2020

Every swallow has weight. I’m not sure if it’s the sugar, the alcohol, or what seems to be a coming nausea, but every swallow weighs. The bubbles in the champagne should help though. I just ate about a fifth or sixth of a Bavarian creme butter braid, a “Fun Size” Snickers, and a 60% Cacao Dark read more
