Throwback Thursday -Starring Al Pacino As…

Durnmoose Movie Musings Posted by Michael on Jan 18, 2018

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

Flying High At The Close Of The Day – The High Flight TV Sign-Off

Durnmoose Movie Musings Posted by Michael on Jan 17, 2018

A while back I posted a comment on Facebook about movies whose premise was basically undone by modern technology. One example that came to mind at the time was William Castle’s 1965 flick I Saw What You Did And I Know Who You Are. Based as it is on the anonymity of pre-cell phone land lines, a read more

She May Be, But The Movie Isn’t – A Taxing Woman (1987)

Durnmoose Movie Musings Posted by Michael on Jan 15, 2018

One of my all-time favorite films is 1985’s Tampopo directed by Juzo Itami and starring his wife Nobuko Miyamoto which I have written about here and here. In 1987 the pair teamed again for a new movie, A Taxing Woman. Now one might think that having taken on the task of turning the search for read more

Silent Sunday – The Haunted Castle (1896)

Durnmoose Movie Musings Posted by Michael on Jan 14, 2018

Since Sunday tends to be a day of quiet and reflection for many people, it seems an appropriate day to celebrate silent movies. But in keeping with the “day of rest” theme, I’m just going to post this without any commentary and just sit back and let you enjoy. read more

Saturday Double Feature: Downsizing (2017) and…

Durnmoose Movie Musings Posted by Michael on Jan 13, 2018

Saturday! Double Feature time! Okay, as always, let’s start with a quick recap of the “rules”, shall we? The basic idea here is to take a movie that is out in theaters now, and pair it up with another movie from the 1980s or before. Sometimes the connection will be obvious, and som read more

Say “Cheese” 002 – Dear Mr. Wonderful (1982)

Durnmoose Movie Musings Posted by Michael on Jan 12, 2018

This past Christmas my son got me a Mill Creek box set called Awesomely Cheesy Movies. 100 movies on 24 disks, it’s actually a combination of two of their earlier released sets, “The Swinging Seventies”, and “The Excellent Eighties”. For those of you who may not be fam read more

Durnmoose Movie Musings Posted by Michael on Jan 10, 2018

It’s All About Getting Some Tail – The Lure (2015)

Durnmoose Movie Musings Posted by Michael on Jan 9, 2018

Once upon a time, there were two carnivorous mermaid sisters… Really, do I need to say anything more? No, I didn’t think so. But, for the sake of keeping this from being a one line blog entry, I’ll go on. Oh, and the movie is also a musical. Did I mention that? I have to admit I&# read more

Are They Talking About The Monster Or The Movie? – From Hell It Came (1957)

Durnmoose Movie Musings Posted by Michael on Jan 8, 2018

A while back I realized that Hulu had picked up the 80’s TV police series Hill Street Blues and remembering how much I liked it during its initial run, decided it was time for a grand rewatch. So far I’m about half-way through the third season, and it’s definitely holding up to my read more

15 Second Horror Film Challenge

Durnmoose Movie Musings Posted by Michael on Jan 5, 2018

There has been a lot of talk over the years about the shrinking of the American attention span. Back in the days when MTV actually showed music videos, it was blamed as one of the main culprits. Nowadays, I suppose the blame can be said to lie at the feet of the internet, cell phones, snapchat, or w read more

The Moose Returns

Durnmoose Movie Musings Posted by Michael on Jan 1, 2018

Last year was… let’s say… interesting in a number of ways to say the least.I won’t get into all that’s been going on here, but unfortunately, one of the ways that “interesting” has translated has been “not much blogging”, something I’m dete read more

(Un)Happy Public Domain Day 2018

Durnmoose Movie Musings Posted by Michael on Jan 1, 2018

It’s certainly not the way I’d like to celebrate my return to movie blogging, nor the way I would love to ring in the New Year, but here we are. Yep, once again, in what has become an annual tradition, it’s time to not celebrate Public Domain Day. What’s Public Domain Day? Simply put, read more
