THE OUTLAWS IS COMING

The Hitless Wonder Movie Blog Posted by Dan Day Jr. on Jun 18, 2017

Before Adam West became Batman, he appeared in a number of roles that were typical for a young, handsome actor in the early 1960s. West showed up in several TV shows and played many second male lead parts in theatrical films. One of his most notable performances in his pre-Batman period has him alon read more

WONDER WOMAN

The Hitless Wonder Movie Blog Posted by Dan Day Jr. on Jun 15, 2017

Does WONDER WOMAN "save" the DC Cinematic Universe? Let's say it's a step in the right direction. It's a good movie, but in my opinion, not a great one. The main character is more impressive than the film itself. Gal Gadot is without doubt the best thing concerning WONDER WOMAN. I'll even go as far read more

Adam West (1928-2017)

The Hitless Wonder Movie Blog Posted by Dan Day Jr. on Jun 10, 2017

The passing of Adam West marks the passing of a childhood hero of mine. It was as a very young kid that I first started watching the 1960s BATMAN TV show. I was absolutely mesmerized by it. I hadn't begun reading comic books yet, but I didn't need to--the BATMAN TV show was a real-life comic book. T read more

The Hitless Wonder Movie Blog Posted by Dan Day Jr. on Jun 5, 2017

Dean Martin was one of the greatest all-around entertainers of the late 20th Century. He was a success on the big screen, on television, and of course as a recording artist. To pick just one of his films to write a blog post about it kind of limits the man. Nevertheless that's what I'm about to do w read more

THE BLACK HOLE

The Hitless Wonder Movie Blog Posted by Dan Day Jr. on May 30, 2017

Spending most of this month writing posts about STAR WARS has made me think about films and TV shows that were inspired by George Lucas' blockbuster. Many of these productions are almost forgotten today, and none of them achieved anywhere near the success that STAR WARS did. As a young geeky kid in read more

In honor of the 40th Anniversary of the original STAR WARS, here are 40 things I love about the movie. These are listed in no particular order, except for No. 1. 40.

What Do You Call STAR WARS?

The Hitless Wonder Movie Blog Posted by Dan Day Jr. on May 9, 2017

What do you call STAR WARS? What I mean is...how do you refer to the 1977 film that was originally released by that name? The reason I ask this is that I have noticed more and more people on social media call the film "A New Hope" or even "Episode IV". When STAR WARS is shown over broadcast televis read more

THE VAMPIRE BAT--Looking Better Than Ever On Blu-ray

The Hitless Wonder Movie Blog Posted by Dan Day Jr. on May 7, 2017

THE VAMPIRE BAT (1933) has long been a staple of public domain home video. The fact that it features stars such as Lionel Atwill, Fay Wray, Melvyn Douglas, and Dwight Frye has given several fly-by-night companies the incentive to slap a copy of it onto a videotape or a disc. Those cheap versions are read more

The 1959 Italian science fiction/horror film CALTIKI THE IMMORTAL MONSTER may not be magnificent, but the Arrow Blu-ray of this title certainly is.
