The Alfred Hitchcock Hour: ‘See the Monkey Dance’ (Joseph Newman, 1964)

The Wonderful World of Cinema Posted by Virginie Pronovost on Mar 20, 2020

Not a long time ago I shared with you my thoughts on two great Alfred Hitchcock Presents episodes starring Claire Trevor. I felt like discussing Hitchcock TV stuff again but, this time, with its anthology series The Alfred Hitchcock Hour. The principle is pretty much the same as Alfred Hitchcock Pre read more

The Wonderful World of Cinema Posted by Virginie Pronovost on Mar 11, 2020

Unless you are a newbie here, it probably won’t be a mystery to know that, aside from classic films, my other great passion is a wonderful individual named David Bowie. People first know him as the music icon who wrote and sang Ziggy Stardust and inspired Fashion with his many transformations read more

The Wonderful World of Cinema Posted by Virginie Pronovost on Mar 8, 2020

I was super impatient to celebrate with you this golden, powerful, multi-talented actress that Claire Trevor was!

No need to be a Christian to appreciate Jesus of Montreal (Denys Arcand, 1989)!

The Wonderful World of Cinema Posted by Virginie Pronovost on Mar 6, 2020

It seems like it’s been ages since I’ve written anything for a blogathon! Luckily, March is a month that has a lot of them in reserve, the perfect way for me to get back in business. And one of these blogathons is one of my very favourites; the O Canada Blogathon hosted by two amazing l read more

The Wonderful World of Cinema Posted by Virginie Pronovost on Feb 8, 2020

Today, the prolific film music composer John Williams turns 88. To celebrate him, I’ve decided to share with you my 15 most favourite film scores composed by him. I believe that even if you aren’t into films, you are surely familiar with at least one of his compositions. Some of his the read more

Short Film Review: Meet the Author by Steve Blackwood (2018)

The Wonderful World of Cinema Posted by Virginie Pronovost on Feb 6, 2020

A few months ago, actor Steve Blackwood (Days of Our Lives, In the Light of the Moon) contacted me via The Wonderful World of Cinema‘s Facebook page to talk to me about his short film Meet the Author (2018). He directed it, wrote the screenplay and plays the main role. I felt highly honoured w read more

The Carry On Blog Series: My Conclusion

The Wonderful World of Cinema Posted by Virginie Pronovost on Feb 2, 2020

I started it on October 1st and completed it on January 30. The Carry On blog series has been the first “long term” project at The Wonderful World of Cinema, one that lasted much longer than I would have thought! Do I wish I would have been completed it sooner? Not necessarily, because read more

Carry On #31: Carry On Columbus

The Wonderful World of Cinema Posted by Virginie Pronovost on Jan 30, 2020

That’s it, folks! We have finally reached the LAST review for the Carry On blog series! I must now get used to the fact that I will soon have to move to something else. Unfortunately, among the few bad Carry Ons, Carry On Columbus is, in my humble opinion, probably the worst. What a sad way t read more

Carry On #30: Carry On Emmannuelle

The Wonderful World of Cinema Posted by Virginie Pronovost on Jan 24, 2020

Believe it or not, this is the 30th entry of this blog series meaning that it’s the before-last one (well, not considering the eventual recap)! It feels quite weird that this fun blogging task is about to come to an end. More importantly, the film I am reviewing today, Carry On Emmannuelle (G read more

Carry On #29: That’s Carry On!

The Wonderful World of Cinema Posted by Virginie Pronovost on Jan 22, 2020

Today’s Carry On review is gonna be fairly short as the 29th entry of the series has the particularity of being a re-cap of what the team had produced since 1958 when Carry On Sergeant introduced the series. That’s Carry On!, as it is called, was released in 1977 in a time where the pro read more

Carry On #28: Carry On England

The Wonderful World of Cinema Posted by Virginie Pronovost on Jan 21, 2020

That’s it, I’ve done it. I’ve watched Carry On England. Mission accomplished. Many people “warned” me that is was one of the worst Carry Ons. It’s certainly not the best, but my viewing helped me understand better why it has such a poor reputation. Carry On Engla read more

A Visit at the Exhibition ‘Intimate Audrey’ in Amsterdam!

Carry On #27: Carry On Behind

The Wonderful World of Cinema Posted by Virginie Pronovost on Dec 19, 2019

Hey everybody! I’m back today with another Carry On review, this time exploring Carry On Behind (Gerald Thomas, 1975). Surprisingly, this film is not so much about behinds except for a few gags. Its particularity, however, resides in the fact that it was the first Carry On film since Carry On read more

Carry On #26: Carry On Dick

The Wonderful World of Cinema Posted by Virginie Pronovost on Dec 9, 2019

A few days ago, I watched what marked Talbot Rothwell’s last participation in the famous British comic Carry On franchise: Carry On Dick (Gerald Thomas, 1974). Before watching it, I honestly had no idea what to expect. I knew that the Carry Ons I had left to see were far from being the best. read more

Carry On #25: Carry On Girls

The Wonderful World of Cinema Posted by Virginie Pronovost on Dec 2, 2019

This blog series is taking much more time than I was expecting BUT, in a way, that’s a good thing because it will feel weird once it’s over! And, we’ve now reached the film #25 in our exploration of these saucy and hilarious films! Carry On Girls, directed by Gerald Thomas and rel read more

Carry On #24: Carry On Abroad

The Wonderful World of Cinema Posted by Virginie Pronovost on Nov 29, 2019

The 24th entry of the Carry On franchise, Carry On Abroad (Gerald Thomas, 1972), was a special one on many aspects. First, just like the previous entry, Carry On Matron, it features a good number of regulars. And these create a strong feeling of nostalgia. June Whitfield’s presence has such a read more
