content discovered on Wednesday, April 16, 2014 in big ideas, bloggers and critics, movie makers, movie stars, sports drama

Draft Dayseen @ Jamaica Multiplex Cinemas, Jamaica NY4.11.14In a sense, what I'm doing with this Spoiler Experiment isn't terribly new for me. There have been movies in the past that I've seen knowing either (almost) everything or (almost) nothing. This, however, will be the first time I've made a conscious effort to pay attention to whether or not it makes a difference either way.I'm writing this section on April 10, the night before I go to see Draft Day, the first of my two case studies. To reiterate,...

The Long, Long Trailer

The Long, Long Trailerseen on TV @ TCM4.9.13In her superb book on how marriage is depicted in movies, I Do and I Don't, Jeanine Basinger devotes a section to the rise of television, in particular the birth of the domestic sitcom, and while she cites examples of shows featuring idealized nuclear families that Americans aspired to, there was one show in particular that, despite the atypical setting and characters, came across as more relatable:Most people think of I Love Lucy as a typical 1950s married cou...

The African Queen

The African Queenseen @ Landmark Loew's Jersey Theater, Jersey City, NJ3.29.14I had forgotten how good The African Queen is. I had only seen it once before, way back in my video store days, and all I remembered of it was the opening scene - Katharine Hepburn in that makeshift church, earnestly playing the organ to a bunch of stupefied African natives who have no idea what she's singing about.It's funny that I'd see a movie where Humphrey Bogart is at his scruffiest so soon after reading this article abou...

All-american links

content discovered on Tuesday, April 01, 2014 in bloggers and critics, books, favorite theaters, gender, race, silent films, television, writing

Last month, I was quite saddened to see that one of the last neighborhood movie theaters from my youth, the Jackson Cinemas in Jackson Heights, was closed for business. The movies on the marquee were Thor: The Dark World, Catching Fire and Frozen, so based on that, I'd say it's probably been at least three months since they closed their doors.I've written about this place many times in this blog,mostly positive but sometimes negative. As much of a beloved hot spot as it was for me growing up, those days ...

In recent years, however, he and his constituents became notorious for sitting in judgment on their fellow man in a fashion numerous Americans found reprehensible.This godless heathen believes Phelps was a small-minded, bigoted, intolerant, hypocritical sham of a human being and that the wo...

Muppets Most Wanted

Muppets Most Wantedseen @ Jamaica Multiplex Cinemas, Jamaica NY3.27.14The superb movie site The Dissolve wrote a piece recently about Muppets Most Wanted from the angle of how a movie like this can't help but recycle certain themes from past Muppet movies because these days, that's the safest way to guarantee that people will actually go see it:...Is there an inherent limit to what talking, singing animal puppets can do in a movie? Or are studios simply too timid to push those limits? On the big screen, ...
