My Reputation

content discovered on Friday, November 21, 2014 in classic cinema, romance, sociology and politics, world events

My Reputationseen on TV @ TCM11.21.14There's been a great deal of discussion over the past few years about the decline of the romantic film, whether comedy or drama. (Earlier this week, The Dissolve was the latest film site to have a discussion about it.) When I addressed the matter a couple of years ago, I talked about how many of the industry's biggest leading men have been reluctant to appear in romantic movies (comedies in particular), a problem that didn't exist to anywhere near the same degree back...

Sunrise (1927)

content discovered on Tuesday, November 18, 2014 in classic cinema, drama, oscars, silent films

Sunrise: A Song of Two Humansseen on TV @ TCM11.17.14I first saw Sunrise in my college film history class way back when. I don't recall what my reaction was. It was without a doubt one of the very first times I had seen a silent movie, for what it's worth. As a movie, it's good, if somewhat melodramatic (to say the least). I like how it's almost entirely reliant on the visuals. There are few title cards, and the ones it has are used in unusual ways. There is, of course, the way the line "Couldn't she get...

Force Majeure

Force Majeureseen @ Kew Gardens Cinemas, Kew Gardens, Queens, NY11.13.14Pop quiz, hotshot!You're on vacation with your spouse and children at a ski resort. You're eating on a terrace when a big-ass avalanche comes tearing down the mountain headed straight for you and fixing to bury you alive. What do you do?What do you do?!Part of the appeal of superheroes, which are more popular than ever now, is the idea that anyone can become one, given the right circumstances. Pseudo-science aside, if we were bitten ...

Interstellar

content discovered on Friday, November 07, 2014 in movie industry, movie makers, science fiction, technology, ziegfield theatre

Interstellarseen @ Bow Tie Cinemas Ziegfeld Theater, New York, NY11.6.14Is film - the physical medium - dead? Hollywood studios have endorsed digital photography as the cheaper way to go, and movie theaters have been forced to compensate by installing digital projectors, at great expense for some. A small-but-growing number of filmmakers, however, have asserted that they have every intention of keeping celluloid alive for as long as they can. Many of them have gone on the record about this, and the reaso...

The Running Man

content discovered on Wednesday, November 05, 2014 in action adventure, movie stars, science fiction, television

The Running Manseen on TV @ IFC11.4.14Over four years of doing this blog and I have yet to talk about Arnold Schwarzenegger? This must not stand!Arnie was one of my cinematic heroes growing up, especially once I got cable and I could see his earlier films as well as his more recent ones. Lots of film writers have talked about the action movie stars of the 80s and 90s and how they reflected the attitude of America at large, especially under Ronald Reagan and George Bush the Elder. How ironic, then, that p...

Interview With the Vampire

content discovered on Tuesday, November 04, 2014 in books, horror, jobs

Interview With the Vampire: The Vampire Chronicleslast seen on TV @ BBC America10.31.14My Anne Rice story is much less exciting than I sometimes make it out to be. For awhile, whenever I would tell it, I'd embellish it, try to make it a bit more epic-sounding, but the subsequent years - not to mention the change in the way I think about Rice - have altered my perspective on it. Anyway, here it is; you can judge its epic-ness or lack thereof for yourself.It goes without saying, perhaps, that for many year...

Hungry links

Good news: I've got an ETA on the next issue of Newtown Literary which will include my short story "Airplanes." It'll be released in December... and that's about as specific as I can get right now. For those of you in the New York area, the magazine is available at Astoria Bookshopin Queens, a fine literary establishment which I heartily recommend.As for the WSW anthology, I admit I've slowed down on this because I've never published an e-book before and I'm kinda nervous about getting it right (although...

Malabar Farm: Ghosts and Hollywood

content discovered on Friday, October 31, 2014 in beyond nyc, movie stars, weird stuff, world events

[Maybe you believe in the paranormal. Maybe you don't. Either way, I suggest that you take the following for what it is: a really cool story from a good pal of mine. - RW]Guest post by Andrea McEnaney Ohio is not a state thought of as a getaway destination. When most people think of Ohio, if they think of it at all, they imagine farms and fields, not Hollywood icons. But for a period in the 1940s, Ohio was a destination for some of the biggest names in movies. James Cagney, Tyrone Power, Dorothy Lamour...

5 horror films from my childhood

content discovered on Thursday, October 30, 2014 in 3d, childhood, horror, lists and compilations, television

The TCM blog, Movie Morlocks, recently had a piece in which the author recounted how he got his child to not be afraid of what he initially thought of as relatively benign horror movies from his youth, such as the original Blob. I, on the other hand, had no such guidance from my folks; I discovered horror films on my own, and more or less dealt with the consequences of watching such films the same way. It's not that they didn't care. It's just that in some things, such as television, they were surprising...
