Village of the Damned (1960)

content discovered on Friday, May 22, 2015 in classic cinema, horror, movie stars

Village of the Damned (1960)seen on TV @ TCMFor this post about Village of the Damned, I will speak in a British accent. What do you think? Is it convincing? I admit, I'm no Meryl Streep, but I don't think a British accent is too hard to pull off. You can't tell, can you? Okay, wait a minute, let me try something...centreneighbourhoodanar-kystHow about now? No? Well, I tried.This was one I had wanted to see for a long time. I already knew the premise - demon-seed Aryan kids take over a town with their me...

Ethel Waters

content discovered on Wednesday, May 20, 2015 in movie stars, music, race, television

I wonder how well Ethel Waters is remembered today by most people. As a Hollywood actress, I'm guessing she's probably not as well known as, say, Hattie McDaniel or Lena Horne or Dorothy Dandridge, and as a blues/jazz singer, she may not be as well-remembered as Etta James or Billie Holiday or Ella Fitzgerald.Hers was certainly not a name I remember from my early childhood, which was steeped in soul, country and disco from the 50s, 60s and 70s. She wasn't someone I learned about during Black History Mont...

Five more movie/TV characters that deserve statues

content discovered on Monday, May 18, 2015 in beyond nyc, big ideas, classic cinema, lists and compilations, television

So I spent last Friday in Philadelphia (traveling by BUS, permit me to point out), hanging out with friends, and while I was there, I decided to visit some of the prominent movie-related landmarks around the City of Brotherly Love. I was walking, so I didn't get to see as many as I had hoped, but I saw some: the church that was in The Sixth Sense, and the deli where Denzel Washington ate in Philadelphia. I wanted to find Eddie Murphy's street corner from Trading Places, but I didn't have time.The biggest...

Ray Bradbury and vintage science fiction films

content discovered on Friday, May 15, 2015 in books, classic cinema, science fiction, world events

Guest postby Maria Ramos Few science fiction authors have had the influence on the genre that Ray Bradbury has. His penchant for the strange and mysterious, coupled with evocative, lyrical prose, made his works readily accessible for adaptation into television shows and movies. Bradbury felt acutely the fears and anxieties that many Americans experienced during the Cold War and this is reflected in many of his works. Themes of identity and persecution tied directly to McCarthyismand the Red Scare, whil...

Pather Panchali

content discovered on Wednesday, May 13, 2015 in classic cinema, drama, film forum, foreign cinema, movie makers

Pather Panchali(AKA Song of the Little Road)seen @ Film Forum5.8.15Pather Panchali was yet another film I saw for the first time during my video store days in the 90s, when all I knew about it was that it was an Important Movie. I remember liking it, but I never had the inclination to revisit it or any of the other films in the so-called Apu Trilogy - Aparajito and World of Apu. So I was pleased to see that Film Forum was gonna show all three films this month, although this is probably the only one I'll ...

"...alligators have the right idea. They eat their young."Newtown Literary's Queens Writes Weekend went well for me. Friday night was the author reading at Astoria Bookshop. I was one of five featured authors, and once I got past my trepidation over reading a work of mine in public, I got through it okay. The host said he liked my speaking voice!I was also the only non-poet. In fact, this one woman preceded her reading with a tongue-in-cheek rant about this article in The Washington Post that asserted th...

New release roundup for April '15

content discovered on Wednesday, April 29, 2015 in science fiction

- Ex Machina. Tony Stark-like billionaire engineer creates robotic intelligence that he recruits a low-level tech employee of his to determine how lifelike it is. I was able to guess at some of the plot twists in this directing debut from screenwriter Alex Garland, but overall, it wasn't bad. Differs from Her in that the hand of the creator plays a central role in the story and acts as a wedge between the protagonist and the AI character. Visual effects are spectacular, making actress Alicia Vikander loo...

They Drive By Night

content discovered on Friday, April 24, 2015 in classic cinema, drama, movie makers, movie stars

They Drive By Nightseen on TV @ TCM4.20.15It was said that Ida Lupino referred to herself as the poor man's Bette Davis (even though they were both women, duh!). After seeing her in They Drive By Night, I can understand why. The movie is about the hard lives of truckers, in particular two brothers, George Raft and Humphrey Bogart, who dream of making it in the business. Lupino plays the wife of a trucking owner who has the hots for Raft, but he won't mess around with the wife of a friend. Besides, he's a...
