I was gonna write this month about the new Star Trek series, Discovery, but the news out of Comic-Conwas less than I expected. Bryan Fuller says he wants to "strike new ground" with this show, and I believe him. I just wish he was doing it on regular TV and not some special subscription service. Bibi and I talked about Discovery briefly when I sawBeyondwith her and Eric, and she's not thrilled about having to pay to see it either. No point in complaining about it now, I guess. I'll watch the free premier...

Books: Alice's Adventures in Wonderland

content discovered on Sunday, July 31, 2016

From an early age I've always been taken by Alice's Adventures in Wonderland. LikeThe Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe, I was fascinated with the idea of discovering a magical other-world by accident, when you least expect it, and would've given anything to have had it happen to me. As a budding artist, John Tenniel's illustrations captured my imagination as much as the story. I think I may have even tried to copy them for myself - freehand, of course. I know I tried making some originals.The volume of A...

ShaneTCM viewingIn one of my favorite 90s action movies, The Negotiator, there's a scene in which Kevin Spacey and Sam Jackson debate the ending of Shane. The latter says Alan Ladd is alive, despite the gunshot wound he took. The former insists he's actually dead as he rides off on his horse. They never settle the matter definitively.Maybe it was my TV, which is pretty old and starting to show signs of wear. Maybe it was TCM's print. I don't know, but the ending looked so dark it was really tough to even...

Star Trek Beyond

content discovered on Wednesday, July 27, 2016

Star Trek Beyondseen @ New Paltz Cinema, New Paltz NYNew Pallz, New York is a small college town in the Hudson Valley. Bibi and Eric have lived there for many years. It suits their temperament. It's ultra-liberal, scenic, close enough to New York that it doesn't seem too far away, yet distant enough to feel autonomous. I visit them once or twice a year. Sometimes they come down here to New York to visit me. Bibi and I were debating what to do during my trip up there last Saturday when we realized we had ...

The Abyss

content discovered on Friday, July 22, 2016

The AbyssSundance Channel viewingI always thought Ed Harris should have been a bigger star. Like Harrison Ford, he's got the rugged good looks, he can do action or drama and sell you on him with a fierce intensity, and he's worked with some great directors: Cameron, Stone, Howard, Eastwood, and Weir, to name a few. Plus, he's a great yeller. I usually expect him to do some quality yelling whenever I see him in a movie. He's just really good at it. If you saw enough of his movies, you'd understand.1989-20...

Books: A Tree Grows in Brooklyn

content discovered on Friday, July 15, 2016

The 2016 Summer Reading Classic Film Book Challenge is an event in which the goal is to read and write about a variety of books related to classic film, hosted by Out of the Past. For a complete list of the rules,visit the website.A Tree Grows in Brooklyn is one of the quintessential New York books. I like it for the way it captures, in great detail, city life in the early 20th century. Betty Smith brings you not just the general sights and sounds, but the way people talked, the kinds of food they ate an...

Les Cowboys

content discovered on Monday, July 11, 2016

Les Cowboysseen @ Lincoln Plaza Cinemas, New York NYLes Cowboys was a movie Vija had suggested for our movie group and I went to see it only because I hadn't seen her in a few months. I had nominated a different movie on our Facebook page, but apparentlysomething very bad happens to a dog in it, which didn't go over well with the animal lovers in our little group, so Vija recommended this instead. All I knew about it came from a single review I had read which seemed positive, but with reservations. Didn'...

The Most Dangerous Game

content discovered on Saturday, July 09, 2016

Hot and Bothered: The Films of 1932 Blogathon is exactly what it says on the tin. It is hosted by Once Upon a Screen and Cinemaven's Essays From the Couch. For a complete list of participating blogs, visit the links at either site.The Most Dangerous GameTCM viewingI watched The Most Dangerous Game, but honestly, I wasn't that impressed. It doesn't get interesting until the third act, and I can't say I cared that much aboutJoel McCrea's character. Plus, given recent events, a movie about killing people fo...

If I were a TV horror host

content discovered on Thursday, July 07, 2016

A couple of weeks ago, Jen told me about a silly little 50s sci-fi flick she saw on MeTV (The Leech Woman, if it interests you). She said one of those old-fashioned TV horror hosts introduced the film and provided commentary before and after commercials, which I thought was pretty cool. I didn't think they were still around. A quick online search revealed the host was Chicago'sSvengoolie, a host I had heard of before, though the one on MeTV is actually the second to bear that name.I don't remember any ho...
