'Some things a man doesn't get over so easy... like the sightof a girl coming through the fields with the sun on her hair..."So this month, we've got the CinemaScope Blogathon with Becky, and once again I wanna thank everyone who's joining us. I'm absolutely thrilled at the turnout.Also, I'll return to the Queens World Film Festival, which is longer than it's ever been this year, which must mean there's more good movies to choose from! I'm also gonna try to include some genre pics, to break away from the...

A long life, and a prosperous one

content discovered on Saturday, February 28, 2015

He spent his final months trying to keep others from the same fate as him. He blamed cigarettes for wrecking his health and he encouraged others to quit smoking before it was too late. I would see him on Twitter, periodically imploring his many fans to not be like him in this respect. I hope people listened to him. If his death serves any kind of purpose, I sincerely hope it acts as a lesson to others.In addition - and I'm afraid I don't remember what spurned him to do this; perhaps it had to do with his...

New release roundup for February '15

content discovered on Friday, February 27, 2015

- Still Alice. Honestly, it's difficult to make affliction/disease movies distinctive anymore since, by necessity, they have to follow a similar pattern: normal life, discovery of affliction, cycling through the Kubler-Ross stages until we get to the misty-eyed slow death, or something close to it, at the end. Still Alice doesn't pave any new ground in this genre, but it is well done, and Julianne Moore makes it totally watchable and believable. Moore has always been a favorite of mine, from as far back ...

The Prisoner of Zenda

The Madeleine Carroll Blogathon is an event in honor of the actress, presented by Tales of the Easily Distracted and Silver Screenings. For a list of participating bloggers, visit the links at either site.The Prisoner of Zendaseen on TV @ TCM2.11.15I've seen lots of movies about double identities, and I'm sure you have too... and maybe if I had seen The Prisoner of Zenda before most of them, I'd like it more. As it is, I thought it was just okay. The double identity movie that it reminded me the most of ...

Rita Moreno

HEY YOUGUYYYYYYYYSSSSSSS!!!!!!!!!I wanna talk about Rita Moreno. SCHWING!I don't think I made it clear just how big a thrill it was to see her in person at the United Palace last year. I've always liked her and respected her, but hearing her speak about her career and her life with so much humor and candor was wonderful - and she still looks like a million bucks!As you may have guessed, when I think of her, I often think ofThe Electric Company. For you young'uns in the audience, this was an educationa...

#TCMparty: Annie Hall

content discovered on Tuesday, February 24, 2015 in comedy, friends, movie makers, movie stars, social media

This is a type of post I've never attempted here before, so bear with me if it doesn't work quite right. I've written before about live-tweeting movies and TV shows, as well as about the Twitter hashtag #TCMparty and my experience with it. Since I've committed to spending 2015 exploring classic movies in greater depth than usual, it seemed appropriate to spend some time live-tweeting a movie with the TCM fans on Twitter, but this is the first post I've devoted exclusively to the experience.In the past, I...

Oscar 2014: The winners

content discovered on Monday, February 23, 2015 in oscars

Best Picture - Birdman Best Director - Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu, Birdman Best Actor - Eddie Redmayne, The Theory of Everything Best Actress - Julianne Moore, Still Alice Best Supporting Actor - JK Simmons, Whiplash Best Supporting Actress - Patricia Arquette, Boyhood The rest. 13-for-24. Like I said, I knew I'd lose on a bunch of these. I never "got" Birdman. I knew it wasn't a bad movie by any means, but it never hit me like some of the other Best Picture nominees, like Whiplash, and espec...

To Kill a Mockingbird

content discovered on Thursday, February 19, 2015 in advertisements, books, classic cinema, drama, movie stars, race, writing

To Kill a Mockingbirdseen on TV @ TCM2.18.15My copy of To Kill a Mockingbird looks like the kind you'd get in school. For one thing, it's got "Property of the Board of Education of the City of New York" stamped on the first page. I don't remember what grade I read the book in, but I imagine it must have made an impression on me if I kept it. Also, it's got a hardcover that binds the pages so tight, the gutter comes very close to swallowing the text, so I have to turn the book around a little in order to ...

Alone at the movies?

content discovered on Wednesday, February 18, 2015 in audiences, big ideas, friends, sociology and politics

...When I was in my twenties, I developed the habit of going to the movies alone. Of course, I go with friends, too, and sometimes my brother and sisters, but going alone can be cathartic.... I remember in Louisville hearing a woman say that she wanted to go to the movies alone, and wished she had the courage. She ended up going with a bunch of other women to the bars that night, and I thought, "Jesus Christ, how will you have the courage to do anything in life if you can't even show up to the movies alo...
