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...

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...

The secret life of links

content discovered on Wednesday, June 29, 2016

First off, I wanna say the blog has experienced an upsurge in readership dating back to last winter. The page count total for May was the highest in almost four years. That's pretty amazing, and it's because of you, so thanks so much for sticking with me. I really appreciate the support.I did not realize Anton Yelchin was actually Russian. I suppose the name should've been a tip off, but I never gave it much thought. His Chekov was a sharp departure from Walt Koenig: a little younger, a little more manic...

For a complete list of the rules, visit the website.I picked up Dashiell Hammett's The Thin Man in a used bookstore on an impulse. It wasn't like I had any great desire to read it. For a brief period years ago, I had an interest in classic crime fiction, but it didn't last long. The thought of this blogathon did cross my mind, ...
