Loving Vincent

content discovered on Wednesday, October 11, 2017

Loving Vincentseen @ Lincoln Plaza Cinemas, New York NYI threw out most of my oil and acrylic paintings prior to my move to Ohio, in an attempt to straighten my closets and unburden myself of non-essential material, but I remember some of what they looked like. They were from my high school and college years, which also includes the summer I spent in a painting class inBarcelona. None of the work - none of what I remember, anyway - was anything special. My artistic talent has always manifested itself bet...

What a Life

content discovered on Monday, October 09, 2017

What a LifeYouTube viewingWhat a Life is a largely forgotten entry in the careers of Billy Wilder Charles Brackett. Wilder doesn't even mention it in Conversations with Wilder, Cameron Crowe's book-length interview with the writer-director.It's based on a play, but Paramount liked it enough to turn it into a franchise, featuring Jackie Cooper's lead character, Henry Aldrich, no doubt to compete withAndy Hardyover at Metro. Prior to this, I only knew Cooper from theSupermanmovies from the 70s and 80s, bu...

Books: The Star Machine

content discovered on Friday, October 06, 2017

The Star Machineis the third book I've read by Jeanine Basinger, and for someone who doesn't read a great deal of books about Old Hollywood (at least not as muchas some), I've found I really enjoy her writing in particular. She totally knows her stuff about film, but she writes almost like a really smart blogger than a university professor, which she is.You get a sense of her through her books: her life, her history with film, the things about them she values, even her sense of humor. Her books give you ...

Link runner

content discovered on Monday, October 02, 2017

I'm sure I've talked about this before, but I was reminded of it again recently and I feel like complaining. As you know, I come from a comics background. Marvel and DC Comics have broken into television and film in a big way now, to the point where secondary and tertiary characters, the ones only hardcore comics fans would have known in the past, are getting their moments in the spotlight.If you still actually read the comics themselves, I imagine it's pretty exciting, though my passion for superhero co...

Mr. Peabody and the Mermaid vs. Splash

content discovered on Saturday, September 30, 2017

You can go all around the world and find mermaid stories. The earliest tales go as far back as around 1000 BC, in ancient Assyria. Christopher Columbus thought he saw some. PT Barnum claimed to have one, but it was just a hoax. And of course, millions of people see mermaids every day on theircoffee cups!A chance showing on TV of theRon Howardromantic comedy Splash, a favorite from my childhood, reminded me of another mermaid movie, one I hadn't seen: Mr. Peabody and the Mermaid. I doubted the latter was ...

Where art and politics meet

content discovered on Thursday, September 28, 2017

This one's a little complex. Follow closely.Pamposted a link on her Go Retro Facebook page to an articleabout late-night television and how politicized it has become lately, especially in favor of the liberal side:...Regardless of your position on Obamacare or on the 2016 election, the bigger picture here is how ponderous and self-reverential and sanctimonious our late night shows (and their hosts) have become. Can we get back to entertainment please? If I want political debates on candidates and issues,...

Television: Star Trek: Discovery

content discovered on Monday, September 25, 2017

I wish they'd admit Star Trek: Discovery is set in the alternate universe. From what I saw of it last night, I don't see how this could match up withThe Original Seriesbeyond the most basic ways. Everything about this new show, the sixth live-action Trek series, looks and feels like the Bad Robot-produced Trek films: the ships, the look of the aliens, the cinematography, the damn lens flares! And did everything have to be so grim?In terms of story - what I saw of it, anyway, since we only got one half of...

Mother!

content discovered on Friday, September 22, 2017

Mother!seen @ Cinemart Fiveplex, Forest Hills, Queens NYI'm sorry, but I didn't get this movie. I understood that Darren Aronofsky was going for an allegorical kind of story, that what was presented shouldn't be taken literally (how can it?), and given a second or third screening, its true meaning might become clearer (the perils of the creative process, is my best guess at the moment), but I'm not sure I wanna sit through two more hours of watching Jenny Lawrence going through what she goes through. I m...

A Double Life

content discovered on Wednesday, September 20, 2017

A Double Life YouTube viewing I still remember how shocking it was when Heath Ledger died. The widely-held belief at the time, which has persisted for years, was that his role as the Joker in the Batman film The Dark Knight somehow drove him nuts, that he took the role of the psychopathic thrill-killer too seriously, and this led to his death from drug overdose at the age of 29. Indeed, this perception may have led to his posthumous Oscar win.A documentarywas released earlier this year, made with his ...
