The Fill-In Filmography

I have never purchased anything from Pop Chart before, but I really wanted their Fill-In Filmography the first time I saw it. You may think that Diane and I watch a lot of movies. We don't. Outside of this month and our ongoing Warner Brother's Top 100 Film project, we are lucky if we watching … Continue reading The Fill-In Filmography

WB Top 100: Bullitt (1968)

During the 2017 holiday season, I got a great deal on the Best of Warner Bros. 100 Film Collection. Diane and I haven't seen most of these movies, but we are committed to watching one a week and writing a short review. We both have heard of Steve McQueen - thank you Pixar - but … Continue reading WB Top 100: Bullitt (1968)

If Beale Street Could Talk (2018)

For dad’s birthday weekend extravaganza, we took a break from eating lobster tails and watching baseball to watch a movie. We chose “If Beale Street Could Talk”, the 2018 drama, because dad had “heard a lot about it on TV”. This isn’t a shocking reason for choosing anything and it was a welcome choice when … Continue reading If Beale Street Could Talk (2018)

A Bulleted List of Reasons We Turned Off Aquaman

When it comes to writing thirty-one movie reviews in a row, not every review written can be a winner and neither are all the movies we watch. Sometimes you have your father coming over for his birthday the next day and you just want to have something on while you bake a cheesecake. Sometimes that … Continue reading A Bulleted List of Reasons We Turned Off Aquaman

Ex Machina (2014)

“Ex Machina” was the perfect follow-up to watching “2001: A Space Odyssey”. In many ways, the films are similar. The dialogue and exposition are limited. There’s a constant flow toward something - a building tension - but you are not sure what. Both also talk about artificial intelligence and related concepts. And, for us, “Ex … Continue reading Ex Machina (2014)

WB Top 100: 2001: A Space Odyssey (1968)

During the 2017 holiday season, I got a great deal on the Best of Warner Bros. 100 Film Collection. Diane and I haven't seen most of these movies, but we are committed to watching one a week and writing a short review. Like so many fans of film, I consider myself a fan of Stanley … Continue reading WB Top 100: 2001: A Space Odyssey (1968)

Trailer Park

Life intervened today, so I wasn't able to finish and review the movie I intended. To keep with the theme (and maintain my post spree), I thought I would share some trailers I have seen recently that have my interest: Dolemite Is My Name I am not expert on the blaxploitation genre, but I loved … Continue reading Trailer Park

WB Top 100: Cool Hand Luke (1967)

During the 2017 holiday season, I got a great deal on the Best of Warner Bros. 100 Film Collection. Diane and I haven't seen most of these movies, but we are committed to watching one a week and writing a short review. There’s something impossibly cool about Paul Newman. He oozes a quiet kind of … Continue reading WB Top 100: Cool Hand Luke (1967)

Creed (2015)

I have had a soft spot for anything boxing related since watching the classic anime series Hajime no Ippo. Everything but the sport itself. While watching boxing is often a bore, media about boxing manages to make myths out of men and heroes out of those who are not. It's the deeper dive into why … Continue reading Creed (2015)
