"I read the House of Dark Shadows novel back in the summer of 1971. I enjoyed it but I am not sure why I picked it up since I wasn't watching the show at the time. It would be many years before I finally saw the movie. I liken it to the better…"
"In the '80's I worked for a small art studio where my duties included running a stat camera. I would often be given a black and white photo that needed to be pasted up in a layout. In order for the continuous tone photo to be reproduced…"
"In one of her Dark Shadow books, Kathryn Leigh Scott related the time when two actors, whom she does not identify, began their scene together by reciting each others lines. At some point they realized what they were doing and managed to get the…"
"I much preferred Happy Day's first two seasons when the show was filmed in a studio and Richie was the focus of the stories. It had much more of an American Graffiti vibe. When they went to a live audience in season three Fonzie had become the…"
"Continuing my jazz listening from last week with Relaxin' With The Miles Davis Quintet via digital download. And I fired up the old turntable and gave a listen to the Let It Be album and Pisces, Aquarius, Capricorn and Jones by the…"
"A quick check shows the second volume to be tough to find especially at a price I'd be willing to pay. I do have some Byrne FF's that I picked up as back issues that I can pull out. When you get started on the second volume maybe I will…"
"I wasn't buying comics in the Eighties so I missed Byrne's entire run. His take on the FF is so often mentioned as a series high point I feel that I need to read them at some point.
I have finally read most of Walt Simonson's run on…"
"Over the past few weeks I have watched the entire 4 film run of Ip Man films on Netflix. The first one is quite good but the quality diminishes with each sequel. That being said, Donnie Yen is terrific throughout the entire series."
"I think it is just as much the writers, directors and producers who think they are too sophisticated and approach the material with a dismissive attitude that ruins a project.
The Depp movie was okay as a light hearted horror movie but it was…"
"I'd love to see it on the big screen but I haven't been in a theater since last March and don't feel comfortable going now. My wife and I are scheduled for our second dose of the vaccine next week - maybe a trip to the movie theater…"
"Of the few that I am familiar with, Cesar Romero ranks at the top. Powdered mustache notwithstanding, he really looked like the Joker. Mark Hamill is up there as well for his voice work on the animated version. Hamill should also get credit for his…"
"Reading this detailed synopsis makes me wish that DC had published another volume or two of Showcase Presents Superman. The reprint series ended with volume four which took us up to the beginning of 1964 - Superman #166 and Action # 309. There were…"
"Family Plot (1976) Hitchcock's final film. Having read mixed reviews, it was better than expected. Suspenseful as well as funny in spots.
Hitchcock hired John Willliams to write the score following the success of Jaws."
