    The most horrible remake ever to be made

    I agree that all the remakes mentioned above are awful but no one has mentioned the film I consider to be the absolute nadir of remakes. I refer to the 1973 musical remake of Lost Horizon. A film that gives me nightmares just knowing it exists. The original Lost Horizon was one of those...

    Who Did You Just See Live?

    Last week was Leonard Cohen at the Palace Theater here in Columbus. 75 years old and the man does a 3 1/4 hour show. Amazing.

    What Was The Last Movie You Watched?

    Duck Soup and Forgotten Silver were the last two I watched. Duck Soup is my absolute favorite Marx Brothers movie. Eminently quotable and loads of fun. I highly recommend Forgotten Silver to any silent movie afficionado. It's a faux documentary about the greatest filmmaker to come out...

    The movie is actually a sequel to Alice In Wonderland and Through The Looking Glass. It's about Alice running away from the man she is to be engaged to. From Wikipedia: Alice, now 17, attends a party at a Victorian estate only to find she is about to be proposed to in front of hundreds of...

    Who watches the WATCHMEN?

    Was it just me or did the Nixon in that film look more like Bob Hope?

    Vintage Telephone Ringtones

    When my cell phone rings a voice intones "Who knows what evil lurks in the hearts of men... The Shadow Knows!" Really freaks out anyone standing near me when I get a call.

    I like it. The new poster is by Drew Struzan. Take a look at his website www.drewstruzan.com to see some of his other work.

    Movies And Their Profanity

    I've been looking into the occurrence of profanity in movies and believe I have found the first use of the f-bomb in a popular film. It was in the 1970 film M*A*S*H and was spoken by John Schuck during the football sequence.

    Steampunk, Dieselpunk, etc.

    I prefer the name Kaja Foglio came up with for the genre. She refers to it as "Gaslight Fantasy".

    OH-IO Who lives in the Buckeye state

    I'm here in Columbus, Ohio. I'm more of a retro film buff than clothing buff but only because they don't tend to have decent retro clothing in my size. Now maybe if the Sydney Greenstreet estate has a sale...

    Lovers on-screen, loathers off?

    I seem to remember hearing that Olivia De Havilland and Errol Flynn didn't get along too well on the set of "The Adventures of Robin Hood".

    Spooky Stuff...

    One of the stops on my vacation last year was in Grover's Mill, NJ. There's a park with a plaque dedicated to "The War of the Worlds". Sitting in that park at twilight and listening to a recording of the original broadcast was my favorite moment of frisson.

    Is youth around the corner?

    Actually, that's just going back to the original book. In the book (written in 1967) the cut off age was 21 but when they made the movie they didn't think they could pass Michael York off as being under 21.

    How Did You Discover Old Time Radio?

    For me it was the records of OTR at my library when I was about 8 years old. I saw this picture of a man wearing a cloak and wearing what looked like a red scarf and I had to know more. From such small beginnings began an obsession that lasts to this day.

    Best time machine movie

    That would be the classic "A Sound of Thunder" by Ray Bradbury. Read the story, avoid the movie at all costs. I'll chime in for Time After Time along with the rest of the crowd. That was the first time I saw Malcolm McDowell as a hero and I was really impressed. I'm also a big David Warner...

    Classic One Liners and Quotes

    I'll make him an offer he can't refuse. - The Godfather Now you listen to me, I'm an advertising man, not a red herring. I've got a job, a secretary, a mother, two ex-wives and several bartenders that depend upon me, and I don't intend to disappoint them all by getting myself "slightly"...

    Dealing with rude people

    Always good to find another Utah Phillips fan in the crowd. I can handle the rudeness in public. I can handle the rudeness in the car. What I can't handle are the phone calls. People who aren't blocked by the DNC list because I have some sort of "business relationship" with them (i.e. I...

    David Niven deserves recognition

    That's one of those films that is on my "Why isn't that on DVD?" list. I saw it for the first time when they re-released it many years ago and fell in love. That was the movie that started me hunting down Michael Powell films. Another David Niven performance that I really enjoy is his...
