Here is episode 31 of "Adventures Of Superseven" titled, "Operazione: Video Musicale". A silly, different and fun musical romp with a finale that is Monkees-esque. Enjoy the show and please remember to leave votes, "Likes" and commentary on the…Continue
I thought I would add a thread to discuss the last "classic" movie you watched. As opposed to just any movie. I might start a thread for modern films later. I would prefer that you post more than just a title.KevinContinue

In honor of Mother's Day, I'm reposting this quiz that I created a few years back. I hope it's neither too hard nor too easy, just amusing enough. See how many you can name without looking up the answers on IMDB! The answers will be posted in a few…Continue
I don't cry at movies, as a rule, though I plead guilty to sobbing through the last 10 minutes of The Bridges of Madison County. I'm a hopeless romantic, what can I say?Have any of you ever choked up, even a little bit, at one of your favorite…Continue
Thoughts today as as wistful look as to why myself and others watch 'classic Film"? Why do we see these celluloid examples of stories past with an affection when others that we talk to stare at us in disbelief that we would dare to watch " a movie without color". I had someone say that to me with the remark that he was 'not as old as me". Got me to thinking do you need to have some sort of life experience no matter what to watch these pictures. So why do we fill our PVR's, buy dvds and blurays of the same films just get a commentary or a few new scenes added of long dead people from a place that doesn't for the most part exist anymore. I don't pretend to have the answer for all or maybe even for some but I have ideas and feelings.
My day began like any other day at my job however the morning check of facebook brought a very sad story to my attention. The simple story of a small neglected kitten that had died at a rescue home after being unable to have…

When applying for film school in Mexico Viviana García-Besné was told that her family had been involved in making some of the worst films in Mexican Cinema history, the Ficheras. Ficheras were racy comedies typically set in cabarets and featured popular music. They were sure-fire money makers at the box office, as a genre they were publicaly condemned by the Mexican government. Viviana had grown up not knowing much about her family’s involvement in involvement in the Mexican film industry during a time that is known as the Golden Age of Mexican Cinema (1936-1960). She however, had heard her grandmother’s…Continue

Anybody who knows me knows that I am a huge Star Trek fan and I just returned from seeing Star Trek Into Darkness.
I will probably be in the minority of all the geeks in Trek fandom, but this film was in my opinion meh. I waited four years to see what? a flip flop remake of another Trek movie I dearly love. No real significant character development whatsoever from the first film? A two hour video game with lots of cool lens flares? Cumberbatch wasn't very convincing to me as a villian. I like him better as Sherlock. I thought Nero, the villain in the first film was lame and Harrison is only barely a step above that. Very few "Star Trek" moments in this film. It could have been named anything else but Star Trek and I probably would have enjoyed it more. The…Continue

That first night at diner Constance draws lines with her fork on the table linen, causing Edwardes to become agitated. The next day, Edwardes and Constance go…Continue
