Here's the Character, Name the Movie (a game)

Let's see how well we classic film fans know the names of the characters of the films we watch.  It's easy to play.  Someone names a character (well-known or lesser known character, but the lesser knowns will, of course, be more challenging).  The…Continue

I'm getting a new cat, a Russian Blue. My previous cat, whom I gave to my son, is named Dashiell, sort of after Dashiell Hammett (who wrote The Thin Man and The Maltese Falcon), but also because I just liked the name. "Dash" also makes a good…Continue

Early Christmas for me!

Posted by Ktrek on November 12, 2014 at 1:33am 5 Comments

I know that this really falls more into "Don't Touch That Dial" group but I was excited to get this new limited edition of the Complete 1966 Batman box set. My wife recorded an unboxing video for me and I just wanted to share my excitement with my friends here at GAOH. I apologize in advance for any snafus (like me saying 1970s pop style when I mean 1960s) but that's what happens when you do things on the fly, and unfortunately you only have one go at it. So, here it is....

    A Thanksgiving Feast… of Photos!

    Alfred Hitchcock hopes you’ll tune into TCM Friday afternoon when they’ll be airing a batch of his films that you can enjoy with your Thanksgiving leftovers. Happy Thanksgiving! Like many Americans, I’ve been busy this week planning and preparing a holiday feast for my family. With this in mind, I thought I’d share an abundance […]

    Binary Code: When Aliens Attack/When Aliens Hug

    George Pal has a few movies today on TCM but not my favorite, War of the Worlds, which he produced while Byron Haskin directed.   I’ve always loved War of the Worlds, in both book form and both major movie adaptations, 1953 and 2005, as well as that certain radio adaptation in 1938.  In fact, […]

    Missing Reels: A Novel of Silent Movie Love

      Repertory cinema regulars can be off-putting types. They log their screenings like kids with baseball cards, reducing art to a collectible. This is the stereotype, at least, of shut-in cinephile obsessives. And these people exist – head to any Friday night screening at MoMA, where the rustle of plastic bags replaces human interaction.
