Top 5 movie-going moments of 2017

content discovered on Friday, December 29, 2017 in

Again, not a whole lot of rare or unusual things happened at the movies this year, but there were some rare and unusual movies. 5. Talk of the Town at the Astoria Historical Society. It wasn't exactly a large crowd - it wasn't even a crowd - but Sandi and I enjoyed the movie nonetheless, we made a new friend, and the day on the whole was pleasant. I think the Society gets more people at screenings when they're tied to a major event of some sort. This wasn't. It's okay, though. 4. Rebecca at Vija's plac...

The Shape of Water

content discovered on Tuesday, December 26, 2017 in

The Shape of Waterseen @ Kew Gardens Cinemas, Kew Gardens, Queens NYEven as a kid, I had the impression King Kong wanted to, um, do the horizontal mambo with the chick. Maybe it's not as obvious in the Fay Wray original, but it sure as hell is inthe Jessica Lange version, the one I grew up with. I couldn't have articulated it then, but I distinctly remember having "that funny feeling" when he was alone with her, using his finger to tug at her clothes...In all those old monster movies wherethe heroine is ...

Off-topic: cookies a la Paddy

content discovered on Friday, December 22, 2017 in

So I was rummaging through Paddy's back pages and foundthis recipefor chocolate chip cookies, which she calls choir cookies (click the link to find out why). I've made a few desserts ever since I've seriously taken up cooking, but I hadn't tried cookies of any kind yet, so this seemed like a good time.The good news is, they were edible! I didn't follow the sequence exactly (I was finishing dinner at the same time I was working on these) and I thought they would come out wrong; plus, my oven didn't cook t...

Lincoln Plaza the latest theater to close

content discovered on Wednesday, December 20, 2017 in

...In an interview with Deadline, owner Dan Talbot and his wife said that they have done “everything we could ask for the lease to be extended,” but building owner, Milstein Properties, is only “looking to make money.”This one hurts. The Lincoln is simply a classy joint: an excellent selection of movies, good food, nice seats; some of the auditoriums have beams that obscure your view depending on where you're sitting, but not by much and not that many. While it's expensive, it's also in Manhattan in a to...

The Disaster Artist

content discovered on Monday, December 18, 2017 in

The Disaster Artistseen @ AMC Fresh Meadows 7, Fresh Meadows, Queens NYI've always felt I had some measure of artistic talent. People I trust - family, friends, teachers, critics - have said as much, and it has been a driving force, maybe the driving force, in my life: the belief I could do something with it, even if I could never decide exactly what... but what if I've overestimated myself?It's a question every creative person asks sooner or later, to themselves, if no one else: am I as good as I think ...

Lady Birdseen @ Kew Gardens Cinemas, Kew Gardens, Queens NYLet's talk about Saoirse Ronan, because I have a feeling we're gonna talk about her a whole lot more in the future. As I've said here, I knew she was going places the first time I saw her, in Atonement. Child actors who achieve success rarely live up to that promise as an adult, but so far, Ronan has bucked that trend.She's worked with quality directors: Joe Wright, Peter Jackson, Peter Weir and Wes Anderson, among others, with baby steps into th...

Requiem for a Heavyweight

Requiem for a HeavyweightTCM viewingBy the year 1954, television was taking off: Lucille Ball, Milton Berle and Ozzie Harriet Nelson had top-rated shows; The Tonight Showdebuted; Senator Joseph McCarthy became an unwitting TV star at the peak of the Red Scare - and a 30-year-old ex-radio writer had moved to New York with his family, stepping up from local TV in Cincinnati. His name was Rod Serling.If you've ever stared out an airplane window, wondering if a monster is riding the wing; if you've ever loo...

Five films based on self-published novels

content discovered on Wednesday, December 6, 2017 in

...Bestselling self-published authors attract producers because they have a proven track record if they stay on Amazon sales charts over time, Howey said. “Hollywood is always looking for a built-in audience. They want to know they’ll recoup their investment,” he says. “Modern films easily cost $100m to make, usually more. There isn't much room for risk here.”I've reached the end of the manuscript for my novel, though I can't call it finished yet; as a story, it's coherent, but there's more I can do to m...

Disastrous links

content discovered on Friday, December 1, 2017 in

If I were to guess, I'd say most of us knew, or at least suspected, sexual harassment existed within Hollywood and either accepted it as fact or perhaps assumed there were channels through which someone could go in order to combat it - SAG, for instance.If there's any justice, this current wave of exposure will have repercussions beyond the film industry because it is by no means limited there (as long as it doesn't morph into a witch hunt); what I wanna talk about, though, is how do we, the movie-going ...

Chitty Chitty Bang Bang

Chitty Chitty Bang BangAMC viewingAs a kid, I had this peculiar habit whenever a musical, whether live-action or animated, came on TV: if I really loved the music, I'd write down the song titles, or at least, what I thought the titles were. This was important to me in some way I can't explain; it was as if by doing this, the songs became, I dunno, more mine in some fashion, like they'd be easier to remember.I don't recall what I did with those lists. Maybe I stuck them in a notebook and left it in my des...

Super

SuperIFC viewingWhen Stan Lee, Jack Kirby and Steve Ditko forged the modern Marvel universe, their superheroes came with flaws: Spider-Man was burdened with guilt over an act of selfishness that came back to bite him; the Thing was bitter over his monstrous condition, blaming Reed Richards for it and taking his frustrations out on the Human Torch; Dr. Strange was an arrogant SOB who had to learn humility before he could master the mystic arts.Then, in a well-intentioned but ultimately misguided move, sup...

Murder on the Orient Express(2017)seen @ AMC Loews Orpheum 7, New York NYI regret I have not travelled often by train. Oh, I take the subway all the time, living in New York, not to mention the occasional ride on the commuter rails to Long Island and upstate, but to sit in a reclining seat (one you can sleep in), to have a separate car where you can eat, another where you can look out on the vast landscape as you chug along to wherever you're going... that's special.Train travel is more of a social exper...

Letter From an Unknown WomanYouTube viewingI met Ann Marie when I was seventeen. I was taking an afterschool art class in Greenwich Village. It was also the first time I had explored the Village on my own and I had fallen in love with what I perceived as the Bohemian romance of the neighborhood.

Justice links

content discovered on Thursday, November 2, 2017 in

This is all I will say about Harvey Weinstein, because I know you're sick of reading about him by now: I can't say I'm surprised, for one thing. Given his past inability to keep his hands off films (they called him "Harvey Scissorhands" for a reason), it follows that a man who wields power so cavalierly might also have a problem with keeping his hands off women too.Harvey will do his time in Hollywood jail (and maybe real jail too) and he'll return; the only question is how long. I mean, if Mel Gibson ca...

Island of Lost Souls

Island of Lost Soulsseen @ Landmark Loews Jersey Theater, Jersey City, NJOne wouldn't associate Charles Laughton exclusively with the horror genre, but the few films he has done are keepers: he was the hunchback of Notre Dame, for starters. I've never seen Lon Chaney's version, so I don't know how Laughton's version compares, but damn, was he good. He was one of the guests inThe Old Dark House, though his role in that wasn't anywhere near as showy. He directed Night of the Hunter which, although it's not...

It Chapter Oneseen @ AMC Loews Fresh Meadows 7, Fresh Meadows, Queens NYMy childhood fear was dogs, and I had it for a long time. It's perhaps my earliest memory: me, at perhaps two or three, on vacation at my grandma's house in Florida, running away on account of her dog. It was the first time I had ever seen one; don't remember what kind it was. I just know it disagreed with me. I didn't get far - at least I'm fairly sure I didn't - but by the time my parents caught up with me the psychological damage ...

Loving Vincentseen @ Lincoln Plaza Cinemas, New York NYI threw out most of my oil and acrylic paintings prior to my move to Ohio, in an attempt to straighten my closets and unburden myself of non-essential material, but I remember some of what they looked like.

What a Life

content discovered on Monday, October 9, 2017 in

What a LifeYouTube viewingWhat a Life is a largely forgotten entry in the careers of Billy Wilder Charles Brackett. Wilder doesn't even mention it in Conversations with Wilder, Cameron Crowe's book-length interview with the writer-director.It's based on a play, but Paramount liked it enough to turn it into a franchise, featuring Jackie Cooper's lead character, Henry Aldrich, no doubt to compete withAndy Hardyover at Metro. Prior to this, I only knew Cooper from theSupermanmovies from the 70s and 80s, bu...

The Star Machineis the third book I've read by Jeanine Basinger, and for someone who doesn't read a great deal of books about Old Hollywood (at least not as muchas some), I've found I really enjoy her writing in particular. She totally knows her stuff about film, but she writes almost like a really smart blogger than a university professor, which she is.You get a sense of her through her books: her life, her history with film, the things about them she values, even her sense of humor. Her books give you ...

Link runner

content discovered on Monday, October 2, 2017 in

I'm sure I've talked about this before, but I was reminded of it again recently and I feel like complaining. As you know, I come from a comics background. Marvel and DC Comics have broken into television and film in a big way now, to the point where secondary and tertiary characters, the ones only hardcore comics fans would have known in the past, are getting their moments in the spotlight.If you still actually read the comics themselves, I imagine it's pretty exciting, though my passion for superhero co...

Mr. Peabody and the Mermaid vs. Splash

content discovered on Saturday, September 30, 2017 in

You can go all around the world and find mermaid stories. The earliest tales go as far back as around 1000 BC, in ancient Assyria. Christopher Columbus thought he saw some. PT Barnum claimed to have one, but it was just a hoax. And of course, millions of people see mermaids every day on theircoffee cups!A chance showing on TV of theRon Howardromantic comedy Splash, a favorite from my childhood, reminded me of another mermaid movie, one I hadn't seen: Mr. Peabody and the Mermaid. I doubted the latter was ...

Television: Star Trek: Discovery

content discovered on Monday, September 25, 2017 in

I wish they'd admit Star Trek: Discovery is set in the alternate universe. From what I saw of it last night, I don't see how this could match up withThe Original Seriesbeyond the most basic ways. Everything about this new show, the sixth live-action Trek series, looks and feels like the Bad Robot-produced Trek films: the ships, the look of the aliens, the cinematography, the damn lens flares! And did everything have to be so grim?In terms of story - what I saw of it, anyway, since we only got one half of...

Mother!

Mother!seen @ Cinemart Fiveplex, Forest Hills, Queens NYI'm sorry, but I didn't get this movie. I understood that Darren Aronofsky was going for an allegorical kind of story, that what was presented shouldn't be taken literally (how can it?), and given a second or third screening, its true meaning might become clearer (the perils of the creative process, is my best guess at the moment), but I'm not sure I wanna sit through two more hours of watching Jenny Lawrence going through what she goes through.

A Double Life

content discovered on Wednesday, September 20, 2017 in

A Double Life YouTube viewing I still remember how shocking it was when Heath Ledger died. The widely-held belief at the time, which has persisted for years, was that his role as the Joker in the Batman film The Dark Knight somehow drove him nuts, that he took the role of the psychopathic thrill-killer too seriously, and this led to his death from drug overdose at the age of 29. Indeed, this perception may have led to his posthumous Oscar win.A documentarywas released earlier this year, made with his ...

Dear Ruth

content discovered on Monday, September 18, 2017 in

Dear RuthYouTube viewingMovies about life on the home front during World War 2 are of great value to us today in terms of seeing how the average American adjusted to wartime conditions: rationing, buying war bonds, planting victory gardens, that sort of thing. Watching fathers, brothers, sons and friends ship off to another country to fight must have been harrowing, but one gets a sense that those left behind knew their loved ones were giving their lives for a just cause - unlike today, when the reasons ...

I'll need a really compelling reason to vote for him again and at this point I don't have one.De Blasio was originally elected on the strength of his "One New York" campaign, which he has developed into a multi-part plan designed to make the cit...

Grant and Rogers in Monkey BusinessPaddy wrotelast week about Monkey Business, the Howard Hawks film with Cary Grant and Ginger Rogers acting like little kids and monkeys running around causing all sorts of trouble. In the comments, I mentioned something that occurred to me about this Old Hollywood flick I didn't think of whenI wrote about itearlier this year: the caliber of talent involved, on both sides of the camera, is way too good for a movie like this. More to the point, if it had been made today, ...

Television: The Orville

content discovered on Monday, September 11, 2017 in

I have nothing against Seth MacFarlane. Family Guy obviously owes a humongous debt to The Simpsons; it always bugged me that the similarities between the two shows weren't talked about more, yet I can't deny I've found it funny anyway. I never saw the Ted movies. MacFarlane's stint as Oscar host was certainly memorable, but ultimately he's not quite as edgy as he perhaps likes to imagine himself......and now he has a new, live-action series that's a clear homage to Star Trek - specifically,The Next Gener...

A Letter to Three WivesYouTube viewingA Letter to Three Wives was on my wish list for a long time, so I'm happy to have finally seen this one. It's a good premise, with an even better storytelling method: the titular letter is from Addie, the gal pal of the three wives, which says she's been having a secret affair with one of their husbands and she just ran off with him. The rest of the movie is like a whodunnit: through flashbacks, we get a closer look at the three marriages and how Addie figures into t...

Nutty links

content discovered on Friday, September 1, 2017 in

I'm afraid I don't have a lot to say about Jerry Lewis. For years he was little more than the telethon guy to me. I didn't study his films in my film history class in college, and I never went far out of my way to watch his movies on my own time. I have seen Nutty Professor, of course, and The King of Comedy, and I'm as curious as any film fan about The Day the Clown Cried (though at this point I suspect if it ever gets released, it'll probably be a letdown). Comedy remains an underappreciated art form i...

So have you heard about this big-dealsolar eclipsethat's supposed to happen this month? Bibi first told me about it; she and Eric wanna travel to the west coast to see it because the view is better there, or so she says. I don't recall the last time I actually witnessed one - and yes, I know you're not supposed to look at it directly; you know what I mean - but I figure this is noteworthy enough to pay tribute to it here with a list of movie eclipses.

Dunkirkseen @ Cinemart Fiveplex, Forest Hills, Queens NYDunkirk's place in world history isn't something generally taught in American schools; at least, it wasn't taught to me. Wikipedia says the French town is actually a commune, which is like a township. In 1940, during World War 2, the British army was stuck there, having been cut off by Germany, so they had to get out by sea. Winston Churchill put the call out to any and every available boat to come to Dunkirk and help get the soldiers the hell out o...

Sabrina (1954)seen @ Bryant Park Summer Film Festival, Bryant Park, New York NYI had always thought of Sabrina as a romantic comedy, but there's not a lot of comedy in the movie. For the most part, it plays like a straight love triangle story: very wistful, very angsty. Audrey pines for Holden, Bogey pines for Audrey. Why was it that Audrey's romantic leads were always so much older: Bogey, Peck, Cooper, Grant? I would've liked to have seen her with someone like Monty Clift, or Warren Beatty - but so it ...
