History of the Motion Picture

In 1938 the justice department sued the major studios for “block-booking” films, being too monopolistic in the distribution of films, the justice department won in 1948 and the studios were forced into a new way of doing things, which lost them a lot of money. A large portion of the money earned was due to […]

I’ve been known for my recurring and frankly obsessive phases, especially when it comes to movies. One period of time you’ll see me going through a catalogue of horror classics, filling my fragile mind with visual gore, stupendous jump-scares and fiendish monsters. Another time I’ll be going through the filmography of one of my favorite […]

Once again, this is mostly memoir. I’ve changed the names and rearranged a few things to protect the guilty. I realize upon re-reading it that I might come off as a person who dislikes women. Not at all. I really like women. It’s just that I’ve been burned a few times. Refer back to the […]

A Ruined Chapel by Moonlight

Ah, dear readers, I have not been entirely forthright with you. For I saw Vox Lux before A Star Is Born. But I had to see the latter to know how it stacked up against the former, because the two films, released almost simultaneously, have drawn many comparisons. And indeed, there are some striking similarities: […]

The effects of the Paramount Decision of 1948 were far reaching and all encompassing.  The antitrust legislation deeply affected the Big 5.  One of the first things that was affected was Block Booking.  The studios could no longer force the theaters to purchase “blocks” of films.  This in turn allowed the independent studios to be […]

Highlight of my week? Eh…nothing really I did go to a library conference. I mostly kept to myself but did talk to the head library lady from my county and a few of the other librarians. The keynote speakers were so enthusiastic about librarians and what they bring to a school and community and I […]

  Hi everyone!   So, me and my pal Baymax up there, decided to share something else with you tonight, other than some movie stuff. I wanted to share with you my current music obsessions and of course to recommend them to you. Some are Korean, some are English but either way they’re all awesome. […]

Popcorn on My Knee: Movie Reviews and Reminesces

Ever since I saw the five Kleenex box weepfest “Five Feet Apart,” I’ve been thinking about whether it would be better to expire in a Hollywood movie or an indie movie. Probably the former since as long as I was the lead, I would have the advantage of a) flattering lighting, b) a soon-to-be-hit song, […]

When a movie is called Dragged Across Concrete, you can pretty much tell without seeing a single frame of it whether or not it’s for you. Lurid titles like that have become a bit of a signature for B-movie maestro S. Craig Zahler. The wildly talented writer-director’s previous films, 2015’s Bone Tomahawk and 2017’s Brawl in […]

If you thought Romeo and Juliet were reckless, wait until you get a load of these two. Enjoying Five Feet Apart (2019) was always going to be an uphill battle for me. For starters, the movie stars Cole Sprouse. Since taking on the role of Jughead on Riverdale (2017 – present), I’ve found the actor utterly […]

The final season of Game of Thrones premieres April 14. And after an 18-month hiatus, it’s hard to remember your Martells from your Tyrells, who killed who, and how many direwolves are still running around out there. And so, for the next seven weeks I’ll be covering a season every Friday, revisiting the series’ highs and lows […]

Amaka Loves Korea

Just listening to Block B’s “Be my light” and I can’t help but appreciate how strong their vocals are.  I love anything music so I am not being biased if I say that they are totally underappreciated. The song might not be recent but by virtue of the fact that it is on my playlist, […]
