Movies & TV

If we check out a movie or TV show, we’ll let you know what we thought. Most movies aren’t exactly current; I watch a lot of old movies that were filmed in black & white. So invite me to some movie premiers.

Blast Of Silence / Five Minutes To Live – Two crime stories from 1961 that are pretty interesting except when they’re not.

Shield For Murder – 1954 crime drama where a detective can’t catch a break just because he murdered and robbed a criminal bagman.

Baby Driver – Quick review of 2017 movie that has car chases and music. No, not a remake of Blues Brothers. Also, Lego Batman & Doctor Strange reviews.

High School Big Shot – Low grade tribute to Kubrick’s The Killing, but with really dumb teenagers trying double cross each other during a heist, as witnessed on Mystery Science Theater 3000.

Ghostbusters – 2016 remake of a movie I memorized in 1985.

The Prowler – 1951 story about a police officer who falls for a married woman and sets up an accidental shooting of her husband. No one seems concerned when he marries the widow.

The Woman In The Window/Scarlet Street – two noir films released in consecutive years featuring the same cast and by the same director with themes about painting.

The Wraith – 1986 thing that I guess is a movie about a guy who comes back from the dead and gets revenge with a car that, I guess, God gave him. Seriously.

Rogue One – 2016 movie that takes place a few minutes before Star Wars A New Hope (Jan. 11th, 2017)
