Please rent For the Love of Spock (2016)

For the Love of Spock (2016) is a great documentary and a good experience.  It’s the usual documentary of interviews and behind-the-scenes information, but the background information about Leonard Nimoy is really moving.… Continue reading

Freddy vs Jason (2003) … Remembered

I saw Freddy vs Jason opening night and it was like being at a packed football game.  The showing was completely sold out and the crowd was really into it.  The laughed at… Continue reading

The Game of Death … Memories

I have a lot of memories of The Game of Death, which stars Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, James Tien, and Bruce Lee.  It’s an incomplete movie, but I think it could be one of the… Continue reading

Memories of Jason and the Argonauts (1963)

I can remember seeing this movie when I was just a kid in school, and was lucky enough to see in class, though I don’t remember which one, but it was probably either… Continue reading

The evolution of Roger Ebert and me

I recently saw the 2014 documentary Life Itself about the life of Roger Ebert, which made me wax nostalgic about family, friends, and movies.  I think I’ve been aware of Roger Ebert for… Continue reading

Conan (1982) … Remembered

I remember Conan the Barbarian (1982) being one of the biggest cult hits among my friends long after it came out, but it was one of those off-limits movies, as the violence, nudity,… Continue reading

Do you remember The Fly (1958)?

Vincent Price starred in The Fly (1958), and one scene will be stuck in our cultural lexicon forever, right alongside Darth Vader, Humphrey Bogart’s quotes in Casablanca, and Homer saying “Doh!”.   The… Continue reading

Vincent Price’s House on Haunted Hill (1959) … Remembered

William Castle pulled out his latest gag to freak out young people, and rake in the cash, thereby making more out of less in his 1959 production of House on Haunted Hill.  This… Continue reading

Memorial Day Memories #2: Paths of Glory (1957) by Kubrick

I love The Dirty Dozen (1967), Midway (1976), and The Guns of Navarone (1961) for Memorial Day, but I tried to make some new Memorial Day memories by watching this Stanley Kubrick movie,… Continue reading

Memorial Day Memories: The Dirty Dozen (1967)

This Dirty Dozen (1967) succeeds in spite of the 60s anti-war era, mainly because of its characters.  Anyone who watches movies will recognize many of the faces in this film and all of… Continue reading

The Ipcress File starring Michael Caine (1965) … Remembered

As if some Robert Redford political thrillers weren’t enough, I was lucky enough to discover a spy film called The Ipcress File (1965), which tries its best to be everything James Bond is… Continue reading

Point Blank (1967) … Remembered

Point Blank is a 1967 film so deliberately sadistic that the New York Times said it was not a picture for anyone of delicate taste, which is putting it mildly. This film is… Continue reading

Three Days of the Condor (1975) … Remembered

Three Days of the Condor (1975) is another political thriller starring the guy who is in all political thrillers, Robert Redford. If it has shady government practices and criminal political dealings, then Redford is… Continue reading

The Day of the Jackal (1973) … Remembered

  I continue my inadvertent political thriller week with another well-made movie, The Day of the Jackal (1973). Once again, I was told this movie is the best of the bunch and the suspense… Continue reading

All the President’s Men (1976) … Remembered

I watched All the President’s Men (1976) starring Robert Redford to find out if this movie was the greatest political thriller of all time like people say it is. This movie has won all… Continue reading
