It's a damn good twitch. Can't believe you did not already have these three on dvd, redrum!

You don't know how movies many I  wish I had. I'm always looking for the bargains.

Going to a great Hal Ashby double-feature tonight, featuring the camerawork of the late Michael Chapman ("Taxi Driver", "Hardcore", "Raging Bull"), who passed away earlier this year.

The New Beverly is running a tribute to the late William Smith (who passed away July 5, 2021) all week. Last night was this rip-roaring grindhouse double-bill. "The Losers" was one of the inspirations to John Milius writing the "Apocalypse Now" script.

"A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood"

Was never a Mr. Rogers kid, but I was kind of shocked at how good and watchable this movie was.  Probably because I had such low expectations going in.  Great job by Marielle Heller.

"The Exception"

Another good watch.  Lily James.....yum !

 

I'm always behind, and have no problem waiting for movies to hit cable, and waiting for Winter to watch them.

The Tom Hanks movie? You should really watch the 2018 documentary "Won't You Be My Neighbor?", Mr. Bong. It'll put tears in your eyes. Mr. Rogers is one of the few men I unreservedly admired and no one had a bad word to say about.

The Mask of Fu Manchu - Wikipedia

Ever see the Christopher Lee 'Fu Manchu's? I have two original French Grande posters of Lee's Fu Manchu films.

A week's worth of going to the movies.

Tuesday August 24 at the American Cinematheque. Greg Proops Film Club podcast taping and introduction to Jacques Tati's "Monsieur Hulot's Holiday".

Later that same night, a rare screening of Bill Gunn's "Ganja & Hess", one of the stranger vampire movies I have ever seen.

Wednesday August 25 at the New Beverly Cinema. I love Veronica Lake but Eddie Bracken wears me out. He is one of the most annoying actors of the old Hollywood…even more annoying than Mickey Rooney. I left after this and did not stick around for the second feature.

Saturday August 28 at the New Beverly Cinema. "Heat" is 26 years old already. I still laugh because there is no way Amy Brenneman's character could afford to rent her home above Sunset Plaza with jetliner views on her bookclerk salary. Has anyone seen the Val Kilmer documenter yet?

Sunday August 29 at the American Cinematheque. Patton Oswalt introduces this loopy noir from 1944, "Phantom Lady". Directed by Robert Siodmak, it features the beautiful Ella Raines, who never became the big star she should have been…possibly because she looked too similar to Gene Tierney. It also features stiff and hammy performances by Alan Curtis and Franchot Tone. No wonder Tom Neal broke Tone's jaw. There are two reasons to watch this. 1) Thomas Gomez's sleazy detective. 2) Elisha Cook, Jr.'s hopped up jazz drummer.

The drum solo scene from "Phantom Lady".

 

'Ol Elisha looked like he was gonna have a heart attack. Was that Krupa on drums? Never saw that before. 👍
