    I Just Watched...

    Little Caesar (1931) Third or fourth time I've seen this. Edward G. Robinson is excellent, and sees that the film still holds up. I especially enjoy Thomas Jackson's languid performance as Sergeant Flaherty. Rogue Of The Rio Grande (1930) Watched this for Myrna Loy. It doesn't overstay its welcome at 51 minutes, but it is ultimately forgettable. Also, the print I watched (on DVD) is terrible and I can only find worse prints online. Recommended only for Myrna Loy completists.
  5. I made a gif comparison that makes the difference much easier to see:
  6. Here is a set of comparison images from Stamboul Quest to show what I meant. WatchTCM, wrong Aspect Ratio: Corrected Aspect Ratio: Not a huge difference on first glance, but when watching the films it occurred to me that people's faces looked wider than I remembered. So I measured the resolution, and compared it to the correct aspect ratio listed on the TCMDB, and realized that the they are being presented incorrectly in a stretched resolution.

    Getting It Right

    The Conqueror (1956) is among my favorite documentaries.
  8. Has anyone else noticed that on WatchTCM the movies are stretched slightly, thus messing up the aspect ratio? This actually keeps me from watching movies on the service, because I want to watch in the original aspect ratio. I can post some comparison images if anyone wants to see what I mean.

    WarnerMedia Streaming Service

    I'm disappointed that they didn't move all of the Warner Archive Instant movies over to FilmStruck when they merged. They seem to just be cycling some in and out. Warner Archive Instant had a pretty concrete library that almost never lost films and occasionally had more added. In the email about the merger I received, they even seemed to say that the films would all be available on FilmStruck after the merger: Most of the movies are gone, including oddities that I enjoyed watching, such as Bluebeard's 10 Honeymoons (1960) with George Sanders.

    I am in awe at the amount of movies LawrenceA watches. My goal is to start watching that many movies. LawrenceA, your posts are always nice to see on here and I look forward to them.

    Laird Cregar was a great actor. I love his character in I Wake Up Screaming (1941).
