  1. Like with most of the foreign-language films TCM shows, the Lone Wolf & Cub series is available on Criterion DVD and Blu-ray. The schedules are usually set 2 or 3 months in advance, so July is the earliest that they would be likely to re-schedule the last two movies in the series. Unfortunately, whenever there's a relatively last-minute change to the schedule (usually due to a major celebrity death, but this time due to the COVID-19 necessitated cancellation of the TCM Film Festival), the stuff originally scheduled doesn't always get re-scheduled.
  2. I've always been a fan of the haunting score from the 1982 version of Cat People. The David Bowie-sung theme song is better in its opening moments than when it becomes a full-out rock track, but it was memorably re-used in Inglourious Basterds (2009).
  3. I watched a couple of newer releases a few days ago. Underwater (2020) - Kristen Stewart stars in this deep-sea survival tale. She's part of the crew of a huge drilling station located at the Pacific Ocean's deepest point. One night something goes wrong and the station is catastrophically damaged, killing most of the crew. The handful of survivors band together to try and reach the surface. Their difficulties increase when they are attacked by strange, carnivorous sea creatures. With Vincent Cassel, T.J. Miller, Jessica Henwick, John Gallagher Jr. and Mamoudou Athie. Much of the
  4. Unfortunately, no, I haven't been able to track down a copy to watch yet. Edit: In an odd coincidence, I just read that a Blu-ray release of Fear No Evil was announced this evening: https://www.blu-ray.com/news/?id=26742

  8. Yikes, that's a long list. I'll break them up by year. Have seen -1970: The Brotherhood of the Bell Crowhaven Farm The House That Would Not Die How Awful About Allan Ritual of Evil Sole Survivor Have not seen: Night Slaves
  9. That's Nippy's usual style. He "doan" care. I enjoyed the incredibly goofy Cruise Into Terror, as well. It was a lot crazier than most of the made-for-TV movies of the time. I had to check, but I haven't seen Nowhere to Hide. I have a book entitled Television Fright Films of the 1970's. Last year or the year before, I tried to see every one listed that I hadn't seen. I ended up catching about 75% of them. Most were available on YouTube, and many of them had good quality prints, too.
  10. It was also recently announced that there would be a 2K restoration Blu-ray of Killdozer released later this year. Talk about overkill... https://www.blu-ray.com/news/?id=26705
  11. House of Bamboo is enjoyable. I wasn't crazy about Tokyo Joe. They do continue the Japanese crime theme with the TCM Imports film Fireworks. I like that movie a lot, but it may be too offbeat and slow for many viewers.
  12. Why do you say that? It looks like Wicked Woman (1954) is on tonight and tomorrow. The only difference is that Saturday's showing starts 15 minutes later than usual due to the Bogdanovich stuff running long.
  13. Was there a scene with a vampire filmed with green slime? I know that Jerry Dandridge (Chris Sarandon) had a servant (played by Jonathan Stark, if I remember correctly), and I recall him getting slimy, but he wasn't supposed to be a vampire, but rather an undead servant of some sort. I really enjoy Fright Night, but I haven't seen it in years. I even bought an import deluxe Blu-ray that I haven't watched yet. With Amanda Bearse, Roddy McDowell, and Stephen Geoffreys (Evil Ed) in the cast, it's hard not to see a little something gay in the movie. Geoffreys later came out very vocally
  14. And not something that belongs on TCM Underground. I guess they just wanted another Susan Seidelman film to pair with the more appropriate Smithereens.
  15. Trump reportedly watches up to 7 hours of cable news every morning before getting to the Oval Office as late as noon President Donald Trump is watching hours upon hours of TV while he's cooped up and cranky in the White House as the coronavirus drags on, The New York Times reported. Trump views up to seven hours of cable news in the morning before arriving to the Oval Office as late as noon, when he finally gets his intelligence briefing, according to The Times. Former Presidents George W. Bush and Barack Obama typically got their briefings early in the morning. Bush would
  16. I like all three quite a bit. I've seen all 20 of Bird's picks, and have 19 of them on disc. Good films, but as has been stated, "same old same old".
  17. He was also in Woman of Desire (1994) which may be considered neo-noir.
  18. We've discussed Wayne's shoe size in the past, and the urban legend about his "tiny" feet being the cause of his lack of wartime military service. While his actual shoe size of 9 and a half is relatively small for someone of Wayne's height (6'4''), it's not debilitating (he was a champion-level athlete, remember), and had nothing to do with his being drafted or not. By the way, John Wayne's "official" stats have his boot size as 11. He was also known to wear to lifts make himself look even taller. The reason Wayne's feet look so small at Grauman's is because he didn't plant them in the
  19. I think we've discussed this before on here, but when I read a thorough Wayne biography a couple of years ago, they discussed his WWII enlistment issues in depth. He was granted a family deferment (which Wayne applied for) when his first draft notice came in. After the war office changed the draft guidelines a while later, it looked like Wayne would be drafted after all, so he volunteered to join but only if he were granted an officer's commission the same way John Ford was. However, Congress had begun cracking down on the large number of such officer commissions being doled out, and Wayn
  20. Thanks for the courteous response. It's much appreciated.
