  1. Well, its official. the DVD of Diary of a Mad Housewife is due on December 15th.
  2. I've seen both before. TCM is going into some pretty gory and fast currents tonight.
  3. it looks pretty much identical to the one that appeared on the new movie Tenet (somebody had a videocamera at a screening of it and captured the logo on YouTube), but on that particular film its tinted blood-red.
  4. The movie studios have over the years employed many different types of logos to differentiate themselves from their competitors and also to jazz up their traditional look. Warner Bros. just unveiled another look to their shield logo, even though it looks a bit cheap, it is a new chapter for them. So, with that in mind, lets think of other classic logos the studios have had over the years, shall we?
  5. Raise the Titanic is just leaping up ready to be booked for this.....
  6. i have some secondhand film reference books from the early 80s that give detailed synopses of films. I've had them since I was about 10 or 11 (I was a bit of a child prodigy when it came to film research, although I'm past the point to be called that now). And I clearly recall reading about Theatre of Blood and about that scene with Robert Morley and I felt sick to my stomach.
  7. Admittedly, three of their animated films were some of the better ones they had done in a long time, but the live action remakes of animated films were, on the whole, truly dispiriting. The Beauty and the Beast remake had me sinking in my seat. They aren't films that are built to last.
  8. Absolutely. Its growth only really started in 1985 or 1986. First they branched into TV shows (even if The golden Girls and Home Improvement were two of their only hits until the 2000s) and non-family films (Down and Out in Beverly Hills, The Color of Money, and Ruthless People were their first three Rs), then they started publishing books in the early 90s, followed up by swallowing up Miramax in 1993 and ABC (and A& E, History Channel, ESPN, Lifetime) in 1996 (that was when it was finalized), then a break, and then they dumped the adult movie business in the 2000s, grabbed Pixar in 2006,
  9. I'm late on this but its kind of expected. Even before the Disney takover, Fox occasionally branded their TV shows as only 20th Television, not as 20th Century Fox Television, and I'd seen the abbreviated name on countless Fox films on TCM and FXM.
  10. I subscribe to HBO, so yes the channel costs money. But if you are a cable subscriber to the channel you get HBO Max for free.
  11. 1. The Sound of Music 2 I Want to Live! 3 So Big 4 The Set-Up 5 The Day the Earth Stood Still 6 Star Trek: The motion Picture 7 The Sand pebbles 8 Executive Suite 9 The Haunting 10 Star!
  12. This one hurts. I have to admit the first time I saw her was in The Great Muppet Caper, a childhood favorite of mine; and needless to say she was exceptional in it with her classy and witty performance (including breaking the fourth wall a few times). She was heartbreaking in the Bond film, memorable in The Hospital, catty fun in Evil Under the Sun, and good in the 2006 version of The Painted Veil. She also had two good TV movies: as a nun in In This House of Brede and in a supporting part as another classy lady of fashion in Mrs Arris Goes to Paris (which starred Angela Lansbury). I see
  13. The only episodes of that show that are still in print on DVD (AKA still for sale and not at scalper's prices) are the ones with Diana in them.
  14. As i commented elsewhere, this would have negated the Best Picture nomination of 6 of the 9 contenders last year (Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, 1917, The Irishman, Joker, Jojo Rabbit, and Ford Vs Ferrari) alone. So, it will be interesting to see how this all pans out.
  15. Not really surprising. Even when most 2020 releases are hardly A list films, they still get the most motion in the open market.
  16. Goodwill Hunting, or Pardon Me, But You Are an Extreme Cheapskate The saga of seven steely women (Joan Crawford, Marie Windsor, Mercedes McCambridge, Ida Lupino, Joan Bennett, Signe Hasso, and Gloria Grahame) as they claw their way through thrift stores after hearing Liberace comment on TV that he found a Tiffany necklace on sale at Goodwill for $3. All of them are suddenly hit with the desire to hit those bargain racks, and their greed knows no bounds as they refuse to even pay full price on becoming 50 cent frocks. In the end, Windsor wins the war by finding an original Monet painting w
  17. Six Feet of Separation A new drama with the social distancing as a backdrop. Will Smith plays a con man who tries to manipulate Stockard Channing and Donald Sutherland over for money, but it doesn't pass muster in today's wired, distant world, not only can he not get close enouth to them to con them, but they use IMDb to realize that Sidney Poitier had no sons, and being a discerning couple, they would not be caught dead starring in Tom Hooper's version of Cats. He leaves to try to go con Paris Hilton and Tor Johnson instead.
  18. Have no idea, but Raise the Titanic has to be one of the most sleep inducing.
  19. Plus she also had a memorable recurring guest part on the TV series Ally McBeal in the 90s. She really enlivens any film she's in.
  20. I wonder if she feels for the woman on Jeopardy earlier this year who mixed up Chaka Zulu and Chaka Kahn, and thus stated that Chaka Kahn was an African warrior leader......
  21. Buena Vista Social Club is currently under contract to TCM's sister channel HBO, so that might be the reason why it disappeared.
  22. The Beguiled was actually made twice, once in 1971 like Eric mentioned, with Clint, Geraldine Page, and Elizabeth Hartman, directed by Don Siegel, and again in 2017 with Colin Farrell, Nicole Kidman, and Kirsten Dunst, directed by Sophia Coppola. It's not only evil in a girl school, but drenched in lustful passions (all the women that are of age long for the only man in the area), with a heaping helping of Southern gothic. The 1971 version plays it hot and heavy brimming over with hysteria; the 2017 version plays it cool and cerebral, with quiet malice.
