  1. If I thought there was a buck in it, I'd do it. 😃

  5. As long as they are updated so that everyone (besides the killer) wears a mask and practices social distancing.
  6. These are just films guaranteed to put you to sleep.
  7. This is the greatest film of all time, from the greatest director of all time, starring the greatest Swedish actor of all time, featuring the greatest special effects of all time, along with the greatest script of all time. Now the costumes needed just a bit of work, but why nitpick. Our story opens with Criswell (the greatest psychic of all time, sporting the greatest coiffure of all time) setting the stage for the spine-tingling story about to be played out before us. From there, we get tender scenes of Bela Lugosi, the greatest bloodsucker of all time, mourning at his dead wife’s funer
  8. There was a short-lived television series in the 60s called "Fractured Flickers," hosted by Hans Conreid, which featured clips from silents and lampooned them. That was my introduction to silent films. After watching those episodes, I assumed all silents were costume dramas, slapstick comedies, or silly romances. Was I wrong!

While he is away registering his claim, another prospector, Mike O’Hara, comes along, and, seeing no one around, takes possession of the gold
  11. Damn, I missed that. I am so sick and tired of watching lesbians making out in black and white.
  12. Some were staged by publicity agents for the studio, but quite a few theater owners staged their own ... and ended up in court for it. You'll have to wait and see about that, in an upcoming review.
  13. Sounds a little like The Beach Girls and the Monster: https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0058954/?ref_=nv_sr_srsg_1
