HITS & MISSES: Yesterday, Today & Tomorrow on TCM


Recommended Posts

 Friday October 29 Saturday, October 30 3h45 am  Exorcist II: The Heretic (1977)

 For masochistic film buffs: probably the worst movie ever made by a major studio.So bad there were some riots  in the States when it started first run,.I was a customer when it went first run,no riots in Montreal, but a lot of people still remember the word PAZUZU mentioned several times  by a drunken Burton in all his alcoholic glory. Stay away if you can,if not you have been warned....

midnight.  As the Earth Turns (2019).  This is supposed to be made from found footage of a film shot in 1938 but it appears that may be a prank.  It had very mixed reviews.

Some background information on the film, including a quote from TCM's SVP of Programming, Charles Tabesh:

10 p.m.  Fame (1980).  I saw this when it came out and couldn’t stand it.

There are some really good musical numbers in the film, though, especially Irene Cara's "Out Here On My Own".

Annex%20-%20Flynn,%20Errol%20(Escape%20M

8:15 a.m.  Escape Me Never (1947).  With Errol Flynn.  Now if only UA would give the BFI the rights to restore and release the 1935 Elisabeth Bergner version.  The BFI has a decent film print but no rights to digitize it.  It’s not a brilliant film but Bergner was nominated for a Best Actress Oscar.

Near Dark Profile Image
 
 
"Near Dark (1987) remains one of the most highly-regarded horror films of the 1980s and even though it has been followed in recent years by such popular books, films and TV episodes as the Twilight and True Blood series, it also remains one of the most convincing and brutal modern takes on vampire lore. ........
Bigelow has cross-bred vampire legends, westerns and biker movies to arrive at a combination that's both outrageous and poetic; it has extravagant, bloody thrills plus something else - something that comes close to genuine emotion." .........
 
 
Henriksen & creepy little Joshua Miller (River's Edge) make eeeeeeeexcellent vampires! !

sydney-greenstreet-spencer-tracy-james-s

1:45 a.m.  Malaya (1949).   With Spencer Tracy, James Stewart, Sydney Greenstreet and Valentina Cortese.  I still haven’t seen this one.

I highly recommend Malaya;    Tracy and Stewart are in fine form playing characters that are interesting and someone unique for both of them.   

Greenstreet was loaned out from Warners to do this MGM film and helps add to the overall vibe of corruption. 

While the plot revolves around rubber it is more hardball;  this film doesn't have many soft edges.
