The Old Dark House — 1932

It’s a genuine Universal horror classic that to my knowledge has never been available in a decent presentation — but The Cohen Group has come through with a nigh-perfect Blu-ray, both image and sound. Karloff is creepy, Gloria Stuart lovely and Ernest Thesiger is at his most delightfully fruity. And the potato lobby should be pleased, too.

Gold Diggers of 1935

The fourth in the popular Gold Diggers musicals, Gold Diggers of 1935 is glossier than previous entries and, since it was produced nearer to the depression’s end, pointedly free of the heavy dramaturgy that made the earlier entries so compelling. It’s a strong entry nonetheless with Busby Berkeley taking over both direction chores and, not for nothing, coming up with the ne plus ultra of Berkeley extravaganzas, Lullaby of Broadway. Starring the inveterate charmer Dick Powell and the Invisible Man’s girlfriend, Gloria Stuart.

Cult Horror, Film Noir, and Sci-Fi Movies Tonight on TCM: Ulmer Remembered

Edgar G. Ulmer movies on TCM: 'The Black Cat' & 'Detour' Turner Classic Movies' June 2017 Star of the Month is Audrey Hepburn, but Edgar G. Ulmer is its film personality of the evening on June 6. TCM will be presenting seven Ulmer movies from the mid-1930s to the mid-1960s, including his two best-known efforts: The Black Cat (1934) and Detour (1945). The Black Cat was released shortly before the officialization of the Christian-inspired Production Code, which would castrate American filmmaking – with a few clever exceptions – for the next quarter of a century. Hence, audiences in spring 1934 were able to witness satanism in action, in addition to other bizarre happenings in an art deco mansion located in an isolated area of Hungary. Sporting a David Bowie hairdo, Boris Karloff is at his sinister best in The Black Cat (“Do you hear that, Vitus? The phone is dead. Even the phone is dead”), ailurophobic (a.

Valentine's - Weekend

Team Experience is celebrating Valentines Day with favorite love scenes. Here's Jose...

Early on in my life I decided that all my favorite romances had to end with the lovers apart. And I mean, seriously, can you name a perfect romance that ends with happily ever after? From Casablanca to Dr. Zhivago and Roman Holiday, it's as if the movies have always told us that a brief, but powerful romance, the kind which makes us swoon in our 80s like Gloria Stuart in Titanic, is the kind of romance we all should crave. But it wasn't until I watched Andrew Haigh's Nottingham-set Weekend in 2011 that I realized as a gay man there was finally one of these romances for someone like me (I won't go into details of how this movie seems to me my biopic...) in which no one ended dead, as most gay romances do in fiction.

Examining Hollywood Remakes: The Hollow Man

  • Cinelinx
Our series on remakes continues with a movie which is ironic because it’s about a man who can’t be seen but in reality, it’s actually the movie which shouldn’t be seen. This week, Cinelinx looks at The Hollow Man (2000).

The Hollow Man is a modern reimaging of the oft-copied Invisible Man story, first brought to the screen by Universal Studios in 1933. The story is based on H. G. Wells' famous science fiction novel “The Invisible Man”, published in 1897, which told the tale of a scientist who develops an invisibility serum and uses himself as a test subject, becoming both invisible and dangerously insane.

The 1933 classic The Invisible Man, which was part of Universal Studios cluster of successful horror film franchises, was directed by James Whale, who also directed Frankenstein and the Bride of Frankenstein. The 1933 version has an impressive 100% rating on Rotten Tomatoes. It was selected

SAG Awards secret advantage: You'd better have an Oscar nomination if you want to win'
Out of 85 individual acting winners for film over the first 21 years of the SAG Awards, none have ever won without also being nominated for an Oscar. You may want to keep that in mind when you make or update your predictions as to the winners this coming Saturday. -Break- Subscribe to Gold Derby Breaking News Alerts & Experts’ Latest Oscar Predictions This correlation includes all of the more anomalous SAG results.

'Godfather' Traitor Dead at 94 – More Than Three Decades After His (Exaggerated) Obit Came Out

'The Godfather' actor Abe Vigoda. 'The Godfather' actor Abe Vigoda dead at 94; reports of his death in the early 1980s were greatly exaggerated Actor Abe Vigoda, little-known internationally – despite a supporting role in The Godfather – but popular in the U.S. as a result of the 1970s television series Barney Miller and of an erroneous 1982 People magazine obit, died in his sleep at his daughter's home in Woodland Park, New Jersey, on Tuesday, Jan. 26, '15.

One Record to Go Unbroken: Star Wars VII *not* to become top grossing movie worldwide?

'Star Wars: The Force Awakens': Darth Vader (?) wants to be no. 1. 'Star Wars: The Force Awakens' not to become top-grossing movie of all time on worldwide box office chart? J.J. Abrams' futuristic adventure movie Star Wars: The Force Awakens was the most awaited film release since … let's see … Marlon Brando and Maria Schneider made out in Bernardo Bertolucci's Last Tango in Paris back in the early '70s, destroying marriages, families, and whole nations. Or perhaps, since Luis Buñuel's Viridiana created a furor at the Cannes Film Festival back in 1961, leaving audiences the world over desperate for a look at the movie condemned by both the Spanish military and the Catholic Church for demonstrating that (at least a certain kind of) charity is a stupidity, not a virtue.
