G.W. Pabst's silent German classic is intact, restored and looking great. Louise Brooks is the virginal innocent betrayed on every level of the sexual double standard. Brooks is nothing less than amazing, with a performance that doesn't date, and Pabst only has to show how things are to make a statement about societal hypocrisy. German cinema doesn't get better. Diary of a Lost Girl Blu-ray Kino Lorber Classics 1929 / B&W / 1:33 flat / 112 min. / Tagebuch einer Verlorenen / Street Date October 20, 2015 / available through Kino Lorber / 29.95 Starring Louise Brooks, Fritz Rasp, Valeska Gert, Franziska Kinz, Edith Meinhard, Andrews Engelmann, Kurt Gerron, Siegfried Arno, Sybille Schmitz, André Roanne. Cinematography Sepp Allgeier, Fritz Arno Wagner Art Directors Erno Metzner and Emil Hasler Original Music Javier Perez de Azpeitia (Piano) Written by Rudolf Leonhardt from the novel by Margarethe Böhme Produced by Directed by G.W.

Vengeance is mine, sayeth the Lord – and many horror films to boot. Payback has always been a constant theme, whether it’s a sinister spirit avenging murder, or a maniacal parent repaying camp counselors for not watching her handicapped child. The meteoric rise in popularity of video games and personal computers at the turn of the 80’s, married with ancient evil, brought a modern edge to this shopworn trope. A sympathetic tale of comeuppance, Evilspeak (1981) serves up its revenge under the computer screen’s warm glow.
Released by Moreno Films, first in Japan in August of ’81 and February of ’82 in North America, Evilspeak nearly made back its 1,000,000 Us budget opening weekend stateside. A few good reviews trickled in, comparing it favorably to the high school horrorfest Carrie (1976). Regardless of comparisons, it stands as a unique antique of a burgeoning time in technology and a potent payback tale.

Read More: How 'Wet Hot American Summer' Creators David Wain and Michael Showalter Got the 'Camp' Back Together "Airplane!" (Jim Abraham, David Zucker and Jerry Zucker, 1980)Office-set high jinks have long made for excellent television show fodder -- from "Night Court" to "Taxi," "The Office" to "Cheers," the landscape has always been vast and chockfull of possibilities -- and a fresh television take on "Airplane!" could easily take off using that kind of framework. The original Zaz feature film made generous use of flashbacks (including literally haunting disco melodies) and frequently alluded to pre-existing relationships, so while it may sound a little silly (fine, even surely silly) to claim that the film has a rich universe of information to pull from, the signs are there. Just imagine the possibilities: a Mash-like treatment of Ted Striker's time in the war, a goofy workplace sitcom about whatever the hell happens »

Everyone loves binge-watching shows on Netflix. But the problem with watching an entire season of any show in a week or two is that the window for people to talk about that show comes and goes very quickly. For example, even though Netflix premiered the new Marvel Studios series Daredevil just last month, no one […]

In the wake of the "Parks and Recreation" finale, a Twitter follower asked me if the period when NBC had "Parks," "Community," "The Office" and "30 Rock" on the same night was the best comedy bloc ever. I replied that at least two other very strong alternatives immediately came to mind: NBC Thursdays for a few seasons in the mid-'80s with "The Cosby Show," "Family Ties," "Cheers" and "Night Court" (a night that also had "Hill Street Blues," and is therefore frontrunner for Best Overall Night of Network Programming Ever), and CBS Saturdays in the 1973-74 season with "All in the Family," "M*A*S*H," "The Mary Tyler Moore Show" and "The Bob Newhart Show." Call it, friendos: is one of those the best of all time? Is there another bloc — and all four comedies have to be great, as opposed to what "NewsRadio" creator Paul Simms once dubbed »

TNT’s The Librarians shot out of the gates, and how could it not, and the network has finally announced a renewal.
Considering the numbers, this isn’t exactly a surprise. According to their own statement, it was the #2 basic cable show of the year, so bringing it back probably isn’t anything that fans were worried about… except that it kept not happening.
It isn’t actually a long time since the first season ended, but by today’s standards, it has been a bit of an odd wait. The delay is perhaps a hint at some behind-the-scenes uncertainty over contracts and schedules, especially in the case of Noah Wyle, who both is and isn’t a regular feature of the show, and who has other shows to do.
At any rate, you can rest easy. And, look for your chance to catch the show, if you haven’t already, »
