Movies I’ve stared at recently on TCM #70

Since I thought this past weekend was going to be a busy one, what with some projects I was working on and the like, I slacked off on last week’s Serial Saturdays and Doris Day(s) and instead finished up a couple of reviews for ClassicFlix—one of which has already been posted, Day of the Outlaw (1959).  I also peeked at some free HBO/Cinemax… Continue reading Movies I’ve stared at recently on TCM #70

Cinematic Vegetables (Part two in a continuing series)

I’ll say this for AT&T U-Verse: in the short period of time since we switched to the service in January, the House of Yesteryear has been blessed with two, count ‘em, two free preview weekends of HBO/Cinemax.  (One of them is currently in progress this weekend, and next weekend we’ll get our second look at Showtime/The… Continue reading Cinematic Vegetables (Part two in a continuing series)

Movies I’ve stared at recently on TCM #67 (John Garfield edition)

With AT&T U-Verse offering a free Showtime preview this weekend, I did what I could to make what available room was needed on the DVR (it won’t be as much as what I grabbed from the Starz!/Encore or HBO/Cinemax previews, because most of what’s on Showtime is not Scottish*).  As such, it made for this dan-dan-dandy post!  East… Continue reading Movies I’ve stared at recently on TCM #67 (John Garfield edition)

I knew there was a reason why I haven’t stepped inside a multiplex for three years now…

Faithful TDOY readers are aware of this but for those of you just joining us…I am woefully behind in catching up with recently-released movies.  Granted, it’s not something that keeps me awake at night because I’ve rationalized that there are too many older and classic films still on my “Must-See” list but occasionally it does cause me… Continue reading I knew there was a reason why I haven’t stepped inside a multiplex for three years now…

Hold on tight—you know she’s a little bit dangerous

I’m only speculating here, but I have a feeling that the reason for TCM’s showing of Mildred Pierce (1945) on The Essentials Saturday night was to cash-in on the 2011 remake that’s currently in progress on HBO (which I have not seen, but because the good people at Hobo are nice enough to send Ed Copeland free screeners he has the skinny… Continue reading Hold on tight—you know she’s a little bit dangerous

I’m going to sit right down and write myself a letterbox

Those of you who read this blog on a regular basis (as opposed to those who just look at the pictures) are no doubt aware that last July some fast-talking CSR at CharredHer Cable convinced me I could save a little bit of money on my monthly cable bill by adding Showtime /The Movie Channel, etc. to… Continue reading I’m going to sit right down and write myself a letterbox

“I’m Ron @#$%ing Swanson!” and the Age of Ophiuchus

I learned back in November of last year from my Facebook chum and blogging compadre Jaime “Something Old, Nothing New” Weinman that NBC was going to institute a three-hour block of sitcoms on Thursday nights beginning this January 20th and this event cannot arrive here soon enough for me…because it means the return of Parks and Recreation to the… Continue reading “I’m Ron @#$%ing Swanson!” and the Age of Ophiuchus
