47 Movie Blogs #41 – Seven Movies That My Apocalyptic Bunker Would Be Stocked With…In the Darkest Timeline!

So the idea here reflects back on the entry in this series from 5 posts ago, where I talked about the seven movies I’d stock my apocalyptic bunker with.  You can read it here.  But in this case, it turns out that not only am I in the middle of some sort of global apocalypse, but also I’m in the darkest timeline.

47 Movie Blogs #40 – Great Opening Titles

In theory, I’m really into opening titles – the blend of music, movement and graphic design that tell you what the film you are watching is called and who all the cool people are who were involved in making it.  In practice, I often don’t remember them.  But when I was asked to do this blog-post, I found there were a handful that I could recall in a certain amount of detail, and with a certain level of fondness.

47 Movie Blogs #39 – Bizarre Musical Interludes in Movies

47 years old is only a few weeks away, and here I am with more posts to do to accomplish this large but ultimately frivolous exercise.  Today we talk about a few examples where enjoyable films have been derailed, at least for the moment, but what I can only term as bizarre outbreaks of song and music.

47 Movie Blogs #38 – Seven of Film’s Worst Fathers

I’ve long had brewing a post about the best and worst dads of not just movies, but TV and comics as well.  Today, thanks to the instructions I’ve received, we’re talking about just the bad ones, and of course only the ones from movies.

47 Movie Blogs #37 – Top 4 Animated Films

Given the choice, I wouldn’t normally choose to watch an animated film.  Like many parents, I’ve watched a disproportionate amount of them over the years, and while there are lots that are only suitable for children, there are plenty that have got a lot going for them.  Enough that it was a bit difficult to limit myself to four.  Continue reading 47 Movie Blogs #37 – Top 4 Animated Films

47 Movie Blogs #36 – Seven Movies I’d Choose to Stock My Apocalyptic Bunker With

This is happening, people.  Apocalypse approaches (What type?  Maybe one of these?) and I have time to get into a bunker, but I only have time to find seven movies to bring with me.  Seven movies to take with me into the rest of my lonely, miserable, purpose-questioning existence. Continue reading 47 Movie Blogs #36 – Seven Movies I’d Choose to Stock My Apocalyptic Bunker With

47 Movie Blogs #35 – Why I Don’t Like Jurassic Park

OK, just to be clear, I don’t hate Jurassic Park.  It’s got the best dinosaurs we’d ever seen in a film up to that point (by a long shot) and it’s got a number of really gripping sequences (that terrifying opening, the T-Rex attacking the jeep, the velociraptors come out in full force).  But even so, I don’t think it’s something I could actually call a good movie. Continue reading 47 Movie Blogs #35 – Why I Don’t Like Jurassic Park

47 Movie Blogs #34 – Three Favorite Buddy Movies

Today we are talking about Buddy Movies, my three favorite. There are some really obvious, really famous examples of this particular sub-genre, but I find there aren’t that many that I’ve loved, and most of those that I have I actually don’t remember that well. But as usual, after thinking for a bit, a few came to mind. Continue reading 47 Movie Blogs #34 – Three Favorite Buddy Movies
