Underwear Pervert Movies – S01E07

For this week’s Watch.Read.Listen., we discuss movies based on comic books, especially those featuring super heroes (super-heroes? superheroes?). In our mostly-chronological conversation, we chart the evolution of the comic book movie from 1978’s Superman through the current Marvel and DC movies, no doubt fogetting some along the way. In our “This Week” segment, we discuss: Duane:…

EXORCIST II: THE HERETIC, Directed by John Boorman, Starring Linda Blair, Richard Burton, Max von Sydow, James Earl Jones I sat down to write about watching American Graffiti… and then I realized I had completely blanked about watching this. So, this article is a few weeks late. For that I apologize. Mildly. Life happens, and…

365 Movie Challenge: Day 7

THE EXORCIST (1973) Directed by William Friedkin; Starring Ellen Burstyn, Jason Miller, Max Von Sydow, Linda Blair This is a bit of a cheat. But it was interesting to realize that I had never seen the original theatrical cut of The Exorcist. I went to the theaters in 2000 to see the recut extended version…

PHANTOM OF THE PARADISE (1974) Directed by Brian De Palma; Starring William Finley, Paul Williams, Jessica Harper In just the past year I’ve become the biggest Brian De Palma fan.

THE BAD SEED (1956) Directed by Mervyn LaRoy; Starring Patty McCormack, Nancy Kelly So let me be upfront at the start. I’m a day behind. Which sucks, but that means that coming this weekend all you fine folks will get a twofer (more than likely a double bill of Brian De Palma films). Now, onto…

365 Movie Challenge: Day 4

THE NIGHT OF THE HUNTER (1955) Directed by Charles Laughton; Starring Robert Mitchum, Shelly Winters As a cinephile, it’s sad to admit that I’ve never watched The Night of the Hunter. Despite it appearing on many best-ofs (the best that sticks in my head is Bravo’s 100 Scariest Movie Moments list), I just hadn’t worked…

365 Movie Challenge: Day 3

FADE TO BLACK (1980) – Directed by Vernon Zimmerman; Starring Dennis Christopher I had a feeling this would happen. Sometimes, it’s best to not attempt watching a film when trying to put one’s young one to bed. Because I constantly had to start, and stop, start, and stop, etc. Kind of made it jarring to…
