Not the banner year I’d hoped for at the Monolith in 2022, but I did watch a lot more movies, and tripled the number of posts…from two to six!
Nine months without posting, and THIS is what I come back with? But seriously, is there a better way to spend Christmas than with a giant flying turtle?
Not a song, but a book! Take a trip to Hollywood’s yesteryear with this entertaining collection of interviews from Walter Wagner, a book which contained an unexpected extra.
Reviled by many, enjoyed by few…on which side of the fence will I stand when it comes to this third James Bond adventure starring Pierce Brosnan?
In this next installment of Cinema Graveyard, I look back at another bygone theater from my past, the Vineyard Twin Cinema in Escondido, California.
Alfred Hitchcock tries his hand at costume dramas – and drags us along with him – in this tedious Technicolor offering starring Ingrid Bergman, Michael Wilding, and Joseph Cotten.
A special division of the Los Angeles Police Department investigates a string of suicides, involving a group of con artists, in this nifty crime thriller from RKO.
Wait, what’s this? A Year in Review post that’s just three weeks late, instead of three months? Could this be a sign of better things to come? Hmmm…
Forty years ago today, I went to the Plaza Twin to see ‘Raiders of the Lost Ark’ for the first time…and nearly got myself killed afterwards.
Last year I was nearly four months late posting this, but this year I’m only two! Join me now as I look back at the Monolith in 2020.
Happy Holidays, Monolith Fans! Thought you might like to know, Channel 11 in Tucson is airing a very cool Christmas special Thursday night, December 24th. Read on for more info!
I know the official anniversary date was June 20th, but for me, Jaws will always be associated with July 4th. So grab a bucket of chum and celebrate!
A women-behind-bars film? An Amazon rainforest adventure? Nope and nope…this low-rent crime thriller wants badly to be a tough film noir, but fails.
The Video Store Action Heroes are back in action, with a look at the films of director Walter Hill. My choice is a bayou action thriller from 1981.
Take seven doofs, throw them into an irritating story with even more irritating dialogue, make it all seem sophomoric and self-important, and what do you get? This, unfortunately.
Yeah, I know, I’m about three months late with this, but better late than never, right? Join me as I take a look back at Cinema Monolith in 2019!
