Classics Galore!

I viewed some more good old black and white noirs last night up until the early morning around 3am I just love the ambience and scenery in which many of these good flicks project.

I can be entertained by them anytime of the day, nevertheless, I like those times during the evening, with the lights out quiet in the dark or dim lit, with my full attention focused on the suspense, thrill, and fun anticipation, and I reflect with a great appreciation for the era and creativity from back in the day.

First, I watched a film titled “The House On Telegraph Hill”, which I really enjoyed, it starred Valentina Cortese along with William Lundigan, Fay Baker, Richard Basehart, and Gordon Gebert.

Then, I checked out “Out Of The Past”, which starred Robert Mitchum, Jane Greer, and Kirk Douglas.

A few weeks ago I watched “Possessed” with Joan Crawford, Van Heflin, Raymond Massey, and Geraldine Brooks. “Clash By Night” with Barbara Stanwyck, Marilyn Monroe, Paul Douglas, Robert Ryan, and Keith Andes. “Born To Kill” with Claire Trevor, Lawrence Tierney, Audrey Long, Phillip Terry and Walter Slezak.

There was another two black and white movies a few months ago I kept missing while I just glimpsed at bits and pieces of them while I was in the midst of doing something around my home. I can’t wait to catch up with these two films in their entirety when they are featured back on.

Memorial Day

 

I slept good last night except for having to get up to pee from time to time.

Outside my window I could hear the decent partying going on from neighbors in celebration of Memorial Day the festivity continued on throughout the wee hours the music, singing, and the excited crowd and outpour of laughter and talk wasn’t a disturbance to me at all.

I enjoyed hearing the near distant gaiety. I live in a nice and quiet multicultural community and when they party it is delightful.

Before I went to sleep last night I tuned in to watch my film noirs. Alfred Hitchcock’s “Strangers On A Train” came on and for the first time I’ve got to watch it in its entirety.

Whenever it came on before I’d only see a few minutes of the beginning or didn’t get to see it at all because of other distractions, preoccupations, or just not having the time, but the film was phenomenal and entertaining I was too tired to look at the other noirs airing afterward so I went on to bed.

I’m enjoying the serenity of my home right now at the moment, I’ll cook me some food, relax a little bit, then head off to another day of work.

This Sunday Evening

The radio is playing some good old tunes from the seventies and eighties, jam after jam, back to back!

The rain was coming down here in Queens, New York, its finishing up right about now as the sun is partially back into view.

I made a dinner of rice pilaf and shrimp It was delicious. I plan on watching some good old black and white suspense movies later on tonight before I head off to bed.

Tomorrow I’ll spend my scheduled Memorial Day working a holiday shift that I took on and don’t mind doing.

Its all going nice and good I’m genuinely enjoying my day.

Oldies But Goodies

I just love those old black and white movies from the 1940’s on up there are so many and too many to mention but just to name a very small few such as Mildred Pierce and Straight-Jacket with Joan Crawford.

Dark Passage, In A Lonely place, and They Drive By Night with Humphrey Bogart.

Framed, The Big Heat and Gilda with Glen Ford.

Sorry Wrong Number with Barbara Stanwyck.

The movies and stars are countless as the list goes on and on I’ve been watching these flicks since I was a teen and am loving the ones that I didn’t get a chance to see back then now as every week I get to view those suspenseful noir.

A lot of these classics hold up today and are not corny many were ahead of their time, especially Alfred Hitchcock and his old entertaining series, along with One Step Beyond and Rod Sterling’s The Twilight Zone.

I also loved the private detective and cop series 77 Sunset Strip and Decoy. Whether these old classics were films or television shows from the past either in black and white or in color they are phenomenal to watch and enjoy still!

Movie: Hereditary

I went to the movies earlier this afternoon and viewed the horror film titled “Hereditary”. I knew that the movie was going to be good after seeing the coming attractions last month when I went to see another film.

I had been wanting to see a good chiller film and this was indeed one of them and one for those that could get into it and understand the storyline and occult twists that are brought to a spooky head during the conclusion.

It was a very well designed horror flick and one with an ending that was hauntingly authentic within it’s creativity and one that would make me want to stay clear away from anything associated with the devil.

The film’s depth centered around other deeper issues other than the supernatural even though that aspect figured prominently, however, that tree house scene was eerie and so realistic to a satanic worship “feel” that I’d never want to indulge in.

Movie deserves all the entertainingly thrilling hype!

Mother’s Day/My Birthday

My birthday fell on Mother’s day this year as I turned forty-three last Sunday and I spent the day at the movies with my mother since she planned earlier within that week for us to go see the thriller “Breaking In” starring Gabrielle Union.

The film was of very good quality with plenty of action, fantastic movie!

Avengers:Infinity War

It’s after one in the morning and I just got back from the movies.

I wanted to see one of the early evening premiere showings around seven, however, they were all sold out.

One theater was sold out for the entire weekend fortunately I was able to order in advance for a later showing tonight and the Avengers was really good, so full of action and great special effects, I especially loved the scenes of the fictional place in Wakanda where some of the Black Panther characters reprised their roles and collaborated/joined in battle with the other super heroes.

The entire film and cast did wonderful, Robert Downey Jr. looked good, I liked spiderman’s scenes along with the Captain America crew and much more.

The beginning of the film is entertaining as well, loved the scenes that was referred to as New York location they started off with action and such creative talent and imagination.
