Summer Under the Stars 2018: Recommendations, August 9 – 15

Hello, movie buffs!

For this week’s recs, we’re covering all of the … Continue reading Summer Under the Stars 2018: Recommendations, August 9 – 15

Summer Under the Stars 2018: Recommendations, August 1 – 8

One of TCM’s most wonderful annual features is upon us, again: Summer Under the Stars, which began this morning! With a different star celebrated on TCM each day in August, blocking off entire 24-hour blocks to binge the films of our favorites is always tempting. It isn’t always realistic, however, so I’m carrying on TMP’s tradition of sharing recommendations for each day of SUTS! This … Continue reading Summer Under the Stars 2018: Recommendations, August 1 – 8

Celebrating “50 Years of Hitchcock” with TCM

I consider Alfred Hitchcock to be one of my favorite directors. He directed several of my all-time favorite films, including my ultimate “comfort film” pick-me-up, To Catch a Thief. I’ve seen Hitchcock silent and with sound, black and white and in technicolor. I’ve written about him on the blog many times: Celebrating To Catch a Thief for National Classic Movie Day in 2015 Reviews of big-screen … Continue reading Celebrating “50 Years of Hitchcock” with TCM

What I’d Be Watching: #TCMFF 2017

Another year, another TCM Film Festival I’m sadly missing. As a recent graduate in the middle of a horrendous job hunt, I couldn’t justify digging into my savings for flight, hotel, and all that jazz. Cross-country trips are pricey, especially with a huge event like a film festival included! But, as a TCM devotee with plenty of blogger friends attending the festival, I can still … Continue reading What I’d Be Watching: #TCMFF 2017

Summer Under the Stars 2016: What I Watched

The cable-accessing, U.S.-dwelling section of the old movie corner of the internet was full of sad faces at this time last week, as our Most Wonderful Time of the Year — TCM’s August Summer Under the Stars programming — ended. No more movie marathons! No more beautiful Lora Stocker SUTS flash cards on Twitter! How will we cope?! Well, one way I’ll be coping is by continuing to … Continue reading Summer Under the Stars 2016: What I Watched
