Well, well, well ... what do I have for you today?
Not a whole lot to ruminate over from the weekend. It was reasonably busy, true, but not a lot to report as it pertains to All Things Genre. I did, however, manage to watch on television last night the 1931 version of Dr. Jekyll And Mr. Hyde. It's honestly a very impressive adaptation, and it's very smartly made. The director included some weird visual cuts between a few scenes that were a bit experimental, it would seem, that I found distracting. They weren't as seamless as I think they could've been, but who knows? The producers might've wanted to tinker with the technology of the day to show audiences something different, especially given the era. I'll do some reading on it, and then I'll likely pen a review for this space. Interested readers should keep their eyes peeled.
As for today's citations?
There's a goodly amount -- an amazing 63, at present -- and I do have a few more that I'll likely be adding over the course of the day. I'm still working on a review for The Desperate Hours that I intend to get up this afternoon (at the latest) -- it's one of the better film noirs ever made, as I see things -- and maybe a few other surprises. But among the highlights for today is included the 25th anniversay of Soldier, a Kurt Russell flick that never got enough love. Good picture. Excellent ideas. And yet it's a feature that feels forgotten. That's sad.
In any event, I won't belabor the issue for you. What you really want is the gateway -- the link -- to all this gathered goodness, and here it is ...
As always, thanks for reading ... thanks for sharing (always a huge plus, folks) ... thanks for being a fan ... and live long and prosper!
