Retina


Retina is a cyberpunk sci-fi film from our friends at Popcornflix.  You can find them on Roku, and look for their themed channels if you have a genre preference.

I really am trying to screen these before I post them so that I have something insightful to contribute but I do not have the time presently.  I am working on it, though!

I hope you enjoy this Friday Night Feature and check back again next week!

Mythica: A Quest for Heroes

A Quest for Heroes is the first installment in the Mythica mini-series, a Fantasy/Sci-Fi microbudget franchise which has garnered decent reviews.  I cannot personally comment on the film, as I have not yet viewed it due to time limitations (work schedule and such), but the reviews and comments are overwhelmingly positive.

We do our best to bring you movies either in the public domain or offered for free by studios, distribution platforms, and channels featuring streaming content for free.  Many times, these are small, independent studios and projects that barely pierce the mainstream zeitgeist, yet are always entertaining.  Formerly, these would be called "also-rans" or B-Movies.

The Mythica: A Quest for Heroes is the first part of the Mythica series we hope to bring you over the next few months.

The Magic Sword (1962)

The Magic Sword (1962)

Starring Basil Rathbone as the evil wizard, Lodac, Bert I. Gordon's 1962 Fantasy classic, The Magic Sword, is one of Gordon's better works.  Arguably, this is saying something, as Gordon helmed a slew of low-budget (though generally well-received by audiences) films throughout this era -- many of which, including The Magic Sword, were featured on Mystery Science Theater 3000.

Sherlock Holmes: The Pearl of Death (1944)

Sherlock Holmes: The Pearl of Death (1944)

Based on the Sherlock Holmes short story, The Adventure of the Six Napoleans by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, 1944's The Pearl of Death is from the popular, feature-length series starring Basil Rathbone and Nigel Bruce as the titular team.  This one was chosen as a companion to The Lodger from the last post.

As a fan of Sherlock Holmes, and these selections, I am delighted to bring these public domain film and TV gems to you.  You can also find them on many public domain channels (both radio and TV).  Most consider Rathbone to be the preeminent Sherlock Holmes, and The Pearl of Death is the ninth film featuring the team.

The B-Raters vs. April Fool's Day

The B-Raters vs. April Fool's Day


I have no problem confessing a soft spot for this admittedly flawed, but thoroughly entertaining, cult classic!  

Check out The B-Raters' site for more riffs and information on cult flicks.

Nancy Drew... Reporter (1939)

Nancy Drew... Reporter is a 1939 Mystery/Comedy based on the YA book series by publisher, Edward Stratemeyer.  It was a companion to the popular Hardy Boys Mysteries series of the day.  The Nancy Drew books were ghostwritten by numerous authors under the pseudonym, Carolyn Keene.

Nancy Drew... Reporter stars Bonita Granville as the titular character who enters the town newspaper's amateur reporter contest, and must clear a girl of Murder charges.  The film series was fairly well-received, and this is just one of several Nancy Drew Mysteries Warner Brothers made during this time.

The character has persisted throughout the decades, and the film series was recently revived to lukewarm reviews and reception.  The Nancy Drew Mysteries movie franchise was also revived in the 1970s, 1990s, and again in 2002 and 2007.
