Tonight, PBS will be showing part 1 of their 2 part, three and a half hour documentary on one of my favorite all time directors, Woody Allen.  As part of their “American Masters” series this film promises to cover all aspects of the master writer, director and actor that is Woody.

From the PBS site: “This is the Woody doc everybody has been waiting for, and I am delighted that this creative giant is finally assuming his rightful place in the American Masters library,” says Susan Lacy, series creator and executive producer of American Masters.

American Masters – Woody Allen: A Documentary chronicles the trajectory and longevity of Allen’s career: from his work in the 1950s-60s as a TV scribe for Sid Caesar, standup comedian and frequent TV talk show guest, to a writer-director averaging one film-per-year for more than 40 years.

DVD Quick Hits Archive Pt. 2

27 Oct

One of my favorite blogs to write when I wrote for FOH was the DVD quick hits segments.  It allowed me to rattle through several older movies without having to write long drawn out reviews.  I am going to start up my Quick Hits segment here and I am going to kick it off with a grand archive of all the quick hits that I had over at FOH.  Please keep in mind, these reviews are not going to give you the whole scope of the film, more of a guide to films that you should or shouldn’t consider.  This is part 2 of the great archiving and it is only a fraction of the total that I have to update.  I have added an “Essentials” section to the top of the main page to keep track of all the movies that I give.

As I looked through some of my first quick hits I noticed that some of them were really lacking in substance so I decided to edit all of them and revise/expand on most of them to reflect my views more accurately.  Enjoy!
