    Physical Media might not be dead, but Physical Media in Retail Stores are accelerating the death

    I was at Best Buy a few weeks ago to look at cameras. I have not been shopping in over a year, so it was a real shock to me. There were hardly any movies at all. There were hardly any cameras either. In fact, the whole store seemed under stocked. This was the extent of the movies. This...

    RIP the Cinerama Dome, ArcLight and Pacific Cinemas

    Landmark status does not always keep that from happening. The Coral Court Motel on Route 66 in St. Louis was a listed landmark but the area is now a subdivision. Owners can fight for their economic rights. Unless someone can offer them more, and they are willing to sell, protection is not...

    Press Release Warner Archive Press Release: Show Boat (1951) (Blu-ray)

    I think one of the things that I love about Show Boat is that there is NO definitive version. I've seen several stage productions and the movies and every last one has been different.

Boris Karloff - He did a great number of roles and quite a variety. Lew Ayres - He did some great work in the early 30s, particularly All...
