Starting this week over at the Cinema Recall Podcast over on the site That Moment In .Com I am starting up a new podcast series called Terror Tuesdays. Each week I will be checking out a horror or a suspense flick that not many people have seen before. First episode is about May (2002). This is the one starring Angela Bettis who learns the best way to get a friend is to make one.

I have just been to see Blade Runner 2049. I’m pleased to report it doesn’t disappoint. However, I don’t want to write about it, I think the less you know about the plot going in the better. I knew nothing other than what’s in the trailer. Instead I am going to talk about the film […]

Folks. I hate to say it , but my time with writing posts on this here site is going to be very limited. The only reason why I am writing up anything today is because I have a day off before I start work again. Cinema Recall and Film Pasture Podcasts take up most of my free time, and I really don’t want to spend extra time writing up reviews. I will still try my best to write comments and share your articles and reviews as best as I can, and my sincerest apologies if it takes me a while to respond to your comments. Here are a few more movies I saw. Continue reading

Hello folks , The Vern here with another collection of films and at least one TV series I watched. I was busy being a guest on various podcasts and I will share those with you later in this post. Since I am hosting two sometimes three podcasts. I don’t have a lot of time to write up as many long reviews of movies as I would like. I need to do more with my All Time Classics and Criterion Corner, but damn it. Some nights I just want to watch a movie and not have to analyze or review it. But I do like sharing you some quick thoughts about movies I have seen. So here we go. Continue reading

Movies have always been a huge part of my life ever since I was a small child. Both of my parents were involved in the entertainment industry in one way or the other. My mother taught English and directed plays, while my father owned a record store(Yes with actual LP’s) and was a vice president of a company that distributed DVDs and VHS to stores. It was inevitable that I would catch this sort of love early on. In this article, I want to just mention some of the titles that have had a lasting impression on me when I saw them at the cinemas. These are among the greatest cinematic experiences of The Vern.

I’m going to keep this post short, but I do hope you can help me out. I’m submitting Director Anna Biller’s ode to classic cinema The Love Witch as Movie of the Month over at The LAMB aka The Large Association of Movie Blogs for October. I really wish that more people had the chance to see this, because this film is really astounding.

I love getting emails from filmmakers and producers who want me to review their feature length films and or short presentations. It’s very humbling to know that they respect what I do enough to have me see their finished projects. Making any form of entertainment is not easy. I spent one night editing a podcast for 6 hours straight, and that was just audio editing.
The only real problem I have and it’s no fault of the filmmakers is time. When I get home from work, I am tired and I don’t want to watch something where I have to pay attention. These filmmakers have worked hard on these shorts, and I want to respect them by watching it without any distractions. So here we go with my thoughts on these short films. Continue reading

Damn damn damn, does it feel like a long time has passed since I wrote one of these recaps. I started working back at my job again which doesn’t leave me a whole lot of time to write reviews like I want or even see as many movies I would like. I also have been hosting and editing episodes of Film Pasture and Cinema Recall podcasts and many of those have taken up a lot of my time too. Here are a few movies I have watched so far Continue reading
