Movies from comedy to drama to your favorite Hollyweird Star.

The Home B&W Festival


In the wake of the generally appalling rush of CGI comic book heroes, further Star Bores and Hairy Plodder spin off's, over the last three or four months I've been revisiting some of my old favorites, most of which are in glorious B&W:

Seven Samurai
Dr. Strangelove
Throne of Blood
The Third Man
Our Man in Havana
Hobson's Choice
All About Eve
Citizen Kane
The Treasure of the Sierra Madre
Beat the Devil
City Lights
Duck Soup
Kind Hearts and Coronets
To Kill a Mockingbird
Barry Lyndon
Slaughterhouse Five
The Exorcist
Fahrenheit 451
A Clockwork Orange
The Godfather trilogy

- and so much, much more,..

This has been interspersed with a some made for the television machine series:

Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy
Smiley's People
Wolf Hall

Not every one of these is the pinnacle of film-making of course, and it would take many pages to describe the qualities of these, but suffice to say, these have all been a welcome respite from our VR real world and the current hyper blockbuster marketing research-driven movies.
