Mini-Review - "Mister Roberts" (1955)

I am so glad I decided to watch “The Caine Mutiny” before watching “Mister Roberts,” because that made this experience so hilarious.

Both films take a slightly different approach to a similar story, about a rundown navy ship during World War II, run by a captain that is only out for himself and have gone a bit insane, while the crew is less than thrilled following a crazed-captains’ orders. 516 more words

The Thin Man

In which we are just about to take our first false step

This film is testament to the timelessness of great leads with chemistry.

We’re introduced to Nick Charles (William Powell) as he is at a (classy) bar, teaching the bartenders how to mix drinks: Manhattan to a foxtrot beat, Dry Martini to a waltz.   822 more words
