Dizzy Detectives (1943) – Jules White

I have always enjoyed the Three Stooges shorts. There’s not a time in my memory when they didn’t make me laugh out loud. I can remember Sunday mornings spent watching the marathon on television, or going to the base theatre in Borden to watch collections growing up. So when I saw that they were the…

The 7th Voyage of Sinbad (1958) – Nathan Juran

Setting aside the obvious whitewashing of the cast, The 7th Voyage of Sinbad, the next film in the Dragons & Dinosaurs chapter of DK Canada’s extremely entertaining Monsters in the Movies is a lot of fun. And one that I have a bit of a history with. Growing up we moved around frequently (being in…

Battlestar Galactica (1979) – Take the Celestra & The Hand of God

And just like that, one of the series that helped influence my childhood, and generated my love for pop culture comes to an end… For me, Galactica, and it’s follow-up series, the less than stellar Galctica 1980 (except the one episode The Return of Starbuck) will always be joined in my mind with CFB Borden,…

Remembering When… Raiders of the Lost Ark

Star Wars and Indiana Jones were an inextricable part of my youth. As mentioned in my Star Wars post, prior to ’77 there was nothing that stood out amongst the pop culture landscape, there were fun and cool things, but nothing like the mountain that was the experience of Star Wars, and then, a number…
