Forget About That Corny Corner-Ribbon's Drivel! The Real Secret is HERE Indeed - not over there!

Heads up - heads are rolling at the movies...


I am not quite sure if this is appropriate for either the luminous or lugubrious blogs - but it seems like a perfect excuse to put up my summary selection of "all-time great movies" - so, here it goes, the main event du jour on TLB Prime! And not just a sidebar after-thought...

Moviehead is dead - long live the movieheads?
For the record, "Moviehead" Matt Hawkins hosted the sometimes amusing (if not always hilarious) segment on specialty channel "mpix" (formerly known as... Moviepix.) 329 times over the course of about five years... He had thus the privileged opportunity to poke fun and parody while pseudo-analyzing the merits and flaws -as well as socio-politico-cultural context of- hundreds of classic films, ending with the 1958 BLOB this past Halloween night... That final tear-jerker of an episode can be seen here.
It is worth a laugh or two, so do check it out...
And then come right back here - I'm not done yet!



my frazy music, movies and books!

I always did wonder exactly how many of these great films -in all genres, almost- that you can see the DVD jackets of, above, ol' moviehead really did review after all... I never bothered verifying but some titles are obvious picks - and those are certainly NOT the top three there... The fact is, most of the films I did select are not broadcast on "mpix" (not to be confused, by the way, with that other mpix now...!) - not the majority of my *elite* picks, that is for sure! My selections are not all feature films either, I admit - but those that are, still elude mpix's grasp for the most part... They are the kind of fare that winds up on more artsy channels such as "Bravo!" for some unfathomable reason...

Ah - and I would be remiss if I did not address the typo that I would not correct, for to do so, I would be wrecking havoc with the order in which all of my picks would appear on the slideshow above - and I will not allow the Night of the Living Dead to crack the top five just because I typed in "bejeebers" instead of "bejeevers"... Aye - with "My Frazy", one has to think of these things because they make your LATEST addition the top one... That goes for the latest edit too... Must be following a typical hollywoodian mindset there, I am sure - "you're only as good as your last performance" or something... Anyhow, slang is not my style -normally- and I will rather leave it there as it is - with the typo gently mocking modern lingo, hence...
I wouldn't have done it better if I done it on purpose, I think...!
