The Dogcast: Some Western Old Radio Fun In Honor Of “Cry Macho!”

Howdy Folks! It’s The Kendog with some classic old radio again. This time it’s a couple of episodes of the popular radio series “Have Gun, Will Travel” starring John Dehner as Paladin, a gun for higher based out of San Francisco. The show was popular enough that it made a successful transition to television. While not as consistently excellent as “Gunsmoke” it’s still a terrific show. Enjoy the two episodes and feel free to comment either below or on my Facebook page. So Sayeth The Kendog!

Have Gun, Will Travel – Brother Lost – 10/1959

Dog’s Movie House: “Cry Macho” A Gentle Modern Western With The One And Only Clint Eastwood!

Howdy Folks! It’s The Kendog here with a look at Clint Eastwood’s latest, a film called “Cry Macho” and, although it’s set during 1979, the film is definitely a western in spirit, with the screen legend actually getting back into the saddle on a few occasions and looking good doing it despite the fact that he’s over ninety years old. The fine performances and very human moments make up for the fact that “Cry Macho” doesn’t have a whole lot of kinetic momentum when it comes to the narrative. That said, while not a classic, “Cry Macho” is a fine adult drama with a terrific performance from an acting legend!

The Dogcast: Some Old Radio Thrills from the Golden Age!

Howdy Folks! It’s The Kendog here with some old radio thrills in the form of “The Whistler” one of the most popular radio progams of the forties and fifties, especially on the West Coast. In quality, it was second only to “Suspense” in terms of thrills and performances. I’ve got a couple for you here that I think you’ll enjoy in honor of the new James Wan horror film “Malignant.” Enjoy and feel free to comment below or on my Facebook Page. So Sayeth The Kendog!

The Whistler – The Urge To Kill – 1942
The Whistler – One Man Jury – 1945

The Trailer Dog Park: “The Matrix Ressurections” features the return of Neo. Also Edgar Wright’s Latest A Time Travelling Horror Show!

Howdy Folks! It’s The Kendog here with a look at two highly anticipated movies. The first is the return to the world of The Matrix with “The Matrix Resurrections” featuring the return of Keanu Reeve’s Neo (who looks a lot like John Wick now). Featuring groundbreaking special effects and a hopefully engaging plot, “The Matrix Resurrections” looks like an entertaining return to the world of virtual reality and high-tech wire-fu. Next we have Edgar Wright’s latest called “The Last Night In Soho,” which is about a woman in this time obsessed with the 1960’s whose fantasy and real world start to collide with increasingly horrific results. Edgar Wright is one of my favorite filmmakers and this looks crazy enough to be a refreshing original horror-noir piece that will stand out for all the right reasons. Enjoy the trailers and feel free to comment below or on my Facebook page. So Sayeth The Kendog!

Dog’s Movie House: “Malignant” interesting but flawed James Wan horror film!

Howdy Folks! It’s The Kendog here with a look at James Wan’s latest horror opus, a film called “Malignant.” The creator of such horror classics like “Saw,” “Insidious,” and “The Conjuring” has come up with an original tale that has a lot to like but takes a little while to get going. The last half hour saves the film from becoming run-of-the-mill, but it morphs from a would-be scary film into a more of an action, science fiction hybrid. The first half of the film is a bit messy and inconsistent and some of the performances are a little, well, off. But taken as a whole, the novel concept and Wan’s filmmaking prowess gives “Malignant” an entertaining jolt at the multiplex.
