Howdy Folks! It’s Old Radio time again! In the spirit of Halloween I’m including a couple of Halloween programs from the golden age of radio. I’m going to average two a week and this week I’m going to start with one of the most famous Mercury Theater On The Air’s episodes that isn’t “War Of The World.” It’s Bram Stoker’s “Dracula” featuring Orson Welles. Speaking of Welles, I’m also including the classic Suspense program, “The Hitchhiker” also featuring Welles. Enjoy and feel free to comment below or on my Facebook page! So Sayeth The Kendog!
Howdy Folks! It’s The Kendog with one of the more frustrating movie experiences I’ve had in a while. The movie is called “Hubie Halloween” and is the latest Netflix offering from Adam Sandler and his Happy Madison shingle. After impressing in “Uncut Gems,” Sandler is back to his usual shtick, playing the man-child with irritating vocal inflections, inviting his stock cast to not act so much as mug for the camera, and inundate a potentially sweet story with enough unfunny sight gags and jokes to fill at least three bad films! (Of course it’s number one on the Netflix film list, so what the hell do I know?”Continue reading
Dog’s Movie House: “Welcome To Sudden Death” formulaic but enjoyable action flick featuring the underrated Michael Jai White!
Howdy Folks! It’s The Kendog here with a new film on Netflix featuring a guy who should be a waaay bigger star than he is. The film is called “Welcome To Sudden Death” and the featured actor as Michael Jai White, a talented fellow who, were there any justice in this world, would be near the top of the food chain in Hollywood when it comes to action stars. The film itself is a fairly formulaic affair but has enough slightly off-center performances and decent action to warrant a watch. It also is less than an hour-and-a-half long, which means it doesn’t overstay its welcome. It also features as its biggest asset the cinematic badass known as Michael Jai White!Continue reading
Howdy Folks! It’s The Kendog here with another couple of old time radio programs for your listening pleasure. As a fan of all sorts of entertainment, I have a special place in my heart for the “theater of the mind.” I know it’s hard to believe, but there was a time when television didn’t exist and radio was the entertainment medium of the masses. My grandfather grew up listening the the classic broadcasts and passed that love on to me. When I was about eleven years old he gave me a tape of the “Who’s On First” program from Abbott & Costello and I was absolutely hooked! This wasn’t just the classic routine but the entire program featuring three segments, two musical numbers, and ads from their sponsor Camel Cigarettes. Jack Benny has since supplanted the comic duo as my favorite radio comedian, but Abbott & Costello will always be my first, primarily because those two were able to strengthen the already wonderful bond I had with my grandfather. I’m also throwing in a classic Abbott & Costello program featuring a very funny performance from Dracula himself, Bela Legosi. The three legends are clearly having a ball here as Legosi successfully lampoons his greatest creation. Enjoy the programs and feel free to comment below or at my Facebook page! So Sayeth The Kendog!
Howdy Folks! It’s The Kendog with another couple of old radio classics, this time featuring the legendary Sherlock Holmes. After all, Netflix is releasing the excellent “Enola Holmes” today so why not give you a taste of the classic old radio programs of yesteryear to get you in the mood. Check them out below and feel free to comment either below or on Facebook! So Sayeth The Kendog!
