Howdy Folks! It’s The Kendog here with a remembrance of the original and (to many) best James Bond, Sean Connery who passed last week at the age of 90. Connery was one of the few Bond actors who transcended the reinventing himself every decade before leaving acting for good in 2004 after a frustrating experience on the film “The League Of Extraordinary Gentlemen” (an admittedly uneven film at best.)Continue reading
Howdy Folks! It’s The Kendog back with some more old radio scares in time for Halloween. This week we’re gonna go with a couple of classics from the long running radio drama Suspense. The first is “Flesh Peddler” featuring DeForest Kelley. That’s right: Bones McCoy in a tale about a ventriloquist and his unusual dummy. Next we have “The Body Snatchers” a 1942 tale of grave robbing in England based on a true story. Two great thrillers in time for Halloween. Enjoy and comment either below or at my Facebook page! So Sayeth The Kendog!
Howdy Folks! It’s The Kendog here with some Halloween fun! I know that the whole COVID mess is putting the clamps on some of the normal trick-or-treating rituals of Halloween (Mrs. Kendog and I are abstaining this year), but even if you’re party is a party of a few, you can still enjoy the holiday with some classic horror movies. Now I know that we happen to view several films from our childhood through the fog of nostalgia, but I’ve chosen a few films that still hold up very well today despite the passing of the years. Check’em out below and feel free to comment either on the site or at my Facebook page! So Sayeth The Kendog!Continue reading
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
