June 2013 Highlights

Here are some highlights for all things film-related in the month of June.



Much Ado About Nothing – looking forward to a Whedon treatment of one of my favorite plays written by The Bard.



Man of Steel – like I said previously this is one that I have come to anticipate.






Starring Eleanor Parker – known to me first as the “would be stepmom” to the Von Trapp children, I was happy to know that she has had a long and varied career that includes several films that I rank very highly. Here are a few of my picks for must-see TV:

  • Caged (1950) June 10th @ 8:00PM
  • The Woman in White (1948) June, 11 2013 at 09:30 AM
  • Detective Story (1951) June, 24 2013 at 08:00 PM
  • The Oscar (1966) June, 25 2013 at 09:45 AM – by all accounts a film so bad it might just be good.
  • The Man With the Golden Arm (1955) June, 24 2013 at 01:45 AM


Friday Night Spotlight: Noir Writers Really I could watch all of them but I will just list a few of particular interest to me.

  • The Maltese Falcon (1931) The first cinematic effort to bring Dashiell Hammett’s Sam Spade to the silver screen. (June 7th)
  • After the Thin Man (1936) (June 7th)
  • The Glass Key (1942) (June 7th)
  • They Won’t Believe Me (1947) (June 21st)
  • Murder My Sweet (1944) (June 28th)

Not sure when it will go live, but later this month I will be recording a podcast with The LAMB. Stay tuned for details.



Let me know what you are most looking forward to in the Comments section below.



  1. Ooooh, a podcast with The LAMB. Cool.

  2. I think you very well know which one I’m mostly anticipating (only a week away for me, yay!!!) Curious about Much Ado About Nothing too, hope there’ll be a press screening for that.

  3. I must admit that the The Man of Steel is building up like a crescendo for me. I will now likely go see it the first weekend. I have been fighting a superhero flick battle of the bulge of late, and wanted to pass on this one or at least wait until I heard from folks like you/other family/friends before I dove in. But the more I see from the trailer(s), the more excited I get. At has to be better than the spotty Iron Man 3, right? 🙂

    I still haven’t seen Star Trek. As good as the first one was, and as good as this second entry appears to be, I have NEVER gone crazy over the series and it’s successors. I was a Star Wars baby, so I always held Star Trek at arm’s length. Not because it’s lacking in any way, just a proclivity of mine. That stated, I will be getting this on Blu-Ray for Christmas. 🙂

    And last but not least, 42 will be a Blu-Ray purchase because of everything you said….enough said. 🙂

  4. Man of Steel is the one I can’t wait for. Hopefully my high expectations won’t self-destruct my appreciation of it.
