Going My Way (1944)

Today, we may prefer 1944 releases like Double Indemnity, Meet Me in St. Louis or To Have and Have Not, but during WWII, audiences really responded to Leo McCarey's gooey, warm, comfortable Going My Way. It showed a world in which faith still existed, and in which a smile, a wink, a little humor, and a small miracle could preserve a way of life. The movie received ten Oscar nominations and won seven of those. Part of the reason for one of the losses was that Barry Fitzgerald was nominated twice, in both the leading and supporting categories. (He won for supporting, while star Bing Crosby won in the lead category.) read more...

Pocketful of Miracles (1961)

Frank Capra's final feature film was a remake of his own Lady for a Day (1933), based on a story by Damon Runyon, though this one runs nearly a full hour longer, filling out the story and slowing the pace. Capra himself reportedly hated it, but it's not bad. It's set at Christmastime, and though there are few overt references to the holiday, there are decorations and a general background atmosphere that makes it kind of a holiday classic in its own right. read more...

50/50 (2011)

In the old days, people used to cry at movies about doomed relationships. Now they cry at other things, among them cancer movies. Just about every year, we get at least one or two cancer movies. Just last week there was Tom Tykwer's 3, and before that, One Day, Beginners, In a Better World, Biutiful, My Sister's Keeper, Elegy, and more. Sometimes cancer is a subplot, designed to give the movie some emotional and heft, and other times it's the main subject. But rarely has anyone tried to stuff cancer into a comedy-drama, and one somehow remains prickly and funny through every moment of its running time. read more...

The Intern (2015)

For a movie that's supposedly about life experience, The Intern shows very little. Writer/director Nancy Meyers seems to love her characters, seventy year-old "senior intern" at a startup internet fashion company Ben Whittaker (Robert De Niro), and the "difficult" yet adorable owner/boss of that company, Jules Ostin (Anne Hathaway). Meyers puts them through very human situations and struggles, and sometimes manages to ask questions about current feminist values. Throughout, both De Niro and Hathaway give everything they can, she breaking hearts and he as likable as possible given that his character is more or less perfect. ("You always say the right thing," a character says.) read more...

The Kid (1921)

Charlie Chaplin's first feature film, running six reels (about 50 minutes), was instantly hailed as a masterpiece. It still is, though Chaplin's longer works The Gold Rush, City Lights and Modern Times tend to overshadow it today. The very simple plot has the Little Tramp rescuing a baby on a doorstep (deciding to keep it to avoid attracting the attention of a nosy cop) and raising him for five years. At that point, officials attempt to take the child away. read more...
