Christian Nyby or Howard Hawks? In the end, I really don’t care who directed our main feature as this sci-fi epic about a Killer Carrot from Outer Space is a whole six-pack of un-ironic awesomeness and my love for it knows no bounds. Nope, no gut-check or toiling or sweating over the answer when posed a query of ‘What’s your favorite movie of all time?’ No ifs, ands or buts, it’s The Thing from Another World. And with that, we have officially finished migrating all the ads over from the old blog. *whew* Fear not, there’s still lots and lots of new stuff to post for your viewing pleasure so stay tuned. And until then, Boils and Ghouls, keep watching the skies!

FTLOF - Film Noir 01Reduced Size with Titles

This post is part of my rehash and continuation of the For the Love of Film Noir Blogathon originally held back in February of 2011. Thus and so, we will be heading down the rain-soaked streets and neon-drenched back alleys of Noirville again for the entire month of March. And along with all the old material migrating over from the old site, we’ll also be scattering around a lot of new stuff as well. Also of note, we’ll be posting them in chronological order to show how the genre evolved and progressed from the 1940′s through the late ’50s. And as an added bonus, I’ll be posting some vintage adverts to stuff I’ve always associated with the genre — cigarettes, booze and fashionable ladies.
