Welcome to this week’s podcast!

SPOILER ALERT: This podcast contains some mild spoilers for Avengers: Endgame. I’ve got a spoiler-free review on the blog. Proceed at your own risk.

New in Theaters

The big show in town this weekend is Avengers: Endgame (Marvel Studios). I was able to see the film earlier this week and I share some thoughts about it on the podcast (and see the spoiler alert above).

Classic Cinema Corner

The latest TCM Essentials film was the Civil War epic Gone with the Wind (1939). I recorded it on my DVR while I was at the TCM Classic Film Festival and watched it during a couple of sessions this week (given the film’s four-hour run time). Can you believe that the film is still the all-time box office champ (adjusted for inflation, of course)?

  • Dumbo (Here’s a link to my written review)
  • Shazam! (Here’s a link to the opening theme from the 1974-76 CBS television show; and it’s interesting how “Shazam” the super hero used to be known as “Captain Marvel”–more details about that here)

Classic Cinema Corner

Loved seeing To Kill a Mockingbird (1962) on the big screen, this month’s entry in the Turner Classic Movies (TCM) Big Screen Classics series. It also was this week’s selection in my TCM Essentials quest.

The Criterion Channel launches on April 8! It’s not too late to sign up for a charter membership and enjoy their “Movie of the Week” via your browser on your computer or smartphone. Last week’s “Movie of the Week” was the classic film noir Detour (1945). This week’s film is the bonkers Czechoslovak film The Fabulous Baron Munchausen (1962).

  • Casablanca in Concert with the great Utah Symphony was amazing. It was also a wonderful way to knock another film off of my TCM Essentials list. (FYI, the Utah Symphony is doing Star Wars: Episode IV – A New Hope in Concert this May.) Look for this type of experience with your local symphony!
  • A tribute to 20th Century Fox is happening at this year’s Turner Classic Movies (TCM) Classic Film Festival. Additional 35mm nitrate screenings have been announced for the festival as well.
