Review: The Other Lamb

— by RON WILKINSON — The opening scenes of the concubine-like quarters of the 15 or so women under the control of Shepherd tell the whole story.

CBS Resurrecting Sunday Night Movies to Fill in For Shortened TV Seasons

Back in the old days, long before streaming, and even before home video as we know it today, networks aired movies. NBC had NBC’s Saturday Night at the Movies, and both ABC and CBS had the Sunday Night Movie. Well, as the saying goes, everything old is new again, and as CBS finds itself facing a drop-off in programming due to coronavirus delays, they’re bringing back the Sunday Night Movie. Starting in May, CBS will be airing titles like Raiders of the Lost Ark and Titanic on Sunday nights. ...

‘The Night of the Hunter’ Remake in Development at Universal From ‘Operation Finale’ Writer

In 1955, Oscar-winning actor Charles Laughton, who appeared in films like Witness for the Prosecution, Mutiny on the Bounty, and Spartacus, stepped behind the camera as a director for the first and only time.

Netflix Will Allow Parents to Filter, Remove Movies and Shows From Kids’ Profiles

With kids quarantined inside with nothing to do but stream movies and shows for the foreseeable future, parents are naturally going to get stricter with what they can and can’t watch.
