I'm a volunteer for the Denver Film Society, currently on the Fourth Friday of every month, so I get to see a lot of movies there.

Favorite Movie So Far This Year

Submitted by Tom H on Sat, 06/07/2014 - 12:16

Recently I saw Under the Skin at the Sie Film Center.

I really enjoyed this movie! I caught most of it after tearing tickets during one of my fourth Friday shifts. When I asked a couple of Film Center regulars whether they had seen it, they said that yes, they had seen it four times so far, and were planning to see it again! As you might imagine, this piqued my interest.

Film Noir Class 2: Double Indemnity, Starring Fred MacMurray and Barbara Stanwyck

In the second Film Noir Class at the Sie Film Center we saw Double Indemnity, directed by Billy Wilder in 1944, and starring Fred MacMurray and Barbara Stanwyck.

A classic noir film, I had seen this one before, but it was great to see it on the big screen. One thing the teacher pointed out was that Fred MacMurray was wearing a wedding ring, even though he was playing a character who was single.

Mile Hi Sci Fi

Based on very minimal research, I believe Mile Hi Sci Fi might well be one of Denver's best-kept secrets.

I volunteer for the Denver Film Society at the Sie Film Center on fourth Fridays, which often coincides with the Mile Hi Sci Fi night that falls on the last Friday of the month.

It took a while for me to figure out that this not really a film, but rather a live comedy act that has a science fiction going on in the background.

My Favorite Movie of All Time

Submitted by Tom H on Mon, 02/10/2014 - 00:42

My favorite movie of all time is The Big Sleep, based on the book by Raymond Chandler. Of course I am talking about the version from 1946, which stars Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall!

"You're not very tall, are you?" asks Carmen Sternwood, near the beginning of the movie. That is one of several incredible quotes from the book and the movie!
