From the List of Shame Files: The X-Files

It’s impossible to watch everything. Every choice is a way of curating the massive amount of film and television available to us on a whim. So to stay with a TV show for many seasons, it [...]

From the List of Shame Files: The Fugitive

I’ve always managed to find an excuse not to watch The Fugitive. Mostly it just felt like I’d seen it before. I’m familiar with the one-armed man. I know that Harrison Ford jumps from the dam [...]

From the List of Shame Files: Doctor Zhivago

Last week, the Bryn Mawr Film Institute had a screening of the new 4K remaster of David Lean’s 1965 film adaptation of Doctor Zhivago. It’s a film that’s been nagging at my List of Shame for some [...]

From the List of Shame Files: Fargo

From the List of Shame Files: Poltergeist

When deciding on a horror film for my List of Shame, I naturally devised a list. This list contained a lot of old B-horror films from the 80s and 90s. Hiding amongst these bad horror films [...]
