New Blog Post ajroach42.com/cataloging-the-p

This is a big ol' list of the public domain movies I watched this year, with links and short reviews or descriptions.

If you find it useful, I'd love to know.

If you have questions, or comments, this is the place for them.

If you notice problems, I accept PRs (on github, at the moment, but we'll fix that eventually.)

This was fun to put together, and it covers every (public domain) movie I watched on the big screen at home this year.

It doesn't include the stuff I watched on my palm pilot, the movies we watched while we were in GA, or the stuff that I just streamed, which amounts to another 30-40 flicks or so.

I'll probably write those up tomorrow, and follow that up with a TV writeup one day next week.

This doesn't even begin to cover all the available PD material (or even all the PD material in my library!) but it approximates a good introduction, and a solid year's worth of entertainment.

Alright. Starting my second list of 2019 public domain movies consumption now.

I'll do it the same way as the last one (cw'd posts here, followed by a blog post.)

Hold on to your butts.

@ajroach42 The bit in /The General/ with the cannon on the train is action comedy at a level that film has perhaps never surpassed.

@bstacey @ajroach42 I know Keaton isn't exactly unknown, but he was god damn brilliant and deserves significantly more recognition. Gags so good they're still being copied 100 years later. Incredible effects work. Writer, director, actor, stuntman -- he did it all, and did it better than most can do any single one of those things.
