Salutations, fellow inebriates,
I've had a rather busy month, and the past couple of weekends I haven't had a chance to watch a "booze movie," let alone review one. Don't worry. I'll get back in the groove before you know it, and there will be a lot more reviews on the way.
In fact, this past weekend I picked up a number of interesting, alcohol-drenched titles from Yammering Magpie Cinema, while I attended the Hollywood Collector's Show. I've previously reviewed their releases of The Bottom of the Bottle (1956) and The Moonshine War (1970), and the Magpies mentioned that a few of their customers had found their Website through Booze Movies. That included a writer for the San Diego Reader, who wrote about the experience, giving our site a plug. Check out the article if you get a chance.
One last note, the folks at Yammering Magpie Cinema have upgraded their release of The Moonshine War. It is now letterboxed and much better video quality. I've updated my review accordingly.
