Action News anchor Jim Gardner dials back schedule, prepares for retirement

If you’re from the Philadelphia area, then you know that Jim Gardner is synonymous with TV news. For many, Jim has been the only anchor they’ve ever watched. Jim is more than a news anchor, he’s local royalty, he’s a legend, he’s family. While we’re saddened to know that an era is coming to a close, we’ll certainly enjoy this last hurrah!

Congratulations on this next chapter and thank you for your dedication and service to Philadelphia and the greater Delaware Valley! Thanks, Jim!

Jim Gardner announced he is dialing back his schedule with Action News and plans to retire at the end of 2022 after more than four decades in broadcast.

Today we honor the men and women have served our armed forces. Thank you for dedication and service.

Mario’s Musings (Birthday/Anniversary Edition): Aliens

It’s been a while since we’ve had a post from Mario regarding some of his favorite films, and he’s reposting this review just in time for Sigourney Weaver’s birthday and the 35th anniversary of the release of Aliens (back on July 18th, but we’ll forgive his tardiness over his excitement to write about the 40th anniversary of Raiders of the Lost Ark).

“I say we take off and nuke the entire site from orbit. It’s the only way to be sure.” That line is one of the many that earned the birthday girl, Sigourney Weaver, an Oscar Nomination for Best Actress in 1987 for her second outing as Ellen Ripley in Aliens. She celebrated her birthday yesterd...

First-of-its-kind esports room opens in West Philly

An amazing idea that can really leave a positive impact on young minds!

Whether it’s game design or computer programming, video games have served as a gateway into tech for many professionals. It’s good to see great things happening in Philly!

Philadelphia Parks and Rec opened its first esports room to give more young people access to expensive gaming equipment and spark their interest in tech careers.

Twenty years ago the world, as we knew it, changed forever. We will never forget the events of this humbling day. We will never forget how heroes arose from the literal ashes to protect and save complete strangers. We’ll never forget how we came together and stood up for neighbors. We’ll never forget the unity and patriotism that followed. We’ll never forget that, for a brief moment, we put our differences aside and came together as one nation that was truly indivisible. #september11th #unitedwestand #neverforget

Elaine May: A Woman Scorned But Not Defeated

Elaine May is a perfect example of how strength and perseverance can overcome the biggest obstacles; even when an entire industry may seem like it’s against you!

This week’s director spotlight falls on someone who you may not hear about often but who has shaped what you find funny: Elaine May. She had an unbelievably successful career as one half of the legendary comedy duo Nichols & May. Like her partner, Mike Nichols, Elaine would go on to become a

Agnes Varda: Compassion & Commentary on Film

Agnes Varda didn’t just leave her mark in The French New Wave, she blazed the trail for women in film well into the next century!

https://bhpictures.com/news/2021/7/28/agnes-varda-compassion-amp-commentary-on-film

Agnes Varda is arguably the most important director to come out of the French New Wave even if her name is often overshadowed by Godard, Truffaut, or even her own husband, Jacques Demy. She brought documentary experimentalism, social commentary, and compassionate care for her characters. Commonly re

Barbra Streisand: From Actress to Director

When you think of the name Barbara Streisand what comes to mind? Her acting career? Her singing career? Her incredibly surprising role in Meet the Fockers? A lot of folks don’t realize that she is also a very accomplished director.

In this week’s Women in Film, we spotlight Streisand’s directorial career!

When most people think of Barbra Streisand, they think of her illustrious acting career in movies like Funny Girl or The Way We Were. You might also think about her singing career which has spanned over 50 years, but what most people seem to forget is that Barbra Streisand is an incredibly accom

Mario’s Musings (Anniversary Edition): Captain America: The First Avenger

It’s been ten years since the Star-Spangled Man with a Plan graced the big screen to set up what would eventually become the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s big screen team up of the Avengers. Let’s go back and see how a sickly kid from Brooklyn became a symbol of America.

The 90s feel like five years ago to someone like me. There are so many events over the course of the 2000s and 2010s that I remember like they were yesterday. So when you tell me that a movie like the first Captain America is turning ten years old, it blows my mind.

Mario’s Musings (Birthday Edition): Harrison Ford

From the original Star Wars to the upcoming fifth Indiana Jones movie, Harrison Ford has been a constant presence in Hollywood for the past 40 years. Today is his 79th birthday, and our resident reviewer, a self-admitted fanboy, looks back at some of Ford’s movies he somehow missed over the years. Happy Birthday, Harrison Ford!

It’s the Greatest of all Time’s birthday today, so everyone take a shot of your favorite beverage, sit back, and let’s reminisce about some Harrison Ford’s movies.

Mario's Musings (Anniversary Edition): Terminator 2: Judgement Day

Terminator 2 released in theaters 30 year ago this past Saturday, where director James Cameron once again raised the bar when it comes to sequels. Our resident reviewer takes a look at a movie he first saw on the big screen when he was only six years old.

It’s been thirty years since Terminator 2? It feels like only yesterday we had a 35th anniversary post about the original Terminator.

Our birth as a nation was marked — officially — in 1776, but that was merely the beginning. Since then, our nation has evolved, grown, and endured through tremendous challenges. Challenges that we’ve been able to overcome because of the bravery and strength h of few, that impacted the lives of many.

Our country is still growing... learning, building and evolving. Our greatness comes, not from the tales of the past, but from the hopes of our future. A future made possible by each new generation of American that is willing to take over where the previous one left off; improve upon the foundations of their predecessors, while dismantling and rebuilding the failures of bygone generations.

Today we not only celebrate the foundation of the United States of America, we celebrate its future! Let each new generation take the charge and continue to carry our flag forward, ensuring that everyone can enjoy life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness!

Happy Independence Day, from all of us at BoatHouse Pictures!

Mario’s Musings (Anniversary Edition): Raiders of the Lost Ark

Since the start of Mario’s Musings, our resident reviewer has been waiting for the 40th anniversary to post a review of quite possibly his favorite movie of all time. Dive in to see the origins of how he first saw the movie, how he got his first VHS copy, and what this movie really means to him.

Anyone who knows me knows what Indiana Jones means to me. Some of my earliest memories involve sitting down in front of the television to watch Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade. I’ve constantly joked that Harrison Ford is the greatest living actor of all time, only one Best Actor Oscar nominatio...

The Handmaid’s Tale: A Glimpse Into The Reality We Live In

The Handmaid’s Tale kicked off its 4th season this week. As we re-enter the world of Gilead, it’s hard not to draw parallels ro our own reality.

https://bhpictures.com/news/2021/4/29/70x4fn865t0k93stvy2qjbkcmyi24o

At the time Margaret Atwood’s novel about a dystopian future was published, it seemed as though the world depicted in The Handmaid’s Tale was simply a grim look at an alternate reality. “This is what might occur if ‘the wrong people’ take over; fortunately we don’t have to worry about it...

Mare of Easttown: Official Trailer | HBO

Don’t forget, Mare of Easttown premiers tomorrow (Sunday April 18th) on HBO!

Mare of Easttown was shot locally (in Philadelphia) and brought a lot of business to local trade workers, stores and vendors in the greater Philadelphia area. I also employed many local film workers — including some of our own crew — while production was in town. We hope the success of this series will mean more work coming to the area.

Tune in and watch this awesome series and help bring more film and television work to Philly!

MARE OF EASTTOWN Trailer (2021) Kate Winslet, Evan Peters, Guy Pearce Series

Check out this new limited series coming to HBO and HBO Max with some local ties!

In Fall of 2019, Mare of Easttown began filing locally in the Greater Philadelphia area. The series is set in a local PA town where a small town detective, played by Kate Winslet, must uncover a mystery that has been haunting the town while balancing her own struggles.

This series really embraced its Southeastern PA setting as it was shot locally, and bringing work to a lot of local film workers, union laborers, and businesses. We were thrilled to have some of our own team members join the team this past Fall when production picked back after the COVID-19 pandemic caused production to shut down in Spring of 2020.

Once the series comes out, you know we’ll have our resident reviewer share his thoughts on it, but for now, enjoy the trailer!
