Almost Half A Baker’s Dozen Days of Christmas Movies: Day 5 The Bishop’s Wife

The merriest of Christmases to you and yours!  I thought that I would close out this series of admittedly wondrous blog posts with a doozy of a Christmas movie.

Well here we go again into the wondrous wonderful world of wonder that we know as the Christmas holiday movie!  Frankly, after knocking it out of the park with my first holiday film choice and then being forced to retreat into more conventional holiday fare with my second, I don’t know which way to turn.  Sure, I …

Regarding Recycled Redundant Reimagined Rebooted Remakes or A Look Back On Why In The Name Of Ra Would You Start Your Universe With The Mummy?

Boy, remember those halcyon days when Marvel Studios managed to pull off so much in a relatively short while?  They had it down to an artform which resulted in a globally successful shared movie universe with a heretofore unheard-of consistency.  Sure, there were some slight missteps along the way, but you must put your hat on …
