Almost Half A Baker’s Dozen Days of Christmas Movies: Day 3 How The Grinch Stole Christmas!

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 …

Through The Decades With Dear Boris: The Raven (1963)

As we come screaming into All Hallows Eve, allow me to wish you and yours the very best of the season!  May the weather favor your trick-or-treating or, if you have/are weak-in-the-knees parents, your trunk-or-treating.  (Insert my sad eyeroll here.)  Which reminds me: Parental Trick-Or-Treating ProTip #4: To allay any fears regarding wackos placing poisonous razor-bladed lightbulbs in the children’s …

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 …
