Aliens is 35 and the header

Aliens remains a masterpiece and James Cameron’s best movie with a real budget. The Terminator is his best with limited money, making it a semi-Indie flick. After these two, I’m not really sold on the remainder because they’re more “Wow! What effects!” which is Titanic; it … Continue reading

RIP: Clarence Williams III & Ned Beatty

These gentlemen were staples on both screens in the Seventies. Clarence got his start in the Sixties with the groundbreaking cop show The Mod Squad on ABC. Three undercover officers who were young enough looking to infiltrate evil gangs of Hippies … Continue reading

Holiday greetings from the South Pole!

Oddly, when I sent those guys at the Antarctica Research Center, their card never arrived according to USPS. Maybe I’ll have better luck next year.

RIP Wilford Brimley

Mostly famous for plugging Quaker Oats in the Eighties, Wilford is remembered best as being the scientist in The Thing who knew how dangerous the doppelgänger monster was. After the John Carpenter remake, I would have to go with Cocoon, the light-hearted … Continue reading

RIP John Saxon (neé Carmine Orrico)

My generation knows him mainly for being B-Movie royalty in such hits as Nightmare on Elm Street, Black Christmas and Battle Beyond Stars. But John was much, much more than that. He originally started out in more mainstream movies in the Fifties with … Continue reading

Kingdom: two seasons

When I thought nothing more could be done with the Zombie trope, this joint Netflix-Korean production proved me wrong. The zombies are more like ghouls since they can run and you must watch the series through its first two seasons … Continue reading

Welcome May and this month’s header

Onward to what will probably be our second full month of being in the Pandemic Shirt Storm so what better Header is there than a Horror movie! May 2020 is also the 40th anniversary of the Friday the 13th series. Now … Continue reading

A Quiet Place

A Horror movie with a new twist I was willing to investigate. Quiet receiving a sequel wasn’t a surprise though, about half of all new Horror franchises do well enough to get another: Happy Death Day, SAW, Candyman, etc. I think Quiet earned … Continue reading

At least they didn’t come from China

Given the incompetence of this administration, I wouldn’t be surprised if they thought this was a real offer nor would they get the reference.

The Invisible Man (2020): Worth Seeing

Another reason why I’m glad Universal’s Dark Universe (aka, “re-imagining” their monster properties) crashed harder than Windows CE. Their 1999 take on The Mummy was still good. It didn’t need Tom Cruise repeating his Mission: Impossible crap and then meeting Mr. Hyde to set … Continue reading

Netflix “cancels” MST3K

Sigh. Some days I can never figure out what Netflix’s logic is when they give up on good shows like this while cardboard drama House of Cards required Kevin Spacey’s pervy history to bring that to an end. I will just … Continue reading

Gotta’ shoot ’em all?

Now I would watch that show and play the annoying iOS game!

The Bride!

There’s an old grade-school joke regarding the Bride of Frankenstein (which I guess was supposed to be the monster’s bride). Ready? Why did the Bride freak out when she saw the monster for the first time? Because his nuts were … Continue reading

Halloween 2019: the LEGO® avatars and guests!

I went with Where’s My Pants‽ Guy. Co-Worker/Friend Holly is Elvira. This year’s guests are a couple bootlegs I scored this Summer: Spider-Ham and The Mask. Then there’s a possessed waitress from LEGO’s new The Hidden Side sets and Captain Phasma … Continue reading
