It’s For The Same Basic Reason That I Didn’t Go Into Acting

October 27, 2021

While I’ve seen The Rocky Horror Picture Show several times, I’ve never dressed up in costume to watch it because I’d like to go as Rocky, but I’m better suited to being Riff Raff.

So I Was Wrong Then

July 7, 2021

Blazing Saddles is one of my all-time favorite movies for reasons I don’t feel I need to go into, but I’ve long felt the ending fell a little flat after the fourth wall shatter and the fight spilling into the movie studio. While that part was fun, I never really thought it was necessary.

Baby, NO!

One of my guilty pleasures in life is watching “react” videos on YouTube, and I snicker every time I see some innocent summer child announce that today, knowing absolutely nothing about what they are about to watch, they are going to watch The Thing or Alien.

You know your day is off to an odd start when you’re pointed to a clip from a movie where an aquatic zombie rips off a girl’s swimsuit right before the zombie fights a shark.

And If He Wants To Do Yet ANOTHER Sequel, I’d Still Be Okay With It

Can I just say that Michael Gross‘s enthusiasm for the Tremors franchise even into 2020 makes me incredibly happy.

I Even Do The Accent

What I almost always say:  It’s true we can’t discount that possibility until we have more data.

What I am all too often thinking while I say it:  It’s NOT a tumor!

“The Mayor Of Shark City”

Do you ever get the feeling that too many of the current crop of politicians left the movie Jaws with the wrong takeaway message about how a politician should handle a crisis?

Willy Wonka:  I know a worse one.
