Most people would nod solemnly in agreement if I named Stanley Kubrick’s The Shining as one of my top 10 films. This blog is not about the films’ long, sweeping shots or the sound design or the eerie visuals. I’m here to talk about
Matt inspired me with his list of villains. So I decided to rip off his fab idea and do my own! In no particular order: Nicky Holiday – The Great Muppet Caper Sure next to all these other maniacal madmen (and women) Nicky Holiday seems like a l

Entertainment Weekly has finally done something I find entertaining! Check out their list of the top 25 sci-fi movies and shows from the last 25 years. I must say it ain’t bad. Here are a few of my feelings/opinions/observations… cuz I kn
