What’s That Show Again?

Come aboard, we're expecting you.  That was the message sent to virtually every star and two-bit actor from 1977 until 1986.  It might be a neat project to list every guest star from The Love Boat during its run.  However, it would be far easier to identify those who did not appear.  I will probably...

I’m Fairly Alarmed Here

The book Jurassic Park by Michael Crichton was so good, that I still remember the exact place I sat while I read it.  This was some twenty-four years ago and over a weekend visit home from college.  Damn, is it really possible I read it nearly a quarter century ago?  Give me a minute to...

10 From 86

It was slightly less than the best of times, and it was significantly better than the worst of times.  It was...somewhere in there anyway.  This was the summer of 1986.  The soul crushing, gut punch caused by a routine ground ball headed towards a man wearing a "6" on his back had yet to occur....

Okay iTunes, I’ll Be Your Huckleberry

Well, I finally pulled the trigger and bought Tombstone on iTunes.  Do you see what I did there?  I've been itching to watch this movie again for over a year, but just didn't want to pay up.  I've checked again and again for a sale that never happened.  Finally today, I shelled out the full...

Lines Without a Face

Way back when the internet was new and e-mail was still an exciting way to communicate, it was our primary way to share content.  There was no "Insta-Chat" and no "Snap-Face" to keep things viral.  Regular old e-mails were passed to and fro, slowly but steadily.  Now that e-mail is the new snail mail, let's...

Six Degrees of Semination

Sowing the seeds of the Kevin Bacon legend.  Connecting the prolific thespian to any other random actor in fewer than six movies is easy.  Going from Bacon to Bacon in exactly six steps without using Bacon?  That could be tough. Is anyone else getting hungry? While we are at it, Kevin Bacon hasn't been in... Continue Reading →

Polar Express…It’s About Time

To understand my love of the movie Polar Express, you need to know about the first time I watched it.  It happened one Christmas several years back while visiting family in South Carolina.  On the very last day of our stay, time was winding down and the dread of saying goodbye began to seep into...

Actually Love, Love Actually

I really do love this movie.  But, it's not one of the Holiday movies that I watch over and over again.  I honestly don't think I can without getting emotionally drained.  It's the ending that does it to me.  First the characters we've gotten to know in the film come together to hug, kiss and...

Baddest Santas

I think we can all agree that the "baddest" Santa in movie history was Billy Bob in the aptly named Bad Santa.  I mean duh.  But this got me thinking about other bad Santas that have popped up here and there.  I'll get to them in a bit.  Let me take a minute, though to... Continue Reading →
