Good memories…

I rewatched John Carpenter’s “The Thing” the other night and it brought back some good memories that I thought I’d share with you, the gentle reader. You see, back in 1982 when I was a wee lad, my father dropped off my brother and I at the local cineplex theater in order to see a [...]

Have you seen this movie?

When I was living with my dad in Mpls back in the early 90′s we used to rent crappy videos from the local drugstore. (Yes, renting VHS tapes…man do I feel old). Anyway, I remember we came across this ‘bottom rack’ video that had a really murky cover and I think the title was “Things”. [...]

Mr. B.I.G.

I started a review of “Empire of the Ants” the other day (no promises when it will be done) and as much crap as I’ve given Bert I. Gordon on this site, you gotta hand it to the guy, he’s alive and kicking at age 80+, and still out there producing movies. So I thought [...]
