“YES! I Came Up With That Line!”

Delays, delays–excuses would be mostly that, so I’ll spare you.

The Crazies (1973)

Of George A. Romero’s 16-feature-length filmography, I’ve seen 14 of them and own just as many¹. By 2007, I owned most of those–the exceptions are the then-unreleased (at all!) Diary of the Dead and The Dark Half (thanks, largely, to my overall disinterest in Stephen King). Day of the Dead (in Anchor Bay’s 2-disc “Divimax” format) was […]

“Aye. I Showed That Two-Bit Copycat What-Fer, Didn’t I?”

X-Cutioner’s Song. Is it a simply encapsulated indicator of everything everyone looks back and shakes their had at from the 90s? Maybe.

Breakfast on Pluto (2005)

“If I wasn’t a transvestite terrorist, would you marry me?” I’ve neglected both (extensive) writing about movies and, generally–or, perhaps, specifically, in that I primarily mean my extensive DVD collection–watching them.

“THIS Is Because I’m Not a Cop. Now, If You’re Real Quiet, I’ll Call One, and Tell Him Where to Find You…”

A few lingering titles, a few continuing titles, and some bumped off the list, but here’s my planned back-issue reading for the week: I’m still reading the Giffen/DeMatteis run of Justice Leage [_____], but I’ve passed their first cross-over (“The Teasdale Imperative”), so I guess that’s some achievement or other. The two books are shaping up […]
