Can’t quite put my finger on it. I am sure you have heard this quote: “Those who can, do. Those who can’t, teach.” – George Bernard Shaw, Man and Superman. Up until five minutes ago, I knew nothing about Shaw, nor that he was the scribe behind that idiom. Now I know Shaw wrote that […]

After reviewing 3 of the funniest movies ever made, I thought I would review a movie about ancient history. Yeah, I wish; Things may be better, but the racism is alive and well in this country. Mississippi Burning is about as far from humor as you get, especially for people of color who had the […]

O.K., what in the heck is going on here? Since the prospect of seeing a new movie at the theater now seems hopeless, I’m on a mission to seek the Holy Grail of all movies. Besides, I’d rather re-watch a favorite movie a dozen times, than watch a new stink-bomb like 365 Days. Now, Airplane! […]

Airplane! is surely (don’t call me that!) one of the greatest works of movie comedy ever made. From the beginning announcement of the “Red Zone and White Zone” overhead proclamations to the ending disembarkation off of the traumatized plane, every scene and every line is hilarious. “Give me Ham on 5 and hold the Mayo” […]

One hour 21 minutes, R for copious fountains of blood Fair Value of Army of Darkness: $20.00. If you asked me to name a film that was the perfect embodiment of the charm of midnight movies, it would be Army of Darkness. Perfectly fun, endlessly quotable, and never dull. More cheesy goodness than a Wisconsin […]
