Following the deadly skirmish with locals, service continued to decline at Mos Eisley Cantina. The wretched hive became even more so when the new management found creative ways to save a few credits.
‘Hey You Guys!’
Hopefully Sloth, The Goonies beefy but lovable misfit monster, will make a return appearance in the alleged Goonies 2 sequel. The last we saw of the Goon Dock adventurers was 30 years ago when they were kids in search of One-eyed Willy’s pirate treasure. It will be interesting to see what adventure awaits them as adults. Imagine the potential […]
Like all things 80s, there was a time when Michael J. Fox was box office gold. I think any success the movie Teen Wolf enjoyed was linked to Fox’s rising celebrity and people’s fascination with monster makeup (e.g. special effects makeup master Rick Baker turned Michael Jackson’s Thriller video into a miniature horror movie – and we watched it). I never […]
The Future is Now
Great Scott! It’s October 21, 2015!
Next month, Daniel Craig will star in his fourth film as James Bond, Spectre. The blond, blue-eyed actor and his 5 foot 10 build raised some concerns with fans over whether or not he ‘fits’ the traditional role of Ian Flemmings’ tall, dark and handsome super spy (how else do you explain sites like ‘danielcraigisnotbond.com‘?).

It’s not difficult to appreciate the winsome innocence that is Forrest Gump. His ongoing accidental celebrity against the backdrop of American history is amusing to watch.
Last night I watched the classic flick, ‘The Hustler’ starring Paul Newman. This 1961 melodrama about a small-time pool shark featured some high-stakes ‘stick’, a tragic love story and a lot of smoking. This movie serves as an interesting back story to Martin Scorcese’s 1986 follow-up ‘The Color of Money’ where a much older and wiser Eddie […]
Fat Guy, Little Coat
Few flicks get me laughing quite like the Spade-Farley classic Tommy Boy.
I couldn’t help but chuckle in 2010 when I saw the trailer advertising ‘the Expendables’. Looks like Stallone took all that pent-up testosterone left over from the 80s to recruit a roster of action-hero poster boys to star in some age-defying feat of heroism. I was admittedly ‘kind of’ intrigued. Last week the second […]
We tried to warn them. Last night, after months of persistent begging, we allowed our two boys to rent the train-wreck that was Indiana Jones and the Crystal Skull. Unbelievably they both felt that it was as bad as we did. At one point my oldest scoffed, “a flying saucer?! C’mon!” My sentiments exactly. As […]
