37 Movie Blitz: Days 18-19

  Birthday boy pick, one of my favorite films ever, completely mad, doomed to fail due to being smothered by NUMEROUS blockbusters the year it came out (Batman, Lethal Weapon 2, Indiana Jones and The Last Crusade, Honey, I Shrunk...

37 Movie Blitz: Days 16-17

  Idiocracy meets American Psycho but falls apart 30 minutes into the flick. This was highly disappointing to me as the films first half hour is genius and then the flick degrades into pointless excessive violence and murder. For a...

37 Movie Blitz: Day 15

Yes Day 15 was a crusher with four very different films screened. Good thing I didn’t have a lemon in the bunch but there was a minor hiccup involving Hamlet (I’ll explain when we get there). Blancanieves is the first silent...

The 37 Movie Blitz: Opening Salvo!

The 37 Movie Blitz

Hey Geeks, A week or so Gaumer asked via the O.G. Facebook page for recommendations for films for a project I’m working on. Specifically I wanted to do something fun for my 37th birthday in June and thought “37? In...

Goodbye Egon.

Goodbye Egon.

I cannot say it any better than Gaumer when we briefly exchanged thoughts on this. “This one fucking hurts.” We lost a comedic legend today. A man who’s body of work has and will keep inspiring people for decades to...
