  3. What the world needs now is a good Psychotic Babysitter Movie, with a pre-blonde Marilyn Monroe.
  4. But I’ve never been to me…
  5. The voting drama in the House today reminded me I needed to book our annual screening of GROUNDHOG DAY. You think I’m kidding, but I swear I’m not.
  6. When you make a doctor’s appointment because your jaw is swollen but then by the time the appointment comes around you’re feeling perfectly fine. But at least it was all worth it for the sumptuous hol
  7. In 2023 I want all my crab bisque to be served in pig cups.

  18. You think, “THE HOLIDAY isn’t that old — it’s from 2006, right?” Then you notice there’s a pivotal scene in a Blockbuster Video store. And everyone has a flip-phone. Which they seem to use only for ca
  19. The always delightful Erik Rhodes as a would-be tenor named Spaghetti Nadzio. No, they don’t make ‘em like MUSIC FOR MADAME (1937) anymore…
  20. AVATAR: THE WAY OF WATER was not my favorite James Cameron film, but the 3D was some of the very best and most vivid I have ever seen. Not grungy, no ghosting — absolutely perfect. The underwater sequ
