Greetings, folks! Apologies for just now getting a post up here this week. It’s been a surprisingly busy last few days! But I’m back today with another guest review for my Resolutions series. In fact, I’m back with someone who was just here last week to discuss We Need to Talk about Kevin (which you can read here). Continue reading

Resolutions 2016: We Need to Talk About Kevin

TGIF, amigos! Well, we survived another week–although survival may be a little tougher for some of us in the Midwest/along the East Coast right now. How many of you are buried under several inches and/or feet of snow right now? As I type this, I’m currently awaiting the arrival of a little blizzard myself. Continue reading

Meathead March – Stand By Me (1986) – Silver Screen Serenade

It’s reblog time! MovieRob is running a blogathon dedicated to the films of Mr. Rob Reiner and I couldn’t resist partaking! In order to please a certain someone (I’m lookin’ at you, Mutant!), I decided to watch and review Stand by Me. Go and have a read!

“I never had any friends later on like the ones I had when I was twelve. Jesus, does anyone?” – The Writer


Number of Times Seen – 1 (21 Feb 2015)

Brief Synopsis – “After the death of a friend, a writer recounts a boyhood journey to find the body of a missing boy.” (from IMDb)

My Take On It – Per usual, I’d just like to take a minute to thank Rob for another great idea here. I hadn’t realized Rob Reiner had so many awesome films in his wheelhouse! I’m really looking forward to all these reviews! But I knew right away what I was going to tackle—mostly because Table 9 Mutant was never going to leave me alone…

007 December – Dr. No (1962) – Silver Screen Serenade

MovieRob is having a Bond blogathon! How could I possibly resist writing a little something? 🙂 My choice? The first official Bond film: Dr. No! Check out my take on and–and while you’re over there, check out Rob’s, Luke’s, and Tom’s reviews, too!

“World domination. The same old dream. Our asylums are full of people who think they’re Naploeon. Or God.” – James Bond


Number of Times Seen – 1 (16 Nov 2014)

Brief Synopsis – “A suave and skilled government agent named James Bond looks for answers about a missing colleague and the disruption of the American space program.” (from IMDb)

My Take On It – First of all, thumbs up to Rob for deciding to tackle all the Bond films! What a fun idea! I’m a huge fan of the Daniel Craig Bond films—well, at list two out of three of them (I don’t love Quantum of Solace)—but until recently, I had never seen any of the other Bonds. Well, now…
