Because even these guys love their nerdy movie props.

Happy Friday, party people! And regular people, too, I suppose. 😉 Confession time: today’s post is not an idea I came up with myself. A lovely gentleman by the name of Ryan Stills contacted me in the hopes that I might think about some of my favorite movie props in order to help out his place of employment, Invaluable.com.

Bromance

Happy Friday, you lovely people! Most of the movies out right now kinda suck, and there’s still next to nothing on TV, so let’s spend today talking about a special kind of relationship that I quite enjoy witnessing: the bromance.

…No. That’s a lie. But I did watch a lot of freaking horror movies for Spook Series–79 of them, if I did my math correctly. But I was looking at my lists a while back and I thought it would be cool to do something I intended to do yesterday, but didn’t: create a master list. Like, I have all these different movies, but when it gets down to it, what are the ones you really need to watch? Continue reading

It’s the summer of apocalyptic comedies! At least if the world is coming to an end, we’ll go out laughing about it. Ever since I first heard about The World’s End, I’ve been pretty excited to see it. It’s the third film bringing together Edgar Wright (director/writer), Simon Pegg (writer/co-star), and Nick Frost (co-star). The first two films, Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz Continue reading
