Double Your Fun!

I'm a big fan of double features. Since the demise of drive-ins [yeah, I know, many of you are too young to have ever been to one], we just don't get 'em anymore.

That's about to change next April when Quentin Tarantino and Robert Rodriguez [roll those R's Kelsey!] team up to bring us "Planet Terror" [zombies] and "Death Proof" [muscle car serial killer - not that he kills muscle cars, mind you].

Here's the link for the trailer.

Live Free and File Harder

I enjoyed all of the "Die Hard" movies. While I totally agree that "Die Hard" was by far the best, that doesn't take away my enjoyment of of "Die Hard 2: Die Harder" and "Die Hard with a Vengeance."

So, yeah, I'm looking forward to "Live Free or Die Hard" [although it's going to mess with my alphabetical filing of my DVDs if it makes the cut]. Unfortunately, the trailer doesn't convince me that it will.

007: 002 Views - 001 Vision

The two caricatures of Daniel Craig aka "The New James Bond" are the work of Tom Richmond. Tom is perhaps best known for his artistic endeavors at Mad magazine. I've been following Tom's work for some time now, and regularly check out his blog. Initially it was Tom's art that kept me coming back, but that's not what I'm writing about today.

Tom posted his thoughts after seeing "Casino Royale" yesterday. While I was reading Tom's review, I kept nodding and thinking, "My thoughts EXACTLY." I couldn't agree more with Tom in regard to his take on "Casino Royale" and the James Bond franchise. So if you want to know what I thought about the movie, then click HERE... as an added bonus you'll get to see a bunch of Tom's cool art as well.

Keeping It Movies

Today I want to suggest you check out The Movie Zone. It's a fan site about [surprise] movies. The Movie Zone is just starting out, but you can tell that Dan Balboa [the webmaster] has a passion for his subject.

Drop in and tell Dan I sent ya, and I'll owe you one!
