This is the first part of a six-part review of this classic from 1982.I’ve written articles about films where I’ve made a point to note other movies that were released in the same year.

Tonight on THE WALKING DEAD, everyone got stupid. That's nothing new, of course. TWD's writers have made nearly every inch of plot progression in the bulk of the show's run entirely dependent upon and occurring as a consequence of the characters being stupid. Typically not just run-of-the-mill stupid; we're talking profound cretinism so b […]

Depending on your hierarchy of vacationing, food quality and selection is probably one of the top considerations when planning a trip. Although Universal Orlando has received praise most recently with its theme park food (i.e. Butterbeer, Krusty Burgers… basically anything Wizarding World– or Simpsons-related), it’s Walt Disney World that still carries the t […]
