Admittedly, I have a soft spot for Alice’s ’86 to ’91 era. I discovered the Coop by way of the ubiquitous “Poison” video during the heyday of MTV. Alice became sort of a family obsession, shared between myself, my brother, my sister and my mother. I would acquire his entire studio output, but those few… Read More ›
So, 1987 turns 30 this year, and to honor that, we celebrate a shit load of movies! Man, it was a good year. We each picked our top 8 genre movies — there is some overlap — and have a good time. One caveat: Nightmare on Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors was excluded because, you know, it’s… Read More ›

12 Days of Christmas #2 Happy holidays, friends! This week, we dive right into Christmas by chatting up a redemption viewing of Silent Night Deadly Night 2 (1987). We also rewatch the loose SNDN remake, Silent Night (2012), and discuss (is it still forgettable?).

Way back when, I used to contribute various articles and recaps to Entertainment Weekly‘s Community blog/fan site. While the site is now defunct, the content lives on. Kinda, sorta.
