Sometimes I feel like I have a weird way of grouping movies together in my head.  This process tends to spill over into my DVD organization, as well as into what movies I’ll group together and watch when I’m in the mood for a film marathon.  What’s a little weird about this process is that

Top 10 One-Eyed Bastards

Have you ever had one of those days where you got an eyelash stuck up under your eyelid and no matter how much you rub it or splash water on it you can’t get at it?  That was the majority of my morning, and it got to a point where I seriously considered gouging out

Back on November 28, 1986, this ad was published in The Deseret News for The Wraith. How could the people in the sleepy town of Salt Lake City know what awesome-ness lay within? And why isn’t the CAR on the ad?
