Couple things on the wrap-up this year: first I can say that in 2015 I watched an even 70 films. By no means am I a “power-watcher” of movies, quality over quantity, or said another way: I have a day job. And kids. And I’m usually tired by the time I get a chance.

A roundup of what I’ve watched, read or listened to lately: Thankfully, no Exorcist remake is coming. (H/T Horror-Movies.ca!) Projection Booth #144 on “The Brain That Wouldn’t Die” (1962).

Also, the first shut-outs of our competition so far! Here’s how it shook out last week: Day the Earth Stood Still–1 vote (50%) Black Sunday (this week’s “Movie of theContinue reading “Grindhouse Brackets 6: The Elite 8-and-a-Half!”
To celebrate the release of the highly anticipated Godzilla film this weekend, here are the trailers of 29 previous Toho films. I don’t include non-Toho films here, especially the highly-despised 1998 Matthew Broderick version, and I’m not a kaiju-guru enough to know if this list is complete. But it at least gets us a good startContinue reading “60 Years of Godzilla Trailers!”
