What I always enjoyed about Morticia and Gomez was how they made no secret that they passionately loved each other. We get so used to seeing depictions (on television especially) of married couples in continual states of contention—belittling one another, falling into the wife/mother-husband/child trope, and generally disrespecting each other, which made me wonder why they even bothered marrying in the first place.
But Gomez and Morticia never lose their desire and respect for each other. Is it because they’re “weird” that it’s acceptable to depict married life so positively? Or are they “strange” because, after three children and a lifetime together, they still adore each other? I know no marriage is perfect, but wouldn’t it be nice if the media portrayed marriage as more than a continuous state of exasperation and anger? Maybe that’s why romance novelists and romance novel readers are so embattled: because we dare to believe in love.

Paperman - Full Animated Short Film (by disneyanimation)
This short, which played in front of Wreck-It-Ralph in theatres, is one of the most stylish and coolest short films I’ve ever seen. It’s sweet, funny, and another notch on Disney’s animation belt.
It’s no wonder it’s a Best Animated Short Film nominee at the upcoming Academy Awards.
Sergio Leone’s Once Upon A Time In The West hit theatres 44 years ago.
While the Man With No Name Trilogy gets the bulk of the attention, OUATITW is a masterpiece in its own right.
The vicious struggle between Charles Bronson’s mysterious Harmonica and Henry Fonda’s bloodthirsty Frank features Leone at his directorial and visual best, with Morricone’s haunting soundtrack rounding out one of the best cinematic experiences you can have.
They’re here, they’ve come.
Ten years ago, one of the greatest movies of all time was released: The Two Towers.
While I’m of the mind that Lord of the Rings is a singular 12 hour movie, Two Towers deserves recognition for being the best installment.
It’s where Gollum/Smeagol was fleshed out into a beloved tragic icon (thanks to the fascinating efforts of Andy Serkis,) where the vicious evil of of the Ringwraiths is truly glimpsed, where the true scope of the struggle against Sauron and the quest for the ring are revealed… and then there’s the siege of Helm’s Deep, which might be my favorite cinematic battle ever.

Can we talk about how insane it is that we’re getting a Wolverine yakuza movie?
Kevin Smith confirmed today via twitter that Clerks III is in production. Snoochie boochies! Smith had once said his next movie, ‘Hit Somebody’, would be his last movie, but it looks like he’s doing one last Clerks before he’s done.
Kevin Smith’s filmography has been intertwined with my life since I was a teenager; from my days as a clerk to my days as a mallrat, to my pot-heavy snoochie boochie days, to the fact that I wouldn’t have met my lovely wifey without Clerks II.
So. Clerks III is most welcome news. I can’t wait to see what tale in the adventures of Dante & Randall Mr. Smith has to bring us as his grand finale.
Mitsuko Souma had died. Physically? Just a moment ago. Mentally? Ages ago.
Can’t wait ‘til my next day off to take in and explore one of my newest acquisitions: Battle Royale on blu-ray. From what I’ve seen it looks fantastic. Plus, over a decade after first seeing this masterpiece on an imported bootleg VHS, it’s nice to finally own a legitimate region 1 copy of the movie, complete with real subtitles!
The Warriors, simply put, is one of the coolest fucking movies of all times. It’s a near-apocalyptic story of a single gang kicking ass on its way through enemy territory. One of very few movies where the ’70s-tastic-ness not only doesn’t date the flick, but it adds to the surreality and epicness of the film.
So, today’s lesson is, you kill each other off till there’s only one left.
Nothing’s against the rules.
I LOVE this book <3
YES! While the movie is it’s own brand of awesome, the book is a million times better! So much character details, with every single one of the students getting a turn in the spotlight. It saddens me how underrated & widely unknown Takami’s tome is.
