Building my Movie Posters Puzzle: Frankenstein

In late June I took advantage of some free days to visit my Mother in Virginia for her birthday. It was a fun long weekend that included meals out, a screening of Finding Dory, and an unexpected shared activity when I ran across a puzzle in the book store that was just too good to pass up. 1,325 more words


Cinema Scarcity - Ack!

A geezer thought.

We rarely watched movies on TV in Lexington in the 60’s. There were few channels and thus, few movies to watch.

Bride of Frankenstein (1935)

Few film sequels can claim to be better than their originals. Now that I think of it, almost none can claim that with certainty. Although one can argue the merits of “The Godfather” (1972) versus “The Godfather Part II” or “Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure” (1989) versus “Bill & Ted’s Bogus Journey” (1991) (kidding!), in truth the only film that can assuredly claim to be superior to the original is “Bride of Frankenstein” (1935). 2,153 more words

Iceman (1984)

If it wasn’t for knowing I put a disc titled Iceman into the DVD player, I’d swear the first half hour played like an alternate version of John Carpenter’s classic, The Thing. 504 more words
