PIRATE TEACHES MORALS

BLACKBEARD’S GHOST directed by Robert Stevenson  (USA, 1968)

What was your favourite movie when you were 10?

THE GOSPEL ACCORDING TO SCROOGE (1983)

This entry for Christmas Carol-A-Thon 2014 is a true oddity. It’s not so much a “love it or hate it” version of the Dickens classic so much as it’s a “like it or ridicule it” version, due entirely to the forced religious slant. 647 more words

The Return of Wilby Daniels

Decades in the making, it is time to complete one of the greatest film trilogies of all time.

HORRIBLE BOSSES 2 (2014) - My rating: 6/10

Horrible Bosses 2 is more like a horrible movie too.  While I’m not a fan of slap stick comedy, I did like the first Horrible Bosses. 213 more words
