Just get it out of the way: I really like “Avengers: Endgame.” I think it’s a great finale to the whole series, I found some parts legitimately exciting and emotional and even though it’s enormous and there are probably things to complain about, I won’t. Except for this weird thing! Only because it involves the […]


I heard about the “One Marvelous Scene” project through my subscription to “Lessons from the Screenplay,” and I’m glad I did. Much like the MCU films, I’ve enjoyed most of the entries and arguments made, and have picked up some new subscriptions on the way. So, it worked, guys. Way to cross-market. Synergy. But with […]


Here are some movies about bands, rock music and the like which I enjoy. Some have authoritatively been called “Great” others have not. I make no apologies for it. It’s just a list, in no particular order.

If you were bored with the first one, […]


Recently, a number of things have lined me up with the work of Stanley Kubrick. A viewing of “Room 237” led to a viewing and discussion of “The Shining,” which lead me to seek out more discussion on that movie, which brought me to a number of podcasts, and as you might suspect, there is a lot of type- […]
