On This Christmas Evening, I Bring Thee Great News

Happy Holidays, everyone.

If you've noticed my posting frequency has been a little lower lately, you must have a knack for noticing the obvious. Life has been very busy lately. Holidays. Travelling. Wedding plans. Movie watching. Et cetera. Things will slow down mid-January. Until then, I hope you'll check out a few exciting things on the intertubes and let me know what you think.

First, the latest episode of Natsukashi is up. Rob and I discuss one of my childhood favorites: Return from Witch Mountain. It's pretty funny and definitely worth your 27.4MB.

Second, Whitney just wrote about her thoughts on Christmas, family, and film. I can definitely relate to her feelings. Today, I watched The Tale of Despereaux with my mom. Marley and Me ended up being SOLD OUT so the bullet was dodged until another day.

Third, and I'm damn proud of this one, I am the newest blogger for FILM THREAT! That's right, the Film Threat. So far, I've written two posts: Deleting a Film from History and Three Scenes I Love: Christmas Movies. Things are starting to look up. Merry Christmas, me.

I hope everyone is having a great December.
And if these links weren't enough of a present for you...

Congratulations on joining Film Threat! and yeah Return to Witch Mountain made me want a flying RV so badly. My 12 year old daydreams involved the urban assault vehicle from Stripes, flying, with P.J. Soles as my co-pilot. TMI?

Well played, sir.

Oh, and speaking of well played... I finally watched Dead and Buried last night. It was everything you built it up to be and more. I can't believe I hadn't heard or read about it before. It seems like the kind of thing horror fans/scholars would be all over. Plus it was hilarious!

Oh yeah, and Frankenhooker was awesome too. I guess my Month of Terror continues on into January...

Congrats on Film Threat, Scott!

Tommy -- Thanks a lot! A quick correction, though. The movie you're thinking of is Escape to Witch Mountain. Great movie.

Keith -- Yes! Dead and Buried. Evil Grandpa Joe. People need to know about this movie. Frankenhooker was even better than 12-year-old Scott could have ever hoped.

Caitlin -- Thanks! You're awesome.

Congrats on the new gig at Film Threat, Scott! That's awesome!

And from reading your first entry regarding Birth of a Nation, I see that you've already been met by a pompous douchebag who completely misinterpreted your point.

Welcome to the next level of film criticism, "Son."
