My Two Cents (Daily) - Fury, Carol Burnett, Tyrant & (sadly) Mike Nichols RIP http://t.co/iNtJ1GHMQB
No list again this week – and no stroll down memory lane, either. This week is straight column with a full disc review on the side.
22 Jump Street – I can’t say I am too much of a fan of these films. The first one was cute and I remember scenes more than the movie itself. This one, I couldn’t remember a day after seeing it. Or did I see it? I don’t remember. See? [Read on here…]
Not only am I a huge movie fan – I also love to read. Novels, short stories and comics; I’ll read the back of a can of ravioli – I don’t care. My mother is mostly responsible. In my summers growing up, she would assign me books to read and for some reason I did it without argument. It was mostly the classics: Robinson Crusoe, Moby Dick, 20,000 Leagues – the good stuff.

It’s time for GripeSoda’s final Halloween themed List-o-Mantic of 2014.
We did Zombies. We did Vampires. Today, I bring you the 10 Best Multiple-Murdering Movie Maniacs... according to me.
I’m going to get some grief for this one, but it really boils down to how watchable these monsters are over the course of the films they headline. There are two on this list that, if you’re unfamiliar with, seek them out and enjoy. Notable missings (but worth mentionings): Jigsaw, Ghostface Killer and Norman Bates. [Read on here…]
Welcome back to GripeSoda’s List-o-Mantic.
Zombies were the thing last week. Vampires is this. I bring you the 10 Best Vampire Movies according to me.
This go-round, I’m including likeminded films in the same number standing – so rather than sequels or series, this time, it’s versions. Basically it’s kind of a potpourri of the best Dracula films at number 3 and the films you should check out to embrace Nosferatu (who, I know is Dracula, but just stop and let me have my dang list please). Please to enjoy what I think about Vamps. [Read on here…]
