    This and the original Clone WarsΒ were my go-tos as a kid. I’d grab their beaten up DVD cases and run up the stairs to my parents’ bedroom to watch it on their tiny TV since no one else law ever really wanted to watch them every other week with me. My face would be lit as it sat transfixed not more 4 feet away from the screen while I laid back in my dad’s dilapidated office chair.

    The Harry Potter guy really went hard with this.

    "And I thought the Mississippi was something."

    I think this movie, The Invisible Man, and The Wolf Man are all tied for my favorite Universal monster flick. This one is especially fascinating as it has a female lead that is not written to be an empty-headed damsel in distress (hell yeah!), it promotes the theory of evolution (nice!), has a kickass creature design (sick!), and criticizes how the white man just can't leave shit alone (very nice).

    "Wh - ! Why, you have *hands*! You don't have claws at all!"

    My review from last year pretty much encapsulates anything of worth I'd have to say this time around, BUT I really, really have to stress how goddamn incredible 'Sally's Song' isβ€”both the original version and the official cover. As a whole, the lyrics of each and every song in this movie are so incredibly good, but this one really, really gets me.

    I just about nearly shat myself when I went onto Disney+ and it told me that The Last Jedi wouldn’t be available until December 26th. Thenβ€”whoopsiesβ€”I remembered that Netflix still existed.

    Anyway.

    Wow. I hadn’t watched the seventh Star Wars since July of 2018; well over a year ago. Two evenings earlier, I watched The Force Awakens, which I hadn’t seen since December 14th, 2017β€”the day I also watched The Last Jedi for the first time.

    My sixth viewing of…

    "How can I handcuff a bloomin' shirt?"

    I first saw this on 35mm at Music Box, an experience that cannot be surpassed. That said, I really, really love this movieβ€”even more than I did before.

    It's pure sci-fi horror gold, and the special effects for 1933 feel very much ahead of their time. Claude Raines certainly knew how to play the archetypal madman role very well, and even better when he could pul some funnies in the midst of all the mayhem!
