Waiting for Trick or Treaters

So far, I’ve seen the following costumes:
Deadpool (not home made – and in child size – weird)
A kid was, like, a dog, but also a fire Fighter
The smallest, cutest batman ever

I told my dog today was Halloween – here's his reaction

Ha, that face says it all, doesn’t it? Much to my surprise, Rocky seems to like wearing clothing. On the other hand, this Batman costume comes with a headpiece that none of our dogs will wear – not that I blame them. I do wish they’d make these costumes more like t-shirts, though. If it’s the right size, it’s surprisingly easy to get a dog into a t-shirt.

Anyway, Happy Halloween!

Freddy vs. Jason (movie review)

This movie has no business being any good, but Freddy vs. Jason is entertaining – at least, it’s entertaining if you grew up with these monsters. At 97 minutes, there’s no bloat to complain about, so, still to this day, FVJ remains one of the most pleasant surprises I can recall at the movies. Read the rest of this entry

Suburban Sunset


I don’t think this photo could be any more Bergen County, New Jersey unless I Photoshopped a victorious high school sports team in there. You’ve got trees, a mall, rush hour traffic – [sniffle] it’s beautiful.

“Winter is coming.”


I may have Game of Thrones on the brain. Hard to tell…  I am glad that they stopped reminding us of every house’s motto in each episode.

Anyway, here’s some roses dying off for the winter until they reprise, phoenix like, in spring.

A Nightmare on Elm Street 2: Freddy's Revenge (movie review)

What. The. Hell. Happend?

How quickly can the wheels fall off a franchise? Like they say in baseball, “Your team is only as good as your next day’s starting pitcher,” and in the case of Nightmare movies, A Nightmare on Elm Street 2: Freddy’s Revenge is the sort of dude who just throws the ball right down the middle at a pedestrian 85 miles per hour and gets annihilated in the first inning. (Baseball, October… synergy!) Read the rest of this entry

Deliver us from Devil? What’s that? (movie poster fun)


I’ve never heard of a movie called Deliver us from Devil.  What’s that?  A horror movie, no doubt.


I get it now!  You folks are clever!  See, yeah, I see what you did there!  You used the “D” from “Deliver” to make the word “evil” look like “devil” to do a play on the memorable “Deliver us from evil” line from the Lord’s Prayer as a title for your film!

That’s clever!


Here’s the best part of this entire situation: Read the rest of this entry

A Nightmare on Elm Street (1984 movie review)

The classic A Nightmare on Elm Street, like many slasher films, was made for just $1.8 million dollars and created a franchise that scared the bejesus out of me as a little kid. Nothing is scarier than Freddy Krueger (the immortal Robert Englund, who I also remember from the original V tv series), the villain who waits to attack you until you’re at your weakest – when you’re asleep! (Spoiler, Freddy invades your dreams and kills you in your sleep. Betcha didn’t know that.) Read the rest of this entry

Game of Thrones beer from Ommegang Brewery tastes, you know, fine

Ommegang is my favorite brewery and I’ve become a fan of Game of Thrones over the last few months, but I don’t have much to say about the union of these two franchises. Read the rest of this entry

Oh Hai, Nissan! Why’s your ad crazy?

I know it’s October and Halloween is on everyone’s mind, but jeez, Nissan – pump the proverbial breaks, would ya?   Read the rest of this entry

Avatar (movie review)

Why does Avatar exist? It’s the most pointless movie ever because it’s really just several flicks that everyone already saw cobbled together but taking place on an alien planet instead of earth. Read the rest of this entry
