Charlie Chan and the Chinese Ring

500 Movie Challenge: Charlie Chan and the Chinese Ring

Courtesy of Wikipedia.

There’s no way I’m not going to watch a Charlie Chan movie as part of the 500 Movie Challenge. There’s no way. That character’s too different from every other detective of that era, and the noir…

The Princess Bride

500 Movie Challenge: The Princess Bride

This is the first rewatch in a while, but there was no way I was going to leave The Princess Bride out of the 500. This movie’s too important to me personally, and is the epitome of a cult film. There…

The Ape Man

500 Movie Challenge: The Ape Man

Bela Lugosi is one of those men that certain horror-loving women just thirst for. He was a super-sexy Dracula, and is just considered a classic babe of the genre. So of course, I am honor-bound to watch some of…

Babes in Toyland

500 Movie Challenge: Babes in Toyland

500 Movie Challenge: Videodrome

All of my horror friends have seen Videodrome, and they can pretty much be divided into two groups: Those who love it and those that are endlessly obsessed with it.

Seriously, this movie is way too…

The Most Dangerous Game

500 Movie Challenge: The Most Dangerous Game

We all probably read the book version of The Most Dangerous Game in high school. It’s a brilliant story based on the idea that people are the most dangerous animal on earth….

The Book of Life

500 Movie Challenge: The Book of Life

The Book of Life has been on my list for a long time. It’s produced by Guillermo del Toro, whom I love. It’s also high time a proper movie about Day of the Dead was made. How had…
