500 Movie Challenge: Coraline

At last, Coraline! Another animation classic, and another chance for me to get caught up on movies that came out from 2008-2012. I was doing a thing called “college,” which is a general term applied to a time in my life when I…

Dirty Rotten Scoundrels

500 Movie Challenge: Dirty Rotten Scoundrels

Netflix is probably one of the best inventions of the 20th century. Yes, it’s early, but I’m calling it.

Seriously, I would not be nearly as exposed to different kinds of films as I am now…

The Neverending Story

500 Movie Challenge: The Neverending Story

“What do you mean, you’ve never seen The Neverending Story?”

I mean I never saw it as a kid. So now I have to be quasi-creepy and watch it on my laptop as an…

Mad Max

500 Movie Challenge: Mad Max

Gentlemen Prefer Blondes

500 Movie Challenge: Gentlemen Prefer Blondes

Babes in Toyland

500 Movie Challenge: Babes in Toyland

This is another movie, much like The Thief and the Cobbler, where I picked one version of a movie without knowing there were other (and better) versions available. I thought this production of Babes in Toyland, filmed in 1961, would be…
