My Favorite Ghostbuster (Happy Birthday Dan Aykroyd!)

 Back when I was a kid in the '80's, my family and neighbors invited me to see the first Ghostbusters film. For some reason I decided to stay home. I 100% regretted that decision because when The Ghostbusters franchise blew up and they had the cartoon show and toys I jumped on the Ecto-1 ride immediately.  I became obsessed with the cartoon, had the toys, enjoyed the Hi-C Ecto Cooler (I still love it!), and when the opportunity came to make up for my earlier mistake, caught the film on television. It's still to this day one of the greatest (if not THEE greatest) horror comedies of all time. And I finally went with family to see the sequel. Most people dismiss the film and though I agree it's not as good as the classic original, I have massive nostalgia for it. And it kept my love for all thing Ghostbusters alive to this very day. Among the four original Ghostbusters, I always gravitated towards Ray Stantz played by the brilliant SNL original member Dan Aykroyd. His amus

A Thrilling Legacy - Happy Birthday Vincent Price

 When I was very young in the '80's, my dad bought me my first Walkman. And my first physical piece of music...a cassette tape of the blockbuster album "Thriller" by Michael Jackson. As my sister and I laid in the back seat of our parents car listening to our tapes, I came across the title track. It set up a very spooky vibe (at least for a kid my age!) and it concluded with a very eerie voice. Darkness falls across the land The midnight hour is close at hand Creatures crawl in search of blood To terrorize y'all's neighborhood And whomsoever shall be found Without the soul for getting down Must stand and face the hounds of hell And rot inside a corpse's shell The lyrics were quite chilling.'s epic closing! The foulest stench is in the air The funk of forty thousand years And grisly ghouls from every tomb Are closing in to seal your doom And though you fight to stay alive Your body starts to shiver For no mere mortal can resist The evil of the

The Great And Powerful Oz - Happy Birthday Frank Oz!

 As I have stated numerous times, I am a massive Star Wars fan. Have been since I was a young boy. And growing up with Star Wars I was familiar with one of the great cinematic characters, Jedi Master Yoda.  And this character was brought to life by the magnificent Frank Oz. But even BEFORE that, I knew Frank Oz. From my toddler years watching Sesame Street. When I first heard Yoda I thought he sounded a lot like a Sesame Street character I was familiar with, Grover! Turns out I wasn't too far off. At all. He's voiced iconic characters like Grover, The Cookie Monster, and would team up with the legendary Jim Henson as he would voice Ernie, Mr. Oz would voice Bert. As Mr. Henson would voice Kermit The Frog, Mr. Oz would hilariously voice Miss Piggy. He would form brilliant collaborations with Mr. Henson with projects from Sesame Street and The Muppets franchise and with the great George Lucas with the Star Wars sequels. His partnership with Jim Henson also included the '80

BREAKING NEWS! Tom Cruise Is Darkseid AND Green Lantern In The SnyderVerse!

Easter has come early for Tom Cruise fans! According to WeGotThisSmotheredNews, the legendary Hollywood icon will be doing double duty as DC baddy Darkseid AND as the long rumored Green Lantern Hal Jordan in the now newly rebooted SnyderVerse! With the undeniable success of HBO Max's "Zack Snyder's Justice League," the momentum has swiftly gone towards continuing the adventures of Henry Cavill's Superman, Gal Gadot's Wonder Woman, Jason Momoa's Aquaman, and yes...Batfleck. And what better way to add that star power and take it over the top than to add Mr. Cruise!  Having lost the Mother Boxes and the battle to The Justice League, Darkseid will ultimately plan his return along with the dreaded Legion Of Doom! At his side will be Joe Manganiello as Slade Wilson, A.K.A. Deathstroke, Jared Leto as The Joker, Danny DeVito as Solomon Grundy, and with another bit of updated casting...Mark Zuckerberg as Lex Luthor! And joining Tom Cruise as the Lantern Corp will b

The Greatness Goes On And On... (HEAVEN AND HELL - A Black Sabbath Tribute)

 Many, many years ago I went into a Sam Goody store. Not a lot of physical music media sold these days. A small section at places like Target and Walmart, and though I'm lucky enough to have a local record store in my city, they just aren't plentiful like they used to be.  When I was in there I saw a cassette tape that was a two-for-one special. Two whole albums, one on each side of the tape. The first side was Black Sabbath's classic PARANOID. I had heard a handful of songs from the album on classic rock radio and loved the band. Grabbing this was a no brainer. On the other side was another Black Sabbath album. And this one was HEAVEN AND HELL. This was a while back and they never really played Ronnie James Dio's music on the radio. I think I had heard him fleetingly but not enough to make a judgement on him or the music. But since I was buying the tape for PARANOID, this album was a bonus for me. If I didn't like it...oh well. I can still wear out Side A. So when

The Ultimate Heavy (Happy Birthday Jack Palance)

 Back in the heyday of mom and pop VHS video store rentals, I used to pick up a lot of videos based on the classic monsters (Dracula, Frankenstein, The Wolf Man, and so on).  One day as I was searching through titles with my parents in the new releases area and I in the horror area, (and proud of it!) I came across a version of "The Strange Case Of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde" that I was unfamiliar here with in The States. It was a Canadian-American made for television adaptation. This was my first bit of exposure to the late, great Jack Palance.   Not only did I get a riveting (and in my opinion underrated) version of the Robert Louis Stevenson classic, but a splendid performance from Mr. Palance. It was also a joy to know he was one of a handful of actors to have played the iconic bloodsucker Dracula. For many of the younger generation (if they even know him at all), he's the old man that accepted a Best Supporting Actor Oscar doing one-handed push-ups. Truly a bizarre disp
