Movies and History: Schindler’s List

January 27 was International Holocaust Remembrance Day. It marks the liberation of Auschwitz by Allied Forces (specifically the Russians) during World War II, and it is also a day set aside in which to remember the 6.5 million Jews who were systematically slaughtered and murdered by the Nazis. 6 million is a number almost too […]

Happy 30th, 40th, and 45th!

1989 Batman – There is no competing with the hype machine that went into this movie. There is no way it wasn’t going to be a blockbuster (and it was), though it took years for me to understand this was a comedy and not a drama like Superman. I’ve only recently began to appreciate it, and I […]

There’s Something About Lebowski

I would be remiss if I let the year end, and I did not write about two great movies from 20 years ago. Although, I know by the time I turn in this article and it is published, it will be 2019. I saw one of these movies in the theater, and from that moment I […]

The Day the Fun Died?

The Day the Fun Died?

January 2, 2019. “Mean Gene” Okurland I woke up to the news that “Mean Gene” Okurland died. If you don’t know who that is, you never watched any WWF (now WWE) wrestling—and you definitely don’t remember the high-tension stakes that was WrestleMania III when the two titans of WWF, Hulk Hogan and André the Giant (formerly […]
