    My favourite post was listed on October 23rd, 2009 when you did the review for the John Carpenter film “THE THING”. I remember when the movie came out, the reviews for it were terrible. I thought it had to be another stupid horror movie that wasn’t worth seeing. But John Carpenter made more and better films. I told myself I would rent the movie someday, but I never did. Not until I read your review did I go out to rent a copy. Boy was I ever a fool. Your review was excellent and right on the mark. THE THING was an awesome movie that deserved better recognition and was denied it. Thanks to your review I got a chance to see a great film by John Carpenter.

    I can’t remember the exact movie review but it was about an animal movie and it was written by your dog (Aurora or Athena?) I liked it because it was a clever way to review the movie. One movie review I do remember that was recent was about Snow White and the 7 Dwarfs and what I remember the best about it was that more people could name the 7 dwarfs than 7 political figures.
