Movie Musical Monday: The Greatest Showman

The Greatest Showman is a movie musical based (read loosely) on the life of PT Barnum and the creation of Barnum Circus. The liberties that are taken in the telling of this story are disgusting, honestly. But, hey, at least the music is good. Look, if you’re going to make a musical out of the... Continue Reading →

I mean, Carol Burnett playing Ms.... Continue Reading →

The Conjuring was a fantastic film based on the ghost stories told by Ed and Lorraine Warren. It does not, however, warrant an entire... Continue Reading →

60. Duck Soup (1933)

Rufus T. Firefly is named president/dictator of bankrupt Freedonia and declares war on neighboring Sylvania over the love of wealthy Mrs. Teasdale. Look, I know it’s a classic.
