The Intro of the Living Dead

" I am Dracula. I bid you welcome. "

Well, not quite. This sentence is only partially correct. I do extend my hospitality to you, dear reader. Friendly nod of the head, tip of the hat, a firm handshake, and all that jazz. However, I'm not Count Dracula. I can't even manage a decent Bela Lugosi impression. But I do love film.

I am but a boy. A witty (is sarcasm still witty?), fifteen-year-old boy with a collection of old movies, a computer, and a noggin full of opinions and all sorts of fun facts.

Have you ever wondered what a youth of today thinks about the movies of your past? What about your parents' past? And their parents? If so, you're in just the right place. If not, please stick around anyway. Chances are, you like movies. C'mon, who hates movies? The Saturday matinee can be enjoyed by anyone, regardless of age.

From the golden age of '30's chillers to the radioactive age of '50's science fiction epics. To the apex of the teenage comedy tower of the '80's! To the summer, CGI-packed blockbusters of today! This isn't a blog for slamming films (unless they truly deserve it!). No, this is a place for praising them!

Let's toast, shall we? "To a world of gods and monsters!" (Bride of Frankenstein, 1935)

Long live the B-movie mentality.

  1. Ooooh, YEA indeedy I will expect away. I have one request.

    Watch Cabaret (pleases)(if you want to).

    It's a FAB film, I feel I should make the WORLD watch this film.


  2. P.S. My google friend connect thing is SICK (like, as in ill etc etc) so I can't follow this blog AS YET. But know that I plan to.


  3. Thanks, Mia! You're a good buddy of mine.

    I have actually seen Cabaret. I agree, it is a great film. The musical numbers are fantastic and the cast is pretty much perfect in all aspects of the word. It is great, but it's not on my to-do list just yet. I have many other ideas.

    I can't wait 'til you follow :)

  4. this could be interesting, so I feel I must very much follow! I am, what they call, intruiged :)

  5. Abzicality, I welcome your intrigue :)
