Christmas Movie – Miracle on 34th Street

Originally this movie was released in 1947 with a young Natalie Wood. But I am sharing the 1994 version. This movie is a classic, and one that everyone can enjoy. It may help provide that holiday magic that we sometimes lose. The movie centers on a department store in New York. It’s before Christmas, andContinue reading “Christmas Movie – Miracle on 34th Street”

The Last Double Feature – Hocus Pocus

No October or Halloween would be complete without watching Hocus Pocus. This movie is also a favorite of my sister’s, and since it is her birthday, I’m showcasing it today in her honor.

Double Feature – The Haunted Mansion

Walt Disney has created an entire world in which a kid can experience adventure, fantasy, and fun. One of the rides at the park, was The Haunted Mansion. In 2003, Hollywood decided to make a movie based on this attraction. Real estate agent, Jim Evers and his wife Sara, receive a call from a manContinue reading “Double Feature – The Haunted Mansion”

Double Feature – Beetlejuice

I remember when I was in Junior High that I was often called Lydia by this boy at school. I didn’t know him but I liked it, and since I had dark hair, and was myself a little “strange and unusual” it seemed to be accurate. So today we have Beetlejuice. 1988, Tim Burton gaveContinue reading “Double Feature – Beetlejuice”

Double Feature – Buffy the Vampire Slayer

I love Joss Whedon, and I especially love this movie. It isn’t the same as the series, and I highly recommend the movie if you are a vampire enthusiast, a Joss Whedon fan, or if you enjoy watching a girl be the hero. This movie follows Buffy, who is a high school cheerleader, dating theContinue reading “Double Feature – Buffy the Vampire Slayer”

Double Feature – The Witches

When I discuss movies, it’s almost always going to be the original, or the first one that I have seen. The Witches first came out in 1990, and is a Roald Dahl story. It follows an orphaned boy and his Grandmother. Luke and his Grandmother have moved to England after his parents died in Norway.Continue reading “Double Feature – The Witches”

Double Feature – Dracula Dead and Loving It

This is a horror comedy. It’s a Mel Brooks film, and as I have said before, he’s a genius. The movie was released in 1995, and follows the Bram Stoker Dracula story to a degree, but interpreted as only Mel Brooks can do. Taking place in 1893, the story starts with Thomas Renfield travelling toContinue reading “Double Feature – Dracula Dead and Loving It”

Double Feature – The Addams Family

We were first introduced to the Addams Family in 1964, lead by John Astin. Now don’t get me wrong, this is classic television and I will watch it if it is on TV. However, in 1991, we were reintroduced to the Addams Family, for me, I was hooked. The movie starts out with Gomez missingContinue reading “Double Feature – The Addams Family”
