    Until recently, I had tried and failed to watch "Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves" from beginning to end. My first attempt was so many years ago. I guess I was thirteen. My parents used to have a VHS copy of…

    I find "Frankenweenie" funnier than I did the first time around, and I enjoy Martin Landau's Dr. R even more this time. However, the movie is still kind of forgettable to me. Funny, cute, visually beautiful, and dark enough for Burton's family crowd. That's about it. Oh! Karen O.'s song is such a bop.

    I find this adaptation of "Dune" hard to properly judge at this time. First, it's only "Part One." Two, it's a movie of such awesome scope and thoughtful, mature storytelling that it took almost one whole day for me to fully process the experience. There would definitely be viewers who find "Dune" to be dull and too dense, but I find much more good than bad to be found in it.

    Have you ever watched in adulthood a specific classic movie for the first time and thought it was just "really good"? Like, maybe, you admired the craft and thought the movie was certainly effective, but it was too dark or short on character development to be a masterpiece or even re-watchable? Then, you have a third viewing of that movie about three years after the first viewing, and you finally see how freaking brilliant it is?

    "The Thing" is the movie John Carpenter was born to make, and my take is that this is the scariest movie ever made!
