I'm here to tell you that in my small hometown that the Ellport Roller Rink was the biggest deal when I was seven years old in 1979. Most Friday nights and plenty of birthday parties were spent there, rolling around the track that seemed huge as a child but was probably impossibly small were I… Continue reading Roller Boogie (1979)

This city would become the home for many of his later films. Before he'd go into film, however, Sidaris was an Emmy… Continue reading An introduction to the films of Andy Sidaris
We've sadly reached the end of another drive-in weekend. That feeling of pulling away from the Riverside Drive-In is the most palpable sadness that I know, realizing that it'll be five months plus until I'm back, eating great food, looking through videos, loading my trunk full of beer and staying up way too late.

My thought was here's who the Avengers team should be made from: The Fearless Leader (Captain America) The Strong Female (Black Widow) The Armored Hero (Iron Man) The Mythological… Continue reading Make your own Avengers!
Mike “McBeardo” McPadden's writing has long been an influence on my work. His last book, Heavy Metal Movies, is a brick-like tome packed with attitude that I've used as a reference since it was released. Now, he's back with Teen Movie Hell, which I'm declaring the ultimate in any info you'd ever need on movies with half-naked… Continue reading Teen Movie Hell: the book review
There's nothing like a drive-in. I feel that it's the best way to see a movie. The open sky, watching from the car or a chair, hamburgers, hot dogs, a cooler full of beer and perhaps some other substances, pizza, popcorn and staying up way too late. It's pure magic.
