1  Horror Drive-In / Drive In Theater By Night / Re: The Mummy on: June 17, 2017, 09:43:42 PM

I caught a matinee of the Mummy today. I went in with low expectations due to all the bad reviews it's receiving. So maybe that low bar helped, but I thought it was an okay "B" movie. It had plenty of plot holes, and the ending seemed a bit thrown together but I enjoyed it for what it was. I'd say it's comparable to my experience with Wonder Woman. Although I might have been a bit more bored by WW, I think I'm looking forward more to WW being in Justice League and a WW2 than I am to further adventures in Universal's Dark Universe.

I'm intrigued. The cinematography of Roger Deakins looks amazing. This is turning out to be a great year for movies I want to see. IT, The Dark Tower, Alien Covenant, Kingsman: The Golden Circle, The Mummy, The Shape Of Water, numerous super hero films, and of course Star Wars: The Lat Jedi.  I think I'll actually see more films in the theater this year than the last few years.

Thanks for the update Stephen.

I pre-ordered these many moons ago. I'm glad to hear copies will soon be in my hands.
I hope these Fredric Brown books are a successful endeavor for you, and that we get many more volumes in the Fredric Brown Mystery Library series!

Loving these.

This video is just clips of an interview King did on Whoopi Goldberg's short-lived 90s talk show. I love seeing this because it was the first televised King interview I ever saw.


I remember watching this when it first aired. I love King interviews. Here's a recent good one conducted by George R.R. Martin. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v_PBqSPNTfg

 I also like these two biographies of King floating around on youtube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-oSQ6w96gZ0

I haven't been around much for the last several months because of things going on in my life. Mostly good stuff, but I hope to check in more often in 2017 when things calm down.

Happy Thanksgiving Mark, and all the Horror Drive-In crew!

 "I hunted for a CD of that score for years. I was so happy when I found it.  I'm also one of the handful of people on Earth that love the movie!"

I'm in that handful as well. I know it has it's flaws, but I still love it. I still need to get it on Bluray so I can finally watch it in Widescreen format.

 Listening to: Jerry Goldsmith's phenomenal score to THE SHADOW while I read comics.

One of my favorite Goldsmith scores!

I'm so pleased to hear that your life is full of positives these days, Mark. That's awesome. I hope your relationship continues to blossom. And I'm happy that you are getting to spend some quality time with India. It sounds like it's been a great Summer so far. Here's to the trend continuing.  Grin

11  Horror Drive-In / Drive In Theater By Night / Re: Does Solow still haunt the Horror Drive-In? on: February 19, 2016, 07:38:50 PM
I have faded into oblivion... well not quite, I confess. But most of my social stuff is on Facebook these days, and generally chats with people I could walk down the street to see half the time.

I've just found over the last four/five years my actual knowledge base/interests have moved so far from horror I'd don't have a great deal to contribute, though I do drop in at least once a week to see what's going on... not that anyone misses me Smiley

We miss you, Steve. Truth be told, I read and watch more Fantasy, Weird, Suspense, SF, and Mystery than Horror nowadays, but I'm still here because I enjoy the group of people that gather here. And I like it here because it's a pretty civil message board community.


12  Horror Drive-In / Drive In Theater By Night / Does Solow still haunt the Horror Drive-In? on: February 19, 2016, 01:00:36 PM

Over the years, many board members come and go. Some make such a strong impression they pop up in your mind now and then, especially when you realize you haven't seen them around in ages. Take for instance, Dave Solow. Whom I remember from multiple message boards. I remember him saying he was retiring from his job some time back. I hope he's off traveling and having a wonderful retirement. I just miss seeing his posts around.

Who are some of the other Board members whose presence you miss, either here at The Horror Drive-In or at any of the now defunct boards?

That is an AWESOME gift! She's a keeper.  Grin


14  Horror Drive-In / Drive In Theater By Night / Re: Dark Tower (2017) on: February 14, 2016, 10:49:52 AM

I'll believe it when camera's actually start filming. The Dark Tower has been in development hell for so long I've lost any faith that it will actually come to fruition. Though, I'd love if it did.

I'm reading The Darktower:The Wastelands right now. I'm hoping to complete my first full trip to the Dark Tower this year.


15  Horror Drive-In / Drive In Theater By Night / Re: DEADPOOL on: February 14, 2016, 10:45:38 AM

The wife and I really enjoyed Deadpool. I liked it better than KICK-ASS! Ryan Reynolds was born to play Wade Wilson.  A great time at the movies!

Anyone who liked Reynolds in Deadpool should check out his movie Just Friends. It's become an annual holiday watch in our house.
