Recently I was asked, what is the last movie you’d request to watch? It’s a riff on the more-traditional “what would be your last meal” sort of question (short answer: Brinner), but it stopped me in my tracks.Read more "The Last Movie"
It’s an exciting time to be a comic book/superhero/movies fan. We talk about that all the time on the real Words With Nerds™. In 1989, the cinema world shifted for a lot of people, myself included.
