But I’m bringing it back this week with the hopes of keeping up with it from now on. Here’s a look at everything I’ve watched since last Saturday (3/28), in order… Read More Watched This Week, Vol. 2

Yesterday I learned that people have nicknames for the time between Christmas and the new year. I’ve never thought of it as anything but a typical week, but my favorite name of the bunch is “Betwixtmas” — so, I hope you all had a lovely holiday, and hope that Betwixtmas is treating you well, too!… Read More Collector’s Corner: Christmas, Criterion, and Cary Grant, oh my!
