Today’s Lesson It’s very tricky trying to watch my movies with the power off.
Freddy vs. Jason. Too little too late? Ok I admit it. I’m looking forward to Freddy vs. Jason tomorrow. To be brutally honest I’m almost giddy. I’ve been waiting almost 15 years for this film. I remember as a kid talking with my friends about how cool it would be … [Read More]
