Catch-Up Friday and the best movie montages

Right to the links, in somewhat lightning round fashion so you have time to have fun with the YouTube clips at the bottom. I know I had fun finding them: Man, it’s been, like, what, a couple months since George Lucas announced his latest way to scam us out of money? We’re due for another one [...]

The Remake Police: Real Genius

In case anyone is wondering, this is why I got into the blogging business.
