A true classic that has gotten a little bit of a bad rap on certain levels. It's chalked up as cheesy or even dismissed because there was a time when it was played endlessly on PBS that it became almost nauseating. Luckily that was a long time ago and hopefully people will rediscover the film. It's considered a classic but it's sentimentality and its embracing of the goodness of people can be cheesy in the modern cynical times. I hope not because the idea that we do make an impact on people and our lives do matter is an important thing to share. It should also be one that is shared with all the joy and heartfelt emotion that goes with it. And sometimes old fashioned cheesy is exactly what is needed. Put your modern sense of cynicism away and just enjoy a good movie and appreciate the things you have. And remember no one is a failure who has friends.

I love movies. Plain and simple. I'm also an independent filmmaker working out of Chicago. This blog is my thoughts, feelings, and opinions on different films with an emphasis on horror as I feel it always gets the bum rap as the evil stepchild. I hold it up in just as high regard as any other type of film. I won't write generic movie news unless it's something I'm interested in. Just my vague ramblings on the movies that I dig. So whatever that is worth I thank you for reading.
