Heads up, Dallasites



They're going to be showing Ghostbusters at the Texas Theater on the 29th. Time for you guys to cross the river and visit the Cliff. I expect to see you there, in costume.

Maybe, beforehand, we'll grab a quick bite to eat at the Charco Broiler.

Grendel Grendel Grendel (1981)



Yes, I know I'm starting with part two. You can go back and watch the introduction if you like, but it doens't add anything to the flick.

Watching this, I think about all those guys who do impersonations and how no one does a Peter Ustinov. Pity that. Maybe Peter Serafinowicz has one hidden in his repertoire, but I've not heard it.

Alexander Stitt of Abra Cadabra fame is our animator here. The film is based on the book by John Gardner, which you probably had assigned to you if you were in AP English. There's ten parts total, several songs, and a strangely sad ending.

At the very least, it's in modern English and there's no Crispin Glover.

I want to share this un-subtitled movie with you, because I'm pretty sure you'll love it. Don't tell me what happens.
