Okay, so E.C. Henry IS my writing pseudonym. But after this last weekend I think another nicname may be in order: Mr. Indestructible! You see it was nephew's 3rd birthday on Saturday, and my brother hosted a gathering of little Riley's cousins: two girls and one boy. Riley is Obo's... Continue reading

Anyone who has the balls to split Marshawn Lynch wide, lining up as a wide receiver deserves to get some pub. And that's just what m' man Bevell did this last weekend--in the biggest game of the year no less, the Superbowl rematch against the Denver Bronkos (which the Seahawks... Continue reading

The movies: "Ted" (2012: Mark Wahlberg, Seth McFarlane, Mila Kunis), "My Super Ex-Girlfriend" (2006: Luke Wilson, Uma Thurman), "Weekend at Bernie's" (1989: Andrew McCarthy, Jonathan Silverman) and "Bewitched" (2005: Nicole Kidman, Will Farrell); what do they all have in common? They are what I would call, Unique Abilities Romantic Comedies.... Continue reading

Lemme just state right off the bat that I don't think Hollywood produces enough teenage romance movies. And a lot of the time when they do, they muck it up with stuff like vampires, werewolf and zombies: "Twilight" (4 movies 2008-2012, Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattenson), "Jennifer's Body" (2009: staring Megan...

I actually went into my first viewing of Taylor Swift's video for "Shake It Off" with much trepidation, thinking to myself, what if this girl is a bore and proves me wrong that I recently lauded such high acclaim in in once saying that I could see Taylor Swift becoming... Continue reading

Ever I wonder how my 6-year-old nephew, whom I gave the nic-name "Obo" to, would grade me? Does my good outweigh my bad? Let's take a look... Good: I took Obo to Wild Waves. Even better: I took Obo to Wild Waves a second time, this time with sandals so... Continue reading

I did something a little wacky earlier today; I printed out the entire NFL regular season, and predicted the outcome of every game. As a result of this E.C. Henry now predicts that after the 2014 NFL regular seaon ends here are the teams which will qualify for the playoffs:... Continue reading

Went up to Mt. Rainer last Sunday with my mom. She saw me kinda wallowing last weekend, and just wanted to spend some time with me. We left the house with the best of intentions, go up to Paradise and go hike "our meadow" about a half mile down from... Continue reading

Okay, so in your movie you managed to land Robert De Niro, Katherine Heigl, Amanda Seyfried, and Susan Sarandon. Can't go wrong, right? Ah, what about story? Ah, what about BELIEVABLE drama. The Big Wedding (2013: written and directed by Justin Zackham) is a mess of an attempt at an... Continue reading

Get the 1st of 3 movies from my adaptation of the epic fantasy novel I'm currently working a 3rd draft edit of! Going where no E.C. has been before... Well, I don't know about that, I have done adaptations before--just not of my own work. So is ol' E.C. Henry... Continue reading

T his post has been on my mind to write for about three weeks ever since I read about an article where Ridley Scott was planning on doing a movie on the story of David as recorded in the bible. Ridley Scott and the bible? I know, doesn't seam to... Continue reading

Okay, so I'm watching NBC's "The Tonight Show" staring Jimmy Fallon on Wednesday of last week, and guess who was Jimmy's featured guest that night? None other than Taylor Swift. Now, I'll be the first to admit, going into that Wednesday edition of "The Tonight Show" I knew just about... Continue reading

HUGE fan of the NFL. Only played 1 season of organized, after-school, extra curricular, football myself, 8th grade year, didn't know what the fuck I was doing, and the CRAP coaches I had made sure by the end of the season I was still DUMB AS ALL FUCK as pertains... Continue reading

For me it's nothing. I'm 45 years old. Don't have kids. Don't have a wife--or even a girlfriend for that matter. Heck, I don't even have any real friends. When I go out, I go out alone. Sure it cuts down on costs, but it's also not nearly as rewarding... Continue reading

First off, sorry for not posting last weekend. But in all honesty I have a good excuse. Normally I cook up a good post on Sunday, but this Sunday I got to drinking beer, THEN I got to watching "Enough Said", THEN my dad popped the news to me that... Continue reading

On Sunday I watched the best movie of all the 2014 releases I have seen up to this point. The multiplex clown in my area forced me to travel across the Puyallup valley to see it, but it was worth the trip. Had to go to the South Hill Mall... Continue reading

While penning my last post the idea of a new classification for a sub-genre listing under the general romantic comedy umbrella came to mind. I'm calling this new sub-genre: The Vacation Rom-com So what kind of movies do I see that belong under this umbrella? Check this shit out, Spanky:... Continue reading

I just got back from watching delightful romantic comedy at the theatres, "And So It Goes" (directed by Rob Reiner, written by Mark Andrus, staring Michael Douglas and Diane Keaton). Who says Hollywood can't make "good" romantic comedy movies anymore? Well, for you consideration let me now present THIS movie... Continue reading

The past can be a place that some people wanna run and hide from. For me that was my four years of high school. I think I actually got less popular every year I was at school after my dad relocated our family from Issaquah to Orting. I lived up... Continue reading

I remember watching the Oscars and hearing about this movie, "Nebraska" (2013): staring Bruce Dern, Will Forte, directed by Alexander Payne, written by Bob Nelson, about how it was up for best picture of the year, best screenplay of the year, best actor, and best supporting actress. At the time... Continue reading

My love for the movies probably first began as a result of watching the original "Planet of the Apes" series of movies that spanned 1968-1974. I was just a boy growing up on the south side of Chicago and some off-brand TV station used to re-broadcast these movies as part... Continue reading

If you were to design the ideal romantic comedy what would it look like? What would it's feel be? Lemme just begin by stating the heart of this post. After a long time of bemoaning the sad, state of the movie genre I loved the most, the creative in me... Continue reading

You'll never guess the two movies I saw back to back last Saturday night: "Thanks for Sharing" (2012: Mark Ruffalo, Gweneth Paltrow), then "Enchanted" (2007: Amy Adams, Patrick Dempsey) Now though IMBD sites "Thanks for Sharing" as being a romantic comedy, I'm here to tell you that it is not....

It's been a rough month or so of writing. (The whole thing with Washington crossing the Potomac--I can so relate) I've been getting bogged down in the epic fantasy story world. Should I write expanded bios? Focus on going deeper into scenes? Or just forge ahead in the story? This... Continue reading

This post has been a long time in coming. I've felt so disappointed by the overall, trajectory and direction the romantic comedy genre has been going down for nearly a decade. Every year it seams the overall health of the romantic comedy genre gets sicker and sicker and sicker. At... Continue reading
