I'm not a perfect person, but I like to think I keep Hallowe'en in my heart the whole year long. Death, skulls, gore, more death, Donald Pleasence- these are principles I cherish and espouse not just here at Mock It If You've Got It but everywhere I go. Every day. It's this sort of dedication that has allowed me to see Halloween 653 times. And now I shall share with you some horror movies, like I did last year, in an effort to spread fear and doom and I will do this because I care. And it may not be... Continue reading

Maybe it's the weather but it sure as fuck doesn't feel like October, even though Cabana Boy Kevin assures me it is already ten days in to the month. The clocks don't fall back for another month so I can't even rely on the sun and the moon to convince me that Halloween is mere weeks away. This week's edition of the MockBlog on Film is more for me than it is for you, but I'm a giver, so I'm going to share it with you anyway. You're welcome. The inner Tim Burton in us all is what makes us... Continue reading

I am relatively ignorant of pop culture- that's why I have so many opinions on it- in the sense that I am aware of ideas in the abstract yet am not acquainted with their actual manifestations on this plane of consciousness. I know Robin Thicke is a tool but have never heard that song. I'm not sure how Gone Girl (book) fell into this category; it's perhaps unfair but I just didn't feel compelled to read the book. But David Fincher ended up making Gone Girl (film) and cast Ben Affleck as a skeevy husband so it appears the story... Continue reading

A bachelor is a guy who never made the same mistake once. -Phyllis Diller Today is a bit of a day of mourning around the 'Bird Cage, but not because anyone has dearly departed like it's been; rather it is the end of an era. The long reign of George Clooney as the Ultimate Bachelor will soon be a thing of the past as the rumors (read: press releases) of his nuptials happening tomorrow are inevitable. So it is with a melancholic, whiskey-infused send off to the Groom-To-Be that I bring you this week's Mockingbird Movie Guide, the Clooney edition.... Continue reading

The '90s are back, as you may have heard, and while this portends rayon floral prints and those giant shoes, it also brings hope for the return of the Nebraska Football Dynasty, the reign of which will bring peace, equality, prosperity for all and the vanquishing of jerks. So let it be written, so let it be done. Go Big Red, The Mockingbirds Continue reading

There are movies coming out this week, as there were the week before and there will be for the next until the Sun swallows us whole. I'm good with this. And while I like to make fun of the majority of contemporary films because many of them are terrible, the fact they are being made is a great thing. The process itself is important, and sometimes so are the results. Sometimes you get Cabaret. I love this movie- it's brilliant, delightful, beautiful, funny, heartbreaking and scary. And Liza Minnelli is divine. You're invited to spend time with bohemians at the... Continue reading

The bass line in "New Year's Day" is a reworking- or exploration if you'll excuse the phrase- of the chords in "Fade to Grey" by Visage. Pointless, as advertised, but maybe now you have a couple of '80s tunes in your head. Like me. Continue reading
