  • Review – Halloween: Resurrection (2002) & Acid Kuba kuba cigar

    Like a line from that old Grateful Dead dirge, what a long, strange trip it’s been. After much waxing nostalgic, we have reached the final chapter in our Halloween retrospective. Unfortunately, that final chapter is Halloween: Resurrection. Perhaps a better title would have been Halloween: Let’s Get This Over...
  • Review – Halloween H20 (1998) & Joya de Nicaragua Cuatro Cinco cigar

    Perhaps only a scant three years had passed since the last Halloween film hit cinema screens, but H20 was released during a new era as far as horror movies were concerned: the post-Scream era, a world that includes the Jump Scare*, tongue-in-cheek humor, and a new brand of savvy...

  • Review – Halloween (1978) & Liga Privada No 9 Corona Viva

    Ah, the autumn season begins its turn. The fiery orange of sunset seems to take on an even more magical hue. Maybe your lady friend has traded in her summer shorts for jeans and a light sweater, but she is still beautiful just the same. The bourbon begins to...

  • Episode 62 – Killing Gunther (2017) / Daniel Marshall Red Label cigar / Paulaner Salvator Doppel Bock

    With all the craziness going on in Hollywood these days, it’s damn near impossible to sit around and talk movies without discussing the highly sensitive subject of sexual harassment and its impact on culture and society as a whole. Having said that, I think whenever the TNCC gathers together...
