R.I.P. Harold Ramis

Harold RamisThere’s a list of films I can always remember having seen: Star Wars Episode IV, V, and VIBack to the Future Parts I, II, and III; Terminator II: Judgement Day and probably The Terminator, as well; various Star Trek films; Indiana Jones one through three; and Ghostbusters I and II. All are films I grew up on. I love them. The last series has lost one of its stars and co-writers. Harold Ramis – star of GhostbustersStripes, SCTV, and many others – has died. Continue reading

100 Years of Chaplin: Yet Another Schedule Update

Hey, all! As you might have noticed, there hasn’t been a post for 100 Years of Chaplin in quite a while. Sadly, it might be a while until the next post. Due to some personal issues, my output here at The Artistic Packrat might slow down for a bit. Chaplin month will probably turn into Chaplin year. I have not specific dates but I will review everything posted on the first schedule before the end of the year. I am really sorry about this. Will try to get everything else out when I can. Thank you for being patient!

100 Years of Chaplin: Updated Scedule

Charlie ChaplinSome may have noticed I haven’t posted a review of The Tramp today for my month of Chaplin. Due to just plain forgetting to watch it last night, jury duty, and work commitments, I haven’t been able to watch it yet. I am going to try and watch it tonight and get a review up before the end of the day. If I can’t, I’ll just move all of the films up by a day, with the last review being on February 28 instead of February 27. That or I’ll just do a double feature day where I talk about two films on the 13 instead of just one.

Sorry for the hiccup in the schedule. Hope you will still join me for the rest of Chaplin month!
