Patrick’s 100 Movies – Part 1 of 10

Paul of Aurora Walking Vacation just recently finished listing 100 of his own favorite films, so I thought I’d give my own list of 100 favorite movies, also split into ten parts. You aren’t likely to agree with all of my selections, and that’s okay. There are some of you...

The New Bond

This weekend, fans of 007 will flock to theaters to see the newest James Bond, Daniel Craig, in the 21st Bond film, Casino Royale. I won't be one of them. I grew up in the 70s, so the Bond I grew up with was Roger Moore. I didn't want to...
