Ode to a Scream (Franchise)
The moment the temperature in Arizona starts to dip under 100 degrees, in my mind, it’s finally autumn. Of course, this year, most likely due to the strange time we’re living in, we’ve been reintroduced to some fall favorites a bit earlier than usual. I’m…
Quiz: Ripley, Our Lady of Survival
Heymonster created a line of merchandise a while back called the Patron Saints of Female Characters. In a time when we’re all taking it day by day, our Lady of Survival Ellen Ripley came to my mind. I have chosen to binge the Alien franchise…

How to Explain a Movie Plot, Badly
If you know me, you’ll know I am almost totally uncultured when it comes to movies. Now, don’t get me wrong, I love watching movies. But the list I have accumulated over the years of “must-watch movies” (or so my friends tell me) has just…
The Haunting Of Ed and Lorraine Warren
We love a good scare or haunting on Halloween. Some scientists believe that it’s a natural craving humans have to whet our brains’ appetites for fight or flight responses. Whether it is those bloodcurdling screams heard echoing in the night or the moaning of a…
13 Classic Horror Movies
Halloween horror movie season is just around the corner and that calls for a movie marathon! These scary movies are a combination of jump scares and genuinely terrifying stories. Also, I would not recommend these to children… some of these films are quite horrifying. These…
The Best Disney Halloween Movies
Listen, Disney Channel Original Movies are LITERALLY the greatest. They are, hands down, THE BEST made for TV films known to man. My not-so-humble opinion, of course. Smarthouse, Zenon Girl of The 21st Century, The 13th Year, Luck of the Irish? I could go on…
A Weekend with Film Fest Tucson
October in Tucson is a time for great weather and community events. So far this month, Bookmans Tucson played tabletop games all weekend long at Rincon Oct 4-6 and joined the College of Humanities at their lectures during this month’s Tucson Humanities Festival Oct 2-Nov1….
Monster Movie Bingo
Summer is a time of big-budget blockbusters, and as we learned in my previous blog, sequels. For many Arizonans, it’s a time to find that well air-conditioned space it could be Bookmans, or a museum as long as it’s not the house. That space for…
Summer Blockbusters We Can’t Wait To See!
Summer is here and with it some awesome movies all vying for our attention and box office dollars. Summer may be when most of Arizona is currently melting into the concrete, sorry Bookmans Fam, but it is also when all the latest blockbusters hit the…

Avengers: Endgame: Thoughts, Feelings, and SPOILERS!
Avengers: Endgame is here. First, I underwent the spiritual journey that was Beyonce’s Homecoming. Then it was adrenaline-induced heart palpitations during The Battle of Winterfell. I decided to keep the emotional rollercoaster going and watch Avengers: Endgame. Though it seems like I enjoy torture, I’m honestly…
Keanu Reeves Movies? Excellent!
Any plans for this weekend? Other than heading over to your favorite Bookmans location for Independent Bookstore Day that is? Maybe you are one of the lucky few to get your hands on a pass to Glasgow, Scotland’s finest sold out film festival, KeanuCon. That’s…
Favorite Soundtracks of the Early 2000s
This weekend I got a dose of nostalgia when I saw Donnie Darko at the Loft Cinema as part of their Cult Classics series. Watching the film on the big screen was a treat since I hadn’t up until last Friday. I was not only…
Are You Ready for the Endgame?
Are you ready for the Endgame? I’m counting the days until April 26th. I purchased my tickets. I am ready. In the meantime, however, I’ve been reading all the graphic novels and immersing myself in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU). I also recently rewatched most…
