ETERNAL CHARACTERS OF THE FILM LOVER’S MIND: THIS IS YOUR VOICE!

TGITDNMAR: (7/17/15)

Minions made ALL the money at the box office this weekend. How am I defining the phrase “ALL the money?” Apparently, it means $115 million in the U.S. and almost $300 million in the rest of the world. That’s a […]

TGITDNMAR: 07/10/2015

ETERNAL CHARACTERS OF THE FILM LOVER’S MIND: THE REAL, REAR WINDOW MYSTERY

TGITDNMAR: (7/3/15)
