I’ve spent a good deal of time in this space discussing how much Kermit seems off on this new show.

And to make it even more fun – my local theater The Alamo Draft House, had a huge part in making the first viewing extra special.

Watson’s #11-20 Best Movies of 2014…Silver Medalists, All!

This was a great year for movies, so I didn’t want to just discuss my top ten.  There were so many movies that were worthy of consideration.
