Movie of the Day: The Secret of NIMH (1982)
Moms represent in this film adaptation of the 1971 children’s book Mrs. Frisby and the Rats of NIMH. Don Bluth wasn’t taking it easy just because it was a kiddie story, though, because this movie could be genuinely unsettling. That owl was a real dick even if he was wise and helpful.
Movie of the Day: Total Recall (1990)
I haven’t seen the remake of this sci-fi classic. Not because I have anything against the idea of a remake. It’s just that I doubt Colin Farrell’s ability to sell me on the idea that he could survive almost having his head explode on Mars and without that, what’s the point?
