The Twentieth Submissions

Originally I envisioned the twentieth installment to be the "Best Of, but really, shouldn't the "Best Of" installment stand on its own? Other things kept piling up and I never got around to until now, some seven months later.

The problem being that I wanted to kick this off with a bang, but double checking submissions, I hadn't realized that I had already posted them on the Nineteenth Installment. All I have left over is one meager joke that didn't pass muster and I already set today as the deadline, so...

"Hellraiser Arizona."

There it is and as I've said before when I kicked this thing off, surely you can do better and I know you can do better than that. Make me proud!

"Ghost Story of O"

"Dusk to Dawn of the Dead"

Ack! I waited too long to post Cloverfield of Dreams. (If you build it, you'll have to escape its destruction.)

That just leaves me with Juno Country For Old Men. (the new Cohen brothers movie in which a pop-culture-reference-dropping teen mom puts her stash of smack up for adoption. It's got Jason Bateman!)

I really have to get out more often.

OK, one more:

National Velvet: Book of Secrets (A drug-addled Liz Taylor teams up with Nicholas Cage in this adventure yarn to prove that Abraham Lincoln was actually assassinated by John Wilkes Booth’s horse.)
