    Regarding the first appearances of both Groot and the Fantastic Four, who would have ever thought that Groot is now more popular among kids than the Fantastic Four? I guess that’s the power of movies!

      I know! I’m a huge FF fan, and it erks me how badly they have been handled over the years. Human Torch vs. Groot…

  3. I watched Toy Story with the kids the other day. That movie has aged really well. Still just as good now as it was in the 1990s.

  4. I’m sure it was an accidental oversight but you missed THANKSGIVING DAY on the fourth Thursday of the month. I feel this is probably the result of the confusion from a typo having placed it in October (of all places?) last month. Anyway, did my typo rationale win me a No Prize?!?

      What next, Michael? Christmas in February!?! Easter in September!?! You’re crazy! How could the pilgrims have enjoyed a big Thanksgiving feast if everything is frozen by the end of November?
