…including my contributions to the “Yay!  Our website works again!” roundtable:

Baffled! (1973), in which a perky and insistent occultist dragoons a psychic who doesn’t believe in psychics into investigating the weird goings-on at a sinister English manor house…

Castaway (1986), in which Oliver Reed isn’t Tom Hanks and Amanda Donohoe certainly isn’t a volleyball, but being stuck for a year on a desert island still sucks just as much, even when you deliberately set out to do so…

The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug (2013), in which you can just barely make out a few charred bits of wreckage that sort of resemble J. R. R. Tolkien’s story if you squint at them long enough…

The Man with a Cloak (1951), in which C. Auguste Dupin– who’s really Edgar Allan Poe in disguise– tries to aid a French revolutionary’s girlfriend in saving a cantankerous old man from murder at the hands of his own servants…

Phantasm II (1988), in which the kid from the first film grows up into a different actor, checks out of the mental hospital, and goes all Captain Ahab on the Tall Man’s ass…

Prisoners of the Lost Universe (1983), in which several irritating people are accidentally transported to a parallel Earth in the process of being conquered by John Saxon…

Revenge in the House of Usher (1983), in which Jesus Franco hides the plot outline of the Best Movie Ever ™ under a bad, boring horror flick…

and…

Strange Days (1995), in which I rather belatedly wish you all a happy new year.
