Thanks to my complete coincidence powers, the 49th Anniversary of Doctor Who was yesterday...and the three of us watched this one again as a family!.
One with think with Thanksgiving ALWAYS on Thursday, I would be able to plan better for that theme. Then again, Doctor Who Day is always this time of year, and no one who knows me should be surprised where my loyalties really lie.

We finished watching the Universal Monsters collection (Or at least the large portion of it I own) with the last Gill-man flick on the 66th Anniversary of that movie's release.
Back on "Alien Day," April 26, 2022.
It is possible planning this blog too far ahead messes up any anniversary celebrations.

Jeff’s Disney World Philosophy-
These sections will be more of a “why” than a “what” reflections on our Disney life. In this case-
Yes, these planning documentation posts are insanely overdone and have a lot more in them then just planning. This is because:
A) Our family is continually in Disney Planning mode with multiple influences
B) Family meetings (and my own opinion) determined that Disney Days cannot be separated into multiple posts because it messes up the flow and the running gags. Each day can run five to six times the size of a normal post. Therefore, It requires a great deal of time to create and review them. I need to sleep too, you know.

There aren't any running comments as we were too busy laughing and this one especially doesn't fit the continuity of the main series at all.

Since the vast majority didn't like it, and made fun of it mercilessly.
And I had things to do.
I didn't see Morbius in the theater.
Since I know me, however, I pre-ordered the Blu-Ray sight unseen.
And it was the right move.

I reviewed this when the blu ray disc came out. (Yes I'm old, I like discs...and I can still watch them when the internet goes down, you rotten kids.)
Then a million "important" things premiered. Its been pushed off so often I'm not sure when it is posting anymore.
Executive Summary: I would have preferred my self created Tron/Matrix/Terminator (and a bunch of other stuff) cross over, but I liked this one.

This is where it all started for me. Horror comedies are my favorite genre, and this is he grand-daddy of them all.

My weekend night video game relaxation has almost exclusively been playing Fight Night Champion for a long time.
Yes, open world games are more immersive, but they also take a lot more concentration and remembering what was going on, sometimes adding to stress instead of reducing it.
I've been reading books and websites on boxing, leading to saving up ideas for which match-ups to do on the weekend, then blowing off the week's steam on this game. That leads to wanting to read more books and websites on boxing the next week, and the cycle continues.

Neil Gaiman waited several DECADES for the proper medium, technology and creative control to make a live action adaptation of the Sandman series. In that time he worked on other adaptations to learn what he needed to.
And the result is freakin' brilliant on all levels.

For anyone who thought the whole idea of a slow moving killer going from movie to movie following one story line and killing those who survived the previous film started with Eighties slasher stories...
Nope, Kharis and friends did it back in the Forties.
Granted all four of these movies are only an hour long. That likely means, if you took out the recaps, it's just about enough material for two films today. Still I feel I was harsh at first stating the Mummy sequels really dropped in quality. These are all fun, and the continuing storyline through four films is impressive.

and even weller after the days I watched wrestling in my youth.
Therefore it shouldn't count as part of this list.
But it will, for "reasons."
I caught it on an "Undertaker's Greatest Matches" show before all the wrestling stuff vanished off of Netflix when the WWE (and everyone else in the world) made their own streaming service.

It should be clear at this point that I am, and ever have been, an old softie. Three of these moments are finishes that looked like they would create or amplify feuds, but instead led to reconciliations.
I love a happy ending.

We almost went out of order here in this three movie year, because Rosa wanted to know how the heck the Mummy returned again.
Boris Karloff is back! This time he's a human "monster," the mad scientist Doctor Neimann
And he is awesome and terrifying without any Jack Peirce masterpiece glued to cover his whole face.

Hey, remember back in the index when I said I didn't know which two moments would be replaced by ones I'd talked about before?
I lied, it's this one and the next one.

Lucky thing they left his arc incomplete after Endgame.
Once more planning ahead in general means my reviews are late, therefore I will not worry about spoilers.

After a brief anniversary break comes a reminder that, while some of the wrestling moments that stuck with me were highly emotional, such as the last one from this very WrestleMania, many others I remember for being silly.
Very few moments reached the heights of silly that this "blindfold match" did, and that includes the build up.
Let's start with the participants:

And it is!
Because I still can't read a calendar.
It was very nearly a cool celebration of my 1199th post.
Anabelle deserves thanx for helping me with this in two ways.
1) She'd ask what film I put for a year or if I included a specific movie and I'd forget what I said, making me look up the year again and finding films I missed.
2) She reminded me I could adjust publish dates after I set them up, meaning after an incredibly late night of shifting post times and cross references this one IS for #1200!
Background- People on a Facebook movie group were listing
"My favorite movie that came out each year I was alive."
It took me much longer to do this than most of the younger folks in the group.
With that kind of time investment, I get to put it here.

helped along) The Ultimate Warrior could not sustain the popularity Hogan had as the WWF Champion.
Hogan again took the title at WrestleMania VII, the same night the Warrior won what may have been his greatest match ever...
Under conditions that made absolutely NO ONE care about his triumph, and made the entire wrestling world focus on what happened after he left the ring.

This evening started with my old VHS tape of the Ralph Bakshi animated, post-apocalyptic, fantasy classic Wizards. I did warn Rosa it was weird, but she believed it was a standard "weird Jeff movie," and did not calibrate for it being "weird even by my standards."
She said it scarred her and asked to watch the next Universal Horror movie to cleanse.
I'm so proud.
We've reached 1943 and Lon Chaney Jr. is starring in everything.

This face off between the two main "faces" was an interesting study of both the behind the scenes mechanics of Professional Wrestling, and why Hulk Hogan remained as popular as he did for so long.

WOO HOO DINOSAURS!!

WOO HOO DINOSAURS !!!!!!!

However, few moments summarize why I enjoy the goofiness mixed with athleticism mixed with behind the scenes connections of old school WWF more than this one.
Other Disclaimer- I knew I would enjoy writing these, but I am having far more fun than the large amount anticipated. Therefore, the length of them will continue to creep up as I fill them with more entertaining (to me) asides. I do hope others are enjoying these, but that isn't the main focus as I am having a ball.
Other Other Disclaimer- I write to keep myself sane and focused, and to make people laugh. There are other things weighing on my mind that would do none of these if I wrote exclusively about them. Before getting back to the fun- make sure you're registered to vote, and vote like the "inalienable" rights and freedoms and also the safety of you and your loved ones are in jeopardy...because they are.

It's truly amazing how connected these films all are, and how they carry the story through them. Sixty-five years before Tony Stark showed up at the bar General Thunderbolt Ross was in, the tales from one film series and a whole separate movie met head on in this very early shared universe.

In my experience (which I've been spending way too long providing evidence of) Ted Dibiase, "The Million Dollar Man" is the greatest pure heel that has ever come out of professional wrestling.

Doctor Strange, The Multiverse of Madness came out...
a while ago, apparently.
This is the problem with getting way ahead on posts. Sure I sleep better, but the timeliness is a bit compromised. On the positive side, I feel less guilty about spoilers.

Well, It was filmed a week and a half before airing.
Therefore, I got to see it pretend to be live.
But that's wrestling for ya.

He brings so much soul to the part, as always. Yet, sadly, when they recycled the already recycled Ancient Egypt footage in any of his three turns as Kharis, they didn't bother to add him in.
