Yeah, I really want to read Coate’s retrospective on “The Exorcist”. I thought about doing one myself, but I’ve been too tied up helping my parents over this week.

Michael is the most thorough researcher I’ve ever seen. He works very very hard to make sure the information he prints is correct. He goes after details that many would ignore, such as what city a particular theatre might be located. Some are located in suburbs with names and boundaries that have changed over the years, and he looks long and hard to make the location correct. I enjoy his work and hope he continues with many more projects.

I love this post about the return of the Jedi, this has been one of my favorite star wars for so long. 30 + years and counting of some of the best possible coverage and cinema in the modern world! Just great!
