Lessons from the success of "It"

"The marketing was smart...they did a good job of using a "less is more" approach" - Jakey

 "This is a rare case of a movie that was perfect to remake: has a strong nostalgic following but which also kind of sucks and has a lot of room for improvement. You get the pre-installed fan base but don't have the pressure of re-creating and improving on a legit classic." - MJS

They're hit-and-miss on celluloid and television. For example, we always needed more personality from Hedwig in the Harry Potter series, that damn mechanical owl in Clash of the Titans is an anachronistic disaster, and is it sacrilege to say that 'Owl' in Winnie and the Pooh is the least engaging Hundred Acre Wood denizen?

The following list is dedicated to the Twin Peaks owl(s) and Archimedes in The Sword and the Stone (1963) who didn't quite make it but we love them. TFE's five favorite screen owls are after the jump

Hot dogs and BBQ?

Catch Up with Our "A League of Their Own" Throwback!

Happy Fourth of July, readers! It's been a busy holiday weekend, but have you caught up to our A League of Their Own 25th anniversary trade-off retrospective? Well if you haven't, here's the play-by-play:

Sports are an American past-time on national holidays but if athletics aren't your thing, maybe a dive into actressing will suffice! Have fun in the comments: which Rockford Peach is your favorite? What one Oscar nomination would you bestow this unnominated classic? When is it appropriate to cry in baseball? Tell us your League thoughts!
