It was 1934 when the irascible Donald Duck came to life in a teeny bit of a part in "The Wise Little Hen" and proceeded to steal the show. From that point on nobody could hold him back, and the much loved cranky character went on to be the most prolific of Walt's "fabulous five." Now for the first time, you can enjoy the Donald in all of his solo starring shorts from "Donald And Pluto" in 1936 to "Chef Donald" in 1941. This volume also includes a loving tribute to the man who achieved immortality by inventing the voice of Donald Duck -- and performing as his alter ego for 50 years -- Clarence "Ducky" Nash. Featuring exclusive introductions by film historian Leonard Maltin, this is a timeless collection from generations past for generations to come. .

Anyone who says THE STAR WARS HOLIDAY SPECIAL (1978) is better than the Prequel Trilogy has NOT seen THE STAR WARS HOLIDAY SPECIAL. The film is basically a series of events, wrapped around a boring story about Chewbacca's family awaiting his return home for an unexplained holiday called Life Day. The Celebration of Life? Can that really be considered a holiday? The original cast of STAR WARS (1977) do return for what can only be called glorified cameos, and have little to no importance to the story itself.

If you haven't figured it out, I am a Canadian. Don't hate me all too much as I am related to the Canadian Royals. They are a lovely bunch, well, except for Ted. He's a far left liberal, and talking to him is like trying to explain social media to a 70 years old.
Obscure movies, by gone classical tales that I find on the side roads of the Urban Jungle become all the rave for my presentations. As a member, one of the brainier children, of the GNF Network, you will see more or less of these favorites aired for one more time, well before someone attempts a more social political exceptionable remake. That or propose to hit it hard and hit it fast with a major - and I mean major - leaflet or keyboard protest campaign.Just so that their financially bankrupt version of what made the original beloved by all, has a chance to be more of a failure then what it was originally. Come to thing of it they are a real Mickey Mouse operation... who am I kidding they ain’t even at the Betty Boop level. yet.
Besides being a "Gamer" of horror, RPG and strategist based games, I am an abstract artist, a concrete analyst, and a ruthless bookie. I tend to comment on the state of mankind, while relishing on the day when my kind will rule them ALL... Um, did I just write out the inside voice of my head again!?
