He sees himself as a self-styled social scientist, a spy in the baffling adult world surrounding him, and a budding, hormone-driven emotional explorer – in other words,Oliver is stealthily (and perhaps a bit more nervously than he’d ever admit) nosing his way forward through the murky and uniquely perilous waters of adolescence… His objectives?

BAD SANTA  -  Stick this one in your stocking!
The Christmas season just got a lot less joyous in this very dark comedy. Willie T. Stokes (Billy Bob Thornton) is a con man and a thief who teams up with his friend Marcus (Tony Cox), a midget, for a very special scam each year during the holiday season. Willie gets a job as Santa Claus at a shopping mall, his pal tags along as an elf, and they use their employee status to crack mall security and rob stores blind just before Christmas. However, there’s one flaw to this plan — Willie is a bitter, foul-mouthed and perpetually grouchy alcoholic who doesn’t care for kids, and it’s all he can do to keep himself from getting fired while on the job.

Episode 73 : ALL ABOUT EVE / Top 3 Movie Divas

This week it’s Max’s turn in the shame chair as we conclude our “walk of shame” round by queuing up the (1950) Classic   ALL ABOUT EVE    Based on the story The Wisdom of Eve by Mary Orr, All About Eve is an elegantly bitchy backstage story revolving around aspiring actress Eve Harrington (Anne Baxter). Tattered and forlorn, Eve shows up in the dressing room of Broadway mega-star Margo Channing (Bette Davis), weaving a melancholy life story to Margo and her friends. Taking pity on the girl, Margo takes Eve as her personal assistant. Before long, it becomes apparent that naïve Eve is a Machiavellian conniver who cold-bloodedly uses Margo, her director Bill Sampson (Gary Merill), Lloyd’s wife Karen (Celeste Holm), and waspish critic Addison De Witt (George Sanders) to rise to the top of the theatrical heap. Also appearin [...]

As we take turns Queuing up films that (for some reason) we haven’t gotten around to it, this one is at the top of the list.

But the pressure of family friend Mr. Robinson (Murray Hamilton) to seize every possible opportunity inspires Ben to accept an offer of sex from icily feline Mrs. Robinson (Anne Bancroft). The affair and his pool are all well and good until Ben is pushed to go out with the Robinsons’ daughter Elaine (Katharine Ross) and he falls in love with her. Mrs. [...]
