Neil Patrick Harris. Joseph Gordon-Levitt. If there are two spiffier three-name fellows out there, I certainly do not know them. And should they do a live comedy sketch together? Well then let us glaze over the profanity here and there and chuckle along.
And since chuckles are always welcome:
Dude. The Rocketeer. Come on! Back in the 90’s, before Disney bought Marvel or even dreamed of making movies like Big Hero 6 or The Incredibles, they put out this fine film. (It is based on a comic book, so bonus points if you knew that.) Joe Johnston would later go on to direct Captain America, and the two flicks together make for a great 1940’s double feature. Alan Arkin! Terry O’Quinn as Howard Hughes!!! The effects may not hold up, but the charm certainly does. Art Deco and Jennifer Connelly make for a delightful popcorn flick.
Oh, The Whistler. I was probably in the single digits when I first heard this broadcast and it holds the honor of being the first piece of media that scared the ever-living-patoots outta me. All kinds of creepy. However, it all wrapped up in a well-crafted story. The imagination gets put to work, placing all the voices and mental images in one’s head. A classic in my collection.

Happy Monday. Play nice.
