Hey everyone! Welcome to the 10th year of our annual 24-Hour Movie Marathon! The tradition proudly continues as we all converge on Ottawa to partake in this fun “festival” (and probably cause a sure in shares of the company that makes Visene). Like last year, this current lineup is a good one, and we are all very much looking forward to it

Check out the trailer for this year’s Movie Marathon. Fancy!
Movie Marathon 10
Later this month our annual 24-Hour Movie Marathon will play for the 10th time. Can you believe that we have been doing this for 10 years? If you’re curious, or feeling nostalgic, you can check out both Dave’s and my take on that first Movie Marathon. Movie Marathon 10 will commence at 10:00 AM on Saturday, February 28th!
Here is the list of the movies that we shall be viewing:
- Some Like it Hot
- The Raid 2
- Out of Sight
- Life Itself
- Empire Records
- The Babadook
- The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai Across the 8th Dimension
The lineup is quite awesome this year. I have seen a few of these – but they are also movies that I am gladly going to watch again. What do you think?

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2014 annual report for this blog.
Here’s an excerpt:
A San Francisco cable car holds 60 people. This blog was viewed about 3,100 times in 2014. If it were a cable car, it would take about 52 trips to carry that many people.

Well, folks! It’s November again – and that means time for me to do something that my wife hates: grow a giant honkin’ moustache. This is, of course, for Movember. Movember started out being an initiative to raise awareness for prostate cancer. It also served as a way to raise research money. Well, over the last few years, Movember has evolved to include men’s health in general – especially mental health issues. I can’t think of a more appropriate time to shine a spotlight on that affliction, considering recent events.
So please, if you have any spare coins lying underneath your couch cushions, please donate to me and my team: just click here.

People are clueless in general. Everyone is usually so wrapped up in themselves that they never really bother to look and see that other people need help. It’s actually really sad. I wonder how much less negativity we would have in the world if we just took the time to open our eyes and hearts a little more.

Another 24-Hour Movie Marathon has come and gone. This year was just as much fun as last. As usual, our fan films are a lot of fun to make – but they are not without some comical errors. Check out some of our tribute film bloopers!

Welcome to the 9th 24 Hour Movie Marathon! This proud tradition has survived (some may say “persisted”) for some time now, and it is an annual event that I look forward to quite enthusiastically. A little more than a year has passed since the last movie marathon, and it appears that we have another strong lineup this year.
