I think The Doors is one of the "classic rock" bands that have aged better with me than most others.  Even with frequent airplay on classic rock radio, "The Other Side" is still …

Much like Alvin and the Chipmunks, here's another relic from the past that's deemed a "classic" that I'm not a fan of.  Admittedly, I found this show amusing when I was a little …

*** out of ****     "Pirate Radio", also known as "The Boat that Rocked", is pure fun. And it takes a lot of craft to create what I'd call "fun". A film that probably should have been …
