Goonies Never Charge

September 29th, 2016

astin4Well that’s just not true, but thankfully in this case it was. Wizard World events can be maddening sometimes because when they offer pricey photo ops, you never really know going into it whether you can get around said professional photo ops and just snap a picture at the table for a lesser fee. Sometimes you can, sometimes you can’t. I definitely wanted a photo with Sean Astin, no question.

Rocco as Rocco

September 29th, 2016

ddr6My cousin Chris and I watched the move The Boondock Saints around Christmas of 2009, but it didn’t stick with me enough to ever be too thrilled about the celebrity shows that had reunions of the film, usually including Norman Reedus, Sean Patrick Flannery, and David Della Rocco. I did pick up Flannery at one such show because of some his other works, bypassing the other two. Reedus naturally took off toward the stratosphere of popularity once The Walking Dead took off, but David Della Rocco usually didn’t command much in the way of lines… or money.  Read the rest of this entry »
