Guest Classic Links: A Mythical Monkey Writes About the Movies

The Mythical Monkey is on a mission. His quest is to document film history from its beginnings to the present day with a series of astonishingly epic (we’re talking 5-parters people), entertaining and fact-filled essays. He also presents an alternative to the Oscars, the Katie-Bar-The-Door Awards. Named for Mrs. Monkey, these picks often rewrite history in a hugely satisfying way. Thanks for being a guest linker Mr. Monkey!
