Hankies at the ready, please. Yes, it’s that time of year again … the time when TCM Remembers. Yes, it’s sad but it’s also a true celebration of lives and legacies. (Plus your heart’s gotta soar just a wee bit when you see what may be the last Stan Lee cameo ever.)

To the idiots who thought it was a good idea to bring a fussy 2-year-old to the 10pm showing of Logan last night – sleep peacefully knowing that although you were rude, distracting and thoughtless you were NOT the most annoying moviegoers in the auditorium merely because the drunken stoners who loudly stumbled in about 1/3 of the way through (and left just as ninja-like about 20 minutes before the end) edged you out of that dubious honor. Nevertheless, I salute you and your brazen lack moviehouse etiquette and hope some other cinema patron with less of a sense of humor than myself visits you in the night ready, willing and able to shove a large box of popcorn shoved up your backside.
