Update from the Den or “How I Have Been Trying to Beat the Winter Blahs”


Hey Gang!

Vic here with a quick update. Things have Been a bit quiet here in The Den, lately,  but things will be picking up soon, I promise.

Rochester, New York, has been having a bit of a rough winter lately and sometimes the winter blahs kick in about now. In order to avoid them, I have been keeping myself busy with a new per diem job, working around the home on some minor projects, assisting my Kids with School and Job hunting, lining up Screeners from filmmakers to watch as well as devoting time to my various writing projects.


I usually try my best to post some stuff I call: “Filler Content.” But I can fall behind even on those. So, at this point, I call on my contributors to help out and some are stepping up for my distress call for help, yet again (These guys totally rule). I do anticipate for things to all fall into place, very soon, so I can devote at least two days a week for reviews and other content.

I definitely don’t wanna end up like Jack Torrance, this winter

My good friend, Mike, from “Parlor of Horror,” will be submitting a new List and some new reviews are in the pipe!

Here are a few:

The Guns of Navarone

The Innocents



John Wick

St. Vincent

The Day the Earth Stood Still

The Babadook



On the Waterfront

The Taking of Deborah Logan

and a few more in different categories like The Bond Films, The Twilight Zone, On The Set and both Top 5 and Top 10 lists.


Thanks for hanging in there, everyone. I always appreciate your visits, feedback, likes and participation! It is what fuels both me and Vic’s Movie Den.

Always Grateful,

Vic De Leon


  1. Appreciate the update Vic. Sometimes life steps in, doesn’t it? Miss your content and also miss seeing you around adding some class to my reviews. 😉 look forward to seeing you back in the saddle.

    • Wow! Thanks so very much for the kind and encouraging words, Keith. Life does step in, definitely. Seems like lately, it is more often than not lol. As you may know, I try to catch up with everyone when I can but I appreciate cool guys like yourself for all of the support and understanding when it gets hard to devote the time. Makes it very easy to handle. I am very grateful bro 🙂

    • Thanks Wendell! I appreciate the support and the feedback man. It’s been a very long time since anyone has called me “Homie” lol. Takes me back 🙂

    • Thank you very much! That means a lot. I am grateful for the support everyone has shown. Feels great to have the gang in my corner 👍😁

  2. Oh… The Twilight Zone! That’s right – you’re a fan! I’d love to see Twilight Zone reviews. 🙂 Hang in there, dude – I’ve been really down on the blogging thing lately as it’s sooo hard to keep up. Do whatever you can whenever you can but don’t stress on it. 🙂

    • I definitely wont! I try to only write reviews when I feel it’s flowing and it feels natural. I try to have fun and don’t enjoy it when it feels like an obligation or work. I am not in a race or trying to keep up with the Joneses these days 🙂

      I will definitely come back with a TZ post very soon! Maybe a Top 10? I think you would love that 😉

      Thanks so much for you support and encouragement! Very kind of you!

  3. stay warm and look forward to ur full return whenever you feel ready. we all know how much time blogging can take of your day, so I’ll wait patiently for your return Vic!

    BTW, I’m doing a Rob Reiner blogathon in March and if u have a chance to s=do one review, I’d love to have you participate!

    • Thanks Rob! For now I am just posting other types of content other than reviews unless it’s from a contributor. I have been too busy these days to crank them out. But before long I will back on the horse. I appreciate your support, Rob. It is always appreciated man.

      I will get back to you soon, if I can help out in March 😉
