Dear John Carpenter,
Happy 55th Birthday! On this, John Carpenter’s Birthday, I thought I should take the time to let you know that John Carpenter’s Big Trouble in Little China is my favorite movie of all time. Of All Time! It’s positively the best supernatural kung-fu sci-fi action-adventure fantasy comedy movie ever made. It’s got a wrinkly old karate-kickin’ guy named Egg, it’s got a big ugly orangutan beast, it’s got thrills, it’s got chills. Plus it stars Kim Cattrall. *Meow!* She’s sexy.
I’m a sucker for a good sci-fi/horror/action potboiler any day, and John Carpenter’s Ghosts from Mars and John Carpenter’s Vampires and John Carpenter’s The Thing rank among my top twenty, for sure. It’s a good thing (no pun intended) that you included the article “the” in the title, because John Carpenter’s Thing might sound like a porno.
Keep up the good work, and have a happy John Carpenter’s Birthday.
All the best,
