X is for Xinb

Nope, that is not a word.  I cheated a little.  X is for Thackery BinX.  X is a hard letter - don't judge me!

Anyway, Thackery Binx.  My childhood crush from "Hocus Pocus".  Thackery is a young man who follows his little sister, Emily, into the woods to save her from the three evil witches.  But he's too late.  Thackery tries to protect her and for that, the witches turn him into a black cat, who is unable to die.  He's forced to live with his grief and guilt for 300 years. 

Jump forward to the 21st century, Thackery Binx is standing guard over the house of the witches since their spell vowed they would return on All Hollow's Eve by a virgin lighting the black flame candle.  Lots of stuff does down and Thackery gives his life to protect Dani, the little girl who reminds him of his sister.  Dani is sad he's gone and this moment happens:


Aww!  So a sweetheart!  I love Thackery Binx. :)

Did I mention this also happens in the movie?
Hilarious line!
And one more - Thackery Binx is played by Sean Murray, who plays Timothy McGee in NCIS, my favorite television show.  So much love!
I love my nerdy McGee.
Have you ever seen Hocus Pocus?  Who was your childhood movie crush?

  1. That movie was all sorts of crazy.
    I so did not know that was Sean Murray! Will love NICS all the more now. ^_^

    1. It is - but at the same time, I love all of it!
      I caught it the first time I saw it. I'm pretty good at obscure movie/TV trivia from things I've seen. I love NCIS! :)

    1. You definitely need to! It's the best Halloween movie ever! I watch it all year round.

  3. I suspect there will be quite a bit of cheating going on with the letter X today (I know I cheated).

    I haven't seen Hocus Pocus since I was a kid. I'll have to watch it at Halloween. Can't even remember what happens so it'll be like watching a completely new film.

    1. I saw a few cheaters today, but also a lot of X-Men. :)

      You need to watch it again! I absolutely love it!

  4. Sean Murray was in that movie! Have watched it many times, and now I'll be watching for him. NCIS is my favorite show.

    1. Yep. It took me watching NCIS once to catch him. I'm good at some obscure movie/TV show trivia - only if I have seen it. :) I like to match the voices of actors to their names. NCIS is amazing! :)

  5. Hocus Pocus was great!

    I don't know if I had a childhood crush. If I did, it's too far back in the past to remember. LOL
