How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World

There be dragons. Apparently, everyone read my rules of theater etiquette prior to the screening of How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World because everyone was on their best behavior. Thus, no complaints and we’ll get straight to a six-year old’s musings of the third installment of dragon training. What’s the movie we saw?How […]

Ruthless and The Oscars: 2019 Version

Yes, I know, it is hard to imagine that it is Academy Award season again. Due to plummeting ratings, I don’t know what the Academy has in store for us this year. Maybe another Jet Ski, who knows? It is no secret that none of us here at Ruthless were thrilled with the 2018 stable […]

Before The Devil Knows You’re Dead (2007)

There are movies that are familial train wrecks. There are movies like Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf that are deaths by 10,000 cuts. However, I have never before seen such a devastating wreck as Before The Devil Knows You’re Dead, a masterpiece created by the 83 year-old genius director, Sydney Lumet. This movie was not […]

The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part

A PSA or Parental Service Announcement. Before we get to my son’s insights on The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part, we need to review proper theater etiquette. I am a huge Lego nerd and my enjoyment of the film was significantly diminished by people who have apparently never been to a movie before. The […]

Can You Ever Forgive Me?

I think the first time I encountered Richard Grant was in the movie A Christmas Carol. Grant played faithfully the role of Bob Cratchit, who was the clerk for the miser Scrooge ( Patrick Stewart). There was no greater tour de force, however, than the role he shredded as I in Withnail & I. This […]

The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly of Americana

Goat at House on the Rock As many of you know, I just completed a nice road trip, a 2,000 mile journey through Wyoming, South Dakota, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Iowa and Nebraska. According to the world of Matt Cale there is no bad Americana, but I beg to differ. I present, the Good, the Bad, and […]

My Year in Reviews – 2018 Edition

Resistance is futile. Is it just me or does 2018 feel like it has lasted about a hundred years?  Between hurricanes, forest fires, racists, sexual harassers, gun massacres, and the systematic destruction of reason, decency, and ethical governing by the elephant party and the worst president this country has ever seen, I’m surprised aliens haven’t […]

Midnight Cowboy

MIDNIGHT COWBOY MOVIE REVIEW Movies have been often characterized as innovative, ground-breaking, trend-setting or wildly original, and these terms can be overused, but I cannot emphasize enough what a bold and courageous experiment in cinema was Midnight Cowboy. It is hard to comprehend that it has been 50 years since this Oscar-winning film was released, […]

Super Bowl LIII: Ruthless Edition

This is it, gang. I hereby cast before you all of the marbles. Every single marble. Even if you don’t play marbles. You’re getting the column relatively early, for me anyway, and you’re getting two picks. I can concede that we won’t get the best lines possible, but I’ve been following all week. Reason being […]

Superheros, Baseball, and American Values

With the inevitable cancellation of Netflix’s The Punisher looming over fans of the gritty Marvel series, I’d like to take this time to talk about the real reason the streaming network is canning the entire Marvel Universe. It has nothing to do with pressure from Disney, and everything to do with American values. Last year, […]

The Kid Who Would be King

Another legend in the toilet. Walking out of The Kid Who Would be King, I was mentally justifying it:  my kid loved it (his exact words), and it is a movie for kids, so that’s all that matters…right?  But parents have to sit through these movies too, so our opinions matter a little bit.  A […]
