Bad Times at the El Royale

Bad Times at the El Royale 2 hours 11 minutes, R for Tarantino-Style Gun Play (with comparable levels of blood splatter) Fair Value of Bad Times at the El Royale: $4.00. Its a solid choice as a streaming rental, solid without being particularly distinct, entertaining enough. Norman Bates, Travis Bickle, The Manson Family, and Nixons […]

NFL Week 6: 1.4 Billion Chinese Don’t Care Edition

One of the crazier things about gambling as a hobby is the duality of emotions that come with the territory, so to speak. Sometimes you catch a break and you’re on top of the world, hugging strangers and tossing black chips at the stickman while the dopamine and adrenaline go flooding into your brain stem. […]

First Man

Nerds. Have you ever ridden Mission Space at Epcot? I have and I love it. My wife has also and decidedly did not love it. I think her exact words were I have a headache and I might throw up. First Man has the same effect without requiring that pesky centrifuge to simulate increased G-forces. […]

Venom

Where have all the villains gone? According to IGN, Venom is the twenty-second greatest comic book villain of all-time. I have no idea what that really means because I do not read comic books. I would be very hard-pressed to name twenty-three comic book villains at all (unless we are just naming X-Men bad guys), […]

NFL Football Week 5: We’re All Animals, Just Different Cages Edition

Rats! Who bears the brunt of the guilt for ruining our would-be payout last weekend? Under normal circumstances, I would either curse the Falcons for giving it away, or hammer the Bengals for stealing it. Fortunately – or, unfortunately I guess – there is enough blame to spread around. Last Sundays fourth quarter in Atlanta […]

A Star is Born (2018)

Loose strings. Immediately after watching A Star is Born, I felt satisfied. For the past two months, I have been sitting through movies that range from tolerable to ghastly. Recently, I was asked if I had seen any good movies lately, and my brain took a nap. Christopher Robin was pretty good, but that was […]

Fahrenheit 11/9

This will probably be a short review, and I’ve put off writing it. Last Tuesday I sat in a theater with 3 other people and watched what was one of the most depressing documentaries I have ever seen. The content of the film was only slightly more disturbing than the fact that almost no one […]

NFL Football Week 4: The FBI Has Only One Week Edition

There are those who claim that my picks went 1-3 last week, and to those people I would say: let me take a step back and explain high school. I was number one in the class. Im going to talk about my high school record, if you’re going to sit here and mock me. I […]

The Best Pop Movie Award: Coming in 2019

The Best Pop Movie Award: Coming in 2019 And the Oscar Goes to: On August 7, 2018, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences governors, a.k.a. those people who continue to not recognize your favorite movie, announced they would finally recognize your favorite movie. You heard that right. Starting in 2019, a new Oscar […]

NFL Week 3: Brett Kavanaugh Only Rapes For Great Justice Version

Relax. Today the captive, tomorrow the conqueror. Those of us who subject ourselves to this chaos for fun and profit are used to the swings, but if you’re new, just stay the course and think long term. Though it would be nice, we are not going to win every game every weekend. Ultimately, we are […]
