The Nice Guys was a highly rated (7.9 on IMDB and 70 with Metacritic) movie starring Russell Crowe and Ryan Gosling. I was expecting an entertaining movie in the spirit of Lethal Weapon or 48 Hours , but what I saw was more to the tune of Dumb and Dumber. Dumb was a fat, […]
Film TitleThe Nice Guys
At least Russell Crowe did not sing.
Film Title10 Cloverfield Lane
10 Cloverfield Lane is a movie that should never end.
Mary Elizabeth Winstead
John Gallagher Jr.
I’m sitting here with my sore, demolished foot when I should be writing a movie review. Well, I am writing one, or trying to write one. How does one go about ranking, rating or writing a review of a movie? For one thing, for your opinion to have any credibility, you must watch the entire […]
The evil of a powerful and corrupt institution is exposed
Brian d'Arcy James
As everyone is now aware, Spotlight was the surprise winner for Best Picture according to The Academy. I was as shocked as most others who thought that The Revenant would be a slam dunk. I was wrong, so I was compelled to see what this movie was all about. Scratch that, I was more than […]
Always Be Closing!-Wait! That’s another rant, but now that I think of it, not really. The only way that Evangelicals can hope to maintain their numbers, much less grow them, is by intense recruitment, by Selling! From infancy, family members are indoctrinated and recruited with fear, guilt and intimidation. They are sold the myth of […]
Film TitleThe Revenant
The Revenant is about the triumph of human spirit, and revenge
DirectorAlejandro G. Inarritu
The weather outside the Front Range of Colorado was as good as it had been since early December, even though there were still plenty of ugly black and white glaciers piled up in the parking lot of the Metrolux. If you are to watch this movie, dress in layers, as the visual impacts of […]
Blackstar is Bowie’s departing masterpiece. I know this will be a shock, but I have never written a music review. I’m probably the least qualified person at Ruthless to do such a review, but I’m giving it a shot, just because it needs to be done. I like music, but am not a music […]
Film TitleThe Hateful Eight
Samuel L. Jackson
Jennifer Jason Leigh
The Hateful Eight It does not take a lot in this day and age for me to have my faith in humanity degraded if not destroyed. I want nothing to take away from my review, but I cannot help but comment on how many negative reviews this masterpiece received from the hordes of titty-babies […]
Rocky Balboa trains the son of boxing rival Apollo Creed to fight in underdog role
Michael B. Jordan
What the world needs now is not love, peace, tolerance, understanding and a lack of carnage and bloodshed. What this orb needs is not for Donald Trump to get inoperable cancer of the larynx or for every member of Congress to be ousted for their murderous support of the NRA. We don’t need an end […]
Film TitleOvertime (2011)
Overtime provides hit men, zombies, aliens, clowns and cake.
DirectorBrian Cunningham and Matt Niehoff
Tagline: Working late was never this brutal Not many workers are fans of overtime, especially on the weekend, unless they desperately need the money. Well, Max and Raph were not your usual workers, as they were actually full time, highly paid assassins, and part time cake and clown conscriptors. So, what did you get when […]
God bless us, each and every one with a bath towel or VHS
Michael J. Pollard
Scrooged is one of those “just can’t miss” films that came along with a fair amount of anticipation. Bill Murray seems to be perfect for playing the part of a Network Executive who robotically orchestrates his tasks, and that includes delegating who gets what Christmas present (VHS or a Towel). By now, we are all […]
