Abortion-No way, woman. Raped by your father? Too bad, enjoy your little bundle of joy. Raped by a stranger, even a criminal with former rape convictions?

Alien: Covenant- Some Final Thoughts And A Timeline

Alien: Covenant- Some Final Thoughts And A Timeline Alien was the first movie I reviewed for Ruthless. In spite of being nearly 40 years old the movie has aged magnificently and remains one of the best films ever made, and the best horror movie ever produced. We now have 6 Alien franchise movies + other […]

Never has a film made in 2017 begged more to be reviewed in the 80s Action format, but I just couldn’t bring myself to do it. There were more bullets flying in this movie than there were sexual innuendos. Nothing else mattered, the quotes and one-liners in Free Fire put it into the rarefied air […]

After I came out as an atheist decades ago, a good and well-meaning friend of mine suggested that I read Lee Strobel’s The Case For Christ. I was not enthused about this prospect, having slogged through Josh McDowell’s heavily footnoted apologetics, the book from Hell , but I read it. While being a better read […]

A Few Ruthless Movie Villains

Here are A Few Ruthless Movie Villains. Villains have been part of movies since their inception. We love them, we love to hate them, but most of all we know how to appreciate them in our movies. Here at Ruthless we have our own set of villains, especially in our 80s Action Movies, but I’m […]

After the biggest and most ridiculous gaff in Oscar history (If you’re working or driving, don’t text), Moonlight was belatedly awarded the coveted Best Picture Oscar, not by Warren Beatty, but by the gracious director of La La Land. The pressure to love and praise the 2017 Best Film was beyond irresistible. After all, I […]

Get Out is a masterpiece of impossibility made into a wonderful horror movie. It is a first time effort by writer and director Jordan Peele who is a comedy writer known for the TV series Key and Peele and a few other things. How about a great horror thriller with elements of The Stepford Wives, […]
