In her relatively small, but pivotal, role as Birdy Abundus (what a name!) in The Man Who Wasn’t There, she not only beguiled Billy Bob Thortons cuckolded, confused, and revengeful barber Ed Crane, but a much younger yours truly. It was a mature, impressive performance which hinted at the star she would become. It is […]

DirectorEthan Coen/Joel Coen
Tim Blake Nelson
The Ballad Of Buster Scruggs (Netflix 2018) is a Netflix original anthology movie by the Coen Brothers. It has a 93% Fresh score on Rotten Tomatoes and a 78 at Metacritic. Your enjoyment of it most likely will hinge on how much you like the Coen Brothers movies as a sub-genre. The film used the […]
Film TitleOverlord (2018)
WW2 was horrible enough, but behind the lines there is even more horror to behold.
Iain De Caestecker
OVERLORD Overlord should get an Academy Award for blowing up stuff “real good.” This includes planes, vehicles, buildings, people, and the (relatively restrained) budget. BAD ROBOT is one of the producers, and that usually means quality. The movie begins promisingly with a World War 2 shot that rivals TORA! TORA! TORA! (1970) in terms of […]
One of the best things about modern gaming is the sheer variety on offer. If you can imagine it, you can probably play it, for better or worse. Part of this is due to the lower barriers to entry which have occurred because of better creation tools, and a healthier development infrastructure, and part of […]
Freemium MMOs are all the rage right nowbut there are so many out there it can be hard to choose which one to play. The common themes are crafting, gathering resources, building up settlements, and venturing out to conquer other game areas. But, to be truly gripping, the game should have an engaging theme which […]
Film TitleEscape From Tomorrow (2013)
Disney receives a surreal middle finger!
Escape From Tomorrow (2013) You hear someone has somehow filmed an entire movie at Walt Disney World without Disney’s knowledge. You can imagine it will look like found footage garbage with key scenes shot on sets indoors. This movie was shot in shimmering black and white by a real cinematographer, and 99% of the movie […]
Film TitleA Very Harold & Kumar 3D Christmas
A very stupid and needless 3D Christmas movie
A VERY HAROLD & KUMAR 3D CHRISTMAS When this movie isn’t being gross with the bodily fluid humor, or disturbing near-rape scene, (just does NOT belong in this kind of movie) it can be funny even when it is being oh, so very wrong. Oh, and a toddler gets stoned, dusted with cocaine and takes […]
Film TitleSanta Claus: The Movie (1985)
Another unnecessary, gaudy and creepy Santa Claus movie
A bunch of cheesy reindeer
Santa Claus: The Movie (1985) You would think that the mash-up of Superman and the Santa Claus mythos would, at the very least, be interesting. You would be wrong. The Christopher Reeves starring Superman was such a hit that the producers decided to ape the origin story arc and apply it to Santa Claus. Interesting […]
Film TitleDeck The Halls (2006)
The Baby Jesus weeps from outer space.
[The Goat Chimes in pre-review] Deck The Halls (2006) is a delightfully funny Christmas Movie starring Danny Devito, Matthew Broderick and Kristin Davis. Of course, I’m just kidding as this was a horribly failed and vulgar attempt at a cash grab movie, with zero redeeming qualities. Just fuck this movie. It was just terrible and […]
Film TitleMurder on the Orient Express
A lavish train ride turns into a murder mystery that must be solved quickly.
Leslie Odom, Jr.
Murder on the Orient Express: Another Look The seventies were the Golden Ages for Agatha Christie novels being translated into movies for the big screen. Sure, one can argue that there were many versions of her novels or stories already, like 10 Little Indians, which had already been done many times, and with different titles. […]
