Director

Brian Henson

Kermit as Bob Cratchit
Ms. Piggy as Mrs. Cratchit
Gonzo as Charles Dickens
Statler & Waldorf as The Marleys

Anyone who has been reading Ruthless Reviews faithfully knows that I have already reviewed a half-dozen versions of this Christmas classic. The Muppets animation hybrid is the most underwhelming of the lot of remakes of the Dickens novel that I have reviewed. The Muppets Christmas Carol (1992) takes a slightly different approach to the Carol, […]

THE ABCs OF OBESITY IN AMERICA

More than one-third (34.9% or 78.6 million) of U.S. adults are obese. Also, not surprisingly, the medical cost of this obesity is staggering, as much as 147 Billion dollars a year.  I recently visited the magnificent Aquarium in Gatlinburg, Tennessee and was surprised to see that the Aquarium contained hundreds and hundreds of whales. Unfortunately, […]

Louisiana’s 6th District Congressional Race: Bumfights Edition

Man, I really miss Bumfights. Back when the internet was still a baby, some assholes would give low-IQ degenerates money to humiliate themselves by beating the ally-scum off each other in public. Since that was deemed reprehensible and subsequently banned in 2006, the closest thing we have to Bumfights now is your average congressional race. […]

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, […]

Jenny McCarthy Leaves The View For New Sitcom

The shocking move comes in the wake of the new show offering McCarthy more money and a platform to advocate her controversial parenting methods.

The Wet House

The Wet House -A Documentary by Penny Woolcock (2002) This is an incredibly hard to watch hour-long documentary on housing formerly homeless Drunks. I don’t use the word “Drunks” flippantly or judgmentally, that’s exactly what these people are. There is not the slightest hint of rehab here and no pretense at all about these down […]

L. Ron Mexico’s Three Health Tips to Avoid and Three Health Tips to Enjoy

Fact: The most satisfying act of revenge is to triumphantly fart at someone’s funeral.

300 – Rise Of An Empire

  In these days of endless sequels, prequels, remakes, reboots, remaquels, reimaginings, updates, by-the-numbers tentpole franchise installments, rip-offs, spin-offs, cash-ins, and bland PG-13 superhero blockbusters produced for the sole purpose of maintaining a studio’s legal claim to a title’s intellectual property rights, it is refreshing to behold an unashamedly gory big budget action epic that […]

Hackwatch: Darren Sharper is a phony asshole

As a Saints fan, it pains me to say that it appears Darren Sharper is a serial rapist, and I don’t mean he’s got his dick in a box of Captain Crunch. I mean he drugged a bunch of babes and sexually assaulted them like some douchbag perp straight out of Law and Order. Now […]

A Toy Story 4 Pitch

Kids’ movies need to change. They’ve sent us into adulthood with misguided idealism and outsized career goals.
