I’m not sure either side should win. As much as I look forward to many movies every year, none of them do I anticipate as much as Star Wars. Since writing movie reviews does not pay the bills (or anything but movie admissions, for that matter) and advanced screenings of Star Wars flicks are always […]

My Top 10 Favorite Christmas Movies

My Top 10 Favorite Christmas Movies Coopers Christmas– This movie is nowhere near one of the best Christmas Movies made, but it may very well be the naughtiest. The only reasonable way that I can describe this VHS film is the joy that a dog incurs when it eats its own vomit. Yes, it is […]

The Shape of Water

The Shape of Water

Director

Guillermo del Toro

Cast

Sally Hawkins
Michael Shannon
Octavia Spencer
Richard Jenkins
Doug Jones
Michael Stuhlbarg

There is a hole in your shape. (It’s award consideration season and I’m playing catch-up. As I tear through them, I thought I’d try mini-reviews. Enjoy!) The Shape of Water is another attempt by Guillermo del Toro to convince us he is anything more than weird creatures. To be fair, Pacific Rim was absurdly entertaining […]

The Ten Worst Christmas Movies

I hope that most of you have seen my initial The Bottom Ten Worst Christmas Movies Ever that I entered a couple of days ago. This list will include 10 unique movies, but A Meowy Christmas will still take its rightful place. Some Christmas Movies are awful, but watchable because of their camp intrigue. The […]

Kelvin Harrison Jr.

It didn’t in this movie. (It’s award consideration season and I’m playing catch-up. As I tear through them, I thought I’d try mini-reviews. Enjoy!) Nothing ruins a movie quite like failing to follow through on a promise. It Comes at Night is a title that promises us something coming at night. For an hour and […]

The Bottom Ten Worst Christmas Movies Ever

Here at Ruthless we love to get reader mail. We especially love HATE MAIL, or even more…Whiney HATE MAIL. A few days ago I reviewed one of the most obscure Christmas Movies ever. I won’t even characterize it as a movie, it was more like a 6 year-old turned loose with an iPhone. Anyway, my […]

Let’s watch some paint dry. (It’s award consideration season and I’m playing catch-up. As I tear through them, I thought I’d try mini-reviews. Enjoy!)

The Man Who Invented Christmas It is no secret that I love to review Christmas Movies. I am especially fond of the Charles Dickens timeless classic A Christmas Carol, and have watched and reviewed most of the renditions. The Man Who Invented Christmas is not just another version of the Scrooge tale, but an actual […]

NFL Week 14: It’s Only a Game Edition

And back down to Earth we crash. Some days you’re the stick, some days the drum. As per the rules I won’t apologize for anything but I will admit that I sort of stopped caring about the outcome of the Monday night game when the Ryan Shazier hit took place. It seems trite to say […]

Does Royal Vegas Boast a Wonderful Gaming Kingdom?

When it comes to glitz and glamour with a touch of class, you can’t really aim much higher with a name than by calling yourself Royal Vegas! Indeed, with the Royal aspect hinting that you’re a high society grandee, and the Vegas aspect showing that you like a bit of the high life, the name […]
