Are TV Channels Finally Dead?

Over the past few years, the way in which we access television shows has completely changed. You no longer need to tune in to a specific network at a specific time in order to watch your favorite show. In fact, you don’t even need to own a television to watch it! Thanks to improvements in […]

Why, thank you. There is such a thing as too much political correctness, but chances are high you have not actually experienced that situation.  The general rule of thumb is if someone is complaining about political correctness, that person is really just whining that he or she can’t be an asshole to other people without […]

NFL Week 16: Why Is This Man Not Laughing Edition

I have a legitimate theory that sounds sort of crackpot-adjacent, but everything lines up upon close examination, and I am going to share it with you now: Miley Cyrus ended the U.S. occupation of Syria. No no no wait wait wait it’s a really good theory, for real.   It all makes sense and checks […]

Are we sure this is a Transformers movie? As Bumblebee unfolded before our eyes, I had to keep asking myself if my son and I were really watching a Transformers movie.  There were no racist versions of transformers.  The movie was not exploding every twelve seconds.  There were no robots or dogs trying to hump […]

Aquaman

Film Title

Aquaman

Synopsis

Aquaman sucks.

Director

James Wan

Cast

Jason Momoa
Amber Heard
Willem Dafoe
Patrick Wilson
Nicole Kidman
Dolph Lundgren
Yahya Abdul-Mateen II

Spoon-feeding with a comically oversized ladle. I did not think Warner Brothers and DC Films could make a worse movie than Green Lantern, but Aquaman is that movie.  The point at which Aquaman stepped on my last shred of hope was when the octopus played the drums.  I am not making that up.  You do […]

The Man Who Wasn’t There (2001)

Film Title

The Man Who Wasn't There (2001)

Synopsis

When your wife is having no sex with you, but plenty with her boss, drastic measures are taken.

Director

Ethan and Joel Coen

Cast

Billy Bob Thorton
Frances McDormand
Michael Badalucco
James Gandolfini
Scarlet Johansson
Tony Shalhoub
Jon Polito
Richard Jenkins

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 […]

Widows

I will have a political-heist-thriller with a twist.

Director

Steve McQueen

Cast

Viola Davis
Michelle Rodriguez
Elizabeth Debicki
Liam Neeson
Colin Farrell
Brian Tyree Henry
Daniel Kaluuya
Robert Duvall
Cynthia Erivo

I swear this movie could have been better. I could swear director Steve McQueen has a longer filmography. I could swear that he has done a whole slew of movies similar to Widows. If we are counting the more than twenty short films he has directed, we get to that slew, but I have definitely […]

Trading Places

Director

John Landis

Cast

Eddie Murphy
Dan Aykroyd
Jamie Lee Curtis
Paul Gleason


It’s the most wonderful time of the year…that time when everyone debates what is or isn’t a Christmas movie. It depends! Is the movie about Christmas or is it just set at Christmas time? Well, while you guys are yelling at each other about which category Die Hard falls into (it’s the latter!), I’m watching […]

NFL Week 15: Rocking Round the Xmas Tree Edition

NFL Week 15: Rocking Round the Xmas Tree Edition Welp, who dares wins, right? Breathe. Again. Relax. Were still at 500, and if you let Lamar Jackson’s told-em-so start cancel out the Chargers crossing the ten-win threshold, even the props roll back to zero. No excuses, of course, we don’t do that here. It is […]

Prohibition Loses Again with Repeal of PASPA

Sports betting fans in the US have a lot to be thankful for right now. For over two decades, they’ve been unconstitutionally robbed of a simple right that many hundreds of millions of people enjoy the world over. Thanks to the repeal of PASPA we’ll finally be able to enjoy the dual pleasures of watching […]
