Once Upon A Time In Hollywood has to have been the most anticipated movie of 2019, and for good reason; the reason is Quentin Tarantino. You know you are going on a ride, so buckle up. Let me also say that Tarantino was as indulgent as usual, and likes to take his time and use […]

Near the end of Hot Tub Time Machine (spoiler alert for a movie that is nearly ten years old and way better than the one I am currently reviewing), there was this plot device. The Craig Robinson character, Nick, used his knowledge of the pop music of his revisited youth to reinvent himself as a […]

Actors Who Love The Casino

Casino movies are a pretty big genre, guaranteed to pull the revenue in. Just think about the Ocean’s series and although not necessarily considered casino movies as such, the James Bond franchise. There’s something about the glitz, glamour and excitement of a casino that entices viewers and makes them popular choice for producers to transport […]

It is no secret that 2019 has not exactly been a banner year for movies. So now we have a Disney remake of one of the most beloved and revered classics, The Lion King. I have watched and enjoyed the 1994 animated version with the great James E. Jones and Jeremy Irons, as well as […]

Didn’t see that one coming. Trailers always elicit an immediate reaction from the viewer in the form of whether or not the viewer will go see the movie. For a trailer for a movie like Stuber, most people will probably think “well, not gonna go see that piece of shit.” I say that because I […]

I’d tell you, but then I’d have to kill you. The battle against movie piracy has officially gone too far. Typically at advanced screenings, we are asked by security folks to silence or turn off our phones and not get them out during the movie. You know, like literally every movie does at every theater […]

At Ruthless, all sacred cows are fair game for scrutiny, skepticism and yes, ridicule. From The ABC’s Of Evangelical Christians to awful Christian movies like Saving Christmas or The Case For Christ, we enjoy seeing religion torn down to the stump of stupidity that it is. Bold and satirical movies like The Life of Brian […]

I have reviewed several mountain climbing movies and documentaries. Most of them are quite good and all are pretty fascinating. Recently I watched The Dawn Wall and then watched Free Solo, which was reviewed by Kevin. The commonalilty shared by individuals who attempt these feats is that they are all more than a little insane. […]

M is for mole. For my wife, time travel in a movie kills that movie for her. I get it – time travel solves any problem, undoes any death or event, and, of course, comes with that pesky paradox (if you change the past, you erase the reason for going back to the past to […]
