Happy Sniper’s Day

From the Editor: We get lots of mail, and hate mail too, which we love. Here is a response from a real military man that I thought would be worthy of publishing. Guy D. McCardle, Jr. is the author of several articles on a wide variety of military related topics. Guy is a former Army […]

How To Deal With Conservative/Paranoid Facebook Friends

Facebook is pretty much the Gettysburg of the internet culture war. It’s the epicenter of binary bloodshed. Houses are divided, attacks are vicious, and no matter what happens, you will see body parts you wish you hadn’t. We can’t help it. Even the wussiest amongst us are embolden by the internet. I think Sir Friendzone […]

Nightcrawler

Nightcrawler

Synopsis

When planning your work is not enough

Director

Dan Gilroy

Cast

Jake Gyllenhaal
Michael Papajohn
Marco Rodriguez
Bill Paxton
James Huang
Rene Russo
Riz Ahmed

Despite being categorically different in tone, Nightcrawler is similar to Carancho in featuring cottage industries named in generic, often pejorative fashion. Except an honest assessment of Nightcrawler would do well without two things, to be fair: heaping plaudits on the performance by Jake Gyllenhaal, and; partaking in fanboy fuckery extended to a character that no […]

Is this film worth my time? Green Room is an instant classic of exploitation cinema, a taut and frantic siege movie that is evocative of Straw Dogs and Assault on Precinct 13. Who is this film perfect for? People who want to see punks fighting neo-nazis with whatever weapon they can scrounge, and people who […]

10 Cloverfield Lane is a movie that should never end.

Director

Dan Trachtenberg

Cast

John Goodman
Mary Elizabeth Winstead
John Gallagher Jr.

I’m sitting here with my sore, demolished foot when I should be writing a movie review. Well, I am writing one, or trying to write one. How does one go about ranking, rating or writing a review of a movie? For one thing, for your opinion to have any credibility, you must watch the entire […]

As everyone is now aware, Spotlight was the surprise winner for Best Picture according to The Academy. I was as shocked as most others who thought that The Revenant would be a slam dunk. I was wrong, so I was compelled to see what this movie was all about. Scratch that, I was more than […]
