I have seen a few movies in my lifetime, but seldom had I been as moved as I was with this cinematic masterpiece. Blade Runner 2049 is a cinephile’s dream come true.

The Iceman Cometh. The Snowman. Oh man, am I proud of that tagline. I always try to avoid using clunky puns in my taglines, and this movie just begs for something hacky like “This movie leaves everything out in the cold” or “You just got snowed in” or “‘Snow joke this movie is bad.” For […]

Jackie Chan for the win. Of all the actors you’ve seen in a film or television, can you name one that appears to love their job more than Chan? You know when you hear he’s in a new movie, you are in. You don’t even need to know the title; just when the film opens […]

Film Review- The Foreigner (2017) Fair Value of The Foreigner: $5.00. Its worth watching on the in-flight movie, but there’s little that’s memorable about this film. Is This Film Worth My Time? The Foreigner is a taut and engaging mixture of vigilante action and espionage. Its one of the better, more well assembled examples of […]

NFL Week 6: The Oppression Is Only In Your Mind Edition

NFL Week 6: The Oppression Is Only In Your Mind Edition This just in: Mike Ditka sucks. Mike Ditka not only sucks, Mike Ditka is an archetype of suck. Mike Ditka is a caricature of a sort of outdated, humorless hard-ass father figure exclusively in the eyes of people who hate their fathers. He was, […]
