Allow me to begin by warning those of us (myself included) who approach new Ruthless reviews with the same sort of gleeful yips a hyena may emit when approaching the rotting carcass of a blind, three-legged baby gazelle: This will not be a wholesale evisceration of Alien: Resurrection. The perceived wisdom is that this movie […]

A run-on sentence, but with explosions. I’ve got good news and bad news. The good news is Transformers: The Last Knight is the third best (and third worst) movie in the franchise. The bad news is it’s still a Transformers sequel. Yes, you read that right and you are wrong – the first Transformers movie […]

You can take your stats and shove up them up your tailpipe. As a lifelong baseball fan, statistics are interesting to me, have been ever since I was a kid.

Prometheus (2012) The last time I saw a movie as incomplete as Prometheus was when I saw I am Legend.
