Eight Wince-Inducing Moments in Movies*

Sew Tough! I was about fourteen when I first caught First Blood on home video, the perfect age to vicariously revel in such macho histrionics. Immediately afterwards, I ran outside, knocked the first motorcyclist I saw to the ground, and headed off for the woods at breakneck speed with an imaginary entire police force hot […]

Toxic masculinity. It’s a term bandied around by Nancy-boy progressives designed to make pumped-up, no-nonsense guys think twice about their actions. Bollocks, I say. What’s wrong with piling into a battered Ford with your mullet-headed mates and screeching round corners at breakneck speed while yelling abuse at passersby? Are you seriously saying I don’t have […]

The Jungle Cruise ride at Disneyland is one of the original attractions from when the park opened. It is filled with animatronic animals and shows every bit of its sixty-six years. Yet, inexplicably, it always has a long wait time because, well, I’ll have to get back to you on that one. For lack of […]

Bodacious Ruthless BBQ Beans

Well, why not share a recipe for BBQ Beans here at Ruthless? There is not much else going on, so we might as well celebrate July 4th with something other than beer and fireworks. There is not much that is more American than voting and BBQ, and we are about to lose the right to […]

2hrs 42 minutes (but it feels like eternity), R for wholly implausible violence Fair Value of The Godfather Part Three: -$15.00. Ordinarily, in my work day, my profession earns me about $30/ hour. This film wasted three hours of my life. I want my Saturday back. I want my life back. I want to be […]
