The History Of Bingo Calls

We’re all familiar with the ‘two fat ladies’, the ‘one little duck’ and the ‘dancing queen’, aren’t we? Of course, we’re referring to Bingo calls! Bingo is a big part of British culture, and we’re sure that most of you have played it – whether that was way back when you were in school, at […]

Wrath Of Man

“Wrath of Man” – You think you’re soooo clever. One of the things I enjoy the most about writing movie reviews is learning new things. For instance, did you know Guy Ritchie was nominated for a Golden Raspberry Award (Razzie) for worst director? And if you were guessing for which movie, it was not for […]

The Godfather: Part 2

3 hours 22 minutes, R for numerous murders Fair Value of The Godfather Part II : $18.00. It’s overlong and the pacing can drag, but it’s an immaculately acted film with several stunning set pieces. Focus on the Family: The first Godfather was a study in the parallels between Vito Corleone (Marlon Brando) and his […]

Bull Durham (1988)

Well, it is springtime, or so I’ve been told. For those of you who don’t know me, which is pretty much all of you, I’ve been a baseball fan and junkie for a lot of my life. Not so much lately, but in the Golden Era of Mays, Mantle and Duke Snider, I was all […]

The Godfather (1972)

2 Hours 57 minutes, rated R for Gangland Violence Fair Value of The Godfather: $30.00. It is essential American Cinema. Fundamental to an entire genre of movie. But How Good Is it? The first time I saw the Godfather was on a date when I was sixteen years old with my first girlfriend, whom I […]

Mortal Kombat

“Mortal Kombat (2021)” – Finish me already. I’m struggling, friends. On one hand, I asked for big, dumb blockbusters to come back. On the other hand, not like this. You don’t need me to tell you that Mortal Kombat is a shit movie catering to the dumbest common denominator. That was a given; it’s right […]

Moneyball (2011)

I’m trying to recall the first movie that I watched with Brad Pitt; it was either 12 Monkeys or Spy Game, both excellent movies. Last night I watched a baseball movie, Moneyball, and Brad Pitt was again his magnificent self. Brad Pitt is Billy Beane, the General Manager of the 2002 Oakland A’s. Billy Beane […]

The Help

The Help is a lot like Crash, The Blind Side, and other presumably well-meaning but largely tone-deaf movies about race that don’t happen to star Sandra Bullock (as a longtime devotee of both Demolition Man and The Bus That Couldn’t Slow Down, I have to believe sweet Sandy’s heart is in the right place). However […]

Voyagers (2021)

“Voyagers” – No one can hear you conch in space. I hate Lord of the Flies. I hate the book, I hate the 1963 film adaptation, and I hate the 1990 film adaptation. If I had known Voyagers was Lord of the Flies in space, I might not have wanted to watch Voyagers. They got […]

Godzilla vs. Kong

“Godzilla vs. Kong” – It was everything I thought it could be. This movie is what I have been missing for the past year. Big, loud, dumb blockbusters that promise one thing. Prior to this, Wonder Woman 84 was supposed to be that movie, except not the dumb part. Of course, WW84 turned out to […]

Invasion U.S.A

Matt Hunter is tired. Once a proud Company Man, and one of the few on the payroll with full beard and bare chest, he’s more a Lion in Winter circa 1985, with nothing left to prove and no arms left to break. Leaving behind a world on the brink, he’s retired to Florida … the […]

Psycho

An early—perhaps, only—highlight in Resident Evil: Code Veronica features a palace sitting below a private residence atop a hill on a southern ocean island facility overrun by the bioengineered monstrosities it helped create. That gothic castle looms in the background, and as you, the player, forge an eventual path toward the perched building, the eerie […]

The Best Side Quests and Their Full Game Counterparts

Sometimes a side quest is so good that you wish there was more of it in the main game. It could be that the main storyline is so challenging that it’s nice to have a break with something a little more mindless, or it could be that the side quest is so engrossing that you […]

Four possible replacements for Steve Bruce at Newcastle United

Newcastle United find themselves in yet another relegation scrap. However, given that Steve Bruce set his side a rather meek target of 38 points this season, it’s no surprise really that the Magpies are fighting tooth and nail for their place in the Premier League next season.  For fans of the club, settling for 38 […]

Five Advantages of Casino Bonus Offers

Unlike brick-and-mortar gambling halls, online casino websites offer a plethora of incredible perks to their players. Besides being reachable anytime and anywhere, they provide innovative casino bonuses beyond simple free drinks during playtime.  The abundance of gambling websites and their promotional offers makes it nearly impossible for players to pick only one offer. Instead, they […]
