Dead Again is one of those movies that leaves it all out on the field. It has excellent performances from Kenneth Branagh, Emma Thompson and Robin Williams (and, to a lesser extent, Andy Garcia and Derek Jacobi). I wouldn’t say it’s a great movie, and it certainly has some fresh ideas for the film noir mystery genre, but it comes up a bit short. Read the rest of this entry
America is great because it’s always permissible to talk out of one’s butthole. But the thing is, the internet has turned a shout into an ear rattling ROAR that everyone can hear, even elected officials. Yeah, Jade Helm 15 – it’s a thing. A real thing. It’s a devious plan orchestrated buggy the White House to impose Marshall Law on American Citizens by the armed forces sworn to protect them, and just because they’re Republicans! It’s TRUE! So true! The truest thing that’s ever been true!
With all this in mind, I bring you Jade Helm 16 – Marshall Law in New York City! The facts don’t lie!

An Open Letter to Men,
Hi guys! I hope you’re doing well, because as a gender… we keep f@cking up. It’s the Twenty First Century, but sexism, sexual assault and rape are still running rampant. Not only does the Congressional Committee on Global Women’s Issues handle five other things, but it only seems to have only one female member. We can’t even watch a Mad Max reboot without complaining that women have ruined it. Bros, this is not good. Maybe if all of these other bits weren’t a thing, we could get away with the “Dad Bods” idea, but seriously, guys, the least we can do is f@cking exercise. Read the rest of this entry
Every time we stay in a Westin, I can’t help but notice the showers and how they are equipped with one mammoth overhead fixture and then a second detachable shower head that looks like a microphone. And therefore, one can get their Ferris Bueller on. Read the rest of this entry
After watching Agents of SHIELD, Agent Carter and Gotham, I can’t express how enjoyable an experience it was to watch Daredevil on Netflix. (But I’m going to try.) Finally, after… I dunno, 10 movies and two TV series, Marvel was able to cut loose and bring us a reality that wasn’t too grim but still was recognizable as our own; or as close as we’d like to get. Daredevil is the show comic books fans have been waiting for since Iron Man first hit the stage. Read the rest of this entry
Ah graffiti artists, how you pull at my heart-strings! They create art and break the law all in one fell swoop. It kinda makes me wish I could draw. I love the detail on the mouth here as we are asked to ponder “Wake up” or “Keep Dreaming?” Those angry eyebrows make me think that waking up is not the prefered course or action and I do find it quite apropos to the airport experience. When one is traveling, you’re detached from the routine and sometimes, it feels that if you could just keep on going and never return home, maybe you’d just “keep dreaming.”
My mind tends to wander when I’m in the bathroom.
Only Fischer Stevens (racist 80s stereotype character) and Tim Blaney (the voice of Johnny Five) return from the original cast in Short Circuit 2, a movie that exists because there was money to be made on the brand. The first movie was a harmony of creativity, old ideas with a new twist and commercial appeal, while this movie just cashes in on the first installment. Here are 4 reasons Short Circuit 2 doesn’t live up to the original. Read the rest of this entry
