The Expendables 3 (movie review)

We saw the third (and final?) film in the franchise you didn’t ask for (or didn’t know you wanted, depending on your point of view) in The Expendables 3 this weekend and I must say that, for what it’s worth, this is the best film yet in the franchise. Read the rest of this entry

6 nitpicks of The Amazing Spider-Man 2 (movie review)

We finally got around to The Amazing Spider-Man 2 and… hm. It was good – not great, but certainly good. It’s complicated, but I can at least say it’s better than the first one. Follow me after the jump if you dare – it’s going to be all spoilers, all the time!

16 Classic Episodes from The Simpsons, season 6 (and 9 memorable ones!)

The 6th season of The Simpsons is one I remember vividly. Even if I don’t necessarily love each and every episode, I certainly can recall the plots, some jokes and various quotes without much effort. Come with me and discover not only who holds back the electric car, but also, who makes Steve Guttenberg a star. Read the rest of this entry

My 5 Favorite Robin Williams Movies

I don’t know anything about Robin Williams the man.  Maybe there’s a bit of a man in his art – that’s what I think, anyway.  I could summarize his Wikipedia page for you, but instead, I thought I’d take a look at what he’s left us:  dozens of movies, tv shows and appearances, comedy specials, documentaries and so on.  Here’s my five favorite Robin Williams movies in no particular order.

Thoughts on Game of Thrones, episode 6, season 2

Replace “Hess Truck” with “boobs” and you’re good to go.

Episode 6 of Season 2 brings you the most story centric boobs in an episode of Game of Thrones that I can recall. And they’re not gratuitous! It’s truly incredible! Read the rest of this entry

Thoughts on Game of Thrones, episode 5, season 2

No boobs? There’s no boobs in Game of Thrones, episode 5, season 2? Surely it cannot be so? But… correct me if I’m wrong, but I think this episode was boob free! Wonders will never cease! This is probably the best episode so far! Read the rest of this entry

My 5 Tips for Losing Weight (that may or may not work for you!)

Now that I’ve lost somewhere between 10 and 15 pounds, I’m coming down from the mountain top to share with you (yes, you!) the secrets of my success. Will they work for you? I have no idea. Are these the reasons I’m losing weight? Again, no clue. But here’s what I’m doing. Read the rest of this entry

14 Classic Episodes from The Simpsons, season 5 (and 8 memorable ones!)

“Baby on board, something something, Burt Ward!”

I think it might be fair to say that the fifth season of The Simpsons is one of my favorites… Given that I’ve given 14 episodes “classic” status and 8 are at least “memorable” – meaning that none of them terrible and therefore forgettable. If you like coincidences and numbers, you may enjoy noting that my season 5 numbers are an exact reverse of my season 4 numbers in terms of “classic” and “memorable” Simpsons episodes. Anyway, here’s the list: Read the rest of this entry

Thoughts on Game of Thrones, episode 4, season 2

game-of-thrones-logoI hope no one finds this offensive, but my theory that Game of Thrones is written, directed and produced by the world’s smartest twelve year old boys has been confirmed by this episode. Read the rest of this entry

Thoughts on Game of Thrones, episode 2, season 2

game-of-thrones-logoNow that Season 2 of Game of Thrones is in full swing and the characters continue to multiply, it’s become more of a “I at least know who these people are, so I’ll care about them” sort of thing rather than trying to sort this all out in my head. Hopefully, after a few more episodes, everything will become clear. Or clearer. Read the rest of this entry

Thoughts on Game of Thrones, episode 10, season 1

game-of-thrones-logoHey, where’s the finale, season 1 of Game of Thrones? I demand action! I demand excitement! I demand… seriously? Boobs? That’s GoT’s answer to EVERYTHING! Read the rest of this entry

Thoughts on Game of Thrones, episode 9, season 1

game-of-thrones-logoWell, we’ve finally come to it – the 9th episode of season 1 and finally, Game of Thrones has let the foreshadowing pay off. Read the rest of this entry

Thoughts on Game of Thrones, episode 7, season 1

game-of-thrones-logoI’m starting to think my Episode 6 post travelled backwards through time as Episode 7 really put a push on the overall arc of season 1 in the way I wanted. And Queen Lannister Blond Lady invoked the title! She said Game of Thrones! SQUEAL! Read the rest of this entry

Thoughts on Game of Thrones, episode 6, season 1 (tv review)

game-of-thrones-logoEpisode 6 of Game of Thrones is what they call a “false sense of security” episode. This is the part where it seems like things are going well again for the characters you’re supposed to care about… right before things get really bad. Read the rest of this entry

5 points on Batman Begins (movie review)

After the disaster that is known as Batman and Robin, it seemed like it was time to let the Batman movie franchise die… at least for a while. Then suddenly, Christian Bale and Christopher Nolan brought us Batman Begins, and nothing would ever be the same.

6 points on Escape Plan (movie reviews)

Escape Plan is exactly what it promises: Sylvester Stallone and Arnold Schwarzenegger breaking out of prison. It’s at 49% on Rotten Tomatoes, which means about half the critics gave it a negative review while the other segment of critics were more positive on the film. I fall into the latter half, but that doesn’t mean I think Escape Plan is a masterpiece. If you like your action movies to have an 80s vibe to them, I think you’ll find this flick acceptable, but it’s not without problems. Here are 6 points on why Escape Plan is what it is, for better or worse. Read the rest of this entry

5 Funny Musical Moments in Movies that are not Musicals

I love movies and I love music, but I don’t necessarily love musicals. However, I do love it when movies will spontaneously break out into song. It’s a rare, awesome and hilarious thing that happens in the occasional movie. Here are 5 Funny Musical Moments in Movies that are not Musicals – just a few of my favorites.

Neighbors (movie review)

I enjoyed Neighbors. It’s not exactly the greatest comedy of all time, yet it’ll probably be the best comedy of this year. (And yes, I do have a calendar, and I am aware it’s only May.) I feel that I often prattle on forever about little details that most folks probably don’t care about, so, in the interest of coming to the point before I completely murder you with words, here are my blurb and score for Neighbors.

BLURB: While it’s not an especially memorable comedy, Neighbors is an effective and entertaining movie. It’s at 73% on Rotten Tomatoes, but I’m a little bit higher (see what I did there?!?) at 7.5 out of 10.

Now that I got that out of the way, let’s dig in and talk about what’s working and what’s not so good. Read the rest of this entry

Pan (a movie coming in 2015 that we don't really need)

I can’t imagine why anyone would think we need a new Peter Pan movie. The very reason Amblin Entertainment made Hook was most likely that no one had a new take on Peter Pan because there is absolutely nothing left to be done there. It’s Peter Freakin’ pan – it’s been done. What’s left to do… besides make shiz up? Read the rest of this entry
