4 reasons Short Circuit 2 isn’t as good as the original (movie review)


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.

If you can identify one of the songs by this screen grab, you are a gangsta. Give yourself a gold star.

You gotta love the title for this post, right?  Rolls right off your tongue.

Anyway, the early 1990s saw a musical culture in flux; it wasn’t the 80s anymore but Grunge Rock and Gangsta Rap had not yet electrified the landscape.  In 1991, the biggest song of the year was from the film Robin Hood:  Prince of Thieves via Brian Adams’ “Everything I do (I Do It For You),” and in that tradition, I bring you 2 Songs From The Early 90s That Are More Christian Than I realized At The Time, because I’m just noticing this now.  Read the rest of this entry

Let the rambling begin!

1.  ATTENTION:  Whoopi Goldberg is officially out of money!  Hence, she’s in 2014’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, which is better than any movie in the Transformers franchise… and that’s about it.   Read the rest of this entry

10 points on the ending of Interstellar (movie review)


I gotta be honest with ya; Interstellar had some cool ideas and I LOVE Christopher Nolan movies, but this movie didn’t work for me.  I like that the Nolans trust me enough to appreciate the difference between a worm hole and black hole, but wow, they sure did f@ck up the ending.  Here are 10(ish) points on the ending of Interstellar and why is ruined the movie.  Read the rest of this entry

My 6 Favorite Over the Top Crazy Movie Villains


over-top-crazy-movie-villains

We love to hate the antagonist (bad guy) in movies and the crazier they are, the better the movie (Battlefield Earth aside).  Sometimes, a movie villain will makes the leap from “Give me all your money!” to “Give me all your intestines!” and this is when we get a bad guy that is truly out of their mind.  Here are six movie villains that fit the proverbial bill.

Coincidentally enough, the villains from Over the Top don’t quality…  Read the rest of this entry

The 15 Best Comedies of the 1980s


If you grew up during the 1980s (or were simply alive) and you watched movies, you know that nobody makes comedies like that anymore.  I guess the threat of total nuclear annihilation is a good incentive to leave it all out on the field, because back then, people would commit!  As such, here today I humbly present to you my own picks for the 10 Best Comedies of the 1980s in no particular order.

6 things wrong with the new WordPress posting page


wordpress-logo

The new WordPress.com posting system is now the default; you can never go home again – or rather, back to the old posting form.  This has been an optional beta post page for a long time and it doesn’t seem like they’re ever going to change the things I thought they obviously needed to update, so now that we’re stuck with it, here’ my laundry list of complaints.  Read the rest of this entry

Ranking & Reviewing Kevin Smith Movies


I developed an interest in movies at an early age, but maybe my affinity for film would have flickered and died if not for Kevin Smith.  An everyman from my own New Jersey made movies I could connect with on so many levels… it’s hard to put into words, so instead, I’ll just go through his filmography and rank the movies from my favorite to the one I probably won’t watch again.  Read the rest of this entry

Try guessing the Top Ten Best Selling Albums of the 1990s


best-selling-albums-1990s

Having come of age in the 1990s, I thought I would be a champ at guessing the top ten best selling albums of the decade… and I failed miserably.  Pearl Jam is not in the top ten.  (Mind Blown!  They’re in the top 20.)  But when I sat back and took an objective look at the list, it all started to make sense.  Read the rest of this entry

3 Amazing Facts About American Presidents


american-presidents-facts There’s no subject I love more than U.S. Presidents… except for maybe Star Wars…  Star Wars is awesome.  But anyway, the American Presidents were (and still are) fascinating men.  Here are three facts I betcha didn’t know about George Washington, Lyndon Johnson and John Quincy Adams from “Oh, interesting,” to “Holy Potato Balls!” And just FYI, that reference to “balls” is foreshadowing.   Read the rest of this entry

5 Songs from the 1990s that are Subtly (or Obviously) about Doing IT


The 1990s… how I respect and fear you.  My formative years were… you know, probably like yours and if you’re still working your way through the teenage process, then I weep for you because social media must make it ten times harder.  With that in mind, join me for a look at a simpler time when songs would either subtly or obviously command us to take out our junk and bump the uglies.  Read the rest of this entry
