Look, I want to see a movie where a bunch of teens run through corn fields. I think it’s just as exciting as The Maze Runner.
Hey, South Africa, uhm… let’s work on this. Read the rest of this entry
Last time on Anybody But Jeb!, we saw Donald Trump cement his standing as the Randle McMurphy of the stage while Scott Walker’s performance pushed his numbers from “legitimate candidate” to “one of several people we’re just waiting to drop out.” Did episode 2 change anything for these candidates? And did Jeb do well enough to get his numbers to start swinging toward the two front-runners? Keep in mind that the series finale episode of Anybody But Mitt! was called, “Meh, Let’s Just Go With Mitt.” Read the rest of this entry
If you go into a store and ask for watermelon and they hand you a pound of coffee, that’s their fault. If you by a ticket to go see a movie directed by John Woo and are disappointed its not like the first one (as helmed by Brian De Palma), that’s on you. John Woo action movies are a genre unto themselves and while I tend to think this was a mistake for the franchise, they’ve clearly recovered from this installment and now, it’s simply an early twenty-first century oddity doused in Limp Bizkit’s… bisque.

I am by no means a James Bond aficionado, but if you’d of told kid-me that I’d like the Mission Impossible movie series more than 007’s alcohol infused, STD covered adventures, I’d of sad you were nuts, and I’d have been wrong. Rogue Nation is, for me, the final iteration it takes for me to realize that Ethan Hunt is just as credible as any other legendary action character and, in a lot of ways, more so.
Oh, and I liked the movie, too. Read the rest of this entry
You know it’s coming – at some point, Hollywood will reboot Back to the Future and give us all new zany adventures that feature a white protagonist inspiring black characters. In the original, Marty inspired a guy sweeping the floor to become the mayor of his town and then went on to chicken-or-the-egg Chuck Berry’s “Johnny B. Goode.”
ASIDE: This is probably why I prefer Back to the Future Part II rather than the original; the sequel features no Oedipus style incest nor does it try to take credit for the invention of rock and roll or the civil rights movement away from African Americans and bestow it upon a white teenager.*
Anyway, when they do finally get around to remaking Back to the Future, it’s going to take place in the 1970s and go a little something like this:
I’m a fan of screenwriter Max Landis (Twitter handle @Uptomyknees) and a few weeks ago, it occurred to me that I could probably follow him on Twitter, so I did. I guess I shouldn’t be surprised he’s a frequent Tweeter, but brother, can that guy ever Tweet. He’s the Tweetest Tweeter whoever Tweeted.
If you use WordPress for the backend of your site, you should be familiar with the spam content feature because if you do any traffic at all, you’ll get spam comments. They’re not always this obvious – they’re usually more of the, “Hello, this post is very informative and I will be sure to bookmark it for future reference” or something like that, but with lower grammar standards. Then you get these, a keyword stuffer from the late 1990s, selling a product that’s totally irrelevant to the post. Read the rest of this entry
Sega does what Ninten-Don’t (no, not stay a viable video game console company) – they use euphemistic language in their ads. They’re not the first to make the “you’re playing with your joystick” joke, but they were probably the last because now we have the Playstation Motion Controller, and it doesn’t get any more obvious than that.
