My Thoughts on The Fate of the Furious (SPOILERS)

Prologue: Work is still stupid busy: and I am running a half marathon this coming weekend that I am horribly unprepared for.  In my post from April 5th I stated that I owe posts for March 6th, 13th, 20th, 27th, and April 3rd: five total.  I have posted two posts since then,...

Batman v. Superman “isn’t what Warner Bros. had been hoping for thus far”? NO SHIT, FOLKS.

So I just read this article: http://www.comicbookresources.com/article/report-batman-v-superman-response-could-lead-to-major-shifts-in-dc-films-plans Man of Steel was, at best, underwhelming.  I could dissect everything wrong with the film, but that would derail this whole post.  The most basic way to convey the sins of MoS is by pointing out what it isn’t. It isn’t Captain America: The...

Deadpool and Zoolander 2: I watched both this weekend.

Shannon loves Zoolander.  LOVES IT.  I think it’s okay, but it’s never been super impactful as a comedy for me.  I, mean, I laughed… but LAUGHED. Except once. The gas station scene. Flash forward to now.  Zoolander 2 and Deadpool both came out this weekend.  I don’t often see two...

I Finished Watching Mr. Robot

As I mentioned in an earlier blog post, I had started watching Mr. Robot because I had heard that it not only won the Golden Globe for Best TV Drama, but also the Golden Globe for Best Supporting Actor in a TV Series… but Christian Slater. Growing up, I loved...

My Predilection for Watching Movie Series

I don’t know it’s a mild form of OCD, but I have a fixation on watching things (and sometimes re-watching) things to completion.  The incorporation of iTunes as our primary media collection at home has made this MUCH easier since I can continue watching something when I’m away from home....

My Current Fascination for Documentaries.

Shannon and I started watching Making a Murderer.  I’m only on the first episode (of ten) but everyone tells me how amazing is, so I have some pretty high hopes. That said, we’ve been on a documentary kick since last summer.  HBO and Netflix seem to be great sources for finding...

Everyone has “that movie” that, when it comes on, you can’t turn off.

You know the situation. There’s nothing new on television that you plan on watching.  You’re not in the mood to commit to a full movie, so you just start flipping the remote to see what’s on.  Channel surfing.  Watching tidbits of random shows seeing if anything catches your fancy. AND...

Steve Jobs: The Man in the Machine

I recently got Shannon into watching documentaries and I’ve enjoyed seeing which ones she enjoys more than others.  CNN has been running ads for Steve Jobs: The Man in the Machine (which is airing tomorrow night) and she said she really wanted to see it. I pointed out that the same...

Is “You’ve Got Mail” a Christmas Movie?

As I’ve mentioned before, I’m a sucker for iTunes movie sales.  So when I see something on sale for below the $9.99 mark, I usually buy a film – pending I have good reason to add it to a collection. One of the primary “good reasons” dates back to the...

My wife loves dumb movies. (We finally saw “The Night Before”)

I grew up watching horror films.  My mother was a product of the seventies and eighties and the decades’ skyrocketing stardom of Stephen King.  She read all of his books and I would occasionally pick one up, too, to see what all the fuss was about.  (Reading “Pet Semetary” in my tweens...
