Thoughts and blowhard opinions…
I address here a few of the more puzzling criticisms coming from the very vocal group of Last Jedi detractors.
I Finally Figured Out Who the Greatest Ever Jedi Was and It's Luke Skywalker and Because Of the Events In The Last Jedi
Yes, I’m a fan of The Last Jedi. You don’t have to be but I’d like you to hear me argue that we get the greatest exhibition of the mastery of light side force use ever depicted in the entire series.
Los Angelenos Love To Complain About Traffic But Traffic Is So Bad Because They Absolutely Suck At Driving
It’s true. On the whole, the population of Los Angeles is just bad at this. Very bad. And I’ve been forced to research it exhaustively for the past seven years…
We all have our things. If everyone wasn’t always telling me what an iconic and hilarious scene this is, I really wouldn’t care. But that’s not our world…
This is for my fellow arachniphobes– which is defined as “a person with an extreme or irrational fear of spiders” and I take exception to both of those qualifiers…
In the summer of 1991, my friends and I got together and made another movie. This time we brought a finesse to the filmmaking that was unprecedented within Holliston, MA, within our part of the neighborhood, within our group of friends at that time.
No one really ever mentions the subtitles in this Tony Scott classic. Which surprises me because they kind of amount to a character unto themselves.
Before you grab the pitchforks, I’m pro 2nd Amendment and I’ve had a lot of fellow pro 2nd Amendment-ers compliment my even-handedness here. But we have a problem we need to face as a people and I have thoughts on it…
This was arguably more timely when I wrote it back in the middle of the Republican Primary in 2011 and the candidates were still debating whether homosexuality was a choice or something that could be reversed. Unfortunately I’m having to argue that it’s still timely and since I learned a lot of interesting things researching this one, I’m bringing it back.
This is from the old site. My passion for this show used to border on the unhealthy as I would be physically unable to abstain from arguing with anyone and everyone who’d dare criticize it whether their intention was to engage or not. And some might say I still do. Anyway, this was my reaction to it being over.
In the winter of 1990, me and some friends got a video camera and decided to try our hand at making a movie version of the video game we were obsessed with (or maybe just I was obsessed with) and wound up just kind of remaking Robocop in many ways (which we were also obsessed with…or maybe that was just me as well).
I have seen this film many times and will jump at a chance to view it whenever it is on. Yes, it is often harrowing and horrifying but I ultimately find it incredibly life affirming and cathartic in a way few films are.
Another one that I wrote a while ago. It’s highly likely many don’t even remember this movie and I don’t think that could ever be a bad thing. But every now and then I hear someone tell of how awesome Kick-Ass is…
I wrote this awhile ago and that may be obvious due to this being a franchise that hasn’t done anything in over 20 years but I don’t care. Lethal Weapon is timeless. It taught me how law enforcement really works. They just should’ve stopped after 2.
